Keeping this in mind, IIM Amritsar takes immense pride in launching our new Management Development Program - Communicating with Happiness in collaboration with Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd on the 8th of September, 2021.

The MDP on ‘Communicating with Happiness’, which was held from the 8th -21st September’21 aimed to assist participants in improving their verbal and non-verbal communication skills, within and outside the organization.
