They are graduates of different streams but share the same dream – an exciting career in the gem & jewellery industry, in India or abroad. Many will continue to post graduate degrees in different parts of the world, but for now, the focus is to gain as much knowledge as IIGJ has to offer! There is also a good regional mix, as they come from different parts of the country.
This is the 10th PGDJM batch since the programme was introduced in 2016. IIGJ is proud to announce that more and more graduates striving for careers in the gem & jewellery industry as employees, entrepreneurs or to manage their family businesses are finding this intensive, power-packed programme at IIGJ Mumbai more than appropriate to give shape to their dreams for the future.
