Homemaker, wife, mother, advisor, friend, arbitrator... these are some of the roles women were traditionally called upon to play. But today, women in business families are increasingly taking on new responsibilities and playing a part not only in family life but also in running family businesses.
They often juggle several responsibilities at the same time. Furthermore, these can be responsibilities that women are often under prepared for. How does a woman face the challenges of the modern business family without compromising her other roles, responsibilities and interests? How can a woman equip herself with the requisite knowledge and skills along with modern day management tools that she will need to face up to the challenges?
The Women's Management Programme (WMP) is an innovative programme initiated by the Centre for Family Managed Business (FMB) at SPJIMR to cater to these evolving needs of the modern day woman in a family business. The FMB department has launched the WMP programme to help women in business families learn and understand business concepts and at the same time get a better understanding of family and business issues.
