About TSM Madurai 

Established in the year 1962 by the great philanthropist and industrialist, Shri. Karumuttu Thiagarajan Chettiar, Thiagarajar School of Management (TSM) began with the aim to impart professional education to managers who had a burning desire to scale up their career potential with better managerial skills.

“TSM”, as it is popularly called, ignited its institution building with an Executive Development Programme (EDP) to enhance the skills of practicing managers and entrepreneurs in the vicinity of Madurai.  The success of EDP and the accolades received from the industry provided the impetus to kick start the Master of Business Administration as a part-time programme in 1972. A full time MBA course started later in 1986 became a quick success drawing the attention of people from various paths of life.
