Students at NICMAR GOA are given the authority and independence to prove their best.


The gamut of events is what keeps the freshness of NICMAR GOA alive. Active minds and hearts are what this institute treasures and endeavors for. In other words there events redefine the very essence of post graduate studies. Moreover these events tend to dig, even the ‘slightest of talent possible’ out of an individual and make him/her feel enthralled and on top of the world.

The PGP-Advanced Construction Management Program is designed to meet the challenges of rapid changes in our society. Students are continually exposed to scenarios that demand structuring of unstructured problems and proposing solutions to complex situations.
