The Tata Management Training Centre (TMTC) was set up by Mr. JRD Tata on 1966.[1] Located at Pune, awarded with the Golden Peacock National Training Award for 2007-08 in the field of Training & Development,[2] focuses on Management Development, enabling the Tata Group of Companies to collaborate and participate on a vibrant learning platform.[3]

Set up with the mission of creating and grooming leaders for the future, TMTC is Tata Group’s centre for learning and development. It aims to provide training to high performers within the group and act as a catalyst of change for Tata executives.[4]

Over the years, it disseminated over 50 publications which include management briefs, manuals, research papers, case studies.[5]

Dr. Shubhro Sen, Director, described TMTC this way: 'It is not purely an academic institution. But it functions at the intersection of learning and practice'.[6]


TMTC is housed in a gracious heritage structure, designed by renowned architect George Wittet, on rambling grounds surrounded by leafy trees, lawns, pathways and flower beds. The 15 acres of land on which TMTC stands once belonged to leading solicitor F. E. Dinshaw. In 1918, Mr. Dinshaw acquired the services of Mr. Wittet, the then consulting architect to the Government of Bombay, to build him a country home.[7]

In the 1960s, it was restored and turned it into a residential training centre though the original layout remains the same. The institute can house 60 people at its residential facilities, with two lecture halls and two seminar rooms. It also has a library of management books, journals and films. Along with its facilities for training and living, TMTC has facilities for indoor and outdoor sports.

Its facilities have been utilised by other specialised training institutes, including the Indian Institutes of Management (Ahmedabad and Calcutta), the Administrative Staff College of India(Hyderabad), the All India Management Association and the Indian Society for Applied Behavioural Sciences.[8]
