Program Highlights

Learning platform - PGDM

Enriching & Engaging Learning at Suryadatta - PGDM

A typical day at SIMMC starts at 8:00 am or even earlier depending on your schedule with Health & Fitness exercises like Yoga, Meditation, Gymnasium, etc. In today’s busy world keeping yourself fit is a must. Early morning exercises keep you all day active and energize you. We at SIMMC believe that every student should be active all day long for a successful management journey. Post that the Academic classes begins with classroom sessions, lab sessions or outdoor sessions which is followed by a Tea Break till lunch. A sufficient lunch break is provided for students so they can enjoy their lunch. The next Academic schedule starts post lunch again followed by a Tea break. Later that a GD/PI or Presentation sessions is conducted every day for the students to groom their communication, managerial and analytical skills. The entire day goes into the lectures, assignments, class tests and brainstorming sessions, the classes end by 5.45pm. But that is not generally what happens in a premier B-school like SIMMC. Post 5.45 pm you will be engrossed in Club or Forum activity followed by MOOC’s Self Study Field Work.

PGDM - Frequently Asked Questions

There is NO DIFFERENCE when it comes to how the industry treats PGDM and MBA graduate.

A student pursuing MBA will be studying more of the theoretical aspects of management. An MBA institute will be following a fixed curriculum as it will be based on the university guidelines.

A student pursuing a PGDM course will be gaining knowledge regarding building soft skills and the programme is more industry-oriented. An autonomous institute does not have to follow university standards, so it is free to change its curriculum according to industry standards and change in the business environment. The course will prepare you for a senior level position in a company.

If you see, 9 out of top 10 B Schools in India offer PGDM / PGP and not MBA. This is the testimony to the fact that there is no difference between the two in India.

Famous PGDM institutes in India:

  • IIMs (Indian Institute of Management)
  • XLRI (Xavier School of Management), Jamshedpur
  • SP Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai
  • NMIMS (Bangalore/Hyderabad)

Updated Curriculum:

Autonomous institutes may design their own curriculum to be taught and upgrade it regularly instead of following outdated University syllabus. Reason for university syllabus being outdated at times is that it changes once in 3 or 5 years; which certainly is a deterrent in Management arena, where the industry and technology is rapidly changing.

Industry Oriented Curriculum:

PGDM programmes are determined by the individual institute. This gives a certain flexibility to the course curriculum. Syllabus undergoes a change according to industrial requirements every year.

Universities tend to lag behind and change their syllabus after a few years.

For people who are interested in the corporate world or want to be an entrepreneur, PGDM would be a more suitable choice.

More Practical Knowledge:

Most MBA courses focus more on theoretical and technical aspects of management rather than adopting a practical approach. PGP or PGDM courses have an industrial orientation and focus on skills based on market requirements.
