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Autonomous institutes may design their own curriculum to be taught and upgrade it regularly instead of following outdated University syllabus. Reason for university syllabus being outdated at times is that it changes once in 3 or 5 years; which certainly is a deterrent in Management arena, where the industry and technology is rapidly changing.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