YOUR WORLD AT CROSSROADS – YOU HAVE A CHOICE, RIGHT & WRONG
WHY CHOOSE A PGDM OVER AN MBA?
Let’s dive headfirst into the main question – what makes a PGDM better than an MBA.
Course matches the industry needs
Only autonomous institutes offer PGDM courses. It means that the course content is regularly updated, and is more suited to industry needs than an MBA program. While MBA courses go by the book, PGDM courses are more learner-oriented in contrast.
There is never a dull moment inside a PGDM classroom. The course is learner oriented, so the classroom is lively with discussions, role-play, activities, and so much more. At the same time, there is no compromise with the learning outcomes. With only the brightest minds of the country studying PGDM, you can be assured of interacting with colleagues who will match your wit and intelligence and engage in friendly competition.
The perfect stage for entrepreneurial bugs
If you are inclined towards entrepreneurship, PGDM is the best choice for you. You can pitch your project during your course and utilize the best opportunities for your start-up.
Sharpen your industry facing skills
The atmosphere of a PGDM classroom is unlike anywhere else. You will get hands-on corporate exposure which will brush up your interpersonal and communication skills. The lively discussions in classrooms provide a platform to test and better your analytical and decision-making skills.
Building a corporate network
PGDM is a practical course that focuses on internships, organization study and on-job projects. You will get ample opportunities to build a robust corporate network that can even fetch you a Prep Placement Offer. Moreover, these institutes have tieups with apex business houses of the country and even organize job fairs. No stone is left unturned when it comes to ensuring that students get the most lucrative offers.
Ease in financing
PGDM courses are offered by reputed AICTE recognized institutes of the country. Thus, the students can avail themselves of educational loans at low-interest rates and flexible terms.

Having our campus in JAIPUR offers our students many tangible advantages versus PGDM students in other cities: Jaipur has a bright economic profile that is increasingly getting diversified. The sectoral distribution of workers is mainly divided between manufacturing (44.64 percent) and services (49.46). Its major industries cover a wide-range of sectors – tourism, luxury textiles and ready-made garments, gems and jewellery, hand-knotted rugs, rubber based prosthetics, food and beverages, tobacco, mining and minerals production, automobiles and bicycles manufacturing, and machinery and machine tools. Consequently, Jaipur has an important micro, small, and medium enterprises cluster. More recently, the city has also become an important IT hub in the country.
Given this diverse economic profile, all three major industrial lobbies, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FICCI), the PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PHDCCI), and the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) have their regional offices in Jaipur. The city is also home to the Jaipur Stock Exchange, one of India’s regional stock exchanges, which was founded in 1989. JAIPUR is the North India hub for many important sectors like Banking & Finance, Retail, Manufacturing, and Trade.
Regional Heads and Recruitment Managers of many large Indian organizations as well as MNCs are based out of JAIPUR. This provides easier access to
leadership at these companies.
Compared to other large cities, JAIPUR actually has a shortage of quality PGDM holders, which reduces competition and provides local graduates with easier
access to quality roles.
