Which is better- PGDM or MBA? by Prof Surabhi SinghPosts by JSB
The PGDM is necessary if the student seeks specialization in the area of their interest. The talent can be effectively developed with the help of PGDM. The institute is considered to be best in PGDM course if it conforms to Quality and Curriculum as per the standards. Jaipuria School of Business has the uniqueness in their PGDM as it provides practice laboratories where students learn the best practices and experimental learning for a focused area.
An MBA is for those who seek a university programme to get a holistic view of the programme while the PGDM is for those who seek specialization in the area of their interest.
A Master in Business Administration (MBA) is a degree course offered by the colleges affiliated to the universities. So, only universities can offer MBA programmes. A Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) is a diploma course offered by the institutes that are recognised by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) and which are autonomous and not affiliated to any university.
The syllabus revision, innovative pedagogy, practice laboratory, 100% Placements, Unlimited Creativity, Immersion Programmes, International Collaborations, Industrial Exposure abroad, Internship and placement Opportunity abroad are some of the features which can be found in PGDM course but not necessarily in MBA. MBA is monotonous course if it is compared with PGDM where course updation is made on regular basis.
