    about choosing the right course that would take
    one closer to ones aspirations.
  • More often than not, career decisions are
    informed. Its either inspired from a friend,
    relative or close acquaintance or encouraged by
    the online platform where websites, reviews and
    blogs dominate the students mind.
  • Sad thing is neither of these ways actually helps
    a person to choose a career thats perfectly cut
    out for them.
  • Presently, people have lots of sources to gather
    information but hardly any sources to get clarity
    on the available options
  • Therefore, before jumping into any career
    decision, its important to take out some time
    and see how one option is different from the

1. Universities Vs Autonomous Institutions
  • Firstly, one has to understand the concept of
    universities and autonomous institutions.
  • The former is a larger educational body giving
    affiliations to many institutions.
  • All these institutions make their curriculum and
    syllabus as recommended by the universities.
  • They are bound to follow the university norms in
    every sphere of education.
  • Further, only universities have the right to
    provide MBA degrees and conduct MBA-related
  • On the contrary, the latter is an independent
    educational body that is not associated with any
    university. Autonomous institutions make their
    own curriculum according to industry
  • As they are not universities, they cannot conduct
    MBA courses and therefore opens platform for Post
    graduate diploma in Project management in
    distance learning.

2. Outdated syllabus Vs Modern growth-oriented
  • Secondly, universities hardly take the time to
    review their curriculum structure which also
    includes the syllabus.
  • As a result, students study the same thing years
    after years and remain confined within an
    obsolete educational environment.
  • This however does not happen in the PGDM model.
    Here, institutions make lot of efforts to
    understand the changing dynamics of project
    management and thus shapes their syllabus
  • Theres more up gradation and revisions, all
    aiming at updating students with the current

3. Theoretical Knowledge Vs Industry-centric focus
  • Universities always have a tendency to emphasise
    on theoretical knowledge and bookish education
  • Distance MBA in project management and any other
    discipline mainly comprises books and theoretical
    study materials, with no practical exposure.
  • Students only read, mug up notes and appear for
    exam. However, they are not steadily prepared to
    face the real world.
  • Independent institutions on the other hand
    exercise an industry-oriented education. In
    Postgraduate diploma in Project Management the
    primary focus is on the industrial requirements.
  • It considers the skill-set demanded by the
    industries, recent developments in technology and
    the professional expertise that needs to be
    inculcated in every candidate, prior to entering

    that enables students to learn through
    experiences, case studies and practical

4. Entry-level skills Vs Senior level
professional expertise
  • Another significant difference is that of an
    entry-level guidance and an advanced senior level
  • Universities, with their theoretical outlook,
    prepare students for entry-level jobs.
  • After passing out from universities with a
    distance MBA in project management, candidates go
    through a yearlong training procedure and falls
    into the conventional scale of promotion.
  • Post graduate diploma in Project Management takes
    the students to a higher level of preparation by
    equipping them with all the necessities of their
    industrial job.
  • Such a course makes candidates fit for
    senior-level positions that further calls for
    faster promotions, quicker incentives along with
    other lucrative benefits.

5. Rigidity Vs Flexibility
  • Lastly, its all about confinement and openness.
    Universities confine students within a 360
    theoretical domain.
  • It has stricture norms and follows a rigid
    pattern of education. In sharp contrast,
    independent institutions are more flexible and
  • They take a modern approach towards study and
    ensure long-term growth and success to every Post
    graduate diploma in Project Management student.
