Title: 7 Criteria for Choosing the Right Pgdm Program

What is a PGDM Course?
  • PGDM stands for Post Graduate Diploma in
    Management, a two-year business management
    programme that focuses on industry needs and
    assists management aspirants in developing
    important hard and soft skills to become
    industry-ready managers. Only universities
    governed by the University Grants Commission
    (UGC) are permitted to offer degrees, which is
    why it is a Diploma programme rather than a
    Degree. Private business schools, which are
    primarily overseen by the All India Council for
    Technical Education (AICTE), as well as
    autonomous business schools, can offer
    certificates rather than degrees.

Choosing the right PGDM program
  • It is critical that you, as an aspirant, select
    the appropriate curriculum and B-school to meet
    your career objectives. To get the most out of
    the two years you spend there, you should try to
    get into a top B-school. A full-time PGDM
    programme is a significant investment and a
    once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. As a result, it's
    critical that you make an informed decision. The
    seven criteria listed below can assist you in
    selecting the finest PGDM courses

Ranking and Accreditations
  • AMBA, AACSB, EQUIS, and NBA accreditations are
    given by national and international agencies and
    are used as a measure of overall quality in
    management education. For benchmarking, these
    accreditations take into account a variety of
    factors such as faculty quality, curriculum,
    facilities, teaching methodology, and so on.
  • Rankings can also be used to assess a program's
    quality. Both the government and commercial
    organisations rank business schools.

Curriculum and Faculty
  • A top-tier PGDM programme is well-known for its
    industry-oriented curriculum. For example,
    today's organisations are increasingly
    data-driven, and understanding of developing
    technology such as Artificial Intelligence,
    Machine Learning, Business Analytics, and Design
    Thinking is in high demand.
  • Faculty that are actively involved in research
    and have a thorough understanding of the industry
    as a result of their expertise provide students
    with a promising value proposition in the shape
    of relevance and new teaching methodologies. You
    can find this information by searching the online
    faculty directory of various business schools.

Alumni and Peer Group
  • The peer group is an important aspect of the PGDM
    experience. A strong peer group should include
    students from various backgrounds so that they
    may provide a variety of viewpoints to the
    classroom. Examine the class profiles of current
    PGDM students at the b-schools you're considering
    to get a sense of the many learning opportunities
    accessible to you.
  • Also, check up graduates on these universities'
    websites or simply search for them on LinkedIn to
    see what they're up to, connect with them, and
    learn how the programme has helped them.

Summer Internships
  • Summer internships and actual projects are
    essential components of a good PGDM programme.
    Students are hired as interns by corporations,
    and they get to work on real-world business
    problems while being mentored by industry
    experts. This practical experience helps students
    comprehend company processes and serves as a
    foundation for applying and implementing
    management principles and models.

International Immersion
  • Your post graduation course can benefit greatly
    from international experience. A business school
    that offers International Immersion or Student
    Exchange programmes enhances the value
    proposition of its PGDM programme by allowing
    students to immerse themselves in a foreign
    culture, interact with people from various
    countries, understand their behaviour, and gain a
    global perspective.

Placement Reports
  • This is the most important factor to consider
    while selecting a PGDM programme from a specific
    business school. Aspirants frequently check for
    the average, highest, and lowest incomes
    available and PGDM course fees. Many people's
    search ends there. While this is an important
    aspect to consider when evaluating the return on
    investment, it is not the only one. It's
    important to consider the firms that come to
    visit, the industries they represent, and the
    responsibilities they play in the students'
    lives. Return to your alumni research and
    discover where they have progressed in the years
    since graduation. This will give you a better
    idea of how the programme will help you in the
    long run.

  • You can filter and categorise institutions and
    shortlist some of them by considering these 7
    criteria for choosing the proper PGDM course. It
    is preferable to investigate every facet of the
    institution before applying, as your future
    career is at stake.
