We function in a highly competitive environment. One degree is not enough to get that jacuzzi or penthouse you always dreamed. The real trouble, however, comes after being done with the mainstream course that you are pursuing. Many management newbies often get stuck up in this situation.

After a year or two of experience in the management stream, students often get confused about whether to go for PGDM or MBA.  A Post Graduate Diploma in Management commonly known as PGDM ensures higher credentials and better job prospects. Although both the courses might have a common DNA but vary greatly. Planning for a PGDM course in India? Here is everything you need to know beforehand.

A PGDM might just give you the right amount of exposure needed to polish your capacities and build your expertise in the field of management. PGDM courses have a flexible curriculum and do not necessarily have to follow university standards.
