    You should take up an MBA degree when important factors for you are: Affordability as MBA courses are offered at lesser fee than that of PGDM, theoretical parts of management.

    You should otherwise take up PDGM as the syllabus for the same is updated according to the needs of the industry, contains the aspect of flexibility and prepares you for higher level positions in the industry.

    Hence, depending upon your capabilities and preferences, make a wise choice. All the best 🙂

    PGDM : Post Graduate Diploma in Management

    MBA – Master of Business Administration.

    If you have a MBA degree you can proudly proclaim that you are a post graduate but in case of PGDM you are a diploma holder in a post graduate course.Otherwise, PGDM is equivalent to MBA.

    The advantage of a MBA degree over PGDM are :

    1. You can opt for govt jobs mainly PSU where MBA degree is required

    2. You can do a PhD if you have MBA degree

    How does MBA or PGDM Impact your career?
    Indian Context
    In purely an Indian context, there is NO DIFFERENCE when it comes to how the industry treats PGDM and MBA graduate. If you see, 9 out of top 10 B Schools in India offer PGDM / PGP and not MBA. This is the testimony to the fact that there is no difference between the two in India.
    Career growth is same in both.

    Global Context
    Let us divide the analysis in Global context in two parts: Jobs perspective and Higher Education (like PhD or double MBA) perspective.
    From job perspective, there is no difference even in global arena, especially if you are coming from a reputed B School of India.
    From the perspective of Higher Education; yes there is a difference and having an MBA degree helps you a bit more as compared to having a Diploma (PGDM / PGP). Though, the difference is minuscule of just a point or two when it comes to the evaluation of your application form for higher education as MBA gets you marked against Masters Degree while PGDM/PGP gets you marked against Masters-Diploma.


    So, if you are not looking for higher studies, then whether you have MBA or PGDM doesn’t matter. What matters is you are coming from which college, its industry perception and similar aspects.

    Examples of PGDM/PGP Institutes in India are- IIMs ,XLRI, SP Jain, NMIMS (Banglore/Hyderabad) etc.
    Examples of MBA colleges in India are- IIFT , JBIMS , FMS ,NMIMS(Mumbai)SIBM (Pune), IITs etc.

    P.S.- MBA is cheaper and more affordable than PGDM. But choose the one which suits your needs (further studies in abroad or job in India/abroad)!
