This programme allows students to balance the work life challenges and professional management commitments.

Approval of the Programme

The PGDM programme is approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Ministry of Education, and Government of India (In ODL Mode).

PGDM has an edge over MBA Programme

PGDM courses are industry oriented unlike MBA, which are more theoretical in nature. PGDM focus more on grooming programs, mentorship and industry exposure. A PGDM program is offered by AICTE recognized b-schools and standalone/autonomous b-schools, under the Ministry of Education, which do not come under the UGC. However, it is pertinent to know that the corporate world does not differentiate between the two. Graduates from both programs are equally eligible for the same kind of management jobs.

Being an AIMA student you not only get management qualification but a huge network which helps you to grow in your corporate ladder and also access to new management concepts.

For Whom

PGDM is open for both working professionals and fresh graduates who’re aspiring to work.
