What is the difference between MBA and PGDM?

“What is the difference between MBA and PGDM?” asked a management aspirant on Shiksha Café.

Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) or Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM) or Masters in Business Administration (MBA) are both management courses at Master’s level. Both the courses have a commercial orientation and it’s difficult to differentiate between the two.

** Goa Institute of Management MBA Direct Admission **

“MBA and PGDM are both business orientated courses. The main aim of the courses is to equip a person who wants to move up in the hierarchy and enter in to the management field,” says expert Nikhilesh Mathur.

While both the courses have same outcomes in terms of employment prospective, there are some subtle differences. Below, we have listed five differences between PGP(M)/PGDM and MBA:

** Goa Institute of Management MBA Direct Admission **

  1. MBA Degree vs PG Diploma

At the end of PGP and PGDM course, candidates are offered a Diploma. However, at the end of an MBA programmes, candidates receive a degree.

Many students tend to think that a diploma course does not hold the same value as that of a degree. But that is not true. All the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) and other top B-Schools such as XLRI, Jamshedpur and SP Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai offer PGP or PGDM courses. Most of these institutes are autonomous bodies (not affiliated to any University) and conducts their own management course.

2.MBA vs PGDM: Syllabus

In most cases, MBA course curriculum is designed by the university. The core syllabus (and sometimes even elective subjects) will be pretty much same in two MBA colleges under the same university.

However, PGPM or PGDM courses are determined by the individual institute. This gives a certain flexibility to the course curriculum. Syllabus undergoes a change according to industrial requirements every year.

Universities tend to lag behind and change their syllabus after a few years.

“For people who are interested in the corporate world or want to be an entrepreneur, PGDM would be a more suitable choice,” further says Mathur.

3.MBA vs PGDM: Susceptible to Fraudulence

Since PGP or PGDM courses are offered by autonomous bodies, students need to be careful while taking admission. Many smaller colleges and institutes make claims or do not have proper accreditation status. MBA degrees are conferred by varsities, and hence there’s a lower chance of fraudulent claims.

  1. MBA vs PGDM: Focus

Both MBA and PGDM courses have common core subjects. However, some experts claim most MBA courses focus more on theoretical and technical aspects of management rather than adopting a practical approach. PGP or PGDM courses have an industrial orientation and focus on skills based on market requirements.

  1. MBA vs PGDM: Cost

It has been observed that most MBA courses have lower tuition fees as compared to PGP or PGDM courses. This may be so because mostly government approved universities offer MBA degrees. These universities receive financial aid and grants from the government, making the degree cheaper for the student. In case of a PGP or PGDM degree, students have to bear the cost of the entire programme. However, this is not an ironclad rule. There are MBA programmes which charge high tuition fees.

A brief on PGDM

PGDM expands as Post Graduate Diploma in Management and it is NOT a degree. PGDM is offered by any autonomous body which is NOT affiliated to any University. As a result, such institutes are not allowed to provide MBA degree. However, these programs are approved by AICTE.

The main reason why postgraduate courses are named as PGDM is because when an Institute is an autonomous body (not affiliated to any University) and conducts management courses, then such Institutes cannot offer MBA degree. Even IIMs, XLRI’s,NMISM-Mumbai,SPJAIN doesn’t offer MBA degrees; they only give PGP Diploma.

The major plus of PGDM course over MBA is that the curriculum of PGDM is more flexible. It will get updated from time to time. Whereas the curriculum of MBA won’t be like that, as MBA course is offered by institutions which are affiliated to universities, the curriculum will get updated once in 3-4 years or maybe more. The curriculum of MBA is more exam-oriented and covers the theoretical aspects, while that of PGDM is more industry-oriented and covers the soft skill aspects. In fact, PGDM makes you industry ready and prepares you for the market. An MBA course is for those people who would like to get a comprehensive view of the program, whereas, a PGDM course is for those who would like to specialize in their areas of interest, it’s more like having an in-depth knowledge.

While choosing an college for doing PGDM, one should make sure that he chooses an institute with a good brand name.

Typically if any PGDM is to be equivalent to MBA then the course duration should be 2 years, a 1 year PGDM will not be equal to MBA course. A two year management degree expands to Master of Business Administration, only Universities can grant MBA degrees. It could be foreign university or Indian University
