  • Better marketability of course
  • Strong development of soft skills
  • Prepare students for high end corporate jobs
  • More intensive course structure

One advantage of autonomous colleges like IIMs, XLRI etc., who offer PGDM/PGP courses, is that they can follow their own syllabus and can update the syllabus as per the changing industry needs. This way they can keep the trend of the day without losing academic standards and credentials. Keeping the course industry relevant attracts better placements for students and improves the marketability of the course.

PGDM from renowned B schools give high salary package to a fresher from the initial years of his/her career building. Corporate industries normally prefer PGDM from top B schools rather than MBA. It is to be noted that a big majority of top business schools in India offer PGDM or PGP and not MBA. The attention on soft skill development and personality in PGDM programs help the students to be well organized and focused. Normally the PGDM programs equip the students to handle high profile management posts in high end business ambience.
