We are confident that you will relish learning in such a vibrant and diverse environment, and that you have a wealth of knowledge, experience, and a unique perspective to bring to the learning process."

Western Business School (WBS) Pune is one of the eminent global standard business schools in Pune and India. WBS is an AICTE-approved institution, offering a two-year full-time Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) with dual specializations in various streams & PGDM /MBA ( Dual Degree as per New Education Policy) . We offer a variety of programs designed to either kick-start your career or advance it, while enabling you to confidently explore new industries and career possibilities that you may not have been aware of. Our curricula are relevant, timely, and continuously adapted to address new social and economic challenges in a global context.

We have four dynamic PGDM/MBA programs and five specialized programs in dual specialization, each offering a unique path tailored for students with diverse backgrounds and career goals. The first decision you need to make is which degree aligns best with your career goals. The PGDM/MBA option is a specialized degree that can help you launch your career or take the first step in becoming a division manager or a department/functional area manager in your chosen field of specialization. Whether it's marketing analytics, IT cybersecurity, certified financial analysis, supply chain management, or CPA, our PGDM/MBA programs can help you achieve your goals.

Both launching your career after completing your PGDM and using the PGDM to elevate your career are viable strategies. If you want to start your career but require the confidence and business training to enter a new industry, our accelerated full-time PGDM program is designed for just that. If you're looking to advance within your organization or transition to solving broader business problems, such as strategic decision-making, rather than focusing on functional areas like marketing analytics or financial analysis, then our dual specialized PGDM program is the ideal path to achieve your career objectives.

Once you've decided on the post-graduate path that suits you best, our program staff is ready to assist you in achieving your goals. The WBS Graduate Business Program boasts a world-class faculty, a strong alumni network, and close individual and corporate relationships. Our faculty brings both industry experience and high academic quality to the classroom. Additionally, our college features interactive learning classrooms equipped with the latest technology, designed to foster an active learning environment for case discussions, simulations, and lectures.

Community Engagement and Global Focus

Community engagement is a vital cornerstone of our curriculum. Our students actively participate in projects for local businesses, collaborate with organizations like the Aquarium of the Pacific, and engage with various units within our institution. Moreover, in select programs, students have the exciting opportunity to undertake a one-week study abroad experience, enriching the global perspective of our programs. These hands-on experiences complement the theoretical knowledge taught in the classroom, providing our graduates with a well-rounded foundation to excel in their careers.

Allow me to extend my heartfelt congratulations to you for making the decision to pursue a postgraduate degree. I encourage you to connect with us to explore the myriad opportunities that await you. Once again, congratulations on embarking on a transformative journey that will elevate your career and enrich your life.

"A successful business school program aims to cultivate perfection within every student. In today's dynamic corporate world, the demand for young managers with specialized skills and the right attitudes continues to grow. A top-tier business school offers a comprehensive range of courses covering major business disciplines such as Marketing, Finance, Agriculture Business Management, HRM, Business Analytics, Operations, Supply Chain Management, and more. However, in order to thrive in the global job market, students must learn how to distinguish themselves among the thousands of graduates each year.

We take immense pride in sharing that, in addition to delivering core specialization courses as per the curriculum, WBS places a strong emphasis on life skills. Nowadays, corporations expect young, emerging managers to possess the right attitude, skills, and knowledge. To remain competitive and career-ready, we have established the WBS Finishing School. Here, we provide our students with comprehensive development that includes communication, attitude refinement, grooming, public speaking, aptitude building, mock group discussions, and personal interviews.

This holistic approach sets us apart from many other business schools that solely offer traditional or theoretical-based curricula. Our students benefit from a diverse range of experiences, including guest lectures, industrial visits, corporate field trips, live projects, summer internships, business challenges, and courses focused on innovation, research, and entrepreneurship (IRE). These programs not only impart practical knowledge but also provide real-world experience, ensuring our students are well-prepared for the challenges of the business world."
