The PGDM option is a specialized degree that can help you launch your career or help you make the first move in your career to become a division manager or a department/ functional area manager in your chosen field of specialization, be it marketing analytics specialist, IT Cyber security specialist, certified financial analyst, supply chain manager, CPA, and so on. Launching your career after you get your PGDM or using the PGDM to take your career to the next level are both viable strategies.

If you want to move up in your organization or make a lateral change to focus on solving business problems (e.g. strategic level decisions) instead of functional area problems (e.g., marketing analytics, financial analysis), then our dual Specialized PGDM is the perfect route to achieve your career goals. Once you have decided which type of post graduate path is best for you, then our program staff is ready to assist you in realizing this goal.
