    What is the difference between PGPM and PGDM?
  2. Post Graduation Program in Management (PGPM) is a one year course and Post Graduation Diploma in Management(PGDM) is a 2-year course. PGPM is a target-oriented, professionals with typically 2 to 5 years of work experience, which transforms them further with an array of skills and attributes their name to business managers and decision makers. Candidates with such work experience, who are industry ready, and looking into moving up in their career ladder, PGPM is the right choice.

    (PGDM) is a Two Year full-time MBA course, which is pursued by fresher looking for a shift in their career domain after completion of graduation. Candidates who have less than 2 years of industry exposure or do not have industry exposure at all and wish to gain in-depth knowledge and insights, PGDM is the right choice.

    This is the difference:

    PGDM (Post Graduate Diploma in Management) is a diploma degree issued by AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) recognized institutions in a 2-years full-time program.
    B-schools offering PGDM course are autonomous bodies with industry-oriented curriculum which allows them maximum flexibility to constantly keep updating their course curriculum adapting to the industry development. It is at the par with the quality of education imparted on students pursuing an MBA degree.

    PGPM (Post Graduate Programme in Management) is not a degree but a certification course. It is a typical 1-2 years program, and doesn't possess any sort of recommendation as it is generally offered by colleges without affiliations. The biggest difference is that PGDM enables you to pursue higher education like Ph.D but a PGPM program doesn't facilitate you the same.

    The PGPM is 1 year course and it is for those who have 2- 5 years of work experience. PGDM course is a 2 year full time course and it is for fresh graduates. You can go for higher education after PGDM like Ph.D. ITM Institute offer PGDM courses.
