    Hello Friend,

    Basically it depends on your interest, i can say the comparison between MBA & PGDM.

    MBA:


    MBA stands for Master of Business Administration. This course is offered only by universities. A college can provide MBA degree if and only if that college is affiliated to a recognized university.


    PGDM:



    PGDM stands for Post Graduate Diploma in Management. Generally this course is offered by the Institutes or colleges that are not affiliated to any university. PGDM or PGDBM etc are generally the internal courses offered by the college itself.


    MBA and PGDM are Equivalent:
    The syllabus of both MBA and PGDM are more or less same. Moreover, they are considered as equivalent. So, one can opt for any of the two courses without worrying about its recognition or reputation in Companies.

    --------------
    MBA/PGDM----------------

    MBA(master in business administration) is a two year full time program which given by any UGC recognized university.A mba is a post graduate degree which are having different career opportunities in different fields.Many universities like amity university, pune university, UP technical university and many others.you could easily get MBA degree from any university after fulfil the eligibility criteria.A mba degree mainly focus on theoretical learning.


    PGDM (post graduate diploma in management ) is a diploma but consider equivalent to MBA and have same even more demand in corporate.A PGDM diploma is two year course which should be affiliated by AICTE.A PGDM diploma is mainly focus on practical learning which provided to the students through various industrial visits,guest lectures,work shops and some other activities etc.


    there is nothing to worry about PGDM course because that is equivalent to MBA and having same value and opportunities.If you don't need to worry about
    these call letter too.First wait for some good rank college and personally visit to the college,talk to students and then go further process of admission.You
    could check out some other colleges also which could match up with your score or to which you fulfil eligibility criteria.

    GOOD LUCK!!

    HI

    Let me clarify between PGDM and MBA degree.

    PGDM stands for Post Graduate Programe in Management
    MBA stands for Masters in Bussiness Administration

    PGDM is a Diploma course
    MBA is Degree

    PGDM is provided by autonomous institute
    MBA is provided by University.

    IIMs provide PGDM and not MBA as they are Management Institute.

    Both have equal value in India but many company abroad does not approve of PGDM

    All the best
