Why not have more of the PGDM courses and less of MBA?The autonomous institutes offering the PGDM course, which is normally considered as equivalent to the MBA course of any recognized University, positively have far better standards than the latter.
This happens because the PGDM institutes have freedom in changing their syllabus in line with the latest market trends and they also go on updating their syllabus to become highly skill oriented. Like, for example, including a specialization in Supply Chain Management. This does not seem to be the case with the University MBA, where the syllabus has to follow University norms.
How do we get over this huge gap? Like for instance, many affiliated colleges of the MBA program, are not finding students, and hence are automatically closing down. So, will the UGC and AICTE do well to only encourage autonomous PGDM courses in future?
