Exclusive Interview with Prof Shrinivas Acharya T, the Chairman, Association of Indian Management Schools and Principal Director of the Most Happening Business School of Hyderabad “ Vishwa Vishwani Institute of Systems & Management by PreMBA.in to help students, who wish to pursue PGDM / MBA

PreMBA.in: What is the Difference between PGDM and MBA.

Acharya: Absolutely there is no difference between PGDM and MBA legally and technically from AICTE point of view. Business Schools offering PGDM Porgrams and whereas Universities and its affiliated Colleges offering MBA

Top 50 Business Schools in India offer PGDM and not MBA. All IIM’s, XLRI, MDI, TAPMI, BIMTECH, Great Lakes, Vishwa Vishwani and other leading Business Schools are offering PGDM and NOT MBA

The curriculum of the PGDM and MBA degrees are equivalent, although the MBA degree is examination oriented and concentrates on theoretical aspects of management whereas the PGDM is industry-oriented and mainly focuses on building soft skills. While an MBA curriculum is designed by a university, a PGDM course gives freedom to the institute to design its own curriculum. This is sometimes beneficial to the students because institutes can change the curriculum as per the industry requirements and changing business environment. A university affiliated program will essentially follow the university guidelines and changing this curriculum is a very slow process.

Before deciding you should take note of the fact that the leading PDGM institutions provide good industry exposure and the MBA schools provide quality MBA at lower budget.

PreMBA.in: Do Bank offer loan for PGDM and MBA.
Acharya: All Banks offer educational loan to PGDM or MBA Programs, however the Institution should be approved by AICTE and subjected to meeting norms as per RBI guidelines

PreMBA.in: How to check Status of AICTE approval and location of the Institution
Acharya: The approval information can be obtained from respective Institution and/or AICTE and all the students are advised to obtain a copy of AICTE approval to know the approved intake, course and approved location of the Institution

PreMBA.in: B-schools make various promises including free Lap Tops, free foreign study tours, high scholarships, guaranteed placements and many more.
Acharya: Students must be beware if they are going to take your final Admission decision on the basis of these tall claims, these are only attract students for admissions, nothing is free in this commercial world. This just might be a marketing gimmick and can turn out to be a trap for you to take admission to a particular B-school. Your heavy reliability on such claims may leave you disappointed as once you get into the B-school, the institution may argue and interpret its claims differently from what it looked in its first impression.

While some B-schools genuinely mean their promises and offer and stand by it after admitting students into their MBA programs, many B-schools just use these promises as a bait to get students into their fold and fill their seats.

PreMBA.in: MBA is offered by Stand Alone Institutions and Engineering Colleges, which one to opt for good education.
Acharya: Engineering Colleges have focus more on Engineering Courses than MBA / MCA course in particularly. I personally advise students to opt for standalone colleges only.

PreMBA.in: What are the Top Business Schools in India and also in Hyderabad, can please advice.
Acharya: visit www.PreMBA.in to know more about Business Schools

PreMBA.in: AICTE has recently introduced 5 Year Integrated Management Course (BBA+MBA), some parents and students feeling it is better than B.Tech, what is your opinion.

Acharya : Five Year Integrated MBA is a great course, if it offered by Business Schools.
