Master of Business Administration (MBA) and Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) both are management courses. But there is slight difference between these two which has to be understood by the students who prefer to study these courses. Many of you will get confused on hearing these terms, some of you might think both are same and others will think PGDM as a diploma and MBA as a Master degree.
Here I would like to make you clear about the difference that lies in MBA and PGDM course. The curriculum and focus in both the courses vary accordingly.
Master of Business Administration(MBA) can only be offered by the institutions that are affiliated to an university. It enables you to carryout further studies (E.g M.Phil, PhD etc.,) in reputed institutes of any country after completion easily. Theoretical aspects of management are focused more. MBA helps you in developing your technical skills and gaining business knowledge. The curriculum of MBA will be framed by the universities and the change in the same will be rare.
