Thank you very much for your suggestion. But I did not understand. Our PGDM and PGPX are equally promising. In fact there is absolutely no difference in the sense in the quality of education and training they get. In fact the only difference is in the following : While PGPX is one year, PGDM is a 2 year program;while PGPX students study 16 core + 8 Electives + 1 project, PGDM do the very same 16 Core + 12 Electives + 3 Projects + 1 internships. Both learn from the same set of faculty and go through various career enhancing courses such as "Career Management" : Executive Coaching and Building the Personal Brand and such extra curricular courses.   Only difference is in the number of years of experience that they come with. We have students with 4 years of experience also doing our PGDM courses. Currently a little more than 50% of the PGDM students have 1-2 years of experience and couple of them with 3-4 years as well. Every one of MYRA students get career/life  enhancing opportunities. For example 7 of our PGDM students have had an opportunity to go and spend a semester in Lisbon studying courses at the Catolica Lisbon School of Business and Economics and have just returned from Lisbon. And end of January 7 of our PGPX students would be leaving for Lisbon for a Trimester. Read what Bhrath, our PGDM student  has to say about his Lisbon experience.

Can we anticipate any fees increment for 2015-17 batch? What is the average salary of PGDM course? I have heard that MYRA follows a different pedagogy , how different is it and beneficial from others?

Thanks in advance

No. There is no increase in the fees for the 2015-17 batch. We have already announced the fees etc in our brochure and website as well. Our admission campaign for 2015-17 has already begun. Yes, MYRA follows a different pedagogy. It is called the Immersion Learning Model, where in our students study only one subject at a time for 2 weeks and then the exam and other assessment would be done and they move on to the next subject. This immersion learning model ( is somewhat similar to the training program model followed in the companies) enables students to not only absorb the subject better, but also retain it better. Secondly all our courses ( papers) assessment is continuous in the sense every day and every session participation becomes part of assessment. Many of our exams are "open book" exams, which means students can use books and notes during exams. The grades are  not based only on one final exam. Thirdly, all course are taught in a experiential learning model through projects and such practical mode of learning.  This is very different from most B Schools which still follow the rote learning methods. This learning model is beneficial to the students from many different ways. Firstly this allows students not just to to memorize  but to apply their knowledge to solve problems. It tests their critical thinking  and problem solving abilities. You can talk to our students to hear from them about their experience in this regard. Hope this answers your questions.

We have time and again repeated: Ours is a boutique school. We follow a very customized approach placement. Our Career Services Division headed by Dr. Nagananda Kumar, will help our students to first do the self assessment and then identify the kind of companies that they want to work with and then do the facilitation of getting job interviews. MYRA believes in creating job opportunities for our students in the kind of companies that they would like to work with. We promise to get a minimum of five companies to interviews to each student. We prepare students to do well in their interviews through our course work and also career management coaching and once the companies hire them, then we will list them. Many a times companies do not want to keep the salaries offered confidential also. So we need to respect that as well. We have listed the companies where our students have interned and we will list the companies where our students are hired.

@MYRAadmissions

We will strive and get consulting companies in the first year too. Couple of our students are working on their summer internships in consulting companies already. One of our PGPX graduate started working as a consultant in a company in Kolkata. All of these things have happened in the first year itself.

Our scholarship policy is as follows; scholarships are given for two years, but the second year scholarship is conditional. Based on the performance in the first year ( for PGDM), the quantum and also the continuation will be determined. We also give scholarships in the second year to those who have NOT got it in the first year, again based on performance. For example many of our students have been successful in continuing their scholarhsips in the second year. Some have not been ( reduced the amount) . And some students who did not get in the first year, were awarded in the second year because they were in the top 5 ranks. The first year scholarship is based on the past academic record, GMAT/CAT scores, experience and interview performance. The second year scholarship is based on the first year performance and also other behavioral aspects including attendance and general conduct.

We did not say we guarantee that stipends would be doubled. We said, we plan to double. What it means is it is our intent to strive hard to double the stipend and we are confident of the same. But we do not guarantee the same and we have not said so. Please note that MYRA never guarantees anything including-- unlike other schools we do not ever say 100% placement guaranteed. According to us if some schools "guarantee" anything, they are lying. Because we believe that "Nothing" is guaranteed in life.We make 200% efforts to facilitate great jobs for our students. We prepare them to face and do well in interviews through our great learning experience across the different areas of business from Finance to Marketing to operations and other subjects and our unique career management services that includes the whole nine yards of resume writing to interview preparation to self assessment of strengths and weaknesses and help working on augmenting strengths and working on weaknesses and many more dimensions of career planning. We create job opportunities for them. We assure 3-5 job interviews in the kind of companies that they would like to work in. End of the day, students have to give the interviews and get the jobs. MYRA will only create internships and job opportunities and prepares them to grab them.
