About this group

Dear Aspirants, we are very pleased to start this year's thread.  PGPX is a dual degree program that is a full partnership between IIMU and the prestigious Krannert School of Management at Purdue University in the United States, one of the world leaders in the Supply Chain Management domain. It is a 15 month's full-time residential program and admission is through the GMAT.

Unlike other one year programs which include a short international component, PGPX offers a full semester of five months at Purdue University where students have access to world-class faculty and facilities and the chance to learn and work with students from all parts of the world. The 15 month PGPX offers a similar range of electives, demands equal academic rigor and uses the same grading criteria as a two year MBA.

It is designed specifically for students with diverse and extensive work experience - a minimum of 2.5 years. Their experience is integrated into all aspects of the program including course work, projects, and company interactions.

Students graduate with an MS-GSCM degree from Purdue and a Post Graduate Diploma for Executives with a specialization in GSCM from IIM Udaipur.

Hi!for a good B-school it is advisable to keep the score to a minimum of 650. Though thats not the only criteria for getting shortlisted,as majority of the colleges consider an overall profile for giving admissions.

Good Academic profile. Targetr a GMAT score of 720+ and you are well set for the top tier colleges. Consider applying in colleges like Great Lakes, Crescent School of Business, Center for Leadership @cfl_ncuMBA , SOIL etc
