EPGP 4 have had strong placements with more than 90% of the class placed on the convocation day. The roles on offer have been very good . The top international and indian salaries have also been quite encouraging.

Technically, I am not a senior yet, but since question raised by you is factual in nature, I think it is safe to respond : EPGP is a full time residential programme, and nearly every company on mother earth, which needs management graduates at experience level, recognize it. Further, minimum exp required for this course is 7+ years.

Hi EPGP seniors,

I would like to know where an IT guy with 2+ years of work Ex stands after completion of this course? And also many companies do not recognize part time degrees. So is EPGP actually worth for a 2 years exp candidate to take up?

Thanks in advance.

You are immature to believe the there is a difference between PGP and EPGP student quality. In reality, the one year EPGP guys are the MBA students at IIM B as an MBA is understood worldwide.

Just because their course started after the PGP does not mean they are piggybacking on their reputation. They are gaining admission through a very rigorous process - not being doled out.

frankly, its the PGP which is pickybagging on the one-year MbA. IIM's global reputation - its FT rank (PGP is ranked in non mba list) and as the only full time MBA programme at the IIMs accredited as an MBA internationally. The PGP is a hoax - its a masters in management masquerading as MBA - nothing regular about it.

a exhasutive article series on the one year mba at IIMs that i came across might be helpful to clear the cobwebs in your head.

Hi to all those who read and who will read this post, I am writing this post after a long time........had this in my mind from sometime though..
Firstly thanks to all those people who wrote about the EPGP programmee of IIMB regarding the recruitment scene and all......
Secondly thanks to the people of IIMB who were moderating and answering these threads....

BTW I am currently a student of Batch 5, thanks to the people who gave inputs about the programme. I really gave it a thought before plunging in.

I spoke to people who are alumni of ISB, IIM A, Insead and ISB. But name the school and everywhere there is a set that does not agree it is great.......Even from an Insead Alum I was told to have realistic expectations in terms of Placements.....
About IIMB in the short journey till now that I have had, I can say that the seniors-EPGP batch 4 have been very supportive.....they have really put in a lot to give to the programme.......
I will quote the advice that i got from an alum of IIM_B(EPGP 3)" yaar, there is no point in waiting for a year,,,,,placement scene is +/- in every B school, IIM B has wonderful faculty and the experience it gives is awesome, were I in your place I would go for it"

I would say that the students who told about the recruitment scene persuaded me to tap my contacts and dive a little deeper before taking the final call.......This helped me to support my decision and clear the fog........
Only advice that I have for people applying or will apply.....just give it a sincere thought why u want to do an MBA and does it matter..........
I have partly found my answer and am going ahead with this programmee.
Leaving a job and moving out to study has its risks......but I am willing to take it....
So to all of u out there Just make a calculated decision......( worst part is nobody can tell u whats calculated).....................
:)
