Hello Students and Parents,
PGDM is a diploma course where as MBA is a degree given by a University. Don't join a college which is just AICTE approved but go for a college which has a NBA or AIU certification. If you have a CAT, XAT score of above 60% and MAT, CMAT score of above 75% or a better Graduation percentage, kindly then don't join IBA. Instead opt for better colleges where you will have better scope and opportunities ahead. Also if you have a job experience of 6+ months from a reputed company then don't make a mistake of coming here. Your growth will be stagnant. College will remove you in case you fail in more than 3 subjects in first year. There is no re-exam or improvement examination.
If you are planning to pursue higher studies in Financial, HR or Business Analytics, then it is a wrong choice here. IBA offers only 5 specialisations (Finance, HR, Operations, Business Analytics, International Business) which has to be combined with Marketing (Compulsory). As a dual diploma certification course you will get average placements of 4 Lakhs. Highest package is 7 lakhs. All the job opportunities here are of Sales and Marketing.
