Hope all doing well.

i am a working professional from software industry having more then 4 yr working experience. I am plaaning to do an MBA from a reputed intitude and heard about the executive PG diploma program from IIFT delhi through Hughes.

Can anyone please let me know how is this course. is this add any value to my career? Is its really a diploma course or just a certification?

Thanks Ritesh.
I am very much interested in International Business, but my concern is ----- Companies are ready to accept me as a International Business consultant only by completing this course, as a have no past experience in this field ??????

I have no knowledge about the future prospects after completion of this course, neither have I come across anyone who has done this.

I am doing this purely for theoretical knowledge,since I am already working in the field of logistics.

Surely, after completion of this course,companies will consider you as an IB potential, though at what level, is not something I can forecast.

I got the below mail from IIFT with reference to the accomodation. Looks like another hole in the pocket. Anyways copying the mail that I received.

Dude this is a waste of your time & money. I suggest looking at part time from reputed schools. The Part time of JBIMS isnt bad at all

So you are trying to say that IIFT is not a good school? What if I want to waste my time and money?

If you think a course from IIFT can be comparable to one from JBIMS, then I see no reason why anyone would even consider your views.
Both are offering different kind of courses.

The History, Geography , Civics that I learnt in school was also a waste of time and money at that point of time, but today it does help in some way or the other, consciously or sub-consciously.
So no education is a waste of time.

FYI, I own an International Logistics business and this course is surely a value addition for me.
