Ques. Which one should I choose, PGPM Great Lakes, SIIB Pune or NMIMS Hyderabad?

● Top Answer By Niharika Gandhi on 29 Jul 21

Ans. Based on what I heard from my friends at these institutes, I will say choose GLIM PGDM. The course is great and over the years it gained popularity. SIIB will also be a good option if you plan to major in international business. For placement wise GLIM offers you a wide range of companies from much-diversified backgrounds for a 2 years program, unlike the 1 year where a majority of IT companies visit. You will receive the same placement opportunities as the PGPM program as the school allows PGDM guys to sit for companies for PGPM unless specified by the company on an experience basis. Here are the recent placement highlights for GLIM PGDM. Placement Average 100% Average CTC 10.4 LPA Highest CTC 21.5 LPA Top recruiting sectors FMCG, IT/ITES, Consulting No of PPOs offered 16 Your preference order should be GLIM PGPM> SIIB> NMIMS Hyderabad based on the overall ranking, brand values, and placements.Read more

Ques. Which is the best choice for an experienced IT professional? XIMB, TAPMI or Great Lakes for MBA?

● Top Answer By Mukul Parashar on 13 Jul 21

Ans. If you want to join the IT sector after completing the course and have more than 4 years of experience, the Great Lakes 1 year program is a good option to consider, but it is something that will help you advance your career in the same direction. When it comes to acceptance, a regular PGDM of two years more preferred. Given the chance, even if you want to do IT roles but on a higher level of management, Great Lakes can be a good option, but it can not compete with XIMB's brand value. So, your preference order should be as the following. XIMB BM Great Lakes TAPMI I am not considering XIMB HR; if that is your priority, there is no need to consider other options because the other two B-schools do not have comparable backgrounds to match XIMB HR. I’m referring to regular PGDM programs in which you will choose your majors later on after exploring common subjects offered in the first few terms. The final decision is yours to make.Read more

Ques. My daughter has an option between IMT Ghaziabad (DCP) and Great Lakes Chennai for the 2020-2022 PGDM program. Which one would you recommend and why?

● Top Answer By Nikhil Ranjan on 08 Jul 21

Ans. Out of IMT Ghaziabad and Great Lakes Chennai, Great Lakes Chennai is far better than IMT Ghaziabad as it is continuously growing and developing. The packages offered at Great Lakes are increasing and this attracts students the most. The faculty at Great Lakes Chennai is the best and supportive. When it comes to IMT Ghaziabad, their ROI is not good in the current phase. The students of DCP do not cooperate with the other students of the college. Categories IMT Ghaziabad (DCP) Great Lakes Chennai Course Fee 19.40 lakhs 11.81 lakhs Highest CTC 30 LPA 25 LPA Average CTC 12.5 LPA 16 LPA Recruiting Companies Pepsi, Loreal, Abbott, Oracle, etc. Accenture, JP Morgan, Crisil, McKinsey, etc. Great Lakes is a better college than IMT Ghaziabad DCP and you must go for it.Read more

Admission :

I have taken XAT exam, I have applied to the PGDM admissions invited by the college. Then on the merit of my score I was called for further rounds like Essay writing and Personal Interview.The process is carried out quite Professionally across some major cities in India.

Remarks :

It just seems like an extension of your 12th where focus or Orientation is mostly on Grades and not on Learning. Despite of all this you would not be assured a high paying job. Gives you a feeling of being let down by the Management. The Department which deals with placements is absolutely inefficient. The peer group is immatured

Admission :

Written test - GMAT and interview. Interviews will be held in Dec for first round and Jan for second round of admissions. I prefer this course because it is 1 year course instead of 2 yearse of course structure. It will be beneficial to working professional with experience of 3-5 years.

Remarks :

It's very pleasent location far away from city. A 1 year duration of this course will make a life time change in one's personality.
