PGDM-WE Admissions Process


How does your program help in my career growth, both in terms of salary and profile?

The PGDM degree is well recognized across industries and sectors and facilitates candidates to grow in their careers. The program is well aligned with latest industry trends. Organizations of all sizes employ PGDM graduates to ensure that their business is in the hands of experts. It gives you a lot more credibility and recognition to be considered for managerial and leadership positions The organizational skills, analytical thinking, and knowledge of management principles that are needed to manage large and small businesses are taught comprehensively in the PGDM (PT) course. The additional beauty of this program is that you can pursue your career alongside your degree and there is no career gap.

How will the college/Program help us in connecting to the right alumni and how can we use the alumni network in the best way?

One of the USPs of IMT Ghaziabad is its rich legacy and the attached caveats. IMT is home to nearly 300+ CXO & CEO level alumni spread across the world, and a robust Alumni Relationship Committee dedicated to connecting with the alumni and connecting all its students to the alumni. The alumni network is invaluable to a student’s learning experience and IMT alumni are connected to the campus in various regards like delivering lectures, employing candidates, providing mentorship to candidates etc. The PGDM-WE student can vastly benefit from this alumni alliance.            

Note: IMT is closely following MHA and AICTE guidelines for all admission processes during the Covid19 pandemic. Kindly note that the admission process for 2021 maybe online. IMT is following and will follow all Covid19 precautions and social distancing norms during the entire admissions process 2021.
We will notify you as soon as the revised guidelines for Admission Process 2021 are issued by MHA and AICTE.

Is the program and course structure similar to the full time PGDM program?

It is similar as they are both programs are meant for students who wish to pursue a PGDM, but different as this program is aimed more for candidates who have some degree of work experience and hence are at some managerial capacity in their respective organizations. The course will be taught with the understanding that since most candidates are seasoned professionals, they have some basic understanding of managerial skills.

What is the class composition?

The class is a mix of participants from different companies, MNCs, Private and Public Companies and PSUs. There are some sponsored candidates too from reputed PSU’s and private companies in India. Candidates come from varied backgrounds be it engineers, Govt. officials, marketing professionals and entrepreneurs too.

How this will be different from any PGDM distance program ?

The PGDM-WE program is a campus contact program which essentially means you have to physically attend classes as per given schedule (usually weekends). You have a face to face interaction with your faculty and peers which enhances learning opportunities and networking options. Whether it is opening an entrepreneurship venture with your peers or getting connected for career opportunities, it gives you a wider platform which a PGDM distance learning program does not.

Is there any kind of placement assistance provided to the PGDM-WE aspirants from IMT to get the better opportunity?

The PGDM-WE program is designed for working professionals to continue to work while pursuing their PGDM program at IMT Ghaziabad over weekends. This program does not offer any placement assistance.

Will I earn a diploma, certificate or a degree after successful completion of the program?

Successful candidates will be awarded the Post Graduate Diploma in Management from IMT Ghaziabad, which is approved by AICTE and accredited by AACSB.
