Every student has confusions in their mind on PGDM course, and It's comparison with MBA. PGDM stands for Post Graduate Diploma in Management; the confusion started when everyone sees the Diploma. Many students are of the view that it is a diploma course and not a degree. The main reason why postgraduate courses are named as PGDM is that when an Institute is an autonomous body (meaning it is not affiliated with any University) and conducts management courses, then such Institutes cannot offer MBA degree. Even IIMs, XLRI's doesn't offer MBA degrees they only give PGP Diploma or PGDM since they are autonomous and independent bodies.
