The Various Benefits of an Executive PGDM Program

Executive PGDM Program

Choosing the perfect profession is hard. There is a fair amount of trial and error involved in settling down in a role that satisfies you both professionally and personally. But, like every seasoned professional in any field knows, as you keep racking up experience and getting those hard-earned promotions after years of grinding, the plateau eventually hits.

Try as you may some of the top management roles in your organization might look just out of reach even after you have toiled for years. That is where an Executive PGDM program (EPGDM) can help you – to finally ascend the stairway to heaven that has been eluding you professionally for so long.

An executive PGDM (Post Graduate Diploma in Management) is designed specifically to cater to jet-set executives like you who have a lot of responsibilities to juggle between. Time is scarce, your most valuable resource. We at UBS do understand that. And that is why our EPGDM is exactly suited to your specific needs. Let us now examine how enrolling in a PGDM can boost your career and why it is so effective.

The success of LinkedIn as a tool and as a social networking site has really driven home the point that networking is one of the keys to finding good positions in top companies. While It has made networking easier than it used to be, of course, nothing beats the good old-fashioned camaraderie that arises out of like-minded people thrown together in a group.

An executive PGDM for working professionals ensures that you meet people who have similar goals and are probably in a similar stage of life. Just like you, your peers are also attending the same course because they are looking to get into the upper echelons of their company too. These future leaders can be a great springboard for you to jumpstart your career growth again. Or maybe even collaborate on future endeavors. We know you don’t settle for less than the best and we ensure that your networks comprise the cream of the crop too.


The main difference between an MBA and PGDM is the time taken to complete the courses. Of course, both are postgraduate courses in Management. PGDM is shorter than traditional MBAs while still being valued equally. Often spanning just two years, Executive PGDMs outdo even those by being extremely flexible in terms of both time and place. 

UBS also offers the option to choose between weekdays and weekends, Saturday batches or Sunday batches so anyone, no matter how busy they are, can eke out time to study at their convenience. They also have centers located at Sion, Malad, and Thane so save further time on traveling for when you absolutely need to take physical classes on your preferred day. There are always modules you can just complete remotely, as online PGDM is but a given due to the busy lifestyles of the students they attract.

Another way Executive PGDM courses offer flexibility is in the terms of specialization. These courses often give you the option to pick more than one specialization, so you are not stuck with the same fixed options, all of which may not suit you. Instead, you can pick and choose which areas you want to specialize in.

Overall Growth

With courses designed by industry experts and leaders, EPGDM courses offer you the best experience in efficient learning. The constant challenge of having to beat or keep up similarly ultra-focused peers only goes into making you resilient and a problem solver. Just the qualities upper management look for. Add to the add the leadership skills that are taught both in class and through practical exercises designed by specialists, and you are bound for a personality upgrade like no other.

It also adds real-world experience through various projects and workshops designed by mammoths in the industry, who also ensure that the syllabi are always up to date with the latest going on in the field. You can rest assured that completing a PGDM from UBS will not only mean you leave with a heftier resume but also a heftier skill set that can take you to the pinnacle of your professional life.

Whether you choose to continue in your own company or take up a new position in another company, it can definitely help you increase your salary. However, if you are one of those perfectionists looking for a course after PGDM there are still some options for you.
