The Masters in Business Administration (MBA) is a post graduate degree awarded only by the Universities or institutes affiliated to Universities which run post graduate management programs. All other standalone institutes are entitled to award only a PGDM. It’s interesting to note that while the two degrees are equivalent for nearly all practical purposes, there are some differences nevertheless. At Sri Balaji Society, this gap is bridged as the PGDM at any of our institutes is equivalent to MBA for all practical purposes. The PGDM courses at Sri Balaji Society are equivalent to MBA by virtue of the equivalence granted by AIU. In fact, apart from SBS, only NIA and VAMNICON are the two institutes at Pune, the PGDM program of which, have been granted the AIU equivalence. Click here to view the document.
