The two-year Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), offering the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), is the flagship programme across all IIMs.[1][2][3] These post graduate diploma programmes are considered equivalent to regular MBA programmes delivered globally by universities like Harvard, Insead, IMD, and Leeds University Business School and ranked alongside them in international rankings like FT global MBA ranking.
