Verdict – Great Lakes Review

The investment for PGPM is definitely on the higher side, the median salary is also missing. Therefore, it becomes difficult to track the effectiveness of the PGPM program. The PGDM program can be considered as a backup option and the following institutes should also be checked in comparison – IMI Delhi, TAPMI Manipal, KJ Somaiya, GIM Goa, XUB, Baby and New IIMs, etc.
