I have had the rare experience of working in Indian Navy, PSU, and finally with renowned multi-national corporate sprawling across the global world.
After a varied and diversified experience I feel that there is a dearth of practical education in our education system. An Education system which provides not only theoretical know-how but also gives practical exposure necessary for making real achievers.
With this aim I paved path towards establishing Vision Group of Institutions. We already have two engineering colleges and a CISCE Board residential school running successfully.
Before finalizing on our program structure I decided to personally visit all prestigious Institutions in India. My journey started with Indian Institute of management Ahmedabad the oldest IIM and took me to all IIMs and ended with Indian School of business Hyderabad, the only Indian School in the Forbes List. I have very minutely observed the difference between the infrastructure& collection of books in library, met with the Directors, faculties, and the students.
During these visits and discussion the difference between MBA and PGDM became clear to me. Even after getting LOI from AICTE for MBA we decided to go for PGDM. I feel MBA is a stereotype management education where as in PGDM the college is having freedom to adjust as per National and International requirements.
