Greetings! While most aspirants on this forum target ISB PGP, it might be handy to know that ISB has recently launched PGPPro (Post Graduate Program in management for Working Professionals).

This is a Weekend Executive MBA equivalent program (part time), and is mainly aimed at working professionals in the 5 year to 12 year experience bracket.

More information is available at this link: http://www.isb.edu/post-graduate-programme-in-management-for-working-professionals

Dear ISBeacon,

I have gone through end-to-end details about this Program, as available on ISB Official Website.
BUT there is no information about placements ! Requesting you to please address the below queries:

1. As the fee structure is almost same (Infact higher for PGPpro :| ), Will this program provide any placements through ISB, after successful completion ???
2. What are the other placement opportunities available for a candidate, aspiring for this program ?

[Profile Background: Joined a leading IT MNC 5 years back, as a BTech Fresher. Average Acads but strong extra-curricular. Experience of leading initiatives through multiple Org-level, State (Hyd-AP-Telangana)/National-level forums. This extra-C helped me to get an internal job movement into core-HR role, 2 years back, and currently handling the recruitment for entire North India region]


Wish if ISB can bring a Info-session for this programs as well...

Thanks in advance.

Hi there. Let me try to answer some of your queries.

1. The fee for both programs is indeed very similar but the point you are missing is that the opportunity cost associated with each program carries a significant difference. PGP students leave their jobs for a year while PGPpro allows you to 'Learn & Earn'. Irrespective of that, a comparison should not be made between the two programs as they cater to different audiences. Please do keep in mind, that ISB would ensure that students/prospective alums are happy when they graduate so expect ISB to leverage its resources to make sure you have career progression. After all you will be their brand ambassadors as FOUNDING students of PGPpro.

Another thing, is that no Executive MBA programs offer placement services. It is a bit counter intuitive because prospects who apply to the program are seeking to transition in to senior management roles within their company. Ask yourself this question - how many companies come to campuses to hire senior management roles? - Not many. IMO that number should be zero.

2. ISB is a platform. You have to make most of the opportunity. If you expect a job to come on a silver platter just because you have an ISB degree then you need to wake up to reality. I'd advise you to look for a placement agency rather than take up a valuable seat in the program.

Cheers!
