Hey Thoughtosphere, You definitely stand a good chance and opportunities after the program. The program becomes a level setter and unique opportunities. You may contact alumni and engage with more people on pagalguy for the opportunities.

Dear joshnsit,

Thanks a lot. Where can I get in touch with the Alumni ? The IIM Cal website doesn't share the contact details.

Is there a maximum cap for experience for PGPEX admission ?

For Eg EPGP from IIM B says the course is for people with experience between 5 to 15 years. Is there something like that for IIM Cs PGPEX as well ?

I applied to both colleges and was selected to both. As per my information, only IIMB only has this higher cap of 15 years. Though, policies may change. You can call IIMC Admissions anytime to confirm that.

IIM A/B/C or ISB doesn't offer specialization for sure on their diploma/degree as such.

Your search is now narrowed to SP Jain and XLRI.
I think SP Jain only will offer MIS specifically as they do have such degree for their 2 year program, but you need to check.

Hello, If you're rejected this year, can you still apply the next year? Do you need to submit an additional essay?
