This review is for IIMC
Class of 2017
When I joined PGPEX, I already had over 5 years of experience in the mining sector, and was looking forward to a programme that could offer me a holistic view of the management pedigree. With its healthy blend of electives and compulsory subjects across different domains, PGPEX didn't let me down. Moreover, in a classroom of candidates with background in multiple spheres of business, there is no limitation whatsoever on peer-to-peer learning opportunities.
For applicants who wish to see a leap in their career or seek to switch their work domains, a one year-MBA stands as an invaluable opportunity. The value addition of IIM Calcutta tag would only maximize the potential of your past experience. Having said that, I would advise against focusing on this programme through the lens of job opportunities only. The key essence is the learning platform that it offers and an opportunity to gain 360 degree view of businesses. In other words I would say, life always gives you a second chance and it is called PGPEX !
Th institute offers a very student driven placement process. The placement committee, as elected by the students, is facilitated by the institute to attract the best employers in the domestic as well as international market.
In the past, candidates have been offered mid managerial to senior managerial profiles. Also there have been instances, when potential candidates have successfully switched their domains. The bandwidth of the recruiting firms is very large wherein we have seen participation from various sectors including consulting, manufacturing, banking, to name a few. The details of placement and past recruiters could be found on the website.
