Hi Vinay,

Surprisingly there hasn't been much interest about PGPEX here. The last time someone created a thread, there were 4 responses. Here's the earlier thread.

For this specific program, you might have better luck on an Indian forum like Pagalguy.

Here's a story about a candidate who got into IIMB and IIMC. He was a regular blogger (representing IIMC) on Financial Times. He explains --> why he chose IIMC.

Good luck with your application.

Dear MBACrystalBall,

Thanks for your suggestions. Indeed, there is a dedicated active thread on PagalGuy about IIM Calcutta PGPEX program.

I believe that 1 year full time MBA programs, such as IIM Cal PGPEX, are catching up fast in India. Probably 1 year MBA programs are going to rule the MBA education. Such programs are already popular in Europe, but not so in USA.

As you have great experience in MBA counselling, i request you to provide your opinion about 1 year MBA programs in India?

Thank you

Apologies for the delay, Vinay. Peak season keeping us busy with the offline work.

1 year programs in India

Pros - Good quality education and Fantastic RoI overall and an excellent choice if your career plans are India-centric.

Cons - International / multi-cultural representation in the class and trans-regional mobility / opportunities can be pretty limited (though a few might get overseas placements).

Here's the story of a candidate who faced the dilemma of Indian MBA vs International MBA. It might give you additional perspectives.

Hi Saikat,

I had joined PGPEX program and graduated from there in Mar 2014. Currently working in Ghana with Mahindra Comviva. It was a good experience.

Thanks
Vinay
