FEE STRUCTURE 2029-21
The program has a clear focus on emerging economies and their growth. An AICTE approved program, PGDM offers a unique and nonpareil coverage of the economies of China, Far-East, Latin America and Africa in comparison to the India growth story. The PGDM has been designed by the Great Lakes Academic Advisory Council, which comprises the best in the world of managerial academia. This, in turn, has been streamlined with inputs from the Institute's illustrious Business Advisory Council, to keep it in sync with the needs of an ever-changing marketplace. The course helps the students to develop into business-ready managers, capable of responding to complex business requirements that arise in a changing global business environment.
Applicants are evaluated based on GMAT/CAT/XAT/CMAT scores, past academic performance, essays, work experience and performance in the personal interview. The selection process builds in a criterion that facilitates evaluating each applicant on:
a) Academic Abilities: The program at Great Lakes is highly demanding and intense; candidates with consistent academic background and an ability to sustain pressure make the shortlist
b) Standardized Test Scores: To eliminate inconsistencies between colleges and universities at the Undergraduate level, Great Lakes considers GMAT or CAT or XAT or CMAT scores in the overall assessment
c) Rank Holders: The program gives a clear advantage/brownie points to College / University rank holders.
d) Integrity and Ethical Values: Great Lakes emphasize on integrity and values including originality. Plagiarism will be probed thoroughly during the process.
e) The diversity of Background: At Great Lakes, diversity in background facilitates peer learning which transforms ‘uncut stones’ into ‘diamonds’. We will actively try to bring an academic diversity into the PGDM classroom.
All applicants are required to appear for GMAT/CAT*/XAT + /CMAT before applying to Great Lakes Institute of Management.
