An acquaintance of mine completed his PGDM from IMT Ghaziabad so hopefully, he would be able to answer your question accurately.

  • In the case of PGDM full-time, you will be capable of choosing your own area of specialization, be it marketing, finance, or HR at the end of the first year.
  • In the case of PGDM finance, your area has already has been chosen for you and will not be able to change it.
  • Irrespective of the specializations, the first year is common for each and every student. PGDM students can choose their desired area of specialization at the end of the first year.

The college management may ask full-time students to choose their specialization area before their placements for summer internships which are usually 3-4 months of joining even though technically you can choose your major by the end of the first year. My acquaintance had to choose his major before his summer internship placements.

If you choose PGDM Full time, then you will be able to choose your specialization from:

  • Marketing
  • Finance
  • Information Management and Analytics
  • Operations Management
  • Human Resources
  • Innovation and Entrepreneurship

If you go for PGDM finance, you will have to learn the electives and core subjects of finance in your second year.
