All the colleges are counted among established and well-known colleges. So, choosing the best among all is not that easy. Great Lakes PGPM is a one-year program that accepts experienced people while IFMR and TAPMI are two years programs with a majority of students who are freshers or those with relatively low experience.

Assuming that you are an experienced candidate with 3-4 years of experience, the 1-year PGPM at Great Lakes Gurgaon makes sense for the following reasons:

Duration: The main advantage of a one-year program is that you get back into the industry in a short time of a year.

ROI:

  • Among the three, the Great Lakes, Gurgaon PGPM has the highest salary.
  • The one-year MBA has the advantage that you will start earning early. And you will get an annual increment and experience giving you a boost.

Peer: The class profiles would be different with the PGPM having experienced people while the two-year programs have mixed groups skewed towards freshers.

Let’s take a quick look at placements of all institutes:

With the data above, it is suggested to choose a two-year MBA if it is from a top B-school with significantly better placements or opt for a slower-paced program to cope up. 

The faculty are really awesome at Great Lakes Gurgaon. While location-wise, TAPMI is really beautiful as compared to IFMR and GLIM. But, TAPMI being far from metro city hampers placements a bit. Whereas, GLIM and IFMR have IT sector plus points thus making internships and placement easy.
