    Well both the options are good but then it is also important to see from which institute you plan to pursue this course and based on which you should go about pursue this course. However for any more queries, I would suggest you to kindly post this as query in the QnA section of this site.

    PGDM is awarded by autonomous institutes offering management program .A two year PGDM is equivalent to MBA.All autonomous/private universities in India cannot award MBA & they should award a PGDM (IIMs also confer PGDM for those joining PGP).MBA is awarded by Indian Universities recognized by UGC & who are members of Association of Indian Universities. Autonomous educational bodies cannot use the term MBA & they normally have to mention 2 years PGDM (being equivalent to MBA). A one year PGDM programme is not equivalent to MBA. Educational standards are assumed to be of higher order with those offering MBA / PGDM.

    Sameera33519 PGDM Is The Diploma Course, While MBA Is The Graduate Course.
    PGDM Stands For Post Graduate Diploma In Management.
    So, I Will Suggest You Just Do MBA Course, Because MBA Is Master Degree Course And After Completing This Course You Can Do P.hd In Future.
    And After Completing MBA, You Will Get Good Salary Pacakage In Top MNC Companies, So MBA Is Best For You.
    So, Please Work Hard, If You really Interested To Do MBA Course In Future.
    After Clear The CAT/MAT Examination, You Will Get Admission In TOP MBA Colleges.
    So, MBA Degree Is More Popular Than PGDM, Because The diploma Courses Are No value In These Days, So Its Better If you
