PGPM Great lakes Gurgaon vs PGDM-HR in Tapmi vs PGDM in GIM can someone please suggest which one to chose and why?

Vaishali Singh 2nd Mar, 2020


Your first choice should be GIM then PGPM Great lakes and then TAPMI this choice is according to placement scenario and brand name of colleges. Rest for selecting colleges you should also keep in kind how much you want to invest i.e. the fees of the college. This will help you in deciding the college.

All the best.

Manidipa Kundu Student Expert 17th Feb, 2020


its true that iims and some of other top ranked institute shortlisted candidates as per their academic record and  cat or any other management aptitude  test score. see right now which of institute name you have mentioned is also comes under tier 1 college. now you need to focus on your presentation skills, communication approach  to get shortlisted in final rounds. so keep calm and focus on your goal, I think you will surely crack it.
