Dear student, congratulations on your BSc graduation. Good to see you have identified human resources to be your ideal career destination. It is essential to be clear on ones career destiny and I am so glad that you are clear with your career thoughts. So go ahead with confidence to do your MBA. You are sure to find your winning place in your future career.


Coming to your first question, can I do PGDM or MBA in human resources?
To be frank, PGDM and MBA is almost the same. Both are professional degrees in business and management subject and there is no difference between them. It depends on the college preference to name a degree as MBA or PGDM. In India, the top B schools offer PGDM and not often as MBA. However private b schools and some colleges name their degree as MBA. However the name is, its all the same.

Top B schools for your admission:
These are the top business schools that offer reputed management degrees.
  • IIM Ahmedabad
  • IIM Bangalore
  • ISB Hyderabad
  • IIM Calcutta
  • IIT Bombay Shailesh Mehta school of management
  • IIM Lucknow
  • IIT Kharagpur Vinod Gupta school of management
  • Faculty of management studies FMS, University of Delhi
  • IIT Delhi
  • IIT Madras
  • IIM Indore
  • IIM Khozhikode
  • Tata institute of social sciences TISS Mumbai
  • Banaras Hindu Society
  • SP Jain institute of management
  • XLRI
  • Symbiosis
  • IMT Ghaziabad
  • LIBA Chennai

These are the only list of b schools that are known well for their ranking and reputation in India and Asia. In fact, IIM Ahmedabad and ISB Hyderabad are the only two business schools that are placed in Asia and world ranking for management degrees from India. However IIM Calcutta ranks No.1 in India for human resource subject.So try your best to get into IIM Calcutta.

Admission tests required:

IIM's - CAT
IIT's - CAT/ GATE
XLRI - XAT
ISB Hyderabad - GRE/ GMAT

All the other schools might accept CAT, however they might administer their own test and please check their respective websites before making an application.

Coming over to your last question, can I do job before the MBA?
I would say absolutely yes. Please gain some work experience before you start with your MBA degree. Companies prefer to recruit students with MBA + work exp more than students who are freshers with the MBA degree. If you have at least 2-3 years of work experience, it will be good for you even when you are studying the course, as you can easily understand the theoretical concepts and relate to the subject better.
