MBA aspirants spend months weighing the offerings of the business courses available at various universities and B-schools. Although everyone wants to secure an admission in the leading B-schools of India, students often overlook the changing paradigm of management education as they run behind brand names.
Considering the increasing entrepreneurship quotient in the country along with the annually decreasing rate of employability of MBA graduates due to pure textbook education, here’s an insight to the PGDM and PGPXP course offered by Woxsen School of Business, an emerging B-school in Hyderabad:
