IIM A ePGD-ABA Review
Take a few days and ponder the question before you jump to any conclusion. This program already has a lot of criterion involved in eligibility stage so tons of application will be automatically filtered. There is no placement assistance after the course completion, this is definitely tough to digest as investment is about a million rupees.
Definitely there is no doubt about the quality of course and exponential learning to be drawn out of it. The candidates also get IIM Ahmedabad Alumni status so definitely 2 good reasons to opt for this course and third must be money available to invest in this course.
