Take for instance the case of a working executive who wants to up his game in the corporate with the help of a management course; however, at the same time, he has loans and EMIs to pay and a family to support. He cannot even think about quitting his job and enrolling for an MBA or PGDM program. That’s exactly where part-time MBAs / PGDMs come into the scene.
