Lucknow Advantage

Having our campus in Lucknow offers our students many tangible advantages versus PGDM students in other cities:

  • Lucknow is the North India hub for many important sectors like Banking & Finance, Retail, Manufacturing, and Trade.
  • Regional Heads and Recruitment Managers of many large Indian organisations as well as MNCs are based out of Lucknow. This provides easier access to leadership at these companies.
  • Compared to other large cities, Lucknow actually has a shortage of quality PGDM holders, which reduces competition and provides local graduates with easier access to quality roles.
