Frequently Asked Question

The PgD duration is only 1 year (a total of 6 modules or 120 credits). The students needs to complete the MBA program within 2 years from first date of registration (additional 2 modules / PgD + MBA = 8 modules).
PgD is the abbreviation for Postgraduate Diploma. Postgraduate Diploma is a degree-bearing professional certification that has been around in some countries such as: UK, USA, Australia, Malaysia, Singapore, etc. Academically, we can say PgD is situated in a level above a bachelors degree but lower than a masters degree. Though, the modules you learn in a PgD program is similar to a Master Degree Program but minus submission of a thesis. In some countries, like UK, it is treated to be on par with Masters degree or level 7 (out of 8).
Getting a professional certification is very beneficial for an individual in order to separate themselves from the rest that only have a Bachelors degree certificate. Say there is a upper position that opened in a company and the individual that has the extra certification will definitely be considered as priority by the companies’ HR decision makers. PgD in Business and Management is also beneficial to people from non-management backgrounds, such as employees with IT or Engineering backgrounds who are being promoted to managerial level; therefore they require a different set of skills. Unlike similar professional certification programs which only offer certificates showing their competencies upon completion of the programs, PgD is degree bearing program (typically by adding "PgD" or "Pg Dip." after one's full name).
