XLRI confers PGC on 123 students

Premier B-school XLRI, which had launched satellite-based management education for practising managers in 2002, conferred postgraduate certificates (PGC) in business management and human resource management on 123 such students here on Saturday.

According to Father N Casamir Raj, director, XLRI, though the classroom method of learning would continue, satellite-based education, which offers real-time virtual classroom experience, is helpful to those who cannot afford to leave their jobs to join a full-time course.

Around 675 students joined XLRI's postgraduate certificate programmes in 2006 and the figure is expected to double this year.

The popularity of the courses has made XLRI include West Asian centres like Dubai, Muscat and Bahrain in its satellite programme.

It's good to know that Postgraduate Certificate (PGC) in Business Management has been received well.

I would like to know if this programme is equivalent to a Masters Degree as per UGC guidelines?
