No AICTE Approval?


I am a BE Graduate.Recently, I have completed my Post Graduate Program in Management (PGPM) from Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai. (

My college does not hold AICTE approval.

I am planning to write UPSC 2009 exam with Management as one of the paper for Mains.

My grill is what I should mention as my highest degree contained by the application form.

ie. Should I mention it as PGPM

(or) Should I mention it as BE only as the college in which I did my PGPM is not AICTE approved.

Will my PGPM own no value if my college is not AICTE approved?

Eagerly waiting for a response and thank you very much within advance for your valuable time.

Answers:    You should mention your superlative degree as B.E.

Because PGPM stands for Post Graduate Program in Management. What you received on successful completion of the course is a short time ago an award stating that you have successfully completed the Post Graduate Program in Management at Great Lakes Institute of Management, Chennai. It is not a point certificate in any channel, and hence does not count as a degree, even if it had AICTE approval as resourcefully as AIU(which is just a private association of Indian universities and does not delight in Government-backing) recognition that it was equivalent to MBA. PGPM is not a amount.

Interestingly, even an IIM alumnus in your situation would be forced to do exactly the same item, as the Post Graduate Program in Management is not a degree, and a establishment body like the UPSC would not, in adjectives probability, recognise it as such.
Dont care about PGPM..Since you are a BE graduate,it is more than ample to appear for UPSC exam..
Write only BE.
