You must have a very good idea about a PGDM in Retail now. Now let us tell you why you should choose Sunstone for your PGDM.
PGDM in Retail has a vast scope and is accepted everywhere. However, recently there appears to be a skill gap in terms of what most colleges in India teach their PGDM students as opposed to what the industry requires. This leads to a situation where the knowledge of the students falls short in the real world. This is because after taking the fee, an institution is bound to lose the motivation to tailor the recruitment specific to each student and their individual needs.
Sunstone solves this problem. Our pay after placement model ensures accountability. We don’t charge any tuition fees upfront and you only pay a small portion of your salary after you get placed.
This implies that students don’t need to stress about funding their PGDM or take hefty loans and can instead concentrate on what matters- gaining knowledge and skills from our trusted faculty.
Our curriculum isn’t rigid or set by the traditional norms. It’s developed and updated by the industry itself. Our experts continuously monitor what the real world industry demands from new PGDM graduates and they adjust the curriculum according to that.
Instead of you investing in us, we invest in you. We have only one goal, getting you placed in a job that suits your skills and one that you like
