PGDBF: Another Big Opportunity in 2018

Dear Readers,


When we talk about the Banking sector, there is an increase in the number of opportunities every year and vacancies are just on a peak due to number of retirements due in public sector banks. We all know from the past that public sector banks are recruiting through IBPS and there is a common written test and Interview for all public sector banks. But when we talk about Bank of Baroda, Syndicate Bank, Punjab National Bank, and IDBI bank, they have changed the trend of their recruitment from last 3-4 years. Bank of Baroda being the number one Public sector bank now beating SBI on second place is recruiting only through Manipal PGDBF program and has stopped creating vacancies in IBPS from last 2 years. And now, there are lot more public sector banks such as Canara Bank, Andhra Bank changing their way of recruitment of Probationary officers from IBPS to Manipal PGDBF program.

“Don’t Miss a single Opportunity and yes specially this one”.
Will tell why.. Just go through this Article properly….

What is PGDBF Course/program?


PGDBF stands for Post Graduate Diploma in Banking and Finance. It is a 1 year degree where you have 9 months of campus class room program and 3 months of internship/On Job training. 
It is very much similar to MBA degree or Post Graduate Diploma degree courses offered by top management prominent colleges in our Country. The best thing about this course/degree is that you are getting the knowledge, various certifications and finally a secure job in your hand. We will talk about all the benefits in this article.

About the PGDBF Program

PGDBF program offered by our prestigious and one of the top public sector banks such as Bank of Baroda, Syndicate Bank, Canara Bank and many others have developed the program in the following way –
  1. There will be a complete 9 months on campus class room course consisting of 3 semesters of 3 months each.
  2. In each semester, there will be 5-6 subjects of banking and finance and plus some management subjects.
  3. There will be final exam at the end of each semester where you have to pass with some minimum criteria or percentage.
  4. In each semester, there will be practical on the software on which banks operations works. You will get the knowledge and idea before you actually start your job in the bank.
  5. There will be certified exams which are conducted by the institute in tie up with the IIBF, Mutual Funds and Insurance Authorities such as DB&F (JAIIB), NISM , NSDL (Mutual Funds exams) and some other insurance exams where you will get the certificates when you pass these exams.

  7. After completion of the 9 months class room program and 3 months on job training, you will get the PGDBF degree in your end and all these will add to your resume to get the internal promotions and in other activities.

About the Fees structure of the course

See, when we compare this fees of this around 4 lakhs to private management colleges where you give a lot and plus the entrance test to get the admission in them, it is really reasonable that too you have the option of paying the same through instalments which will start once you complete the course and start your job. It will be cut from your salary in the form of EMI at very much lower rates (that too simple interest for staffs).  We think this fee is not much as compared to the secured job, your life achievement and growth.
