The PGDB programme is being offered by Manipal University at the ICICI Manipal Academy Bengaluru campus. The students selected and shortlisted by ICICI Bank are admitted to a one year programme.
On completion of the PGDB after one year, POs will also have an opportunity to pursue appropriate higher degree programs offered by specific universities within the Manipal Global Education Framework.
The credits acquired during this course qualify for recognition and lateral entry into appropriate higher degree programs offered by specific universities within the Manipal Global Education Framework (MGEF).
The PG diploma will be awarded by Manipal University after the student successfully fulfils all the necessary requirements. Manipal University is a deemed university under section 3 of the University Grants Commission (UGC) Act. UGC does not concern itself directly with the award of diplomas and this is a prerogative of a recognised University.
