The Master of Business Administration (MBA) is a Master's Degree in

Business Administration, which attracts people from a wide range of academic
disciplines. The MBA designation originated in the United States, emerging from the
late 19th century as the country industrialized and companies sought out scientific
approaches to management. The core courses in the MBA program are designed to
introduce students to the various areas of business such as accounting, marketing,
human resources, operations management, etc. Students in the MBA program have
the option to select an area of specialization and focus approximately one-third of
their studies in that area. Accreditation bodies exist specifically for MBA programs
to ensure consistency and quality of graduate business education, and business
schools in many countries offer MBA programs t ailored to full-time, part-time,
executive, and distance learning students, with specialized concentrations .

There are 1600 business schools in India offering two year MBA programs
targeting predominantly fresh graduates without any work experience. Among those
schools, the Indian Institutes of Management (IIM) are the oldest institutions for
management education in India. Admission to any of the IIM schools or other
business schools requires passing the Common Admission Test (CAT), XAT, GMAT,
JMET or MAT each of which qualifies candidates for entrance into any management
institutions in India, apart from these entrance tests there are few business schools
which conducts aptitude test individually which qualifies candidates fo r that
particular business school. The IIM and other autonomous business schools offer a
post-graduate diploma in management (PGDM) which is recognized in India as
similar to an MBA degree.. The curriculum of the PGDM and MBA degrees are
equivalent, although the MBA degree is examination oriented and concentrates on
theoretical aspects of management whereas the PGDM is industry -oriented and
mainly focuses on building soft skills. However, a PGDM holder cannot pursue
Ph.D. since the PGDM is not recognized. Non-government accredited one-year fast-
track programs have proliferated in India, especially for candidates with work
experience. Such programs are commonly known as Post Graduate Program (PGP)
in Business Management.
