Since 1999, as one of the original institutions of management education in North India, PCTE has created a distinct position. The apprentices here confront assumptions, imagine beyond evident limits, and affix the importance of brilliance in whatever they do. We appreciate your considering PCTE Group of Institutes.

You would be happy to know that PCTE is ranked as the best B School of the region for 7 consecutive years by AIMA. It is rated 12th in the country on the “Learning Experiences” by Business World. PCTE has been rated only after 7 B schools on the basis of Intellectual Capital by AIMA.

Beyond the academic realm, PCTE boasts a visually stunning campus setting in the lively greens of Punjab. Campus events include fests, balls, DJ Jam shows, presentations, lectures, debates, MUNs, Group Discussions, and a wide range of outdoor and sporting activities.

PCTE also has a commitment for providing opportunities to graduate in diverse fields. Our programs are enriched by the variety of cultural, economic, and educational backgrounds of our students, faculty, and staff.

PCTE Group is perhaps the only one in the state, which now provides handsome salaried jobs with starting salary packages at Rs. 4.8 lakhs and above. PCTE has a long lasting commitment to kick start most undergraduates in their life.

Choosing to undertake higher studies — and then finding the right place to do so — is a highly important decision. I encourage you to learn as much as you can about PCTE Group, its campus and the program that interests you. Visit the campus if possible; meet our students and talk with members of the faculty. If you are unable to visit us in person, be sure to contact a faculty member in your field of study who can discuss the variety of facilities and resources available at PCTE.

I hope you’ll find that PCTE offers the breadth, depth and vision in its programs that you seek, and that you will consider becoming part of this dynamic academic community.
