Post Graduate courses refer to those mba courses which are undertaken after graduation. In order to study this, a student must have acquired a bachelor’s degree from a university. The organization and structure of these courses differ from country to country and sometimes the institutions within a country may have differences. In most of the countries, a postgraduate degree refers to a Masters degree and a Doctorate. It contains both taught and research elements. Post Graduate Courses normally involve one specializing in a particular area of interest.

The most common courses are Masters of Arts (M.A)., Masters of Science (MSc), Masters of Business Administration MBA Masters of Laws(LLM), Masters of Education(MEd), Masters of Music (MMus) and Masters of Philosophy (MPhil). MPhil envisages two years of research ending in a dissertation of 50,000 to 70,000 words.

Among doctorates, there is PhD or Doctor of Philosophy, LLD or Doctor of Law, DSc or Doctor of Science, D Litt or Doctor of Literature and MD or Doctor of Medicine.
