MBA is a postgraduate degree offered by a University while PGDM is a postgraduate diploma offered by an Autonomous body like AICTE. PGDM is superior in terms of curriculum, it is practical based while MBA stresses on theory.

For further studies beyond postgraduation it is good to have a recognized degree like MBA. If you have given the college name may be we could explain whether it is superior than MBA or not, it depends on the college also even IIMs don't offer MBA degree same is true with XLRI's as well. They are autonomous and give diplomas which are superior than MBA atleast in India.
