MBA Application Guide

If you are looking for a course which can add value to your career by developing basic skills of unique thinking, problem solving, observation, perception, behavioral change and dealingwith people, then MBA is the ultimate course for you. A well made curriculum promises an intensive coursework which can help you fetch the right kind of job to suit your skills.

Who can do a MBA?

If you are here, then it is safe to assume that MBA is definitely on your mind. So what follows is a simple question: Am I eligible to do this course? The search for the answer begins at the eligibility criteria. Broadly the eligibility criteria are as follows:

  • Academic Qualifications: Graduation with a valid score of MAT/CAT/XAT/WBJEEMAT or any all India level Management Aptitude Test for colleges in India & GMAT scores for institutes abroad. Some institutes conduct their own internal exam. B-schools also allow valid scores from candidates appearing for the final year exam.
  • Age: The minimum age of applicants must not be below twenty years.
  • Admission Process: An application has to be made to the B-school of your choice duly filled up and submitted with requisite supporting documents. The form can be physically filled up or submitted online at the college websites. The process does not differ much between different institutes. The application fee is usually submitted in form of a DD sent along with the application.
  • GD & PI: Based on the percentile score of each applicant is shortlisted for group discussions and personal interview sessions which finally decide the acceptance.

When is the right time to apply for a MBA?

The next logical question is the timing of the course. Many get confused between when to opt for a MBA – Right after graduation? Or After a minimum 2-3 years work experience? Let us help you to detangle it.

A MBA degree is usually of two kinds:

–       Full- time Residential Degree/ Programme

–       Part-time Degree/ Programme.

Given a choice and if you have the time, then opt for a residential MBA programme. These will give an in-depth knowledge about the topics covered in your MBA curriculum. This knowledge will help enhance your skills in a better way. But if you are working and can’t take a sabbatical or leave your job, then we will suggest you to pursue the part time MBA options. The knowledge you get from the course and with your work experience together will benefit your career.

Where should one apply?

There are innumerable colleges offering MBA degrees with various specializations. Don’t let the numbers scare you. While selecting a B-school always focus on the market value of the curriculum, competence of faculty members and proper affiliations. For example: NSHM Knowledge Campus is one of the largest institutes in Eastern India affiliated to WBUT, which promises to deliver industry ready curriculum, with well equipped infrastructure, industry experienced faculty and has consistently won accolades as eastern India’s most preferred education institute.
