Till a few decades ago, management colleges in India were synonymous with IIMs, but now the situation has totally changed. Besides IIMs, several top-notch colleges have appeared on the circuit, making it even tougher to select the right one. At present, there are about more than 3000 management institutes in India. In the present scenario, the way by which a mushroom growth of MBA/PGDM schools has occurred, it has become very important to understand your needs and select the right business school. For all the MBA aspirants, preparing for CAT 2015, Dr. Anupam Narula, Marketing Faculty of FORE School of Management, highlights a few things:
Step 1: In-depth analysis of your goal
Step 2: Accreditation
Step 3: Profile of Faculty
Step 4: Pedagogy and Curriculum
Step 5: Infrastructure
Step 6: Enticements
Step 7: Scholarships
Step 8: Placements and Alumni
Step 9: International Exposure
Step 10: Campus Life
Education is not just classroom learning but also taking responsibility, getting involved and innovating the methods of learning. These extracurricular activities help evolve one’s character to the full bloom. However, a good part of management education involves team work including a large number of team projects. It means that if other students at the institute are of high quality and caliber, then the learning process would be richer.
Now the question arises….Will the right Management Institute choose you?
Dr. Anupam Narula further adds that getting admission to B-School is not one way but a two way process. Along with you choosing the best management institute, the institute should also choose you, as each and every institute wants to have the best talents. After slogging for months for Management Aptitude Test, don’t be disheartened if you are not able to make it to the top 10 B-schools. It would be a good choice to join a good Management Institute, which is AICTE and AIU approved and have good ROI and proves to be good on the above ten parameters. Then give it your best shot during the placement interviews because your exceptional talents and skills never go unnoticed.
After all, experience is the best educator.
