NMIMS INDORE VS IMT HYDERABAD for MBA?
Both NMIMS INDORE and IMT HYEDRABAD is the branch of NMIMS MUMBAI and IMT GHAZIABAD, However from both of them I'll recommend IMT HYEDRABAD more because it is older than NMIMS INDORE and also has a better ROI than NMIMS INDORE. So, choose IMT HYEDRABAD if you are getting it since it's a better option from NMIMS INDORE.
Rest is your decision.
I hope the above information is beneficial for you.
All the best.
which college is better imt Hyderabad or NDIM new delhi in terms of placement and course structure if i do majors in finance
When choosing a college you must take following factors into consideration:-
- fees Structure
- Return on Investment
- Course offered by the college and your interest
Both IMT Hyderabad and NDIM are good colleges when it comes to going for an MBA/Pgdm program. IMT has a brand attached to it's name so it can offer a slightly better opportunities for the student when compared to NDIM. But in terms of ROI, NDIM is a better option. Both the colleges has decent placements so you must choose the college which best suit your location and fees structure.
I got 84 percentile in cmat 2020 and I also have a work experience of 2 years and Ive applied in colleges such as IMT nagpur, IMT Hyderabad, XIME Bangaluru, BIMTECH and SIES COMS. So, can I expect to get a call for interview from these colleges?
I will tell you about the situation of these colleges in previous year -:
IMT NAGPUR AND HYDERABAD - They had call every student for interview but they they have taken only those students which are having more than 90 percentile in CMAT.
XIME BANGALORE - Cutoff for every exam is 75 percentile.
SIES MUMBAI - They also call every student for their GD-PI process, Selection depends on both scores in exam and GD-PI.
BIMTECH NOIDA - More than 70 percentile is enough for getting a call but they will take admission only for retail and banking through CMAT exam.
I hope the above information is beneficial to you.
All the best.
