While it is a common notion that only current affairs issues are asked in the Essay Writing and GD topics for MBA admission rounds, it is a myth considering the fact that there has been a predominance of abstract GD topics for MBA admission as well. However, whether to channelise the discussion or essay on the abstract topic through current affairs or any other subject will depend solely on the candidates.

As you can observe the GD topics for MBA can range from anything and everything and can vary from different sectors of news and information. However, since major weight remains on current affairs, it is suggested that you do a run-up for the important and major events across national and international domains over the year. “Read up on the sensational stories of 2017-18, build arguments for/against the issues and decide their standpoint,” suggests Kudva.

As per expert insights,the following can be the WAT and GD topics for MBA admission rounds:

  • GST - Pros and Cons

  • From Aadhaar Cards to Facebook - how much are out data safe?

  • IIM Bill

  • Ban on Triple Talaq

  • How sustainable is the Jio model in Indian Telecom industry?

  • How can banks prevent scams by Neerav Modi and the likes?

  • How significant is Nepotism in Bollywood?

  • Is the Start-Up wave in India dying?

  • Should Freedom of Expression have limits?

  • Union Budget 2018

  • Corruption in politics

  • Safety of women

  • India’s space mission

  • Iran-US Nuclear agreement

  • Drug abuse in sports

  • Is India a soft nation?

  • America’s hegemony in world affairs.

Along with preparing for the WAT and GD topics for MBA, candidates should also learn to build an opinion, take a stand and communicate clearly. Kudva suggests, “The WAT/GD topics for MBA normally require you to take a stand, so they require you to be analytical and argumentative rather than descriptive.”

On preparing for WAT and GD topics for MBA, Gautam Puri, Vice President, Career Launcher advises, “Students must try to build their opinion rather than just gathering facts.” For this, he suggests candidates to start reading a newspaper on a daily basis, browse through magazines and build on content spanning across legal, political, social, economic and sports domains.
