Pranav Mishra 26th Feb, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

One thing you should learn before doing MBA course is to be positive at all situation doesn't matter how difficult it is, So I suggest you to be positive for your result. What my opinion is about the selection of candidate through GD-PI process is that selection weightage is more for PI than GD, Telling about my experience I have been rejected to all those college where my interview was horrible like NIA, But I have got selected in Welingkar despite of giving average GD because of a good personal interview.

So don't take tension be positive for your result.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.


can any of you tell me the preference of college of ibsat?? eg ibs Mumbai, Hyderabad and etc

Masira 14th Jan, 2020


Thee best campus is the Hyderabad campus it is being one of good B- School with good ranking. According to rank it would be:
1. Hyderabad
2. Mumbai
3. Pune
4. Gurgaon

Among all the campuses of IBS which is located in Mumbai , Pune , Gurgaon & Hyderabad premises during the the time counselling I think you should go with the option Hyderabad campus because for doing the course in the Hyderabad section will make you stand elite as well I heard from most of the aspirants that facility in the Hyderabad section is better including all the major one.
