Hello Aspirant

IIFT is one of the premiere institutes in the country. The institute is well known for comprehensive programs, placements and hefty packages. Short answer, full time MBA from IIFT would be a good idea.

Indeed, it is conceivable, yet it will be very troublesome. You get focused on a variety on the off chance that you're a non-engineer.

Ensure you have an exceptionally high percentile.

I would like to request you to kindly mention your category because that can also be the reason for your shortlisting as you would have cleared the category wise cut off .

But if you are from general category i would advise you kindly prepare for your pi very sincerely because that's the eliminating round where maximum candidates suffer rejection. Even high percentile scorers suffer rejection.
