Do the IIM interview panel recognize certificates from MOOC like edx ?

Shivam bhardwaj Student Expert 24th Oct, 2019

Hello Ninad,

During the interview, the members of panel wants to know about you, and how much passionately you are doing things in your life. They go through your academic profile as well. If you have some extra and interesting things to show it will definitely attract the panel. And they are bound to ask questions related to that course. If you are able to give answers, you will surely get benefitted. But stating a certificate doesn't means marks always. Your marks may get deduce also, so be careful.

Hope this will be helpful.

Good luck
