I am from SC category.. Graduated in bachelor in veterinary science.. I have average academic profile... How much should i score to get FABM and ABM of IIMA and IIML.... As i have graduation in allied agriculture so will it hamper my chances?

Vemireddy Rushitha Student Expert 15th Oct, 2019

Hello Aspirant,

As you have mentioned that you belong to SC category, you should have a minimum of 60 percent and above to make it into any of the above mentioned colleges. Therefore make sure to get this percent. The course that you have already persued might not add up as your advantage since it is not related to the field you are applying.

Good luck!

Miles Education 15th Nov, 2019

While all IIMs offer some great courses, a good idea is to enroll for a course that gives you the best of both worlds - IIM alumni status and short career relevant course. The IIM Lucknow course  (https://www.mileseducation.com/analytics) by Wiley is a great example of leadership in business course for management professionals.

Another course is the IIML WileyNXT Analytics course  (https://www.mileseducation.com/finance/iim-lucknow-analytics) for finance and accounting professionals.

You can choose any of these courses along with the Wiley certified business analyst certification (https://www.mileseducation.com/analytics/WCBA) .
