  • NDIM New Delhi (fees = 9.3 lakhs)
  • JIMS Rohini (7.7 lakhs)
  • BIMM Pune (7.85 lakhs)
  • Globsyn Business School Kolkata (7.6 lakhs)

These are some good colleges who select their candidates based on their performance in the GD/PI rounds. You'll just have to apply to the college and select the city where you want your interview to be conducted and they'll call you for the process there and based on your performance there they will select you. The average compensation package offered there is nearly 5-6 lakhs.

With your NMAT scores the best option you have now is ICFAI Business School Hyderabad and other 8 campuses. They also require a minimum of 150 in NMAT and they'll call you for the GD/PI rounds in Hyderabad and based on your performance there you'll be allotted one if the 9 campuses. IBS is good for marketing and finance programs. Among the IBS campuses the top 3 colleges are
