Showing 824 out of 824 Questions

with 82 percentile in XAT, should i apply for BIMTECH?? Is it a good college for MBA

Sampriti Student Expert 27th Jan, 2020
BIMTECH Noida is an excellent college for MBA and is now a days performing really well in the fields of marketing and finance. With your XAT percentile you should definitely apply for it and must keep at least 5-6 colleges to choose from as the competition in the selection process is usually very high.

The fees is nearly 12 lakhs but the placements are really good. Reputed companies like Accenture, ICICI, Maruti Suzuki, EY, Amazon and others visit the campus and the average compensation package offered is nearly 8-10 lakhs. Moreover they have a residential campus and good infrastructure. And they also have a pretty strong alumni base so you can have good career advantages afterwards.

Good Luck

I scored 81 percentile in XAT and I am from agricultural engineering background. Can I expect a call from XSRM?

Sampriti Student Expert 27th Jan, 2020
With your XAT percentile you can definitely get a call from XSRM as they require a minimum of 80 percentile in XAT. Moreover there isn't a huge competition for the rural management program of XUB so with a little hard work you can get through.
The placements of XSRM are also decent and the average compensation package offered there is nearly 5-6 lakhs and the program is well reputed among corporates. Most of the organizations recruit for the CSR roles only.

Good Luck

I have 82.05 percentile in XAT Class X - 92.6 Class XII - 87.4 BE - 83.1 Work Ex - 3+ Do I have chance to get a call from KJ Somaiya

Sampriti Student Expert 25th Jan, 2020
You have a pretty decent XAT percentile but KJ Somaiya Institute of Management Studies and Research requires a minimum of 85 percentile in both CAT and XAT exams. The Institute considers only the overall percentile. So it may be a little difficult for you to get a call. But you can still get some very good colleges with your XAT scores like
  • IIFM Bhopal
  • XIME Bangalore
  • IFMR Chennai
  • IMT Nagpur and Hyderabad
  • Prin LN Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research
  • Christ University Bangalore
  • Great Lakes Gurgaon and others.

These colleges will also offer you good placement opportunities and good academics and you must try to attend as many interview processes as possible to get enough options to choose from.

Good Luck

I have scored 69.903 percentile in XAT 2020 and based on this percentile which college is better in decreasing order from best to not so good : IMT Nagpur, BIMTECH(for IB), IMI Kolkata, FOSTIIMA, SIESCOM, IMI Bhubaneshwar and Universal School of Business Mumbai. I really need to join MBA this year.

Sampriti Student Expert 25th Jan, 2020
If you're getting a call from all these colleges then you must attend the selection process of all of them because you should always keep some options to choose from as the competition is always very tough. But if you get selected in all of them you must go for IMT Nagpur first. IMT campuses are good for marketing programs and several reputed companies visit the campus. After that IMI Bhubaneshwar and Kolkata. They are also pretty decent colleges in terms of marketing, finance and HR programs. The average package offered there is nearly 5-6 lakhs.

The rest of the colleges you've mentioned are not very good as per your percentile. You can still get some average placements there with the average compensation package offered being 3-4 lakhs but you should keep them as your last resort.

BIMTECH Noida is good for the PGDM program but the career scope for the specialized programs is very poor. It cannot assure you a placement.

Good Luck

I have 94.2% in X. 95.25 % in XII. I have done my B. COM graduation from ST. XAVIERS COLLEGE KOLKATA with 7.8 CGPA.I have no work experience. If I score a percentile between 88-95 in CAT/XAT what good mba colleges can I get admission in?
