Christ and XIME are from the same league. Christ University is better in terms of faculty and ROI and Xime is a little expensive. In chirst University, you will get exposure amd colleagues from foreign as well. The teaching is a little old school at christ as compared to xime & xime comes with a  Xavier's tag. Both of them are located in IT hub of india. So, the best choice, winning with a few points will be chirst University.


please help me to select one college out of these for MBA 1.Alliance school of business 2.Christ University 3.XIME

Awanya Dabas 12th Mar, 2020


Out of Alliance school of business, Christ University and XIME, Christ University is the best for MBA in my perspective.

Though, all the three universities are good but Christ University has a slight edge over the other two.

Also, it offers good course structure, study material, faculty and placements.

Hope this answer helps!

My MAT percentile for Feb 2020 is 88.22. Is there any chance of me getting a call from XIME,Bangalore?

Harshita Sharan Srivastava Student Expert 28th Feb, 2020
Hello aspirant,

Yes you have a high chance of getting a call from XIME on the basis of your mat percentile as generally the cut off of the college is around 85 percentile. However, you'll have to work hard for gdpi process to convert the college. You can also look for following institute based on your MAT score:
  • NL Dalmia Institute of Management Studies and Research
  • BIMM Pune
  • IFMR Chennai
  • TAPMI Manipal
  • PUMBA- Pune
  • Christ University
  • VIT

All the best
