Which college is better XIME Bangalore or XIMB for marketing

Sampriti Student Expert 18th Jul, 2019

If you are inclined towards marketing only then XIMB will be a better option. In every ways XIMB is better than XIME be it a course on business management or Human Resource. But the placements are good in both the colleges and you can get a decent average package of 8-10 lakhs from both the colleges. 

Good luck 


Hi All, Any possibility to enroll in XIME/Christ college in banagalore if scoring less percentile in MAT Exam.

Sampriti Student Expert 18th Jul, 2019

If you have scored lesser than 90 percentile in MAT being a general category student then your chances of getting into any of these colleges is very low as they have a certain percentage of seats only for MAT. 

But if you are focusing on these two colleges only then you can appear for CAT or XAT for the next academic year. Or you can consider some other colleges based on your MAT scores. 

Good luck 


Is Xaviers institute of management and entrepreneurship, Bangalore good for bba

VIKASH KUMAR Student Expert 7th Jul, 2019

Placements in college are satisfactory. The average salary package offered to the students of finance is around 7.50-8 LPA. The average salary package offered varies with different domains. Most of the companies that visit the campus are reputed ones, and even a bunch of startups visit the campus for placements. They offer good salary packages and good profiles. Marketing and finance domains always show good progress regarding placements, but the placements are always a question for domains like operations, human resource, and analytics

Hello! So, I am getting calls from XIME Chennai, Kochi, IPE Hyderabad, etc. based on my MAT - May 2019 score. Should I go for any of these?

yogita matlani Student Expert 29th May, 2019

Dear PD,

If you can wait and feel that you can perform better than your last attempt in CAT then I would suggest you should start working so that you can show some work experience. Interviewers don't like students who take gap year just to prepare for CAT entrance exam since CAT is an aptitude test, not an exam which requires the learning of facts and figures, unlike JEE or NEET and then you should write CAT exam in the coming November. No offence to these colleges but you will spend around 12-15 lakh and you won't get the placement of more than 6 lakh per annum from this college provided if you are in top 10% of your batch. A graduate who studied from a mediocre college earns between 3-4 lakh per annum so do you feel that a jump from 4 lakh to 6 lakh per annum with so much of investment is worth it? If you feel that you can work harder than before and can score percentile of at least 88 then only take a drop. If you don't feel that you can get a percentile around 90 in CAT then don't take a drop because even if you start with a low package, if you work hard then you can get better.
