Nirma Mba or Xiss Hr which should i join?

Mayank Chowdhary 4th Mar, 2020

No offense against any institutes as both of this institute are very well known and have their own pros and advantages. But if I were about to choose, I would have gone with NIRMA UNIVERSITY, AHMEDABAD. It's ranked among the top 30 B-schools of India and is one of the best in the field as well as it has great faculty and educational facilities along with well equipped labs and infrastructure. The placement opportunities are also decent.

Refer to the sites below to know about detail about both of the colleges...



Both of them have fees close to 10 lakhs per annum.

Best wishes. Thank you.

which is better for MBA - XISS Ranchi or icfai business school gurgaon

Pranav Mishra 27th Feb, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Talking about XISS RANCHI if you are getting HR from that college than it will be a best option for you because it is one of the best college for Human Resource Management in India. Other than HR all other options like finance marketing and rural is just an average option which I won't recommend you. Talking about ICFAI gurgaon it is a branch college of ICFAI business school Hyedrabad and it is also an average MBA college which I won't recommend you to do. So from my side XISS HRM is best option if you are not able to get it don't go for anything work hard and try for getting some good MBA college.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.


I Secured 93.26%ile in cmat 2020.. I am interested in doing MBA in HR, So joining Weschool Mumbai will be a wise decision or joining XISS Ranchi?? I stay in Jharkhand so because fees also matters..someone please share their view.. help needed

Manish Singh 13th Feb, 2020

I can understand what you must be going through but looking through the data of both colleges,  weschool is much more better than xlss college ranchi. Weschool is more expensive while xlss is comparatively less expensive but the placement and internship programs at Weschool are much more better. So I would suggest weschool.  But if you still want to stay near your place, go for xlss ,its not bad either


chances of converting xiss ranchi at 64.78 percentile in cmat {marketing or finance} general category ?

Pranav Mishra 12th Feb, 2020

Hello Aspirant,

Marketing and finance is not a core program for XISS RANCHI so your chances are there but exactly no one can say that there is also a reservation for Christians in XISS RANCHI, One thing that I will tell that work hard in preparation of GD and PI because it's marks is also important for selection perspective, People use to say me that no general candidates below 95 percentile in CMAT is selected in XISS RANCHI HR program but I have seen two girls having 85 and 87 percentile in CMAT got selected in XISS RANCHI HR program by getting good in their GD-PI process so my mantra for you is to only work hard and hard for GD-PI preperation.

I hope the above information is beneficial for you.

All the best.
