GOOD LUCK, STAY MOTIVATED AND HOPE THIS HELPS.
i got 77.007 percentile in ibsat and ive been shortlisted for ibs bangalore campus. with this percentile can i get ibs hyderbad? ive kept the campus tranfer mail to the admission team.
I hope you are doing good .As per your query, I am sorry to tell you that once you are shortlisted , it would be very difficult to change of campus. Shortlisting of all campuses is done almost at same time . So if they changed your seats to other campus, then vacant seat will be wasted and that will be their loss of fees.However, you can give a try with a geniune reason and may be change your seats if someone else(very rare chane but you can try)
Hope you found this answer helpful. Good luck for your future
i got 77 percentile in ibsat, i want to tranferr my campus from ibs bangalore to ibs hyderbad ,is it possible?
Your marks is quite good in IBSAT examination. It's mainly higher education entrance examination.
Campus changing is possible. If you stay nearby the ibs campus. But i would suggest you to visit the campus in physically and request them, I'm sure, they will help you in change of the campus or ask the admission counsellor of IBS. I think the admission counsellor will help you out from this.
All the best.

What is the ROI for IBS Hyderabad and is it worth preparing for IBSAT or I shld concentrate on other mba entrance exams?
IBS Hyderabad has an unique and innovative approach to business education, that focuses on providing the right knowledge, imparting the right skills for enduring success in management careers, and shaping the right attitudes.
ROI depends on your graduation background and your ability to learn and explore during your MBA study.
I think its a very expensive college and does not gives a student the justice for the fees what they pay.They will charge you around 16–18 lakhs and will provide you with the average package of 6–7 lakhs. But here comes the catch if you have no other options left then this might be the best option for you because the quality of MBA they provide is good. The intake in IBS Hyderabad is 1200 students and there is no 100 percent guarantee of the placements.
The more you learn and connect the theory to corporate situations, it will be beneficial for you to explain your learning & understanding while your GDPI rounds during placements. Do some homework and list down the institutes and their placement data.
You can concentrate on other exams like CAT which gives you a lot many options of choosing colleges like IIMs , IIFT for MBA in foreign trade and other exams like MAT and XAT can also be written rather than IBSAT , which is considered for only ICFAI colleges.
