I scored a composite score of 719.50 in dec MAT. am i eligible for mba in PUMBA college?

Sampriti Student Expert 21st Jan, 2020
PUMBA requires a minimum of 600 in MAT and since your scores are way above that you can definitely get it. In fact you should also check out other colleges with your scores so you can have a good number of options to choose from.

Do look out for these colleges also
  • XIME Bangalore
  • Christ University Bangalore
  • Institute of Public Enterprise Hyderabad
  • IFIM Business School
  • BIMTECH Noida for their PGDM programs in Insurance Management and Retail Management
  • ITM Navi Mumbai
  • TAPMI Manipal for their PGDM program in Healthcare.

These are also decent colleges with good ROI and decent placements. All of them usually provides an average compensation package of 6-7 lakhs in reputed companies and all of them are in industrial vicinity so you can have good scope for career development and getting live projects to work on during your studies.

Good Luck
