Questions related to XIMB

Showing 145 out of 145 Questions

i have scored 174 in nmat. Can i expect a call from ximb hr and also i am from Odisha

Sampriti Student Expert 10th Jan, 2020
With your NMAT scores you may not get a call from XIMB Bhubaneshwar as they consider percentiles only above 85 in NMAT.  You'll get the percentile after a few days of the declaration of NMAT results. And here 85 percentile would be nearly in the range 190-210. But you can surely check out colleges like ICFAI Business School Hyderabad. Moreover if you are inclined towards HR domain then you can check out colleges through other entrance exams like CAT or CMAT.

Good Luck

Soumya Kanta Sarkar 11th Jan, 2020

Hi Shanta,

I hope I am the right person to give you this information since I am pursuing MBA in HRM from Xavier University. Xavier Institute of Management is the institute under Xavier University and has the authority to provide specialisations like Finance, Marketing, Operations, Analytics and IT-Systems. Human Resource Management comes under the umbrella of Xavier School of Human Resource Management(XAHR).  Same is the case with Sustainability Management, Rural Management and MBF. They have their separate schools.X-UMG is now being changed to XAHS or Xavier School for Human Settlements.

Now coming to the fee structure:

  • BM-20 Lakhs (excluding hostel and other charges).
  • HRM-20 Lakhs (excluding hostel and other charges).
  • RM-17 lakhs(excluding hostel and other charges).

The exams that are accepted for admission are:

  • CAT
  • XAT
  • NMAT
  • X-GMT

The cutoff for the BM course lies at 91 percentile whereas for HR it is 85+. For RM course it’s 70+ percentile. However, these are the cut off percentile only for the Non-Odisha candidates. There is a 50% reservation for the Domicile candidates and the cut-offs are also lower for them.

Coming to the placements:

BM, HR and RM are the flagship courses that were taught under XIMB previously and have very good quality placements till date. The average for BM goes to 12+ lakhs per annum whereas for HR it goes above 11+ lakhs per annum. For RM, it is 7.5+lakhs per annum. There is also a gurantee of 100 percent placement almost every year.

The procedure for application is after you get all your results, you have to go to the website,fill the necessary application form. Then you have to submit your scores and pay the requisite amount online. After that based upon the criteria, you will be called for GD/PI rounds and based upon the suitability you will be granted “Selected/Not Selected” status.

I hope I have been able to solve your query. All the best!!!

xim Bangalore admission procedure

Sampriti Student Expert 10th Jan, 2020
XIME Bangalore considers CAT ,XAT ,CMAT,ATMA and MAT. The best way to apply is through CAT as there are less seats for other examinations. They require a minimum of 75 percentile in CAT. They usually give a call as soon as you meet their admission criteria and you'll be called for the GD/PI rounds which is conducted in various cities and the final selection would be based on your overall performance.
