Hi Rishi,

For admission in XLRI  PGDM (BM) and PGDM (HRM), there is no minimum percentage of marks in graduation.

However, PGDM in General management requires a bachelor's degree and five years of managerial experience.

Fyi, last date to apply was December 10, 2019.


businesses administration is best or hrm in xlri

Loveena Gupta 11th Dec, 2019

hello Vanisri

First and Foremost it's all about your interest or what objectifies your goal or your best interests and that's what makes the programme best.

Well, it it's XLRI we are discussing about then the BM (business administration)  is ranked within top 5 in INDIA. And it's HRM (human resource management) is considered the best in ASIA PACIFIC.

XLRI offers two year full time  Post Graduate Diploma (PGDM) in both the courses .

if we evaluate on the basis of overall cut off in BM and HRM courses for 2019

for BM                                  for HM

for female - 95                     for female - 93

for male - 96                        for male - 94

Cut off for BM course is slightly higher than HM  and this college evaluate scores on the basis of XAT.

Although BM is quite diverse as it comprises of finance, general management, operations, organisational behavior, etc basically it is a core course.

Whereas HRM is specialized course and it basically focuses on the human aspect of organisation . People who are certain about their interest in HR.

On basis of placements, students receive higher packages of around 23 lakhs in both the courses. Reputed companies come for both the streams.  Although campus placements is about for one or two years after that you have to build on your own and your interests will decide your long term success.

In terms of fee structure, both the courses have approx. 10 lakhs p.a.

My answer can seem to be a bit neutral because in both the courses there are very slight differences in terms of placement or fees. These courses are best in nation so obviously they have their best faculties.

In my personal opinion you can opt for BM because it is more diverse and you should choose for HR if you are certain and figured out your interests. but if you are getting admission in BM even if you want HR so going for BM would not be a bad choice but vice versa is not true.

Calculate your interests and decide because XLRI is definitely a great shot so choose wisely. Your passion can lie in either of them or in neither of them.

Good Luck


my academic history is bad & Cat results is 99 persentile which b school I choose?

rishabh5978@gmail.com 15th Nov, 2019

Hello there. Hope you are doing good. You have not mentioned the exact details of your academic history so I won't be able to tell the exact business schools which you will be eligible for. But I can help you by w=giving a very general answer.

Admission to most of the top B Schools is done considering your whole profile i.e your academic history, work experience (if any) and your CAT percentile. Since you have mentioned 99 percentile, then it is an exceptionally good score to get. If you have work experience or any other skill which you think that will be sufficient enough to impress the interviewers, then your academic history won't matter much. Though in certain B Schools, separate weight age is given to academic history but your CAT score can overshadow that very well.

You need not worry about the list of colleges. You will be eligible for almost all the top B Schools.

I hope you found this answer helpful. Good luck.
