Dream of doing MBA from a good B-school like MDI may come true even with your average percentile scored in CAT 2015 as the Murshidabad campus of Management Development Institute (MDI) has extended its admission application date for PGDM 2016-18 batch till April, 10, 2016. MDI Murshidabad will accept only CAT 2015 scores in its PGDM 2016 admission process. It is a good opportunity for those candidates who have scored around 60-70 percentile in CAT 2015 to explore admission opportunity in another campus of well renowned B-school, Management Development Institute.

While the legacy, infrastructure, learning and placement at MDI Gurgaon is well renowned, it was difficult to contemplate that the 2 year old MDI Murshidabad would also achieve new milestones for its first batch.

First batch on way to high placements
MDI launched its Murshidabad  campus in 2014 with its maiden PGDM batch 2014-16. Despite being its first batch at Murshidabad, MDI students have been able to achieve high placement packages. So far, the first batch students at MDI Murshidabad have achieved an average salary of Rs.8.5 lakhs in the placement 2016. This average is proposed to go further as the placement at MDI Murshidabad is going on.

This is in contrast to the  B schools including newest IIMs who are struggling for their survival despite all the support from MHRD, Govt of India. MDI has not only successfully launched its new campus but has also been able to establish new milestones in placements for the very first batch of students.
