How to Finalize your MBA Admission? 10 Key Tips
You need to take following 10 steps to choose the right MBA college with the 10 parameters recommended by MBAUniverse.com.

 

1. Exam Accepted & their Cut Off: Check your eligibility

Different MBA colleges accept different entrance exam score. Your eligibility for MBA admission depends upon the fact whether you have taken that exam. For Example IIMs accept only CAT exam score; XLRI accepts XAT exam score; NMIMS accepts NMAT score; Symbiosis Pune accepts SNAP exam score and so on. So, you need to appear in right entrance exam for admission to right MBA college apart from fulfilling the academic eligibility criteria.

 

2. MBA Vs PGDM: Select type of MBA College carefully 

You need to decide before applying for the MBA programme whether you wish to pursue university MBA like from FMS Delhi, JBIMS Mumbai, Symbiosis Pune or wish to pursue PGDM from other top MBA colleges like XLRI, SPJIMR, MDI among others. Besides, after passing of IIM Act, most IIMs are conferring MBA degree instead of earlier PGDM. So, first check the college and then apply

 

3. Fee: Calculate Total Amount you will spend, not just Tuition Fee

MBA fee is in the range of Rs. 2 Lakhs to Rs.25 Lakhs in different MBA colleges in India. While fee for FMS Delhi is less than Rs.2 lakhs, Fee for JBIMS is Rs.6 lakhs and fee for IIM A,B,C is above Rs.20 lakhs. While the tuition fee is much less, the total expenses are high enough and are sometimes equal to tuition fee. So first check the total fee for two years before finalizing the admission

 

4. Placements: Check Average Salary and Top Recruiters

Good Placement over the years is one of the important criteria to finalise the MBA admission. Better to check past placement record and average salary of the MBA college. Read more
