DISCLAIMER: I work in the Business Advisory division in a Big4. I completed my MBA from a great B-school in the Philippines. These are my thoughts about consulting. The are not positive. I probably wont have the time to come back and defend what I have to say - but I think all of the following stuff really needs to be said.
The following are my opinions only:
So in short, AIM MBA will be an (Almost!) Indian MBA conducted at Manila... with a higher fees!! :(
I'm a current student at AIM, Manila.
This is to clarify certain questions that were raised here:
1) You dont have to pay for the pre-MBA. You only have to pay for the extra couple of books (one of them was the accountancy book). For us it came to something like Rs1500.
The Pre-MBA is very important. The AIM course is crazy, hectic and difficult all at the same time. For an average student the pre-MBA is important to get a good start or things can become hard later on. I recall, most of the people on the deans list worked v. hard in the preMba (except the CFA-2 and the ex-bankers who were comfortable with finance).
2) The extra time taken is most likely because the number of applicants have risen very very sharply this year. All applications and all essays have to be read before interview invites are sent out.
Hmmm....point noted Sir...
The most obvious things are most easily forgotten..So the "Never Quit" thing is also easily forgotten when you are in trouble...But I will go to the hilt..and push it..
Some advice needed here..:
For a startup with a low budget, what are the best ways of marketing..The ones I thought of are following...
a) Google/Net based marketing with advertisements. As per google a 1200 Rs. monthly plan gives u sufficient boost.
b) The normal pamphlet/booklet trick. But I am going in for high quality print and content which means that I get only a small number of brochures and pamphlets printed.
c) Stickers and posters trick.
These are the obvious ways of marketing. Thinking of something innovative right now. Any Ideas..??..
Now I need some help from you guys...Can anyone suggest some good books on marketing and business development or even on startups...???..I dont have much time to devote to books so would appreciate if u Guys can suggest something real good and crisp..
Thanks for your response. I had done that but not gotten any response. But after reading this thread I am feeling better about things (now that I know that they formally inform about rejection from the process).
So Yes, I'll email them again. I've taken my date already... I just hope i recover by then.
Hi, my question is slightly different:
Does HKUST notify candidates if their profiles have not been considered for an interview? Has anyone got an email/communication to that effect?
I applied in the 1st deadline, but could not submit my GMAT scores. I had to get an eye surgery done instead and couldn't take the test. Now I'll be talking it at the end of this month. (Jan)
Wondering if I'm completely out of the race It is not implausible to think that the HKUST adcomm believe that I'm making excuses and buying time. So... has anyone got any rejection emails from then, because I haven't.
2) What are the alternative IT Consulting companies where i can apply to in NCR Region except McKC?
Thanks & regards
