Here's my view on your queries (disclaimer: its jst mypersonal view
I am having about roughly 8.5 years of experience in IT, out of which I have more than 4 years experience working for Oracle India.
I intend to do an MBA in IIMB.
The following are my scores in my academics:
X standard :75%
XII Standard :78%
BE Electronics Engg. : 68% on aggregate.
Do I stand a chance to get into PGP or PGSEM in IIMB with the above academic record?
For a PGP admit, past academic record is increasingly becoming important in all IIMs. However, if you crack CAT (99.x, towards the higher side), there is a realistic chance. Though, with regards to PGP, I know of people who did not get a call from B even at 99.6+ cos of either academic record, or work ex etc. That said, I believe your work-ex is a major advantage (you would get the maximum points for work-ex, at least for the intervie call). It would also add a lot of weight to your profile. So, all in all, give CAT your best shot - there is a realistic chance for B.
Also since my mother fell ill, I had to quit oracle and get her treated and hence am currently out of job for the past one year.Is it compulsory that we be on a job to join PGSEM?
I think, for PGSEM, you have an gr8 profile. Your work-ex would make you a very good candidate for PGSEM. As far as being out of work for some time is concerned, that shouldn't be an issue. I know a friend who wasn't working when she applied for the PGSEM course (this year's intake). She started working subsequently, however at the time of the application she was not - she discussed this with the admission committe and they said its not a problem.
Hope it helps.
