Latest update from admissions office :- Hi all, please note that you will be able to access your GD/PI details on the ximb website only after 11th feb. The deadline had to be extended due to some administrative constraints. Also you will be sent a hard copy of your call letter by post.

Since @Arushi19 has shared the list of GD topics of last year, I thought of sharing the same for 2012-2014..


GD topics:


Underachievement of indian space programmes.

Should NGOs governed by the laws or not ?

Global Warming

FDI in retail- good or bad?

Demographic dividend or demographic nightmare

"Winner Takes it all!!"

Is God male?

Trade Unions Hamper the growth

Rush for MBA is a rush for big money

A stumble may prevent a downfall

What matters? I or Me or Myself.

Social Networking sites do more harm than good.

Capital punishment shows that the nation has failed to improve a person.

A cynic is one who knows the price of everything but doesn't know the value of anything

A red-dot was made by one of the panelists on the board and we were asked to start with the proceedings after being given 2 minutes to think over the topic

"MBA without placements."

Leadership Crisis

Films are corrupting Indian youth.

Education in India - Burden or Necessity

The picture in the rear-view mirror is clearer than in the windshield.

If I was the Prime Minister

'Selling liquor in a Gandhian state is an anomaly'

Profit@Customer satisfaction

Emerging economies and evaporating values

Capitalism in economy is not favored,but others are worse.

Learning from b schools

Business Ethics - Reality or passing phase?

Papa don't preach.

Gave a skewed/zigzag graph on a board , and told us to discuss.

"A ship in a harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for."


ATB to all..

As per latest update from admissions office : No emails are being sent out for call letters. As such, the hard-copy will be required. Only in severe cases of postal failure will the college inform applicants of the alternative, most probably an email, which can act as a substitute.

Kunal Choudhury @coolkunal21
that would mean that the GD/PI call letters will be sent through mail only?
what about the GD/PI dates and slot details, would that be sent by email?

if the hard copy has to be carried to the interview then we would need sufficient lead time as for many us our interview city would be different from the permanent address where the mails will be going..

@dibyabttb , Talks are still on, no official confirmations yet !

@coolkunal21 , The domicile thing is just restricted to relaxation of cut-offs. No reservations per se. If you qualify for the GD/PI process, it is purely dependent on your performance in that stage.
