Hi Puys!!

I just finished reading "The McKinsey Way" Written by Ethan M. Rasiel - Tata Mc Graw-Hill Edition.

Something that I have to say about the book:

Founded in 1923, Mckinsey is one of the most prestigious consulting firms in the world. The firm recruits the creme-de-la-creme students of all business schools. Getting a job with it is very difficult ; and still more difficult is working with Mckinsey. This is coz of the high job pressure and long working hours. But still, there's something about this firm - which has made it one of the best and most sought-after consulting firms in the world. And this book tells you why..

This book tells you about...

1) How to keep your communications MECE (Mutually Exclusive, collectively exhaustive) i.e. every doc, ppt, emails must be complete, without avoiding confusion and overlap.

2) The Elevator test : suppose you have just 30 seconds with a prospective client, what will you tell him so that he is convinced and gives you an appointment..

3) How to make your presentations simple and effective - so that your client doesn't sleep off in the middle of it!!

3)How to survive in any High Pressure Organisation

4) How to have a life after working for 80 hours a week..

And Many more.....

A must read for wannabe MBA's and wannabe CEO's...

Hi All,

Just an intro, i hv been a member of pagalguy but never posted in any forum till now. I have few queries. You ppl would definetely feel rediculous but out of my curiosity im asking. Please answer my questions.

First of all i am in wailist of selected candidates for SIOM Nashik.

From March till now my number came down from 69 to 5.(General category)
There is one more list going to be released on 25th May. This time im expecting that I would be there in.

I desperately wanted to join in SIOM.
but as said, the college will start from june 1. If i get a call on 25th, 5 days will not be sufficient for me to come there and join. as I am working and i my minimum notice period is 1 month. Will that be OK if i join late?

One more Q. there are 72 general seats I guess and my waitlist number was 69 at first. Now it came down to 5. That means 64 people didnt turn up for SIOM? do havea ny idea why this happened? or my calculation is wrong?

hey! i am sorry if i have wrote any thing wrong.

I wanted to know how placements are going this 2009.

Please dont mind and reply to my queries..

Thanks


Hii Harika!!

I guess my gd-pi slot was on the same day with u...and my director's PI was immediately after yours..Hey, feel comfortable to ask questions..this forum is for that only..

First of all, congrats for getting through!! Lemme start answering ur queries:

Regarding the job notice period of one month : I guess you may loose one month's salary if you don't give a "one-month's" notice. But other than that, there should be no difficulties in leaving your job and joining SIOM from the first week of june. Talk with your HR Dept at work..they'll guide you better about it.

Also, you can call up the SIOM Admissions dept and ask them for some extension for you to join the college. That's something I'd suggest you to do in case if it's difficult for you to leave job and join on 1st. Since the college authorities also know that leaving the job and joining an insti in 5 days is a difficult task, I guess they should be cooperating.

Regarding your question about the waitlist movement, hey - such huge waitlist movements take place at all colleges. The IIM-A waitlist goes up till WL-30. this means 30 ppl don't take up admission in IIMA (probably they're IIT'ians and have got plum job offers already). SIIB waitlist for general category is at waitlist-84 or so right now.(for 120 seats). Narsee Monjee waitlist has gone till WL-400 (for their 255 open seats). So, this is a normal trend. Nothing to worry or feel sceptical about - as to why people are not opting for admissions.

As regarding the placement scenario, i am not a person who can talk on that. Perhaps a senior would be a better person to answer on this.
But in general, the placement scenario has been affected in all colleges this year.However, most of the good colleges are almost nearing 100% placements.

p.s. you already have a good job with a top IT firm if i remember correctly...plz counsel with seniors and some professionals whether you would like to leave the job and do an MBA..

Ciao

Hii Puys!!

I've heard that FMS Delhi prescribes a list of books - which the new students who get admission to the MBA batch have to read and come before their term starts in June..

Can any FMS student pls post the list of books suggested by the college..so that ppl who're not lucky to get into FMS can also read the same (and get the same gyaan...)

Thanking you in advance...

Hii Puys..
I have already posted this on the SIIB-2009-2011 thread..am posting it again here for the benifit of fellow puys..

1) First of all, it's a niche programme. I don't know of any other institute in india which offers such a program. I saw the program course structure (http://www.siib.ac.in/MBA%20-%20E%20&%20E%2009-10.pdf ) and found that it will give you an exposure to the Oil and Gas Sector, Energy sector, and Environment sector.
2) There are not many institutes in India which cater specially to these sectors. For example, for Oil and gas, you have Insti of Petroleum Management, Gandhinagar, Rajiv Gandhi Insti of petroleum technology etc, for energy sector, you have NTPI. I am not aware of institutes catering to the Environmental sector. This program at SIIB combines the things that will be taught at all these above institutes.
3) There is going to be a lot of growth in Oil and Gas as well as Energy sector in india as well as the world. The demand of oil and gas is going to stay and hence, there will be a demand of skilled professionals in this field. Even in Energy (Power sector), I have read in newspapers that Power companies like NTPC, Reliance Energy, Indiabulls, Adani Energy are going to increase their capacitites by a huge amount. Hence, this sector is also going to require skilled professionals.
Talking about the Environment sector, sooner or later, India will also have to adhere to strict environmental laws like Kyoto Protocol..and there will be a demand of such professionals from the Automobile, Mfg, Chemicals and Power Industries.
4) Since this will be the first batch starting from this year, you may be having an apprehension about the placement and stuffs. I guess you should have a look at the placement of IPMG (http://www.ipmg.ac.in/ ) - you'll find that global oil giants like Schlumberger, Weatherford, Cairn etc came there to recruit students. So, probably, I guess, if SIIB does some good work, you can expect placements in the same line.
5) The following are the companies that you can expect to work once you pursue such a course:(I suggest you have a look at the list of recruiters for IPMG : http://www.ipmg.ac.in/pdf/Placement2009.pdf If SIIB does good work, you can expect such type of recruiters for you as well..)
Oil and Gas cos: All PSU Oil Cos, KPMG, Gujarat Gas, GSPC, GAIL, Essar Oil, British Gas,Shell
Energy cos : NTPC, Reliance Energy, Tata Power, Jindal steel and Power and many more..Even Nuclear Energy is an upcoming sector in india..
6) Last..with a few personal insights:
- Since you'll be the first batch, there may be a initial hitches..coz the institute will be putting everything in place for the first time.Once everything is in place, it should be smooth sailing..
- The decision to join should be depending on ur bachelors degree and whether you have a willingness to work in this sector..you may have to forget getting a white collar IT job or a high-paying finance job..
- On the other hand, there's lots of money in the oil and gas sector as well...the biggest companies of the world are from Oil and gas...
- It also depends on ur profile...are u a fresher..or u have a job on hand..also on ur family background - whether you want to complete your post graduation immediately or don't mind working for 1-2 yrs and then coming back to studies...
- the course fees is 6 lacs...add 2 lacs for hostel+ mess..so, that makes it 8 lacs...probably this is a little on the higher side (considering the recession in india..IPMG's total fees is 6 lacs)
- Since the course intake is just 30 students, placements for the entire batch should not be difficult...coz there are many companies in this sector and very few good colleges offering a degree in this field..
Whew..a long post...any more questions are welcome...(I hope you've not slept off by now!)

Disclaimer : I am not promoting any college friends...I have given links for IPMG coz this is one college in the energy sector I know well about and it's MBA is somewhat similiar to this programme....am just a student like you..am just sharing some insights coz I've worked in this sector and I am looking forward to work in it post MBA..

Hey first of all thanks for sharing the info :biggrin:
since u have worked in this sector can u tell me how hard is it to climb up the ladder.....
And isnt 8 lacs+ ur personal expenses a bit on the higher side considering the recession, for a course which is just inroduced. Besides, isnt it true that their flagship course placements have also gone down quite a bit...
lookin fwd to fellow puys suggestions and comments


Hiii!!

Climbing up the ladder may be a slow process if you work with a PSU..but at the same time, there's job security which you don't get in the private sector. At the same time, if you opt to work for the private sector, climbing up may be much faster - just like any other sector. Plus, Oil and Gas sector may fetch you an international job position as well..

Ya, 8 lacs + expenses are a bit high..but check the expenses at any other good b-school - be it IMT, MDI, SIBM or any other and you'll find that the expenses are in the same range. (Sadly, MBA education in india has become costly yaar ) But my personal belief is that 8 lacs will be a good investment 2 years down the line...

I'm not sure about the exact placement scenario for their flagship course. But I believe every B-school is facing problems in placing its students this year due to recession. Still, I believe this is a fundamentally strong sector - and it has not been much affected by recession. (the demand for oil and gas, energy and environment suff will always be there..)

My personal opinion : I don't know about ur profile and work ex....but, If you have a good job on hand, I suggest you shouldn't apply. If you're a fresher(and don't have a job of your choice), or if you strongly wish to complete your studies immediately, I'd say you should try for it..

Hope that answers ur questions...

plz help...!!

thanx...!!


Hiii..I'd love to answer this question..These are the few points that I'd like to say..

1) First of all, it's a niche programme. I don't know of any other institute in india which offers such a program. I saw the program course structure (http://www.siib.ac.in/MBA%20-%20E%20&%20E%2009-10.pdf ) and found that it will give you an exposure to the Oil and Gas Sector, Energy sector, and Environment sector.
