I am aiming for 2012 batch of Ex MBA. I have a query regarding work exp. After completing my B.Tech I had joined as Graduate Trainee Engr. from Aug 2006 to Nov.2007 (1yrs and 3 months) and then i got Permanent As Asst Mgr in Nov. 2007 and working there still now. Do they will consider my work Exp as Graduate Trainee Engineer.
Need some advice on PGPEX-VLM and placement options that could be open for me. As far as my profile goes ...I did my engg from a pvt institute and then worked for a cpl of years in the Technology/Consulting side of a consulting firm of repute. Did my MBA from IIT Delhi and since then have been working as a senior business analyst in a top pharma analytics firm for the past 2 years. So all in all over 3 years experience for me at the moment.
Any advice is welcome
Thanks much !
I shall be sharing my experiences which may or may not be useful to anybody...Start with Einstein way..........
Expectation V/s realization rational mode transcends into 360 degree outlook mode,that is what IIM teaches you.With this comm. skills,confidence,best teaching exp.(sometimes @ life too) are by products .It resembles w.r.t one will say polishing Diamond but I will say refining crude oil(Engg way) and every bad element coming out is worthy......Leave others to explore final outcome...and process will be on......
Any way IIM justifies Alma mater crown in many senses,faculty guest lectures,library, curriculum,placements,zeal......
Before sharing IIM experience lets start with Entrance.
Guys its all @ profile.One has to strike thru in application itself.Justify his seat..still you wont get a chance for this wonderful experience as one has to be unique.
Not in writing style but as a overall personality and work exp,but the decision authority lies with IIM or IITs.
Prepare basic maths,verbal(Not CAT level) Gmat level but prepare probability and permutation combination ...Not required to crack test..I repeat not for cracking entrance test ..but to avoid cracks beneath you when u reach to IIMC.
In Interview you have to be clear with Vision and goal,Mfg sector how will you lead this sector and your work exp. with illustrative examples.
I got thru all this...One say My dream..but this is the time when you can see dream as you can sleep 7 hrs with relaxation...But once you achieved your this dream no time to dream(Physically)
Looking at back I tell you friend its gives me immense satisfaction about journey..and it will lead me to write my other experiences...
I am ROshan Batheri PGPEX VLM batch 3. Request to include me in the VLFM Alumni Workshop at IIT Chennai.

I got selected for 3rd batch of VLMP
Let me answer your questions on point to point basis !!
"though he'd complete 5 years in industry only in June whereas the course starts in April. Can this be a cause for not getting shortlisted for the aptitude test/interview calls? "
-->> I feel he should try out and send his admission form. A lot will depend on what he writes in those essays and convinces the admission panel, in terms of relevant experience and how he will be a good fit. The idea for the min experience etc is the end student should not feel at sea when sitting with other students who have 10 years of work exp.
Also, should the referees be immediate supervisors etc?
It would help and can be good value add in terms of convincing about his fit into this course.
Hi Kush & Vivek,
Thanks for sharing all the information regarding VLM. A friend of mine, who is not on PG, is very interested in the course though he'd complete 5 years in industry only in June whereas the course starts in April. Can this be a cause for not getting shortlisted for the aptitude test/interview calls? Also, should the referees be immediate supervisors etc?
To all the potential Candidates.... I have been receiving lot of queries from interested candidates about the admission procedure...entrance exam etc..
At this time looking at the 21 December 2008 deadline, I feel the candidates should concentrate on the Application form and their essay part. That I feel will play a major role in your final selection and proving to the admission committee that you belong to this course.
Once the admission form is out of the way you can start basic preparation for the entrance by brushing up on the analytical ability, verbal abilities from any standard CAT, GMAT books. For the Engineering aptitude,test its not so standard and the test checks on your basic knowledge of engineering funda's of EEE circuits, pn diodes, metals and mettalurgy, IT, Mechanical Engineering etc. You can look at some GATE papers on these topics and just muggaofy some questions on all the topics....Lots of the question can be solved by common sense...
Please feel free to ask any further questions.
