Hi Guys.. I am 2.6yrs exp IT guy at TCS. I have been trying for CAT for the past 2 years but couldn't get decent score. For my current score I may get admission at Amrita Business School, Coimbatore. But please advice whether it will be a wise decision to try my hand at CAT again or join Amrita. Also kindly note that by next year I will have around 40 months experience. Will that have any effect on the admission since am told good institutes prefer candidates of around 24-36 months exp ?

@Visag not really u can find many ppl with 3-4 yrs exp in b schools. one disadvantage you might face is after getting into a b school u might find it hard to get into a core finance or marketing company. but getting into a b-school should not be a problem.

Hi All,

I have started my career in Jan 2013 in an Ness technologies.I was working in a project as an administrator and DB2 developer. I was happy with the kind of job and developed y interest in DB2 too.

Suddenly after 6 months, i came to know that my project will be changed.

i will have to work in some XML related project (which will of course have some JAVA in it )

now my doubt is that What do you all think is the scope of XML in near future ?Is it good for me to learn XML @the start of my career ?I am really nervous now because Db2 was a boon for my career , as per my seniors opinion.

So please tell me am i going in right direction ? Am i lucky to get a chance on working with XML ?
Thanks !

I am an Engineer, 2012 Batch pass out. As per the age old custom, I got into a software firm (Accenture). I realised that I did not want to base my life as a developer and immediately got out of the firm after a year of work experience. Now Happily quit the job, and studying for MBA exams - CAT and GMAT

Now here is the dilemma. I am from a family of doctors who have their successful private well-to-do established institutes in Bangalore. I have now collaborated with them and have taken up the role of business developer as my pre MBA goal. I will be working on a short term project in health care industry, pre MBA to present in my MBA essay. However, I do need to be very efficient and credible to handle this project. Hence I am looking for short term/long term courses - maybe finance related, Marketing related or any business development related courses which would help me understand the working of any industry and help raise the profits of the institute and establish a benchmark on it own. However, I am not targeting only for health care but I would rather plunge into many other industries and help with the business solutions. Again for this, I need credibility beyond the Engineer tag.

As I am entirely new to this area, I would want help in deciding the right course related to Finance, Marketing or anything related to pre MBA courses that would help me in :

1.) Project in Health care and other industries

2.) Help me find a better job pre MBA (Probably investment banking or any other financial sector) - I am in no hurry to jump into MBA course right away.

3.) A good story for MBA essay where my efforts really mattered to the institute unlike the corporate software firm (which was like an ocean)

PS - Money and Time for the courses will not matter for me.

As a part of my research I found these courses to be interesting. If I can go about it, how should I? Is it really worth? Please advise.

1.) Chartered Financial Analyst

2.) Financial Risk Management

3.) Professional diploma in Digital Marketing

see, salary u can negotiate if u have very sound skills, if u can proove in the interview that ur worth is way more than ur getting right now, then ofcourse u can get more than 100% hike.

I will suggest, build ur skill and then look for jobs, and in expected package, write a big range, maybe 2-3 lpa

Hello puys,

Before my dilemma, A brief of my profile



B.Tech-70%(IT), 2012 batch.

Since I am a 2012 batch pass-out, it's already been an year. I could not get any placement in IT company. After then I prepared for CAT 2012, scored a decent score but not good enough to get calls.Having said that I already have 1 year gap and CAT 2013 is near.So I want to get into job so that I can carry out my expenses as well as gain some work experience on CV.

I want to know the kind of jobs/profiles which will complement my post-mba job. Currently , I am having the offer of Technical Recruiter, content writer and business development executive. I am interested in MBA in Finance/operation. So considering that what would be right profile for me.

Seeking genuine suggestions/opinions from seniors, veterans, stalwarts. Please help me out. I am in dire need of it.


Ignorance is sheer bliss!(FMS 2014-2016)

I have 89% in ICSE, 63% IN UP Board, 69% Btech ( Petrochemical engg) from central govt. college . I scored a 95+ in CAT in my first attempt. I have a two year gap (pilot training course which I didn't complete). I have got admission in DSM DTU . looking at my profile do you think I will have issues getting a placement after my MBA or do you think I have a chance at better institutes next year with a better cat score. I am a fresher.

Studying for CAT and CMAT will take a lot of your time as both these exams are quite competitive. However, if you want to be selected in premier colleges like Welingkar Institute of Management, you will need to have a comprehensive profile. In case you've had some prior experience, add it in your form when you apply. If you don't, I think you should at least get a part time job to include in your resume. It will give you a higher niche.
