@abir217nandi  The website still reads 'Rajiv' Gandhi Indian Institute of Management, so the answer is No

hi puys.. need your suggestion on this.  i gave my cat 2014 and it was a very disappointing performance with just 81 percentile. I got calls from the new IIM's and my results are yet to come. currently i m working in IT and have 22 months of work ex. off late my work is getting really hectic and i work for almost 12 hrs everyday. I am planning to quit for my job and prepare for cat 2015. is this a bad move ? if so wat are the problems that i would face other than me screwing up cat ? or should i go for the last 6 IIM's if at all i get one ?  my profile Xth - 83 , XIIth - 91 , B.E - 7.1 , work ex - 22 months as of now , not much in extra curricular , NC-OBC. 

need your help on this puys.. really confused

Dont quit the job.. CAT is a big gamble.. you might even end up scoring lesser than what you did this time!!!! Joining NGO won't do you much good as far as handling the topic of quitting the job is concerned during the interviews IMO.

then wat is the best option in my scenario i am sure it will be highly difficult to study after 12 hrs of work.the worst part is i even work on weekends can u suggest any alternatives ?

Should it be SIIB or SIBM?

Guys please help!!

Two questions. 

1. I need some advise on b school..As in which one to select...i have calls from SIIB and SIBM B...interest area is finance but in SIIB they give MBA in IB with specialisation in finance whereas Bangalore gives core specialisations are there...which one to opt for...keeping in mind i want to add further certifications like CFA etc to my with MBA in IB With CFA would make sense or should i go with SIBM B finance.

2. Second question is inevitable that i have to join this year itself ...but I still want have that deep down yearning to have a degree from IIMs. So will it be advisable to go for 2nd MBA. I mean another MBA i.e executive MBA after 4-5 experience post MBA from IIM's or ISB or any global B school ...can I do that ? Do they take admits for 2nd MBA?

Oxy Moron @naumi 357

1. If your interest lies in finance, I would advise you to go for a general degree (SIBM-B) as it would give access to more opportunities when compared to a niche course (SIIB)

2. Doing your first MBA with a second MBA in mind is always a risk. Moreover, doing both of them from India is something which is difficult to justify and unheard of (there are always exceptions as usual). If you are serious about a second MBA,in my view, its better to target global B-schools like Kellog, INSEAD,IMD and maybe ISB.

Sam V @Samvathsar 45

@shri001 It is really difficult to predict with such a small sample bro. Given that IIM ABC results were out before 17/18th and many ST candidates did not attend. I can only assume that; of those who did attend, some have not got confirmed calls, but are in WL of ABC and some might prefer L over FMS. So the WL may move even up to 30 or not move at all, I am just assuming that it may follow the 2012 pattern, where ST list moved by 13 (I think so). P.S: Please don't get disappointed with my response, and keep your fingers crossed till 25th May.

What are the scopes other than the academics/research in MBA colleges and corporate sector? By any chance, can a person who's done FPM teach in degree colleges, after completing the FPM? As in, I am from Engg. background, and if i pursue FPM, will the engineering colleges consider me? Or is it only MBA ones?


Is there also a PhD in management? Which is better - FPM/PhD?

CAT 14: 99.93 || Rejects: B (no call) , A, C. Pretty much sums up the year for me. 
Saurabh Raina @Dante_ftw1 1,542

FMS : Marketing

IIM L : Rest of the MBA specializations, GM/Consulting much better than FMS

FMS : Cost of MBA (including stay at PG) : 4-6 lakh

IIM L : Cost of MBA 10~lakh

FMS : Best ROI, location advantage, good initial placements, small batch size (You will realize it soon how important this can be).

IIM L : Decent ROI, IIM brand name helps in future, good initial placements, better campus life (hostel life), much better infrastructure.

So you decide.

the sum of the digits of a four digit number, consisting of non-zero digits, is a perfect square. The number formed by the first two digits and the number formed by the last two digits are perfect squares. If the number itself is a perfect square, then the difference between the second and the third digits of the number is?

Coriander Son @MakeINdharavi 83

calculating squares is quite easy with this trick......For any two digit number (say AB) between 25 and 75, the square will be CDEF where EF are the last two digits of (50-AB)^2 and CD is equal to AB-25 {or AB-25+the hundredth place digit of (50-AB)^2 if any}..........For any two digit number (say AB) between 75 and 100, the square will be CDEF where EF are the last digits of (100-AB)^2  and CD is equal to 2*AB-100 {or 2*AB-100+the hundredth place digit of (100-AB)^2 if any}

Sumi Jain @smilewithsumi 151

i simply made pairs of 2 digit square numbers that add up to give a square. was left with 4 options(1636,1681,2536,2581) in around 40 sec. had to do some multiplications to eliminate the other 3( almost 30-40 secs more). Thats why i asked for a shortcut

1) The management is very poor in handling the course and the students . They don't have any resources to run a b- school.

2)They hardly provide 25 hours on each subject , means they keep constant pressure on teacher to complete the course within this time.They even ask teachers to delete the topic if it requires more time.

3) In prospectus they write something else but in class they do something else.Everything is fake in BSE institute.At the time of admission tall promises are made but believe me everything is fake.

4)As far as the placement are concern the avg package is 2.5lac and that to in sales profile  means you have to sell insurance product etc . and that to is not sure that will they be able to provide you with that or not  because they were are not able to provide students for internship so what can you expect for the placement.Not a single student was place by the institute, all the students have got placement by their personal references.

5)The value of BSE institute is very poor in the market and the companies which come for placement ask for NSE certifications in the interview for placement.

6)And by the way all the student have got selected who have fill the application form , in my class many student have not even utter a single word in group discussion but then also they got selected.

7) Even i was very excited to take admission because of the brand value of BSE but seriously now I regret a lot.

8) Earlier the institute was having a tie-up with IGNOU but due to bad quality of teaching they took back their affiliation ,after that they  became autonomous. Now they have come  with new scheme of the Chitkara university to fool the students. 

9) I will suggest you do a 1yr full time program from NSE or go for a normal MBA or PGDM in finance. The best would be CFA.

10) for any details mail me

Plz talk to the students first before taking the admission because BSE institute ltd don't refund the fee at any cost.
