    Hi Seniors,
    I have two questions..
    1. Does the MFC and MBE have seperate GD/PI or it wiil be the same ??
    2. Can u throw some light on placements offered(Max Min. and Avg packages)
    Thanks in advance !!
    It is simple formality dude, if you don't have work ex. you just need to leave it blank. Apart from that, here at MBE obviously there is no explicit weight age to this, but we lot many with them in batch...
    So, it is obvious that it helps to gain score in interview but we have large chunk of f...
    this is a mandatory requirement as far as the form is concerned as it was the criteria that the faculty members decided
    moreover if its not imp then y to worry for freshers u can leave it balnk and be happy
    thanks alot for asking your query first mate
    well answering your first question engineers are very much eligible for the course .considering that the onus is towards analytics and economics the engineers are natural choice for their good analytical abilities.Infact in our batch and our seniors...
    Hiii.. I read the criteria of selection.
    I could not understand why in the form the institute is asking for work experience, if it does not have any weightage.
    Well Manisha , as far as the companies visiting campus for recruitment purposes are concerned , we manage to attract a large variety of companies - from all sectors be it FMCG'S ,Manufacturing giants , Banking Corporations , Consultancy firms for both Summer Internships and for Final Placements ....

    Yes, engineers are eligible.
    No other discrimination is done. A very large portion of our batch is made up of engineers.
    They do way more than merely sustain. Most of them thrive here.

    Thanks for opening the thread. Here go my queries :-
    Can you shed some light on the kind of companies that visit MBE for Final and Summer Placements and elaborate on the profiles offered by them?
    Also I've heard that batches of both, DFS and MBE comprise of mainly Commerce stream stu...
    Are engineers eligible for MBE as in the previous posts it was mention (10+2+3) ?
    Apart from that 2.5% weightage to other degrees.....is there any discrimination done with engineers ?
    One personal ques too..... Can engineer sustain in that course ?
    For those of you who are skeptical enough to consider MBE as their career option .Then look at the placement stats and the overall ROI that this course offers
    and above all the DU tag is the enough in itself
