IIM Calcutta Official Thread for PGPEX Class of 2016 (PGPEX 2015-16)

Will they communicate over call or send mail? Also is there any waiting list similar to PGP batch?

I saw in the FAQ that they don't communicate to them who don't make it. In such case isn't it tough to know if I got the chance or not?

IIM B – EPGP 7 Aspirants, Class of 2015-16 – EPGP (One Year Full-Time Residential Course)

Hi All, We are the current batch of IIMB EPGP (6th Batch) and we would want to make use of this thread to answer any ...

Based on the inputs I have received from people who have already been interviewed, I have compiled a list of general questions that are being asked. I will be regularly updating this post with more questions I receive as inputs so book mark this post so that you can return for more:

General Icebreakers:

1. Can you tell me something about yourself?

2. Please walk me through your profile.

3. We have gone through all that you have put in to your application. Beyond this is there anything that you would like to tell us to start this off?

4. If you are given a minute to describe yourself what would you have to say?

5. Let's get straight to the point... Why MBA?, Why Now? And Why from IIM B?


The first serious Question (Why MBA?):

1. So you would like to become a XXX after your MBA. Tell us what stands between you and your goal besides the MBA.

2. Your Goal of becoming a XXX does not warrant an investment of 35 L. Why do you think you need an MBA?

3. From what you are doing now to your dream job as an XXX looks like a hell of a transmission. What makes you think an MBA from IIM B will help you make this transition?

4. What qualifies you today to aspire for your dream job after the MBA?

5. When did you first start thinking of doing an MBA? What took you so long?

6. You seem to be doing so well for yourself in your current job. Why do you want to do an MBA?


7. In terms of years, how many will you save if you move towards your Goal with an MBA?


The Meaty middle (Engineering Dissonance in your mind):

1. What if I say that I do not agree with you about your requirement for an MBA at this juncture of your life?

2. Why cannot you try for a job of a XXX now?

3. Have you tried getting to your Goal without this MBA? What is coming in your way?

4. Do you enjoy your job? (after you say yes) Then why are you quitting?

5. What has stopped you from doing an MBA till now?

The Questions that will help you score (Work profile related questions - besides the ones which are very specific):

1. Tell us a little more about your current role?


2. What are the challenges your company is facing?


3. If you were given a free hand in running your company for a few days, what would be your agenda for change?


4. I recently read about XXX (your company) in the papers. What is the inside story? (Was asked to an HUL candidate about the pesticides found in Tea sold by HUL)


5. XXX (your company) has been know to take a stance on issues related to YYY (certain issue) why have they become silent all of a sudden? (Was asked to a candidate from Essar about their tiff with Greenpeace)


Difficult to tackle:

1. Have you applied to other schools as well?

Aditya Kumar Roy @adityaluckyroy

Hey Swati, I would like to ask you Rotman seems to be like the best MBA offerings from Canada, which goes with the saying given the high quality of the program and Class profile. But from an Indian perspective, does it seems a good decision based on ROI and Job Profile to end up spending 5 million + INR in canada. Waiting for your expert advise. Please evaluate and compare your advise keeping in mind Asian MBA programs (China, ISB, HK, & Singapore) based on ROI and Job Profile post study.

Hi Guys,

I received an e-mail from "admission_nc", stating that they have shortlisted my profile from GMASS.

Actually I haven't selected IIM L as a course option while writing GMAT so i am bit nervous whether colleges directly connected with students like this or not.

Please guide me with your views.

I am into a hardcore technical role of research. Would like to groom myself with skills required for a Sr mgt role by getting into PGPX. Based on the 2014 placement report, I am already earning about 40% higher than the median salary offered last year in India. Would it really be a wise decision to go for PGPX? Is their a better alternative?

Kumar Gaurav @kumargauravjam 46

Well, you have not shared enough info to draw any conclusions. But, if salary hike is the only criteria then MBA may not do much good. If good management education is the requirement then PGPX is the best in India. You can also aim at HWS or INSEAD; however, salary hike from a high base may not be guaranteed there as well. Look at it this way - Without any prior management/leadership experience, companies are unlikely to hire you at sr mgt roles. You may have to start at mid/low level and expect to prove yourself faster to earn higher salaries and sr roles subsequently. 

Hi,

I have secured an admit to the 2013 MBA program at CEIBS. Wanted to connect to more people from Delhi who intend to start this year at CEIBS. Also could you help me with the student loan options available for Indian students apart from Credila? Also wanted to know the approximate expenses one looks at apart from tuition. @CEIBSadmissions

Hey, Shalin Agarwal, Seems like it's your MBA program at CEIBS has almost completed a year. Can you brief us about your experience on Quality of Study and Faculty, Quality of Peer mates, and was it a right decision to be at CEIBS? Technically speaking, CEIBS offers one of the highest ROI, but seems like very soon students start to end up in Hong Kong or India.....! Please reply at the soonest.
