Hey! Does anyone have an idea about what kind of a profile the Admissions Committee looks at when giving a Tution Waiver. Is there some trend?

@Tanytan No typical expectation.... the Admits are ranked...say 1 to 770!  (so it would be same parameters which are used to give you ADMIT)

If you think you could be in top 100 of Class of 2016... you'll probably get a scholarship!

Can you please share your analysis on this regard..

Since we have over 600 students graduated from this program over past 10years, let us try to understand the value this PGPX program had on their careers ...(no answers such as "it is the value you make out of the program", it is not only vague but also as an experienced professionals we need data driven facts). I am trying to help all of us who have similar questions like me make a cautious and calculated decision... as none of us want to be in that bottom X% who find it difficult to get placed after the program after investing huge sum and sacrifices from family front...

1. the program value, industry view,

2. if people who were not placed or did not take part in the campus placement process were so confident about their prospects coming out of program or the program did not live up to the expectations to create incremental value

3. is there any specific trend that students from certain functional areas, like NON IT back ground had hard time finding jobs post graduation As results are with in a week, I am sure all of us are excited to receive an offer and be branded as a PGPX'er. Lets us all try to lead the way to make a well informed decision.

For 2013-14 placements as per the audit report..

Average salary is around 22L...

7 unplaced -

15  went on to look for jobs on their own and  did not partiicpate in campus recruitment  -

....So finally, only 52/85 placed on campus..ON a bright side 52 got placed, but also understanding the reality of why others backed out of placement services, and reasons for those 7 not placed and is there any bias among the recruiters to seek candidates from Premium IIT/NIT's during placement season...THIS analysis will greatly help all aspirants in making a call when offers are made....CURRENT/PAST PGPX'ers please chime in.....

Yes you are right! This place guarantees a 760. I took their coaching and scored a 750 after 4 months of preparation. I am from Bangalore. I gave my GMAT last month. I am writing my apps now. I highly recommend this place.

 Hey, I had done my MBA from S P Jain School of global management and the 'tri-city' model is the feature which sets it apart from rest of the management colleges. We all are aware of globalization has impacted each and every one of us and how we all will be dysfunctional without it at this day and age. This college provides you to understand the 'global culture.' I can tell you with my experience that studying in different cities is not just exciting but it also is a great learning experience. You get to study in three most dynamic cities of the world= Dubai, Singapore and Sydney! Imagine, in Dubai you will get to learn about the Sheikh Business culture, in Singapore you get to know about the Chinese business techniques and the Western business culture in Sydney. And the most important part, your batch mates would be with you all the time!

Hi Sanjay @thekingcobra , Your profile is definately decent enough to apply for ISB I request you to introspect yourselves and find what do you want to do Post MBA Lastly, Do not forget about the GMAT score , which plays one of the key role in the process Score as high as possible. Target being 700+ Good Luck

SANJAY MOHAPATRA @thekingcobra

Thanks a lot RAM @YRAO .... My question is that will I be able to get a decent shot considering I do no have excellent acads. Will my Startup business experience leverage for my acads? What should be my steps of improvement apart from a 700+ GMAT which I am obviously aiming for..


Ok , This is my piece of advice Sanjay 1. Your acads need not be excellent for you to get an admit (considering you have a sound idea why you need an MBA ); All your scores reveal you are an above average student However , to be on a safer side we have a chance to showcase our academic capability via GMAT 2 . Your Startup in Agro Services definately differntiates you from your Peer group . Again , It is you who can decide , what must be done to improve your profile. It completely depends on your Post MBA goals and how you connect the Dots on your Daily activities in support of your Dream

Yes @SargamG , application deadline has been extended to 10th november

@amit11289 2

I was looking for dual degree program in SCM but was unable to find one. This course came up recently on my feed. Unfortunately for me, I have already schedule my GMAT for 14th November keeping in line with dates for other colleges in India and abroad. Probably I would not be able to apply PGPX this year. But I would suggest and request you to please align application dates with other colleges. This helps student like me in applying for right course. For eg, in India ISB is having last date for application on 30th November whereas in US last date for 2nd round is 5th January. (If possible please revise application deadlines for 2016 or atleast allow student to update GMAT score till 30 November keeping in line with colleges like ISB, S.P.Jain which considers GMAT as selection process)

Hey, I came across this awesome resource which have cool memory tricks for remembering difficult to remember meaning of words. Website is I am sure this will be helpful for other students like me who are preparing for GRE exam.

Few examples from website :

artifice: => clever use of tricks

mnemonic  : divide it like: --art(ART)+fice(SOUNDS LIKE FISH)--fishermans only know art of catching fish,they use some clever techniques like giving them bait, and  catch offering bait to fishes,a trick commonly used by fisherman's.

Also, this word sounds like artificial fish which is nothing but a trick.

#CR10 Sunflowers growing in pots were placed, with their roots submerged, in the pond contaminated with radioactive elements. The sunflowers kept growing; in the process, they absorbed radioactive elements. Within twelve days, 85 percent of the radioactive elements were removed from the water, which is no less than can be accomplished with the much more expensive conventional filtration techniques. Scientists therefore propose using sunflowers for decontamination wherever there are radioactively contaminated ponds.
Which of the following, if true, points to a limitation on the applicability of the proposed method of decontamination?

Hi Vishal,

The first step on your GMAT journey should be to take a diagnostic. No one can tell you which coaching or consultancy services you need unless they know where you are starting from!

You can download a full-length test from Sit down, take it, and report your score to get a much better answer to your question. Or, if time is an issue, you can start with a shorter diagnostic quiz, such as the one that starts the course on the prep4gmat app ( ). This will help you determine where you are now and what you need!
