How to join a good MBA program?

MBA has become most vaunted degree for students coming from diverse academic backgrounds and even for IITians with work experience .Choosing a good programme is one of the important decisions for a student, which has far reaching implications for his or her learning and career.

The student needs to zero in on the tier I, II, III B-schools and their criteria for admissions. One should not limit choice for only Tier I b-schools, as the entry barriers are very high and hence should have plan B for admissions. Getting coaching from premier coaching institutes is almost mandatory.

**Ask a Question to an Admission Director**

The key factors to be considered for choosing B-school are intellectual capital of the B-school, industry interface, pedagogy, faculty, placement record and infrastructure and fees. Some of the institutions offer specialized programmes such as in Health, Telecom, Energy, BFSI, Retail, Construction and Pharma etc. which will enable you to become sought after specialist.

Student needs to consider such options only, when he /she is passionate about the area, has high degree of aptitude and able to synergize with the his /her background. Most of the MBA programs have dual specialization which increases the skill base and offer bandwidth for the students. Choose a B-school which has a healthy geographic and academic diversity among students.

The student should check with online resources, friends and alumni before taking a decision. The student should sincerely prepare for getting admission and even post admission, continue to work diligently and need not be perturbed by the hype for salaries etc. Initially learning in the B-school, positive attitude, being well-grounded and well groomed is all that really matters.

All the best,
