Almost 2 lakh students attend the Common Admission Test (CAT) in India every year, hoping and praying to get into an admirable college to attain their MBA degree. But only 5000 or so students get into respectable colleges. And even fewer can reap the benefits of an MBA, such as better job opportunities and higher salaries.

Unfortunately, the current MBA syllabus is also theoretical and quite outdated in several colleges. As students lack the practical skills companies look for while hiring, it results in lower employment opportunities. Therefore,  the chances of a student succeeding thanks to an MBA degree depends on the curriculum followed by the college. That’s why MET‘s PDGM/ MBA degree gives its students an edge over other candidates.
