In the recent years, General Knowledge & Awareness has become an integral part of most B-School entrance examinations. In the years to come, too, several schools are considering including GK as a criterion for selection - after all it is something every Manager is expected to have.
Some of the top institutes/examinations that have a GK component in their exams are:
->SNAP (for institutes under the Symbiosis University - SIBM Pune, SCMHRD, SIIB, SIBM Bangalore, SCIT, SIOM, SIMC, SITM, SSBM )
-> IIFT (Indian Institute of Foreign Trade - New Delhi & Kolkata - International MBA programs)
-> IRMA (Institute of Rural Management, Anand - Rural Management programs)
-> TISS (Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai - several Masters programs in Social Management/Entrepreneurship)
-> MICA (Mudra Institute of Communications & Advertising, Ahmedabad - Communications Management)
-> CMAT (Common Management Admissions Test - For institutes under the AICTE. Several states have scrapped their regional MBA entrance tests in favor CMAT. Hence institutes like SIMSREE, JBIMS, etc will be accepting CMAT)
Kindly use this thread for quoting current affairs & important updates, static GK that you might know, uploading GK material that you might want to share (kindly be aware of copyright violations), etc.
The knowledge that you will gain here will be of great use to you during your Group Discussions & Personal Interview stages as well.
