I did MBA from Lovely professional University,LPU is one of the best choices indeed. It provides for multiple industrial exposures,live projects,an updated curriculum rigor and technology along with very good placements and personality development.

During my post graduation I got 100% scholarship on the basis of achievements in sports and it continued till last semester of my MBA. I represented LPU in AIU level and won gold medal.

Lovely Professional University strongly believes in the fact that monetary constraints should not be an obstacle for a student to have access to quality education. So, the University extends Scholarship Scheme to students on various parameters. Scholarship can be availed in all the Programmes of the University, ranging from Diploma to Ph.D. Students have been awarded with scholarship worth Rs. 100+ crores in last year only.

Students get different scholarships as per their performances in the academic as well as in other activities.The scholarship is also available on the basis of:

· Due to current situation LPU has introduced COVID-19 FRONTLINE Scholarship scheme worth Rs 20 Crores, to honor the selfless contribution of the COVID-19 frontline warriors (I. e. Doctors, Nurses, Para-medical staff, Civic staff, Police personnel and many more) during the time of pandemic breakout through a special scholarship to their wards.

· Percentage in Qualifying Exam

 Scholarship on the basis of CAT/MAT/XAT/CMAT/NMAT · Percentage in Sports, Cultural, R&D, Co-curricular Activities (CCA), Social Services and National Bravery Award

· Special Scholarship for Toppers of Education Board

· Fee Concession for Defense, Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) personnel and their dependents.

· Scholarship for Orphan Applicants

· Scholarship for Person with Certain Disability

As per my knowledge,Whatever scholarships you are awarded at the time of admission,it will be continue till the last semester,But it can be cancelled in case of any serious misconduct or in disciplinary action committed by the student or poor academic performance.

For more information kindly visit Lovely Professional University websites or call on Tel: +91-1824-404404

Thank You!

Dear Samiksha, 


You are sure to get 35% scholarship on the fee, applicable for the full course duration.

Since you havenet mentioned your graduatio percentage in question, let me be clear, the cut off at LPU is 55% as against even IIMs which take over 50%. 


So, You need to have 55% in grduation and also clear the interview, which is being held online these days. 


Make sure to complete your process before October 10th, the scholarships wont be available after that.


Hope this helps

Hi, MBA does come in a lot of iterations and specialisations, these can be selected as per your interest. In coming times, the industry is going to see a sea change in its working, the pandemic has hit the corporate hard and many conventional work profiles will see a big change in work delivery and its technology. In my opinion, the future belongs to Marketing and Business Analytics and if there is a combination of both ! Hope this helps

 @samiksha1993   From where I see, the corporate is going to have  sea change in its working. The pandemic has hit the companies and their workflows hard. It has changed the wrld forever. There will be a paradigm shift in work delivery and its technology in most of the companies and so will be the changes in management grad's skills. I see that future belongs to MArketing and Business Analytics or a combination of both. Thats my opinion, trey to find a program where you can choose both the electives.

@samiksha1993

Every student aspires to get a degree from the best B-schools. And in India, there are also many colleges that can help in bridging the gap of transforming the students into professionals.

I would say ,The Business School of Lovely Professional University is accredited from (ACBSP) Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs from the USA ensuring quality education and industry experienced faculties, studying in LPU will get a degree accredited from a body of USA. LPU has recently Marked among Top 50 Best Management Institutes by NIRF ranking 2020. Also, LPU has won National Employability Award 2020.

I did MBA from Lovely Professional University,Honestly my experience at LPU was amazing,Pursue MBA from one of the best MBA college in Punjab as well as India that focuses on honing the instinctive talent and practical innovation of the students. Our program relies on industry- aesthetics and essential business skills to craft well-informed decision makers who can cope up in the challenging world-of-work.

Also, in my view, I think you should not worry about the placements. If you work hard in the course and learn as much as you can, any company visiting the campus would be happy to hire you. However, you must not neglect polishing your communication skills as well, because companies will check that in their interviews. LPU provides plenty of opportunities to its students to take part in events, competitions, fests in order to let them grow their personality and give them a chance to polish their skills.

There are plenty of career opportunities after MBA in different sectors of industries like Banking and Finance, Investment Banking, multinationals, foreign banks, public sector undertakings, in effect the whole corporate sector – offer bright opportunities to management graduates. The careers in management offers one of the best remuneration packages and perks everywhere. Many students are placed in reputed companies in different cities and some are placed in abroad too.more than 150 companies including ITC, Asian Paints, HDFC, Federal Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland, Moodys Analytics, WNS Global etc and so on recruiting MBA students on an yearly basis with highest package in MBA at 21 Lakh Per Annum and on a average package will be 4LPA TO 6 LPA with nearly 90 % placement rates. LPU keeps improving and increasing it placements packages year on year. Even the number of recruiters visiting the campus increase every year.

University prepares its students for placements through special inputs in the form of placement classes. Students are given a lot of on-job training as well as work on projects where they can earn also. MBA placements of the university are very good with students getting high packages.

With Quality Education, Placements in LPU is also amazing, with the top brand in the world coming for recruitment provides great opportunities to its students.

Some of the Placement opportunities in LPU :

  • More than 550 students hired on a single day by Cognizant, not once but TWICE that is more than 1000 students, which has set a record in the whole of North India.
  • LPU’s Business School’s Bachelors students recruited for ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND.
  • MBA students are getting placed at an average package of >4–6 LPA in more than 100 companies. More than 150+ companies have already visited 2019 MBA batch of MBA and nearly all of them are already placed and many of them already on OJT(on the job training).

The package really depends on what you can show to the recruiters that, how much you are worth or deserved. There were some students who cracked the placement and got offered 21 LPA, while many failed to do so.

On an average the MBA students of LPU is offered and placed in the starting package of 4.5 TO 6 LPA(Fixed salary) while there may be cases of students getting less than that or more than that.

Hope this answer will help you!

@samiksha1993

Choosing where to study, and to which university you should go, is one of the most important decisions you will make.I was part of BBA-MBA course batch 2011–2016. So lets say like this our college life started when this University was quite young as it started in 2006. LPU is helping me grow professionally and personally with its career-oriented programs and support.

The Business School of LPU is accredited from (ACBSP) Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs from the USA ensuring quality education and industry experienced faculties, studying in LPU will get a degree accredited from a body of USA.LPU has recently Marked among Top 50 Best Management Institutes by NIRF ranking 2020. Also, LPU has won National Employability Award 2020.

As a general rule for placements, a lot more will depend upon your own hard work, communication & presentation skills and overall preparation. This would be true for any university you enroll in.

The placements are exemplary. Many of my known alumni are placed in very good and reputed companies in different cities and some are placed abroad also Industrial exposure is offered through in-house training programs. 100% Placements Of Eligible Students In MBA With Highest Offered Package Of Rs 21 LPA.The university organize many external workshops for their students. The package provided by on-campus jobs is also more than satisfactory. University environment is very much decent with technical security. They also organize regular interaction one-on-one sessions with experts where one can discuss their views and share their doubts and problems.

Lots of scholarships opportunities for deserving students, which will make pursuing an MBA at a very affordable cost.

They give you a very good amount of training before you go into campus placements. Try not to miss those classes they will help you in getting better placements, after all, all we need is a decent place with good exposure. I shouldn't even have to explain this one.

  • Highest Package offered - 22 LPA
  • Impeccable placement records with more than 150 companies including ITC, Asian Paints, HDFC, Federal Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland, Moody’s Analytics, WNS Global etc and so on recruiting MBA students on an yearly basis with highest package in MBA at 21 Lakh Per Annum and on a average package will be 4LPA TO 6 LPA with nearly 90 % placement rates.
  • The placements on an average for all the streams of management including Marketing and Sales, Finance, Operations, and HR.
  • LPU keeps improving and increasing it placements packages year on year. Even the number of recruiters visiting the campus increase every year.

LPU continuously going better and better with its focus on developing future leaders, who could drive change, whether as an assets to some global corporate giants or as an entrepreneur who create jobs for many. A large chunk of Alumni, of the Mittal School of Business, Lovely Professional University, are successfully pursuing a global careers in countries like USA, UK, Canada, Australia, to suggest a few.

Choose wisely where your want to study as it will be a key factor in determining your future. It was my point of view, my experience that I shared. Research for other universities too and find out which one suits you the best. LPU will provide you a lot of opportunity for placement it just that you have to grab it and go for it.

I hope this helps you.

 Amongst Chandigarh University, Chitkara and LPU, which one is good for doing a MBA?

@samiksha1993

If you are not choosing LPU for MBA, make sure you are into IIMs or the deemed government business schools of India. Moreover, I would suggest you go through NIRF rankings 2020 for B-Schools and plan accordingly. LPU has been ranked 50th. Also, spending more money on colleges has nothing to do with the quality of education. It has to do with the quality of their infrastructure (for private colleges). 

University have Collaboration/Tie up with the companies like NSE, Safe Educate, ICICI Direct, HDFC, etc. to give students the opportunity for pursuing live projects and/or professional certifications like NCCMP, NCFM etc. Students get opportunity to Industry desired workshops on Digital Marketing, Business Analytics, Stock Market Operations, Life Skills, Creativity and Innovation, and Leadership to make students industry ready.

The university also gives us the opportunity to get real-life exposure through various training programs and an internship, which is mandatory for all. Professors go for value-based education which is something we as professionals would require in our career. Guest lectures by experts and some really successful people are arranged by our department to widen our scope of learning.

Most of faculty members are from IIM or from elite B- Schools (India/Abroad. They have decade of experience. Faculty was really helping. Even they helped her after regular university hours for her projects.

No doubt LPU adopts new technologies faster than others they update their curriculum after each semester by taking feedback from the students and also to meet the latest standards.

If you are concerned about placements. There are plenty of career opportunities after MBA in different sectors of industries like Banking and Finance, Investment Banking, multinationals, foreign banks, public sector undertakings, in effect the whole corporate sector – offer bright opportunities to management graduates. The careers in management offers one of the best remuneration packages and perks everywhere. Many students are placed in reputed companies in different cities and some are placed in abroad too.Top brands like Amazon, Trident, KPMG, Hindustan Unilever Ltd. L'Oreal India, Federal Bank, Colgate Palmolive, HDFC Bank, Elgi Equipments, Reliance Industries, ITC Ltd., Tata AIG, Kent Healthcare Systems Ltd., MRF Ltd., etc. visitung campus for placements.

LPU continuously going better and better with its focus on developing future leaders, who could drive change, whether as an assets to some global corporate giants or as an entrepreneur who create jobs for many. A large chunk of Alumni, of the Mittal School of Business, Lovely Professional University, are successfully pursuing a global careers in countries like USA, UK, Canada, Australia, to suggest a few.

LPU offers Study Abroad Programme that allows the students to experience the international study culture well under the framework of a different educational system abroad. Under this programme, the students study a part of the programme in a university(partner university) in a different country and earn the academic credits from that university. This programme is of a short duration ranging from 6 months to a year in different countries.

A new program in tie-up with Talent Edge has been started.This program is having pre-placement offer at the time of Admission (provided student clears the interview).

I Hope this answer will help you take right decision!

As we know that every student aspires to get a degree from the best B-schools. And in India, there are also many colleges that can help in bridging the gap of transforming the students into professionals. Lovely Professional University is quite eminent for the MBA. You can do MBA in different streams like Financial markets, International Business, Tourism and hospitality, Banking and insurance, E-Commerce, Fintect, Business Analytics, etc. So you can choose any of the above-revealed streams according to your area of interest.

I myself had gone through the same phase a couple of years back. I did MBA from Lovely Professional University and my experience at LPU was amazing,I have learnt a a lot,LPU is helping me grow professionally and personally with its career-oriented programs and support.

The Eligibility for admission at LPU in MBA is is 55% in Graduation and LPUNEST. LPUNEST comprises of a test and interview. But due to COVID-19, LPU has relaxed the eligibility criteria and for admission in 2020 batch, you just have to qualify LPUNEST-Interview. For getting admission in MBA,you need to fulfill the eligibility criteria and qualify the interview as well.

MBA Interview is neither much easier nor harder. You should know the basics of graduation.If you are a hard-worker then not to worry at all. LPU always welcomes hard-working students. One more important thing, you can find the syllabus of LPU NEST. Exam dates, exam pattern, and moreover sample questions on the LPU website if you want to appear in LPUNEST Written test.There will be two rounds of interview.

You will be evaluated during the interview on the following parameters.

  • Communication Skills
    • Fluency of Speech
    • Grammatically Correct
    • Capacity to Elaborate
    • Clarity of Thought
  • Career Orientation, Aspirations & Goals
    • Clarity of Goals
    • Confidence
    • Leadership & Initiative
  • General awareness-General awareness means knowledge about the present happenings. It only focuses on the routine happenings of the news around the world it has nothing to do with the historic events.

All the best!

I Hope this answer will help you!
