Why Study MBA? 

Master of Business Administration or MBA is one of the most popular post-graduate programmes in India and abroad. The two-year programme is a gateway to a plethora of job opportunities in the corporate world. MBA is a popular course as students from any background including Science, Commerce and Humanities can pursue it. A regular MBA or Post-Graduation Diploma in Management (PGDM) is generally a two-year course divided into four or six semesters

No student pursues a course without a purpose. There may be numerous reasons for taking up a particular course. Before jumping into the job opportunities after MBA and career prospects, it is important to analyse and understand the purpose of pursuing an MBA course.

  • As per the latest scenario, many students prefer MBA course to acquire the skills necessary to start a business/ start-up/ turn into an entrepreneur.
  • MBA gives a good career start and leads to a wide scope for career development and skills.
  • Experienced professionals take up MBA course to make a shift in career.
  • MBA course gives scope for innovative outlook.
  • MBA graduates will have the capability to network with the best in the market.
  • MBA degree offers a brand value to you.
  • MBA degree not only enhances professional growth but also personal growth.
  • MBA graduates have enough chances to work outside their native places so that they can gain enough exposure and understand the market conditions in different regions.

From the above points, it is quite evident that an MBA offers an excellent career path. However, MBA students must enhance their skills while pursuing the course. Some important skills such as Communication Skills, Language Proficiency etc. are mandatory to excel in the management field.

With this you need to make sure you choose a right academic partner. Few of the leading universities that offer great MBA are :

Indian Institute of Management

Great Lakes

Lovely Professional University

Symbiosis

Christ University

Faculty of Campus,Delhi

Doon School, Dehradun

I would suggest you to choose a university that caters your all round development and provides complete placement and internship assistance. Recently one of my student is placed in HDFC Bank and he completed his MBA from Lovely Professional University. I have heard a lot about LPU , LPU has also recently come up with their new program MBA in tie up with Talent Edge which assures placement and provides a perfect blend of classroom and industry based learning.

I hope this helps.

All the Best.!

CAT 2020 exam pattern has changed by the conducting authority - IIM Indore keeping in mind the COVID Outbreak. A lot of students are stressed out as to how will it all unfold. Few things like the number of questions in the paper for a 2-hour long exam are still uncertain. So, Managers adda has brought to you Mr. Ankit Jindal who is a 99.99%iler himself, to get some advice on how to tackle the changes.

Hello!

Being an Alumni of LPU, I would say LPU is the best option for MBA. I did my MBA from LPU and was one of those students who had multiple placement offers,through campus placements. Faculties at LPU are not just professors, but mentors to students.

The university is equipped with the latest technologies delivering the most effective methods of teaching in its spacious campus. LPU provides an environment where students are enlightened through the extensive array of learning methodologies. Highly qualified teaching staff combined with the best laboratories and modern technologies makes LPU the best place to pursue your degree.

Being an LPU Alumni, I can say that LPU has experienced faculties, well equipped labs, great infrastructure, excellent placements, complete training and placement assistance and lot more and that too at a very low fees and high scholarships.

One of the major reason of choosing LPU over Amity is it’s fee structure. LPU provides huge scholarship due to which learning at LPU is economical. Fees is a big concern in Amity. Also, now being an Alumni I would say why to pay more when you can get much better with less fees.

Salient Features of the programme at LPU are:

  • Internationally Accredited: Accredited by Accreditation Council for Business Schools and programme (ACBSP).
  • Contemporary Curriculum: Instil advanced knowledge about contemporary area in management such as Green Marketing
  • Industrial Tieups: Collaboration/Tie up with the companies like NSE, Safe Educate, ICICI Direct, IDFC, etc. To give students the opportunity for pursuing live projects and/or professional certifications like NCCMP, NCFM etc.
  • Workshops:Industry desired workshops on Digital Marketing, Business Analytics, Stock Market Operations, Life Skills, Creativity and Innovation, and Leadership to make students industry ready.
  • Specializations: The course offers specialisation offerings in Marketing, Finance, Human Resource, Information Technology, International Business, Financial Markets, Operations, Retail Management, Entrepreneurship, Hospital and Healthcare Management.
  • Entrepreneurship: Entrepreneurship projects are integral part of curriculum and help establish themselves as successful entrepreneurs.
  • Community Development Projects: Opportunity to work on community development project on social issues to cultivate social sensitivity and sense of responsibility.
  • Projects: Opportunity to work on business projects to enhance managerial skills. Professional Enhancement: In addition to core curricula, course offers subjects like communication, analytical and soft skills to enhance personality and employability.
  • Software Skills: Curriculum is equipped with 21st century digital technologies required for managing their specialised area.
  • Case Based Teaching: Usage of real life case studies to provide interactive teaching and learning methodology
  • Holistic Development: Participation in technical events, sports and cultural activities help in the holistic development of students.

I hope this helps you in choosing a wise option.

All the Best!

Selecting a good Business School at a reasonable cost, is very important. During this uncertain time, do not go to a high-cost B school. Rather focus on value delivered. The college should groom you well and fetch good placement. Some good B Schools would be: ASB or Ashoka School of Business Hyderabad, GIBS Bangalore, IISWBM Kolkata, RSB Chennai,Lovely Professional University etc.

I have completed MBA from Lovely Professional University and LPU is helping me grow professionally and personally with its career-oriented programs and support. 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. I would say ,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.

About Talent edge, 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).

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.Due to pandemic situation,Universities has started online classes for students on My class app,google meet etc.

Thank you!

 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). In this program candidate will have a pre-placement offer from a company. • Selection in this program will be based on the performance of the candidate in the interview. In addition to regular Interview, a candidate needs to appear for Psychometric Test too. However, eligibility is based on Interview which is to be conducted by 3 panellist (1 from Talent edge and 2 from LPU). After qualifying interview, candidate can take admission in this program. • Taking admission in this program ensures placement (LOI- letter of intent is given along with admission). • Talent edge program provides students with real-world industry experience. Through this program, students will be able to apply their expertise, leading-edge knowledge and tools to solving industry problems. • A special program structure is designed for MBA talent edge. In the first 2 terms students will study general courses of management. In 3rd term specialization of the candidate will start such as Marketing, HR, finance etc. *Candidate in this program can select only 1 specialization*. This specialization will be taught by industry practitioners. • In 2nd year (4th term) company official (from the company which has given pre-placement offer) will come to the university campus and give induction to the student for approximately 3 months. • After the company’s induction, student will go for an internship in the same company. There will be 9 months internship contrary to general MBA where there is only 45 days internship. Student will have more practical exposure in this program. • Student may get a package within 4L to 10L after final placement. • Student will get a certificate from talent edge at the end of MBA program. • In order to apply for this program, candidate will select MBA Talent Edge from university website and further he/she can apply for Interview and can do slot booking as it is so for regular MBA applicants. • After appearing and clearing Interview, an email will be sending to candidate to appear for Psychometric test and after appearing in the same candidate can proceed with admission. • There is no fee for second chance of Interview and Psychometric Test. • In case applicant is not able to qualify Talent Edge Interview in first as well as second chance, but if the candidate has passed the LPU panel, he/she will get option of other MBA Programmes. The same will be visible in student portal in case he is not able to qualify for MBA with Talent Edge but was able to Qualify for General and other specialised MBA s where Interview cut-off is low.
