Dear seniors,
We know the min (5 yrs) & max (10 yrs) work exp is the eligibility.
But does apprentice training will count in work exp. I'm 2003 graduate. I did apprentice training in April 2004 - Mar'05 and since Mar'05 to till date i'm worked with cement and automotive manufacturing industry. so what should be my work exp? shall my total work exp will include apprentice training of 1 yr or it will exclude because while applying to new job, recruiters doesn't count apprentice training as work exp. please reply?

What you told is right and i want all to make informed decision based on this comments. If one looks for Big Names and Fat salary packeges, it true to say that time has not yet come for this course.(its Hard to say that).
If one is selecting this course for learning purpose, i will say its a brave decision. Course needs such fellows, for its future to become a fancy course offering big packages and Big names in resume. But, one should be able to take decision based on correct information, thats where this forum will help.

dear all aspirants..
its really nice that one of the students brought true picture in public domain..
nw comes the comparison part..
aspiratns should understand first that its a program to boost manufacturing sector.. therefore it has aegis of GOI in collaboration with JICA, NMCC, DoPT, etc...
and this program is based on MIT LGO program which is again globally acclaimed..
I hv got through some other good one year programs in India and even HEC France and choosing VLM....
I m not here to just looking for a extraordinary high package or something close..
m here to give value addition to my present work-ex (m a procurement consultant into oil&gas; sector).. and to do something more worthy post MBA from IIM Calcutta..!!

Hi guys!!!

Even I'm planning for my MBA from B-Schools.

Just want to share my experience in terms of education loan.

My experience with other nationalize banks were not good as it includes quite a bit of delays in process and service.

One of my colleague suggested Credila Financial Services Pvt Ltd (HDFC Ltd Co). After I contacted them, I understood they have some special products for good ranked colleges/universities where they can provide loans upto Rs.10-20 lacs without security, upto 10-12 yrs tenure and attractive roi.

Best thing I liked was they are not taking any PF while processing the file. The timeline for processing is around 5-7 working days.

They have centralised team who works on such kind of special products. Let me know if any one requires the contact details of them as such.

Hope this helps!!!
