If you are a finance guy - CA/ICWA with real (hand-on and large value) work ex. in investment banking, fund management, raising funds and managing treasury, you can expect some organizations to look at your profile. Banks/financial institutions have not looked at PGPX in earlier batches probably because the above experience didn't exist in the batch. In any case, if you come from such a background, why would you do PGPX??!! If You Will You Can

The topic of Essay 2 is :Describe an event that has influenced your life and demonstrated leadership qualities. (3000 characters )

My doubts are as follows:

1. How can an event demonstrate leadership qualities?

2. An event which influences one's life shapes one'e value systems.

3. Only when values are in place, can one demonstrate leadership qualities in any other event.

These two aspects are totally different.

How can you club two things??

Mahatma Gandhi was thrown out of train --> This experienced shaped his future journey.

Mahatma took the decision to withdraw Non-Cooperation movement after Chauri-Chaura --> This is leadership.

Hi Guys,

Hope you all must in the final stage of the application. I am sceptical about the length of the the section under the current work profile

1. Roles and responsibilities in your current job

2. Achivement in the current job.

I have 2 main doubts:

1. How long should be each essay ?

2. I joined my current job only 10 months back and significant work experience is refelected from my previous work exp. How do I manage the situation as I dont have much achievement in the current job?

Can any current student clarify this issue.

Thanks and Regards,

Basu

Hi Everyone,

I am calling out to the IIMA-PGPX community - a prospective applicant or current student or alumni of IIMA-PGPX - to connect with anybody belonging to real estate/ construction background!
The Class of 2012 placement brochure did not have anyone from the above background.

Can anybody help?

Hi..are the essays required to be submitted after getting to know if we are shortlisted? I reach somewhere that at the initial stage it is just the application (and not the essays which need to be submitted).

Is international experience a crucial factor? Is it something IIM A actively looks for? I suppose there would be candidates in roles where it onsite prospect is limited.
