My GD/PI

8th may :PGDM Retail

I reached the campus @ 12.30 . took a rickshaw , but it was walkable distance .
then we got down at the entrance . it was a mighty campus. SIMSR was right at the end . we reached & were led to a waiting room . From there we proceeded to huge classroom where a ppt presentation was setup , A small vdo abt the college and later QnA session with the faculty followed.
Then we were given our topics
1)Information overload : india is spammer no 1 country (something similar)
2)POwer options : do we conduct optimal utilization of our power resources.(somthing similar)

Then we were called out in groups for GD ,
14 people it was bound to be a fish market , A caslet was given on how SNS were harmful as well as benefited us so in the end we had to discuss whether Social networking was beneficial or harmful :grin:

Went well the 90 sec was where i utilised the most ,cld cum in a few times

Then we went in to verify documents ( had a huge goof up there )

PI was really vague ..cant make anything out of it coz they dint grill me at all ,they really didnt like me i suppose : it was over in abt 5/7 mins.There was a Man n lady(she looked really young)
INTR: tell me abt ur self
ME : i fumbled there itself coz i thgt they were reading my Profl sheet so i stopped midway :oops:
Then a few Qs regarding
* retail fdi ,
*how do malls earn their income ,
*askd abt my grad subjects :biggrin:
*What exactly in retail.(tld wntd to a consultant ..):grin:

and bamm it was over it took me some minutes to collect myself that it was over so soon

I think the key was to remain calm ,whenever they probe you on some topic capitalize that n keep expressing your views .

Atb to others ,
Results : rejected,, !

Hi,
I had my GDPI today at SIMSR, Mumbai.

First, they will show you a presentation of SIMSR, Dual Degree, Student Exchange etc. Some info about PGDM(FS) viz its a trimester course from this year etc.

Then, you have to write an essay of about 300 words in 15 mins. There will be 2 options- Mine were
a)Can India host a shopping festival like Dubai?
b)Something about Television industry.(can't remember)

The GD / case study was there. Everyone has to give something like an extempore and then normal GD starts for 10 mins.

Finally , the wait for your PI. This takes time. After an hour my turn came. Seemed to be good. Questions ranged from oneself, to why Finance They even ask questions about latest happenings / ministers in the Cabinet.

So now waiting for the results on 10th June.
ATB to the aspirants
