Can my poor academic become a problem in getting a consulting job in campus placement at XLRI? And does HR and BM get same chance for a consulting job or are there any difference?

This is about all the knowledge i have abt consulting n with some of friends exp in B schools. Broadly there are 3 consulting types. 1. Strategic consultant (MBB type) Here acads are all they are after if you want the top 3 firms. They probably have acad % cutoffs. 2. IT Consulting: TCS, Wipro and Infosys are best here. These afaik would prefer a CS background (coding isnt required) and go easy on acads. They are bulk hirers so sometimes lower package. 3. Accounting Consultants: More finance oriented and may focus on the finance subjects you took in the Bschool and how u performed in there. The acad cutoffs are there for some but normally lower that the 1st category. KPMG, Deloitte, E&Y and PwC are the big 4 here ti be looked for. Other tech companies like Amazon, Flipkart, OYO etc may offer some roles which have different names but in the core have work that mostly consultants do. These dont go crazy on acads and mostly on ur work in the B school.

Can you guys (eco graduates) share your interview experience? Like what kind of questions pertaining to economics were asked by the panel and how much of it were you able to answer. Thanks!

https://m.facebook.com/1731163793841361/posts/2326518060972595/ But they don't ask you many "what" questions, they frequently ask "why" questions.

 Want to learn Python
What should I do exactly in that which will be relevant in MBA.
This is the first time I will be learning a computer language in detail so help accordingly.
If there is any specific course, kindly share.

Can anyone share the probable date for XL results? I believe the interviews are over, hence, all there is left is the compilation of the same.

Can someone explain why the new campus in Delhi won't affect XLRI's overall placements? ISB ended up creating a parasite when it opened up the Mohali campus and centralized the placement process. Does XLRI plan to keep placements from both campuses separate ?

So basically everyone agrees that whenever they start a new campus it'll affect their placements  😂

it is actually a choice for the college whether to go for centralized placement process or not. Its like choosing between whether to do good for the students or keep thier brand name.

Do people convert XLRI with very poor academic? Say (5/5/5) or (5/6/7) or (6/6/6)

@achyut1989 I have 56% in my graduation, so does that mean I won't get a call even if I perform well in XAT and even if I do get a call I won't be able to convert it?
