Got this through mail today. Hope it helps..........

Dear Prospective Student,



Welingkar introduces a broad based selection system for its PGDBA / PGPe-Biz
programs.100% reservation for pure talent!!!



As a premier B-School, We focus on selecting great talent that shows
potential. And the question we ask while we do so is: what is your
potential to be a manager - not how much you have scored in your written
test!

A completely new selection system

Considering the above, we are introducing a completely new selection system.
A broad based selection system which focuses on strong academic record, an
innovative mindset, leadership abilities, and a quest for excellence. We
accept students based on a comprehensive review of their application and
written test scores instead of minimum performance standards. The focus of
this selection is on:

Academic Potential

Personality Traits

Leadership Qualities

Creative Skills

Work Experience preferred

Extra Curricular activities

Interests and accomplishments

How does this new system work?

A sum total of all these qualities are what we look for in a student wanting
to pursue a PGDBA / PGPe-Biz program. Hence a student with a high written
test score doesn't guarantee a short listing as the student may be found
lacking on other areas on which the Institute lays emphasis. Alternately
students with a low written test may be shortlised if they are academic
performers / have exhibited leadership qualities / performed exceptionally
well on areas of the Institute's focus

So while this process begins with the short listing of candidates from
Common Entrance Tests which we accept i.e CAT, XAT, MAT (Dec03*, Feb04,
May04 * Dec03 candidates must submit their original mark sheet if selected),
ATMA (Feb04), there is no Cut Off score as we believe that the written test
alone cannot be the sole deciding factor in the selection process. To test
emotive aspects of leadership, decision making skills, ability to handle
stress, team orientation, group dynamics to name a few, we have added Group
Discussions and Interviews as a part of our initial round of selection. All
students who have applied to Welingkar will be called for a Group Discussion
and Interview round. Post this; a shortlist of candidates will be declared
who will then need to go through a final round of Interviews for selection
to the programs.

The Panelists

The Selection panelists for this process are practicing Industry
professionals, so in true sense the Selection Process is for the industry
and by the industry!. The group Discussions and Interviews will be conducted
in Mid May04 and the final round of selection by Mid June04.The course will
commence by Mid July 04.

The process leaves little chance for good talent to be left behind. Make
sure you are in. You have time till 25th April'04!

hey me too recieved dis thru e-mail.
How did dey got my e-mail address????????

i've heard dat welingkar is quite expensive.
Is dat true????

NFI dude........but I think its worth a shot for freshers who are not great at taking these kind of standardized tests.

Rgds,

Arun

PS: Welingker according to me is great for the fact that it leverages a few things :

a) Proximity to the business capital Mumbai
b) Alumni-base
c) Industry-interface

Recently Ive heard they have ramped up their infrastructure and the new director is very dynamic.

    According to this table: Highest Salary - 3.5 pa
    Lowest Salary - 1.2 pa
    Welingkar is an upcoming insittute and am pretty sure they'll do better this year. The institute already offers exchange programmes to Japan, Ghana and Kenya. Heard from a student that from this academic year onwards they're starting exchange programmes/internships to 2 European countries.
hey Folks,

I received the same mail too , wonder how , coz' i didnt even apply to the institute !!!

Anyway, the mail sounds very refreshing as for the selection criteria , but the point that i wud like to raise is : How gud a reputation does Welingkar enjoy?


Now getting a mail without even applying..thats weird. Shri had u taken the ATMA exam??
As far as the reputation of the PG program is concerned i am not too sure..every1 advices that its better to join the MMS program offered by these institutes.

Right Will ,weird it is, i did not apply to the institute , nor did i take ATMA . Anyway, m sure with the link in the previous post, the reputation and placement issue for Welingkar becomes pretty clear.

GudLuck :biggrin:

Hi
Wud rank it in d same category. A friend has been getting calls from their counsellor asking him to appear for d interview; it sums up their desperation.

Keep smiling 😃 :)

Hi!
I would rate welingkar way above the other institutes mentioned. It has very good infrastructure, industry interface and is located in commercial capital of India.

a friend of mine did mba from there 2 years back her starting was 1.25lac(an average student) after a year and a threat to leave it was jacked to 2.2lac.

The point I am making is quality of placement is imp. if you are good money will follow

Jharna

hi...this is a query from my friend who resides in delhi..unfortunately he has not received any calls so far....this was his 3rd try for mba ....and he really wants to do it......he wanted some info on the following colleges...

1. infinity business school delhi--last date of applying 7th marc
2. ****-delhi
3.Welingkar

he has a 68 percentile in cat and 92 in xat.....what r his chances in these institutes and wat r ur views abt these colleges.also he has given mat on 6th feb...so that he can apply for jbims but again prob there is the gd/pi and final results fot that would be much later and no jbims at that stage means no mba....kindly solve his problem

his %ile in xat is decent ask him to apply to liba and bim immedialty. havent heard abt infinity, **** is crap, and welingkar is pretty good. based on mat score ask him to apply to alliance and christ. word of advice, none of these coll's are really gr8 but since ur friend is desperate abt an mba am suggesting these names.
However bim, liba, welingkar are pretty decent. and ya under cet sydenham.
**** - delhi


what on earth is this place???:wow: :wow: if it cant be mentioned here then can sumone PM me? Me intrigued

cheers

no offence but i had written ****...wonder how it converted to ****..i had no such intentions..anyways i give full form here...indian institute of planning and management
