Hi Kunal! normally, In India , the exprience counted is upto 31st march (end of financial year). So, check your eligibility on that basis. For example, IIMA require 7 years, IIML 6 years and XLRI requires 5 years of experience. However, ISB require only 2 years of experience as minimum. So, plan accordingly.
regards,

For this year, telephonic interviews were also conducted. So, that shouldnt be an impediment to apply to this course.

Dear aspirants, I have more data to share. In the current batch (GMP'08-09) GMAT score varries between 640 to 770. It is heatening to note that 2 candidates are having 770 GMAT score. However, GMAT score is not the only criteion for selection. your academics, work experience and Interview along with your GMAT score determine the selection.

Further, seats have also been increased from 60 to 110+, because of success of program.
GOOD LUCK.

Hi Aspirants! here is the official report on GMP placement 2008.
GMP Placements 2008

XLRI General Management Program (GMP), one year full time management program, has concluded a successful season of placements for its 2008 batch. The batch has been offered plum roles - like AVP -Finance, Director, Associate Director, AGM Operations, Chief Manager, Managing consultant, Strategic Account Manager, Client Solutions manager, etc - clearly highlighting the potential of the participants to don middle and senior management roles. Also placements helped 30% of the batch change sectors where students had prior work experience. One participant opted out of the process to start his own entrepreneurial venture.


The process attracted 54 companies, as opposed to 23 last year, and made 101 offers to 53 participating students. The average salary of individual offers stood at INR 17.8 lakhs (an increase of close to 20% from previous year), while the highest domestic offer was INR 33.8 lakhs and the average of international offers was USD 130,000 (an increase of 30%). Sponsored candidates have also got elevated roles and middle/senior management responsibilities from their parent companies


The batch witnessed a good mix of participating companies from diverse sectors such as Banking, Energy, IT, Consulting, Manufacturing, Steel, Real Estate and Telecom. Arcelor Mittal, Reliance ADAG, Jindal Steel, DLF, Tata Communications, Cairns Energy, L&T; were some of the major recruiters of the batch. Few of the Consulting companies that participated are Mckinsey, Accenture, IBM S&C;, ICRA Management Consulting (IMACs), TCS Global Consulting, KSA Technopak. Axis bank, SBI Capital, ICRA, UBS were some of the BFSI companies that turned up for recruitment. IT/ITES majors like HP, Cognizant, Satyam, Wipro, Inautix, Hexaware, and Genpact participated.


"With just two years of organized placement support from the Institute, the one year General Management Programme of XLRI has firmly established itself as a source of quality talent for recruiters. There were a number of recruiters who personally expressed their extreme satisfaction with the quality of the participants. These positive comments reinforce our belief that we are doing things right as far as our one year programme goes." quoted Prof. Uday Damodaran, Chairperson of the Placements at XLRI.


The placement season was held during 2nd week of February at Mumbai followed by rolling placements in March at Jamshedpur. The process was aimed at offering flexibility to the students and recruiters to find the right fit, as the participants were potential middle and senior management candidates with experience ranging from 5.5 to 15 years, with the average pegged at 7.5 years. Students also visited Australia as part of the international immersion introduced in the curriculum from this year. From the next batch, the immersion module is expected to include various options for students, with the tie-ups that XLRI has with major universities across the globe. XLRI has plans to increase the student intake from the next batch, due to high response from industry.

XLRI to double GMP intake for 2008-09
Jamshedpur, May 12 Premier B-school XLRI is set to double its intake of candidates for the one-year general management programme (GMP) course, from around 53 last year to over 100, for the 2008-09 academic session.
"XLRI is also planning to expand international exposure for the students through tieups with major universities across the globe," said Father Abraham, director XLRI, speaking at the graduation ceremony for the 2007-08 batch.
According to associate dean (GMP & defence programmes) Pranabesh Ray, the B-school had selected only 61 out of the 1,552 valid applications it had received for its 2007-08 GMP batch.
XLRI has been increasingly attracting managerial talent for its GMP course from across the country. The ratio of the number of applicants spurted 152% for the 2007-08 session.
The B-school has enriched its GMP course recently by reducing number of core courses to 14 by introducing long-duration courses for an integrated coverage of the subject. In addition, the number of optional courses has been increased from 12 to 16.
Besides focusing on basics as well as advanced concepts of management, the course also provides international exposure in the form of internship and projects.
XLRI's 53-student batch of 2007-08 session received 101 job offers from 54 Companies, as against 23 last year, in completion of their course. The average salary of the batch for global and domestic assignments increased by 20 to 30% at $1,30,000 and Rs 17.8 lakh, respectively.

Hi abcIndia,

ThanQ for a such an informative thread and taking time to answer the queries.

I am looking forward to attend the 1year program at XLRI starting 2009. I am giving my GMAT in Aug and 2009 May, I should be completing 5 year work experience.

1) Is the work experience sufficient?
2) Is only GMAT required or do i need to take another exam?

Thanks
Rav

1) Is the work experience sufficient?

I dont think it will be a problem if your profile is good ..In our batch there are many people with 5 years exp. I have seen people with 10+ years getting a rejection and people with just 5 years exp get thru. It all depends on your overall profile and the value you can add to the batch.

2) Is only GMAT required or do i need to take another exam?

GMAT is sufficient.

Per the eligiblity criterian this year, it was 5 yrs as on 31 March 2008. In your case it might be 2 month less than 5 as on 31 march unless the criterian is changed next year.
In any case, you could drop the adcom a mail for your specific case.

Hi Vikram! For XLRI you need to have 5 years experience on 31st March of application year. So, you have to wait for 2 years if you are interested in XLRI. In the same way IIMA requires 7 years work ex as minimum requirement. However, you may try ISB (2 years minimum requirement) or SP Jain.

With Best Wishes.
