  21. Hi,
    I dropped out from my graduation 7 years back and working full-time since then. Last year, I have registered for a grad, which will complete in another 2 years. In the first year, I got good scores. I have 6+ years of Sales/Marketing experience in IT.
    I am planning to pursue MBA after the graduation and have started working on CAT preparation. My question is, Will my dropout cost me, even if I get good scores in my present Grad and GMAT?
    Please help me
    Rajkiran

    ReplyDelete
  22. Dear Rajkiran,

    To some extent it matters but I believe its still manageable. Below are few points worth mentioning:
    1.During interview You need to justify with proper reasoning why did you drop out from graduation.
    That should be logical and should not show that you lacked determination to study.
    2. If your 10th & 12th scores are good that would surely help you
    3. Similarly your graduation score should help you as well.
    4.The best thing is you have 6+ years of solid Sales/Marketing experience in IT, you should highlight this properly.
    5. CAT and GMAT are two separate exams. GMAT score will have no impact on CAT score.
    6. You being a dropout would not impact your CAT score
    7. As mentioned in point-1, during personal interview you need to justify you being a dropout in a proper way.

    Below link could help in understanding the shortlisting process of IIMs based on your 10th, 12th, graduation marks and on work exp.:
    IIMA Shortlisting Criteria 2012-14

    Feel free to ask any more questions...

      IIMs will not give any consideration to any health problem. But I must say your marks are not bad at all, you can easily get into top IIMs if you score 99+ with consistent scores across sections. Kindly refer to below guidelines for CAT preparation:
      Recommended Guidelines for CAT Preparation
      In short start with self preparation, identify your weaknesses and work on weaknesses to improve them.

  49. Hi everyone... Which is the best MBA (HR or FINANCE or MARKETING or etc...) for an B.Tech. IT?

    ReplyDelete
  50. Dear Anonymous,

    Scope is good for all the 3 specialization. Now if you want to know what matches best with B.Tech in IT then defiantly it would be MBA in IT. Opting for a specialization depends mostly on people interest & personality and also somewhat on their current profile. In case you want to get out of IT domain below are the guideline based on which you can take a call:
    1. Marketing is good for people who are outgoing in nature and good at convincing others
    2. Finance good for those who are good in interpretation...and have good mathematical aptitude and have passion for economics
    3. IT for those who want to go ahead in their IT career at much higher pace
    4. HR for those who are good at people management...and organizing things.
