    @faizykhan4727 Technically speaking if you qualify for CMAT that is good enough to get admission in ITM Bangalore. Mind that ITM Bangalore doesn't have MBA programme it is an autonomous AICTE approved business school which offers PGDM programme.

    If you require assistance about choosing a good business school in Bangalore, submit a counselling request we will guide you.Visit MBA Admissions guidance
  • @mba_query1: Narsee Monjee's Bangalore & Hyderabad campuses are new. Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) Mumbai is a top business school. There are colleges which offer University MBA as well as autonomous AICTE approved MBA courses.

    Send your details to MBA Admissions guidance, we will contact you!

    IIPM is a subject of controversy as the Institute doesn't have necessary approvals to run their courses. IIPM is not under UGC nor it is affiliated to AICTE. The credibility of their courses are a concern.

    3 .Want to pursue distance education in same, guide me in best possible way.

  • For distance education you go for MBA from any UGC recognized University. Try out in Symbiosis University Pune.
  • Hi Srikanth Sir,

    I did go through your advices and found it really helpful. I have a question for you as i am in a great dilemma. I have an experience of 5-6 years in international bpo's. I am looking for a good diploma/ degree from a good b school which can atleast provide me a good placement at a decent salary. I did my graduation from Delhi University in BA Pass with 39% marks. Can i appear for CAT or MAT and if i do, will i be eligible to do any diploma/degree courses in a good b school, which can further secure me a good job offer with a decent salary and help me secure my future. Thanks a bunch for all your help sir.

    God bless you.

    Unfortunate for you that your graduation percentage is quite low, most Business Schools in India ask for 50% marks in Graduation. 45% is enough for reserved category like SC / ST but 39% is way below that. As you have already worked for 5-6 Yrs look for better jobs in your field or in any field where you are confident to work. It is better than spending some X amount of money and wasting 1 or 2 years. Go ahead and explore careers in Operations Management, Business Development, HR, Team lead positions etc. For this Management & Leadership skills are required MBA / Degrees doesn't matter.

    All the best!

    For 45% and above in graduation, there is a way I can help to do a Full Time PGDM or MBA. Leave a Query https://www.careermitra.com/pages/mba-pgdm-guidance.html
  • I scored 49.5% in my graduation in economics hons. Want to pursue MBA. What should i do??
  • edited September 2017
    @Deeps: A min of 50% aggregate marks in Graduation is required to pursue a full time AICTE recognized course. In case if you have any reservations (OBC / SC / ST) 45% marks will do. Where would you like to do your MBA also matters. You have any particular college or preferred city?

  • Thanks a lot Shrikant, this is a perfect answer to clear my confusion regarding MBA and PGDM.

    I have completed my PGDBF from Manipal school of banking, and I am currently employed as an officer in Bank of Baroda. My query is. should I pursue MBA (distance from ICFAI) for my post graduation or PGD is good enough? would it make any impact on my resume? Is it equivalent? Or should I go for MCom or MA something...?
  • sir i am in my final year of btech and i want to do MBA.....
    plz provide me details about GBO Programme of Shree Ram College Of Commerse
    Is GBO programme is a mba or pgdm or diploma??
    And plz also tell me about college is good or not?
  • Hi Srikanth my % in graduation( Bcom Hons) is below 50 so can u please tell me what are the options available for me now.. Can i still do Mba from a good regular college..
  • @tejas1606: Be on your current job, plan to grow with in the current organization instead of leaving what you have. Having a distance MBA on your CV will not make such great impact.
  • edited September 2017
    @Gud: Yes you can do in a regular MBA college if you have any reservation like OBC / SC / ST. Some university MBA programmes ask for 50% aggregate in core subjects alone not overall.

    plz reply 
  • @RAVISH18: GBO from Shri Ram College of Commerce is a Post Graduate Diploma course, the course is affiliated to University of Delhi. The programme lays emphasis on Finance, Marketing or HR in a global perspective.

    There will be a written test followed by GD, PI as a selection criteria. Keep no doubts about the programme and college it is worth your time & money. Do keep in mind that if your looking for MBA, this course is not an MBA programme it is a PG Diploma.

    but srikanth sir i think PGDM and GBO programme both are diploma course, can u tell me difference about PGDM and GBO programme?
    and plz tell me one more thing, is GBO programme beneficial after b.tech or not?   
  • @srikant : I m not at all leaving my current job. I just wish to further my education profile.

    Now that i have done my PGDBF.. should i still go for MBA.. would it make a difference..

    or shud i go for MCOM/CFA or something like that...

  • @tejas1606: PGDBF will limit your career in one particular sector that is Banking & Finance; in future if you wish to change job it will be most likely be in Banking sector again. To have access to more jobs you can go for MBA, that surely adds value, you are talking about Distance MBA it will have less value as compared to full time MBA. Sure you do a distance MBA it will help you, as I said it will help you but it won't create new jobs for you.
  • @RAVISH 18: PGDM is terminology used by Business Schools which run AICTE approved management course, that is a common convention. GBO is also something like that but this course is run under affiliation to Delhi University, it is a course designed by Shri Ram College & Delhi University; it lays emphasis on global business scenarios.
  • There are a lot of college that provide PGDM. As Mr. Srikanth said,  PGDM courses are more Industry relevant as compared to MBA courses.
    Go for Institutes like Welingkar. It will thoroughly expose you to real-life situations. And on priority, decide which field you want to pursue your MBA in

  • Hi Srikanth,
