Master of Business Administration (MBA) has emerged as a one of the major qualifications in the last 15-20 years. This is one qualification which employers are looking for, while recruiting people. The reason for importance of this qualification is that it is the one qualification which helps the students to have an all-round knowledge of the entire system of the things which are required to be succeeded in the Corporate World. A good MBA program helps you to have very good understanding of concepts of finance, marketing, HR, operations, economy, international business, international finance, cost management etc. it also help you to develop your communication skills, presentation skills, negotiation skills, leadership skills etc. In a nutshell it can be said that this program helps you to understand the entire gamut of the corporate world and enables you to be successful in key positions. A good MBA program can give a new dimension to your career and can help you to change your mindset. After completing this program you are definitely going to have an edge over others who have not done it. But before taking decision of joining this program there are so many things which you have to look into. First and foremost is the institution or college from where you are going to pursue this program. Friends let me tell you that there are hundreds of institutions/colleges in India which are imparting management educations, however very few of them are good quality institutions so you should be very selective while selecting an institution. There are various ways through which you can judge the quality of a B School, there are various ratings of top B schools which can be referred, such as ratings by, Economic times, CSR etc., you can also enquire about the placement record of the institution or you can also check with the students who are already pursuing program from the institute. Some of the top institutions of our country are IIMs, XLRI, ISB, XIMB, TISS, SPJIMR, FMS, Narsee Monji, Jamana Lal Bajaj, MDI, SIBM, IMT, Nirma, IIFT etc. These are among the top institutions of our country however there are many more. Pursuing MBA from a mediocre institution may not really help you as it may not have a good value in the market. There are various types of entrance tests for admission in MBA programs; most popular among all the tests are CAT, XAT, MAT, GMAT etc. The syllabus for all the tests are almost same however there is a huge difference in the difficulty levels of the tests, for example in CAT & XAT the difficulty level is very high whereas in MAT difficulty level is not that high. The higher you score in these tests the better chances you have to get admission in a top rated institution. After qualifying the first hurdle you will also have to appear in the interview and Group Discussion to get a final berth. The most important aspect which I would like to remind you again the choice of the college so take care of this aspect and avoid admission in an ordinary college as fees for pursuing this program is huge and later on if placement is not good than situation can be tough for you.
