How to Select the Best MBA College for CAT?
Candidates find it difficult to make a decision on which MBA institute they should opt for even after securing the higher percentile. Here are some pointers that applicants must go through and evaluate the institute before taking admission.
The institute should be approved and accredited with recognized bodies such as UGC, NIRF, AICTE, etc.
Many Institutes like JBIMS and FMS, where fees range between 2-4 lakhs are a much better option to go for than pursuing it from any IIM with fees of more than 20 lakhs.
Candidates must be vigilant while selecting the MBA colleges. Before applying, they must note the courses and programs offered by them. For instance, you want to do an MBA in Operations, and the institute doesn't have that. Therefore, it will be a waste to apply to that institute.
MBA Institutes and colleges with good placement records must be preferred by the applicants for admission.
Candidates must prefer colleges with facilities like libraries, innovation cells, wifi, hostel accommodation, etc. Also, it must possess highly qualified faculty which can help them shape their future career prospects.
