KNOW YOUR CAREER – “MBA”

Why should a person study Business Management?
Most students pursue an MBA for better placements and career opportunities. A Masters Degree in
Business Administration (MBA) helps you to garner the requisite employability standards, which in turn lead
to better job prospects & a higher pay. Some of the skills that should be possessed by all Business
professionals are:

• Communication Skills
• Goal setting Skills
• Decision Making Skills
• Self-Motivation, Self-Discipline and Time Management
• Teamwork, leadership and ability to motivate others
• Analytical skills
• Planning & Execution skills
• Creative thinking
• Cross-Cultural Exposure
• The ability to tackle difficult situations and to solve problems
• To be independent and manage one’s own time & work
• To think originally and creatively
• To argue one’s case with logic and not to be easily influenced by the views of others.

In the modern Business environment, standardization of processes and constant innovation are crucial
ingredients driving profit and growth. This quest for growth has spawned large-scale transnational
organizations which are complex and need people who can constantly monitor and mentor their progress.
The people manning some of the parts and the whole of these organizations need to be trained. This is
where the MBA degree fulfils its role, enabling students to learn this complex and competitive environment
and making them ready to lead and run these organizations.
Two year Full Time MBA: Final year students or Fresh Graduates can apply for this program.
However, it may be preferable for students with a reasonable amount of prior real-world work
experience and take classes during weekdays like other college students.
Part-time MBA programs normally hold classes on weekday evenings, after normal working hours, or
on weekends. Part-time programs normally last three years or more. The students in these programs
typically consist of working professionals, who take a light course load for a longer period of time until
the graduation requirements are met.
Distance learning MBA programs hold classes’ off-campus. These programs can be offered in a
number of different formats: correspondence courses by postal mail or email, non-interactive broadcast
video, pre-recorded video, live teleconference or videoconference, offline or online computer courses.
Many respectable schools offer these programs; however, so do many diploma mills. Potential students
should check the school's recognition before undertaking distance learning coursework.

HOW DO I GET THERE?

Eligibility Criteria
A second-class Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent, with minimum 50% marks (45% for SC / ST candidates) in
any faculty is the usual requirement for applying to any management institute. Candidates appearing for
their degree exams in the current academic year are also eligible to appear for these entrance tests.

Eligibility criteria for Management Institutes
• A bachelor’s Degree, with at least 50% marks or equivalent CGPA. [45% in case of the candidates
belonging to Scheduled Caste (SC) / Scheduled Tribe (ST) or persons with Disability (PWD) category].
• A Bachelor’s Degree or equivalent qualification obtained by the candidate must entail a minimum of
three years of education after completing higher secondary schooling (10+2) or equivalent.
• Candidates appearing for the final year bachelor’s degree / equivalent qualification examination and
those who have completed degree requirement and are awaiting results can also apply.

Selection Process
Given the large number of applicants (1, 20,000 students took CET 2009), the institutes eliminate students
at each stage to arrive at the final list of candidates.

Stage 1 – The test
Most of the B-schools entrance tests are generally paper-based and are conducted between November and
January. Some of the important tests in the Indian calendar are CAT, NMAT, SNAP, CET etc. The CET is
conducted in the third week of February every year and the scores of the test are accepted by more than
139+ institutes across the Maharashtra State.
The various B-schools entrance tests primarily assess 3 basic areas: MATHS, LOGIC & ENGLISH. Some
tests also assess the candidate’s awareness of political, social & business issues.

Stage 2 – Group Discussion / Essay / Extempore and the Personal Interview
All students who appear for the test, (stage1) are sent a call letter / intimation for the Group Discussion and
Personal Interview. Usually, the call letters are issued after the results of the written test are declared. The
GD-PI round is conducted in late May or early June between February and March in most of the institutes.

The purpose of Group Discussion (GD) and Personal Interview (PD) is to get to know the student and gauge
how well he/she matches the profile desired by the institute.

Almost all management institutes require students to complete a pre-interview form, either at the time of
calling them for a group discussion and interview, or even earlier. It is important to fill out this form seriously,
since it provides the interview panel with cues for asking further questions. (Remember to retain a copy of
the form that you have submitted to the institute for future references)

Some institutes include writing an essay as part of the selection process. The essay is used as a tool to test
written communication, clarity of thought, structure of presentation, content and presentation style-all of
which are key managerial skills.

Stage 3 – The final call for Admission
After having cleared the above two stages, the candidate receives that all-important Final Call Letter of
Selection.

VARIOUS EXAMINATIONS

CET – Common Entrance Test

The Common Written Test (CWT) was first conducted in 1964 for the first batch of students entering the newly-
opened Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, (University of Mumbai). JBIMS soon established itself
as an institution of repute and the consequent demand for management studies led to the establishment of other
Business Schools in Mumbai affiliated to University of Mumbai. The CET now in a new format, (the Common
Entrance Test) is a requirement not only for students seeking admission to the Institutes in Mumbai but also to other
colleges in Maharashtra.

Maharashtra CET holds the promise of a call from B-schools like JBIMS, Welingkar and K.J. Somaiya, let alone the
other 139+ schools in Maharashtra.

No doubt, these prestigious B-schools can get you a break with recruiters like Accenture, McKinsey & Co., Infosys,
TCS, TSMG, Deutsche Banks, Coca Cola, CitiGroup, Ernst & Young, AB Group, ICICI Bank and L & T to name a
few. With proposed average salary figures crossing Rs.10 lakh in case of JBIMS, Rs.6 lakh for Somaiya and Rs.3 to
Rs.4 lakh for some others; Maharashtra CET is the hot favorite of most MBA aspirants.

Eligibility:
Graduation with minimum 50% marks (45% in case of backward class candidates from Maharashtra State only) in
the final year of graduation or appeared for the final year of graduation of minimum 3 years duration in any discipline
recognised by the Association of Indian Universities.

The Common Entrance Test (CET) MAH-MBA/MMS-CET is required of students seeking admission to a two year
full time Master's degree in Management Studies (MMS) or the Master's degree in Business Administration
(MBA) in 139+ colleges affiliated to Universities and Departments of Management Studies in Maharashtra (10425
1seats). The question paper for CET is set in English only and is of 2 / hours duration consisting of 200 Multiple 2
Choice Objective type questions in the areas of Verbal Ability, Reading Comprehension, Quantitative Aptitude and
Logical/Abstract Reasoning.

Contents of the Test of Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension:
This is a test to see how well you know English language. In this test there will be passages with questions based on
their contents to test your comprehension. Your English language ability would be tested through questions on
grammar, vocabulary, sentence completion, synonyms, antonyms etc.

Contents of the Test of Quantitative Aptitude:
This test helps to know how fast and accurately you can work with numbers, perform numerical calculations,
understand various arithmetic problems involving ratio and proportion, percentage, etc. This test also helps to
measure your power of quantitative reasoning, interpretation of tables, common graphs and charts.

Contents of the Test of Logical/Abstract Reasoning:
This test measures how quickly and accurately you can think. This test may have questions based on figures and
diagrams and also questions on non-verbal reasoning.

The CET does not have negative marking.

The Head Quarter towns namely, Amravati, Aurangabad, Jalgaon, Kolhapur, Mumbai, Nagpur, Nanded, Pune
and SNDT Women's University, Mumbai, of the nine statutory Universities in the State of Maharashtra are
designated as centres for the CET. Each centre will have several venues depending upon the number of candidates
due to appear at that centre. A candidate applying for the CET would have the freedom to choose his/her centre but
shall not have freedom to choose the venue.

Candidates will be required to produce documents that state that they are Indian Nationals. An Indian Passport is
one such document.

CAT – Common Admission Test
The Common Admission Test (CAT) is an all-India test conducted by the Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) as
an entrance exam for the management programmes of its seven business schools. About 250,000 students took
CAT in 2008 for about 1500 seats in the IIMs. This is said to make the IIMs more selective than the Ivy League
Universities.
The test is multiple-choice based with negative-mark penalties for wrong answers, and traditionally comprises
three sections that span the domains of arithmetical problem solving, geometry, statistics, data interpretation,
logical reasoning, puzzles, and English language skills. It is held on the third Sunday of November each year.
The test duration was two hours prior to year 2006, but since 2006; it has been extended to two and a half hours.
The total number of questions has varied from 180 (prior to year 2000) to 150 (from 2001 to 2003) and has gradually
decreased to 75 (in 2006 and 2007). However, in 2008 the number of questions increased once again and became
90 (40 in Verbal Ability and 25 each in Quantitative Aptitude and Logical Reasoning and Data Interpretation). This
trend has seen the CAT evolve from a speed-based test to an exam that evaluates fundamental abilities of
candidates in the aforementioned areas.
The CAT is the first step for admission to the IIMs. After the test, by the second week of January next year, the IIMs
declare exam scores and put up a list of candidates who are eligible for the next stage of group discussion and an
individual interview. The scores are relative and are calculated on a percentile basis for individual sections as well
as for the total. Candidates invited for the next stage usually possess total scores that are in excess of 99 percentile
and, more importantly, also possess balanced high scores across all the individual sections.
On 1 May 2009, it was announced that from 2009 onwards, CAT would be a Computer Based Test. Prometric ETS
has been selected as the partner in conducting the test. This year CAT will be held on 15 November 2009 and about
300,000 students are expected to take the test making it the world's most competitive examination.
Test Pattern
Management tests in India tend to be elimination tests. For example, 2, 46,546 took the CAT in 2008. The institutes
decide on a cut-off for the written test, just high enough to cull out about 4500-5000 aspirants and from among them,
the institutes will finally select the 1800-1900 students they need. Let us look at the various aspects of preparation.
Subjects: After analyzing the test formats, you must have realized that subjects tested in every management
entrance test can be broadly classified into:
Mathematics, which includes questions on Problem Solving, Data Interpretation, Data Sufficiency and Logical
Reasoning
English, which includes questions on Verbal Ability, Verbal reasoning and Reading Comprehension.

The nomenclature used for these areas is different in each test. A comprehensive chart is given below:

Categories Categories
Problem Solving Verbal Ability
Quantitative Ability Verbal Communication
Quantitative Aptitude General English
Numerical Ability English Usage
Mathematics Data Interpretation English Reading Comprehension
Data Analysis Verbal Skills
Data Sufficiency Language Skills
Logical Reasoning Verbal Reasoning
Analytical Reasoning Reading Comprehension






(7) Prospectus - MBA We teach success A Division of Vidyasagar Learning Pvt.
General Awareness – This is another area that appears in some tests. The terminology used for the section varies
from test to test depending on the types of questions that feature in each. For example:

Institute Nomenclature
SNAP/NMAT/IIFT General Awareness
IRMA Social Issues
MAT General Knowledge

Descriptive Section – Some Tests may have, in addition to the objective part, descriptive areas such as an essay.
Negative Marks: Almost all Multiple Choice Question Tests (MCQs) penalize the students for incorrect
answers. This characteristic, unique to MCQ, helps to avoid outright guessing by the candidates. In this case,
the test is fair to those test-takers who really know the answers versus those who guess the answers correctly.
Negative marks ensure that the student more often than not knows the real answers to the questions. This way
the test-setter can check if the student is really answering the question or is gambling. If the MCQ test does not
carry negative marks, it shows clearly that it does not follow the global standards of test setting.

Accuracy: By creating the “negative marks” concept, the test is clearly harping on knowledge and accuracy.
Therefore, it is important that the student knows the answers to the questions. Most Indian students are used to
studying only those portions of the subject in which they are good. However, these tests are very clear on
ascertaining whether the student is competent or casual.

Speed: Speed is a major factor while answering all questions in the given time. If the number of questions in the
test is more and the duration is short, it suggests that the test setter is seeking fundamental understanding. If
the number of question is less compared to the duration of test, it is clear that the test is meant to assess not
only the fundamentals but has gone a step further and actually checks the application of the fundamentals. The
stCAT of the 21 century, as compared to the CAT of nineties, has changed from just checking fundamentals to
querying the students on applications. CAT 2008 had 90 questions to be solved in 150 minutes; which meant
100 seconds (1.6 minute) to solve each question. Whereas earlier, the CAT use to comprise 150-180 question
with a duration of 120 minutes; which meant 40 seconds to answer a question. Although the time available per
question has increased, the test taking skills have now titled in favour of applying your knowledge rather than
more knowledge of concepts.

No fixed Structure: Although you have been given the test structures of all the important tests in the MBA
calendar, the tests may always bring in another factor to throw you off balance. This is especially true since the
areas tested and the subjects are same and cannot change. So the test-setter alters other parameters like
duration of the test, quantum of negative marks, breaking up areas into different sections or suddenly combining
them into one, altering the weightage of subjects or areas or topics and changing the level of difficulty of the
questions. Very often the CAT comes up with ingenious ways to unsettle students who have pre-set notions and
fixed expectations about the structure of the test. The two prime requirements to crack the entrance tests are:
a) Knowledge of the fundamentals of each subject.
b) A consciously cultivated ability to think on one’s feet.
Both are absolutely indispensable to become a successful manager.
