Beyond Rankings: 5 Aspects for Choosing Top B – School…

Most applicants to Business school, or any school for that matter, may have plan to apply for Top schools in their interested field of choice. And the only explanation for their plan is that these are the best business schools. While a particular school or program’s ranking is important, as that reputation will extend to you after earning a degree, ranking should not be t he only factor to consider when applying for an MBA. Think about scholarship options and your career goals too.
  1. Knowing your Post-Graduation goals well can help you choose the best business school to match these goals. If you aim to work in a particular organization or industry, many schools/programs are ‘feeders’ into these. You should find out the companies that usually recruit from the school you are applying to, and make a decision accordingly.
  2. If you see yourself living in a certain place in the future, earning your MBA from a school in that area, or closer to it can be helpful as alumni contacts and school reputation can often be more meaningful in certain localized areas.
  3. Depending on your career-goals, you may want to decide on a school based on whether they offer a full-time or part-time program. If you want to stay employed while you are in business-school, you need to look at schools offering part-time or evening classes.
  4. If you have to move your entire life to a completely different part of world just to be able to enrol in a high-ranking program, that can be a large process and could significantly impact your life as well of those dependent on you. While this may not be a problem for some, others may want to look at good schools nearer to their location, or at schools offering a program taught primarily online.
  5. How you plan to pay for your tuition is also a huge factor when choosing a B-school. Whether you pay for schooling out-of-pocket, or plan to apply for MBA scholarships, grants or loans, those costs have to be considered.
All of the above details have to be considered and properly researched, so that you can put together the best overall plan. GIBS, one of Top Business schools in Bangalore offers you a plethora of opportunities. You can find out more details about their program and tuition costs from their website.

HR internship at Stepping Stone Solutions – Kiran Eshwar from GIBS

About the Author: Kiran Eshwar, a student of Global Institute of Business Studies (GIBS), shares his enriching experience as an HR intern at Stepping Stone Solutions.

As a Talent Acquisition intern at Stepping Stone Solutions, I had an enthralling experience in learning the essentials of recruitment. The biggest takeaway from my internship is the lessons I’ve learnt, both as a recruiter and as a fresher joining the job for the first time.

I along with 20 of my friends attended the interview for this position in May. We had two rounds of selection starting with a group discussion (GD) and ending with a face-to-face interview with the HR head of Stepping Stone. We had a great time in the GD round because the topic we got was a very good one. We were asked to discuss “3 idiots” movie. 13 people were arguing that it was a good movie with a lot of life lessons to be learned from and a few were arguing against the movie. I was speaking on the usefulness of the movie. I believe, I registered an important point by saying that students have the right to choose their career. I was countered by one of my colleagues who questioned me about considering the career suggested by parents and relatives who wish for a student’s success. I kept my calm and conveyed that parents and relatives should make sure that the student actually likes the field and chooses a specific career only after researching about all the pros and cons. If they find that their child doesn’t have a real interest in that field or doesn’t have clear knowledge about it, they can intervene.

In the face-to-face interview, I met with one of the toughest stress interviews I have ever faced. It was the exact opposite of GD round which was easy. I was asked about why I chose MBA & HR and also why I jumped from technical background to management. I was also questioned about my previous small-scale business which I was running and why I quit that to join MBA. I kept my calm and answered all the questions. Finally, I had the offer letter in my hand!

At the first day of my work, I was trained to use TimesJobs and Naukri portals. I was also briefed about the clients they had from various industries. I was given few requirements straight away and was asked to work on them. I was perplexed. They had not given me any quality training but they wanted me to speak with people who had to 12-15 years of experience! I was dejected. I even thought that I had made a mistake by choosing such a small company which does not have standard procedures. I started making calls and stumbled a few times. Then, my HR head intervened. She taught me the most important lesson of recruitment. She told me to spend quality time on screening each profile, understanding the job description thoroughly, and doing the right search before making any calls.

If she had told this to me beforehand, I might not have stumbled but I would not have realized the importance of it too. I understood why they didn’t teach me that in the beginning itself, and so I started to approach my work with confidence. This went on for the first 2-3 weeks. I was given hands-on experience and I also got their support whenever I had a difficulty .This made me feel like an expert in 3 weeks’ time in recruiting. I started enjoying my work and thanked my stars for getting this opportunity. I worked for both IT and non-IT requirements and for both junior and senior level positions. I learnt how to speak with an experienced candidate and a fresher. I also had interview experience when I was allowed to take initial screening interviews for a few freshers. Also, I learnt the importance of maintaining relationships with both selected and unselected candidates because a recruiter doesn’t know when a previously unselected but a prospective candidate might become useful.

I successfully hired 5 people during my tenure as an intern, out of which three were for Stepping Stones and two were for other clients. I would like to suggest the future HR interns to choose a small company/startup which doesn’t have standard procedures but which lets you learn the art to become an expert much faster than the large sized companies. It is a proven fact that people starting their career with smaller companies get to learn more as they get hands-on experience straight away which further help them in their career growth.

When Is the Best Time to Get an MBA?

Getting an MBA involves significant investment in time and money. No wonder the business school application process is intense. It is therefore important to give a lot of thought before going into the process. You cannot take full advantage of the B-school experience without being prepared for it.
Getting an MBA, if you know what you are getting into, can be a life and career-changing move. These tips will help you decide whether you are ready for an MBA from a Top Institution like GIBS Business school.
Business school is not a place you go, to figure yourself out, or to get away from the working world for a bit. MBA programs at top business schools are fast-paced and to be able to fit in, and make the most of the time there, you need to have a plan. Knowing your post-MBA goals is important – where you want to be career-wise, as well as, in life. Do you want to work globally, start a business of your own or move into higher management positions within your current organization?
Top business schools want to know you have given a lot of thought to the prospect of getting an MBA, and will take the opportunity seriously. When you know how an MBA will help you to achieve your career goals, you’ll be ready to apply to B-school, and ready to ace your admissions essays and interview.
Talking to alumni of schools you want to apply to, gives a better understanding of how their lives and careers have changed post-MBA. Once you’ve done your research about the realities of getting an MBA, you’ll be ready to decide if applying to business school is the right choice for you. You’ll also be in a better position to defend your MBA aspirations.
When choosing the B-school that will be the best fit for you, take into consideration factors such as campus ambiance, Infrastructure, program length, alumni network & support, available courses and areas of concentration, teaching methodology & style and family support. Be realistic about what is important for you, and what all you are willing to compromise on. Sometimes even a highly ranked school may not be the right fit for you.
The final point before deciding whether you are ready for B-school, knows if you need to improve your candidacy before applying. Find out what the schools on your list are looking for in their candidates, and work towards improving your profile accordingly.

What kind of preparation makes an impact on CAT Exam…Test Taking Strategies…

Education Institutes which accept entrance exams are the Top Institutes in India, because the created exams are attempted to perfect their exams and to construct fair results with error-free scores of each individual. These exams are organized by various Educational Boards and Universities and the importance of test scores in the admission process varies from college to college; hence each college has their own approach.
Direction for CAT Preparation:
Only different actions will bring different results, hence getting into one of the IIMs or the other Top- B-Schools is a dream for most of the Management students, and GIBS is being known as Non IIM institute in the classified Top Institutions in India. Try these out dear students, good preparation always pay you off, so try having an appropriate idea about the exam pattern, syllabus & be prepared with the preferable books, and practice with relaxation mind.
Few Strategies to crack CAT Exams are as follows:
Students should be well known with the syllabus part such as English, Mathematics & Data Interpretation Comprehension, Logical reasoning & you have no option of skipping any topic here if you are serious about the CAT exam.
Analyze your knowledge and according to your convenient divide the topic with the proper time bound. Try to finish the chapter with the short time with short cuts well, which will help you to build the confidence with the speed and accuracy. Be beyond the studies this will keep you strong mentally and physically as well.
Hence, Rest yourself with no stress and attempt the exam as if you already know everything…!!!

Dual degree specialisation: Find the Point Of View of 2+2 program at GIBS…

Many of us discover as we grow up as students that we have affinity towards several subjects/fields that are sometimes related and more often than not, are strikingly different. After our graduation and sometimes fresh after our K-12 curriculum, we realize that so many options lie before us – pertaining to furthering our education. But there’s a hitch – we will have ‘bundled’ subjects to choose from, and these bundles may or may not be tailor made for us. Choosing one bundle would mean losing out one of our ‘other’ favourite subjects. But what if we got to choose our own ‘favourite’ subjects to study and make a combination out of them? This is what Dual Specializations are based on. Dual meaning ‘two’ allow us to study and earn diplomas or degrees or certifications in two areas at the same time.
When it comes to the few Business colleges offering dual specializations, through the experience they have garnered over the years, they have come up with most potent combinations – ones that will give their students the advantage of having strength and experience in many practical subjects. GIBS is one such Top B-school offering a Dual Degree with Dual Specialization in MBA and PGPM (Post Graduate Program in Management). Being one of the Top B-schools in India, they have a curriculum designed in such a way that students not only have the foundation of theory ingrained in them but also have practical exposure through various certificate programs.
