I was a Computer Sc Engineer before my MBA. Most of your batchmates will be engineers. Absolutely nothing to worry about.
There will be a couple of subjects, like Accounting and maybe some parts of Finance, where CAs will be naturally at home more than engineers. But you can easily catch up in a week or two.
Like I said, I've found that being a fresher was actually advantageous for placements. Ultimately depends on the kind of job you want, but investment banks prefer freshers. Consulting firms prefer people who've done well in acads throughout. General Management roles probably prefer people with work-ex.
In my view, it is easier when you're a fresher because you aren't limited by existing baggage. IT workex is absolutely useless, unless you re-join an IT firm after MBA.
Hey, congrats! Sorry for the delay, I had somehow missed that message.
There's no strict Dos and Don'ts man.. And it depends a lot on the campus as well. Ahd had its rituals, Indore will have something different.
Imp thing is to figure out early as to what you want to do after the 2 years. If you're looking for a top i-bank job or consult job, work towards that from Day 1. If you're looking for more of a work-life balance kinda job, try to achieve that in the campus itself I cannot stress how important it is to not lose yourself/your aims/what YOU want to do, when faced with the crazy peer pressure and rat race. Don't fall in that trap.
One thing will probably be true - More than the acads, the placements etc, the most important thing you'll gain from an IIM will be your peers and the amazing network that you'll build.
Yeah, I got in as a Fresher. Indore was a surreal interview for me. They just asked my details and CAT score and let me go home. My score was high enough to warranty converts from I, L, K.. Hence, can't really give useful tips for those interviews.
Not really. Becomes tougher IMO. You need to take time out from work to prepare etc.. As far as the insti is concerned, they'll always maintain a balance b/w fresher and work ex intake. If you prep well, chances are that you are in a smaller pool of 'well-prepared people'. Freshers are all well-prepared. Hence, it is upto you.
Well, I'd say you should take it.. I don't really know you - so if you're 100% confident of landing C or AB again, then ditch K. But otherwise, it is a very good insti to study at. And pretty similar to Indore in terms of placements. Maybe even better.
No, I'm an IIMA grad, '09 batch. Indore and Kozhikode are both good instis, I wouldnt pass up a final call from there, in case of an ABC reject. And being a fresher is often advantageous during placements.
Revel's is a piece of crap. If you are into death metal do watch out for a band called Derelict.! Sure! Message me on facebook whenever you plan to come! Haha Cisco! Nice! What's your elective? planning on a masters in engg or mba?
