● Top Answer By Komal Chawla on 13 Sept 21

Ans. A lot of students are generally concerned as to how to score the cut-off for KJ Somaiya.

Ques. What should I choose between Sydenham PGDBM and KJ Somaiya MMS?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 08 Sept 21

Ans. Having known some students of both these colleges, I can say that both the colleges are really good in terms of infrastructure, culture, and faculties. There are of course some differences too and for that let me share with you a few details. KJ Somaiya has better infrastructure and the campus is located at the heart of the city. SIMSREE doesn't have such a big infrastructure. SIMSREE has a better ROI than KJ Somaiya.  Placement usually depends on your profile and how you perform in your management education & certainly performance in interviews. Professors, peers both are good in both colleges.  At SIMSREE, the finance course is much better as there are several guest lecturers visiting from JBIMS. Both SIMSREE and KJ Somaiya’s program in MMS is Mumbai University affiliated. Its degree is acceptable for several government jobs as well. Categories MMS at SIMSREE MMS at KJ Somaiya Course Fee 1.36 lakh 3.24 lakh Highest CTC 20 LPA - Average CTC 12 LPA 8-9 LPA Recruiting Companies American Express, Barclays, ITC, KPMG, etc. Amazon, HUL, Deutsche Bank, Wipro, etc. It must be noted that PGDBM is not offered at SIMSREE rather the institute also offers MMS in affiliation with Mumbai University. Also, while choosing between MMS at Sydenham and KJ Somaiya, it is suggested that you talk to alumni of both colleges, which would definitely give you a clear idea. Read more

Ques. I have an interview scheduled at KJ Somaiya. Can anybody help me on what things to prepare in detail?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 06 Sept 21

Ans. As one of my friends also has gone through the same situation, I might be able to provide you with some tips that could be useful to you. Expect nothing out of the ordinary that will catch you off guard.  The interview process is straightforward and very conventional.  There's no need to be anxious if you have good reasons for what you've written on your CV and SOP.  Be meticulous with your SOP and CV, as most of the questions to be raised would be sourced from what’s written in your CV and SOP.  Remember, your desire to do an MBA should be convenient to the panel and they must know exactly why you want to get an MBA degree. In most cases, case-based GD is offered, therefore XAT decision-making questions can be useful during preparation. If you have any prior work experience, you should expect some questions from that section as well. Hence be prepared in that way to walk through this interview round.Read more

Ques. How difficult is it to get into the KJ Somaiya MBA program with average academics but with a good entrance exam score?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 06 Sept 21

Ans. A good entrance score can open a plethora of doors for you and boost your chances of getting into a prestigious university. It should be emphasized, however, that your previous academic performance is also considered while considering your candidacy. The MBA admissions process at K J Somaiya Institute of Management is a straightforward procedure. Appearing for any of the entrance exams (CAT, XAT, NMAT, or CMAT)  After this, you will be shortlisted for a Group Discussion and Personal interview round. In light of the Covid scenario, management has decided to conduct Case Analysis and Personal Interviews rather than a Group Discussion. Following the announcement of the Merit List, you must fill out an online form with your program preferences. Finally, based on their choices, merit positions, and seat availability, the shortlisted candidates will be offered the program of their choice. The following table shows the weightage of each component while preparing the merit list:  Particulars Weightage Qualifying Exam 35% Personal Interview 25% Group Discussion/ Case Analysis 15% Past Academic Records 10% Achievements 10% Work Experience 5% K J Somaiya Institute of Management follows certain selection factors, including your complete profile and achievements rather than focusing solely on a few specific scores. If you have aced your Case analysis and Personal interview, and you have an otherwise stellar resume, a minor setback shouldn’t derail your progress.  You have the same chance as everyone else if you can compensate for a weakness in one area with strength in another.Read more
