● 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.

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
