Ques. What are the chances of getting into XLRI/SPJIMR if I have 1.5 years of work experience that's not relevant to the MBA specialisation?
● Top Answer By Admin on 22 Jun 21
Ans.I have a friend who recently got admission to MDI Gurgaon. Through the conversations with him, I have gathered a lot of insights about the institute. So, I can guide you fairly with the query.
A majority of students in MDI Gurgaon do not have any relevant work experience. Look at the table below for batch profile:
Most of the students are freshers and have work experience between 1-2 years. The average work experience of the 2020 batch is 24 months.
Having a work experience of 1.5 years will not give you any additional points. Even the recruiters club the candidates with work experience of fewer than two years and the freshers. A relevant work experience in your field of specialization can boost your profile. But you stand an equal chance like any other candidate.Read more
Ques. Which is the best MBA college in Mumbai among: JBIMS, SPJIMR and NMIMS? Which college among these have highest ranking?
● Top Answer By Bhawna Vedwal on 17 May 21
Ans.Among the above three institutes, JBIMS is the best choice, considering the factors of ranking, placement, and quality of the institute. The table below gives a brief level of comparison among the institutes.
Total Fees (MBA)

Rs. 17.5 Lakhs
Rs. 20.8 Lakhs

Rs. 38.57 LPA
CAT - 95 percentile
MH CET - 95.37 percentile
CAT - 92 percentile
XAT - 9.5 percentile
NMAT - Score-200
Overall, JBIMS is considered to be the best, followed by SPJIMR. NMIMS comes somewhat far from these two in terms of several factors.
JBIMS is comparable to institutes like IIM A, B, C, L, XLRI, FMS, etc, which are said to be in the crème de la crème category.
There are different types of references for these institutes when specific specializations are considered. They are as follows:
JBIMS > SPJIMR > NMIMS (Finance)
SPJIMR > JBIMS > NMIMS (Marketing)
JBIMS = SPJIMR > NMIMS (Operations)
In marketing, SPJIMR and JBIMS are almost the same in terms of opportunities and facilities provided by the institutes.
Therefore, a clear order of preference is stated above, in general, and according to specializations too.Read more
