Hi pgpexclass2020,

Could you please give us a glimpse of the MBAEx class? What are the backgrounds of students? how classes are conducted? How is the placement scenario - are most of the students getting placed in their desired industries/companies?



The below links should give you a good idea:

Hello Sunilb,

You have a good profile. I suggest prepare a great application and essay.

Also, we have a webinar on Sat, 27th July 2019 at 11am IST which would cover the course pedagogy, admission process, eligibility criteria, current students profile, placement statistics etc. You can join the webinar to know more about the MBAEx program.

Registration link for webinar:

Hi sunilb

The international experience is a plus. ECA is not a big factor for IIMC (the NGO work helps, though the event organization carries limited value). Overall, if you can raise your score a bit do so. You should have a decent chance with a strong app.

Hi Ushabagadi

Hello again. You should check with IIMC, because they generally like applicants to have below 12 years of experience.

Dear Ushabagadi,

Please refer to the current batch profile.
https://www.iimcal.ac.in/class-of-2020

The current batch has 16% students with work experience of more than 11 years. So your work experience wont be discouraged in any way.

The admissions committee looks holistically at each and every application. GMAT score is one of the criteria. So give your GMAT and prepare a good application.

Regards,
SAC

Post MBA objectives :- To be in a general management or operation management function.

The following are my queries :-

1. We have a lot of students with work experience in the range of 6 years, so your current work experience would not hinder your chances of admission in MBAEx program.
2. Yes please mention about undergoing certification in your application.
Additionally, we have live chat session planned on Aug 15, 2019, Thursday at 7 pm and webinar on Aug 18, 2019 - Sunday at 11 AM wherein we will address other admission related queries.

Surely you can apply for the course. There is no upper age restriction.
