Hi,

Students have the option to work on comprehensive projects (CP) and independent studies (IS) that are guided by professors from various departments. You are free to contact professors from areas of your interest and work with them to select a CP or an IS

I would like some information from EPGP students (preferably women) with families and young children. Is it possible for me to reach out to one of the previous batch students or their families for more detailed information on Schools/ChildCare etc?

Hi,
There is no official cutoff for GMAT score and admissions are offered based on the complete profile. Last year's GMAT score range is 660 - 760. I would encourage you to apply with this score in case it is not possible for you to improve it before the application deadline.

Does IIM Bangalore accepts students applying for second mba. Is there any requirement for minimum work experience at the time of applying. I have 3 years work experience post first MBA. Also, what are the average GMAT score and post mba placement scenario.

Hi, We have students in current batch who already have an MBA degree so the answer to your first question should be yes. Minimum Experience required is 4 years. GMAT score range for the current batch is 660 to 760. Please refer the placement brochure on the EPGP website for details about placements.

Hi,
GMAT score is just one aspect of the application and is never by itself a make or break factor. Since, you have a competitive profile and a standout factor of a startup, I would encourage you to apply, highlighting your strengths in the application.

Hi

I wanted to know if there were any student ambassadors for the program. How can i get in touch with any current students or Alumni to learn more about the program.
I have certain questions pertaining to the structure of the program and also regarding the prospects of this program related to career prospects post epgp specifically for a guy with 5.5-6 years experience given majority of the class will have at least 8-9 years of experience.
Any suggestions/help will be really great.
