How to choose

With admissions to MBA colleges in full swing, students would do well to check out various attributes before zeroing in on the right college. A good college not only paves the way for a great career ahead but also helps shape a person’s character, beliefs and thoughts and leads to a successful life. To choose the right business school, following important guidelines will help.

Approval: Any institution which is offering an MBA should be approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). There are some institutions which are offering MBA or equivalent courses which are not approved by AICTE.

Affiliation: Institutions are either affiliated to a university or are autonomous. Each of the categories has its own advantages and disadvantages. Universities traditionally have a strong foundation, and autonomous colleges have the advantage of updating the syllabi as per the need of the industry, on a regular basis.

Faculty: It is advisable to check out whether the B-school in question has distinguished, full-time, qualified faculty to provide continuous guidance to students. Try to find out the ratio between the full-time faculty members and the visiting faculty members. Have a look at the kind of guest lectures at the institute. The faculty is the prime factor for providing quality education, and continuous support from faculty members brings out the best in the students.

Fee: This is an important criteria, and if the institution has a good track record of training and placement, it brings you the right ROI (Return on Investment). But the fee should not be a make-or-break criterion for you if the ROI is good. These days, there are numerous banks which offer education loans on easy terms, and that can fulfill the requirements of completing your operating expenses of the course.

Infrastructure: It is essential to visit the campus at least once as the students have to spend two years in the institute they join. They should feel safe, secure and comfortable. Also, there should be good facilities in the classrooms, library, cafeteria, labs and hostel, including Internet connectivity, Wi-Fi and so on. Campus should be student-friendly and have decent ambience to support studies.

Industry Linkage: This gives you the opportunity to get industrial exposure and expand practical knowledge during the tenure of your course. Location advantage and industry partnerships help in ensuring that students obtain interesting and knowledge-enhancing internships and live projects with reputed companies. These projects help in obtaining desired jobs in future as well.

Location: It is important that the B-school is located in an area close to the industry, education hubs and policy-making bodies. B-schools in metro cities are the top choice due to the presence of industrial houses belonging to various sectors.

Placement: Go through the placement record of the B-school. Check the company profiles, sectors of recruitments, average salary and so on. Besides a glance at the numbers, consider the quality of placements too, such as nature, reputation and the variety of companies that come to campus for recruitment. If you wish to specialise in a particular stream and work in that field (for example: marketing or finance), there should be a sufficient number of reputed companies from the particular field that have recruited students from that school in the past.

International exposure: Check on the institute’s credentials with regard to international exchange programmes. These will be of great advantage while looking for career opportunities abroad. International exposure in student programmes will also provide you the right platform to start your career.

Brand: A brand is formed over the years when great practices are carried on over and over again for a long tenure, creating a rich legacy. A branded B-school will create students as per immediate market requirements for ready acceptance in relevant job profile in reputed organisations. So, it’s always recommended that you join a ‘branded’ institution with proper industry backup.
