MBA 2021 Applications Guide – Options to look for in Tier 2 segment
Published as on Feb 07, 2021. In continuation to our story on Value for Money – MBA and as requested by many of you, we present some options in the Tier 2 or 3 which should not be missed.
Two critical points which have been considered again here is – A) investment for the 2 years MBA and B) Market dynamics
In these difficult times where openings and recruitment are getting increasingly “industry oriented” which essentially means, recruitment are happening where skill sets match the demands of the recruiter and are better aligned to the job roles.
To understand better let us see which are the B Schools which have fared well during this tough time by meeting the recruiters specific and super speciality demands and offering industry-specific specialisations and curriculum.
Indicators considered here are the placement report and the Summer Internship (SIPs) and recruiters profile, roles offered.
According to Prof. Rajneesh Chauhan, Dean, Corporate Relations at FORE School of Management, “It is not that recruitment is not happening in this pandemic situation, the placement scenario has changed with time and has become very focused now. If a Tier 1 company comes to our B School or any B School for that matter, they will look for Tier 1 quality & skill sets in a student they would like to hire. Talk about the consulting or IT companies like Delottie, KPMG, PwC, CTS, HCL, Wipro etc. which come to our campus every year, look for quality that would match their class. Areas such as, insurance and mutual funds, fintech, healthcare management, business analytics, FMCG, E-Commerce, IT/ITeS etc. are recruiting. SIPs are happening in the virtual mode. The Business schools which have revised curriculum and meet the industry requirements are preferred by recruiters.”
