    By Executive MBA, do you mean full-time, 1 year, residential management education for experienced professionals? If yes, then you can explore the following programs - 


    PGPX, IIM Ahmedabad

    EPGP, IIM Bangalore

    IPMX, IIM Lucknow

    PGPeX, IIM Calcutta

    EPGP, IIM Indore

    PGDM-GM, XLRI Jamshedpur

    PGPM, SPJIMR Mumbai

    NMP, MDI Gurgaon

    PGDM-Executive, IMT Ghaziabad

    ExPGDM, IMI New Delhi

    PGDMX(R), IRMA Anand


    To be eligible for these programs, you need to be a graduate in any discipline with more than 5 years of full-time work experience and managerial potential. You also need to write Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), however, some of these programs accept CAT as well as XAT scores. 


    Also be advised that the admission to most of these programs is highly competitive and clearing the minimum eligibility criteria is not sufficient to secure admission. Check for the expenses and the average salaries upon graduation, and compare it with what you are earning at present. An MBA at your level is a substantial investment, which may or may not deliver the desired results.

    sir i have done my graduation from school of open learning and my graduation percentage is also below 60. do I still have a chance of landing in any good college ?

  • A

    If you completed your Bachelor's education from a recognized institute (recognized by UGC, AICTE or MHRD), and you have 50% aggregate marks, then you are eligible to write CAT and other management entrance tests - a prerequisite for admission to MBA or equivalent programs in India.  Reg. your chance of landing in any good college - a lot depends on how you perform in CAT / XAT / MAT / CMAT / NMAT etc. and in the subsequent admission process.  However, if you have scored below 60% despite your best efforts, you must dig very deep in your preparation for these exams as they are highly competitive.

    Sir. I got 90% in 10th standard and 88.6% in 12th standard. Marks went down during my graduation in BTech Biotechnology to 6.3 CGPA. Do I still have a chance to get into the top B Schools in India?

  • A

    Your graduate-level performance may be a point of worry, however, your 10th and 12th performance is good. One dip in academic record should not hamper your overall prospects. Again, your management entrance test performance, extra-curricular activities, diversity, work experience etc. will also factor in during the selection process. You must, at present focus on what you can change - that is your performance in CAT/XAT etc.
