Hello Friends,

Any MBA is not good but a good MBA from a good B school is definitely good for our career.

Please read the following blogpost also which will be helpful to you

You may refer following blogpost for details. Now everybody is in hurry to take "MBA" and so everybody want to sell it like "hot cake" 
Time to time, I have written various blogpost

I have clarified about a Diploma and MBA of NMIMS

I hope this will help you to make informed decision

I always told people that first, they should give preference to an executive/ part time MBA from a reputed institute. Few such institutes are XLRI, Symbiosis (not SCDL), Welingkar (3 years part time MMM, MHRM not their distance edu), FMS Delhi, JBIMS to name few. 

Now, FMS Delhi has advertised for its executive MBA programme. 

please see the advertisement below:

Courses offered:
It offers following courses 
Executive MBA
The course is going to remain same for Semester I and Semester II
Students can select elective from Semester III onwards. 
Finance (Executive MBA- Finance)
Marketing (Executive MBA- Marketing)
Strategy and Leadership (Executive MBA Strategy and Leadership)
Production and Operation Management
IT  Management
Service Management
Healthcare Administration

It is constantly ranked no.3 in India, ahead of many IIMs and one of the best institute to pursue management education. 

Few clarifications

  1. Neither FMS nor any other institute offers placements for executive MBA.
  2. You will never get equal preference to a full time MBA holder from FMS however, the brand FMS will definitely help. Since it is a part time programme, it will be taught by the same professors who teach the full time students. Further, when you apply for a job, you will always get preference over even full time MBA from tier 2 institutes. 
  3. This degree makes you eligible for higher education even to apply for teaching profession in future. 
  4. This is a part time programme and equally rigorous as a full time MBA


  1. Compulsory lectures , evening 6.30 PM to 9.30 PM
  2. Open only for graduates with minimum 45% and with minimum 5 years supervisory / corporate work experience.
  3. Admission through entrance test and GD/ PI

The selection process weightage is as follows:
Academic Weightage i.e. Graduation: 20% :  2% for every 5% marks above 40% i.e. if somebody has 55%, he will get 4 % weightage

Academic weightage - Post Graduation: 10%: 2% for every 5% marks above 40% i.e. if somebody has 55%, he will get 2 % weightage

Work experience: 30% 2 % marks for every 1 years of completed service beyond 5 years.

Writing ability test: 10% on the day of personal interview, candidate is expected to write an essay on 250-300 words on given topic

Personal interview: 30% 

In a nutshell
The candidate with more percentage in academic, more work experience, with an additional PG degree will get more preference over the candidate with the minimum work experience. 

Last date for accepting the application – 31st December, 2013. 

Clarification about experience certificate and sponshorship certificate:

the organization on their letter head along with the stamp
