I entered XLRI through XAT. Other options available are CAT and GMAT. A good score along with a good career progression before XL has helped me to enter the prestigious college. Interviews are focused on your past achievements and future aspirations and your zeal to become a manager/ entrepreneur.
It is the only college I aimed for (as it is best for MBA HR). Other management courses are also good but HR is what it offers in best possible manner. Being from Delhi, it was really difficult for me to adjust in town like Jamshedpur as there are no good places to hang around also.
I took CAT and XAT. I did not receive calls from any IIM's. I had applied to XLRI's BM programme only and because of a 99.72 percentile, I received an interview call from XLRI.
XAT, Xavier's aptitude test that takes place on the first weekend of the year three sections with different cut offs for BM and HR.
XAT, scored 99.6 percentile.I opted for this course as at that point in time it was my opinion that the only colleges better than XLRI were IIM A, IIM B and IIM C. Unfortunately I didn't get calls from them. Other than that the college alumnus and culture was fantastic and the overall development of a person is much better than the IIMs where the focus is primarily on academics.
GMAT -710 CAT 98.3 Seemed good value for money. Other course that I got at one of the lower grade IIMs was of 2 year duration. This course seemed be apt for me as I had relevant experience.
I appeared for an examination called XAT Xavier Aptitude test. I scored 96.85 percentile in it and got interview callI chose XL because of its Brand value.
An executive MBA from XLRI jamshedpur requires an SOP, resume and an interview. i was always looking for an executive MBA as i did not want to take a break from my work. and XLRI is the best in the country when it comes to executive education in business management.
XAT, The college accepts both XAT and cat scores marks should not be less than 50 perc. After clearing the cut off the selection is followed by GD and PI.
I appeared for XAT and scored 99.82 percentileXLRI being one of the oldest and most premiere institutes of the country made my decision very easy.Alongwith the great academic rigour, faculty, quality of students, placements the one factor which also played a role in me choosing the institute was the fact that my hometown was just 3 hours away from the city of Jamshedpur
