I can't say about EDII please experience it.
When I was searching for colleges in India for Entrepreneurship I got to know EDII is the best college and only college specifically for Entrepreneurship. For admission details please visit www.ediindia.org
The overall world created in the campus will give you the experience in accordance to your point of view and interest in entrepreneurship.
I gave CAT and scored 74 percentile. As I mentioned the experience here is quite unique the focus is entrepreneurship so instead of jobs they help you to get your startup funding and just this sentence made me opt for this collage
I applied on the basis of my CAT score. The application takes place online. They they have their own test and interview.
Don't think about placements when joining EDI. They have an Incubator CrAdle that is meant for helping incubate startup models of students. Budding entrepreneurs are assisted with seed funding in the range of Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 3.5 lakh. In the past 8-10 years, the college has seen over 700 students successfully establish their own businesses.
Like the Gujarat government has established this institute for promoting new businesses, other states must also take similar initiatives.
The college has a similar admission procedure like other MBA colleges. We have to pass the CAT/MAT/XAT to apply. Then they have their own exam (objective type questions) followed by GD/PI.
I applied online to the college on the basis of my of MAT score. The admission process is fairly easy. Don't worry about your entrance exam scores. When you are selected by the college for further procedure, they ask you to give their own written test and to appear for their interview session.
This college is not for getting jobs and very few offers are made, if any. The college grooms students to start their own business. Many students have entered e-commerce solutions domain.
We have to give CAT, college written exam and GD/PI. So there are three stages of admission. Application takes place online.
This MBA is not for getting a placement in a corporate company. This program is for those who want to start their own business. Most students go on to launch a company of their own or to join their family business. Some who aren't successful in this, later on go to take up jobs.
We have to appear for one management entrance exam. I had my CAT score. Then, after applying online to this college for admission and if we are selected, then we have to undergo their own written test and their GD/PI round.
Since 2008-10, +70% of EDI students either set up their own business or joined their family business after finishing MBA from here. The college helps students (not all) secure INR 2.5 to 3 lakhs as VC funding. Students are also guided and helped in securing funds from government schemes related to their business.
Other states should follow the example of Gujarat and set up institutions like EDI.
You have to pass the CAT to be eligible. I think the institute accepts other management exams also. After applying, if you are selected, then there are some more tests to be passed.
Getting admission to EDII is comparatively easy. First you have to pass exam like MAT, CAT, CMAT. I had passed XAT. Score is not very important. Then apply online for admission. The college holds one objective type entrance exam for Business Entrepreneurship (BE) students along with interview. This is the selection process.
If you want to run your own business, then do join this college. However, if you are looking for placement, it is not the college you are looking for. Its for business people only. The college goes to the extent of saying that it is best for those who own family businesses but that is not entirely true. If you don't have an idea about your future business, be rest assured you will be pushed to find one. It isn't like most MBA colleges.
I had passed the MAT so I could apply to this college. Then the college puts you through its own exam and GD/PI session for selection.
Most students from here go on to start their own venture so don't think too much about placements. If you want a high paying corporate job then this course is not for you.
