I didn’t took any entrance exam.
I cleared CAT and scored 98.8 percentile. I was in the same city for last 3 years and MDI is always a dream for me. I knew few students and they actually learnt many things in 2 years so I also wanted to redefine me.
The entrance exam is the CAT, followed by a group discussion and a personal interview nowadays the CAT is entirely on the computer the college is a tier 1 MBA chiefs for most recruiters and a strong network of highly placed alumni ensure excellent pavements every year.
I appeared for CAT and scored 98.70%. I opted for MDI as it is among the top 10 institutes of India. Besides MDI has a beautiful campus and is located in Gurgaon (proximity to several corporates).
There is a separate entrance exam for part time MBA. I chose this college because of its the faculty was the same as for regular course.
