ABBS' Professor M. Vishwanathan tells about what Corporates look for in an MBA

Every company designs its own recruitment pattern to select the best candidate to fill the vacancies in their organization. Corporates expect MBA graduates to be suitable for executive level positions. 

Generally, the first screening process is the candidate’s academic performance that is reflected in the overall percentage of marks that he/she has scored in the MBA program. Generally, the minimum cut-off that companies apply is 60%.  Some companies raise this bar to over 70% or even 80%. Corporates use this method to shortlist the potential candidates. Hence, students are advised to score well in their semester and university exams.

Thereafter, the candidates are generally put through a Group Discussion (GD) process to assess their general knowledge, communication skills and behavior in a group. Candidates are, therefore, advised to familiarize themselves with the various GD topics on contemporary issues and be well prepared to participate.

Subsequently, for the shortlisted candidates, companies may conduct aptitude tests to assess their logical thinking, analytical skills, knowledge and decision-making ability based on job requirements.  There are several online aptitude tests in various areas of specialization that the candidates can take to hone their skills.

The last stage in the recruitment process is the Personal Interview (PI) where the candidate’s confidence, body language, communication skills, knowledge, leadership qualities, teamwork, organizational capabilities and most importantly, attitude are assessed. Here, companies give importance to candidate’s participation in the co-curricular and extracurricular activities that reflect these attributes.  Candidates are advised to choose such B-schools that have plenty of such activities that make MBA a true experiential learning program. Before appearing for the interview, candidates must go through the company profile, its products and services, its major competitors, its financial performance etc., to do well in the interview. In short, candidates must present themselves well at the interview to create a good impression. 

These days, the competition for placement with good companies is fierce. MBA students are expected to excel in meeting the stringent placement requirements of branded corporates.  Awareness regarding the criteria that corporates employ in the placement process to select the best candidates will make the candidates prepare well for such encounters.  In conclusion, hard work at every stage can brighten the placements prospects of MBA students.
