      Because this is one of the premier B school, the quality of study plus the networking opportunity is very good. MBA course is not just about studies but rather learning from peer and getting to know the corporate world a little more. I am a freshers so this was the major cause of me joining MBA in IIMV, plus a got a good score and doesn't want to waste it.
