While selecting a business school, there are a few basic things that you should keep in mind. You should firstly understand why is it exactly that you want to do an MBA? An honest self-assessment will help you to make your choice easier. Decide on your short term and long term goals and then research the schools.
First of All you should think of the brand. If added to your resume , what value does it mean for you career. How recognized is the brand in India and globally. JRE Group of institutions is backed by Educomp which is by far the largest educational company in India. People remember the brand Educomp as an innovator of sorts for being the first company to make classrooms interactive in India.
You should keep your target in mind. What do you want to do after an MBA/PGDM degree? If it is the industry you are targeting, then I would suggest you should definitely consider the JRE since it imparts specific industry training and professional certifications are offered to the students as well. You have certifications from Microsoft and Oracle which go a long way in enhancing your employability.
You should then look into the school’s placement committee and check out who is it headed by, talk to the ex-students, find out where they have been placed and then if possible, also check out which all companies have come for campus recruitments down the years. If you are checking out JRE, let me then tell you that its placement cell is headed by people like R. Jayaraman, who is an MBA from IIM-A with plenty of years of leadership and CEO position with Vardhman Group and Anuj Ahuja, who is from IIM-B and has been a visiting faculty to top business schools in Delhi.
Next you should look into the faculty, the teacher to student ratio and the infrastructure. Regarding the infrastructure, you should check if the school is providing you with hostel facility or if you have to find accommodation yourself. JRE is a premier institute to have a lot of Foreign Faculty who are there full time to train the students.
Look into the cost of education too. The total fees of JRE for the two years MBA course is around 5.5 lacs and the maximum number of students graduating get a higher package than that. So, you are almost assured of a greater return on investment.
So, if you are looking forward to a great learning experience, JRE with its academic partnership with Raffles, Singapore, will surely provide you with one of the most enriching and satisfying learning experiences ever.
