The selection criteria
at all B-schools differ. Different B-schools
have students from different academic
backgrounds. Some have work experience, some don't.
So what kind of students do B-Schools prefer? This is by
far the most debated topic. Here are a few
statistics that might clear a few apprehensions.
These statistics have no direct implication
on who gets selected into B-schools. These
statistics just tell you the percentage of
students from various fields, working/non-working
who are presently studying in various B-schools.
The percentage of students who finally
get selected often reflects the percentage
and background of applicants. Hence, if the
number of engineers who join an MBA program
appears high, it is because a very high number
of engineers take the CAT.
