Pre-MBA preparation courses are foundation degrees or preparation courses designed to meet the needs of an MBA aspirant at a premier B-School.
For most students joining premier B-schools, the first year is a high-pressure time. And more so this year, with the course starting late. The 1st years grades are key for placements and Term 1 subjects and GPA is a key advantage for Summer Internships.
Despite Diversity points, 70-80% of students joining IIMs and premier B-schools are engineering students. The courses that cause greatest difficulty are Accounting and Financial Markets and the Micro and Macro Economics course. Graduating from a premier B-School is a challenge you should not underestimate, and a pre-MBA offers you the right tools to meet this challenge.
Pre-MBA preparation courses are created for MBA candidates who have a non-commercial background. The pre-MBA courses will help the aspirants to get essential exposure to Financial management and Micro-Macro economics principles. This way the Pre MBA courses help the MBA aspirants to jump to the core of their MBA studies, without getting overwhelmed.
A pre-MBA course acts like a bridge between your previous studies and your master in business administration, making sure that you start your degree from equal or even with an advantage over your colleagues with a commercial background.
