Careers360 held an MBA Tour 2022 to help postgraduate management students choose the best B-School. As part of the Careers360 MBA tour, directors, admission counselors, industry experts, and alumni of top B-schools in India answered all the queries and questions asked by students regarding admissions in right B-schools. In one such session held on January 9, Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA)’s Professor Preeti Priya addressed students’ queries on the admissions, selection criteria, cutoff, placements and other details regarding the institute.
Talking about the admission criteria in the Institute of Rural Management Anand, Prof Preeti Priya said, “IRMA as an institute is more focused on its processes. So we here are typically looking for the right set of aptitude and attitude in a candidate. Aptitude is captured through the CAT/ XAT entrance exam performance of candidates. Whereas in terms of attitude we are looking for people who are curious i.e. have intellectual curiosity in and about anything. People who are willing to learn and explore new things and who are enthusiastic about MBA. Students who not just look at MBA as another means of livelihood but consider it as a life option are considered ideal candidates for IRMA.”
