What amazing timing! Thanks guys!

Pretty useful stuff...Great job! Including some information on approx. basic cost of exchange prog. and scholarships (and how it differs across continents) would be nice ..obviously it depends on univ. and how much you want to splurge, but an indicative comparison would be great for the next article. Further, I think MDI has an amazing line-up for exchange prog. as well...please see if that can be included as well..

how does the selection of students for exchange programmes takes place?and for xlri is there information of the number of hr guys going for exchange as xlri-hr is considered best in asia-pacific?

Student exchange criteria is CQPI + interest based. Students select their preference and as per their position in class they are selected. IN XLRI good amount of HR students go on exchange. As you will realize later, the purpose of exchange program is not solely academic, most HR students don't care if HR electives are offered or not, if they get into a good Bschool, they complete their credit requirements for specialization by taking more HR courses when they are back.

I wonder why MDI is not included especially when quite a few foreign b-schools listed above figure in MDI's exchange program

"In terms of the number and quality of partners, we would rate IIM C definitely below A and B, and definitely above the other institutes." Is IIMC that much behind A and B? A and B se call aane se raha.. C is my only hope in the big 3.... IIMC seniors say that IIMC is better than A and B in all aspects.. Can someone throw any light on this?

The IIMB website has listed the names of its partner universities (around 100). Hope this may help some folks. <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>
