Webinar: All About Specializations – I


  1. meet says

    hello sir!!
    can you share your views on MBA in business analytics (IIM kashipur). scope and future growth.
    And can we be a marketing manager with this degree?


    • Hi,
      I am not sure about this program since I do not personally know anyone who has done this program.

      I would advise joining only the flagship program of IIM-KSP. Find out if the placements for both regular program and the Analytics program are common. Speak to current students for sure.

      All the best!


      • meet says

        sir, the placements are common for both the programs. But I want to ask you about the scope and future growth in this domain (MBA in BA). TIA


      • Business Analytics is emerging as an important tool to support businesses — firms are either setting up their own data mining wings or outsourcing their Analytics needs to firms such as muSigma and Latent View that do the analytics work, in very much the same way that they outsource their IT/ITes work to our software firms.

        The number of such firms will only increase and management roles in such firms will be offered to people will with a degree in the same.

        The scope for roles in non-Analytics firms in traditional functions such as Marketing, Finance, and Operations is still unclear.

        Hope this helps,

        All the best!



    Hi sir,
    I’m really into data science. So, interested in PGDBA offered by IIM C, IIT K and ISI Kolkata jointly . Request you to give some insights on Business Analytics specialisation and scope of it in the PART 2 webinar.
    Also request you to suggest some universities abroad with a good reputation in business analytics.

    Hi sir,

    Can you please provide some inputs on NMIMS Mumbai core v/s VGSoM-IIT Kharagpur.

    My profile is Mechanical Engineer with 2 years work experience in IT company. Also my 10/12/Grad is 8.8/93.8/70. As of now I am not sure about the specialisation. Please help as to which B-school I should prefer.


    • Hi Ritesh,
      I would say NMIMS since overall it will offer a much wider selection of offers across sectors. Among the IITs, only B is truly competitive with regular MBA programs.

      All the best!

      All the best!

    Hi Sir,

    Thanks a lot for the first webinar. It was really informative.

  7. Shyamal says

    Hello sir

    I have converted NITIE and will convert other new IIMs as well, but the main problem im(many) facing right now is how to choose a college based not only on ranking but based on the field that i want to pursue in future.
    How can a person identify how he/she is suitable for a particular field based on his/her own profile? And on the basis of that which college would be best suited?
    Sometimes interest doesn’t go well with actual situation, like NITIE is best for ops but if i later choose no to go in that field i believe there is other colleges who are better in some field than nitie on the other hand i might be interested in consulting but my profile doesn’t go along with it. Which profile goes with which kind of field?

    How can one get out of this dilemma, so that later we don’t have regret?


    • Hi Shyamal,

      One has to eventually look at domains that is one most interested in or sectors (e-commerce, tech etc.)

      Choosing a “good” and “evergreen” or “high-scope” department is what leads most engineers away from core and towards an MBA.

      One cannot repeat that mistake with another by choosing a “good” college.

      I have done a series of webinars on how to choose your specialization along with profile alignment, you can find them here — https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLZLYq7TWue8lNn1U5ZkRqnNtj7X-jxKot

      I hope this will help you figure out your interest and profile alignment.

      Hope this helps,

      All the best!
