by Sameer Kamat

There is no doubt that education in India is way different than education overseas. While in India most work can and is done with the power of money, the institutes overseas have very strict and different parameters to judge a student’s candidature. Masters in Business Management (MBA) is one such sought-after course that stands proof to the growing apathy of students in India.
Beyond The MBA Hype: A Guide To Understanding And Surviving B-Schools by Sameer Kamat addresses the woes and issues faced by students when applying for MBA programmes overseas. The book begins with the basic question as to why one should go for an MBA.

It further goes on to explain the application process, the overall outlook of the industry, tips on how one can improve their MBA profile, ways to ace the CAT exam, the skills gap that causes hindrances and how to overcome those, skills and benefits of networking and internship, ways to go about your career hunt, career change, etc.

The book demystifies the hype around the course and walks you through the steps to achieving your goal. MBA aspirants will benefit from the realistic and practical approach of this book as the author mentions the techniques and yardsticks used by international universities while selecting students.

The author himself is an MBA Graduate from University of Cambridge with several years of IT and Management experience. He gives insights to the academic life and issues faced by students on securing a place in B-schools. Worries related to networking, internship, career hunt, career change have been revealed skillfully. The book will make you introspect to find out your real goal, and ways to achieving it.
An absolutely worthy book for all MBA aspirants.
