Symbiosis – MBA Direct Admission. There are different reasons why MBA aspirants opt for direct MBA admissions to B-schools in India. One of the biggest reasons is their inability to crack the highly competitive and challenging MBA entrance exams like CAT, XAT, IIFT, and others. With the competition quotient on the rise every year due to the increasing number of MBA aspirants, many candidates find it difficult to get admission to the B-school of their choice.

Similarly, many top B-schools in India have very stringent selection standards when it comes to MBA Admissions. Especially, when it comes to the academic background of the students, B-schools tend to be particularly harsh, rejecting many deserving candidates. Such candidates also opt for direct MBA admission mode to join B-schools of their choice through management quota, NRI quota, and other quotas. Symbiosis – MBA Direct Admission

When it comes to premier B-schools such as IIMs and SPJIMER, XLRI, and others; they follow a centralized admission process through which candidates are granted admission as per their merit and not necessarily as per their choice in terms of specializations, programmes, and B-schools.
