An interview with Amit Kheterpal
Undergraduate (Pursuing Engineering 7thsem)
Age: 21

1.    What does an MBA mean to you? Why do you want to pursue it?

MBA  to me means overall development and exploring yourself for new opportunities. I want to pursue it because I think it converts an ordinary man into a gentleman.

2.    What’s your educational background?

I am currently doing electrical engineering (BE).

3.    Which entrance exams are you more likely to attempt? Which institutes would you aim for using your scores?

I am currently only aiming for the IIM’s.

4.    Which section(s) of the paper do you find most difficult to conquer? Why? How do you plan to overcome these hurdles?
The subject that causes utmost difficulty is Quantitative Ability (QA). The reason simply being I have not given much time to this section.
My plan of action is to not panic while solving the Quant section during the exam and to attempt questions which can solved fast.

5.    Now that CAT’s changed to a Computer based format, what are your thoughts on this change? Does this alter your preparations?
No it does not alter my preparation. I believe if the hard work and effort is constant, then the surprises don’t really matter.

6.    Given the unpredictable nature of CAT, what other googlies are you expecting CAT to throw at you this year?
Well I am hoping for a lesser number of questions and I suppose they will give more importance to Verbal reasoning.

7.    What are your expectations from your B-school? Which institutes, according to you, fulfil your expectations?

My only expectation is that it should increase my practical knowledge rather than theoretical. According to me, IIM-C is the best institute that fulfils my expectations.

8.    What field of specialisation are you more likely to pursue? Why?
FINANCE. The reason  is that it is extremely challenging and it has a good scope in the future.

9.    Where do you see yourself after you’ve done your MBA?
After an MBA, I see myself in a good position in a reputed MNC with good and steady income flowing in... :)

10.    The IIMs, by far, are the most sought after B-schools. What, according to you, makes them so popular to students and companies akin?

The different way and level of teaching and one of the important thing environment of scholar students make them different.
