Sri Balaji Society comprising of four management institutes: BIMM, BITM, BIIB and BIMHRD is one of the premier management education institutes in India. Ranked at the top in prominent and noteworthy magazines, periodicals, journals and newsletters it is one of the few institutes in the country which can truly say that ‘we place all our students’, a statement that can be verified as the truth based on its placement statistics, available on its website.
Every year lakhs of students pass out from the many thousands colleges and universities in the country. Majority of them wish to pursue various courses in management ranging from Marketing to Human Resources, no doubt attracted by the lucrative job offers, good packages and job descriptions offered by companies all over the country and the world. India our country is being seen as a premier destination for foreign investment, thanks to the various policy measures and decisions enacted under the Modi Government. This has given a new impetus for individuals to turn themselves into entrepneurs, with startups and new companies started left, right and center.
Naturally one cannot expect anyone but the best, to bear the responsibility of managing these companies but the students of management, and thus, thousands and thousands of students vie to write management institute entrance exams: CAT, MAT, SNAP, XAT, etc. to attend and hopefully secure these jobs via campus placement in their respective institutes.
What marks Sri Balaji Society apart from this ‘crowd’ of management colleges and institutes is the ‘uniqueness’ of its admission process. While other institutes concentrate on ‘percentile’, Sri Balaji Society places an emphasis on ‘performance’ as it sees its three tier admission process as a ‘litmus test’ to assess whether a candidate has ‘what it takes’ to be a part of the society.
From its side, the society has made it ‘easy’ for the candidates to contest themselves for the opportunity to be one with the society. Its application forms are priced at economic rates and its admission process admission tickets have ‘pan-India’ validity, in other words, a ticket issued for a center in New Delhi can also be used to attend the admission process in Goa, in Bangalore and in Dehradun via prior notification by the candidate to the admission process representatives of the society. However, one admission ticket can be only used by the candidate for one center only and it cannot be used for more than one center at one time.
The admission process begins in the third week of February and concludes in the fourth week of March in 31 centres located in the metro and non-metro cities in India. Teams of the Society’s Admission Process Representatives and student volunteers visit each city and assess hundreds of candidates to filter out those who make the ‘cut’ post formation of the merit lists. The admission process is a ‘test of assessment’ of the candidate’s skills: Communication skills, inter-personal skills, negotiation skills, current knowledge level, people skills and so on. Those who make the cut can expect to receive a letter, confirming their admission, verily the visa stamp on their passport to a better career.
