In order to get real insight about the MBA admission process at DMS, IIT Delhi, decided to speak to Mohit Yadav about his experience regarding getting in to DMS, IIT Delhi, how to tackle exam, choosing coaching Institute and managing GD, PI and life at DMS, IIT Delhi.


Mohit Yadav, first year MBA student at DMS, IIT Delhi started preparing for MBA in third year of engineering. A fresher, Mohit had chalked out a winning strategy for him to succeed. “I always knew that an MBA degree from a reputed institute will take my career on a fast track mode. If I would have went for a job just after engineering I would have been working at an operational level assisting a manager but having an MBA degree would help me to develop the required managerial skills and take me to a certain level. Whereas it takes around 5-6 years for an engineer to reach that level,” he says.

Q. Which MBA Institutes and Programmes you identified for your MBA?


Q. So when did you decide to go for MBA and what was the driving force behind to take this decision?
There were several instances which led me to go for an MBA degree, whether it was organizing parties or managing monetary issues of my friends all this helped me to realize that I have good planning and organizational skills. Although I managed to score good marks in technical subjects but technical line never excited me as a career option so I decided to move on, in domains where I can manage people and business development instead. Hence during the latter half of my engineering I indulged myself into some activities related to marketing like being part of the opera software community to promote opera products inside my campus, etc. Gradually I realized that MBA is a degree designed to give me the ability to develop my career to its fullest potential, at an accelerated pace.

Q. Has your expectations being met by the curriculum or you feel it could have been better?

The course structure of DMS is very well defined giving a holistic view of management. The department promotes the philosophy of ‘learning by doing’ where almost all activities and events are managed by student bodies. This gives hands on experience to the bussing managers.
