TAPMI, India’s leading B-School, Jindal Global Business School (JGBS), a part of the O.P. Jindal Global University, and TCYonline.com, India’s No.1 Test Prep portal, have joined hands to provide impetus and guidance to thousands of MBA aspirants who will be appearing for various MBA entrance tests in the next few months. Winners would be awarded with cash prizes up to Rs. 10,000 and many other rewards.
The three organizations have joined hands to launch MBA Wizard-2012, a twelve week MBA pre-entrance contest that will help identify and groom India’s best future managers. The contest will be live on TCYonline.com from October 3rd to December 24th 2011.
Every week, Top 10 students will be selected on the basis of their performance and all these students will be given cash prizes, certificates of appreciation, and complimentary admission forms from sponsoring institutes & career counseling sessions. There are special prizes for Top 3 performers of the event.
With more than 50,000 MBA aspirants expected to participate in the MBA Wizard 2012 contest, the results will be less ambiguous than the results in a traditional classroom where skills of a limited number of students can be benchmarked against one another. TCY Analytics, a database of nearly 4 crore analytics will help the students identify their strengths and weaknesses, which in turn will help them improve their performance by targeting weak areas.
