  1. Respected sir, i want to do MBA , but i think i cant clear entrance exam like cat, mat, xat etc so please suggest me top colleges or university to do MBA and also give advice to me from where i should do mba and in which subjects.

  2. The universities listed above are up to the mark but the concern is average students and even good students sometimes cant able to get admissions in above universities. I have searches and found some great universities like JECRC providing excellent plateforms to their students. One can have a look to its website and check top ten university in india for details.

  3. Sir/mam,
