...Kamat systematically and effectively, demolishes the notion that an MBA is a magic wand that will change your life...the book destroys the myth of the invincible MBA... --- Mail Today
says Dr Jochen Runde (MBA Director), University of Cambridge
This is a revised and updated edition of this bestselling book with useful new material to guide the MBA aspirant – the working executive as well as the fresh college graduate – on doing MBA from abroad.
Most Indian MBA applicants are completely at sea when it comes to approaching international education opportunities. This is primarily because the MBA selection process and the parameters considered by the top business schools abroad for admitting candidates into their fold are very different from what applicants are used to.
Beyond the MBA Hype talks about the typical issues, challenges and dilemmas that Indian and international applicants grapple with when it comes to the best MBA programs.
Here's what the top Bschool admissions officers are saying:
“I found the perspective quite interesting in terms of even better understanding the mindset and concerns of Indian candidates in particular. It’s not a ‘here’s how to get admitted’ story but rather ‘here are some things to make sure you’re thinking about the right things,’ which I believe is a great approach. Too often, candidates rush to an MBA thinking it will provide all of their dreams. Beyond The MBA Hype does a good job of helping them to think through the process of not just admission but the entire MBA….”

“The book was engaging because the author used narratives to convey the messages. He is right that applicants from India neglect to consider their ‘fit‘ in a school and focus too much on metrics such as rankings.”
- Sheldon Dookeran, Assistant Director of Admissions
Rotman School of Management (University of Toronto)
