Pune: The Association of Management of MBA / MMS Institutes (AMMI) of Maharashtra is creating awareness about the upcoming MAH CET for admissions to MBA courses offered by the government colleges and universities in the state. The campaign is being carried out as very few final year students are aware of the examination, and thus fail to apply.
Speaking to Sakal Times, Dr Sajid Alvi, Member of AMMI said, “While the MAH MBA CET is being held for more than 15 years now, not many in the final year of their graduation are aware of this entrance examination. Usually, many students don't pay attention to these until their semester gets over, and by the time, it's too late. Thus, we are trying to create awareness about the entrance exam in colleges.”
The MAH MBA CET 2018 will be conducted on March 10 and 11 this year. The MBA entrance exam would be a computer-based online exam that will act as a screening test for MBA aspirants seeking admission to over 400 top MBA colleges in Maharashtra.
Presently, the senior members of AMMI are going to several colleges across the state to spread awareness about the examination, motivating the students to apply. AMMI is also conducting a Facebook campaign to reach out to maximum number of students.
“The government has several scholarships for the students coming from economically and socially backward classes, if they appear for MAH CET and seek admissions through the centralised process. We are also informing the students about all these scholarships. If there is a greater awareness about the examination, more students from all stratas of the society will be able to pursue MBA courses, and also take advantage of the scholarships that the government offers,” Alvi said.
