Welingkar GDPI ApproachRahul Singh
Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research is known among the top Management Institutes. Students who have applied for CAT/ XAT/ATMA/CMAT/GMAT exams are eligible for Welingkar Institute of Management’s GDPI process of admission.
Here is the Guide to WeSchool’s GDPI approach with the process:
A student after getting results for the above-mentioned exam can apply to WeSchool. The process starts with the Welingkar’s Online PGDM form which is available on their official website. After filling the form the students are required to download and fill it offline.
The students need to be very meticulous while filling the form because this form is very different from what the other colleges have. Once the offline form is filled, students are required to send the form along with important documents mentioned by Welingkar (such as Resume, Score Card of the Exam, Academic document, Work experience documents, etc) for verification.
After submitting the offline form along with the other documents, students will be selected for Group discussion and Personal Interview. For which candidates will get a few days to prepare for the process. The Group Discussion and Personal Interview will have 15% weightage each in the entire process of admissions to Welingkar Institute.
The group discussion will test a candidate’s ability and skills in analyzing a situation and participation and group dynamics. To prepare for this candidates are required to have a structured way of the case discussion so that he/she will stand among others and can come to a solution to the given situation or problem.
Now let’s have a look on Personal Interview process. This is something everyone will have a little idea about, but these interviews are different from what is presumed by the candidates. Personal Interviews are meant to understand a candidate’s fitment for the college which is beneficial for both the college and the candidate. Now the question is how you will make the panelist understand that you are fit for their college; or how will the panelist determine your fitment.
To excel in the interview a candidate should be prepared about everything she /he has done in the academic and professional life. Good presentation skills and decent knowledge about the current happening in the country along with a Good Profile will increase the chances to clear the GDPI process even at a lower score.
Few points need to be kept in the mind while preparing for GDPI:
- Know yourself very well (Strengths and Weaknesses)
- Achievements (Be ready to wow the panelist with your achievements)
- TLAM (Think Like a Manager)
All the Best!!
