Eligibility

To pursue MBA at THAPAR students must satisfy following eligibility criteria.

The minimum qualification to apply for admission to the MBA Program is a Bachelor's Degree (10+2+3 years of education) in any discipline which is recognized by the Association of Indian Universities, or any degree equivalent to the Bachelor's Degree, with a minimum of 50% aggregate marks in the Secondary / Higher Secondary / Pre-degree Examinations (or equivalent) conducted by a Board / University.

Those appearing for the final year of the Bachelor's degree examinations may also apply subject to completing their examinations or viva-voce, if any, before June 30. Such candidates will however have to fulfil the above eligibility requirements in respect of minimum academic qualifications for admission and furnish evidence to that effect latest by October 31. At the time of interview and/or admissions, they will be required to produce a letter from their College Principal / Head of Institution stating the exam dates.

Candidates with appropriate industry experience will be given preference for admissions. Their work experience will be given due weightage in terms of the organization, position held and duration.

Admission Procedure

Selected candidates will be called to attend Group Discussions and Personal Interviews. Multiple Group Discussion & Personal Interview lists will be released in phases, both before and after the Application Deadline. The intimation for interview & group discussion is done through registered post and e-mail. In the case of some programs, Group Discussion may not be conducted, in favor of a rigorous interview process.

The selection criteria for calling candidates for admissions is based on multiple factors as follows:

  • Past academic performance
  • Quality & content of the answers in the application form
  • Work experience, if any , in terms of job content & organization
  • Group Discussion & Interview performance (applicable for final admissions only)
  • Extra curricular activities, other interests & accomplishments
  • Competitive Test score (CAT, MAT, XAT, CMAT)

A combination of all the above factors are used to determine the eligibility of candidates to be offered final admission. Test scores are NOT the only criteria for selection.

A high test score does not guarantee a call for Group Discussion/Interview. The selection criteria are based on multiple factors as mentioned above.

Student Reviews

  • BE Electrical Student

    Remarks

    It was the only option left to me after I gave JEE Mains-2018. I preferred to chose my interest over college as I was not getting Electrical branch in NITs while Thapar University, that too in my home-state, offered me Electrical. Because of it's standard, legacy and good NIRF ranking(20th) caught my attention. Good faculty and placement records also persuaded me to select this college for graduation. Summing up, I would like to say that Thapar University can provide all the opportunities a student wants at a heavy price. If one can pay the huge fee and has the thirst of learning things, has interest in the course being taken then Thapar will be the best place for you.


    Entrance Exam

    Admission to Thapar University is done on the basis of JEE Mains marks. Cut-offs is different for different branches/streams and there is home state quota for Punjab students too. After JEE Mains Exam, online application forms are available on the website. According to marks, students are alloted streams. Counselling session is conducted for 3 days where you have to pay the fees for 1 one semester and chose hostel services(optional). The FROSH TEAM of Thapar University takes care of all the admission process.


    Fees

    The course fee for an year is approx. 3 Lakhs per annum(excluding hostel). It is affordable by middle class families and rich people but very difficult for poor family background. Considering the placements, I think the fees is not justified because after paying around 20 Lakh for 4 year course, a package above 10 Lakh is good but the reality is that very less number of students achieve this barrier.


    Placements

    Yes, my college has a placement cell and a Training center where students of 3rd year and 4th year are trained about the interview and selection process for different companies. The cell organizes regular seminars, guest lectures and Mock Placement session. it prepares them for Personal Interview, Technical round, Aptitude test, Group Discussion etc. Product based and service based companies visit our campus. The average package offered is 8 Lakhs per annum while the highest is 40 Lakhs per annum(By Microsoft). Core companies do visit our campus. Almost 80% of students get placed out which many students go for higher studies/preparing for competitive exams. Some of the mass recruiter companies like Infosys and TCS also come offering a salary package of 3 Lakhs per annum. Companies like DE Shaw, Microsoft, Bajaj pay a good amount.


    Hostel and Facilities

    Boys Hostels- A,B,C,D,H,J,K and Iconic Girls Hostel- E,F,G,I,PG Some Hostels are AC and Non-AC as well. Some are 4 seater, 3 seater, 2 seater and 1 seater. The quality of rooms and food increases with money. The more you can pay, more facilities you get. The security and WiFi services are good at every hostel. WiFi limit is 6GB per day.


    Alumni

    The Alumni network is very good. Many start-ups of Students are funded by the Alumni members. An Alumni meet is also conducted and seminar for students by notable alumni to guide the students. Students can also contact them through social media platforms easily like LinkeIn, Facebook etc.


    Faculty

    The faculty is good here. Professors really create interest while teaching and follow a practical approach. Class timings are from 8AM-5PM which includes lectures, labs and tutorial classes in which assignments are discussed. Tecahing is done through projectors and digital blackboard. Sometimes due to so much syllabus, lectures become boring too. But my overall academic experience is Good.


    Campus Life

    The classrooms are fully Air Conditioned and equipped with high-tech projectors and digital blackboards. Labs are fully updated with modern machinery. The Shiv Nalanda Library is opened 24*7 for students and almost every type of book is present. If not, then the book can be ordered by requesting the library authorities. Sports facilities are also up to the mark with trained coaches. Behind every successful man is a woman, behind every prosperous college are the societies and clubs. Thapar University has 50+ societies (Technical and Non-Technical) • Literary Society • Music and Drama Society(MUDRA) • Fine arts and Photography(FAPS) • Creative Computing Society(CCS) • Microsoft Student Chapter(MSC) • OWASP • L.E.A.D • Thapar Model United Nations(TUMUN) • Global Internship Council(GIC) • Enactus • Economics Club(ECON) • Indian Society of Technical Education(ISTE) • Institute of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineers(IETE) • Toastmasters Club • Thapar Mathematical Society and many more………… SATURNALIA is the Largest Techno-Cultural Fest of North India and a symbol of pride for Thapar University. This grandiose fest is a perfect blend of events, competitions, workshops, guest lectures and star night spanning over a period of 4 months along with 3 major fest days. MUDRA NITE is a gala night with Western and Cultural dance performances, skits and plays performed in OAT (Open Air Theatre). VIRSA spreads the knowledge of rich Punjabi culture among the students by organizing a series of events, from learning Bhangra (Punjabi folk dance) till learning to tie a turban, all things are taught.


    Academics

    MST(Mid Semester Test) and EST(End semester Test) along with tutorial tests, lab evaluations are a part of every semester. A Reading week is provided prior to the exams for preparation. MST are held 3 months after a semester starts. The level of MST is average while EST are hard. Questions come from books and tutorial sheets but checking is kept tight.


    Internships

    Yes, college provides compulsary internship at the end of 3rd year. Being a first year student, I cannot participate in internship process. Therefore, I applied on online portals to work as an Content writing intern. I am Campus Ambassador for Buddy4Study and Content Writer for HealthAsta- A delhi based company which provides diet plans. Both internships are unpaid.


    Loans and Scholarships

    Yes, Loan is provided by the university at a much lower interest rate while Scholarship is of two types- Income of Parents and CGPA of student. The details can be accessed from college website.
