Higher education in India is becoming costlier in past few years especially management education. IIMs have increased their fees drastically in last few years. A two-year management course in IIM- Ahmedabad is around Rs 13.7 lakh whereas in IIM- Calcutta, the fee structure is around Rs. 13.5 lakh and in some premiere institutes it can also soar up to Rs 30 lakh or more. These amounts are quite heavy on the pockets of a middle class or higher middle class family. Even if a student has worked before and saved all the money, he/she may just fall short of the basic tuition fee for an MBA course. However, one should not allow the high fee structure to keep them away from the coveted B-School degree. MBA aspirants should select the right loan and pursue their dreams.

Today, loans for MBA course are available with almost all major banks. Some banks also have tie-ups with some of the premier institutes, where they offer the students a special rate of interest which is normally lower than market rate of interest.

There are certain key points that one must know when while applying for education loans:


Margin is the amount of fee which students are supposed to pay through his/her own pocket. A bank can either pay 100 per cent of the cost of education or a certain percentage of the total cost. Margin money is not covered by the bank for the payment of the essential and necessary fees. Generally, students are not required to pay any margin money for loans up to Rs 4 lakh. For loans above Rs 4 lakh, the margin money is 5% for studies in India and 15% for overseas studies. There are few schemes provided by certain banks in which margin money is completely scrapped out. For instance, Union Bank of India and Central Bank of India do not ask for any margin money under their special education loan schemes.

Collateral Security

Under a regular education loan scheme, a student borrower doesn't have to provide collateral for loans up to Rs 4 lakh. The bank asks for collateral in the form of a suitable third-party guarantee along with assignment of future income for loans between Rs 4 lakh and Rs 7.5 lakh. For loans above Rs 7 lakh, the student has to offer tangible collateral security equal to 100% of the loan amount along with assignment of future income. However, State Bnak of India's Scholar Loan for students of certain premier business school (except Indian School of Business) as well as the Central Bank of India's IIM scheme does not ask for any collateral security.

1. No Matter How the areas are decided, QuotesChimp utilize their record-assembling capabilities to calculate the prices of vehicle insurance statements within each recognized area. The insurance market's abstract thought for this particular prices mechanics is the reality that many injuries happen inside a number of kilometers of where the car is garaged. Therefore, the corporations genuinely believe that areas supply an exact foundation for pinpointing their threat. And, as we observed in Section 2, the buying price of insurance is conditioned by the danger of reduction to the corporation.

3. Seems simple to me. Be clear and cicsone. How effectively do you communicate? That's a question you're being asked w/o it being written down. Answer it like a pro in your field would(if they were trying to impress the people who are going to be reading it!). You're trying to make a case for yourself. Impress to whom ' with your abilities at every point you can. But don't come off looking like a dork either. If a phrase fits well, use it. If a sentence fits better, hey, go for it. Use your best judgement, that's what they're looking for from you, how good is your judgement? Using proper grammar can be a big plus(because so many others won't be!). Oh yeah, and no typos!
