But, just getting enrolled in the best institute will get you nowhere. If you seriously wish to pursue MBA, you need work hard and go that extra mile to achieve your goal. You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. Put your thoughts into action. Study hard, practice harder and success will be yours.
