You do not require to know any foreign language to get admission to MBA or equivalent course in a good business school in India.
What you can do right now to increase your prospects of getting into a good MBA course is starting preparations early. Admission to a good MBA course is generally divided into 3 stages:
The written test generally contains questions on:
Numerical and analytical abilities
Logical deductive abilities
Data interpretation and data sufficiency
Apart form these, some institutions ask questions on business awareness and some other ask to write an essay on a managerial or socio-economic topic.
If you qualify in the written test, you are called for a group discussion and interview session. In the group discussion session, a topic is given to a group of 5-10 candidates for discussions and reaching a conclusion.
Your final selection depends on:
Your academic performance (results in graduation. However, in most of the institutions this is given low weightage)
Performance in the written test
Performance in the group discussions
Performance in the interview
Work experience (however, in most of the institutions work experience is given low weightage
Getting admission into a good business school in India is very tough. It is highly competitive and only the best brains get through. Apart from academic performance and performance in the admission processes, you need to have excellent communication skills in English. You should have focused career goals and you should have a set of action plans to reach your goals. Management institutes want to find out how systematic you are vis-à-vis your career plans and thoughts.
So we suggest that you start preparing for the admission tests now. It will be better if you take the help of a preparatory class which offer coaching. Following are the leading coaching centers in India offering MBA preparatory coaching:
