I am doing my MBA final year, and I have opted for human resource management as my area of specialization. Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University admissions for MBA Course will be made based on the Management entrance exam score. I gave CAT Entrance Exam and then secured a good score. I got shortlisted for the admissions, and then through counseling, I got a seat allotment. Then they had called me for a personal interview and group discussion rounds for the further selection process. Finally, I got selected and took admission, and the fee structure for MBA Course for the whole duration charges approximately 8 Lakhs. It is a bit expensive but worth paying in terms of education facilities
