Dear Aspirant, I would not suggest a Diploma in Export and Import since it will give very very basic level of information about International Business. I would strongly suggest you to have a long term perspective and pursue MBA International Business. If you can manage to do MBA International Business from a premier Institute or a good reputed Institute with good placements, then there is no need to MIB from abroad. Always remember, International Business depends on the country's foreign trade policies and regulations, there it is bound to be different from country to country. Best wishes

Hello Wasim For selection in every we;; known company, there’s a procedure that includes various steps like telephonic interview, group discussion, technical round, personal interview, background verification, etc. At least one or two of these steps are conducted.

Dear Aspirant, Though you may get jobs based on polytechnic in information technology, they would be not much paying and the job profile would not b very good since your technical skills are of intermediate level and you have not earned proficiency in it. If it is required for you to work after polytechnic, then I would suggest that do find a job, but continue with your graduation in engineering part time. Getting a bachelors in engineering is highly recommended for a stable and growing career in the IT industry. Still the recommended suggestion I would give you is that you should go for BE in

Dear Aspirant, Companies have only one tool to short list or filter candidates and that is on the basis of percentages in the degree or masters courses. Generally top companies ask for minimum 60% in the degree or masters course. Generally 10th or 12th std marks are not a determinant for jobs for freshers at first instance, however if they are very low, then you may be put on waiting list by the companies. Best wishes
