by Ankur Gupta

IDFC FIRST Bank MBA Scholarship 2019-21 – MBA education is an academic dream for many Indian students. But the rising expenses of MBA programs across the nation have been pulling back the aspirations of many such students. A parliamentary report submitted by Justice B. N. Srikrishna Committee to the Supreme Court of India and the Lok Sabha in the year 2015 suggested that the cost of MBA education in India should be maximum INR 171,300 per year for any student. Today the average cost of an MBA program is INR 7,53,200 per year. To help the students who wish to pursue management studies at premier institutions of India, IDFC FIRST Bank has launched a scholarship program this year.
