A warm welcome to VistaMind Kolkata!

We believe Business is the endpoint of all that you learn; commercialization of ideas and concepts is the final application of all knowledge. That is how knowledge gets shared over the world, and the one who takes such a decision “on time” rules over all. Thus B-School graduates are the most sought after professionals in the world, because they carry the ability to make “a product” get its national or international reputation. B-schools are truly finishing schools, where your existing skills are honed and made ready for worldwide recognition.

At VistaMind we carry this philosophy to re-define CAT as an exam –

C : Concepts               A : Application               T : Time Management

VistaMind is a strategically tight-knit team of Subject Masters, Application Experts, and supremely renowned Industry Professionals who are dedicated to the 3 most important added aspects exclusive to our institute:

  • Micro-level Personalized Doubt Clearing sessions.
  • A super-structure of Online Classes, Virtual Workshops along with stringent Classroom sessions.
  • Classroom Workshops and Analysis Sessions of Mock and Real Past CAT papers.

What goes hand-in-hand are one-to-one mentoring of all CAT takers considering Study Plans, Pain-Area Focus and Development.

The Epic strength of VistaMind lies in the Post-CAT B-School conversion program: the best in the country Group Discussion, Writing Ability Test, and Personal Interview Process up to 200 hours of rigorous training by Industry Specialists and Alumni members.
