Heads of Bodies – National and International

When it comes to MBA entrance exams like XAT, CMAT, IIFT, SNAP, etc. the knowledge of the heads of important organizations is really helpful. More often than not, you will end up getting couple of questions on these. There is also a reasonable chance that you will get a question of Match-The-Following type where this information would be really useful.
