Arunava MBA/PGDM, batch of 2018
10 Nov 2016 Rating :
  • The institute has excellent faculty and the course is also structured in such a way that even a non - commerce background student can learn the concepts easily (I am giving the example of Finance as it is my field of study in SIMSR). Also, there are many activities happening all the time in the college which provide an all-round development to the student.
  • There are many clubs, starting from finance to marketing, operations, hr. There are many social and cultural clubs too. Also, it a lovely campus full of greenery and is perhaps the only b-school in Mumbai which has it\'s own playground and a running track.

Shankar MMS, batch of 2016

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: Going by the general opinion of the students, the faculty is slightly better for the PGDM course, as compared to MMS, but the syllabus is almost parallel. Apart from Finance, all the major subjects faculties, the students say are good. Finance is a bit of trouble. All of them are highly qualified, and some even Ph.D holders. Although some students would say that the professors can’t express themselves well. But you cannot rule out their experience, and their very approachable attitude. Guest faculties are common with colleges like JBIMS, Wellingkar and Sydenham, so you certainly expect brilliance from these teachers taking their respective subjects.
