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.

FEES AND SCHOLARSHIP: There is a slight difference in the fees for the MMS and PGDM courses, where PGDM students pay Rs.4,00,000-Rs.5,00,000 for the entire course, and MMS students pay about Rs.3,50,000 for the entire course. But students have no regrets about the fees, as they get what they are promised of.

PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK:
  • To be ture Internships are offered of varying qualities, even some companies offer zero stipend. I did internship from a startup who promised Rs 5000 per month but after completion declined to pay anything. Placement committee is also not concerned with stipends.
  • However the placement committee facilitates very good final placement offers to its students and all students get placed. The ROI is good due to low couse fee.
  • The alumni network is very strong and different committees invite them to come to college and share their experience so that students can choose specializations and career paths wisely.

PLACEMENTS & ALUMNI NETWORK: Even while we were talking to the students regarding this review, 200 out of the batch of 300 had already got placed, and the students are very certain that 100% of the batch will be placed. Although the college does all they can, while getting companies to recruit students, there are some people who are very particular about their preferences, at times, do not land up in a job.But one thing peculiar about the college, is the procedure followed (which the students believe is not seen in any other b-school), which then causes things to come at the behest of LUCK. In the defence of the college, the system is in place to provide every single student irrespective of his/her performance, a very fair chance. Thus, the no. of companies coming to college is HIGH, but the process reduces the average student placed. The average range of pay packages/salary here is around Rs. 6-7 Lakh per year, while the highest has gone to about Rs.8,00,000 per year, which is pretty decent.

INFRASTRUCTURE & TRANSPORTATION: The college comprises of two buildings,  of which the newer building takes the charm compared to the older one, but both are maintained well. All the classrooms are air-conditioned so that the studying environment remains conducive. The college has not made the provision for wifi internet connectivity, citing certain security issues, which the students feel could be managed. That does not mean students do not have access to the internet, the computer labs do have internet, but the speed is pretty annoying. The library has more than enough books available for all, even during exam times. The students also have access to an e-library system, which is available to all the students. But the PGDM students enjoy a slightly more convenient facility, by which they get to keep all the books for themselves, that are needed for the semester, pretty cool in a way. The sports facilities are good too with a cricket and a football ground. The college does provide a hostel, but staying at the hostel is not mandatory. The hostel-ites feel the charges are more than what it deserves, rooms are small, but on a whole it is manageable, and in the end, hostel-ites are the ones’ who snatch the larger chunk of fun, in the two years.  Also the facilities at the hostel are improving by the day, so no issues on that if you don’t live in Mumbai.
