Student Reviews

Master of Business Administration [MBA], batch of 2013

I had thoroughly enjoyed the combination of curriculum and extracurricular activities in my college. The days start at 9.30 and closes around 4 pm. The method of teaching and the quality of education had been at par with the best of B-schools in India.


Entrepreneur cell, marketing cell, HR cell et cetera have been formed by student bodies to support and promote ideas of students from the basic Grass root level. Multiple numbers of co-curricular activities take place on the campus. Also, students are encouraged to visit other campuses to exhibit the talent.

Master of Computer Application [MCA], batch of 2017

Daily Routine is good but not better. Quality and method of teaching are too bad.
