Executive MBA Reviews

Master of Business Administration [MBA] (Executive), batch of 2018

The infrastructure of IIFT is in a very poor stage, nothing seems working at college, the bathroom is not cleaned properly, classrooms are very old fashioned and poor WiFi, computer, sound system, Mike, etc. This is something they need to improve a lot. Since IIFT is govt College so they don't care about complain about this and they keep blaming Admin and govt. Also very poor in accepting student demand.

In OH all the girls (1st year and 2nd year) and a few first year ( around 60-70) boys stay and the rest of the 1st year boys have to stay in the C-9 Hostel which is around 10minutes walking distance from the main campus. For boys, the hostel are allotted on merit basis. Those with a higher final score would get to stay in the OH hostel and once that gets filled, the rest will have to stay in C-9 hostel.
  • The current mess charges are Rs. 7500 per trimester. The figure may increase or decrease according to the market condition. A lot of students prefer to eat at one on the several dhabas present near the institute.

  • In IIFT Delhi, there are 3 hostels. Out of these, 2 hostels are located on campus namely OH and NH. The 3rd hostel , fondly called C9, is located at 800 m walk from IIFT Delhi campus.  The hostel rent for the 2015-17 batch is INR 47,000/- per student per annum on triple occupancy basis and INR 57,000 per annum on double occupancy basis. 
  • The MBA full time course at IIFT is a residential program and it is compulsory for students to stay in IIFT Hostels. Having said that, if at all PGs are permitted, then the area surrounding IIFT is an education hub with JNU and IIT-Delhi in very close proximity. So PGs/other options are easily available at a rent of around INR 5k-6k per month.
  • The food in college is decent. It's not the greatest, but mess food can and usually at most places is far worst. The cost per meal comes around INR 45-50 per meal.
  • Quality of classrooms is fair. The classrooms lack enough power plugs and charging points under the tables. Same goes for Computer Labs. Library is a wonderful asset at IIFT and is easily one of the best. Dining Halls need a work around in terms of Renovation. Wi-fi is bad at IIFT with NKN yet to be implemented and often causes a lot of problems. Infrastructure wise, IIFT needs a lot of work and vigil.
