Academics & Faculty : The class timings for the in house faculties is during usual office hours i.e. between 9 to 6. The timings for external faculty depends majorly on their schedule which may go even upto 9.30 in the night. In the first year the schedula was quite fixed as most of the subjects were taken by external faculties. In the 2nd year it became a bit scattered as the guest faculty subjects increase. We need to find time apart from the classes for projects or any other activity. The projects and assignments may take long sometimes depending on one's speed and the speed of the teammates.  The pedagogy is majorly case based and one needs to find out on their own what is going on in the class. The faculty is decent, depends on the subject and the interest of the student. Overall experience is very good. One just does not have enough time in the whole program for everything. Trade offs have to be made at every step.
