Master of Business Administration [MBA], batch of 2019

The on-campus placements for MBA graduates in NIT-K are mostly student driven. Since NIT-K is a technical institute and the School of Management is still gaining popularity, a number of companies that visit the campus for recruitment are way ahead for BTech and MTech graduates as compared to MBA. The average salary package offered to an MBA graduate ranges from 6 LPA to 12 LPA.

Internship opportunities are a regular commonplace and one Summer Internship is mandatory for every student as part of the curriculum. I have done internships at, Edvizo and GetmyUni the stipend for which ranged from 10000-15000 rupees.

NIT-K has an alumni network. The alumni association keeps reminding the current inmates about their gratitude by conducting various events (marathons, sports events, social welfare activities, entrepreneurship support etc.) on a frequent basis.
