HOSTELS & FOOD
6/10
Hostels available at cheap rates within campusery well maintained healthy environment provides comfortable stay. You name a game we have it here. Campus is always occupied with one or other event in which students participate in huge numbers.Though its hygienic taste of mess food is not up to mark.breakfast is good but then there are so many other good small places in campuses which would surely never let you down and hence food should not be a great concern.

FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE
5/10
It had a good international exposure. But now these days, it's very limited. But in future, there are high chances for students to get a good international exposure in terms of summer internship and job offers as well. Language of teaching is strictly English. Plenty of opportunities to learn foreign languages if one has a special interest, owing this benefit to the IIT Kharagpur Campus.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY
8/10
Academic schedule prepared specially to meet the industry demands for management students. Numerous numbers of live projects, competitions etc. always keep coming to help students to explore more.The academic schedule is quiet relaxed with classes starting from 8:15 in the morning to 5:00 in the evening.Classes take place on weekdays but we may be called on weekends by some faculties for extra classes if they feel the need. We have guest lectures almost every week where eminent business personality visits and delivers a lecture. Projects, quizzes and assignments are integral part of the evaluation process. During the first year, all subjects are compulsory and are spread across all domains like marketing, finance, operations, consulting and HR. In second year, students are given the freedom to pick electives of their interests. Methodology of teaching varies from faculty to faculty but most of them teach through power point presentations. Case discussions and video clips are also used for teaching but I feel that slightly more emphasis should be put on practical learning. with more importance given to case based studies and practical approaches to solutions rather than being book smarts alone. Inclusion of projects and assignments is strictly followed by each professor in his respective subject.With a pretty much relaxed time table, students get plenty of time to devote for project and assignment preparation. Quizzes and tests are conducted at a frequency of at least one or two per week which helps the students to be up to date with the curriculum. Students get a basket of choices for specialization in their second years and the courses are relevant to the changing and demanding industry standards. Professors mostly follow case based teaching methods and help students in approaching solutions the practical way. Being, a residential campus, professors are available well beyond class hours to the benefit of the students.
