Timings of the college vary from courses to courses and year to year, many projects are given and assignments too. Quality of teaching is excellent in every stream. I'll only say that overall experience is very good.

Bachelor of Management Studies [BMS], batch of 2020

ACADEMICS & FACULTY

The class starts at 10:00 AM in the morning and ends mostly at 3:40 Pm. The class hours is of 55 mins with a 5 mins break in between classes and a 45 mins recess break. In my course, there are lots of presentations and assignments given to us in groups. The quality and method of teaching are average when the new teachers are teaching but the faculty of the SXC is the best. My overall experience is average because the infrastructure and faculty are still being build up.


CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS

Since this is a new University so currently not many societies have come up but there is cultural society, debate society, photography, sports society. Life in college is pretty monotonous as we don't have many facilities available right now since everything is being built up.

Master of Commerce [M.Com], batch of 2013
8/10
ACADEMICS & FACULTY
The M.Com. department, one of the newly introduced post-graduate courses offered by St. Xavier’s College since its post-autonomy period, is governed by the Ignatian Pedagogical Paradigm of ‘conscience, competence, compassion and commitment’. Born in 2007, the motto of the department is to offer quality education in the higher studies of commerce and to develop human resources with social values catering to the needs of both, industries and academia, at the national and international level.

SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE
The curriculum, designed with active co-operation of experts from within and outside the organisation, can easily compete favourably with one that is offered by any leading B-School in the country. But that exercise would have been futile if we had failed to deliver our best to our students in terms of classroom teaching and curriculum-support activities. With an eye to that end, we are in a continuous effort to give state of the art methods of pedagogy in the department - thanks to the team of our highly qualified faculty members, who are both committed and student-friendly. The practice of case-study based teaching with the use of multi-media and interactive sessions with the students is intended to make them feel more comfortable with the subjects offered which they can grasp with ease and élan.

All teachers are PhD holders. Courses are industry-based, and they are always up to date. There is the freedom to study any subject. Teachers are very helpful throughout, and studying beyond the syllabus is always encouraged here. The college has a conducive environment to study.


CLUBS & ASSOCIATIONS

It was there but I did not have keen interest in it. There were many sports, functions and festivals held in our college. Life was very interesting and my friends were really helpful.

Class timing is from 10:00 hours - 15:40 hours. Per class is of 50 minutes and in between two classes, there is a 5-minute break. There is one break of 40 minutes (13:00 hours - 13:40 hours) Quality of teaching is highly preferable and the method of teaching is digital. Apart from this teaching is done in a very comprehensive and unique way. To be precise, I have a thrilling experience and with each passing day, I gain knowledge and experience.
