ACADEMICS & FACULTY
7/10

Daily Routine:

The day start at 9:30am when our classes usually begins. We have short breaks of 10min between each class. Every course has got a project especially for specialisation courses like marketing etc. They will be very useful to understand the concepts, challenges faced during the execution. Some projects even involve visit to companies or interviewing existing customers etc. Along with these, we have Project I, II, III, IV(Elective), V in the curriculum itself. Assignments usually will be handwritten -case study analysis, or some topic to be studied etc or even softcopies like PPT on some topics like Cash flow analysis or ITC Hotels Brand etc.

Quality & Method:

Faculty are good who will help you in all possible ways to understand the concepts with case analysis, role plays etc. But MBA being a more of self learning journey, students are expected to bring in more and more things to the table than to be spoon fed here.

 

Overall:

The college has given me good opportunities to learn and grow. I could showcase my skills of leadership, sales, negotiation, pitching, conflit resolution etc. Still I think things have to be improved as it being in the intial stages of its journey like the infrastructure, etc.
