I appeared for CAT and scored 98.70%. I opted for MDI as it is among the top 10 institutes of India. Besides MDI has a beautiful campus and is located in Gurgaon (proximity to several corporates).
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Fees at MDI keeps varying every year. For PGPM 2011-13 (my batch) it was Rs.12 lakhs which was at par with other premier institutes.One can easily avail loans from various banks. Several students in MDI took from UBI who had a low interest rate for top tier students and had minimum documentation requirements.
Everyone in the batch gets placed either through pre-placement offers or through final placements. As per the report on the website for batch of 2015, 103 companies participated for PGPM, 42 for HRM, 29 for IM. Average compensation being Rs.15-16 lakhs and highest package of Rs.25 lakhs (domestic).
Faculty is one of the best in India. Since, MDI has the location convenience most of the professors stay with their families and are accessible even after college hours.
MDI has a lot of academic and cultural clubs. Also there are a lot of parties that keep happening. I did not come across any case of tolerance issues, so i believe that MDI is a tolerant institute. We also celebrated all the festivals in our college with equal enthusiasm.
We had an exhaustive structure which included projects, mid terms, end terms etc and it was a trimester system.The first term was hectic but thereafter becomes normal and chill in second year based on your electives.
There are multiple companies that come for placements and a lot of students receive final offers based on their internship work. Refer the employment report for MDI for details on statistics.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
UBI offers a good loan at reduced interest rates as mentioned above. Others like SBI, Credila offer good rates as well.
