Ques. GIM or TAPMI: Which one is better for marketing and why?
● Top Answer By Janvi Sheth on 22 Apr 21
Ans.When we talk about a particular field in any college it is like choosing the best fruit among others. But when it comes to marketing it is something that is in demand due to the highly digital surge. Now, whether choosing marketing to pursue from GIM or TAPMI let me make it easy for you.
In GIM, marketing is much better as its course structure is designed for a specialized simulation game in Marketing, namely Markstrat. In the past, GIM also has received accolades for its curriculum designed for Marketing.
TAPMI and GIM are close and can be compared in so many things. Such as Rankings, placements, roles offered, infrastructure, etc. given below:
NIRF Ranking (Overall)
Genpact, Godrej, Boyce Co LTD, GTL and Hindustan Unilever, and many.
Deloitte, Grant Thornton, HDFC, ICICI, EY, Wipro, Magic bricks and many.
INR 25.6 LPA
INR 25 LPA
However, as GIM has a smaller batch size, it defines a very important parameter to choose a college. Both of these colleges will provide you with equal opportunities. But GIM as an add-on will provide you a better campus life.
The marketing department of GIM also represents some wonderful faculties from all over the country. Some have Industry experience for over 10 years. The tricks and tips they give about practical marketing won't be found in any book.
Moreover, GIM is known for its Marketing curriculum. The institute provides the best case-based theoretical solutions. GIM's Alumni base is present in the Marketing Departments of some of the top companies in India and on a global scale.Read more
Ans.Comparison between both of them is not easy. Both of them have their own reasons to stand and flourish for years.
While there is a very slight difference that comes out by just having a look but let me help you in comparing better the two supposedly rival institutes.
Location: It is almost similar for both institutes. While one is near IT city Bangalore, the other is near the commercial capital.
Batch strength: It is certainly an advantage at GIM Goa having almost 60% of the strength of TAPMI Manipal. GIM Goa offers better opportunities with lesser competition to the candidates.
It is almost similar with a difference of 1 or 2 Lacs, being relatively lower at GIM Goa.
Overall ROI could have been similar again but the lower batch size makes it slightly in favor of GIM Goa; very minute difference though.
While even the top B Schools have been hit by the enormous batch size, TAPMI Manipal getting hit is obvious.
If you have work experience of 3 years or more you should not be joining either of the two institutes. Because with a load of loans they are going to impose on you and the median earning potential they are going to provide you. You would be in a huge financial debt for at least 5 to 7 years give or take.
It is fine for freshers or people with less work experience to join as their opportunity cost and the personal responsibilities awaiting are relatively lesser or counter them after few years of graduating from B School.Read more

This completely depends upon your growth in the college and therefore, the numbers might differ. The fee structure is around 17.21 lakhs. But if you look at it through the ROI perspective, it does not look good.
If it is considered that a student is shortlisted and feels that they can perform better if they give the Entrance exams one more time, then they should take a drop year. But if a student feels that they are confident enough to grow at GIM, then they can opt for it.Read more
