    A great option for fast track MBA.

    Remarks -

    I think one of the best things about the college is that they are always looking to improve. From our formative years, the college worked actively in identifying its areas of improvement and went about it in a professional manner. For example, we lacked a good infrastructure and now the college has one of the best infrastructures in the country. Our placements were skewed towards IT, and now it is evenly distributed across Analytics, Consulting, Finance, Manufacturing sectors. The college has remarkable branded itself, so that in about a decade since inception, its counted as a viable option among the best in the country. Yes, there are still areas of improvement as there will always be, but...

    Hi there, I would like to know whether part time or full time MBA is better?What about the placements for part time MBA students.

    Hi Dinesh, it depends on your preference whether you want to do MBA full time or part time. If you have adequate time then Full-time MBA is a better option otherwise for a working professional, part-time MBA works well.
