Remarks :

No. Overall it is good college. but do not compare it with the top tier colleges.

Admission :

This is one of the best institution I was getting based on XAT scores. Process involved entrance test, group discussion and personal interviews. It happened around March and results were out by May. Overall it was a great experience and being in the financial hub of India, it is worth it.

Admission :

I am a delhite and I wanted to move out of delhi for my master's. I wanted to do marketing and this college was on my list as their IMC course is very famous. I gave XAT, they accepted my score. I had a GDPI session with the faculty I got a rank based on that. Admission to their various courses are via ranks you get. As per my rank I was eligible for PGDM IMC and the call letter came.

Admission :

I got selected through MAH MBA/MMS CET. Admission is based on merit rank. The most attractive part of taking admission in this college is the infrastructure which is spread across 70 acres of land in the heart of Mumbai. On top of it, great faculty, placement opportunities, live projects, guest lectures and festivals make it a compelling choice.

Placement Experience :

Placements are very good and almost all batch gets placed in various sectors. College also provides ample internship opportunities and average stipend for internship is around 15000 per month. The placement cell is very active and also conducts training sessions which prepares students for placements.

Ques. Is it worth it to study for an MBA in tier 3 colleges like TAPMI, BIM, or KJ Somaiya?

● Top Answer By Apoorv Ankur on 30 May 21

Ans. The worthiness of institutes cannot be judged as such, which is dependent on several factors like placement, academics, faculties, etc. Some of the key factors of judgment are listed below which would help you make a decision. TAPMI has some decent academic facilities, faculties, and a proper environment. The institute creates an atmosphere for decent learning. If you go for these tier-3 institutes, you need to take two main aspects into account.  Get properly accustomed to your own credentials and profile. The institute helps the candidate to figure out their level of competency. How far you want to go in life. Because growing in life needs hard work and dedication.  Tier-3 institutes cannot provide top-notch placement. Mostly, the profiles offered are some areas in sales, which is not desirable to many. Categories TAPMI BIM KJ Somaiya Course Fee 15.1 lakh 92.14 K 2.97 - 16.29 lakh Placement Percentage 80-90% 97% 80% Highest CTC 25 LPA 16 LPA 27 LPA Average CTC 11.5-12.5 LPA 9-10 LPA 10 LPA Recruiting Companies Nestle, Capgemini, Godrej, Citi, etc. HUL, Asian paints, Godrej, EY, etc. Jaro Education, Calvin klein, ICICI Bank, Outlook, etc. In the case of Holy Trinity and some other top colleges, this is not the same. These institutes offer substantially high-salary jobs, which is the actual competition. Therefore, it is definitely worth studying in these tier-3 institutes, provided the candidate is serious about his profile, career, and preparation.Read more
