    Pretty neutral, in terms of friends made great ones there. Curriculum was good but very boring in the way it was imparted, all text book. Management was fine.

    I had done my bachelors in this college. Made logical sense to pursue my masters in it as well. Plus it met my needs of finding a university that did not mandate any residential requirements. I had to stay at home. This course was recommended by a friend.

    I chose this college due to my ambition to pursue MBA. This course is also an extension to what I’ve been studying in the graduation. Also, my keen interest in business analytics led me to this prestigious college. I believe that Business analytics makes intensive use of Statistics analysis, as well as informative and predictive modeling, and fact-based management to drive the higher cognitive process. It's thus closely associated with management. Analytics is also used as a most important too...

    You get an opportunity to learn and become a more responsible person. You need to attend classes as they carry marks but you also need to be active and do other things as well in order to learn as many things as possible. It teaches you a lot. Since the infrastructure is shared with other courses also, at times it becomes difficult to get access to seminar halls and other things.
