    MBA has a wide scope. Before you start, you should choose a good college/university to pursue an MBA. Because there are a lot of colleges running for money and they teach only what's written in the book, MBA is much beyond that. Now let's look at the scope you will have after the MBA. You will have various domains like Marketing, Finance, HR, Information Systems, Operations, etc. However, if you want other fields like MBA in Travel and Tourism Management etc are also available. Based on your interest, you can choose one domain that best suits you. If you are going into the Marketing domain, it's better to learn Digital Marketing as traditional Marketing is getting outdated. But Marketing con...

    Every year, almost ten-twelve reputed organizations visit our college for placements. Job opportunities are almost sure for all the students. If you can not manage to receive a job during campus you will definitely get a job after completing PGDM. PGDM students received an average salary package of Rs 5 LPA. Top recruiters included Oracle and HDFC Bank.

    The placements is just average. For me it was a good placement after a lot of wait (in may). Honestly i doubt even if 80% would be placed during my year. The placement coordinator was really good and it is because of her contacts only that we even got some good companies coming to campus. Had the emphasis been on the student's & faculty, better companies would have definitely come.
