Fee Structure And Facilities :

The total fee for the entire one year is ninety nine thousand rupees, just short of a thousand to make it one lakh. A lot of people might consider this to be expensive but let me tell you that the quality of education is well worth it.

Placement Experience :

The college has a very well designed placement policy which is very clearly mentioned on the college website. The college has an outstanding placement record of 97 percent as of last year, which speaks a lot about the college.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The course is a year long one and it is an on campus course which allows the student to enjoy the beautiful campus of Times and Trends Academy. The curriculum of the course is very well structured and industry oriented.

Course Curriculum Overview :

The course is designed to transform the student from inside out. We not just learn about event management, but also overall personality development. From basic fundamentals of event management to communication skills to entrepreneurship, the course covers everything. The specialization study (like corporate events etc.) in the later part of the course makes sure that you excel in whatever you do in future.

Admission :

I always wanted to be a manager, but not be in a corporate world, that made me choose Event management at TTA. And not the traditional management courses in other colleges. The admission process involved of just 2 steps: 1. Fill out the application course with desired course 2. Present your documents and submit the admission fee upon call from the institute.

Campus Life :

Everyday feels like a festival at TTA, with something exciting always happening at the campus. Monthly parties with the faculty and the students makes it even more fun to learn. Discrimination on any basis and TTA are 2 completely seperate things, everyone from a student to an expert are treated with the same respect.

Course Curriculum Overview :

It has a fab course with brilliant academicians lined up in the pipeline. The curriculum involves meeting and food service management as part of the hospitality sector. I have gone through a number of time management courses as part of the curriculum because at the end of the day time is all that matters here. Thus, there were days when we did not have time to have our lunch or even spend leisure time with friends or family.

Placement Experience :

Our college has a track record of 97% placements over the years. Mine is still a bit far but I am in awe of the ones that have gone past. Top media houses and event management companies were on campus for placements. Most of my friends are well placed in different companies from all over the country. A campus recruitment drive is a place where I enhance my networking skills with few of the best corporates in the industry.

Admission :

My 10+2 marks did play a role in my admission but their entrance test took precedence and I was admitted on merit of that exam. I feel privileged to have cleared the admission process and will be clearing out from the batch of 2022. I an extrovert and thus a course in Event Management/Anchoring was the best choice for me. It was the best option for me as I am born and brought up in Pune.

Placement Experience :

The placement scenerio is different in the event field, here the comapnies do not come for an interview, they just look at your work while you are working and they pick you up, its just that you have to be alert and hard working because you are been watched and interviwed the whole time, I was at various events and the stipend was according to per day payment which was around ?1000/- per day

Admission :

At first when I was searching for a institute for eveng management i was so very confused but later i came to know NIEM has been the best since years so i went there and asked the authorities to get admission, I was welcomed and also explained how the course works. Then I was asked to submit the documents and the first installment of fees and Yaa, Its done.

Faculty :

The faculties are very supporting and helped us to get placed somewhere and its been so hreat to have supporters around you, the companies look over your talent and pick you up but the primary job is of the faculties who bring great companies to the students and set up a link.

Placement Experience :

No, placement will be provided to only 10% students but at the time of admission they said we guarantee for 100% placement this not at all correct. Internship will be provided to only 20% student. they have only 2-3 companies as there partners who provide events and internship to student but once they got new batch they will definitely leave the older student unemployable.

Remarks :

Start with positive remark is that they are very good counselors too get mind of the students and there guardians they captured the mind and force them to take admission in there College but after you got admission, there real face will be revealed. Coming to negatives, they never give in return what they promised At the time of admission.

Faculty :

They are good at there work. The College has very good faculty with nice experience and skills to teach student at there best. There are around 40 faculty in the College but when we come to event management there are only 4 teachers in the College and all are guest faculty. The HOD of the department doesn't teach us.

National Science day is celebrated every year. Painting, slogan writing, poetry, etc. Competitions regarding the environment and similar topics are provided. Study materials for various courses have turned quite old and also need some changes.
