MY MASTER'S JOURNEY
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
My one year fee was around 2,60,000 Rs. which is comparatively less than other top tiers B-school. Xavier group is known for their premium fee structure since having a Xavier degree is a Job assurance in itself. Facilities offered are also pretty good.
Name an industry-specific top brand in India and there is a pretty high probability that it will be there in the placement process. The college is very helpful in assisting the students in the placement process. Some of the top companies which show up quite frequently for the recruitment process include HDFC Bank, ICICI, Lynk, Decimal point, Kantar group, Reliance, Ipsos, etc. The average packages secured by my batch was around 4 LPA, while the highest would go as high as INR 9 LPA.
Admission to one of the most prestigious management colleges is as tough as crossing sea on a boat. Thankfully the weather doesn’t spoil your journey here, but tough competition can. So you have to be prepared. I prepared for more than a year for my XAT exam and secured a pretty good percentile. I attended the common admission process, did well in that and, voila! I was eligible for a number of top B-School. Mumbai being closer (comparatively) to my home, instantly became my first choice.
Hostel facility is also available for select candidates. Hostel rooms were pretty much affordable and hygienic. The facilities provided in the hostel rooms included a relaxing room with indoor games like carrom and TT. The mess food was also good.
Faculty is pretty decent and are some of the brilliant minds of the Indian corporate. The teaching style is top-notch and unique. The structure of the classroom is specifically designed to eliminate the monotonous model of teaching. Our classrooms were semicircle shaped and perfect for a two-way teaching style. The faculty used to share their personal experiences and valuable insights on live topics, which literally helped in shaping our thought process.
Campus Life was pretty great and lavish. One of the specialties of the Xavier is there legit adherence to the phrase work-life balance, as in this case, it was the academics and extracurricular activities. The campus life was pretty fun, which helped in relaxing the tension of the exhaustive course curriculum. The infrastructure was not good enough and a lot of room for improvement.
