My journey with the Institute of Management Development and Research was pretty great. The learning and fun came at a pretty decent rate. We had one of the best infrastructures in the industry and the level of dedication from the faculty was also pretty helpful.
The course gave us a perfect view of the rapidly changing landscape of the corporate sector and essentially prepared us for the start-up boom the Indian corporate sector is going through. The case study analysis was essential for channeling our though process in an analytical direction.
Companies like HDFC, ICICI Bank, ICICI Prudential, ICICI Securities, Sudarshan Chemicals, Bajaj Finserv, Karvy Stock Exchange, Bajaj, and many other local and international players regularly visit the campus during the placement drive. The level of assistance we received from the placement cell was great. Pretty decent packages were offered during my batch.
I paid an amount of 2 lacs as my one year fee, which was pretty feasible. This fee covered my tuition fee, registration fee, library fee, etc. Our college provided some pretty decent facilities at such a nominal price.
We had a pretty great infrastructure on our campus, especially the sports ground. Students are motivated towards taking part in various sports activities. Our college provided excellent facilities for sports both indoors and outdoors. A number of workshops are also a part of our curriculum.
My admission was done on the basis of the MAH-CET entrance exam, which is a state-level management entrance exam conducted to facilitate admissions to a post-graduation level management program in the state of Maharashtra. The entrance test is followed by a GD and PI round. Performance in these rounds will finally determine your admission to the college. The management was pretty supportive throughout the admission process.
The faculty was very helpful and supportive. Some of our faculty members were not that qualified, but overall they all were good and helped as much as they can. Some of them were so progressively talented and smart that they were available for us almost all the time.
Big opportunity to get easily placement. A lot of companies came every 6 months. There is a special class for students on how to crack interviews during placement time which very helpful for students. The faculty will provide every possible help to get selected for the interview.
From semester 1 itself, students are eligible for summer internships with companies like DE Shaw, Acresium, JP Morgan and Chase, Marsh coming in with various profiles. The highest stipend offered is 1.45 lacks an average being about 25 thousand. From trimester 4 onwards you become eligible for Final placements. About 160-170 companies come in total for the placement process and the highest package is about 28 lakhs and average about 10 lakhs is offered. Almost 90-95 percent of the students are placed.
Quite a good experience as of now as there is a beautiful balance between academics and extra curricular activities. There are different cells and clubs in ISBM where you learn real life management skills, put whatever you have learnt in your studies. Being a member of lifestyle development cell, I exactly know how important these cells are and may impact on your life.
Firstly I gave CAT and then applied for ISBM, a few days later, got a email that I got selected for the interview process but at the D-Day had to give aptitude exam, wrote an essay , group discussion and then gave interview taken by the President of ISBM.
Admissions are granted on the basis of any of the top management level entrance exams like CAT, etc. Otherwise, the applicant has to appear for an entrance test organized by the university. After the exam, the college conducts a GD and interview round, on the basis of which students are offered admission.
Placements are pretty good at our college. Our college has close relations with some of the top brands in the industry, such as Loreal, CCD, Kotak Mahindra, Swiggy, HDFC, etc. The highest salary package secured by a student was around 13 LPA, the average package offered was around 4.5 LPA and the least salary package offered during my batch was around 3 LPA. They also provide training sessions for preparing students for the mock rounds.
I applied for the MBA program are granted on the basis of a management level entrance exam like CAT/XAT/MAT. Students have to apply with their entrance scores and academic details like graduation marks etc. The college will invite the shortlisted students for a GDPI round. A merit list is prepared on the basis of all these factors and that's how the entire admission process looks like in our college.
Placements are pretty decent in our college. We got an immense amount of assistance from the placement cell. They have tie-ups with some of the leading businesses of their niche domain. Some of the companies which visited our campus during my batch include brands like TCS, Karvy, Oakland Capital, HDFC, CBRE, etc. The average packages offered were also pretty decent at around 7 LPA.
I absolutely love studying at Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University. I get the best faculty possible to teach me the material. Fees is affordable too. If you are thinking of taking admission here, you should.
College is very good. Faculty is world class . Management too is good . But i would warn you that all depends on you . Dont think they will feed you too the mouth. I would rather say the foor is ossom but you will have to use your hands to eat it.
They have their own exam but CAT is acceptable well, I think that attracted me to this college was the placement assistance, which gave a positive vibe, though I did not opt for placement through them, as I was already well placed in my field of work.
I did not attend the internship as I was already working at the time when i joined the MBA course here but there is 100% jobs assistance for the people who are not working.
