Factors that drove me for admission in Somlalit Institute were its great past record in placements of students in reputed companies, well-experienced faculties, the reputation of college and excellent reviews of college by alumni.
The college follows the GTU's MBA syllabus. Every year students of MBA are given opportunities of an industrial visit, we were given the opportunity to visit GIFTS city Gandhinagar. Many of the subjects are taught by industrial experts with their practical views & experience which helps students to better relate to current market situations. Faculties of the college are well experienced and qualified with best knowledge of there particular subjects. Especially I liked to attend Neha mam's lectures and the practical examples which relates to current situations are great.
I have done my internship at TIMES OF INDIA - Ahmedabad, here we were given the task of acquiring subscriptions for Times group magazines. We were paid a stipend based on subscriptions brought by us. The amount we get for subscriptions was different for different magazines, from 20rs to 100rs per subscription. The process to get the opportunity to be an intern at TOI was based on our merits.
Life at Somlalit is great & thriving. Every student can live the college life that they have ever dreamed about at Somlalit. Every year there are many events organized by college, like freshers party, Farewell party, cultural festival & management events where leading personalities of different sectors make their presence and share their views. For me, our fresher's party and the cultural festival were the best events I have ever attended in my life.
I have not applied or availed of any loan or scholarship. But many of the students from being a reservation category got scholarships from the government. Additional to the tuition fees these students were given an extra amounts for books and stationery expenses. Other than government scholarship, one can avail educational loan from banks and there would not be any issue as Somlalit is very reputed institute which makes it easy to get loan. And belive me the ROI in yourself will be very high.
The college campus is situated in the heart of Ahmedabad city, in the Navrangpura area. The size of the library is quite good, we can get any book related to our subjects and current affairs in this library. Wi-Fi facility for students was there in my college while my programme duration. You can use the college computer lab for any academic work but most of the students preferred to work on their personal laptops.
The college does not have any hostel or accommodation facility of its own. Students have to find accommodation facilities by themselves, but you can get help from the college administration about nearby PGs and accommodation facilities. There are many PGs and rental accommodations available in the college area, but they might be quite expensive, so most of the students choose to live in nearby areas that are less expensive and affordable.
Students became eligible for final placement from the 4th term of their study that is starting in the 2nd year. By the mid of the 5th term almost all the students are placed by the Place comm of the college. Wipro, Tech Mahindra, Infosys, Capgemini, HDFC bank, ICICI Bank, HCL tech, Aditya Birla Group are prominent recruiters. 95+ Companies visited the campus and the Higest package offered was 12.5 LPA and the Average package was 9 LPA.100% of students are placed by the college.
The final placements are quite average. The internships are very poor. The finance students are forced to apply for a sales profile that does not add any value to their skillset. Most of the companies which come for SIP do not even offer a stipend. Many students prefer to look for internships on their own. However, final placements are better. One can expect an average package of about 7.5 lakhs per annum.
College placements are considered good and the average placement figure stands around 15 lakhs. IRMA holds a record of 100% placement. the companies that visit the campus regularly are ITC, DCM Shriram, Emami, Grow Indigo, Mahyco, Amul, ICICI, SBI, Vivriti, yes Bank, BAIF, Grand Thompson, etc. The agricultural students generally have a preference in companies than the others
Placements are Okayish, summer placements' scenario are bad due to Covid, most students have internships with start-ups and due to covid, the stipend is also not really high. The final year placement is going good, the placement cell is completely student run but they are doing their best to get everyone placed. I personally got myself placed via my LinkedIn network. The final placement scenario is better than Summer Internships, most students have a package ranging 8-9 LPA.
The highest salary package offered at the final placement process is INR 55.8 LPA and the average salary package offered is recorded to be INR 26.12 LPA. A total of 153 companies have participated with 182 different roles in the placement process in 2020. The top recruiters are Boston Consulting Group, TCS, JP Morgan, Matrix Partners, Airtel, FinIQ, Amazon RPG Group, and Microsoft.
Can improve on faculties. Just 2-3 good experienced with good teaching skills. Should appoint new good teachers with no attitude problem and good teaching skills indeed.
Admissions are granted on the basis of merit in the CMAT exam. My CMAT score was pretty decent, but still, I have to wait for the second round of counselings. After that, I appeared for the interview round and Group discussion, which was pretty easy for me as I was practicing for the interview round and giving mock interviews.
Placements were okayish. Our institute had corporate tie ups with many reputable companies, which they used to invite for the campus placements. Packages offered were also good. the highest package went as high as 12 LPA, while the average package offered was of 4 LPA.
I took CAT , the score was 84.33 percentile. I was a mechanical engineer and was looking for opportunities which are sector specific and where i dont have to compete with B.Com or other graduates.
In terms of placement college is quite average not much high but PSU's do visit college like GAIL,IOCL,BPCL and than there are other IT firms like Infosys,wipro,accenture but no much of big names.
