LBSIM, New Delhi
VALUE FOR MONEY
College is good and can be considered value for money if prime focus is placement. However education is paramount than please consider Tier 1 college only.
CAT 93.3 percentile, was one of the best Tier two B school that time, have an option for IMI (for HR), IMT Nagpur, Nirma, KJ Somaiya and LBSIM for PGDM - Finance/Marketing. Chose LBSIM given similar/better placements among others, good words from coaching centers, and lowest fees. LBSIM was really for Marketing course.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Feasible, and that the best part of it. It was approx 3 lac fees for two year curriculum in 2007. Now it might have reached 5 lac but I believe it might still be on the lower side among the peer group
Except 2009 and 2010, placements were always on top. Even in 2009 and 2010 placements for Marketing jobs were great, it was actually doom for finance profile.
I might not be right person to comment on this as College has shifted its premises from RK Puram to Dwarka in 2011.
Alumnus network is growing with each passing year. College started in 1999 and after 16 batches, alumnus are all over there in the industry. Very helpful in placements.
Few of the full time faculties were awesome and they are still out there. However external expert faculty or industry experience of faculty was an area where it seems they are lacking. Overall it was an average faculty among other Tier 2 colleges. But this was all 6 years back in time, may they had overcome these lacuna over the period.
it was good overall. Clubs (Entrepreneurship, HR, Finance, etc), management fest, inter-college competition, cultural fests, national conferences, event management was all out there in abundance. You need to balance it out between priority and requirement
Sometime hectic and sometimes cool. Exam structure was a mix of classroom assignments, mid term exams, and end of term exams.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Overall Course curriculum was really very good, however how much you can make out of it really depends on your efforts. Competitive mindset and industry outreach perhaps the best thing out there in their curriculum.
Companies were all top notch companies in India for marketing and Finance domain. Prominent recruiters include Infosys, TCS, Crisil, DE Shaw, Dara Shaw, Deloitte, HDFC, etc.
There were around 2-3 fest ( cultural as well as Management fest) all over the year. In addition to that, 3-4 conferences i.e. HR conference, IT conference, National Conference were also held each year. This gives an industry exposure to connect with industry people as it was all organized by students starting organizing events to inviting industry experts.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
Education loan was easily available. College has some tie ups with nationalized as well as private banks.
