10.0 /10

Remarks :

The international linkages of my college is excellent. There are student exchange programs, international summer and winter internships, international collaborations and international study tours. Over the past years, it has witnessed 100% students opting for international tours in Europe, China, Malaysia and Singapore. Japan is the most sought after destination for winter internship in PGDM. These linkages have enabled the students to become globally aware and work on the global upfront.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Course curriculum The university follows a contemporary curriculum. The First Year of the course starts with a coverage of Foundation Subjects which impart a sound knowledge of the essential functional areas of business. In the Second Year, the emphasis shifts to elective courses, which are designed to give the students as wide a choice as possible, to specialize in areas of their interest and acquire advanced knowledge and skills. The trimester system is followed with a project dissertation in the final semester. The value oriented courses such as business policy, business ethics and ethics and environmental issues are also taught to make the students a socially responsible citizens. Keeping in mind the growth of IT Industry, current topics related to Big Data, Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things are also included in the program. We need to do a compulsory summer project that spread over eight weeks between fisrt and second year that enables us to practically apply the theory learned in the class. The focus is on the development of soft skills like leadership, interpersonal skills, verbal and written communication as well. We are exposed to live projects while studying that results in holistic development of each of us.

Placement Experience :

PlacementsThere is a mandatory internship which is known as Socially Useful and Productive Activity to help us understand the working of NGOs and provide exposure for appreciation of social issues. I was a part of winter internship program at Audencia, France. We were also given the opportunity to do summer internship at Nagoya University, Japan. The placement committee works tirelessly to serve as a medium between industries and students. Companies used to come for per-placement talk in the campus and used to provide the pre-placement offer to the students who have done internship with them. 44% of females were placed as compared to 56% males. The maximum students placed are from finance background followed by operations. In my senior batch, total 93 students were placed out of 95 eligible students. The percentage of the students placed was 97.83%. Some of the top recruiters include KPMG, Hitachi, Tata, Deloitte, Infosys, Wipro, Ultratech, Continental and TCS. The maximum package stands at INR 18 LPS while the average is INR 6.3 LPA.

The incubation center and Empressario club are set up to boost entrepreneurship in the campus. The research projects are funded by these centers. There are building excellence programs organized at the campus, CSR activities are organized with the guest lectures on CSR importance in management.

The HR student club known as HRUDAY organizes business fests along with HR talks. X-SEED is the social club of the institute which undertakes social activities that add value to the society. I was the part of the X-SEED in my first year and helped the club in its social projects. Rotaract Club organizes fun activities drawing on cultural diversities in the campus. It is the most active club of the institute. All these clubs play an integral part in the personality development of an individual.

Hostel Facilities :

Hostel There is a separate hostel facility for boys and girls. The rooms are neat and tidy. The meals are provided 4 times a day. There is tuck shop, bookshop, cafeteria and sports room for the hostel students. There are cultural nights that take place once in a month where all the hostilities meet and greet each other. It is one of the most beautiful memories of my college life.

Admission :

AdmissionAfter completing my BBA, I decided to choose a different path. Most of my batch mates took admission in MBA. But I decided to pursue graduate diploma in management. I checked online through various college websites. Finally I came across Xavier?s site and looked the course. Located in the heart of the Hi-Tech Park in Kalamassery just off the well-known HMT Road in Kochi. It has its branch in Bengaluru and Chennai as well but I decided to apply to Kochi campus. The eligibility criteria includes minimum 50% aggregate marks in bachelor?s degree in any discipline from the recognized university. The entrance test score of 75 percentile and above was required in either CAT, XAT, CMAT, MAT, GMAT or ATMA. However the Kochi campus gave a flexibility to students and any student with 60 percentile and above in the entrance exam can apply to the campus. I applied online by filling the application form. I scored 82 percentile in CAT so I qualified the entrance round. This was followed by the Group discussion and personal interview which was scheduled in 7 major Indian cities- New Delhi, Kochi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Kolkata. I appeared in the GD/PI round in New Delhi and it went good. The cumulative list was out within a week and my name appeared in the first list. Finally I paid the first installment that confirmed my admission.

Faculty :

FacultyAll the faculty members are renowned individuals of the subjects. There are regular and visiting faculty. The regular faculty teaches us the core courses while the visiting faculty teaches us the electives and organizes workshops and seminars on the daily basis. Some of them are the chairman of the top Indian industries. They guide us and support us in our projects and research. Some of them are currently pursuing Ph.D. from the university as well. They take our tutorials and give on the field experience.
