Management is not upto the mark. One can clearly feel the politics infrastructure is one of the unique and one could not related it to any regular PGDM college. Yes one can spend 2 years with enjoy and can learn a lot in different ways.
I was appeared for CAT and scored 88.91% percentile. I have four options but i chooses IMDR because of its culture and low fees. There are in total four rounds of interview happened in Pune. Team work round where we were given plastic blocks and we have to build a campus then there is an personal behaviour round. Afterward there was Excel test and essay test.
Course structure is really good with lots of emphasis is given on Self learning. It is well distributed in six trimesters. Internal faculty is average but external faculty is very good, they are very seniors most of them passed out from IMDR only having 10+years of experience.
Internship experience was average as there are only few companies visited the campus. I was placed for AC Nielson for Market Research project with a stipend of 4000 Rupees although i did not join and came back to my hometown Delhi and completed my Internship with Big Bazaar.
We have a batch of 46 persons almost all of them are placed except few who does not want to get placed and wanted to start their own business. Some big companies like Nomura,TCS,Tata technologies,Tata Motors,Novartis,Berger paints,Bajaj Allianz and HDFC came to the campus and hires numerous students. Package varies from 3.6-6 Lakhs per annum.
There is Induction program organized by seniors where Juniors learn to experience lots of stuff. Sanskriti program is organized by College where people from different states introduced their culture. Alumni meetings are main course of attraction which lasted for 2 days with lots of programs. Various small culture programs also introduced in between.
No there is no such scholarships in our college.
Campus life is one of the best as people from different parts of India joined this college one can easily find people from Punjab to Chennai. Gender wise there are 2 females per 3 boys. Computer labs are average. Library is one of the best in Pune. Lots of competitions are organized specially sports and participants participate in lots of State level competitions.
Hostels are available only for Boys. Hostel rooms are very ordinary and triple sharing basis. Fees is very less and bathrooms have to shared between 10 people. PG's are easily available but cost of living is high nearby college area with 1BHK could easily go upto 15-20K. PGs are available at 7-8k per person.
College seniors are one of the best. They are very helpful during placements and internships and sharing their wisdom. I learned a lot by sharing some quality time with them. Apart from Education they also help in accomodation as well.
The students become eligible from trim 5 for campus placements. The average package offered is around 10L. The approximate companies that visited the campus were 50-60 and the highest package received in the 2021 batch is 22 lacs p.a. 100% batch is placed for summers as well as for final placements and the role offered is also good.
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.
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.
