Overall college is very good given the amount of fees. It is unique in various manners and students learn a lot. One can enjoy their life and also learn in unique manners. Definitely recommended.
I took CAT exam and scored 89%percentile. I had four options and i choose this college because of less fees and self learning structure course.
Course is very unique given the fact that they emphasized on Self learning. Course is build in the manner that everyone can learn about themselves and found the best for them.
College internship was good most of the companies visited the campus and almost 60% of the students placed. Rest of the students also got placed by themselves. I joined AC nielsen,market research company and i was offered market research projects in marketing area.General stipend varies- usually 6-7k per month. I was paid 11k for two months and it was great learning experience.

Juniors were welcome as Induction program organized by seniors where they get to know about the college and several small functions organized during the same special one was Sanksriti where every student from different state participated and showcase their regional festivities and functions. Several parties are also organized during the tenure. We have special fest where students participate in various competitions and also blood donation programme. Apart from that students participate in various functions of other colleges as well.
Main thing about the college is their fees which is very less during my tenure. However i learned that it has increased during recent years. Still it is very much feasible given the status of the college. It is 41 years old college and average fees is approximate 2 lacs for both years.
No scholarship or loan facility is offered by our college however as fees is very less as compare to normal MBA fees. So no loan is required in almost all the cases.
Campus life is good students from all the states are there from jammu & Kashmir to Tamil nadu. One can spend some quality time as infrastructure is uniquely designed. Extracurricular is good as one can enjoy some quality time at table tennis room,carrom board room and plays sports like badminton etc in campus itself. IMDR is part of Fergusson college so other sports like Football and Cricket usually played there. Labs are well equipped and library is one of the best in Pune. Students usually participate in National and state competitions in sports,debates and MBA related competitions.
This is where college lacks hostel is somewhat shabby and most of the students don's prefer. Hostel seats are few as well however the fees of the hostel is very less. It was approximate 2000 at my time. There is no mess for the college students. PG and rental facilities are easily available and 90% of the students prefer those only. It is affordable depending upon the area one lives. cost of the food can varies from 40-100 per meal and there are several mess around the college where one can enjoy good quality food. Rent varies from 8-15k for 1 BHk and 15-20k for 2 BHK where 4-6 students normally stays.
Alumni network is superb as it is 41 years college alumni of IMDR varies from President in Yes Bank to administrator in White house. Alumni meets organized every year for 2 days where most of the alumni comes and share their experience. Apart from that alumni portals are also there and one can register and take advantage of seniors knowledge.
Exams are really god and it varies from subject to subject where every teacher has its own method of conducting the exam. Some of them are only assignment and practical based,1-2 are open book tests. Usual method is assignment of 40 marks and 60 marks of final exam. Computer labs are well equipped and enough computers are there to help the students,excel and SAP tests are conducted in lab in proficient manner.
Internal Faculty is good but visiting faculty is excellent some of them are very experience having experience of more than 15-20 years. Most of them focused on practical knowledge and not on theoretical.
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.

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.
