A small batch of 120. Decent reputation, especially in the South. 36 years young and has withstood the test of time. The college didn't advertise a lot unlike others and is very authentic. At my CAT score, this college seemed to be the best, given that I had already done my engineering down South.
I chose to major in Finance, mainly due to 2 reasons: a) Faculty b) Future. In the first year, I had one of the best teachers in Dr Sriraman who was followed by Dr Srikanth. In the 2nd year, we had a gem of a teacher in Mr Bangaruswamy. Rest of the faculty in finance was so so (but I am going to discount it a bit, due to the pandemic). The teacher to student ratio is pretty healthy especially in finance as limited students go for it.
BIM has maintained a 100% record when it comes to internships. Don't be surprised if the internships are without stipend but the projects could end up being pretty good. We have to do an Area of Interest Project as well, which I feel is a good opportunity for a student to explore which domain would one want to major in.
Campus placements are decent, especially when one talks about its authenticity and compares it to a lot of colleges in the country. We are associated with some good names like EY, Asian Paints, SBI, Vedanta, etc. The mean and median hover around 8.5 - 9.5 LPA mark. Last Highest: 15 LPA and Lowest: 5.5 - 6lpa. Roles offered may not be the best, but they are decent too.
Cost to study according to the kind of infrastructure is not worth it. The college needs to seriously improve its infrastructure to keep in pace with other top B Schools as BIM, Trichy is regarded as one of the top B-Schools. We don't get scholarships here. But yes, since it is BIM, one can avail the SBI Scholar Loan (0 collateral). The placements are decent. As in the median and average salary hovers around 8.5 - 9.5 LPA mark. We have corporate relations with some good companies, we are well respected and it's overall decent. For internships, we have had 100% placement, in executives almost 100% (Placements work both ways, student effort is primary). For internships, a lot of the projects would be without stipend, but the project could turn out to be good.
Like any other MBA, BIM also hosts a string of events all year round both Intra and Inter College. The Intra College events are really fun to take part in. In fact, BIM has now started hosting a full-throttle Management Fest, called Crescita. It also conducts Atheneum. And not to forget the Sports and Cultural events are really fun. The Library is decent but could do with some proper revamp. Classrooms, I feel need improvement. They are structured in a manner where its almost impossible to implement a case pedagogy, which is followed by IIMs and such institutes and its unfortunate because both the faculties and the students are capable. All the clubs are student-run, But when you go into the niti gritties of it, then there is heavy faculty and management involvement. BIM is yet to get its own Audi and labs like Finance Lab with terminals, Data Sc. labs, etc. Hope this happens soon. A lot of students are from South so language and culture is a barrier. Peer politics is prevalent.
Hostels are a 2 bedroom govt flat. The rooms are okayish. The bathrooms are small and dingy. So is the paint in the rooms. They look like proper govt flats from the 90s. Facilities are basic, but then it is a small chunk in the fees, so it's difficult to complain about it. Messcom has done a great job, as I found the food pretty decent. Though, if you are not from South and a vegetarian then you will face problems adapting.
Preparation for this round depends on the individual. One could maybe get affiliated to coaching institutes like TIME, etc. The process was pretty straight forward: GD followed by PI. I got an abstract GD topic, "Here and Now". My PI lasted 20 minutes or so and the process took place in IIFT, Delhi. It was pretty smooth, to be honest, not much hassle. Could communication be a problem, Most probably not.
We are eligible to attend the campus placements from the second year ( FOURTH SEMESTER). As I am in my first year, we have our internship for three months. As for the last batch, mostly all the students were placed during the first six months.
Since I'm in my 1st year of study, I am not eligible to share my very own experience in this. But as we all talk to our seniors who are currently facing placements I can share my knowledge regarding that. First of all, general management brings a lot of placement opportunities from various banking units, IT sectors and other related industries too. But for tourism management, the college hasn't been providing any placements in the core field but enables the opportunity for tourism management students to attend the placements along with general management students. This can be a pro for students who learned tourism management but yet wanna go into the general field and a con for students who want a job in the core. However, after finishing the course, you can get into luxury resorts, hotels, airways, cruises, event management sectors for job opportunities.
Placements are excellent. The standard of education is very good as all the teachers are well-experienced.The campus is maintained well and the food is good.The other factors are they offer all facilities i.e from bus to books to food, everything is taken care of.
Students have been placed under various specialisations and also in various departments.They have 100% placement guarantee for engineering students especially.
The course syllabus will be updated for each and every semester. The staffs will see to that they teach the topics necessary for the current trends. The staffs really put their effort into creating the contents to teach. Each and every case study will be a recent and updated one.
My MBA program was one of the finest programs offered by our institute which triggered the blending of different cultures. We got to visit many MNCs during our corporate visits and interacted with different people. Our college believes in the celebration of life and almost all the festivals are celebrated with utmost joy. My personal favorite was Pongal Celebration. All of our labs were digitized and had all the advanced tools for an advanced learning experience.
My experience with the SSM institute was pretty exceptional. I would definitely recommend this institute for whosoever is looking to pursue a masters degree in Chennai. Admissions are on the basis of MAT scores.
