The admission process for me began in the month of February last year, it was a one day process that included the Group Discussion and Personal Interview rounds, and was conducted smoothly by the college authorities in my city. The reasonable fee structure makes the ROI attractive and made me choose this Institute over others. I read a lot of reviews on Quora at the time of selecting this Institute.

The student would be eligible for placement after their second semester. The companies that visited the campus included Bandhan Bank and Axis Bank. The average package has been around 3 lac per annum. Around 40 percent of the student got placed. My plan is to get a job in content writing.
One of the positive fact is if anyone got chance of admission in this college has a high chance of placement. The college environment is also very good along with the behaviours of all of our faculties.
The financial burden in Department of Business management is minimum and does not bother anybody. However I would rather say that the entire course of Management should be mostly Practical then theoretical. Marking schemes should change as More emphasis should be given on day to day project analysis and assignments.
