The points on which I paid attention before choosing this college - 1. Faculty - The faculty of IMT Nagpur is at par with any of the IIMs. They got a NIRF ranking of 97%. 2. Infrastructure - The infrastructure of a place is important as it is a very important component to generate ideas, playfulness, etc. IMT Nagpur has playgrounds and courts for most of the sports. They have a canteen, mess, hostel for students, and on-campus residence for faculties, LRC - The resource center is one of the biggest in India. LRC is highly equipped with all the required material for any management student. 3. Legacy - IMT Nagpur, in only a decade, has been able to make space among the top B-Schools in India. An IMT-DNA of quality and continuous innovation, world-class infrastructure and campus, and a great blend of academicians and practitioners-turned-academicians make the institute unique. My decision of choosing IMT Nagpur so far has been justified and satisfactory.
The course curriculum and faculty are at par with any of the IIMs apart from IIM - ABC. The faculty is one of the USPs of our Institution. Most of them hold doctorate with vast Industrial and academics experience. We have books from the best publishers from the Management domain. The curriculum is vast enough to give us knowledge about every subject related to our specialization. Insitute's LRC is one of the biggest among all the educational institutions of the country. We had all the exams, classes on time. Not even a single class was canceled without any prior notice. All our trimesters were well scheduled. We used to get our weekly timetables before the weekend. We can plan our entire week accordingly. The examinations were well scrutinized and conducted even on the online platforms. The support team remained active and helpful throughout. We didn't face any difficulties as such. There are procedures to appear for re-examination and re-checking of paper without any cost.

The course fee is 12,10,000 for the two years residential PGDM Programme. Due to the pandemic and AICTE guidelines, the college has not increased the fees for the last 2 years. We were given a minimal financial allowance for the months in which college remain closed.

The campus infrastructure is highly equipped and available with all the facilities. It is been spread on 27 acres known as 'Lush-Green Cmapus', away from the city and at par with any of the new or baby IIMs. As they say, IMT never sleeps and that is as true as the fact that the 'Sun is of yellow color'.

The rooms are with single and double occupancies. IMT-N has set up ultra-modern hostel facilities along with other facilities, both for men and women. The academic programmes are fully residential and the college takes care of the accommodation needs of the incumbent students. The hostel facilitates and imbibes a culture of sharing, caring, and learning.

A large, modern kitchen with steam cooking is attached to the mess hall. A bakery and ice-cream-making unit is attached to the mess.

The mess food is filled with nutrition and variety. We used to have food from almost every region of the country and special dinners at festivals. The menu gets changed every week.
There were two faculty members in each panel and there were 6-7 panels. I gave the interview in the very last phase and the medium for my interview was online. So, I had PI only with the esteemed professors of the Institue, one of them was from Marketing and another one from Business Law (that I got to know after joining the college). My PI lasted for 25 minutes and they asked me all the questions related to my CV, hobby, interest areas, work experience, academics, future plans, why MBA. I thoroughly enjoyed the interview as it was a wholesome experience mixed with nervousness, meticulousness and communication. They made me comfortable and the coordinator from the college was very supportive and approachable. I prepared for the interview through some interview videos available on YouTube. I used to record my voice while answering the question while preparing for PIs. As I am a camera conscious person, so I later started to practice and record on a laptop and rectified all my mistakes.

Sinhgad was one of the best colleges of my time. In 2018 Sinhgad was awarded for the most number of placements. I chose this college due to its reputation and placement records. If you really want to study and get knowledge, then Sinhgad is the right place. The teaching staff is really good, and they are very helpful. The admission process is fully based on the merit list of MH CET. The eligible ones can directly visit College Office for admission. One of the most important points for preferring this college over other colleges is the regular lectures. The college is very strict about attendance and regular lectures.
College provides internship opportunities to all the specialization students and the important part is it provides paid internships to most of the students. Companies like TATA, talent serve,Atlas, Tenhard , Smruti IMF are some of the companies that come for internship
I chose this course because sports management is a growing field and only a few colleges offer them and KJ seemed best. There are different faculties for every different subject and each one of them is specialists in the field of sports and well trained professionals. The teaching method is 60% practical and 40% theoretical. Two exams are held per semester, one is an internal assessment practical test and one final written test. It was very easy to pass as far as one is dedicated.
Our college faculties having 10-15 years of experience. The faculties of our college are the best. They are always there to help and support us. Most of the faculties are p.hd holders and well experienced. There is one mentor for every 15 students to guide us and support us.
After semester third the students become eligible for placements. The highest domestic package is 18 lakhs and the highest international package is 54 lakhs. The institute says 100% placement to students. The plans after getting the degree are to be a better entrepreneur
My overall experience at this college was good. Our college was well facilitated with a gym, sports facilities, hostel, transport facilities, wifi, canteen, etc. The campus life was great. I had a really good time, while I was studying at this college.
I don't have any bad remarks but yes, if I had an opportunity to be a part of it in any way, I would not stay behind. You never know the kind of learning, fun, exposure you gain, with that. I learn till now, and will continue to learn something or the other, till I can. My extrovert and open nature, my outspoken personality (though little) has come only during those 2 years. Before that I was very reserved, calm and bookworm.
There is nothing bad about this college. As I mentioned above everyone was very helpful and cooperative in nature, right from my seniors to faculty members and support staff of the college. Even our Dean and director was a highly qualified person however they always behaved in friendly manner and always helped students if they have any issues right from personal problems to economical issues. Overall this college is simply great in it's own league.
