XLRI XSM, Jamshedpur

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

  • 9.3/10Ratings

    REMARKS

    Fantastic college, facilities, atmosphere, faculty and peer network. Only disadvantage that the campus faces is that it is located in Jamshedpur, so it means a fair bit of travel to reach there from Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore or Hyderabad.

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    I gave the XAT exam for entering XLRI. XLRI's HR Progam is its flagship program, which led me to choose it.

  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    It is quite expensive as it is not subsidized by the government in places such as the IIMs. In my batch, 2012-14, the fees for the 2-year program was INR 13.5 lakhs. Add to this the costs of travel and other spends. The senior batch had fees of INR 12 or 13 lakhs and the junior batch had fees of INR 17.5 lakhs.

  • 10 /10Ratings

    PLACEMENT WING

    The batch witnessed a 100% placement ratio. Companies from all industries visited campus. A sample set includes FMCG (HUL, P&G, ITC, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Marico, Colgate, L'Oreal, etc.), Consulting (McK, BCG, Accenture), BFSI (Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse, UBS, etc.) among others.

  • ADMISSION

    Notification was released in August of 2011, Procured the form from the bank; sent the filled form; had to apply separately for the different colleges which fall under the ambit of XAT (such as XLRI, XIM B, LIBA, GIM, etc.), gave the exam, was called for a panel interview and a group discussion. After all this, the selected student's list was announced in April/ May 2012.

  • 8/10Ratings

    HOSTEL FACILITIES

    In the first year, we had to share a room between two people. In the second year, we did get independent rooms. Though they have constructed new hostels by the time we were about to leave campus. The infrastructure is fantastic. The food is good. Obviously, with mess food being repetitive, it may come across as ordinary on some occasions and sometimes it was ordinary but it was good overall.

  • ALUMNI

    Strong and passionate alumni network. XLRI alumni currently are part of the who's who of the HR fraternity globally. Examples include Leena Nair (Global CHRO Unilever), Rakesh Kapoor (Global CEO, Reckitt Benckiser), Naveen Jindal (Serial Entrepreneur and Founder CEO of Moon Express)

  • 9 /10Ratings

    FACULTY

    Most of the faculty have done their doctorate programs and are very well qualified with a good professor-student ratio. There was even international faculty like Dr. Richard Sibbernson, an American and former top executive at AT&T Bell Labs who taught us International HRM.

  • CAMPUS LIFE

    Campus life was fun to say the least. Lots of extracurricular activity, especially sports. Events throughout the year with each association organizing an event. SPICMACAY, SIGMA and CII Yi also organize a bunch of events. A lot of case study competitions happen on campus which lead to PPIs and PPOs.

  • EXAM STRUCTURE

    There is high academic rigor during the entire two-year program. The internal assessments are a set of multiple assessments, projects, quizzes and other submissions and group tasks. There would be hectic days because, in addition to the tests, there would be different associations for students to participate in.

  • 10 /10Ratings

    COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

    Well Structured curricula, fantastic professors who are renowned in that field (like Dr. PK Padhi for Labour Laws, Prof. Gurunathan for Compensation, Dr. Sumatoke Bagchi for Performance Management, etc.) Electives were interesting including HR Analytics, International HRM, Introduction to Social Entrepreneurship, etc.

  • INTERNSHIPS OPPORTUNITIES

    Yes, the college had a fantastic Summer Internship Placement program (Called SIP for short). The placement committee organized it over 4 days on campus when the best recruiters across industries had come to the campus to recruit students. At the time (2013), average monthly stipends varied between INR 30,000 to INR 80,000, with a few outliers.

  • 10 /10Ratings

Remarks -

The college helps to enhance interpersonal and communication skills as there are presentations and group discussions for the internal assessment. The air conditioned classrooms provide comfort to the students. The college provides opportunities to the students to showcase their talent. It's the best university among all other colleges in Jharkhand.


Placement -

Since the college is newly opened its been only 3 years that the college has opened in Jharkhand, it is a little difficult to get the top companies. But there are a few good companies who have visited the college for placement. A MBA senior got a package of 10 LPA from Byjus. It also depends on the students. They gave to give their best because even if the college brings the best companies, it's the students to need to put in their efforts and give good results. The placement of MBA is quite average. The average package offered is around 3-5 LPA.

Amity provides exposure to the outside world and it also prepares the students to deal with the competitive world.Amity gives more of practical knowledge which is so much better than any other college. The faculty in Amity is genuinely serious about the student's academic development and they work hard to ensure that each student would thrive when they go out in the industry. Amity helps student's in uplifting their passion and showcasing their talents by providing various opportunities.


Placement -

The placement is not satisfactory. Amity being a well known and reputed college is not justifying it's value. Placements in amity University Jharkhand are very poor. The average package offered is around 3-5 LPA.

A great college

Remarks -

The college is very economical. The return on investment is great. Faculty support is also good. The infrastructure is limited which is compensated by the college being at a central location Aka heart of the city. The lalpur area is nearby where people come to try out the eateries and shop a little. Neuclus mall is just nearby which is the largest mall of Ranchi and a hotspot for hanging out of the young generation.

Remarks -

I chose IIM Ranchi because of its exceptional track record in terms of placement and holistic development of it's students who are widespread among states and countries. Also the strong academic curriculum and top class facilities, also it's association with reputed leaders who visit the college for delivering lectures as visiting faculty or guest speakers. Not only the strong industrial connect was the reason but also the plethora of opportunities that the institute provide in terms of cultural events, sports etc, influenced me to chose IIM Ranchi for my MBA.


Placement -

Another perk of IIM Ranchi is it's exceptional placement record. In the 10 years of delivering the brightest minds to the corporates, we have enjoyed certain long term association with may of the leading companies in the country. With a 100% placement record year after year, IIM Ranchi has always ensured a stable career for it's students, irrespective of the market dynamics.

Journey with the ICFAI

Remarks -

We learned a lot from the curriculum and the college itself. My journey was a mixed bag of feelings with many sweet and sour moments. The classroom sessions were fun and so were the field visits and management activities like webinars or mock marketing competitions.

IMS is located in the heart of Capital of Jharkhand Ranchi surrounded by Parks and greenery. College is good. I can give 8 out of 10. It's not like IIMs or other prestigious colleges but it is nice college to explore your inner talent.
