    REMARKS

    IIM Bangalore is one of the finest colleges in the country that truly test your capabilities in every sense. It is not easy to reach here and it is equally challenging to sustain here. We learn most from the network of batchmates, senior as well as Junior

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    CAT, 99 percentile, IIM Bangalore is one of the best MBA institutes in the country. It was a no brainer. Moreover, I was already working in Bangalore, so it was an easy transition.

  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    It has now turned expensive. It was 9 Lakhs when I joined. It has gone up now. However considering the fact that IIM grads earn quite handsomely after their degrees, it is quite manageable unless you want to launch a startup. I would still call it feasible.

    CAMPUS LIFE

    Campus life was very enriching as we had a diverse group of batchmates who came from different background and were already quite accomplished. There were fewer girls though. We had a regular L Square party in campus and there were clubs which held interviews for selection. The group has diverse socio-economic background though elite class dominated.

  • EXAM STRUCTURE

    It was Extremely hectic like Mission Impossible with many surprise quizes, exams, mid terms, end terms, projects, presentations and case studies.We always had some of the other deadlines for one of the above activities. I would manage only few hours of sl

    COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

    Curriculum is very well designed but it's quite theoretical. Entrepreneurship should go beyond case studies. After I started my non-profit, I was not prepared by the very basics like chosing the financial model of my organization and procedure to get it registered. Research wise it is far better than any other Indian Institutes but doesn't stand anywhere when compared with Harvard / Wharton / Kellogs etc.

It's gud but depending on the students how he can prepare and utilize the time and available resources. Many students who are away from parents they do time pass and at last blame on schools and teachers. So utilize the time and score good marks.

My KIMS College Review

Remarks -

My journey with the KIMS college was pretty eccentric. I learned a lot, gained a lot and all the while enjoying myself. Finance being my major area of concern, helped me get a better grasp of the things and methods of financial management. College infrastructure, in fact, the entire campus was lit with positive vibes uplifting your mood and providing an ideal setup for learning. Extracurricular activities were limited though, but it helped us dedicate more time to learning.

Paypal, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, Concentrix, etc. are some of the companies which visit our campus on a regular basis. Our college maintains close tie-ups with different organizations and invites them for the campus placements. They also offer personality development and soft development programs, which also include mock interviews, etc. The packages offered are also pretty great as well. Apart from the placement assistance, placement cell also assists in the personality development of the students. Average packages were around 3 LPA.

My Journey with Oxford College of Business Management

Placement -

Placement rate of our college is good. Close to 80% of students from a batch get placed each year in the campus placement. Banks like HDFC, ICICI, and firms like HCL visit a college for campus placement. In case one wants to explore good opportunities outside then one can get placement on his own as well. Many of the seniors have got good placement then the campus placement offers on their own. In terms of the internship, the college has a student exchange program which is with the foreign university, however, if you want to do an internship in core areas then you have to manage on your own.
