REVIEWING ETHIRAJ COLLEGE AND MBA DEPARTMENT
The college is good and carries a very good brand name. Sadly, nobody was aware of the pathetic condition of the MBA department and how poorly the students were being treated. Even if we tell, nobody believed us. Ethiraj college carries an image of a fun to go place.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
It is feasible. Good thing is, there is no donation asked. It was slightly less when compared to other colleges offering the same course. Also, there is no discount in the education quality offered and the college has a brand name of its own.
Placements and intership were not up to the mark. Hardly 2 to 3 companies come. Even if the company is not good, students are forced to join, just because they have come to the college. One company offered internship offer for 12 hour work and stipend was 5000 Rs.
Alumni students were afraid to talk anything about the department. They had escaping out of jail feeling. They did not even want to visit for alumni meet. Hardly 2 to 3 people would come. They were those, who treated the professors favourably and they got the same treatment in return.
They were quite strict, biased, and well educated. They treat you well, only if you keep praising them, give them food, invite them for house functions. They hold grudges and take revenge. If they sense slightest disrespect, they will purposely scold you, give you punishments, taunt you.
Sports event, entrepreneur day, computer lab were present. These things were not exclusive for the MBA department. They belonged to the UG classes and whenever it was free, we made use of it. Sometimes, we felt embarassed that as seniors, we had to use what was left out and remaining of the UG classes. We felt left out in the college.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculum is good, updated and suitable to the current need. They add extra skill based classes for the students to get an upper hand in the industry. It is a two year course, divided by 6 months semester.
Paradigm, Shrishti are the prominent events. Paradigm is exlusive for MBA department and all the efforts are put by the students. Srishti is a all UG classes event.Other than that, farewell, founders day, teachers day, children's day are celebrated.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
It was a premium course, so scholarship and loan facility was not offered. We were not even aware of any such scholarship offered by Government for such courses. We got this response, even when we enquired about it to the college department.
