Ques. Which is better, TISS or IMT Ghaziabad?

● Top Answer By Anil Tigga on 12 Apr 21

Ans. Based on the specializations of both the institutes, they are leagues apart. The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) is solely meant for courses in social services whereas IMT Ghaziabad is a business school providing PGDM which is equivalent to MBA. Going by your comparison, it is clear that your question is for HRM & LR at TISS which is an MA degree in Human Resource Management & Labour Relations. Although, it totally depends on your pool of interest that which course you want to go for, here are some comparisons to look for : IMT Ghaziabad is renowned for its marketing and it is one of the best colleges for marketing. So, if you are looking for corporate job roles then yes, IMT is the best choice. TISS is renowned for social services and it has clearly made its position among top colleges in the country.  If you have budget constraints, go for TISS which has a program fee of about 3 lacs including everything. IMT Ghaziabad is costly with about 19.53 lacs program fee as of 2021. TISS usually has a small batch size of 60-68 students. Whereas, IMT has a huge batch size of 450. The average placement package in TISS is really good at about 21.15 LPA, as of the 2020 batch. Coming to IMT, the average package is about 12-14 LPA due to the huge batch size. At the end of the day, what matters the most is your interest and fervor for the subject. Unless you are very much inclined to the marketing and corporate industry, choose TISS which is economically friendly and also returns with a good placement package.Read more

Ques. TISS at Mumbai is a famed institute. Why should a person opt for it? What career and personal goals one should set once he/she joins it? Is this a better choice compared to IIM Shillong?

● Top Answer By Aishwarya Bhatnagar on 05 Feb 21

Ans. Comparing TISS with renowned B-schools such as - XLRI (Jamshedpur), IIM (Shillong) will show that it is at par with them. TISS is one of the premier institutes in the Social sciences department. TISS, as a research institute is well equipped. The graduation degree is of standard quality as well, it will be worth your time and money. At TISS, HR is not amongst the highlighted courses. It is Social Work and other public policy and development related courses that are at the forefront. HR, as a course, is parallel to the management side of the education TISS has included it in the course list. Apart from HR, TISS also has another management program which is the Social Entrepreneurship course. Now, let’s sum up the plus points of TISS, as the best-selected option: NAAC Accreditation 'A' (It has been rated as the best university for Social Sciences in India) Faculty Best HR faculty in India; Extremely helpful and encouraging professors. Placement Percentage (2020)  80-90% Highest CTC INR 32LPA. (Its recruitment standards are equal to XLRI PMIR) Average CTC 20.60 LPA Recruiting Companies KPMG, Urban Management Centre, Amazon, CitiBank, etc. Best courses HR; MPH; MHA TISS, when it comes to HR, is definitely a more suitable option than IIM Shillong. However, a comparison cannot be set between the two colleges, in totality. Both of these educational institutes have different specialization courses. Therefore, a common leveling ground is absent. These are the stand-out features of TISS but a comparison with the IIMs is not justified, as they both deal with different subject matters at different levels.Read more

Ques. Which one is better: IIM Lucknow or TISS HRM?

● Top Answer By Supriya Kolli on 03 Feb 21

Ans. IIM Lucknow and TISS HRM are different in terms of course structure and placements. TISS HRM offers better placements in human resource management. Whereas IIM Lucknow provides better jobs in various fields like marketing, finance, general management, consulting, etc. Specialization - HR:  If HR is your first priority, then go for TISS.  Companies and firms prefer TISS over IIMs to recruit students for their HR vacancies. Although there might be some HR options at IIML, you will not find diverse job profiles of options in IIML.  Located in the heart of Mumbai, TISS has fewer students. Thus, it offers good salaried HR jobs to students. Deciding Factors: One must take into account his/her aims and goals, before choosing between these two colleges. The following factors must be taken into consideration while choosing. Both the institutes provide decent salaried jobs to students. Human Resource jobs might offer less salary at the starting and midpoints. However, the salary differs from companies to companies. After gaining a good amount of experience in the field, this difference in companies will hardly matter. You should ask yourself if you want a revenue target-oriented job like marketing and finance or something which has less pressure like HR. HR jobs are less stressful as they don’t have such targets. HR work involves indirect revenue generation. The HR job starts with recruitment and after gaining experience it involves compensation management, training, and development, organization design, etc. Thus, you have to decide if you want direct or indirect involvement in revenue generation.  MBA in HR is a specialized degree thus, you may not be able to go to other fields with this degree later in your career. So, take all these factors into consideration before choosing an institute among these two.Read more

Ques. Which one is better, an M.A. in Education (Elementary) from TISS or from Azim Premji University?

● Top Answer By Bhawna Vedwal on 01 Feb 21

Ans. Tata Institute of Social Science (TISS) offers M.H.A, PGD, MA, B.Ed courses. Azim Premji University offers BA, MA, L.L.M, B.Sc. courses. A friend of mine recommended M.A in Education from Azim Premji University(APU) as it is better, considering various aspects:  Faculty: Azim Premji University includes faculty from all over the world. Eminent educationists like Aman Madan, ex faculty of TISS and Rohit Dhankar are now part of the renowned faculty of APU. Infrastructure: Both the universities are well known for their state of the art infrastructure, with the APU campus being a marvel in progress and will have an even more of a competitive edge against other universities. Diversity: The geographic diversity among students is well matched in both TISS and APU, with their campuses being colloquially dubbed as “Mini India”. On one hand, TISS focuses more on reservation and representation from each state and a majority of the urban student population. On the other hand, APU encompasses an urban to rural student population ratio of 50:50. Field Connection: The Field experience in both institutes are considered exemplary. TISS is known for giving the field exposure of working in various NGOs, experience of working in rural areas and slums whereas APU gives field experience at NGOs as well as at Azim Premji Foundation, an umbrella body for all NGOs. Financial Support: At TISS, financial assistance is provided on the basis of reservation and APU provides financial assistance on the basis of economic status. Economic status is confirmed through a field visit by a team of APU to the student’s home to confirm their candidature for financial support. At APU, all students in need of financial support can avail scholarships and also many students take up side jobs to earn extra money while pursuing studies.  In conclusion, TISS is known for its legacy of many famous social workers, but APU is favoured now by those who are education oriented.Read more

Ques. Which one is better: IIM Lucknow or TISS HRM?

● Top Answer By Bhawna Vedwal on 29 Jan 21

Ans. Comparing these institutes and choosing which is better is difficult. As both institutes offer entirely separate value propositions. IIM Lucknow mainly offers jobs in the domain of marketing, operations, finance, general management, and consulting, whereas, TISS provides the best jobs only in HR. Comparison:  If you are interested in HR, then TISS HRM is the best choice. The MNCs that go to this institute to recruit HRs for their organizations. Due to the smaller batch size and locational advantage, TISS offers better HR job profiles.  During the interview session in IIMs, you may pitch for the role of HR, but you will not get the different options for HR roles at IIM.  About HR Job roles: Following are some facts about HR jobs have been highlighted. At the initial stage and mid-level of HR jobs, the payscale is lower. After reaching the top-management level, this marginal difference will come to an end. The HR roles are comparatively less stressful than the jobs in finance, marketing, and GM domain. The HR jobs indirectly generate the company revenue. But as there is no direct participation, this job is less stressful. The responsibilities in the HR job profile involve training & development, compensation management, and design of the organization. You need to decide which line of work you want to be involved in, core business functions, line functions or HR.  Thereby, considering the above facts, the decision depends on you. If you want to perform in the core business functions, then IIM Lucknow is the better choice. At the same time, if you have a passion for becoming an HR, then TISS HRM is better.Read more
