This course I chose because I wanted to pursue management right after my BBA, There is one faculty per 55 students which is a good number. Teachers are minimum PhD from prestigious institutes of the country and abroad. Each one has their own teaching skills and is mostly good. Exams are very frequent with even quicker quizzes. The difficulty level is generally above average but a lot of learning is involved.
I choose MBA in marketing as it's one of the Courses I have always wanted to pursue and opt for marketing as my career. It is a 2-year full-time residential course. These faculties are highly knowledgable with PhD qualifications. Their teaching methods are unique and understandable.
I chose marketing as majors and analytics as minor. In the first year of my college, I gain an interest in marketing and I was good at maths. And also faculty of marketing is good in IIM Amritsar. The same was the case with Analytics.
I chose MBA because I had a keen interest in marketing and management. IIM Amritsar is known for its Marketing hence I chose it. Each class consists of different batch sizes, on the basis of the electives and the subject choose. But it never exceeds 45 students per section. All the faculties are highly qualified with experience in the industry as well as in teaching, which is the cherry on top. Almost all the faculties are PhDs from IIM A, B, C, K, I. Teaching methods differ from teacher to teacher because you are taught by a renowned teacher, and you get to learn from their conventional teaching experiences like stimulation game, case study, real industry examples, and issues incurred. Most of the teachings are usually practical-based and relatable to the existing market. Terms stand for 3 months each and exams are held either as midterms or just end terms. Passing the exam is subjective because a GPA system considers all the academic. So, a student who is working constantly scores well.
IIM Amritsar MBA curriculum is designed to provide foundational functional knowledge in the first year and it offers integrative and specialization courses in the second year. The first-year curriculum includes a preparatory program, orientation program, first-year courses and summer internship. In the second year, students can choose from specializations namely marketing, finance and accounting, information systems and analytics, production and quantitative methods, human resource management and economics according to their preference.
Master in Business Administration is an essential step towards a prominent career. The program at IIM is of global perspective and entrepreneurial acumen. Faculty at IIM Amritsar is excellent with experience in their respective fields. All the teaching staff have completed their PhD and still working on their research program. The exams were conducted at the end of each semester in the course period of 2 years.
The course curriculum is designed in a way to impart foundational functional knowledge of management in the first year and offers integrative and specializations courses in the second year.

IIM Amritsar offers a major in Marketing, Analytics, HR, Operation, and Finance. The student to faculty ratio is great with a wide range of faculty coming from different institutions such as RBI, IIMs, XLRI, etc.
The course includes field such Data Analytics, HR, Digital Marketing, Marketing and Operation, which is really a wide gamut of the domain which really intrigued me as a student. All the faculty have relevant work experience coupled with a Ph.d degree which really makes the pedagogy interesting.
For better career opportunity. The faculty-student ratio is 1:100. Profs are mostly doctrate degree holder and teaching method is mostly through cases. Twice in 3 months marking is relative so passing depends on the performance of other students.
