Ques. How good is DOMS IIT Madras as compared to new IIMs?

● Top Answer By Keshav Jindal on 26 Jul 21

Ans. As far as I got to know from my friend studying there, DOMS IIT Madras is a good institute. Also, DOMS IIT Madras is certainly better than the new IIMs. There are some reasons behind it, which I am going to share with you. He shared one experience about an IIM Bangalore guy who was given a project to collate existing data from all the possible data streams in the function and generate a report out of it. But he was too lazy to work upon it and was not given any offer. And after this one case, IBM finance never went to IIM Bangalore for internships ever since. My personal experience is that IIT Madras is in fact comparable to IIM Indore and Kochi if not better; surely much better than new IIMs.Read more

Ques. Which one is better between IIT Madras and Delhi School of Economics for MBA?

● Top Answer By Arunasish Sen on 14 Aug 20

Ans. To compare the two colleges we must take into account several factors which vary from student to student. DSE offers two specialized management degrees and also displays a long list of alumni who are big players in industry for decades now. IIT Madras started offering an MBA program from 2004 and has gradually been picking pace, though non-uniform. Here is an exhaustive pointwise comparison of IIT Madras and Delhi School of Economics for an MBA degree- Curriculum- IIT-M offers a general management degree with freedom to choose subjects (major and minor) while DSE facilitates a specialized degree, MBA in Human Resource Development, and International Business with no minor subjects. Fee- The total expenditure in DSE rounds to 32k and nears 8 lakhs in IIT-M. The former is affiliated to Delhi University and the latter is a University on its own. Infrastructure- IIT Madras has a campus area of around 600 acres with the facilities of the premier engineering institute. On this front, DSE falls short by a big margin for the moment. Both the colleges have wifi enabled campus and well-equipped libraries along with other basic amenities. Hostel facility- DSE does not provide any hostel accommodation for management students while IIT-M has double occupancy dorms available at an affordable fee. Placements- The median salary bagged at DSE is 9.5 LPA, while IIT-M has an average of 12.44 LPA. Placement rates of both colleges is around 95% and mostly all the bright minds bag jaw-dropping offers. Student Life- DSE is located in North Campus, the heart of Delhi University. One can experience an apt blend of exuberance and scholarly wisdom floating around. IIT-M, on other hand, is a top-ranked University of country, and the sprawling campus ensures students do not miss out on leisure and knowledge. Ranking- The 2020 NIRF rankings placed IIT-M at first position in overall college rankings. Some other factors which play a decisive role in one college being preferred over another are the Return on Investment (ROI). It becomes a major differentiator for many students with financial constraints, and DSE is one of the rare colleges providing a management degree with high ROI. To conclude, both the institutes offer a management degree worth a name and are a good place to join in for an MBA degree.Read more
