Admission process is pretty lengthy here. First you have to give a management level entrance exam. I gave the CMAT exam and scored good. Then I applied at the college with all of my academic details and CMAT score. Shortlisted students are invited for next rounds, which mainly include GD/PI and even a psychometric test. Based on all these attributes students are evaluated and granted admission.
Placement Experience :
Our placement cell is pretty dedicated towards maintaining close tie ups with companies and invites them for the recruitment purpose. Some of these companies include names like Kotak, Ramco Cements, HDFC life, Siemens, Tommy Hilfiger, Calvin Klein, pwc, kpmg.
Though, average package is around 3-4 LPA, which is an area where they can still improve by
bringing more companies on-board to improve the placement record.
College allocate weightage to different factors like entrance exam scores, academic profile, diversity factor, work experience, performance in GD/PI, and psychometric test scores. Entire selection procedure is very much exhaustive, but being one of the top-notch colleges in the region it was my ultimate choice for masters.
Placement Experience :
Placements are pretty great and had everyone satisfied, with more than 90% of batch getting placed before the end of the session. Placement cell helped us a lot during the placement drive and even during the internship. Highest package offered to the student of our batch was around 9 LPA which is still an area where they can improve. Most of the recruitment were done by Ramco and Kotak, etc.
