Ques. How is the MBA placement in Utkal University?

● Top Answer By Kiran Chugh on 02 Nov 21

Ans. You should always prefer a recognized B-School or a reputed college doing your MBA. Utkal University is a reputed university but doing an MBA from there may not be wise. As UU doesn’t offer good placement opportunities. I personally know a few people who completed their MBA from UU. According to them, the university doesn’t offer proper placement opportunities. Also, there are no such internship facilities available. So, you will need to search for jobs through off-campus placements.  Although Utkal University can be a good option for doing UG or PG courses, it is not good for an MBA course. Read more

Ques. Is it advisable to go for a new IIM like IIM Jammu and do MBA? It is being mentored by IIM Lucknow so will placement be also mentored by them?

● Top Answer By Megha Rohilla on 29 Oct 21

Ans. One of my friends is studying at IIM Jammu. According to him, it is one of the youngest IIMs, though it has not made it into the big leagues, it is still growing every day. Let me share some facts about it. This will give you a clear idea. It is being mentored by IIM Lucknow, it tries to reach their level of education, thus keeping students busy with several activities that will help them grow intellectually and academically. You will also have committees, clubs, intra and inter-college festivals, competitions, etc. to improve holistic development. They have the same faculty from IIM Lucknow except for one or two subjects.  The pedagogy and curriculum are exactly the same as IIM Lucknow. The student crowd is very enthusiastic and competitive.  In terms of the ROI, IIM Jammu is a good option.  The batch size is small and the number of companies visiting the campus is more thus balancing it out. You cannot expect the placements to be the same as the top IIMs. But they are good, being a new institute. IIM Jammu is the only IIM with a foreign immersion program. Categories IIM Jammu Course Fee 14.82 lakh Placement Percentage 80% Highest CTC 24 LPA Average CTC 10 LPA Recruiting Companies Deloitte, HCL, TATA Power, Tech Mahindra, etc. Lastly, it can be assured that the IIM tag will forever be with you. Though mentored by IIM Lucknow the placements won't be at that level, but they won't be disappointing either. If you work hard, securing a job will not be a problem.Read more
