Placement Experience :

honestly i didn't get chance to attend campus placements because of my backlogs, but their has to be something needs to change like every can/able get a chance to campus placement, their has to something like this kind of feature i'm proposing. rockman,IBM, inoxcva etc i don't know much more because my three friends are in these company's i don't know about average package as of i did not attended campus placement sometimes 100:5 100:1 it varies upon companies like IBM it took +-20

Course Curriculum Overview :

Course Curriculum Overview :

BBA is an open course I believe because there are subjects of commerce, arts and science too, therefore, I took it. Talking about the faculty, they are really great. Around 90% of my faculty teaches very well and all of them provide materials too. When I was in the first year, the student-faculty ratio was 50:1 but now when I'm in the second year the ratio has increased to 75:1 as they made two classes now which was 3 in the first year. They teach us mainly through presentations. The exams are conducted on a timely basis, End semester exams are compulsory obviously but mid-semesters are not compulsory. The internals consists of 60 marks and Externals are of 40 marks. The internals is covered through tests and assignments. Talking about the difficulty level it is mostly easy but could be tough for few subjects like IT and QT. For me it was easy as I took notes in all the classes and didn't studied much before exams as I had my notes.

Campus Life :

In my department, the committee organises Eclipse in march which is the BBA department's fest it goes for a week and consists of many business-related competitions and sports tournaments. Apart from that, a talent hunt competition is also held every year mostly in august or September and there is Feb Fest in February. In sports mainly cricket and football are always organised and there is actually the whole university's sports day held in the month of January which consists of track and field events and some indoor games. The University has a cultural club which celebrates various festivals and auspicious events. The college library is also nice, not huge not too small most of the books are available there. In classrooms, we have a projector and computer.

Internships Opportunities :

In my course, there are two internships which we have to do. First is the social internship at the end of the first year and the second is the corporate internship which is at the end of the second year. Unfortunately, due to COVID -19 I was unable to go for my social internship but before that, the college does provide you with internship organizations where you can apply or you can also find it on your own.
