Remarks :

I have chosen masters in business administration because it is all about industries and business handling. The best thing about our course is we gain knowledge about all the things like what is going on in our economy. I wish that our communication must be very good, either in Hindi or English language. We all know that, in respected industries, English is preferred more and also Hindi. I have not attended many events, so I don't know about them. However, I have attended our fresher's party, which is organised by our seniors. It was great. On the campus, there is a good environment, but theenvironment is not much good outside the campus

Placement Experience :

About 70% of the students from our course got placed mostly in the marketing domain. The average salary package offered in our course is 2.5 LPA. Marketing companies recruit many students. About 80% of the students got internships. Roles like sales, marketing, in human resource for recruitment, team leader and account handling in the finance domain are offered here.

College Events :

Average quality facilities are available in our hostel, and mostly quality food is available in the mess. Medical facilities are also good. Our college has many types of sports clubs like badminton, basketball, volleyball, cricket, tennis, carrom and karate club. I joined the karate club for self-defence.
