Reviews

Course Curriculum Overview :

The course remains the same for all first year students ( 3 trimesters per year). This is to equip students with basic knowledge of all subjects. The students get an option to chose subjects of their choice in second year. Specialization is decided based on the maximum numbers of subject chosen from each domain. The decision to chose a subject is mostly dependent on the quality of the faculty, the feedback from the seniors and the interest of the student considering the relevance of the subject in today's world It is mandatory for all students to undergo a one month long social internship (most of the students get their internships under an NGO chosen by the college in their hometown) - a unique thing about NMIMS Day to day learnings in classes are driven by case based study approach. Harvard case studies are used for all subjects along with the regular text books. There are marks for mid terms, final terms, class assignment and class participation.

Campus Life :

NMIMS has many committees where students can get into. There are committees that have huge responsibility on them like Placement Committee, Student Council, Industry Partnership cell and then there are domain wise clubs and cells like NJM (for marketing), Finomenon (for Finance) and Optimuz (for Operations). Joining any one of them basis the interest will guarantee additional knowledge and exposure apart from few extra lines on the CV. Apart from these there are interest based cells and societies for dramatics, dancing, photography etc. The annual business fest is Paragana which is held every year around October (www.paragana.nmims.edu). It contains inter college competitions, fests, seminars and corporate events. Classroom infra is quite modern and comparable to any top college of India. Lack of hostel is a major disadvantage for peer learning.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

Affordability is an issue. The overall cost of MBA including accommodation and food is approximately 5-6 lacs more than the tuition fees. There were very less scholarship opportunities from the college (benefitting less than 5% of the students as far as I remember), however there are options of corporate scholarships. The college's affinity for money could be judged from the fact it is one of the few colleges which charges you even for attending the group discussion and personal interviews NMIMS MBA could arguably be one of the costliest MBA programs in India.

Campus Life :

Vaayu is the biggest fest in NMIMS. It takes place in December. It's a grand event going for 3-4 days. A lot of different things lead to everyone enjoying a lot. Classrooms are updated. They have e boards etc to make things very convenient. There is a proper sports club and there are many sporting events all across the year. We have an SRF committee which is for social work. They indulge in various interesting and useful activities all across the year.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Because I've always been interested in numbers and finance. Therefore this was a great course for me. The student-teacher ratio would be 1:20. The teachers are highly qualified and have practical experience in their fields. They give industry examples while teaching. Term exams take place twice every year and are held as per schedule every time. They are considered difficult as they want to make sure you have understood the concept.

Placement Experience :

From 3rd year students become eligible for placements. Various great companies like tesla, Barclays, etc have visited our campus. They give 5-10 placements on an average. The highest package goes till 50 lakh a year while the average is around 10-12 lakh. 40% of students opt for college placements. I'll probably intern for a year and then do CFA.

Course Curriculum Overview :

Course curriculum is good but improvements need to be done so as to include latest developments and more focus should be given on research facilities. The faculty is a bit disappointing, the teachers have immense knowledge but are too busy in gossip, 80% of the syllabus is self-learnt by the students. KEM has a good name but only the Faculty of Physiotherapy needs to be blamed, other depts do their job well. Of the 10 teachers in the dept, only 4 are good that too if they are in good mood.

Campus Life :

Way better than expected. Students who are interested in sports will really love the campus, we have courts for almost all the major college level sports both indoor as well as outdoor. The next best thing is our completely air conditioned library, medical journals, reference books on almost all the topics will be available here. Plus the ample space for reading or studying is massive boon. The infrastructure sorts of lessens the pain caused by the more than incompetent faculty.

College Events :

Seth GS Medical College keeps on hosting multiple academic as well as cultural events throughout the year. Be it Quiz, Talent competition, Paper presentation or Fashion shows, GSites excel in all of them. All the events lead to the Mega Medical fest called as AAVISHKAAR, a 4 day gala filled with lots of fun, competitive games and thrilling entertainment. Medicos from all over Maharashtra and India come to participate in multiple events or just to enjoy the fest.
