It is a good college, but it requires time to provide better placements.

Placements: Almost 100% of the students got placed in the previous year with an average salary package of around 8 LPA, and the highest salary package of 13.5 LPA and the lowest salary package of 6.5 LPA. The top recruiters of our course are the Consulting and Analytics firm. Internship placements are also good, and about 89% of the students can get internships with a stipend in almost 95% of the companies which visit the college to offer internships.

Infrastructure: I would rate 5 stars to the infrastructure of the college. The campus is fully Wi-Fi enabled, and 24x7 water facility is available. The library is well-equipped with books as well as the digital subscription. Classrooms are generally in a semi-circular manner so that every student can have the right focus toward the teaching faculty members. The mess is good and is maintained by Sodexo, and there is a 24x7 shop for other eaters on the campus. Medical faculty is available for 24 hours, along with...

Great Lakes is a great place to learn.

Placements: Almost 100% of the students from our course got placed. The highest salary package of 23 LPA and the average salary package of 13 LPA and the lowest salary package of 8 LPA are offered in our college. Amazon, Accenture Strategy, Deloitte, TCS, etc., are the top recruiters of our college. Business analyst, data scientist, financial risk analyst and consultant are the top roles offered in our course. As this is a PGPM course (1 year MBA), so we don't have internships.

Global mindset, Indian roots.

Placements: We are yet to sit for placements. Although according to the trend, great Lakes Institute of Management has been on the rise and top companies come for recruitment. Analytics is the niche course of Great Lakes and is considered amongst the best in India.

The curriculum is huge, but placements are low.

Placements: Until now, only Deloitte has visited the college as a mass recruiter, and it hired 56 students from PGPM branch. Other than this, there are minor recruiters like Honeywell, where one candidate was selected. A company named Virtusa has offered 6 PPOs, and HSBC has hired six candidates. Placements are not as per the expectations considering the curriculum. It is a good option for TCS sabbaticals as they can join back TCS after PGPM. But, it is not good for those who join this college after resigni...
