The good: Some of the best minds get into this campus and, therefore, the learning from your own peer group gives a stiff competition to the classroom learning. Most classes are interactive in nature with a balanced mix of the case based and theoretical pedagogy. There is also a great mix of extracurriculars ranging from volunteering work to cult fests to so parties. Alum network is fairly decent and the placements are one of the best in an Indian B-school.
