    Triple learning, Triple fun, Triple success.
    Placements: Placement rate is 100% and 50% got PPO. The highest package was 40 LPA and average was 25 LPA. Top recruiters for internship and final placements are MasterCard, DE Shaw, EXL, PwC, ITC, Amazon. Etc. Top roles- Business consultant, Sr. manager-Analytics, Data scientist, Solution architect, etc.
    Infrastructure: ISI cal- Wi-Fi enabled campus, great library, and labs, classrooms have all modern amenities, food is a bit costly but very good. One and only Museum, great ambiance on campus, very supportive staff, very less students so peaceful.
    Faculty: The faculty here are gods, to be honest. Each and every one of them has the ability to solve any doubt from anything analytics. Very humble and knowledgeable (especially ISI). You'll get a whole semester (6 months) for graded-Internship (also paid). I think that's more than enough to make you industry ready, it makes you Start-UP-ready. Also, each and every one of your peers would be highly accomplished him/herself, so a lot to learn from peer-to-peer. The course gets updated regularly in line with the latest technology, theory, etc. In the Analytics domain (both Industry and Academics).
    Other: This is one of the first courses in business analytics to be offered in our nation and quickly climbed up the rankings. With all three pioneers, I don't think there is any course better than this even presently. Our semesters were shortened and that made the course very intensive and rigorous. But again it was due to Covid and I don't see it getting repeated in the future. Lots of events and fests are organized here (right now on hold due to Covid). The campus crowd is as expected from Premium institutes, everyone is well accomplished. Scholarships are given to EWS folks.
