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. Being in Bangalore, this campus enjoy...

The scorecard and experience criteria do vary from one institute to another institute. Do check their official site for more details. Normally the admission cycle starts from July onwards and goes up to December/January depending on the institute. All full-time residential programs do also offer career placement assistance. It depends on you whether you want to leave your job or you want to take a sabbatical from your present employer. But if you are looking for only executive PGPM certification programs then the admission criteria are very easy. They have multiple admission cycles in a year. These executive certification programs also provide one week or one-month campus immersion module as part of the courseware depending on the institute.
