Placements: Placements in college are very good. Students are from diverse backgrounds and have a target role and industry which makes it difficult to attract companies. However, due to college brand, efforts and preparedness of students, almost 90% of the students end up getting their desired role and industry.

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.
