IIMC - Indian Institute of Mass Communication provides good placements and campus life.

Placements: Placement drives are held in February. Companies like TOI, ABP News, Economic Times, All India Radio, PTI, and Dooradarshan come to the campus and hire students for various positions. The highest package offered is 20 LPA, by Sony Entertainment, Mumbai, whereas the average package offered is 3 LPA. As per the placement cell, approximately 75% of students got placed. I joined AIR as a content executive for its Social Media Cell.

Infrastructure: There are updated and well-versed volumes of books, journals, and magazines in the library, along with high-speed internet. Classrooms are all digital, with projector screens, speakers, and microphones. There are a lot of co-curricular activities on campus, such as table tennis, badminton courts, tennis courts, and more. I was a part of the film club on campus, and we used to watch one film every Saturday in the auditorium, followed by a discussion on the film itself. Each hostel room has a sing...

With the right people, it is a good place to be.

Placements: Placements can be overwhelming. Not an easy process. As my placements took place during peak times of Covid, not many good companies were hiring. Would be no harm to look out for yourself and keep your options open. Build your CV, they do not allow internships during the course, it would great if you do them before joining.

Infrastructure: Delhi campus is beautiful. Next to JNU, the greenery and rest of the infrastructure makes it a comfortable place to be and study. The library is fine. The collection in the li...

Review of IIMC - Indian Institute of Mass Communication.

Placements: In our course, there were around 50 seats. It was quite hard for me to crack 3 rounds and get into IIMC. Due to corona, we did not receive a good placement drive, but there were certain media houses, where some of us got placed. Even after final results, our college is still ensuring placements for students. If you are an IIMC student, then you can have the best experience in nearby JNU, just a gate away. IIMC is the mecca of journalism, and every possible media exposure is provided to students ...

I am satisfied because of the faculty, good infrastructures and facilities.

Placements: About 30% of our classmates got selected in various news channels, websites, etc. The highest salary offered was Rs. 30,000 per month, and the average salary offered was Rs. 20,000 per month. The lowest salary offered was Rs. 16,000 per month. Top recruiting companies like Zee, Doordarshan and ETV Bharat visit our campus for placements. Very few students do an internship because they complete their courses applied for jobs at several companies. They generally don't offer the top roles as they ar...

IIMC especially IIMC, Delhi gives good exposure and a place where you can grow & learn.

Placements: Till 2019, majority of students got placement from the campus. As far as 2020 is concerned due to the corona pandemic the placements are going on while offline placements will be there once the situation improves. It will be interesting to know as to how the placements have gone as till now we have got only negative responses.

Infrastructure: From classrooms to labs to everything. Infrastructure is quite good. Good quality food in the canteen at the most reasonable price along with beautiful gardens and cleanlin...
