The college did not meet up to the expectations.

Placements: There is a placement cell at the college. The placements were not that great especially for economics students. The companies that visited the campus were mainly focused for finance and management. Internship opportunities were also provided but was not very useful.

Infrastructure: College has facilities like library, computer lab, cafeteria, pool room. The campus is equipped with centralised AC. It lacks a campus feeling. The classrooms are small but comfortable with a projector in each classroom. The cafeteria...

The course is awesome, and the faculty members are brilliant.

Placements: Placements in the college were okay. Students who applied for placements got placed in quite good places with an average salary package of 5 LPA. I didn't apply for placements, so I can't comment on it. However, as far as I know, the placements are average concerning the money spent. It's probably much easier to get into colleges abroad after pursuing courses here.

Infrastructure: The college is very small. However, the teachers are exceptional and invest a lot of time to ensure that students develop the right t...

They got good salary packages and are still working in those companies. They are happy there as they say that the environment in the company is really good.

The faculty and facilities are good here. The student community is nice and so, an overall experience is decent. The fee, cafeteria and placements are not good. The Alumni network must be developed. The college must market themselves better even though they have an affiliation with University of London and course academic direction from London School of Economics. They provide both undergraduate and postgraduate diploma programs. It is totally worth if you apply for higher studies. But when it c...

ISBF prepares you for the best.

Placements: The placement cell provided opportunities. It was very helpful and worked throughout the year. It also arranged classes to prepare the students for interviews and resume building. ISBF also had a platform to provide international work placements in New York and London, but I wanted to work in India, and I got placed in KPMG. Almost all my classmates have been placed.

I am sorry your question isn't clear enough. If you already have cleared your entrance and PI. Why would they shortlist you again based on only PI?

What is the total fees of this course including the hostel charges? What minimum score do I require in every semester to clear it?
