Our college needs improvement in teaching skills.
Placements: The top roles offered were in investment banking, IT product management, consulting, and credit risk analysis. Major companies were from IT, banking space, and mutual fund industry like SBI MF and HDFC MF. Top major auto companies like Tata Motors and Maruti also came for finance roles.
Infrastructure: Food quality was okay, and sports facilities were there with multiple options. Many students come at the same time for tennis for which the space was limited. If coordinated well everyone can enjoy some sports, else there will be a lot of chaos.
Faculty: Teachers were not knowledgeable enough as compared to a similar level of IIM. Few teachers were keen to make students understand the project with real-life case studies and assignments. While most of the teachers didn't bother if students are listening to them or not.
Other: Extracurricular activities are held in our college.

It is the best college for MBA students where students can gain knowledge.
Placements: Around 60% of students are placed. This college is good at communication skills, because for MBA students communication skills are most important. Flipkart, Amazon, Wipro, Cognizant, and Accenture are the top recruiting companies. Around 70% of students got internships in Flipkart, and the role offered is a business analyst.

The hostel is very good like 3-star hotel-type rooms, and food is very good, taste, and of good quality. Sports are also provided in this college.
Faculty: Teachers are polite and very helpful. Even they will ask in the lecture if students are clear or not. This course makes the students ready for their work and is helpful in business. IT is based on student's learning skill, and most students don't read the books they just follow the lectures and give exams. The exams are tough for freshers.
Other: I opted for this course, because of my father. I took business analytics in MBA after joining and its key role is playing the market. I want to improve my presentations because, I am not able to present good content in the presentation so, I am want to improve for writing good content. The fests and events are held every month, and scholarships are also available based on their entrance test marks.
