There is a really good infrastructure here.

Placements: I wrote first semester exams in correspondence in this college and got a good result. I am not totally sure about my classmates' results, but I think 98% of them got passed the first-semester exams. University of Madras has been a well-known college since 1857. I think just as per its reputation, most of the students got placed in good companies.

It is the oldest and best known college for distance education.

Placements: Any student pursuing professional studies like CA, CMA, CS, etc., shall prefer taking admission through distance education and the University of Madras is the oldest and best known for distance education. But I believe the placements are above average. I got an internship through the university. The college offers internships at various mid-sized business firms. The salary packages offered to a student might depend on their merit and also the skills they possess.

I am satisfied as a working person, and I completed the MBA.

Placements: There are no placements for distance education. No top companies visit here for recruiting. In the post-graduation course, you can easily get placed as mid-management in any company with respect to your experience.

Infrastructure: Infrastructure is accessible while visiting the university for any work. Facilities and infrastructure available for the course online and offline are good. Even in the time of covid19, they provided online classes for students to teach and conduct exams.

It is a great university to continue your education and have a bright future.

Placements: Since I chose distance education, I don't know anything about placements in the university. But the students from senior batches told me that they get good values and benefits for studying in this university. According to my knowledge, the highest salary offered was Rs. 30,000 per month and the lowest salary package offered was Rs. 15,000 per month.

I am dissatisfied because of the facilities provided.

Placements: I joined B.Com general in 2019 and will finish it by the year 2021. Nearly 60% of students get placed in the course. The salary packages offered ranges from Rs. 20,000 per month to Rs. 45,000 per month. Role offered is as an accountant. Meanwhile, some students also take CA, CMA, and CS courses.

Infrastructure: As I am also doing the CA course. So we are studying by distance education only. Therefore I don't know much about the facilities provided by college neither I am staying in the hostel.
