It has great curriculum and faculty, and holistic approach to education.

Placements: As a first-year, I am not fully aware of the exact statistical details for placements. However, some of the major companies that recruited our students include McKinsey, Deloitte, Star TV, Genpact, Zomato, RBL Bank, and Mu Sigma. Many students also go for Masters degree at eminent universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, KCL, Sciences Po Paris, SOAS and Trinity College Dublin. For the year 2018-19, the highest salary package offered was 25 LPA, while the average package was between 7-11 LPA.

Infrastructure: As our exposure to the college campus has been limited, or absent altogether, my idea of the infrastructure is based on information provided by the university themselves and seniors. The campus is well-equipped, with air-conditioners and Wi-Fi-enabled classrooms and dormitories. There are multiple labs, especially for the pure science and STEM courses, which are equipped with the most updated machinery and resources. The library is one of the largest among all college libraries in India and has ...
