wl : WHAT IS THE AVERAGE PACKAGE OF IIFT K?
vinnayraj : the placements for both the campuses are done at the delhi campus and the average package is around 18 lakhs per annum..


arjunpalwai : I HAVE GONE THROUGH THE PLACEMENT REPORT OF NMIMS MUMBAI, THEIR AVG SHOWS 17.64L, HOWEVER MHRD LIST SHOWS MEDIAN AS 10.5. WHICH ONE IS RELIABLE??(THOUGH MEDIAN AND AVG ARE DIFFERENT, THERE IS HUGE GAP)
satyaprakash : Are you questioning the veracity of the reports on the basis of the huge gap between the median & the average? Peruse both the reports at length to clear any cobwebs of confusion that exist in your mind. From past observation, NMIMS doesn't fudge its placement reports.


rohit777 : THANK YOU SATYAPRAKASH SIR ..BETWEEN BIMTECH AND SIMS PUNE WHICH ONE IS BETTER ?
satyaprakash : BIMTECH Noida > SIMS Pune.


wl : NMIMS MUMBAI AND IIM SHILONG AND IIT B ALL FALL IN THE SAME CATEGORY ?
thomas : yes, ranked from 11-20.


chirag : HELLO SIR, I HAVE BEEN WORKING FOR THE PAST 4 YEARS . NOW I LEFT MY JOB LAST OCTOBER FOR FULL TIME PREPARATION OF CAT 2017. WILL THIS 1 YEAR GAP HAMPER MY CHANCES WHEN I GO FOR THE INTERVIEW ? I BELONG TO SC CATEGORY.
vinnayraj : not really..work hard and do well in the cat and gd/pi and you should secure admission in a very good b school..


rohit : SIR, THERE HAVE BEEN MIXED REVIEWS ABOUT SIES AND WELINGKAR AND SOME OF THE TIME FACULTY TOLD ME SIES>WELINGKAR AND PLACEMENTS AT WELINGKAR IS AN ISSUE SINCE ALL STREAMS HAVE THEIR PLACEMENTS TOGETHER AND CANDIDATES CAN BE PREFERRED FOR ANY STREAM WHICH MAKES IT ALL THE MORE DIFFICULT. CAN YOU SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS?
satyaprakash : <<< Welingkar > SIES. Any day. Notice the three spotlights I have shone on Welingkar to be categorical in my response. Speak to your faculty & ask them for details. Go through the placement records of both b-schools. Do some mental legwork, kid!


jiten : CONVERTED VGSOM AND IMT G...WHICH COLLEGE SHOULD I JOIN? I AM OPEN TO ANY SPECIALIZATION.
vinnayraj : vgsom..


rohit777 : @SATYA SIR PLEASE PROVIDE INFO HOW BIMTECH IS BETTER THAN SIMS THOUGH SIMS CLAIMS BETTER AVG SAL ?
satyaprakash : BIMTECH has better job offers & profiles. The average salary is not the only factor that decides the worht of a b-school. In fact, average salaries are quite misleading. Look at the complete placement record of any b-school before making a decision.


saurabh : FORE VS GIM FOR FINANCE OR NEXT YR ? I STAY IN DELHI. 2.5 YRS EXPERIENCE
thomas : if you are working, i would suggest you try once more next year.


chirag : THANK YOU @VINNAYRAJ SIR
vinnayraj : welcome..all the best!!


rohit777 : IN WHICH PARAMETER BIMTECH IS BETTER THAN SIMS ?@SATYAPRAKASH SIR PLEASE REPLY ONLY 5 MIN LEFT
bharat : diversity... all admissions on merit basis a BIMTECH... at SIMS, 90% of folks come from defence families... othwerise both are BBB colleges.


arjunpalwai : SATYA PRAKASH SIR....VERACITY IN MHRD LIST?? SECONDLY WHEN THE AVG IS 17.64L, GENERALLY MEDIAN WILL BE 2-3L CLOSE TO IT. BUT FROM NOWHERE IT DIPPED TO 10.5L..HENCE MY CONCERN
satyaprakash : Absolutely! I operate on the assumption that everybody lies. And even though most people don't, I have discovered quite detailed information because of the way I approach things. And since you have both the reports, can you not compare the two? Also, what is your concern? If you are in NMIMS, make sure you are in the top 5 % of the batch. & if not, then why worry about it?


adi : IS IT BENEFICIAL TO GO TO KOCHI FOR XIME FROM DELHI?
bharat : no... try for a job -- work harder, do better in the tests, get into a better college


rohit777 : @THOMAS SIR PLEASE SUGGEST ABOUT BIMTECH AND SIMS WHICH ONE IS BETTER ?
bharat : already answered


chirag : SIR, WHICH ONE SHOULD I CHOOSE MDI VS IIM INDORE?
bharat : same category --- though we suggest you opt for IIM Indore -- one of the six older IIMs... brand value counts


nishank : SIR, WHICH COLLEGE IS BETTER IIRM HYDERABAD OR CBIT HYDERABAD?
bharat : avoid both... not known for quality of management education and placements
