Faculties in PGDM were industry skilled, quite resourceful and determined to impart qualitative and in-depth knowledge. We had some notable subjects for example Design Thinking which had a competitive edge over the others. The placements were satisfactory. There were a good number of companies coming in for our final placements and I personally landed in a very good organisation so my experience has been excellent.
