How is the recruitment process

Abhinav Jha 8th May, 2019

Hello Aseema,

Kirloskar institute of advance management, harihar has two campuses and harihar campus is the older one. It has a good placement record but ROI is not up to the mark. The college gives admission on the basis of MAT, CAT CMAT score and graduation percentage should be 60 or more.

Admission will be given on the basis of entrance score, graduation marks and GD/PI performance. 

I wish you all the best.

Which college is better for mba(marketing) either kirloskar,harihar or IBA, banglore

Ayush Jain 18th Apr, 2019

Hi Gautam,

As per my Personal Experience I would suggest that you that you should go for IBA bangalore or Pune. Though Bangalore is an IT  hub but there are more opportunity for MBA graduates in Pune.Kirloskar college which that is situated in Harihar (332kms from Bengaluru) & Pune ,but it is 60 kms away from Pune.The College doesnt't have proper faculties, management & Infrastruture and the college se connectivity issue also.In IBA you will get more practical experience that will help you in your placements.In Kirloskar last year highest pkge was 14 lacs that is pretty much high from IBA but 14 lacs was just CTC actual pkge was only 7-8 lacs ( major was from marketing only). So comparing both the colleges I would suggest you to go for IBA Bengaluru.
