which college is better on combaring between fiib delhi and itm navi mumbai for pgdm???
According to me
FIIB is good..
Although the institute is marginally short of achieving the glorious 100% placement mark, it offers more than enough opportunities for excellent future endeavours. The annual package offered to the students of FIIB New Delhi depends on their skill sets.
FIIB has managed to maintaina goodplacement record overall.The placement activities are conducted by theCorporate Relationship Centre (CRC) which works towards enhancing the skills and employability of the students. The team of CRC conducts pre-placement mock interviews for the second-year students in the areas of Finance, Marketing, International Business, and HR. This helps students prepare themselves for the actual campus placement interviewsand also helps them understand the recruiters perspective.
Got 80 percentile in mat. I live in delhi , should I go for FIIB delhi or should look colleges in Pune like pibm & iims pune?
FIIB Delhi and IIMs Pune is at par. You can easily get these colleges without any much hindrance. If you want to stay in Delhi only then you can opt FIIB as there i snot much difference between these colleges.
Scopes are also same in fact a little more in FIIB.
But if you want any other college in Delhi with this percentile , then you can try :
VIPS-TC-Delhi School of Business Delhi
Jagan Institute of Management
These 3 colleges are difficult to get but not impossible. It's 70-30 chance.
All the best!!
