Actually none of these is good colleges. But if you only want join from any of these colleges, then GIBS would be nice.
Let's talk about it
An average place to study, unique infrastructure. According to the reviews which are on internet it seems that it is a very good college to join.
GIBS Business School has a "Placement Panel" whose head is Mrs. Uzma Nayeem (Renowned Image Consultant) and the members of the panels are all the CEOs of companies in bangalore. GIBS even has a placement advisory board working for the national and international placements. Every Saturday they have a Guest Lecture from one the members of the panel and a session from Mrs. Uzma Nayeem to shape up your personalities into corporate person. So, placements are sure provided student actively participates and attends all the sessions arranged for the placements by the panel.
Average:- 6 - 8 lakhs
Highest:- 11.30 lakhs
I found GIBS Business School in the Internet. Beautiful infrastructure, with all world class amenities. They have an Unique TRIO combination of MBA + PGPM along with SAP, SIX SIGMA and Project Management Program (one of the most required and appreciated certification world wide) and many more value added courses and certifications.
Please upvote if this was helpful to you.
Hope this helps.
