Which is a better college for MBA, Christ university or IFIM Bangalore? Please do not talk about ROI. Thats not an issue.
Christ University is way better than IFIM Business School. IFIM is pretty new and has not yet managed to carve a niche for itself in MBA education whereas Christ University Bangalore is well known for its MBA course. It's a pretty decent college offering 70-80% placements with an average package of 6-8 lakhs per annum.
So go for Christ University only. Good luck.
