It is difficult to judge a college from a single course, so, this answer is written in a generic manner. Choosing the right college is difficult, more so when you're comparing four of the renowned B-schools of the country.
Since we're comparing B-schools, there are few things that are more important than anything and one should pay attention to since management institutions cost fortunes. Any B-school is only worth if it has great: placement cell, infrastructure, and faculty/curriculum; so let's only focus on these features.
Ramaiah Institute Of Management Studies/Sciences, Affiliated to Gokula Educational Trust, is a private business school that was established in 1995.
Placements: Famous for its great placement cell, placement at Ramaiah is good considering that almost 100+ companies come for placement year on year. Many companies like Deloitte, Honeywell, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Aon Global, ACT Fibernet, etc, visit the institution, and packages can go from 3LPA to 7LPA on average. In 2018, the highest package was 16LPA, and in 2017, 9LPA.
Infrastructure: The school is equipped with decent classroom facilities, and as the institution has recently gotten remodeled, there are even more facilities provided now. Computer lab, 24/7 library, campus wifi, out-campus hostel, and AC classrooms. However, medical facilities and sports may not be up to the mark according to many reviews. Food outlets are available plenty inside the campus. Good parking facility.
Faculty: It has faculty members from varied industries and CEOs of prominent business organizations. Faculty members from IIMs is a common sight. There are good and experienced professors in each and every domain, but the best faculty are those from the finance domain. Industrial visit is done once every tenure.

There are more start ups than big brands. Many of the students don't get placed but almost all get enrolled in various internship offers. Companies like Oracle, Nestle, Morgan Stanley, etc are some of the recruiters.
Faculty: All the faculties are highly experienced and accomplished in their respective fields; most of them Ph.D. holders. Very good place for networking. Great industrial connect. The learning environment is perfect. The faculties are interactive and helpful to students. Focuses on practical learning for case studies. The best domain is finance education.
Infrastructure: A little on the remote side of the city, hence transportation is uncomfortable for day scholars. However, closer to the IT hub so advantages for the course. The hostel is decent enough, but the mess is not up to mark. Decent classrooms and has all basic facilities.
