Hello, I want to do mba logistics and supply chain management course..is that course available?

Prince 13th Mar, 2019


Yes, this course is available.   In the current scenario logistics and SCM are booming areas.  Job opportunities in the related area are increasing every day. I can suggest you some institutes where you can study MBA in Logistics and supply chain management. My friends and cousins are either studying there or have studied. 

Amity University - Amity has a campus in Bangalore also but I am told that it is not very promising. Although they are providing good placement for their students there are many areas where they need to improve. So please make the choice carefully and cautiously. Highest package in the recent year was 14 LPA. 

Lovely Professional University- One of my friends is passed out from here in 2016, now he is working with an MNC as a state head of their sales. Their last year placement also good, the highest package was 21 LPA.  Recently Amazon hired few students at a  package of 28 LPA. 

Manipal Academy of Higher Education- This institute is coming under Manipal University. Highest package was 18 LPA. 

Symbiosis- Symbiosis Institute of the premier institute for MBA. Highest salary package in the recent year was 24 LPA.

Presidency- This is a top university from Bangalore. Their MBA programme is very famous, especially the city like Bangalore, getting a job is an easy task. Because it's an IT hub. 

Hope this information will help you. Best wishes. 

Good Luck!


My son was shortlisted in IIM Lucknow (Sustainability management), IIM Shillong, Trichy & IIT Mumbai & Delhi. Which is best?

Amod Tripathi 14th Feb, 2018
Though IIM Lucknow is the best institute but sustainability is a niche course and you should get into it if and only if you are very much interested in a career in sustainability management.

From the others IIT Bombay is better than IIT Delhi better than IIM Trichy. If you are not sure about your specialisation post MBA you should opt for a general management programme.

All the best!
