tiss which branch is better???

Avishek Dutta 22nd Dec, 2019
M.A in Human Resource Management and Labour Relations

Undoubtedly the best course offered at the Mumbai campus. Equivalent to MBA in HR and is treated as the countrys second best programme in HR, after the HRM course offered by XLRI Jamshedpur.

Master of Health Administration and Master of Hospital Administration

You may expect a decent career start through these courses. However, these are pretty niche courses and will restrict your career to Health Industry. So, go for it only if you are sure to work only in this industry. Though in long term, you may always get into consulting profile for Healthcare industry.

M.A in Development Studies

Another decent course offered by TISS Mumbai, though the placements are not at par with a front line premier institute. However, it does provide a good platform for one to launch the career exposure wise, though not monetarily.

M.A in Climate Change and Sustainability Practices

Recently launched course and hence still has to prove the mettle in corporate arena. However, from long term perspective, Climate Change and Sustainability Practices is definitely among one of the great areas to build your career in.
