Asia Pacific Institute of Management 2008 story..!
Times have changed & surely with that have come a change in the class of students attending MBA institutes. Am a student of Asia Pacific & I am not here to post a defending statement for my college….but give a general review to help someone if it may be.
The seniors of the same institute or many others as one would have met a couple of years ago surely did talk in the particular dialect described & chewing tobacco might have been there game. But as competition has increased & sudden change in more students preferring MBA added to stricter A.I.C.T.E. norms has given a Macroeconomic change to these institutes & surely the intellectual capital of students has increased.
And am not just saying it, you are most welcome to visit Asia Pacific or any other institute of similar caliber.
As far as placements are concerned. Then even I would say “sab ki lag jaati hai”…but what makes a difference is your hard work. The institute promises 100% placements & I have seen my seniors getting multiple chances to pick the company of their choice; of course with limited number of attempts. And packages do start from as low as 2.5 but go as higher as 6 on average and up to 12 for international & all this is from placement cell & not “jaan pechaan”.
Only thing I would suggest is that choose the institute you want to do MBA from on the bases of your priorities in life. Are they to acquire knowledge, earn a quick buck or just to do a post graduation & you would be able to decide better as to which institute suits you more, because Asia Pacific might not be in line with IIM’s or FMS bt it sure fairs at top in MAT institutes of NCR & India.
Hope this brief view of current situation is a help to someone. I only want to clear the prejudices & not advertise.
