Batch of 2019 | PGDM
The college has an excellent infrastructure with uniquely built classrooms and scenic surroundings. Very good exposure to academic & personal lessons that are crucial for life. An amazing set of friends who always act as stressbusters. The offer from ZEEL. A very well equipped gym, bb court, badminton court and luxurious hostel rooms.

Great Lakes is simply Great

Great Lakes had a huge impact on my knowledge base, perspectives, the way of thinking - thanks to the diverse faculties we had. You would end up having professors having a different philosophy, style of teaching, evaluating, etc. We had a few outstanding faculties who were masters in their respective area (and a few not so good ones too - well, Law of Averages). library open from 8 to 12 midnight and a huge collection of books - across different categories and a wide variety of magazines and Newspapers . The facilities are world class with superb classrooms and great hostels .Personally, I feel Great Lakes is way ahead of the league it is currently in thanks to the great facilities and the awesome faculties. The knowledge imparted is definitely better than other B-Schools that are said to be in the same league. But, sadly the placement cell hasn't been able to convert that into a great advantage in terms of career. Though students have been getting decent opportunities (and some have reached great positions too), I feel the students deserve to be at a different level. I would like to have a change in the strategy of the placement cell.

Balance between personal life and study life

The college infrastructure is really good. It also India's only LEED platinum rated campus. The professors here are really knowledgeable and are always up to date in teaching techniques and business. The hostels are really good. You can have a very comfortable stay here. The only problem here is the connectivity which one can miss like going to the city for once. Placements are overall good with a current average package of 9.02 lakhs. Overall, an excellent B school if you exclude the IIMs

Great learning atmosphere with world class faculties. Faculties are at par with IIMs. Weekly Corporate lectures are something that stands out. The effort of Placecom team is commendable. Late night sports like cricket, basketball, football, volleyball,etc. 24-hours lively atmosphere. Late night maggis and dosas. Resort like hostel rooms. The amazing crowd from different parts of the country. The 2-year residential program that I am doing is full of learning and many takeaways. Good Internship track record. The only thing that the campus lacks is its proximity to a city. Chennai is 50 km away from the campus. Nevertheless, we have Mahabalipuram which is just 8 km away. Pondicherry is around 100 km away. Hostel rooms and class rooms are well equipped with Air Conditions. Thus Chennai heat is not a big problem. The fee is slightly on the higher side. But it is all inclusive of the stay and the foods. Foods are offered by Sodexo. The campus is clean. Our very endearing Bala Uncle personally takes a keen interest in the events and activities happening in college. He is easily reachable. Indeed a source of inspiration. Apart from this the college, every now and then, arrange for sessions from eminent personalities like Mr. Narayan Murthy, RBI deputy governor, Mrs. Vinita Bali, etc. These personalities share their experiences and enrich our overall learnings. The college has two main festivals: Sangamitra and Latitude. Latitude is an inter-college fest where several prominent B-schools participate. All said and done the placement scenario in the college is good. With 100% placements track record the college ensures that everyone gets decently placed. Great Lakes Institute of Management or GLIM as we fondly call it is a great destination for people seeking management knowledge.
