When you enter into great lakes the first thing you will notice is the amazing infrastructure with world-class classrooms, ample facilities for recreation and AC hostels with all the necessary amenities. But the most powerful thing that attracts attention to this college is the pool of world-class faculty it has to offer. Most of the faculty members are visiting faculty and that too from the prestigious institutions of the world and from India too. The 1-year course is really hectic but the 100% placements record over the last years compensate for all the hard work that a student put throughout the course. For an MBA aspirant with over 3 plus work experience, Great Lakes PGPM course, without a doubt, acts as a catalyst for his or her future career.
