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.

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.

A great place for business education with huge value

Batch of 2017 | PGDM
An awesome place for a business education. Located at about 60 km from Chennai city, the school has a spacious campus of about 40 acres with the serenity and greenery. The campus is platinum-rated LEED campus. The infrastructure is top class with every basic need for a student is catered to. One of the main talking points is the student peer group. There is a huge diversity in the peer group at Great Lakes. The presence of two full-time programs i.e. PGPM and PGDM adds a great value . In addition, the PGPM course strength is 380 and PGDM (2 Year) course is 120 in each batch. Hence at any given time, there are at least 620 students in the campus. Secondly, the faculty in here is world class. Well, the qualified in-house faculty is a major plus point. In addition to that, visiting faculty from reputed B- schools in the country and around the world come over to Great Lakes. This makes up for a huge value addition for future managers. Another major factor at Great Lakes is the placements. As far as PGDM is concerned, the average salary is about 9 lakhs per annum. This is pretty decent considering that the batch is made up of students where the maximum work experience is about 24 months. Rest assured, the placement cell is very active and always looks to bring in more and more companies to recruit every year. From an insider’s perspective, there is room for improvement for the food available at the mess. However, there are many food delivery startups at the college which solve this problem. Another issue is the trouble in transit at night. Nevertheless, the school provides transportation in case of emergencies. In light of all the points mentioned above, Great Lakes Institute of Management is a great place to pursue management education and the period of stay here can be said to be a true value addition to one’s career.

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.

A great school is known by its faculty and Great lakes institute of Management is one such B-school where you can find the ultimate blend of top notch faculty. The college has most of the faculty coming from other top B-schools of the world. The curriculum is tailor made for one year and the pressure that students go through while studying in the campus mould them in perfect business managers. The case based studies help the students to think on the lines of modern corporates. The subsequent guest lectures by the corporates further enhances the quality of education. Ultra-modern hostel facilities with LEED platinum rated Green campus make the college infrastructure unique in its own way. Placements are on par to any other b-schools except top IIMs. Overall , the journey in great lakes is a transforming one , and MBA aspirants must opt for this as it is a safe bet.

Great lakes is a perfect B-school for MBA aspirant and for people with 3 + work experience with IT background , it is heaven. The college has all the infrastructure which is needed for a B-school. From awesome classrooms to all the recreational facilities , the school has it all. Corporate exposure is at par with top b-schools. One of a unique qualities of this school is its top-notch faculty. Most of the faculty are visiting and come from top b-schools of the world. Competition within the college is cut-throat with students from a variety of backgrounds and with superlative skills. Placements are also good and improving on a year on year basis. Overall the college is a safe bet because it is 1-year program the ROI is better than many of the B-schools in the country.

When I stepped into the college I had in my mind various thoughts, but as soon as the college started and I was exposed to the mounting pressure of 1 year MBA , I told myself “ Let the transformation begin”. Great Lakes is one such college which will force you to transform yourself so that you get the business ready within a span of 1 year. The PGPM course is totally relevant to the current business scenario, and the top-notch faculty leaves no stone unturned to make sure that we are different from the students of other B-schools.

Great Lakes Saving Time and Forging you Future

When I was selected for Great Lakes, after clearing the interview process for 1-year Program, I was in a dilemma, whether to go for it or for other experience. I, having prior experience of 4 years in IT industry, opted Great Lakes over other as with it was able to complete my PG in 1 year, thus, saving a year of time. The campus of the college is very good; Platinum LEAD certified green campus, away from city's noise & pollution; having all the possible facilities available like Gym. All the Hostel room and classes have AC, In-house CCD, Canteen, Utility within the campus. The faculties are top notch, with rich international experience in academia and industry. There are many visiting faculties from the best international B-Schools. The course is revised in accordance with the changing demands of the industry and it's requirement. The placement committee, PlaceCom, is the most active committee of the campus, conducting AT LEAST one Guest Lecture every Thursday, without any gap or break, and sometimes 3 too. The schedule of classes is a bit hectic, but the course is one year, so, they have to be like this only. As our dean says, "We Are Different, Hence We Make A Difference"

I am currently a second year student. My overall experience of studying at GLIM, Chennai has been fairly good. The college offers not just world class faculty but also very good industry exposure-- CCS thursdays which are very famous. Infrastructure and placements are good enough though the major chunk is through IT-sector. Also the college is situated very far from the main city which is an issue that usually the students face.

Having spent almost 4 months at Great Lakes, I can now say that a one year MBA is no joke. Little did we imagine about the rigorous and hectic schedules which have become our way of life now. A couple of days on this campus, you start realising the importance of being on your toes every moment of the day. There can never be a lazy day. But, are you equipped to face this challenge? Life in a B-School can put both your mind and body to the test. It is only when both mind and body are in an alliance; you can walk on this sky rope. Great Lakes is an amazing place which provides us with myriad options to get our dose of physical activity daily. We can choose from a vast variety of sports being played here, or going to the gym, or jogging around the beautiful campus, and get our share of an adrenaline rush. These things aren’t done to prove yourself to the world but the personal gratification is the reward you get here. As someone who has been on both sides, I can say it feels a lot better to be on the fitter side. It’s not easy but it’s all worth it. Let’s all strive to include some sort of physical activity in our busy lives here and stay ever more enthusiastic and on-the-go to achieve our goals. Great Lakes is the place which helps you nurture all your needs.

The college has everything in place. The only catch is IT dominated placements. You will get a decent profile in the field of IT. Also, the college needs to start giving HR as majors. This will ensure the presence of HR in alumni network. Also, college should try to focus on other industry verticals during placement seasons. I am quite happy with the level of education they are bringing on the table. Faculty and infrastructure are also at par

The Great Lakes Institute of management is the best comparable for its infrastructure. It is 27 acre LEED Platinum rated green campus – one of the few in the world. With ultra modern resource centre, full of world class literature and electronic databases, it is the best for a student to keep on being updated. Fully air-conditioned residential accommodation for bachelors as well as married couples managed by one of the world's leading facilities management company is a great opportunity to interact more with people. Ample recreational opportunities inside and outside campus including the beautiful beaches of Mahabalipuram at a stone's throw is a plus point.

Money Value of your Time

Any MBA aspirant would want to get into the best B-School in India; I was no different. As I was working outside India, I was left with only preparing for GMAT. However, for now, there are not many B-Schools that accept GMAT as a valid admission score. Thankfully, Great Lakes is one of them. Having a prior experience and a good GMAT score landed me here at its PGPM program. The campus is lead-platinum rated green campus, with amazing infrastructure- having all the sports and recreational facilities available on campus. All the hostel rooms have AC, there is an A-Z utility store, Medical Facilities, etc. The faculties are top notch, with rich international experience in academia and industry. There are many visiting faculties from the best international B-Schools, viz. Kellog's Harvard, the University of Miami, University of Manchester. The faculty-student rapport is very strong. The course structure is revised every year based on the industry requirement. The analytics program is the best in India. The subjects offered in Core, as well as, specialization terms are unique and based on a futuristic prospect. Coming to the placements, the placements has only scaled up in the respect of the variety of profiles offered, the average package, the number of companies visiting the campus, the roles where the students end up with, etc. As our dean says, We Are Different, Hence We Make A Difference.

One of the premier B-schools in India. Great Lakes is relatively a new institute but the way it has created an image of itself is really commendable. The institute has very good infrastructure facilities. Location at a good location in Chennai. The institute intake only experiences grads with more than 2 years of experience, that is plus point because, with all the student experience, there is similarity of thought plus lot of experience sharing which is not available when the students are fresher. The course is 1 year and you need to give in extra effort to complete the same. You don’t get time to relax even for 1 second. We are continuously allotted projects, case studies to groom our self. All the students need to mandatory take the hostel facilities because the classes go on an entire day. The faculty is very good with both Academic and Industrial experience and they know how to pass it on to the students. Our Dean is a man of honour. His image commands respect. The institute is well disciplined with all the facilities available indoor like Gym, Table Tennis, Pool etc. We have lots of clubs and societies that actively engage in conducting events throughout the year. Students are always encouraging to take initiatives and we have an entrepreneurship cell just to promote that. The crowd is also good. Library facilities are good with an appropriate mix of both online and offline resources. Placement facilities are very good. Computer facilities are good with high-speed internet available all time. Institute has Bloomberg Terminal to help finance students increase their knowledge. Institute is good in Extracurricular activities like Dance, Drama etc.

The faculty and level of education make it the most sought after place to pursue further studies. The level of creativity and experience of faculty adds to the exciting and enhanced college life. Weekly ccs activities being organised by the college helps the students to interact with the people from different spheres of the corporate world. The diversity of students in the institute is vast and improves the peer group interaction. Everything available within the campus makes it comfortable for the students. The presence of approximately 20 committees and each of them effectively working.

I joined this college with really high expectations because of the PGPM program it has and which is really famous. I would still say that the college faculties are really good and state of art infrastructure but really low on placement side. PGDM program was newly started as compared to PGPM and college wanted to encash on the popularity on PGPM for PGDM but since my batch was the 1st batch it could happen and most of were left unplaced.

Great place for IT professionals

I was enthralled by the panoramic elegance of this place, when I first visited the campus. College is pretty far from the city, but the towns around this place have the amenities we need. This is a LEED Platinum rated green campus, which means the whole campus is pollution free. In addition to the nutritious food they provide, one can enjoy a healthy life here. The college has got best infrastructure in place, be it lecture halls, gym, library, hostel, canteen. The faculty and the facilities like Bloomberg terminal etc. are phenomenal. They continuously update the curriculum and many courses are analytics driven. Just to add, the analytics course here is ranked No.1 in the country. A lot of exposure to industry. Eminent personalities, CEOs, industry experts address the batch once in every week. Placements are great for people who are interested in IT, analytics, consulting, and eCommerce sectors. Some research in linked in about the alumni tells that most of them are consultants (and not sales managers). This is a distinctive aspect I found about the college, which is important for career path in the long term point of view.

We have a world class faculty ( second to none, and i mean it, not even IIMs and ISBs). We have an amazing campus. We have some superb clubs and events and fests, amazing Student community ( fair mix of north and south indians). Well maintained college operations from Sodexo.. The only thing college lags in is PLACEMENTS!! It does not go with rest of this colleges legacy.. Rest it is improving no doubts. As its said , we will take over ISB as the best ONE YR program in the nation shortly.. #GREATLAKERforLIFE.

It has been a very hectic experience in this one year at Great Lakes Chennai. But, one thing which I must say is that professor available to us are of great standards. It has been a great learning experience. Even the infrastructure is a too good. We have AC accommodation and good food in mess. We also have access to gym, TT and other sports.
