College Infrastructure
It has the necessary infrastructure facilities and equipment..we have library, computer lab, classrooms. IBS Pune do not provide hostels it's Ur responsibility to search one for yourself and college has WiFi. Classrooms are clean and canteen food is average.
Academics
I had studied PGPM in HR & marketing. There are well qualified teachers who teaches well. The curriculum gets updated with time and has research papers case studies which is followed by Howard university too.
Placements
It depends on the market and the company requirements. Marketing placements are good and then finance would be average and HR would be ok ok.. for me placement wasn't that bad I have been placed as a HR in one of the reputed companies
Value-for-money
Our time college fees was 7.25 lakh for 2yr So accordingly and the stream I had selected the ROI wasn't that bad either.
Campus Life
College life as in there is events functions from college side but for limited time so not much fun in that terms
Anything Else
It's a good college it depends on you how you enjoy your college life along with your studies as well.

College Infrastructure
The infrastructure is decent enough with good and spacious air conditioned classrooms, a good big library with various study material, an indoor sports room and a gym as well and also with wifi all around. The cafeteria is also clean, good and spacious. It doesn't have it's own hostel but there are many other private hostels around the college area which cover ups the accomodation issue. It'soverall having all the essential required for a b-school.
Academics
I'm persuing PGPM, as the only course provide by the Pune campus and the teaching staaf is also of very good and supportive. The study material is also updated well with the current status and also with it they train students in personality development as to be ready for the corporate world.
Placements
The placement quality is also fair enough as it majorly depends on the student how he/she performs during the entire course. There are also international placements by the college. The package also depends by the company and also on the economic status.
Value-for-money
The entire course fees for 2 years is around 8 lakhs and it is slightly more but also provides good quality of education and experience.
Campus Life
The campus is also decent not very big and not very small as it places roughly 800+ students. It also has all the essential requirements like library, wifi connection around the campus and extra curricular activities aw well with gym and sports . The location of the college is also good and quite with good parking space as well .
Anything Else
Overall it is a good b-school in its tier with all the qualities and essentials.

College Infrastructure
Yes my college includes all the necessary infrastructure, facilities and equipments. The facilities like wifiare also present and all the facilities are time to time maintained because they are regularly used.
Academics
I am studying MBA in HR field. The quality of the course and teachers are very good and the teching process is also very smooth. And all the things that I study takes me towards the job and make me job ready.
Placements
Placement quality of my college is very good in terms of quantity. The percentage of students placed is 100% but the maximum salary and average salary is a little bit low as compared. But the college is very supportive.
Value-for-money
My course cost 3 lakh per year and I think it is a little high as compared. Although I know doing MBA is costly. I feel that my money is not that much worth but overall if we see it is good to study here.
Campus Life
Campus life is average and according to me it is not as good as others. The campus is small and have very less space because it is specifically for MBA so thats why it is not large but the campus is well developed and safe .

Two years wear good at ibs pune. The facilities are good who impart great knowledge. The infrastructure is ok. They assure 100% placements. Overall good. They have around 15 clubs which organise various events like games and also cultural events like music, dance etc. There is a research club, bioscope club, focus club, etc. Ibs pune holds an annual fest called ZEAL. There are guest lectures where industry experienced persons are invited to take sessions on each subject.

Infrastructure: The infrastructure is below average, half of the seats are broken , 2 recent events of a/c short circuit, toilets don't function regularly. The campus is very small to accommodate more than 200 students. Recently 4 wheeler parking for students was disallowed to give space to faculties. College management: Absolutely the worst college management I have ever experienced in any of the college, I can literally write a book on how badly this college is managed, the director is unaware of half of the things happening in the college, hundreds of mails are sent to you on daily basis half of them contain mistakes which adds to further confusion, A student will know half of the hidden policies after he/she takes admission in the college. There are so called placement rules which you come to know in the 3rd. Semester which contains rules like , no negotiation about salary, no preference about job city to be given, if a person fails to get placed after getting into final round of a company 6 times then the student is thrown out of placements for some time until they seem fit. Subjects shown in the student handbook get cancelled at the last moment. Frequent rescheduling of lectures is very very common. They have no sense of time nor do they care about the students. Placements : Not even 5 core finance companies visiting the campus, they name companies who offer a role of "marketing of financial products". Company as a finance company which is highly misleading , they have a board were random name of companies is stated which never visit the campus which is highly misleading, Very low packages are offered and some jobs are equivalent of a graduate's post offered to an MBA student which is laughable. College curriculum: 2 simultaneous lectures of a same students are conducted in different rooms which means a student can attend only 1 lecture and miss out on another subject , this has happened multiple times which is shameful and pathetic. Please don't waste your valuable money on this college especially ibs Pune other ibs campuses are better anytime. Please consider everything and ask 100 questions before taking admission into any college. We suffered a lot don't make the mistake which we did. Thanks and All the best.

The companies which are coming here are judging this college only for front sales man, and even they hire one-two candidates. Its good for marketing students but have very few selected faculty who are good. Whatever, ultimately its only placements one it comes to end. So, this college is full of 21 age group students, BBA & others.In terms of placements these people to face placements problems depends on their communication skills. There is opportunities for lateral placements if one is above 28 to 30 age group.As college are worried if they are not placed , single reason being companies have more liking for freshers who are good in frontal sales jobs, understand there is very less marketing or consulting profiles job available. So if u are willing to do good studies in Finance and not looking for sales job, then try other colleges as over a course of time u will not feel good ROI in terms of money invested. This year there is good placement for marketing profiles only in financial institution sectors such as indiabulls,icici,hdfc. Very rare FMCG companies come, so those with engineering background and wanted to take marketing & not willing to take sales job in insurance selling or financial products, then stay away from this college. There is pool campus in which chances of getting placed is 1:10 in ratio, one need to try very hard luck. This year further students are waiting for some analytics, banks companies to come in January & February which can be helpful for 50% students remained to be placed.Thump up for college that it had till now placed 50% student.But thing is that this college reputation need to be strengthen a lot . Reason being lack of faculty that can give students good industrial skills, which results in less companies following us for good IT skills. Now, most of jobs will be IT based, excel based in next 6 years(backend) so if u are have skills in backend analytics then try other colleges. Here no investment banking or any other FI with credit management, underwriting companies for finance will come. Such occassion are rare in this college. So, its MARKETING, MARKETING & MARKETING campus placements.Lastly, i appreciate efforts made by them for placing students but truth need to be told as its matter of student career. One can do anything if famous companies never visit here or if they didnt find suitable candidates and stop visiting further.

IBS Pune is a good campus with mix culture students. Many come from north, south, east and therefore the student can learn a cultural mix as well as management. as a teaching faculty have a reach industry background student gets the enhanced and rich business environment knowledge. a placement is average and it goes around 6lac per anum. all other things are good. but college doesn't have their own accommodation therefore outside people need to look for hostel or PG in advance.

Moreover, students gets opportunity to both International and Domestic placements.

Mainly college infrastructure is not that big like others colleges have, 60% of faculties are good while teaching, students interactions...etc., if I am talking about the college bringing the company than it was well known for Marketing (if u gonna choose this field then its good for you), 2nd financial companies are also coming in good numbers. With a minimal package of 5L per annum. Although if it is about life in college than I would say wherever you go to any institutions, after few months you start enjoying with your friends whatever the circumstances or college is?

The college is good in terms of faculty, placements, and industry exposure. Faculty is having long industry as well as educational exposure and they blend theory to actual work. Placement average goes around 6 lacks. College doesn't have dormitory, therefore, student them need to search accommodation. Though college people help the student to find the accommodation but that are the costly one. College organizes lots of activities, for example, IT club LAN gaming, marketing clubs ad mad, research clubs, rotary club etc. Also, operation club organizes industrial visits. The actual placement happens in campus is around 90%.

At first, I was very confused to choose a Management college. Later I found a word from a prof. working in IBS business School that it provides value for money. It gives us a platform to build an average career after we get out from this place. Later consulting with many big professionals nearby my society I found to join this college as my best opinion.

The college is doing good in Marketing stream but weak in Finance and HR. The college is trying to improve the placement portfolio by bringing in new companies for placement procedure. The college has a well-equipped computer lab and a good library but doesn't have a spacious Auditorium. The teaching faculty is good in terms of imparting knowledge and providing corporate exposure by arranging industrial visits.

Every B.com graduate would like to take Finance as a specialization, but by doing specialization it will be a terrific risk. We will be not finding right internships, limited placements related to Finance. And for international placements, you can forget about it.

There is no significant justification for the investment we make. Industrial exposure is pathetic. Practical learning is definitely required for a student to develop but there is no such thing. Management treats students as slaves and they treat themselves as dictators. Placements for finance are not so good and internships are pathetic for a student who wants to make a career in finance. the student has to find his own internship in finance. but for marketing, this college provides a lot of opportunities but mostly at the sales level. I am not satisfied with this college and I don't recommend especially for finance.

Placement scenario of IBS, Pune is good. Faculty and infrastructure both are good. Faculties are very experienced and always focus on improvement in student. If one want to opt for PGPM in marketing then IBS, Pune is the best option for him/her. Further, college provide national as well as international placements.

Definitely its a career changer , lot of case study exposure , practical scenarios in and around college as we know pune and Mumbai had many industries from Small to MNCs . Towards curriculum of MBA college is serious in achieving its goals. Major advantage is diversity & culture as students from all 29 states available in college. So finally IBS Pune is a good B school to enhance your business & communication skills
