Both the colleges are good in terms of placement, Faculty & Corporate Exposure and infrastructure etc.
However I'll recommend you to go for Jaipuria Institute of management looking at the ROI aspect.
The average package of for Jaipuria college is around Rs. 6.7 lakhs per annum and the highest package is 17 lakhs per annum.
Whereas The average package of KSOM college is Rs. 4.8 lakhs per annum and the highest package is 13.50 lakhs per annum.
