Great exposure to university life where one can meet a variety of people from all over the globe.One can go for trekking,adventure sports,rock climbing,etc.Exposure to extracurricular activities is immense. One can also go for courses excluding the course he or she is pursuing the career in. Since there is a department for everything one can experience all overall development and growth.Most importantly government takes care of all our expenses.The opportunity is more than what can be-be expected. The teachers here are extremely helpful and cooperative and helps the students in every way possible. One can enjoy his or her time in the University of Hyderabad that's a guarantee.

To put in short, I value my college to the maximum. I really admire teaching of my professors their guidance about things. The freedom is given in the college. Infrastructure is quite decent in college. You may find a lot of diversity in terms of communities inside the campus, as it is a central university, people from different culture, backgrounds come over to learn. It is a great experience to meet such people and share views with them. Particularly speaking of hostels, they are really worth the buck that you pay for. The hostel fee is 500 INR per semester. Mess food is quite a bit decent and costs like 2000 INR a month. The best part about opting for MBA in SMS UoH is you spend less (Like 2,00,00 INR in total) and you can get a lot perks like the humongous library, exposure, connections etc. In short, My life at UoH is amazing, I recommend you to join the course.

The university Of Hyderabad is a prestigious university in and around Telangana and Andra Pradesh.It provides the students with all the necessary infrastructure at low cost. School of Management Studies provides the management course at a very subsidized price.It provides all the necessary technology for smart learning that enhances the subject knowledge.The school has well-certified faculty with Ph.D.s and a lot of industrial knowledge.The college provides industrial trips.There are a lot of companies who come for placements offering a package of 4.5 to 5 lakhs per annum.The school is highly heterogeneous where students come from different parts of the country which give us an opportunity to learn various cultures.

Sameena Banu Student Expert 11th Mar, 2019



 Infrastructure,College Life,Industry Exposure,Affordability,Student Crowd ,Faculty BOTH the colleges have there own advantages 

and both need to give entrance exam like CAT, MAT

but if you want to go for low investment with good ROI i would suggest School of Management Studies, University of Hyderabad,

where as Siva Sivani Institute of Management, Secunderabad being private has good placememnts like SMS -UH but fee is comparative high then university of hyd.

so based on various factors you can make a choice which to chose 

I Would recommend you to chose  School of management studies University of Hyderabad


I got 30 percentile in cat but I shortlisted for school of management studies University of Hyderabad MBA Gd pi .

Shravan Hari 1st Mar, 2019
Hi Rajendra, please refer to the previous year gd topics asked and get a clarity on which domains the gd topics belong. Prepare on them and make some notes on the topics which will help. You would generally be asked on lot of current affairs topics , so get to know about most of the general current affairs. Also be exposed to some of the management famous topics like one of them is Socialism v Capitalism etc. For personal interview be strong on the things you would mention on resume. Be prepared for Tell me about yourself, Why MBA etc. Be aware of the few things about the domain you would like to pursue, say Marketing or Finance. Watch gd pi interviews conducted at various b schools in Youtube to get an idea on how the interviews proceed. You can take those mock gd-pi exams in many of the online portals like Cracku, Career Launcher etc. Which can be obtained by payment.
