World class infrastructure, projectors, auditorium, laps, lecture theaters. As a part of corporate exposure we have Guest lectures, Conclaves and International conferences held every year. The greenery and the peaceful atmosphere is the best part of this campus. for placements the college should tap more companies and have more negotiation power.

Beautifully constructed infrastructure with lush green and happening campus. The crowd here consist of students from all across the country as well as global exchange students. 100% and satisfactory placement for MBA students. College is well known for its petroleum engineering and masters. Hostel facility is good, but mess needs improvement. As MBA here is a residential course, so that's what make it more enjoyable. University provides many different domains such as MBA, commerce, science, engineering, psychology, doctors, etc. Faculties here are best in their field which consists of a core as well as visiting faculty.

As far as infrastructure is concerned our college is having everything but only it is the little bit strict for the students who are pursuing PG courses due to so many Under Graduate courses are going on in the same campus. The only problem I can say for the college is that it promotes itself as an energy institute but there are students of general management are also there on the same campus and they usually get less preference in terms of placement as college was established for the purpose of giving Energy sector specialist students. As far as a hostel and other facilities they are very good but timings of using the facilities like library and campus should be increased.

The most beautiful thing about this college is the course they provide i.e. specialisation in Energy and Infrastructure Management. It has the most appropriate atmosphere to study energy management as the whole university targets the same. I believe there is a little scope of improvement for the Infrastructure of college. Classrooms can be made big with Staircase seating arrangement. Placement overall is good but as it more depends on students rather than college so I think college should focus more on selecting and filtering quality students so that in can further be improved. Overall I strongly recommend this college for better opportunities in Energy Management.

Talking about academics,there is more practical approach then theoretical approach here. It is really a worth of money to be here. Placements,sports, and environment here is really suitable to study. Placements are not up to the mark yet but they are constantly striving for it.

SPM PDPU has good infrastructure to facilitate comfortable 2 years on the campus. It has air-conditioned classrooms and lecture theatres, courts for basketball, volleyball and badminton, cricket and football grounds, and a good library and computer lab which is open till 2 am. They have option of AC/Non-AC hostels and the food is all the worth (However, chicken is served on Fridays only! Rest of the days, non-vegetarians have to survive on half fries and omelettes.) The USP of this college is its faculty. All professors are extremely learned and put deep efforts to teach the students. Apart from in-house faculties, the college has a considerate database of visiting faculties and often invites industry delegates to teach a full course. The college emphasizes on arranging one-day Guest Lectures by industry people regularly which provide good industry exposure to the students. (These are independently arranged by students of Guest Lecture Committee!) There are a lot of activities happening on the campus which keep students engaged. A 4-hour sleep is a dream! Symposiums, conclaves, annual fest, celebrations and much more. Students are always on their toes! Alas, I would say the college is worth the money with comparatively low fees and higher placements. It has had 100% placement since its inception in 2006. Earlier, the college was domain-specific and only provided MBA in Energy and Infrastructure, but has started General Management also since 2013 and have been able to place students at good positions with good salaries.

School of Petroleum Management is one of the best domain related college for any student to enhance their career in Petroleum Sector. It provides great exposure through industrial visits almost every month. We also get an opportunity to work with big giants of the petroleum sector for our 10 weeks summer internship program (SIP). We are also provided to study on many topics within the domain, which allows us for specializations as majors and minors in a different field of study. SPM also provides a great experience through various conferences and conclaves. Students here are given a full chance to enhance their skills. Many PSU's have been coming here for recruitment. Which enhances the reputation of the college and the students. A perfect place for study and residing too, as the course is a residential course where in the students have to stay in the campus hostels. Three life here doesn't allow you to sleep, but you won't regret the same.

-Best in class infrastructure. -Faculties are highly qualified. -Need to discover more suitable courses to offer and eliminate few unnecessary courses. -Need to tap more companies and provide more good options. -Give students the liberty to organise any event at any time using any equipment and make a student driven college.

The school of petroleum management is a medium for a graduate towards success and a step into the actual world away from the fantasy world. Talking about the infrastructure, the campus is a benchmark for all other campuses in the region. The curriculum drags us to the actual industry and prepares us to deal with the scenario there. To mention about the faculty becomes a must as they are the master in their field and have a more practical approach than the theoretical approach. Placement is a bit of problem for the school but the school is working hard for the same.

The college has good infrastructure and facilities. Provides you with theoretical and practical learning. Provides you with opportunities to grow. Challenges make you strong. Provides you with good atmosphere and family-like friends. The faculty is there to help you and mentor you. Daily activities, clubs enhance your knowledge. Conclaves and conferences give you the opportunity to learn management by your personal experience of managing the event. On other hand cultural events,annual fest contributes to enjoyment,fun, management learning and some amazing memories. College is student driven so all activities are managed by students.

SPM PDPU is a decent MBA college for people who somehow can't manage to get into premier B-Schools yet still want to have a learning similar to that level. Of course, here initiation needs to come from students more, yet a focused and dedicated mind will definitely help you learn and achieve decent placements. In terms of infrastructure, college has nothing to complain about. Lastly, it's not one of the best place to be. But, it's definitely a good one :)

Pdpu is that place where we learn a new thing every day. We have the residential course so we have to stay in a hostel and have the chance to meet new people with different background. The faculty over here has good knowledge & they share with us in different manas of case study,group projects,reports,assignment etc so that we can learn that what actually is happening in the industry.hostel facilities, infrastructure,library,all the facilities that are there in pdpu is so good nd appreciable.there are also the clubs like finance club marketing club human resource clubs etc.fectiavls are also celebrated over here all these activities and the events wich take place is driven by students only so we learn more and more from that.hence comming is pdpu addes value to my life nd knowledge.

School of Petroleum Management is equipped with well-furnished classrooms, huge library & computer lab, badminton court, table tennis room etc. The campus is greener and environment-friendly. College engages industrial visit to many good & reputed industries where students can connect the theory of academics to practical exposure. MBA at School of Petroleum Management is a compulsory residential program. Having on- campus hostel life is the best part. Doing late night projects, playing sports etc. Currently, I am a fresher so I would be receiving placement in the coming year but placements here are very good. For a hostel, girls privacy is taken care of by 24-hour security. Rooms are well furnished having Ethernet port for each student in that room.Each hostel block is having a television facility. Faculties at our college are having the Ph.D. degree and are exceptionally well in their field of teaching. Decent student crowd from varied culture and backgrounds from different parts of the country is what School of petroleum Management has. With an investment of around 10lakhs for 2 years and average placement of approx 7lakhs is pretty good.

As soon as you get a call from B-school curiosity starts. How would be the college? How would be the people out there? How would be the placements? how would be the pedagogy? This all is a start of a new experience. My experience till now at SCHOOL OF PETROLEUM MANAGEMENT is pretty good. Beautiful infrastructure enriched with greenery takes away the tension and energises us. Not just infrastructure but SPM offers guest lectures of esteemed speakers to enhance our corporate exposure. Lots of events and celebrating each and every festival with our peers make college life awesome. Apart from all this batch size at SPM is comparatively low which allows better individual learning. Another good part here is that faculty mentors are assigned to students to guide them throughout the course. Placement here is not up to the mark but SPM is having a record of 100% placement for 5 years and it is striving to make it better. Hostels here are the best. Various facilities are available which includes AC rooms with study tables,late night canteen facilities etc. All the professors here are Ph.D.'s from well-known universities and is exceptional in their respective fields.The crowd here at SPM is very decent with people coming from different background,different cultures and different discipline. This helps us to learn about different cultures and celebrating their festivals with them is too much of fun. Summing up all this and paying around 10 lacs for a course that offers you a good amount of knowledge,practical exposure and rich amount of experience and that too in a college having excellent infrastructure is worthy. Placements are the problem here but looking upon the efforts made by SPM to solve that problem, I feel it will be soon solved.
