College Infrastructure
As far as college infrastructure is concerned, it has a great classroom built-in with projectors. A huge library with a study room on the ground floor has one sports arena where cricket, basketball, volleyball, etc can be played. Hostel facilities have 24/7 wifi facilities that are cleaned daily for both boys and girls. It has one hostel outside campus where it has two canteens and a sports arena too, which makes it fun if the campus sports arena is occupied. Overall Good Infra.
Academics
Currently, I am pursuing MBA in Sales and Marketing which is the second-best specialization to choose after HR. Teachers of all the specialization are extremely good who focus on their student's all-round development before entering any leadership role. The curriculum is updated as per industry standard along with Guest lectures and various other Research studies and guest faculties from institutes outside India. All the exposure to case studies, competitions and live project make you job-ready.
Placements
The quality of placements is above average and almost 100% placement is provided as some students opt-out from placements to start their own venture to become job givers instead of job takers. The batch of 2021 had the highest salary of a whopping 33.6LPA and an Average of 16.5LPA. As the current pandemic led to an online process it had some issues related to connectivity but overall a good placement.
Value-for-money
The course fee is almost 20 Lakhs including hostel and mess fees for 2 years but considering the online scenario, it can be lesser for the upcoming batch. Overall experience in college life is a little bit difficult in online mode but yes there is much to learn and helps to upskill yourself apart from the course in your personality. For me till now it has been an enriching experience.
Campus Life
When we think about campus life as a batch of 2020-22 we haven't explored the physical campus life but virtual campus life is full of fun, learnings, and personality development in the form of frequent guest lectures, faculty interaction, various clubs, and committees outstanding support staff. Overall the campus life is great both in virtual and offline mode.
Anything Else
Apart from the overall experience shared above, I would say to the upcoming batches that start building your network and interacting with your peer's seniors and peers from other colleges to make your learning and profile development more exciting.

College Infrastructure
Due to covid, our classes have been in virtual mode. We are yet to see our campus. College has a separate Hostel which is 600 meters away from the campus for 1st year students (Boys). Second year students stay in the campus only. For girls, both year students are inside the campus.
Academics
The curriculum designed for IDM is one of its kind and offers great learning aspects of Core Sectors such Railways, Highways, Roadways, Airport etc. It deep dives into various aspects of Contract Management, Tendering, Bidding, and Project management along with general MBA subjects. Since, it focuses on Infrastructure and Project so the entire course covers 35% of Finance subjects. The course also offers students to understand the nuances of Operation management, Supply Chain and Logistics.
Placements
The placement at any B-schools revolves around many factors such as relevant work ex, profile, interest and yes your LUCK! Students gets opportunity in almost all domains except HR. Please refer to the placement report available on the website. The point of caution is that if you are aiming to get into MBA-IDM, please get at least one year of experience as the subjects are heavily dominated with technology (core sector)
Value-for-money
395000 per semester
Campus Life
No comment as I am yet to join the campus.
Anything Else
The best thing for students at SCMHRD is that you are eligible to participate in almost every corporate competition.

The college not only provides the basic infrastructure but also focuses on imparting key skills necessary in excelling highly competitive professional career which requires continuous up to date knowledge of the current environment with facilities like Bloomberg, Oracle. Further, interaction with corporate professional is done through student-centric corporate drive.

College is not as a newcomer expects from B-school. Very bleak infrastructure, badly managed by people who have no clue about student culture and exposure even industry exposure. But placements are good to great. Be in top 20%,you're sorted. Weak culture, weak facilities. Not liberal college. ROI good. Only specific people will be satisfied from the college. Not good option for work ex people!!

ROI is one of the best. Brand name good. Placements are good to great, until unlucky. Infrastructure is bad - average. The faculty is Average. The crowd is average. Life is average. Less on exposure. Hostels are bad. Culture wise very averagely. Final decision Depends on what aspirant is seeking from the college!

The campus has no proper sports facilities, conference call facilities, hostel and internet facilities. Students don't get good industry exposure. The faculty isn't good. There is no concept of majors and minors. Too many courses have to be completed in 1 semester, which leaves no time for in-depth learning. Placements are good only for few specializations.

All infrastructure facilities are very good and there is nothing better that can be thought of. To enhance corporate exposure, the college keeps on arranging corporate drives. The outside learning through peers makes college life enjoyable. Everyone gets placed in Topnotch companies and so no placement concerns as such to be addressed. Better maintenance in terms of guards and electricity will improve the existing structure. The in-house professors are well versed in the industry and so no expectations as such. The student crowd is highlighted in terms of placements which denotes highly qualified ones. The ROI is much better as compared to many other colleges.

I have never regretted choosing SCMHRD. Though the B-school which you would imagine seeing IIMs , are not fulfilled here. At the same time , when is comes to high ROI thru Placements. I would strongly suggest this is the right place. It is only for those are self-determined to achieve what they intended or else you have every opportunity to lose your track

The college gives ample opportunities to challenge the ordinary, enhance knowledge and come out as a more confident person. The faculty is as good as any of the leading Institutes in India. The campus facilities cater to basic needs but have a lot of room for improvement. Met people of diverse backgrounds and made some great friends! Slogged those two years but had just as much fun.

All the recreational facilities along with basic amenities of Good Wi-Fi and computer labs. It's already the best industry exposure one can get. The out of the class learning coupled with the classroom learning makes way for a complete development of an individual and hones him/her.The best placement offers. The hostels are already up to the mark.They are among the best in an industry in terms of teaching the concepts highlighted in the laurels brought to the college. It improves the overall ambience of the college. The ROI is way better than any other college.

College life at SCMHRD is very challenging. The semester system followed here has 27 credits each semester and we have around 15 subjects. The faculty is all PhDs or those pursuing it. They have a lot of visiting faculty coming in who add a lot to the varied learning we get here. The college has everything needed to survive for 2 years. It has 4 hostels one for each year for men and women. The classes are being redone with modern facilities and so are all the common rooms. The college has 2 computer labs, a Bloomberg lab with 4 terminals, a SAP lab, an Oracle lab and an analytics labs. It has a swimming pool and a gym to help keep us in shape and we have one of the best auditoriums of a PG college. The campus is home to two labradors who were brought in to help keep the student morale up. The college has always had a good placement record, records which are crisil audited every year. They have four specialisations and infrastructure management which were recently launched. The college is completely student run with over 18 committees handling every process right from the admissions to the placements, giving us first-hand experience of being managers. We host Neev, the third largest b school fest in India and boast of A-list celebrities every year. Life at SCMHRD is often hard under the burden of a thousand things to be juggled but it teaches you humanity. The people who I have met here are going to be friends for life. The sense of camaraderie that the college instills is something you have to experience.

As soon as I converted SCMHRD, it became my permanent choice instantly. Now not a second goes by where I don’t feel proud of the same. The college provides us free usage of classrooms and other faculty rooms along with the facilities like printer service and usage of other equipments. Sports room is almost always open and students are free to use it as per interest. The hostels are designed in a manner so that seniors and juniors stay in close contact with each other. The SCMHRD campus is located in an industrial area due to which we usually connect with the employees of companies nearby with ease. Also, the institute arranges frequent company visits to enhance our overall company exposure. Another event like six sigma supply chain systems strengthens our understanding of the business world outside. Apart from the various club activities, one thing that I love the most in here is caring for dogs. This is the biggest stress reliever for students. Our NGO ‘Shapath’ is working progressively well on Human trafficking issue. In shapath, we work for any corporate or any sort of work they offer for a period of 3 days and the salary for the same goes directly to the NGO. Similarly in ‘Prayatna’ we teach students who can’t afford education. Hostels at SCMHRD are very well designed with facilities like Wi-Fi and LAN. The washrooms are attached and rooms are cleaned periodically so that students can focus on just the academics. Academics being an important focus area at SCMHRD is handled by some really quality hands. Teachers like (financial accounting) and (admissions, HR) are amongst my favourites as they make sure everyone gets the concept involved in their respective subjects. SCMHRD consists of students with a diverse background as both MBA and IM students mingle and stay together. Apart from this, most of the students in here are of younger age ,20-28 years, and hence can relate to each other better as they understand each other’s needs better. Apart from that the interaction also helps to touch various viewpoints when discussing a case or when working on a project. In addition, the usual nature is of party kind that keeps the stress levels of rigorous academics in the check. Coming to the affordability, we have good food joints nearby and in addition, the industrial area has its own benefits when it comes to placements. All in all, SCMHRD provides an enriching experience along with a keen insight on what the future holds for us in the business world.

Life at SCMHRD has its own ups and downs. A lot of committees, so a lot of competition. A lot of competition means a lot of opportunities to grow and excel yourself. Every day you have to fight with others to prove your worth. Each day a new learning opportunity presents itself.

SCMHRD- Pune offers a diverse learning ground for someone willing to invest in personal fulfillment and self-goal drive as much as a regular PGDM course in a chosen specialization. 2 years of my MBA alternated between theory courses, multiple internships with the finest companies, socially relevant field projects, fund raising for business ideas and also trying out innovative business solutions on ground. That faculty, especially in the marketing research and sales management fields got you to think and explore beyond the ordinary.

SCMHRD has been a life changing experience for me where you are continuously thrown out of your comfort zone to explore your hidden potential. The rigorous curriculum, the nonpareil placement records, the global exposure has not only helped sharpen my intellect but also hone complimentary skills towards grooming myself for a future leadership role.

"USP of my institute is 100% student driven councils and have no barriers and have shown and developed professionalism for which it is known. SCMHRD probably has the most rigorous MBA course in India with more than 50 courses spread over four semesters. Everything at SCMHRD including admissions of students is managed end to end by students (Except for two areas academics and exams). If you are in the top committees at SCMHRD you essentially are doing two MBAs, one in the classroom the other in the committee room (For the cost and time of one). The day starts at 8 in the morning and ends at 2 (in the morning). The best thing about SCMHRD is that in the two years at campus it prepares you for all ups and downs in life if you are ready to give your two years to the campus. I probably have not learnt in my entire life, that I did ina year here at HRD. A brilliant college not only for HR, but also for other specialization. Excellent curriculum and busy routine, where sleep is a luxury. We had an awesome life here!"
