What are the placement% and average package if i do mba from ims in e commerce disaster management or hr management?

Sparsh Sarswat 23rd Nov, 2019

If you are looking college with placements, so don't choose IMS, Ghaziabad because the average packages are 4 - 5.5 lac. and e commerce there are very less companies and the average package is 3.7 lac, if you can't go for Amazon, coz amazon have different openings and when we talk about HR, so leave that, only 1 or max 3 students among the batch of 360 got campus placements in HR, otherwise you have to compromise, with the salary, brand name, carrier etc and the packages for HR are 2.2 - 4.2 lacs.

Best of Luck
