ISB&M, Pune, IBS MUMBAI or IPE Hyderabad for PGDM Finance, please suggest better one.
To give you a better idea regarding which college is better for PGDM in finance I would like to give you some details for each of these colleges.
ISB&M( International School of Business & Media) situated in Nande,Pune was established in the year 2000, offers a plethora of courses, PGDM in Finance is one of them. One can apply by CAT,MAT,CMAT,XAT scores. The cut off for various exams are 60 percentile for both CAT/XAT & 500 for MAT. The 2 yr. fees is 10 lakhs excluding hostel charges. The placements are good with average package being 5-6 lakhs, highest is 15 lakhs and major recruiters are ICICI, KOTAK, American Express, & ING Vyasya Bank. A lot of student driven events like conferences & seminars are organised in the campus which help them to interact with the industry people & get a know how of the corporate world.
IBS Mumbai (ICFAI business school) established in 1995 gives admission on the basis of CAT/XAT/MAT/IBSAT scores. 65 percentile is the cut off for interview stage. The fees for 2 yr. program is 8 lakhs excluding hostel fees. Regarding placements average salary offered is 6 lakhs highest being 12 lakhs & major recruiters are ICICI, HDFC, Kotak, SBI life. A lot of extra-curricular activities happen in the campus of which you can be part of.
IPE Hyderabad( Institute of Public Enterprise) established in 1964 in Telangana offers a course in banking, insurance & financial studies, one can apply through all the national level exam scores. The cut off is 70 percentile for CAT & 650 for MAT. 2 yr. fees is 8 lakhs excluding hostel costs. The placements are also good, average is 5 lakhs & highest is 9 lakhs and major recruiters are ICICI, HDFC, Jarur Vyasa bank, South Indian Bank. Compared to other two it is around 50 yrs. old so definitely it's alumni base is quite strong.
So as you can see that the fees is a bit high for ISB&M but the placement scenarios are similar for all 3 colleges, even the companies visiting the campus are almost same barring a few, only the IPE is a bit older & hence a more stable college compared to other two. So my suggestion is go for IPE.
