I did my B.Com from Kristu Jayanti College in Bangalore. The minimum requirements to get admission here for the B.Com is 50% in HSC exams. The complete registration process consists of three sections. First, there is a fitness test. This contains different decision-making questions related to your language abilities, rationale, and quantitative thinking. After a student is able to pass the first test, they become eligible for the other two containing a miniature show, followed by an individual meeting. This college's B.Com program is affiliated with Bangalore University. There are numerous private schools and Universities in Bangalore, but Bangalore University has the edge over private universities. Kristu Jayanti College was no less as the course, openness, and everything was splendid, and I have no questions that this college is right up there at the top of Bangalore University.
B.Com was full of projects, and the projects offered here were in the Corporate Finance Group and Accounts Group. The course was comprised of six semesters, and in the initial two, we had our center subjects like cost accounting and economics. Then, you find that the last four semesters are the most crucial ones. You can opt for subjects of your area of interest. Banking, Insurance, were some of the optional subjects. We were given industrial projects during the 4th semester break, and before entering the final year, we had to present that report to the college. The final year was more of projects, and the final semester, we had to be ready for presentations and guest lectures every now and then.
There are two kinds of faculty in our college: full-time staff and visiting workforce. The head of the department was Mr. Vijaya Kumar R, who has done PhD. All the faculty were highly experienced and had teaching experience of around 10-15 years. I was fortunate to get taught by probably the best faculty in the college. They were always open for suggestions and ignoring the student's voice was not mean to be as they obliged with all our questions. Unlike other schools or colleges where less-experienced teachers teach students in their initial years, this college takes care of students' basics from the Day 1 they get enrolled. Unfortunately, most of the faculty are from Kerala and that can be a disadvantage for someone who has grown up in Bangalore all these years because Mallu accent is indifferent to what we were accustomed to.
Before I wore my graduation hat, more than 60 companies came to recruit us. The companies that came were Flipkart, Amazon, and FedEx, among many other multinationals. The minimum package offered was in the range of 3-4 lakhs per annum, and the placement rate for B.Com was 60%. I sadly missed out, but it didn't matter as I was not happy with the salaries offered.
The college doesn't have a hostel facility. However, Bangalore is a student city, and one is not far from a good residential facility or a paying guest facility. Our budget will help you find rooms of your choice as the range may vary from 5k to 50k depending on how much you are willing to spend.
Look, Kristu Jayanti College campus is small but one of the cleanest you will find. The buildings are marble white, and one can't even spot any dirt or anything on the walls. Every Sunday, the buildings are cleaned, and sweepers are hired in numbers to make sure the floors and outer of the college stay and clean and hygienic. Bangalore has dust problem, but our college can be termed dust-proof as it is a little far from any sort of construction and the location of the college is such that not many vehicles are found in the college proximity. There are common rooms for boys and girls and washrooms on every floor of the building. B.Com classes were held in the UG block, and the other 2 blocks on the campus are PG and Admin block. The college has a cafeteria in each block, and one can get a wide variety of food at these cafés. A garden is at the front of the admin block, but no major sporting facilities. The indoor sports room is there but is always full with the same students who mostly denied having a match with us.
I could say that this college was an expansion of my great school days. Bangalore colleges are known for the fests and events that they conduct. Kristu Jayanti was no different as we had events in all the calendar months, and as UG students, we were the front runners in most of those events. We also led the chart when it came to performing at the annual fest. The fest had a compulsion to include one skit from the Bible, which made us learn a lot about that. Convent college, so rules were tight but making friends with students from various parts of India was possible here. I enjoyed every bit of my time at the college campus.

KJC is not known for PG courses as it is relatively new. If that’s the reason than one should look at various other sides of the college as well. Some strictness that you will see in most of the Bangalore colleges are visible in KJC as well. Uniform is must and so are the ids around your collar. To appear in the exams the attendance has to be over 80%. The autonomous status gives them a license to change the syllabus, or the exam dates, and the ratio of internal marks. Since the college is loc... Read Full Review
I am an ex-student of Kristu Jayanti and therefore will give the most honest review about the college. The college is managed by the father of CMI and they are also the ones that run the Christ University. Kristu Jayanti is relatively new and has gained the status of Autonomous college. I did my B. Com from there which is affiliated to North Bengaluru University. The college is strict and rather more than Christ in a sense that the Uniform is compulsory and you will not be excused for keeping ID... Read Full Review
