Coming from Rajkot, Ahmedabad was like a competition which both the cities have among themselves. People of Rajkot are seen as competition here, but I made friends quickly as the crowd here was quite friendly. I stayed at my aunt’s place, and the university was 10 miles from there. The travelling was not that easy as Ahmedabad transportation system is poor. Luckily the bus services started as soon as I entered the second year. The university was new when I joined, and things changed drastically by the time I graduated. The campus is compact but was great. The main building and the other building, called the Bhanwar building was still in construction. Once the university has all the facilities started, it would be one of the best in Ahmedabad. The teaching was good, but there were issues during mid-semesters, which led to postponing the exams often. Events happen, and as students, we were taken on an industrial tour. A trip to Jaisalmer was arranged after the 4th semester. Students bonding programs, seminars on career plans and all were organized at the university to keep us in a happy state and motivated.
The concept of theory and practicals was in place. Monday to Friday all theory classes and Saturday, a relaxing day, were used for practicals. Many fun games, hypothetical situations were created and made us learn various business tactics through them. We were made arch-rivals among ourselves, and projects were awarded to keep us engaged even during Sundays. Group studies with male and female counterparts in them to promote gender equality. Indus has done exceptionally well in its academics and beyond that as well. We were given extra books and study materials for reference, and we got to learn about various industrialists' journeys through that.
The university failed to keep faculty stuck to the university. Many new faces during each semester came and gone by. Some of them who remained throughout were good and don’t think anyone from their end didn’t do the needful. Some of them pretty strict, while some took an easy path. Some paid price of differences with the management and eventually left the university. But, just like the crowd over here, the faculty members were also quite friendly and cooperative.
The university couldn’t get us placed, and the things that we learned during the course can be used for developing our own business. I still wonder when management students complain about the placements. For me, it was realising that may help me skills polished for my business endeavors. It was the main reason I joined this university, and I was happy with the kind of learning that happened here.
There is a boys and girls hostel at the campus but it was more for engineering students as they totally occupied it. I thought of joining the hostel, but no BBA students was staying at the hostel, and therefore, even though I had to travel long miles daily, I still chose travelling to be more comfortable. Most BBA students were local Amdavadis and since it is their newly started program, not many students know about it thus far.
Ahmedabad maybe not that clean, but the college campus told a completely different story. The campus was cleaned daily, and the buildings were shining. The building shape and architect was unique, and even though a lot of construction was going on inside the building from outside it was picture perfect. The college library was small but had books we wanted. Open areas to sit with friends and do chit-chat without much of a disturbance. The university’s location is such that it doesn’t have much hustle and bustle around the campus. College bus was the only way because otherwise, it’s hard to find an auto or bus during the evening. The university has a huge auditorium and other than staff room, and the principal’s cabin was the only area with air-condition facilities. We had enough guest lectures and events at the auditorium and to escape the heat, auditorium was the best option. The college canteen was tiny but one can have snacks and tea as there were not many options close to university. The college ground was good enough to play volleyball or kabaddi as it was not sufficient to play cricket or football.
The crowd made the campus beautiful as students from well to do families were the ones who joined this university. I have never seen such a fun-loving crowd as there were no brawls or even tiff among the students in campus. I made friends, but most of the students were reserved as they didn’t bothered making friends. On event days, students of all streams joined hands as the university management made sure that one stream shouldn’t dominate any college event. I was glad to be a part of such a lovely campus.
As a resident of Ahmedabad, we have many colleges and universities in our city. Self-financed colleges are mostly under-rated because people think that they charge fees and offer nothing in terms of studies. It’s not the case with Indus University Ahmedabad, as the college was much better than Gujarat University colleges. The kind of projects we were given, the exposure, team bonding that we learned, and how to be compassionate towards others. It was a great experience as the college failed on... Read Full Review
The prime reason for me choosing Indus University was that my best friends were enrolling here. Also, from what I heard, students at Indus mostly mind their own business, and college life without friends would have been unimaginable. We all were more or less sure to do an MBA at a later stage, and to start off our management studies, we enrolled in the BBA program. Indus is not that known for BBA, but we still went ahead with it. After successfully passing out I feel, I did the right thing. Ther... Read Full Review
Ahmadabad is known for providing quality education, and Indus University has lived up to the expectation. There are not many courses to choose from for a commerce student, and a few years back, BBA was like a compulsory course if you want to do MBA in the future. This is just for the sake of saying because BBA has not much to do with its namesake daddy course, MBA. Indus University is ever-growing, and after attaining the autonomous status, the college has made sure that it betters itself with e... Read Full Review
I choose Indus University Ahmedabad as it was close to my home. Though it’s on the outskirts of the city but was near to where I put up and decided to take admission here despite Indus University fees is high. Facilities, infrastructure, faculty, education style are all good, and no issues with that. In the end, if no placements are provided the studies look meaningless and that is why I would never recommend IU to anyone. Various colleges in Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar guarantee 100% placement ...

Indus was originally an engineering college but it has introduced many other courses after becoming University in 2012. For Amdavadis, Indus University is a good option as it is a little far from the city and the crowd that comes is generally the rich one. You can see the parking lot with a lot of luxury cars. The transportation is poor as there are not many bus services and an auto or taxi will cost you 200-300 daily. The hostel is there but Amdavadis are not allowed. If you are from another ci...
