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 placements front, but other than it didn’t disappoint me even a single bit. Ahmedabad and Gujarat’s schooling as a whole don’t make you sufficient to speak in English fluently, which is where Indus has done a terrific job. I was overwhelmed as the professors were adamant that they would speak only in English and even the examples they gave were in English. A lot of the teachers were South Indians who don’t knew Hindi or Gujarati anyways, so it was more of a compulsion for them which worked in student’s favour. Lucky to be a part of such a privileged university and learning so much that is helping me in my career today.
The modern techniques have become a new romantic with colleges as teaching on normal blackboards and explaining has become a thing of the past. Thus, won’t appreciate that much, but the way the teaching and syllabus was there was brilliant and better than the state university syllabus. So much advanced and global crisis situations and all were included in our subjects and learning financial markets things were among the major new things that were included in BBA course at Indus. The computer labs and the practical rooms were unbelievable as studying there was about learning and enjoying learning.
Many thought that the faculty were biased towards girls and that is again not true. If girls were the toppers, it’s because of the hard work they put in and some students, obviously male, thought we are getting advantage of being a girl child. Poor they as we worked harder to be in good books of teachers and maybe a number or 2 extra, we would have fetched in practicals because of that, but all were treated equally in theory. The faculty were not biased at all and looked after everyone the same. The weak students were given more opportunities and were asked to stand in front during industrial visits. I was happy with how they conducted themselves in the classrooms and thank them from the bottom of my heart for their help.
Not a single student from our batch got on campus placement, and the college has spread many false rumours, but I will put them to rest as they were all false. None means none got the placements from the university.
There are 2 good hostels at the campus, and both are well-maintained. The facilities that are there in any hostel were there. The university's engineering department is quite famous, and students had to fight for getting a seat at the hostel. The university campus is not that big, and they are planning to have new hostel buildings soon and that will solve the problem because the university is growing and the number of students coming for studies here will increase in time to come. For BBA, there were hardly any outsiders who can provide me details about the hostel or else I would have shared. The gist is that there is a hostel facility available and is also quite good.
Peach, great, or shall I say on the moon, is what the university's infrastructure is. The buildings were unique and had all the facilities that should be there. The building in which BBA classes were conducted had a library, an auditorium, and green rooms. Some labs were getting updated as the engineering department was about to shift from main building to Bhanwar building. The buildings had lifts, and we still used stairs to spend more time at the campus and go through the length and breadth of the college. The ground was small and was mostly occupied by boys. Sports are not a priority at the university, but the convention center was always loud as students rehearsed for dance and drama throughout the year.
The crowd makes the campus, and it was world-class. Mostly locals but privileged people and one can see many high-end cars at the parking which was relatively small actually. The university has a bus facility, and I used that to go to the university. The minor parties at the canteen, the dance at the Garba nights, we had so much fun at the campus that putting all of them into words won’t be possible. All in all, Indus was great to be a part of and one should try to get admissions here for BBA as the university forte is not just the engineering department.
After a lot of discussion among friends and planning the future right, I took admissions in Indus University, which was a little far off from my place. The University was majorly known for its engineering studies has started the BBA program off late. The University did everything right to explain to us the concept of management studies and the importance of management students in the corporate world. They lacked enough industrial exposure and finally, the placements, which were probably none. Li... Read Full Review
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 drasticall... 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 ...
