IMS DAVV is the best MBA institute of Central India after IIM, Indore
by Swati Singh
IMS DAVV offers MBA in Computer at a fee lesser than what it will cost for most of the UG courses. Fees was certainly one of the points why I chose this institute but other than that too, it accepts a very high CAT percentile. The procedure is same that is followed by most of the B-School. After a highly volatile graduation, MBA looked more refreshing as couldn’t have gone on with engineering anymore. Didn’t know a single thing about financial subjects still passed MBA with flying colors and all credit for that goes to IMS. When I went through colleges and their course structure MBA in Disaster Management looked more promising to me as in a way. It had nothing to do with what I studied during my graduation but the course was quite enticing. IMS is hardly known but deserves more than what it offers and I will be giving a pin-point review so that it helps you come to this prestigious college for studies.
Because I am supposed to answer why I chose this course, my answer is I was fed up of engineering. The other reason being the disaster management field looked more attractive to me. Along with high profile job that we get through it, we can also work for the betterment of the society. That was the personally the biggest motivation for me. The college has backing from the government and the students of disaster management are hired by state and center’s home affair ministry to look after their proceedings. Also, the corporate these days hire disaster management students to make sure that every chance they are taking is worth taking or not.
Student teacher ratio was amazing as there were just 90 students in MBA in Disaster Management. They too were divided in two sections and overall there 15+ teachers. Talking about their experience, it was immense as the course is started just 6 years back and all the faculty that were there at the college were teaching all this while. They knew when to push and when to press the accelerator. Some unwanted topics were included and they skipped that to make sure we study pin-point topics. Faculty were of great help and just like academics, faculty’s role in the college exceeded my expectations.
Unfortunately, during the fag end, we were struck with Covid-19. The placements though begun and many of us also got placed but the college has a very good placement record which got disturbed. A separate session of placements was organized in September 2020 but overall, how many got placed through that is something I don’t even have the slightest idea. Covid disturbed the equation of all the university as I had friends from many other universities.
IMS don’t have a hostel in its campus and students coming from outside had to Nalanda Campus. The Utd campus was huge and had all the facilities but hostel was only at the Nalanda campus of the hostel. The Nalanda campus was around four kilometers from the campus but the travel could be easily managed. From bus, auto, taxi, one can find almost all means of transport to travel to college from hostel. I didn’t stay at the hostel and thereby my opinion on how the hostels were won't be of any use. However, the hostels if we leave the distance part were quite useful.
Don’t ask the area size as it was immense. Now coming to the facilities, it had everything that one can imagine. Over 30 colleges of the college are at the UTD campus. The location is close to highway and far from city is one of the disadvantages. The E-Library will solve almost all your purposes. From projects to assignments, one will find all the related book at the library. There were three massive canteens at the campus and still it was difficult to find a place as all of them were entirely occupied. The sports ground were huge and everyone had the opportunity to play as 3 cricket matches can be held at the same point in time. A recently developed shooting range is operational at the campus and it was paid but worth trying at a sport that is growing rapidly in India. The university buildings are not that attractive as the university is fairly old.
School uniform was back at IMS as a grey suit for both boys and girls was compulsory. Apart from events, we didn’t have the choice but to wear that even during the scorching summers. MBA’s entire strength was close to 1000 as there were 8-10 streams and management students fest was among the best rated events of the university. People used to walk in numbers to be an attendee of what we were to present. If covid was not arrived, I would have rated the campus life as one of the best but Covid ruined many things as our farewell, placements, and degree receiving ceremony were all cancelled due to that.

IMS DAVV is one of the best MBA colleges not just in Indore but in Madhya Pradesh as a whole. There’s no point talking about IIM Indore but in comparison to PIMR, Medicaps University, or Sanghvi Institute, IMS DAVV is much better. Almost all the students were placed with a package of 4-5 lakhs. Even though the institute is a self-financed one, the fees is lower than any private MBA colleges. For a fees of 1.2 lakhs, if we are getting placements then there’s no better way of calculating ROI t... Read Full Review
When we talk about the options of management studies in the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh Indore, then the list begins with the Indian Institute of Management, Indore and then goes on and on.
