Medi-Caps University is affordable even though it’s a private institute
by Sumit Kumar
Medi-Caps was under the central university and went autonomous after we passed out. Thus, it’s now an autonomous university and probably one of the best in Indore. The buildings are renovated now but despite being a little old, infrastructure was and is still definitely the best amongst colleges in Indore. BBA requires not much of criteria as 80+ percentages in 12th is enough. After turning autonomous they have included an entrance as well. The problem is the location as it is located in Rau which is fairly distant. Thus, Indore Railway Station, Indore Airport, and Indore Markets are all long rides from the university. One good thing that Medi-Caps did during our time was that they didn’t make the dress code which is quite common in private colleges. However, they have changed with time and a dress code has come into the picture now. The other good thing is that they are operational only from Monday to Friday and Saturday and Sunday are officially off. The first two years were the golden period as all aspect of college life such as friendship and participating in events, and other happened in the first two years. 3rd year was really hectic as many extra subjects were included and as a senior, we had to mentor the juniors as well.
Academic wise, I would say a little exaggerated because attendance was more than strict. Every subject attendance was calculated and it was not a cumulative one. The emphasis on attendance is just too strict. Nevertheless, though, the practical sessions and student-teacher interaction were quite high. Learning was always at its peak because the bookish knowledge didn’t account for all the subjects. As business studies students, students were made aware of the businesses that are going and what the future awaits. If attendance could be made a little lenient, I would have no doubts in saying that Medi-Caps is the best.
Hats off to the university for the number of professors that it has every single course. BBA itself had around 30 if I include all specializations. Faculty were thoroughly knowledgeable and even though the strength was on the higher side, professors would remember good students names. Good doesn’t mean academically good but one has to be proactive in practicals and other activities of the college. If you are one of those means you have hit the jackpot. Student partiality was done as if weak students asked doubts; the professor would refer them to one of the intelligent students of the class rather than doing it themselves.
Placements were much better before they went autonomous as a proper training program was organized at the beginning of the final year. It was a long program as we were called on off days and extra time was taken to prepare the students. Many big companies like Vivo, IPCA Labs, and Amazon were among the top recruiters for the BBA department. The average then was 3.5 lakhs and the overall placement percentage was also quite good. I got placed through campus and still associated with the organization, I joined through campus.
Hostel back then were just 4 as 2 boys and 2 girl’s hostels. The capacity now is more than doubled. In our days the hostel students whom I knew had complaints that electricity was a major issue and with the development that has been done not just in the campus but in the city overall, I don’t think it would be the same. A lot of construction was on back then and I assume one of the construction buildings must be that of hostel as well.
The university has changed drastically in the last seven years. The buildings weren’t the same as corridors were dirty and there was a dustbin on every alternate floor. Thanks to Swachh Bharat Abhiyan that when I last visited the university there were 100 of them. The campus area is enormous and the greenery aspect has been taken care of really well. You will find shaded corners as there are numerous trees on the campus. The university’s central library is well stocked with books and one will have no problem in finding any book of their choice. The canteen was open and quite big as well. However, just a single canteen in such a huge campus was still less and the university should have one more is what I would suggest. SBI’s ATM was also there at the campus just beside the Shiv Temple which was also at the campus. Sporting facilities were gigantic as the huge playground ensured that at least 3 different matches can be played at that ground at the same time.
Many things have changed at the campus but one thing that hasn’t is the charm of the annual fest MOONSTONE. It is not just the biggest fest of Indore but is one of the top and best fests of MP colleges. Having participated at the fest during the first year, I can say that it was an experience of a lifetime as I haven’t performed under such a large crowd ever in my life.
I joined it in 2015 and the very next year, it became autonomous. We too were shifted in that and sadly for us, the previous year papers and notes collected became useless for us. College is a place where along with studies students also have the opportunity to take some time off and pursue the things that they are dearly interested in. Wishful thinking is already high in engineering students and college also raised hopes to an extent. The reality but was quite different as most of the subjects ... Read Full Review
