LBS was a choice by default but at the end of the day, I got what I was looking for. In fact, most of the students left the college happily because the college promised us decent jobs and they fulfilled their promise. The college is run by a prominent group of Delhi and have various contacts in various fields. To keep the students motivated every 15 days or so they would call up some or the other celebrity to give pep talk. I indeed saw some of the heroes I admired at those guest lectures. Vivek Oberoi, Sudha Murthy, and Sanjay Kirloskar among others. The job scenario was such in the capital during our times that people dropped their value just to get any job. In such a tight scenario the college also propelled us to start something of our own after the college. For that, many entrepreneurship drills and programs were organized. LBS did more than one does for their students as even the students who couldn’t get job got hands on experience by participating in the corporate projects that were organized every year.
No leeway from the college life in MBA. One should take the matter off seriously if they have opted to go for MBA. Attendance is compulsory as one never know about the surprise tests or the practicals that will be up for the day. All that adds to the final scores and it’s not the final exam scores that count. The best set of infrastructure was set up to make academic part look easy. Many innovations and high-tech technology were used not just in class but the discussion room as we would have quite a few classes there as well.
More than numbers, I would speak about the quality that the college has focused on. Not just that they have to be passed out from renowned B-Schools but also should have some teaching experience behind their back. Some changed during two years but the replacements was like for like. The management or the HR department of the college deserves more credit as they took care of the faculty as well as the students. None has the power to dominate be it faculty or the students. The faculty were always available in case of doubts and also took our questions seriously.
IT companies are everywhere as they were at LBS campus as well. HCL Tech, Tech Mahindra, Mindtree were some of the prominent names. Other than that, companies that came include Kotak and Axis Bank among various others. A large chunk was also of MNCs that offered managerial posts at the Call Centers. It was definitely not anybody’s first choice but as they say beggars can’t be choosers. They offered maximum jobs and also pay scale better than the others. Placements were more than average as 6-8 lakhs after MBA is a good deal. Many people in our organizations with same degree do earn more than us but that’s because of the college they have passed out from. Thus, keep LBS in loop but aim for higher ranked colleges.
Hostel were not inside the campus but were quite good. The hostellers were provided many facilities from good food to TV sets in the rooms. Again, the criteria was such that students shouldn’t belong to Delhi-NCR, if they need to get the hostel services. The girls hostel too was amazing as the hostel were common for all the courses and grad and PG students would be seen sharing spaces at LBS hostels. I hope the rule should change because the time that is invested in traveling can be saved if they allow students from all regions to be a part of their hostels.
The college’s infrastructure is neither that huge, nor that attractive. Many would differ with me on the huge aspect as 10 acres is not less by any means. I stay in Bangalore now and have seen colleges over here. 10 acres is by any stretch can be considered huge, if you have seen colleges over here. Moving on, the college had nice garden and enough greenery in the campus. The outfield of the sports ground was amazing as it was one of the best to play football or cricket. To make sure students have some form of toxicity in their body to cope the long lectures, a branch of CCD has been active in the campus.
Learned a lot of things, made some friends and more importantly got a job in a city which I never thought, I would reside in. The college doesn’t have many fests or glamorous receptions at the campus. It was more of a military school as 9 am sharp we had to be in our class. We couldn’t leave the campus before 4 pm or better you have a reason to leave. It wasn’t an extra ordinary life at LBS but it wasn’t less by any stretch of imaginations.
In terms of management colleges, there are plenty of them in Delhi/NCR. LBS has the best faculties as most of them were hired from XLRI/IIMs and other top B-Schools. The college doesn’t give an assurance letter, but the placements were great as 90% of the students had the placements. MBA and PGDM are different from each other in some ways, and I being a part of their PGDM program can say that PGDM is better than college’s MBA program. Mostly because more project works were given to us, and w... Read Full Review
Master of Business Administration [MBA], 2016
Posted on: Sep 13th, 2021
MBA is more or less like a compulsory option for students who have pursued B.Com. Getting admissions at LBS is not that tough, but still, one has to have a decent percentile. The reason for choosing LBS was more like a force as some of my friends applied there, and rather than searching for a job based on B. Com, doing MBA looked more worthwhile. LBS is more into itself as exposure provided was much less, and I have seen students of various colleges they were taken on tours almost every month. W... Read Full Review
