Comment: 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. We just had a couple of them and provided the learning that we had from those tours, it wasn't sufficient. Managed by a group of wealthy businessmen, LBS should have done a little extra. LBS was more or less a continuation of graduation life as things didn't change much. Most of the students were from NCR, and the crowd was more or less the same as that of Kirori Mal College. LBS were primarily a B-School that will help you get placements if you have done well throughout. This is it about the college as one shouldn't expect a change of fortune kind of stuff from LBS.
If I answer all the questions asked in the review, the course I joined was MBA, and my specialization was HR. The only reason I joined this course was to have some form of placements, but it's not that easy that everyone will have placements. The college is quite strict with timings and all and also attendance. Don't skip college if it isn't necessary, as students of LBS were not that helpful. It was like a race where everybody was making their mark. Completing the finishing line was tough, as maintaining good CGPA was by no means an easy task. The course subjects I felt were little extra as some of them were of no use because in HR what's the need of learning about climate change and all. Even if it affects the global business structure, it has nothing to do with our subject.
Good or above average would be the right term for them. Each department had its own sets of faculties as some were common while specialized faculties were there for specialized subjects. The number was probably around the mark of 20. The college is been operational since 2004, and they know the role that faculty plays. The faculty are therefore chosen quite carefully, and a special unit has been there to monitor their teaching style. Student's view was taken time to time and to ensure the secrecy is maintained, every semester, the game called Fish Pond was played. If you don't know what that game does, then you can Google it, but more or less, it was students' opportunity to reveal what they felt about their faculties without your name being leaked.
Call centers have come in huge numbers in Noida and Gurgaon. A lot of MNCs have set-up their call centers here and HR students were mostly placed in those companies as it is evident that Call Centers are one such place where making people work and make them stay is the toughest job. If one thinks that working in a call center is easy, please join one and see the kind of thorns an HR officer or manager has to face. The college provided us a decent package as for those who couldn't make it will only know the pain of not getting placed through campus placements.
Even though the college has ample space, they haven't started the hostels at the campus. They have tied up with corporate to provide residential facilities to the students. Both boys and girls' hostels are located at different spots and there's no meaning in staying there as staying in a flat or PGs would be a better option. Hostel facilities were complacent enough, but the price that was commanded was on the higher side.
The college area is of 10 acres and is a lush green campus with gardens and trees in big numbers. The importance that an IT plays in providing students the best of knowledge is something that college believes in. The smart classrooms were excellent as rather than watching everything on the boards, there was a huge LCD installed, and viewing it even from the backbenches was easy. The college's canteen was excellent as the food menu was quite vast. It was impossible to carry lunch because it was an hour's travel and I had to leave my place at 7.30 in the morning. Asking mom to prepare lunch daily and then consuming at 1 pm, which was lunchtime, was of no use. Rest other things are needless to mention as they are more or less the same everywhere, but E-Garage that had workstations, a small reading area, and a dining hall was the area where students and teachers both used to spend a fair bit of time.
Look, all seems good from hindsight when one enters the college. However, rather than focusing on making the students competent, the college relies on making individuals introvert. Never share your secrets, or don't express your ideas is what the college feels. I didn't take that and went my way as I can't be an introvert.
