IIIT-allahabad-pic-1Careers360: How do you divide your weekly time between your studies and other activities?

Aman: Weekdays are spent in lecture halls and labs. It’s the weekends when we get the time to hit the field, play with friends. Very frankly speaking, study time is only the night before exams or any quizzes, or if we have to submit any assignments.


Careers360:  How do you get to know about the latest happenings in the college? Is there any in-house magazine or something else for that?

Aman: We have an E-magazine through which we get to know the achievements of institution. But apart from that, the mail system of college is the sole carrier of information around the campus.

Careers360: Which are the various clubs and societies in college? Are you part of any? Do you think they are beneficial for the students?

Careers360:  Are there any regular events or functions that take place in your campus? How is the participation of students on such occasions?

Aman: Yes, there are. The various clubs organize their events throughout the academic calendar with the stage open to all the students in college.

Is MBA from IIIT Allahabad worth to pursue?

Shubhangi sinha 1st Feb, 2020

Hello Animesh,

Pursuing MBA from IIIT Allahabad is not as worthy as pursuing MBA from IIM.

IIIT Allahabad is a low average college offers a 2 year MBA degree for a total fee of Rs. 2.72 lakhs.

Although placement depends upon the capability of the students, the placement record there is not worthy.

I would suggest you to prepare for CAT and pursue MBA from IIM because it from specific college in comparison to engineering college will increase your capability and command in the particular field.

Good luck,

Hope it helps :)
