CMR Institute of technology aecs layout VS presidency college KEMPAPUR which is best for MBA
If I talk about CMR University then the education is very high quality and it organises various activities and festivals for the students and the students not just in academic but also in partaking in extra curricular activities. No doubt,the college provides all over development growth. Its infrastructure is also decent. The faculties here are highly qualified and make the students industry ready and they completely cover the syllabus and helps students as a mentor in every issue.
Coming to the Presidency college it also offers its students all the facilities as like the CMR and if I give you my opinion then somewhat it is better than CMR University and the reason is in Presidency College the placements are also high as compared to CMR University .
So you can choose presidency college over CMR if you want better placements.
I hope it helps you!
i want to be take admission in cmrit Bangalore . i have doubt about fee structure as i am pgcet student. how much it would be?
CMR institute of technology AICTE approved is a private institute affiliated to visvesvaraya technical university (VTU) has A grade certification by NAAC.
As you are b-school aspirant and want to get admission in MBA program.to be eligible for the program candidates must secure 50 percent marks in graduation and must appear in PGCET/CAT/CMAT/MAT/KMAT.
MBA fees for full course through PGCET is 4 lakh rupees including hostel charges 1,10,000 rupees p.a. and 90000 course fee.
after paying kea fees we should report to the college,at a time of reporting should we pay all the fee at a time or can we pay in installments
Kea stands for Karnataka Examinations Authority. Yes you've to pay KEA fees every year but I don't think you've to pay college fees every year. I had read somewhere that is illegal for the college to collect extra fees apart from that of KEA fee. Please check the KEA website for details about it. Even though extra fee can be charged 38k seems too much .
First year you need to pay directly favoring KEA through challan or online payment(if applicable). Then report to college taking an admission order and there just pay prescribed college fee and hostel fee(if applicable). Rest three years you need to pay both KEA fee and college fee in your college only.
Feel free to ask your queries here.
How good is CMRIT Bangalore for Mca. Can I take admission there?!
I can state that the quality of its MCA program is now much better than what it used to be a couple of years ago. Overall, the college has brought in faculty members armed with doctorates; this has increased over the last couple of years. Also, as some of my closest friends have graduated in MCA in 2020, I have personally taken their view which I am presenting here.
They say that lecturers could clearly clarify all the students’ doubts - better than 5 years ago; that resulted in certain concerns expressed by graduates. Also, the practicals/laboratories are now better equipped with the latest systems with modern configurations (hardware and software).
With the design thinking pedagogy (imparting problem-solving skills) in full force now integrated within the academic curriculum itself, students are naturally in better positions to learn and thereby apply their knowledge for better causes.
Hope this helps.
