Which college is better for MBA ... PSG coimbatore or Anna University chennai????

batchasikkander17 26th May, 2020


I would suggest you to do MBA program in any of the IIM's because recruiting management will prefer students from IIM. Anna University and PSG are good for their technical courses (B.E/M.E) but they are not well known for the management courses. However coming to your question prefer choosing Anna University it will be better than PSG.

I hope it helps.
