To pursue MBA at NIST students must satisfy following eligibility criteria.
The minimum qualification to apply for admission to the MBA Program is a Bachelor's Degree (10+2+3 years of education) in any discipline which is recognized by the Association of Indian Universities, or any degree equivalent to the Bachelor's Degree, with a minimum of 50% aggregate marks in the Secondary / Higher Secondary / Pre-degree Examinations (or equivalent) conducted by a Board / University.
Those appearing for the final year of the Bachelor's degree examinations may also apply subject to completing their examinations or viva-voce, if any, before June 30. Such candidates will however have to fulfil the above eligibility requirements in respect of minimum academic qualifications for admission and furnish evidence to that effect latest by October 31. At the time of interview and/or admissions, they will be required to produce a letter from their College Principal / Head of Institution stating the exam dates.
Candidates with appropriate industry experience will be given preference for admissions. Their work experience will be given due weightage in terms of the organization, position held and duration.
Selected candidates will be called to attend Group Discussions and Personal Interviews. Multiple Group Discussion & Personal Interview lists will be released in phases, both before and after the Application Deadline. The intimation for interview & group discussion is done through registered post and e-mail. In the case of some programs, Group Discussion may not be conducted, in favor of a rigorous interview process.
The selection criteria for calling candidates for admissions is based on multiple factors as follows:
- Past academic performance
- Quality & content of the answers in the application form
- Work experience, if any , in terms of job content & organization
- Group Discussion & Interview performance (applicable for final admissions only)
- Extra curricular activities, other interests & accomplishments
- Competitive Test score (CAT, MAT, XAT, CMAT)
A combination of all the above factors are used to determine the eligibility of candidates to be offered final admission. Test scores are NOT the only criteria for selection.
A high test score does not guarantee a call for Group Discussion/Interview. The selection criteria are based on multiple factors as mentioned above.
The campus of the college is really good you can sit and relax im green well grounds,gardens,canteens. Infrastruture of the college is also really well build. The college is one the best in the city for studying engineering. The competition neck to neck with the top colleges in the city. The college is known for its placement, college life and mess food.
The reason i took admission into the college was because of myfamily. A lot of my cousins have been alumni of the college and strongly suggested me to get into this college. No, i did not give any entrance test for admission and was directly admitted based on my previous marks.
The fee for the B.tech course is around 1 lakh. This does not include the hostel and transportation fee. For that the students needs to another 1 lakh. Top ranking students are also offered some fee concession.
The placement drives starts from the end of the 3rd year. The average package ranges from Rs 5-7 lakhs. Top recruiting companies include dell, divyashree group, hcl, amazon, flipart, wipro and a lot more. A lot of students are hired and only few who do not score good mark are left behind.
Hostel and Facilities
The hostel provides a lot of facilities. The rooms are very clean and the food is tasty and hygienic. A lot of students can be accommodated in the hostel. The mess is not the same for girls and boys. Students get 3 course meal along with snacks as well.
The alumni of the college is very helpful. There were always available for us in case we had any issues and I am very grateful to them for helping me out in avarey situation for making my college years stressfree and fun as well.
Most of the college alumni have phd’s in their respective field. Tough they are also some faculties who are not that good. Most of them are very friendly and supportive as well.
The college campus is great. Students also get a lot exposure in various extracurricular activities. The campus is also surrounded by greenery and thus have a pleasant aura. There is a special focus towards sports like football, basketball, cricket etc. There is no discrimination on any basis. Ragging is also bann.
The university follows the semester system. There are internal and external which total constitute 100 marks. Students need to pass in both of them. There are three internal and the marks of best 2 are considered. The exam season is a bit tiring but of you study a bit regularly its not that big of an issues.
The college does not have any specific process for internships. But they do help stundets if they want to take up internship in MNCs, or govt sector. It will be provided in around the 7th semester. I am not very sure of the stipend amount as I did not go for any internships.
Loans and Scholarships
The college offers scholarships to students who are good in studies as well as those who are not financially strong. I dont know much about the loan facilities you should go and talk to the management.
