Student Reviews

  • mba Student


    I have nothing bad to say about my college all i have learned here was very helpful to me once i moved and it even helps me today. I made some amazing friends here and they are my friends till today. The quality of the education here is amazing.  Only the negative aspects of UPES are that it is too much stric but sometimes it is also better for the students only.

    Entrance Exam

    CAT is the entrace test which got me through in this university MBA program. i had scored 85 percentile and then i had to some for an interview as well. But this is not the only entrace test there are other management entrace test as well like MAT, CMAT, GMAT etc, scores of these entrace test are also accepted.


    During my time i have paid like around Rs 7 lakhs for my 2 years. Though there might be some rivioin in the fee now but it will around this only. Hostel Fees was separate apart from it, Students are required to pay for Security and Caution Deposit, Industrial Visits, Alumni Fees, Personality Development Fee and so on.  


    100% Placement Assurance is provided by UPES there is a dedicated Placement Department with highly qualified and experienced Placement Officers they work in close coordination with the HODs and CRs and have got an exceptionally good connect with the Industries.

    Hostel and Facilities

    The hostel facility of the college is great and it would cost you around Rs 1,00,000 to Rs 1,50,000 depending on the type of room you get into. The rooms are offere don the shring basis as well as i think now they offer single rooms too but i think they will be pretty expensive.


    Yes the college has an alumni network and conducts regular alumni meetings and provides facilities in getting interaction with the existing students yes I could get interacted with our alumni when I was in the college.


    The faculty of the university is one of then reason i have a great job/. They were very coopoertaive with me through out the course as i was not that great student but they helped to get through concepts and even called me for extra classes and were alsways available to clear my doubts.

    Campus Life

    UPES has got dedicated Labs for all departments concerned. A lot of interdepartmental and inter college competitions are held in the campus, which include games like football, cricket and annual sports


    All courses in UPES are in Semester Pattern. For MBA, there used to be 4 Semesters. Each Semester had the Mid Semester Exam and the End Semester Exam. The Final Marks was computed on the pattern of 20% (Mid Semester Exam) + 30% (Class Performance and Viva)


    In a management course, internship is a very important part as you need to have some experince and know how the process works before you actually get into the process. The university does provide internships.

    Loans and Scholarships

    The university has a tie up with SBI bank and i think OBC as well so you can education loans from there. Also, if you are good well in academics you can geta scholarship as well.
