Average college with bad food quality, high fees and not so good ROI- Great Lakes Institute of Management Reviews
Great Lakes Institute of management is the very popular college in Chennai, but some recent reviews have told a different story. There is yet to unfold a lot about the quality of infrastructure, food and high fee. This college is the dream of so many people who want to get admission in a reputed MBA college. But here we have something to share with you that tell a different story.
Great Lakes Institute of management Reviews apart from the glitz and glory of the campus prestige there are certain things that are not so great and needs attention. Here are some of such issues discussed.
SCHOLARSHIP AND FEES STRUCTURE
The Course Fee in Great Lakes Institute of Management per year is approximately INR 18,50,000 which is pretty high hence, Loans are needed. Some banks have tie-ups with the Great Lakes Institute of Management. There are also no scholarship options, so no student gets any other scholarship. This is quite expensive to get admission and complete any course or degree program here for students belong to a middle-class family.
PLACEMENTS & INTERNSHIPS
The class is 90% full of IT GUYS, from, Wipro, TCS, Infosys etc. Most of the companies that visit the campus are IT companies.2. 95% companies will offer a salary of 7–9 lakh per annum including variable components. Most of the companies that come are for IT Roles and the rest companies that come are from nook and corners of Chennai. Another disadvantage is that 95% companies will offer location of Chennai as companies hardly get people for Chennai location and hence they offer only Chennai location.
FACULTY AND HOSTEL FACILITY
Majority of the professor are not well qualified leaving a few. The staffs are like mind-blowing buggers from some village of Chennai. Hostel accommodation to food is really pathetic compared to what the students pay.
DELUSION ABOUT PAY PACKAGES
Many people have mentioned average salary of 12 lakhs which is totally inflated. Amazon which they say offers 30+ lakhs actually offers 9 lakhs CTC. What college does are they even add the bonuses and gratuity which you get in subsequent 5 years and then say 30 lakhs which are obviously a talk in the air.
The food of the mess would be rated better than many other institutes, but then it is not so great as well particularly most of the days’ dinners are bad. There is a lot of scope for improvement in this area.
Distance from the city
Approximately 60 km from the city, it becomes an issue when you would like to venture into the city. The journey takes the maximum of one’s time and by the point one is back at the campus, the students are extremely exhausted. But then, you can’t do much with it. However, Kalpakkam and Mahabalipuram can satisfy your need for good food to some extent.
However, this college has satisfactory past performance and many students have completed their management courses from this college. The total fee for the course is a pain point and it may increase for prospective students but this is among the top colleges in India.
