B LEAKS: NITIE 2

 

B Leak : First of All Thank you for giving your time to B Leaks. I Hope you are doing great.

We know if “it’s Ops it should be NITIE” and it had few best placements in Ops, but please answer all questions considering average placements and profiles

 

B Leak: How’s Life at NITIE? First Year and Second Year Life?

 

Before SIP its hectic. Sessions are conducted on a daily basis. Few hours to sleep. After SIP there is freedom. Do what you want. Then non PPO holders again prepare for battle in finals in mid second year.
 

Other than this case challenges, weekend opportunities all are voluntary.

 

B Leak: Being one of the best B-Schools, why NITIE is a black sheep (not known to many)? Is Media-com is not doing its work

 

Because this is India. SRK is known more than Irfan Khan. IIM Nagpur>NITIE.

People eat, sleep, shit brand here. And why NITIE is not a brand? That’s because of poor PR stature of the administration.


But let me assure you, the industry knows NITIE. You name a company (non-finance) I ll tell you an NITIE alumni working there.

 

B Leak: Do participations in committee and fests helps during summers/ placements?

 

 

Yes. - Committee seniors help in prep as well by influences.  I won’t dive into details.
 

But join a committee if you can. Worst case scenario, lots of parties and new friends. So no harm in joining committees.

 

B Leak: Which one is the best stream of NITIE (Academic & Placement wise ) and which one is second best and No for which stream.

 

  1. IM

  2. ISEM

  3. MM, a big NO

 

B Leak: “Ops are not the main stream of MBA” – A Layman. For general public MBA means – Marketing, Finance, HR. DO you think Ops if for Legends :) 

 

Ops is to  MBA grad what like khetibari is to an urban person. You can look down upon it but honey your marketing and finance departments will beg your supply chain professionals to cut cost in every quarter to save their asses.


Oh yes, switch opportunities are like 5-6 times more in ops than any MBA domain. The point is weather you sell burgers or lend money to people, one thing you must need. SUPPLY CHAIN

 

B Leak: In one of our leak it is found that summers is good but final is just ohke for almost all B-Schools course. Is it same with NITIE ?

 

Yes - it is more like a change in company policy of recruitment.

 

B Leak: What is Ops , which type of work one can do after MBA, Supply Chain hai kya, coureer company jaisa kaam legi company kya ?

 

 

Supply chain deals with end to end maintenance or creation of material flow.
c0ke bottle jo aap market me dehte ho, every material , chemicals, bottle plastic, labels sab kuch kaha se ayeg kaise ayega, kaise manage hoga, kitna stock rakhna hai , kaunsa warehouse me rahega sab thik hota hai supply chain me.
 

 

B Leak: How’s internal faculty (Profs) and how’s guest lectures ? [in general students of B-Schools are not happy with 80% of internal Profs (80-20 Pareto Rules )

 

Profs are pretty avg. Orthodox teaching style.
but Dean Student Affairs A.K Pundir is a legend. He does anything for students. He is a real life example of student loving prof.

 

B Leaks : In B-schools  it is generally considered that students having Work Ex from Consultancy or Big Firms are having added advantage in terms of selection of profiles during summers and placements. Is it true for NITIE ?? Hows life for an average or below average students at NITIE???

 

 

 

 

B Leaks : Does IIT / NIT / Big Names (colleges ) works during profile shortlisting (in NITIE) ?

 

Yes . 100% true . BRANDS matter

 

B Leaks : CGPA / GPA / Grad points are how much important for summers and Placement ??

NIT/IIT/VIT/DTU
core industry experience.

Would like to take few questions of Aspirants (We have shared a doc when they can ask questions) :

 

How good is PGDISEM ?

 

Pretty much nice in terms of placement. Course is niche and in demand in FMCG

As far as you are capable of. Firms operate on merit, not on your degree or stream.

 

Scope in PSUs

 

NIL

NIL.

How good are the opportunities for people from IT Services background(TCS, Accenture, Cognizant, etc)?

 

30% of the batch are of those people only. FMCG companies don’t want these people to be honest.

Any scope for long-term foreign work opportunity and if yes then how probable?

 

Does not depend on college. Depends on company. Summers there are 9-10 ppl every year going to foreign internships.  And new visa rules hamper foreign job scope.

 

Can students with 48 months work ex in core industry get operation consulting jobs?
