Student Review

This is one of the best colleges for business education in India. Not much hyped unlike the IIM’s but it is surely one of the great learning institutions.

SP Jain does certain things differently in management education space which makes it a great institution. Let me elucidate all these points here.

  1. First of all SP Jain has a different way of admitting the students. SP Jain not only gives weights to academics & grades but also to overall personality of students. Students have to submit their complete profile in terms of certain questions asked by college. In a typical SP Jain class you would see engineers, commerce graduates, art graduates etc.
  2. They also give importance to work experience which B schools in India normally give no importance at all.
  3. They have exchange programs with various fine institutions of the world which makes learning fun.
  4. College believes in value based education .Also College does not believe in the concept of rat race. Grades are important but not that much. I have heard stories of some of my friends who were in IIM A, that there is serious rate race over there in terms of grade and at times people do attain their degrees in 3 years. This pressure you will not find in SP Jain.
  5. Faculty is Excellent. Mixed faculty with expertise in theory and also faculty having a vast industry experience.
  6. There are lots of things which you can pursue over there.

Counsellor conclusion

As I searched on Quora this college is the best college in Maharashtra. The faculty here is very good all teachers are very supportive. As a counsellor i suggest you this is the best college in Maharashtra.
