like on the value of ABS...
is ABS same as ASM...
placement scene of such a large batch of 500 students..
lets take it one by one...
1.Value of ABS
- Alliance University School of Business is a BRAND in the league of colleges such as IBS Hyderabad, BIMTECH Noida,SDMIMD Mysore,We School, ITM, XIME,Christ to name a few.The point of differentiation in college ranking comes as Alliance is not AICTE recognised.And everyone knows what it takes to get an AICTE recognition.Alliance University has its roots from Alliance Business Academy which was affiliated to Bangalore University & one of the best B Schools in South India after Tier 1 B Schools.But in 2010, Alliance University was formed so that it becomes autonomous & could equip its students with world class education, infrastructure, industry interface,placements,etc..I have stayed in Bangalore for last 9 years.I know this from word of the mouth as well as from interacting with many seniors & pass outs.But its true that the fees is high wrt the colleges that I have mentioned.So you have to decide your monetary priority.whether you will be able to cope up with the fee structure, you will take a loan or your parents can pay it off,etc.May be most of us have taken alliance as we could not get through some colleges which ranked higher than it.If the fees was 2 lakh rupees less we would not have discussed much but the fact is that as Alliance is providing us a platform to fulfill our dream which we might have missed, so there is a price to pay.
2.ABS same as ASM
- No, absolutely not.These two are different entities in every respect.Moreover it is known for UG programs.ASM has no rankings, no pedagogy, no intellect capital as ABS does, even if they are coming under the same umbrella called Alliance.The exposure is limited & it is preferred mostly by the local students of Bangalore & Karnataka.I will try to provide you more details in a few days time.
- Well it's a million dollar question.And another thing is ROI...yes,thats the buzz word.but trust me you will definitely get your desirable ROI depending upon the hard work you put on.Hard work always pays off.And when there are 700 approx batch mates you have to give an extra effort.Whats wrong in that?You are going to become a manager, going to lead a team, going to get the best out of the worst situations.So take it as a challenge.Believe me the placement scenario is going to improve in the 2010-2012 batch & then our batch 2011-13 .For the exact data please refer to the following post on page 32 of this forum- http://www.pagalguy.com/forum/mat-state-level-cet-related/61546-alliance-university-school-business-2011-a-32.html
Please take your decision wisely & do not let anything to compromise your decision.But when you take it, be confident & be happy of what you have decided.
