[OFFICIAL] SPJIMR 2-Year PGDM Admissions 2015-2017

Welcome to the Official thread for S. P. Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) Admissions 2015-2017 for ...

Hi All,

Charith Appachu (PGDM 2013-15, Finance) shares his experience about the finance course and his two years at SPJIMR.

We'll be posting more write-ups on other specializations shortly.

Cheers.

~The Statesman

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi, I am Charith Appachu, a 2015 pass-out from the PGDM - Finance batch at SPJIMR. I had 2 years of industry experience as an Analyst / Developer at Goldman Sachs prior to my course at SPJIMR.

To provide you with more context on where I come from, I am from Coorg in Karnataka and pursued my Electronics and Communication engineering from PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore. Post my stint at Goldman Sachs, I decided that I would want to pursue an MBA from a top B-school primarily to improve my overall personality and also to gain an in-depth understanding of the world of business, specifically Finance.

Listed below are my key takeaways from SPJIMR. I would definitely recommend you to consider this course if any of the points resonate with what you are expecting out of a PGDM course:

The curriculum is on par with the Industry requirements with courses on Key Legal Aspects of Taxation with special emphasis on the soon to be rolled out GST, Private Equity, Mergers and Acquisition, Investment Banking, Managing Banking and Financial Institutions etc. These courses enabled me to understand the intricacies of finance and also to gain a holistic understanding of how the world of Finance works and the multitude of career options available.

The academic committee ensures that the faculty teaching these subjects are industry stalwarts and therefore there is special emphasis on visiting faculty from the industry for most of the subjects. Some of the eminent faculty include Pratap Giri who has authored the book for Investment Banking used in most of the top B-schools, Suresh Sankaran, Dr. S.K. Chaudhury, Vasant Sivaraman and many more.

The topics of discussion in most of these classes are from the current happenings and also subsequent reference to them in literature. This approach ensures that you are up to date with the news and are also able to relate and comprehend the significance of Finance in today's world.

The other key reason I am more than satisfied with the college is the Placements. The complete information regarding the Placements at SPJIMR can be found in the website. But there are a few names which I would proudly mention as recruiters from SPJIMR, like Goldman Sachs, Avista Advisory, Citi Bank , HSBC, Franklin Templeton, Standard Chartered and also the impressive line-up of Consulting companies like BCG, Deloitte, KPMG, PRTM, TSMG and many more. Enabling the students to choose their career options through the various opportunities provided on the campus along with detailed information sessions with alumni is something that SPJIMR takes pride in.

The whole concept of Autumns internship is yet another advantage. The primary advantage being that, we have already gone through our area of specialization, as part of our Third semester, and this ensures that we are fully equipped for the requirements of the industry, resulting in a higher PPO conversion. Moreover, we do have a Summer Internship with an NGO which sensitizes us and provides us with the platform to contribute to the society. This program also ensures that the future managers are always aware of the ground reality and take decisions which are not just friendly to the balance sheets, but also to the society as a whole.

These are the key takeaways which has helped me achieve my potential and also fulfill my requirements from an MBA program. If you feel that these are things that you would look forward in any MBA program, then SPJIMR is the right place to be.

@Kokaine: I would have loved to answer your question with a perfect figure such as XX LPA but i'm going to disappoint you, not because I don't want to reveal but because I'm also looking for answers to the same. There is a possibility I might join SPJ this June, have been selected for finance. I can only say that, from the minimum little prodding and inquiry i've done that it should be somewhere around 15 (+/- a few), but i would reiterate that don't go by the average figures, they are highly misleading. Look for more qualitative parameters of placement rather than quantitative. With Quality, Quantity will automatically follow. Hope that helped. If you need any more, feel free to PM me

@viv127 see the biggies  would mostly put you in sales, market research and sometimes even marketing. But the lesser names do give business development profiles pretty easily. Also in all of them after an MBA you always start as a management trainee where you would work in different functions for a few months before finally settling down in one role. ASM is one of the coveted profiles in FMCG and CDs which you get after spending some time in the company

Kindly discuss your queries about FMS Admissions process on this thread

Latest Posts   

For all those who are wondering whether they should appear for FMS' interview with percentile lower than 99 and/or have a non-engineering background:


Though there are no marks allotted explicitly for diversity, it is highly respected in FMS, and if you are well prepared, you may have a very good chancing of converting as it may fetch you 1 or 2 marks extra- and that can make all the difference. There are students here who convert every year with percentiles less than 99 and there is no reason one should lose hope. 

PS. We have doctors, scientists, entrepreneurs, CAs, people with background in Economics, Commerce and Statistics and so on. We encourage you to make the best use of this opportunity.
