it is not at all worth spending 11lakhs for such an institute as they provide only sector specific PGDM. Also they don't have good professors as most of them are on contingency from LIC and they keep on changing them. you have better options like kirloskar, Weschool or MS Ramaiah for better future growth and  ROI.  PSU's had stop coming for recruitment as there will be no boom in insurance sector for coming years. placement's major part is from incentives not basic salary its more kind of marketing only in insurance sector.

I have decided to join We Mumbai and not NIA. 

I asked one of the top faculty members of TIME about NIA and he told me that it is not at all worth spending 11.5 lakhs for such an institute as they provide only sector specific PGDM. Overall they told me to go for general management courses. Also they don't have good professors as most of them are on contingency from LIC and they keep on changing them. I have 95%ile cmat and 2yrs of exp so they told me above 90%ile and you already have better options like Weschool and SIESCOM for better future growth and  ROI. They even told me that PSU's had stop coming for recruitment as there will be no boom in insurance sector for coming years. When i told them about avg placements they said major part is from incentives not basic salary its more kind of marketing only in insurance sector. 

He also said to me that, one way of finding how good an institute is by checking the demand it has. And i felt it does make sense. In Weschool, there were like 17000 applications while in NIA it was only 300. And also from that 300 only around 210 came for the GDPI. And out of this 210, they have selected more than 110 and kept almost 10 in waitlist. So more than half of the students who took part in GDPI were selected in NIA, which i don't find as a good selection process. While in Weschool it's like 1:34.

best of luck guys.

before doing mba the first thing to look is long term impact it has. a general mba enables someone to be a free soul with lot of flexibility in career. mba is actually done by someone to be flexible in career and that flexibility u won't get in nia.

also what u have pointed about special isation is also completely wrong, mba in finance, marketing, hr etc. makes one open for such roles in all sector. a finance person can work in the financial profile in any sector. but that is not the case with insurance, if u do your mba in insurance ur whole career gets confined to insurance sector alone. and i don't want to be like that.

also does doing mba from nia limits career opportunities only in insurance field ???

if that is the case then spending more than 11 lakhs for nia will be a bad investment na ???

To say u will be getting a pure sales job after doing PGDM from NIA would be a wrong thing to say. The post provided for the most of the jobs is that of a management trainee and then as an Assistant manager. So u will be having a good post, but the thing is even if u are a assistant manger or a manager or anyone in Insurance field all will be given target to sell (x) no. of policies depending upon ur job position. All posts of insurance including the higher level posts are entitled to get targets in selling insurance policies. Higher the job position higher will be ur targets of policy selling. So bcoz of this targets ur job will seem more like a sales job in which u have to canvas people and sell the insurance policies. Ur growth will be dependent on the targets u finish and hence it becomes a sales job in practice.
