If you are a category student You dont need these mentorship. Self-study will be more than enough for you.

My analysis of this group suggests that there are a total of 20 students (fictional or real idk, im treating it as a DI puzzle). 5 of them probably have some sort of category attached as they have AB calls. 6 WL/reject from K means for aure less than 99% so no way they are general candidate. So now a total of 11 category students. Baaki ke 9 mein se shayad ek do general honge who converted K. So basically aap caste certificate ka na jayaax faida utha rahe ho apne company ko popular banane mein.

Hi everyone !!


I am a current student at NITIE Mumbai. I am writing this post to help you make an informed decision. Here are some pros and cons of joining NITIE !!


Pros: 

1. Awesome placements in operations and supply chain field.

2. A very strong alumni network in the supply chain and operations field. This helps to easily switch to other companies in respective domains.

3. A very relaxed college life. (you would feel even more relaxed than your BTech institute, although I don't know if you would want to consider it as one of the pros since you are investing lacs of rupees and would want some value addition over your stay of 2 years, altough it also gives you freedom to participate in other value adding activites). 


Cons:

1. Almost next to nil roles of finance, marketing, strategy consulting. Don't be fooled by the placement report. Domain and roles are very different things (people get operations roles in banks which are mentioned as roles in finance domain in placement report). Even consulting roles are operations and supply chain focused, so don't expect to get any advantage through NITIE for getting into strategy or management consulting roles. IT management roles are also operations and supply chain oriented, don't think you would get IT product management roles easily from here. 

2. Improper hostel facilities. Its been almost one year and 1st year students haven't even received proper wifi in their hostel rooms. Lifts break down every now and then (Imagine a hostel with 16 floors, about 1000 people and only 4 lifts out of which 1 or 2 are not functional some time). 

3.  Many of the professors are pathetic. Its a common fact known to every student in NITIE that exam copies are not checked by most of the professors and sometimes totally random grades are alloted to students. Some much of cheating is prevalent during examinations that you would feel at loss if you didn't hone your cheating skills dring your btech days or childhood. 

4. There is also an PGDIE batch which get into NITE through GATE. Although, I don't have anything against them, the total batch to be placed gets pretty huge. Altough many a times you would see them mentioning MBA in their linkedin profiles (which is totally a wrong practice since their's is a Mtech equivalent course). 

5. There is a lot of regionalism in the institute. There are different closed groups of marathi, bengali, gujarati, north indian, south indian people. During placements and other events, favourism is prevelant due to these groups. I was also added in one such group by senior batch people and this all is passed on year on year.

6. The atmosphere of institute (even students) if of low ethics (there is prevalent corruption in student funds by different committees). 


Some added gyaan:

1. Please try to contact a trusted source (eg, a friend already studying in the institute) to get information about any bschool. Admission committee members are taught to lie.  

2. Some of these issues are present in many different top bschools. 

3. Average packages in placement reports of all bschools include very high one time payments, effective in hand salary is about Rs 90000-120000 after passing out from NITIE. This figure will also be true for many other top bschools- IIM I, IIMK, MDI etc). 

4. Don't think NITIE is equivalent to ABC in supply chain. Its just that most people from ABC don't want to get into supply chain roles.  


PS: People from NITE might come to the bchool's defence but believe me they don't want to get the institute's image degraded since it might affect placement. This is the sole reason why most of these issues are not revealed.

Over this weekend, I got a chance to interact with a few of you for practice PIs.  I was amazed by the profiles, but the stories could've been more compelling. I know you all have been practising relentlessly to make it through via multiple options for prep out there. 

But do get enough guidance for creating a unique personalised story before you start mock PIs.
