I dont know how you got a negative impression about IIT M.

If you carefully read the post again, I have asked some one who has taken Finance(& other specialization ) as the specialization, to bring out the positives of the course.

I didnt take up Finance as it didnt suit me.
How can it imply that the college is not upto the mark or the college is bad. In fact, we have always had the best placement in finance(among all the specialisation) over years and it has the maximum no of subjects offered in a specialisation.

PS: Please avoid writing the post in SMS lingos. Thanks.

As I am a student now in the 2nd yr of the course, though not someone who's gonna specialize totally in Finance, I think I would like to answer this question.

Finance offered in DoMS IITM is taught by very learned and decorated faculty. Two of our finance professors have been awarded the Best Teacher awards from AIMS India.

The electives offered in finance cover the length and breadth of the entire subject. In fact it is one of those courses which you can consume totally i.e. there are so many electives possible for you to take that you can specialize in Finance totally, though people here do also take up other electives. Refer this page, DoMS IIT Madras.

We have had great external interaction with the outside Finance honchos. Just 2-3 days ago we had in our Financial Institutions and Markets class, a current EXIM Bank biggie come and teach us the course, who has also worked with the World Bank for a huge no of years and has played various roles in that sector. In addition, for the same course, we will be having StanChart executives fly down from Singapore for taking up some sections.

And finally, the placements. We have had great placements in the Fin area with companies such as Lehman Bros, Fidelity, Barclays Bank (London), Bank of America, Irevna, and Aranca recruit from here. In the past we have also had overseas firms such as Bloomberg have come for placements.

So all in all, just like other disciplines, finance is a live and kicking domain being taught at our campus.

Thanks Quagmire and rmbt for this initiative!

What's the flagship course of DOMS, IITM ? Or how is the stream split up in the current batch?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
DoMS IIT Madras offers MBA, MS and Phd programs. For MBA, there is only one common program. So, that automatically becomes the flagship program.

Your specialization is decided by the number of electives you choose from various streams in the second year. For instance, if you choose most of your electives(say 70%) from finance, that will become your specialization. It could even be a combination(say 40% finance and 40% systems and IT).

Quagmire may let you know more about the stream split in our senior batch.

Double post...

To carry forward what Karan says, the final degree you will get from IIT Madras would only pronounce you an MBA, without mentioning any specialization. So there is no flagship specialization per se, if that is what you are asking.

As for the specializations in our batch, the most popular specialization currently in the 2nd yr batch is Finance, with Operations coming a close second. Marketing would come in next, followed by Systems and HR.

Hope this answers your queries.

Thanks a lot! 😃

You are very much eligible to apply for IIT Madras. However if called for GT/PI, in my personal opinion, you will have to convince the faculty about the rigour that a distance learning course puts you through, as compared to a full time MCA course.

For IIT Madras, as it is written a minimum of first class is required, which translates into at least 60%, irrespective of the category. So I guess you may not be eligible for an applying to IIT Madras.

As for IIT Roorkee, the same will hold true. However, you may confirm that on the DoMS IIT Roorkee thread at http://www.pagalguy.com/discussions/2009domsiit-roorkee-admission-queries-25033895.

You can expect a call if you have a rank sub 1000 or may be around 1100, though people with exceptional academic performance and/or work experience could be called beyond those ranks. Actually over the years the ranks that get into are only going higher.

Yes, 65% does stand a chance. Once you have qualified its your performance, even if average, that you need to justify in the GT/PI.

For marketing, we have had IT, banking and manufacturing firms offer various profiles. In FMCG, Henkel is a regular recruiter while Dabur came in for the first time for summers.
