i have some querry about JB..
whats teh total cost of studying at JB. ??tution fees??
do they have hostel facility?
and which specialisation in JB is famous?
Here are the Answers to your Queries
1) Cost ?
The Tuition fees for 2004-05 (thats my first year) was Rs.34300/-
and we don't have any news that it will be changed drastically next time
So You can expect any figure between Rs.30000/- and Rs.40000/-. per year if u join the next batch.
Apart from the tuition fees you have to make contributions to the various Committees which comes around at max Rs.4000/- (and its only in the first year)
That leaves you with only the studying material which can cost you around Rs.2000/- for each semester (including Photocopies and a few reference books like Kotler or Brailey Myers)
To sum it up i have just concluded my first year (Hopefully... :P ) two days back and i havent spent more than Rs.40000/-.
2) Hostel facility?
There are two Hostels
1) J S Hall - Costs Rs.6000/- per year
2) I S Hall - Costs Rs.20000/- per year (both excluding meals)
both are bang opposite the Churchgate station (that is if u know Mumbai's geography..)
All Outside Maharashtra Students get Hostel facility in JS Hall
whereas the Outside Mumbai Students are first tried to be accomodated in JS Hall and then in IS Hall
Mumbai students don't get the hostel facility immediately however by the end of first year everyone one who wants the Hostel facility gets one.
The infrastructure of JS Hall is not great and in the first year u get triple sharing rooms (the rooms are big enough ) , however in the 2nd year u get either a single room or a double sharing.
IS Hall is comparatively better in terms of infra and also u get single rooms.
The best about both the hostels is their location u get to stay in this part of South Bombay for Rs.500 a month and u can have a walk after dinner on Marine Drive
What else can u ask for
Well the break up of students in various streams normally is as follows
Finance - 45%
Systems, HR, Operations put together - 10%
So u can guess which specialisations are famous
The Reason for these specialisations being more favoured is the faculty
U will have Marketing thought by
Executive Director of Dabur,and by
Mr. Jagdeep Kapoor the God of small brands
while for fin u have people like
Senior VP of Sterlite
Head of Foreign Exchange of Development Bank of Singapore
and many others (these r the one's i remember off the cuff)
However the general perception about BAJAJ is that its best for Finance, but i think even Mark is equally good
I think this would have answered most of ur queries, but if u have any more please feel free to get back
