The Best Decision I Made for My Career
By Vinay
Apr 20, 2021 3:07:56

Overall: I was not sure when starting my preparation for CAT that I would even be able to get a good college or whether it would be good for me. However, I decided to continue with my studies and set IIM Bangalore as my target because of its great placements and beautiful campus. However, I successfully managed to crack the CAT and got admission to this amazing institute and it has been one of the best decisions of my career. The well-learned faculty members of IIMB are experts in their domain and they have helped me improve in every aspect of my life. The overall infrastructure of the institute is modern and contains every basic amenity that a student might require. Even my classmates and friends at IIMB have always motivated me to do better. More than 100 companies visited the college campus for placements and everybody in my batch got at least 1 offer. Even though the investment seemed high at the beginning, I got offered a good package in the campus placements itself and everything was worth the efforts!
