Ditto NIIT during the IT boom, now NIIT are nowhere what they used to be. Expect the Bentley to be swapped for a BMW unless his movie ventures do better!

I don't want to bash up the image of my college here publicly but can tell you its one of the best engineering colleges in the Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University. (aka IP University)

At least NIIT didn't claim to give real degrees, although they tried to confuse people with their GNIIT.

I would be discreet here because I fear that IIPM may sue me.
They have been through a lot of criticism as seen here:

.:: JAM CAREERS > IIPM: Tall Claims ::.
Vantage point: The fraud that is IIPM

My advice would be to do some research before joining an institute.

P.S. With a little bit of hard work one can secure 80%ile+ in CAT/XAT et al, which can enable people to join a good B-School in the country. In case one is unable to get that minimum percentile, it is not a necessity to do an MBA. One can always go for a Masters.
Besides, there are always options abroad.

Dude, 2 words, "Hard Work"

I've worked my way up without an MBA, its hard work if you need something you want.

Well even more hard work (its not physical labour) but negotiating and getting to terms with your own limitations. Which is the most practical thing one can ever do.

If you are great with concepts both mathematical, AR & Quant as well as the english language logic, go for IIM/ISB aim high, atleast you will be happy at the end of the day.

If you do make it through IIM/ISB, and pass out, you will realise that you are at the top of the heap, remember, its difficult maintaining a high status which won't be so difficult 5-10 years into your career, its being at the top and maintaining that lead which is difficult. Going up is easy.

At the end of the day best of luck from the bottom of my heart.

It's exactly this mentality which keeps these shady schools going.

plus IIPM MBA grads do get placed, whether in Chaudhury's company or elsewhere.
As far as i know, IIPM doesn't offer MBA

Read this-
Indian Institute of Planning and Management advertising and blogging controversy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The full page ads of IIPM and the things said by the 'guru' always read like fishy stuff and now am convinced. Not affiliated to UGC, not approved by AICTE means a very bad sign. Stay clear.
