I am writing this in-order to give directions to the upcoming students who are interested in making their career at Department of Business and Industrial Management, DBIM, VNSGU, Surat. know also known as G H Bhakta Managment Academy.
I have completed my MBA with Specialization in Marketing from DBIM in year 2010.
The admission process is followed under Gujarat Technical University GCET (Gujarat common entrance test).
As such college is good and you can make a bright career here, and students previously has done well..
Well said, DBIM is one of the very first college of Gujarat after IIM- A. Its old legacy has favored the college till today, it has got a good alumni but not well maintained and coordinated which is surely a barrier.
Let me be frank of raising these points.
When not to join DBIM?
If you are interested in making your career in Production, operation, HR or other courses except Marketing and finance then DBIM is definitely not your destination.
The department promises and have also placed in its GCET booklet about providing 8 courses like marketing, finance, HR, operations, IT, Production and so on.
But these are only promises the ground reality is it offers only Marketing and finance. Many students come under myth of this and join dbim and ruin their career by either opting marketing or finance.
My sincere request is not to join dbim if you are interested in any field other than marketing and finance.
When you may join DBIM?
The department offers two courses Marketing and Finance.
The teaching staff is good, and experienced in marketing department, finance faculties are comparatively less experienced.
Course of subject and scope is good and is what practiced in all college’s of south gujarat university. But lags according to the industrial needs.
If you are interested in making career in marketing and finance you may join.
Regarding placements they are not that bad.
But all marketing students get job profile of sales only, no one gets in to advertising, publicity and other marketing trades because of lack of these players near by and may be some other reasons.
For Finance people they also get the sales job, just one or two get the real finance job, all else sell financial products like securities and all. yes few get bank jobs too but job profile is usually opening credit, debit account and other sales job of a bank.
From barriers also exists from students side, many students do not take interest in organising events and other MBA stuffs so department fails in these activites. Students who join are not that much interactive and many lags the right skills required, mostly local students join and so there is not much cultural exchange as it could be in a college where people from different state and nation joins.
So many negatives, let me talk positive.
1. The culture and environment is good.
2. Staff as such is good.
3. From this year the department is shifting to new building so infrastructure is also good.
4. The city is good and progressive.
5. People here are good.
6. You can get easy accommodation facilities.
7. Cost of living in city is also not that high.
8. The university area is one of the fastest growing area of Surat city.
9. IT IS THE BEST MBA COLLEGE IN SOUTH GUJARAT.
