NBS’s Best Educational Practices make students competent for ever-changing industrial requirements. NBS assists students and recruiters at every step of the placement process.

What does the Placement Calendar at Narayana Business School look like?

At the end of the first year, Narayana Business School conducts campus engagements and summer internship interviews where most students get on average 4 offers each for internship (more on this later).

The students then complete their internship period between April to July. Most internships last for 90 days.

After the internship period, students are back to the campus and the pre-placement activities begin. In Addition to the rigorous curriculum, our students also go through NBS trademark NEEP program. NEEP, or Narayana Employment Enhancement program, works on building and developing in-demand industry skills in our students.

With this, NBS students become ready to excel in the corporate world.

I am impressed. Narayana Business School does offer great placement opportunities. But, what about the return on investment?

Good Question.

Let us look at the reasons why Narayana Business School is the only private B-School that offers greater than 100% return on investment.

But, before we dive into the numbers, let us first understand what return on investment is, and how you should ideally measure the ROI (return on investment) from any business school.

Here are a few things you must keep in mind while calculating what you put in during the 2 years and what you got out of the 2 years.

  • What are the costs involved?
    • Tuition Fees – The most obviously visible and most talked-about cost of an MBA or PGDM (Postgraduate Diploma in Management) Degree is the tuition fees. This is the direct cost of education that you are paying and this facilitates the kind of faculties and infrastructure that you get in return from the B-School.
    • Hostel & Food expenses – Apart from the tuition fee, hostel & food expenses are the 2 other prime expenses that you incur during your life at a B-School.
    • Interest on Education Loan- One of the main HIDDEN costs that most students do not take into consideration is the interest on education loans. Surprisingly, most students do not understand how it is amongst the largest costs that students incur for an MBA degree. Let us look at an example to understand this.
      Suppose X took an education loan of 10 lakhs, for a tenure of 7 years at 10% rate of interest. X ends up paying an additional 4 lakh rupees in interest. With moratorium, this shoots up to 6-7 lakhs.
    • Debt to Salary Ratio- Many students overlook this hidden cost and join institutes with fees over 12-15 lakhs for a marginally higher average placement figure. They end up paying a lot more in interest and end up with less cash in hand to spend or invest. They spend a large part of their productive life servicing this debt.
  • What are the returns you should consider?
    • Good Placements- Everything being equal, the B-School that offers a better placement opportunity to the student gives a better ROI.
    • Long Term Salary Projections- While you may start at a higher salary in an industry like automobile, can you compare the annual growth it offers with growth at a unicorn start-up?
      It is, therefore, essential to look at the long-term salary projections that you can expect after MBA/PGDM to get the true idea of ROI.
    • Alumni Network- Any B-School worth its weight in salt would boast of a strong alumni network. But what use is a large alumni base that you cannot rely upon in times of need? Always look at how engaged the alumni are with their alma mater.
      For example, Narayana Business School keeps sending job opportunities to its 8500+ strong alumni base long after they have graduated.
    • Networking opportunities- One of the most important things that a skilled professional takes away from their MBA is a strong network of peers. They should be the immediate network of supporters in case you need to switch profile, company, or industry any time in the future.

Now that we have understood what we should be looking at in terms of ROI from a B-School, let us look at what Narayana Business School offers.

MeasureValue
Fees6,50,000
Average Salary7,50,000
Alumni Network8500+
Peer Group (Network)500+
Average Job OffersApprox. 3.5 per student
Return on Investment>115%
