How is the GEMS B School MBA Program and is it valid for working professionals?

Hi I am software engineer with 4 yrs IT experience. I am interested in GEMS B School MBA. Is it just for students who get 2 yrs of work exp as well as MBA certificate end of the year? Please let me know the course design and fees for working professional like me.

Look at it carefully. It appears that only two of the 10 faculty have doctorates, and one of them is in education, not business. The problem is that many new MBA programs in India simply cannot hire good faculty because they are not available, so you are taught by non-qualified teachers. This does not mean they are bad teachers, they simply don’t have the background to give you the solid training available in AACSB accredited schools.

Consult the Official MBA Guide. It’s a comprehensive free public service with more than 2,000 MBA programs listed worldwide. It allows you to search for programs by location (US, Europe, Far East, etc.), by concentration (finance, marketing, aviation management, health management, accounting, etc.), by type of program (full-time, distance learning, part-time, executive, and accelerated), and by listing your own criteria and preferences to get a list of universities that satisfy your needs. Schools report their accreditation status, tuition cost, number of students, class sizes, program length, and a lot of other data. Schools provide data on entrance requirements, program costs, program characteristics, joint degrees, and much more. You can use the Guide to contact schools of your choice, examine their data, visit their web site, and send them pre applications. You can see lists of top 40 schools ranked by starting salaries of graduates, GMAT scores, and other criteria. It’s the best service available at http://officialmbaguide.org.

    Hi this is Roshan. i visited gemsbschool 2 days back and met the people there. The college is very good, i liked the place very much. The campus is really huge and the students are also friendly. They are all working with good companies like HP, IBM, Wipro etc. I am Joing the course tomorrow

  4. Amritha says:

    Hi Ajith, I am doing my MBA with Gems B School in Bangalore. The course structure is what really excited me about this college. Here you can work and study together. As soon as you join the college, they place you in a company as a full time employee and you also get a salary. You will need to work there Monday to Friday and study in the college on Saturdays and Sundays.
    The job that you get will be dependent on the specialization you choose in your MBA. So if you wish to get into finance i don’t think it will be a problem for the college to place you. If you choose Finance as your specialization then you will be placed accordingly. The placement team is awesome, they have tie-ups with more than 150 companies.

    And Nidhi, the college campus is huge and beautifully green. The buildings too are very beautiful. all of us love it here. It is a different experience to study in such a silent and serene place.

  9. Nidhi says:

    Hello William,

    When you say that the college will get us a job within 45 days max, what kind of jobs are you talking about?? Will we have to attend interviews? Will the college help me in choosing my specialisations, cause i am very confused as to what specialisation to choose in the first place?

  10. Roshan says:

    Hi Nidhi, the job will be in the same line as your specialisation. If you choose finance, it will be related to finance and so on. Yes you will have to attend interviews but not too many rounds as otherwise. The college will help you choose your specialisations through assessments, psychometcric tests etc. So, don’t worry about it now.

  11. Nidhi says:

    Thank you Roshan. I read your previous post and i heard you have visited the college. Have you taken admission? If so, have they placed you yet??
    And how is the hostel? I want to move in to the hostel, just wanted to make sure if it’s nice and safe.

  15. ramya says:

    what are the requirements to join an mba course..i wanted to know since iam so worried about my future…i need some assistance

  16. Rahul says:

    @Vijay: Well, South Asia University is big in the Distance Education Area but the course offered by GEMS B SCHOOL is not because classes are conducted, Monday to friday practical exposure has to be given as a part of the curriculum and I have seen their certificates. It does not mention Distance education anywhere and the prgram model works like that. 5 days practical and 2 days classroom, thats why its full time. I am doing my Final year BBM and i have been checking about this course for the past 4 months and i think its a good program. I have also interacted with their present students and students who have passed out also. They are having no problems and are working with many companies on the strength of the MBA from GEMS B SCHOOL.

    @ Ramya: Don’t be worried. It is a great program and i have visited them several times and have checked everything. Its a wonderful program which helps me getting 2 years work exp along with an MBA and i can also earn a slary when i am working. Nothing like this program!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi everyone,

    I did my Diploma in IT from NTTF in Bangalore. the website says that Corporate Synergised BBA+MBA will be offered to NTTF studs, wherein we can complete the course in 3yrs. Does this course(Corporate Synergised BBA+MBA) is recognised by UGC? Is the international certificate which we get from South Asia Univ is valid in India? Please reply.

  28. Ria Mehta says:

    Hi Vijaya,
    There are two courses: 1)Corporate Integrated (BBA+MBA)which is a 3 year course for diploma holders and Non – Graduates and is a a full time dual specialisation international, BBA and MBA degree from an internationally reputed UK University.
    2)Industry Synergised (BBA+MBA)which is a 5 year course and is recognized by the UGC.
    Also if you have any further queries you can drop in a mail at contactus@gemsbschool.com

  29. Rakshitha.V.Nayak says:

    South Asia is a US university if we do MBA in GEMS School do that certificates have value in india?? does GEMS school is recognized by any indian university??

  30. Vedika says:

    Hi Ajith, I am a student of GEMS B School.. But I am not aware if you can change your domain.. I think you should be able to shift to finance.. but if you want the details regarding the fee structure you should talk to the counselor of the college .. He will be able to help you better and answer all your queries.. And if he says you are eligible then just go fir it.. It’s the best college!

  31. Vedika says:

    Hi Rakshita, depends on which programme you are interested in.. Most of the courses are full time international / UGC Recognised.. So the courses are will be recognized in India as well as abroad!

  36. neal says:

    there are plenty of facts which does not match their claim in their web site.

    1. south asia university is accredited by WCODES a distance education society, then how come they are offering full time degree.

    2. Even Google does not seem to know WCODES. The nearest it gives is world council of distance learning schools which is unrecognized http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_unrecognized_accreditation_associations_of_higher_learning.

    3. SAP education partners …… SAP does not thing so
    http://www.sap.com/asia/services/education/centres/partners.epx

    4. united nations global compact is not a education body
    http://www.unglobalcompact.org/aboutthegc/thetenprinciples/index.html

    5. PRIME actually it is PRME does not accredit south asia university or GEMS b School http://www.unprme.org/participants/index.php?sort=name&dir=asc&start=240

  37. Esha says:

    Hi, the fee structure differs for different MBA programmes. I have recently applied for Industry Synergised MBA at gems and even i had a few queries which were resolved very quickly..i sent my fee query to the institute on contactus@gemsbschool.com and i got an immediate reply from them. I also spoke to student relations manager who was very kind and assisted me. I am very happy with the response i got from them. If you guys also have any doubts you can drop in a mail on the above email id. Good luck!

  38. Nikita says:

    Hi Neal,

    All the information mentioned on the Gems B School Brochures and Website are 100 % true.

    You should check for yourself before jumping to any conclusions based on hear-say. Also you can check the authenticity of the documents by visiting the Campuses.

    You could also get in touch with our Student Relations Manager: Mr. Kunal Nehruji Mob:

    He could help you with all the right information.

  39. sabith says:

    pls help me to know me abt Gems . is mba distance?

  40. Shivangi says:

    Hi Sabith the courses at GEMS are full time mba programmes and not distance learning. Attendance is Mandatory.

  41. swetha says:

    Hi sabith,

    The MBA course offered by the GEMS B SCHOOL is not a distance education. Its a full MBA degree with dual specialisation. For more information visit the college website or visit the college once to get right information.

  42. divya says:

    hi will anyone help me in telling about the admission procedure if we don have CAT and MAT scores???and what about the placements for MBA in IT???

  43. Pratik says:

    Is south asia university recognised by ugc and the govt of india???

  44. Nishant says:

    Hi Divya, You will have to take up the GEMS Admission test at http://www.gemscms.com, they don’t need MAT or CAT scores. Yes you can certainly get placements related to IT Management. @ Pratik, South Asia University or any foreign University for that matter cannot be recognised by the UGC or Govt of India. They will be recognised in their respective country by the statutory bodies. However, the course offered by GEMS is UGC recognised because you get a Twin degree. One from South Asia University and the other from KSOU, which is a UGC recognised University.

  45. Irshad says:

    Why isn’t the information which you people commented here, not furnished by B School website??
    I mean, simply any recognized college/university would find it in ease to mention it on there portal/site.
    No recognition detail.
    No Fee structure.
    No admission procedure.
    Who is reliable here? I’m very much interested in this fine programme of learn-earn but I doubt on its authenticity.

  46. Pratik says:

    Thanx alot nishant but which university is dis KSOU???which u hv mentioned??

  47. Nishant says:

    Hi Pratik, KSOU is Karnataka State Open University which is UGC recognized.
    @ Irshad, if you check the programs section on the GEMS B School website you see the authenticity of each course. If you are still doubtful you can check the authenticity of the documents by visiting the Campuses yourself before jumping to any conclusions based on hear-say. The admission procedure is Entrance Exam ( To be taken in > Bangalore or can be taken online as well )==> Submission of Documents> ( 6 sets photocopies of 10th, +2 and Graduation ) ==> Payment of fees. For the fee structure you can send your query along with the course you are interested in on contatcus@gemsbschoool.com and a representative from the college will get in touch with you.

  48. Nishant says:

  49. William Kasbe says:

    Send your Queries about GEMS to williamkasbe@yahoo.com……@ Irshad you do not need to worry about the authenticity of the college.. the college is headed by or id rather say its patronized by His Highness Sri Srikanta Datta Narasimharaja Wadiyar and GEMS has also been listed in the TOP B SCHOOLS name as per 2011 B Schools survey.

  50. meena says:

    Hi. I’ve decided to do mba from your esteemed college. I’d like to know if i can do MBA with SAP while i choose to do Industry synergised MBA. And if i am not wrong this whole program costs 3.5lakhs which includes a full time MBA with SAP ERP certification and suits and a HP laptop. Is that correct? And the admissions are open in the month july and i can book a seat in advance. I’d also like to know what are the tests that i need to pass after which i’ll get placed in a company? And whats the syllabus? And regarding the fees, i will be taking educational load from SBI bank. Will the amount be taken every month out of salory when working while m studying or can i repay the amount after completion of my MBA?

    Waiting for your reply.

    Thankyou.
