It's the best college for this student who wants's to higher study in science. It's the best infrastructure, faculty, hostel life, and many more... Your life going to be changed in this college because I went to this college my life has totally changed. Here, I enjoyed a lot.

It's Like studying in Heaven with world class infrastructure

Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | Master of Management
This institute fosters knowledge and practical learning by it's world class infrastructure, faculties and conducive environment. Industries give immense respect to this institute for it's mind blowing curriculum structure which includes both practical and scienctific part of education. Particularly Management students get lot of exposure to real world problem solving by doing 3 month internship and 6 month internship as a part of curriculum in corporate. So I would say Department of Management Studies in IISc is a unique course in India which allow students to spend 9 months out of 24 months(Course duration) in real world problem solving projects. Placement opportunities: Another unique thing about Management Department in IISc is that it very likely you will end up with more than 1 job offer because you will get total 3 opportunities for placement- 1. You can get PPO right after your 3 month internship. 2. You can be placed in companies coming for final placements in the begining of 3rd sem. 3. You can get PPO after your 6 month internship in final sem.

which institute is best between IISC and IISER Pune for higher study of science as well as for adventures and cool college life.

Abhishek Roy 16th Jan, 2021

Incase you secure certain rank in JEE Main/Advanced or KVPY for Undergraduate or GATE/JAM incase you are applying for Postgraduation, which grants you admission to either of IISc Bangalore or Top IISERs like Pune, Mohali, Kolkata. It is a no brainer to choose IISc Bangalore over any IISER. IISc Bangalore besides having a very strong recurring in terms of faculty, infrastructure, research facilities, employer outlook also has a very rich campus life and peer environment. Bangalore itself is a very vibrant city and is apt for a healthy college life. However, In case you do not make it to IISc Bangalore you may surely choose IISER Pune as your Go-To Institute.
