In the last decade, we have moved into an era, merely possessing a degree doesn’t guarantee a job and this is even true for those who are opting for professional programmes such as engineering and MBA. Today, a professional’s employability is highly dependent upon the industry perception about the college / university they are walking out of. Therefore, industry perception has emerged as the second most important aspect that students must assess while choosing their college, after the quality of education.
To an extent, the quality of education provided at an institute / university can also be assessed on the basis of what perception industry has about the students walking out of their college. Simply put, the quality of education provided by an institution can gauged from what the people who hire its graduates have to say about them. These are the people who have one-on-one interaction with the recent pass outs and know everything about the quality of their work. This feedback is important for varsities committed to providing good education which can be used by the students in their respective professions.
When it comes to industry perception, the Mathura based GLA University has often been touted as the ideal example among private universities, when it comes to placements.
The University has companies like placement partners like Accenture, Amazon, LAVA, HCL, JK Tyres, Royal Bank of Scotland, HDFC Bank, TATA, Samsung etc visiting the campus every year to hire students across courses and fields. Over 500 companies have visited the campus and recruited over 10,000 students till now. The placement average over last 6 years stands at a whopping 74 per cent, which is a testimony enough to reflect the quality of education imparted here. This year itself, over 2000+ B.Tech students have already been placed so far.
