- PGDM Banking & Finance – Rs. 3 lakhs
- Masters in Management Studies (MMS) –Rs. 4.5 lakhs
The placements have been 100% in the past few years with an average salary of 4 to 4.5 lakhs per annum. Placements under marketing are the best.

A minimum of Rs. 3.5 lakh is promised.
The faculty at Pillai’s Institute Of Management Studies And Research is average and definitely not on the better side. The experienced professors are good but the new ones are not impressive. Again the marketing students win over the others. Visiting faculty are good but their frequency of visits is very low.
Seminars and Industry Interaction:
Seminars are something that the students can’t complain about; they are quite frequent and interesting as well. Industry interaction is good for International Business students. They have industrial visits arranged to foreign countries like China.
Crowd & Campus Life:
There is a Linguistic Minority-Malayalam at Pillai’s Institute Of Management Studies And Research, as is the case with other institutes at the Pillai campus. The crowd is a good mixture of students from various backgrounds. Attendance here is very strict, students are expected to maintain 75% compulsory, failing which they are start losing out on internal assessment marks and in extreme cases even “failed”.
'Nirmiti' is a big inter-collegiate festival held in the month of October.

A decent place to be in, life here is fun but placements can be a bit of issue due to low packages. If get into marketing specialization it’s wonderful, otherwise you may have to face the music.
