It's all about the people. XLRI HRM(2019-21)




Is IIT Kharagpur really good, considering all bases (syllabus, faculty, placements, alumni base) to be listed in these top HR schools? I know since it is included here then it must be, but would you like throw some light on its excellency? It’s a genuine query.

Hi Abhijeet! I know it’s a quite lesser known institute as compared to the others on the list but it does have a legacy of its own. My advice would be to speak to current students and alumni at MHRM to get a better idea about the institute.
