Hi, how good is a B.Tech + MBA integrated course from NMIMS, is it worth and does the industry accept such degrees?

Ans: Industry does accept such degrees. The problem here is that the Btech + MBA course is conducted by the Technical institute. It will be worth it only if the placements that are offered are common with 2 year MBA students from NMIMS. Else the placements may not be good.

I want yo know if the Btech integrated 6 year course after 10th std offered by Nmims has equal value to the Btech course done after the 12th? Would you recommend it? What is the value of such courses abroad or jobs in India? MIT pune also offers a similar course
Ans: The value of an integrated B.Tech. program after the 10th standard versus a traditional B.Tech. program after the 12th standard depends on various factors. Generally, both paths lead to a B.Tech. degree, and the value often lies in the institution's reputation and the specific program.

NMIMS and MIT Pune are reputable institutions, and their integrated programs are designed to provide a comprehensive education. However, it's essential to consider the following:

1. Curriculum and Accreditation: Assess the curriculum and accreditation of the integrated program to ensure it aligns with industry standards.
2. Internships and Industry Exposure: Evaluate the opportunities for internships and industry exposure, as practical experience is crucial in the job market.
3. Career Opportunities: Research the placement records and career opportunities for graduates of both programs.
4. Flexibility: Consider the flexibility of the integrated program in terms of adapting to changing career goals or pursuing higher education.

In India, integrated programs are gaining acceptance, and reputable institutions like NMIMS and MIT Pune are recognized. And abroad, some universities may have specific entry requirements, so it's advisable to check with the institutions directly.

Ultimately, the decision depends on your preferences, career goals, and the specific offerings of each program. If the integrated course at NMIMS or MIT Pune aligns with your aspirations and provides adequate industry exposure, it can be a valuable choice. Consider contacting alums, attending information sessions, and gathering as much information as possible before deciding.
