Department of MBA - East West Institute of Technology (EWIT), Bangalore
East West Institute of Technology (EWIT) is located in the outskirts of Western Bangalore off Magadi Road. Numerous buses do ply along the Magadi Road, but its not all that easy to reach the college from every part of the city. Additionally BMTC buses drop you on the main road from where the college is another 15-20 minutes walk. Bus facility is provided by the college at about Rs. 10,000/- a year, in which you would not have to worry about much of the above.
The campus of East West Group of Institutions is sufficiently big and hosts few other sister institutes such as the engineering, pharmacy and PU colleges along with the Department of MBA. Although everything looks just fine from the outside (nice glass adorned buildings, open grounds and a park), things are a little different inside. Students are of the opinion that maintenance is lacking - not enough water purifiers, slightly unhygienic washrooms and a well built library with shortage of some essential books. Hostel facilities (fees for which are close to Rs. 45,000/- a year) are even worse and those who've experienced it, recommend its best to stay some place else.
Fees & Placements:
East West Institute of Technology charges Rs. 1.5L for the two year MBA programme if admitted through PG CET.
Placements aren’t as good as the Engineering departments and just about 20-25% of the students get placed on campus. Companies like Kotak Mahindra, IBM and few more banking firms offer miniscule salaries ranging from Rs. 2-2.5L per year.
The faculty is said to be above average. Students are satisfied with the teaching. Visiting faculty come in for 1 or 2 subjects each semester.
Seminars & Industry Interaction:
High profile individuals such as CEOs and Managers of top notch companies come here to deliver seminars and guest lectures which are organized at least twice every month. Industrial visits are also quite a practical learning experience as students are taken to places like Karnataka Milk Federation, Bangalore Stock Exchange and PVR Theatres for one day trips.
Crowd & Campus Life:
Students come from all parts of Karnataka with Bangalore contributing to at least half of them. There are few people from outside the state. Campus life isn’t very stressful as the teachers distribute the presentations and assignments in an orderly manner.

Although there’s nothing particularly bad about the college, the general belief is to try getting a better college than this. If nothing works, don’t feel too hesitant to come here.
