Well if you ask us, we would always say, the college does matter. It is most advantageous to study at the top colleges and universities if you have a very specific career path. If you are planning to do MBBS or engineering, a college that has a top-rated program would undoubtedly benefit your postgraduate study options. It is primarily because the rank of the college is your achievement for any competitive exam that you will get admission. The college does go to your resume and recruiters are interested in finding an employee from a reputed college. “Good” is for sure a relative term. Everyone can have a different definition of good, but for us, we would define it on the parameters of industry exposure, necessary learning, placement opportunities, institutional credibility, and corporate tie-ups. The infrastructure and exposure that a college provides are of prime importance and along with which the merit and the quality of the students of the institution should also be taken into consideration.
Certain factors set prestigious professional institutions apart from the regular ones. The High Profile professors are one primary factor among them. Here, the “high profile” strictly points to their educational and career excellence and exposure. Professors of this quality are generally found in greater numbers at elite universities than at other places.
One of the other factors that go into making a university prestigious is its alumni network. Once you have access to this very large network by being part of that specific university undoubtedly that helps out a lifelong and in crucial moments such as job hunt, corporate tie-ups, exposure to wider circles, opportunities to learn, and explore better career options so on and so forth.
Along with its delivery of education, the scope for networking and exploration that the university provides does matter a lot. Prestigious professional colleges have excellent networking with top-notch firms and industries. Upon graduation from such a university, you will more likely to end up with a job in a highly sought-after firm in the industry, especially if you have done internships and summer placements in these firms, which you will most likely have if you go to a prestigious university in the first place. The campus recruitments held at top engineering institutions such as IITs and NITs pick the candidates to the top-most national and international companies. When it comes to the medical field, the practical knowledge and exposure provided by AIIMS or Government medical colleges are unparalleled.
