Determination, dedication and discipline — this is what they aim for at the Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, University of Delhi, located in the extreme east in Jhilmil Colony, Vivek Vihar.

“Bain and Co recruited three students with a package of Rs 9.7 lakh per annum. The average package was Rs 5 lakh per annum,” says Sonia Sareen, placement coordinator.

The A/V room is used for presentations and guest lectures. Each classroom is equipped with its own overhead projector.

The college library is fully computerised and air-conditioned with 15,000 books and subscriptions to 48 national and international journals and 12 national and business newspapers.

This college is located in Vivek Vihar, east Delhi, and is a part of DU. It was set up by the ministry of human resource development in 1987 as the first collegiate business school in India to impart business and management education at the undergraduate level. This college is considered the best Asian institute providing management education at the undergraduate level and producing the finest set of fresh graduates and interns for the industry every year.

The college deserves a better building. We have so many plans...

If you have dedicated people, infrastructure doesn't matter, but yes we do need a proper canteen where we can sit and enjoy good food
