What Our Students Say About Us

I have been placed in Deloitte at the first go, which was a dream come true. Kudos to the TPP (Training Placement Program) at Malwa that helped me polish my personality, become confident and understand the way to present my best foot forward. Malwa gave me enough exposure to face to world with a head high and today I feel nurtured.

“Instead of seeing my college years as the only time when I could be the artist I want to be, I dared myself to see the rest of my life as an opportunity to live the life I want to live.”


Malwa Placement cell is fruitful and supportive as it inculcates and shapes us into confident, motivated individuals who only strive for excellence. Having placed in CDB, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Malwa  for having numerous companies at the campus for placements.
