    My experience of having been a student/ studied in LIBA is nothing short of wonderful. I would love to go there and live the life all over again - if I could. At LIBA, there's a good mix of students from all over the country, and there's plenty of opportunities to learn and enjoy learning at the same time. To start off, there's plenty of clubs such as Placements committee, 360 Degrees - The Student Affairs committee, LIBA Alumni committee, Finesse (Finance club), MarkIt (Marketing club), Le Vox Populi (HR club), E-cell (Entrepreneurship club) etc. There's plenty of exposure to activities outside the ring of academics such as guest lectures from dignified members of the society every week, social outreach program, outbound learning program, marathon case study and much more. LIBA is nothing short of an experience of a lifetime. Students generally have a great time during their stay - balancing academics and learning to have fun while at it. We have celebrated almost every festival that is known and famous (including Halloween). The college management has always encouraged us to participate/ prove our mettle in events hosted by other colleges and boy, we've won in many competitions and made heads turn. LIBA has a decent infrastructure (which is improving year on year) and the prescribed courses are taught by the best faculty. We have plenty of visiting faculty (Even international) who teach specific courses.
