IIMA, Ahmedabad

  • ENTRANCE PREVIEW

    CAT (99.71). I had calls from all IIMs - chose IIMA because of the brand and also because Ahmedabad is my hometown. Once the CAT results were announced, IIMA came with its shortlist of candidates for interview. I was interviewed by 2 current professors. It was a 40 minute interview, with one professor playing the good cop and another one playing bad cop role.
  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    Mine was 16 lakhs for 2 years (8 lakhs p.a.). This covered the tuition, books and hostel expenses. Food was around 8k per month. Students can easily get loans to meet their educational expenses. Fees had to paid thrice every year over the course of 2 years. There were decent scholarships available for selected category of students.

    PLACEMENT WING

    I would rate the placement and job opportunities as one of the best in the country. All the top companies across all the domains come to campus for placements. 100% of the students got placed. Example of companies and packages are as follows: Consult - McK, BCG, Bain (around 30 lakhs p.a. including bonus), Banks - Citi, CS, HSBC, BAML (around 50-70 lakhs p.a. including bonus).

  • REMARKS

    Alumni network is helpful and brand IIMA itself counts for a lot. You will find a few alumni at the top position in almost every firm. Also institute is trying very hard to bring back alums to campus for fund-raising and expanding the alum network.

  • 7 /10Ratings

    FACULTY

    I would say only 20% of the overall faculty is up to the international standards. Faculty in finance, economics and operations is pretty good, whereas marketing and HR faculty is not up to the mark. However, of late, there has been an increased focus on research by faculty and faculty promotions and tenure are now going to be decided by the quality of research output.

    CAMPUS LIFE

    Campus life was pretty vibrant with multiple activities happening all throughout. Students could be found in library, hostel, cafeteria or sports complex. Every one had complete freedom to do whatever they wanted. Gender ratio was pretty decent with 80 girls in a batch of 400. Diversity in terms of background was not good, with majority of students being engineers.

  • 9 /10Ratings

    COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

    The course curriculum was good and it was a complete case pedagogy. Most of the cases were picked from Harvard Business School. Some of the cases were written by current professors to bring in more of an Indian colour. Also, the new Director is trying to get more of industry professionals to take up certain courses to keep the curriculum relevant.

  • 9 /10Ratings

    INTERNSHIPS OPPORTUNITIES

    All top companies come for internship across consulting, banking, marketing, technology and general administration domains. The stipend was also top notch (ranging for 50k to 5 lakhs per month).

  • LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS

    I was awarded couple of scholarship based on my academic performance. I was offered Sir Ratan Tata Scholarship (1 lakh), which is given to top 5 students after first year. Then I was awarded P C Rath scholarship (1 lakhs), which is given to the institute rank 1 for the second year.

NID has its own entrance exams, known as NID entrance only. NID is known as a best design college in India and comes under best 25 Design schools of World, every design enthusiast has a dream to be part of this institute, so do I. Another reason was the course which I have taken, Strategic Design Management, NID is the only institute in India which is running this course successfully.


Placement -

Placements are 100 percent. NID does its best to provide opportunities to students, but many of them choose not to go for job and prefer to start their own company for which NID has an Incubator cell. Companies for Internship, graduation project and placement are almost same, based on their requirement they circulate the opportunities.
