Total fees for 2 years is around 20 lakhs. The absolute number is big but it's every penny of investment. The brand associated with IIMA is worth 100 times the fees. You can easily avail loan from banks from inside the campus or any other branch also.
Quite good. In first year all the functional areas are touched upon with slightly more focus on marketing courses. Many courses were very helpful like Ethics, Strategic management, Business Research etc. Some courses are quite difficult like Decision Analysis and some are easy like Operations management.
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.
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.
It was 12 lacs for the 2 years during my time. It is a reasonable figure to sustain the infrastructure and faculty. Moreover, within 2 years of graduating, we are able to pay off the loan. Nobody is denied admission due to lack of funds.
Case-based curriculum inspired by Harvard Business School. This can be a strength as it models real life situations very well and borrows from multi-dimensional subject learning. We are expected to read the theory ourselves prior to class. We will not be spoon-fed.
The fee structure is feasible Rs 15 lakhs for the two years. This covers the academic courses and the hostel. However the canteen and mess costs are not covered in this fee structure. All academic material required is provided by the institute case mats, textbooks.
The course curriculum is probably one of the hardest in the world and that's not an exaggeration. The first year is a common course for everyone with courses in all disciplines finance, marketing, operations, HR, systems, economics. You are allowed to freely choose your electives during the second year from any of these disciplines. In addition there are specialized courses designed for entrepreneurs,leadership,social responsibility and many more.
It is expense in comparison of other MBA programs in INdia. at 25 Lakhs it is infact most expensive. However, as it is compared with other international institutes, it is one of the most cost-effctive destinations.
