The IIMs established in 2008 and later are considered the Young/Second Generation IIMs, while those established in and after 2015 are called new IIMs. The third generation IIMs are IIM Amritsar, IIM Sirmaur, IIM Jammu, IIM Nagpur, IIM Bodh Gaya, IIM Visakhapatnam, IIM Sambalpur.
The good thing about 2nd generation IIMs is that despite being new, and the higher batch strength, they offer a better average CTC as compared to IITs. It’s true that the reputed IIT has set up their management department quite well. But in the long run the 2nd generation IIMs will offer more advantages over IITs, just because of the IIM tag.
