COLLEGE WITH THE BEST COURSE
IIM, Ahmedabad establishes a standard in terms of academics and the placement offered. The B-School transformed my life and the analytical approach I developed to approach a problem, was all thanks to the college and the faculties. Institute is a perfect amalgamation of academics and extracurricular activities leading to the overall development of the student. I would definitely recommend IIMA among other top B-Schools simply for the campus life and some particular faculty members.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
My annual fee for my PGP program was around 10 lacs per annum, which is very much feasible. Especially, in terms of teaching imparted to us. On top of that, they have some of the best placement opportunities. Even the hostel rooms are beyond awesome. I think our college has the best hostel among all IIMs. Hostel rooms were offered on a single occupancy basis and we never had any issues regarding the accommodation.
The final placement of my batch was comparatively better for my batch. A good number of reputed companies visited specifically for the analytics and consulting domain. The highest package offered was 38.5 LPA and the average package was around 18.5 LPA. Summer placement for the internship process is also good with a decent stipend amount.
Admission is on the basis of CAT exam scores. IIM Ahmedabad organizes its own counseling round, which included a group discussion round and a Personal Interview. The selection process was pretty rigorous. I was nervous in the beginning but finally, I got into college and that's what matters.
Faculty members are good, especially for finance and operations courses. Guest lectures are a crucial part of our annual curriculum. In that way, we get industry exposure. Most of the teaching was by the means of Assignments, PowerPoint presentations, Case Study Analysis. Constructive feedback from our faculty members was really helpful in correcting our shortfalls.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
Course Structure was pretty updated as per the latest advancements in the corporate sector, specifically the future of the tech industry. The curriculum was industry-oriented and made us capable of tackling the rapidly changing corporate landscape. The exams were evaluated based on class performance, external exams, summer internship reports, dissertations, etc.
IIM Ahmedabad has all the required facilities. We have a state-of-the-art library, classrooms equipped with Wi-Fi, projectors, etc., AV-enabled auditoriums. We have 11 Bloomberg terminals. We have one central mess, and the quality of food is good because the mess is operated by the students only.
