A GREAT PLACE TO STUDY
Research for students can be more focused on ground realities linked to technological changes.
I took CAT was the entrance exam I scored 99.25 percentile and got calls from B,L,I,K. I cleared all and accepted IIMB.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
It bordered on feasible during my time. In the recent years, I think the IIMs have steadily hiked their rates. They appear to be competing with private institutions and I'm not sure how many people they will end up losing as a result of this.
Excellent 100 percent batch placement since it was IIMB. The offers on campus were massive from I-Banks and several PE firms as well. A great financial start to careers of folks for whom big money was important.
The hostel facilities have been upgraded and I enjoyed year 2. Year 1 had a fair amount to be desired. The rooms were generally sufficient for 1 person. The mess food was slightly above average. Breakfast was my favorite meal.
Alumni network is good and meets annually and also at events. The connections always help to make introductions and remove barriers during casual conversations.
Faculty are brilliant A lot of them have done quality research and the extent of independent thought is high. Also they frequently collaborate globally and in India with academia as well as industry and this helps provide a holistic approach to management education.
The exams were regular and the frequency high. However given the generally rigorous structure at a B-school I think it was a good practice to keep these things as regular as possible.
COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW
The course curriculum was diverse including advance Finacc,Advanced Corp Fin,Social Entrepreneurship,Brand Management to name a few. It was a great variety of courses on offer.
General stipend offered varied from as low as 10 grand a month all the way to a couple of lakhs a month. My internship experience with a company owned by a PE firm was average.
Cultural Once a year,all india fest Wonderful experience was open to alumni as well which made it exciting management Fest regular and allowed great industry interaction.
LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS
I did not avail any loan. Several banks line up since it was IIM-B. Several folks availed of the offers and the payment needed to only be made later.
