Course Curriculum Overview

10/10

As a food process engineer, I don't want to leave my field of interest in food and agriculture. This is the primary reason to pursue this course. Faculty:student ration = 1:5(as far as I remember). Highly qualified and experienced faculty with impeccable teaching that provides the joy of learning to the learners. There will be three terms with two slots per term i.e. total of 6 slots. As IIMA is already known for its academic rigour, don't like to mention much about it but keep in your mind that you're competing with the most creamy layer of the country. The exams are highly application-oriented and it is difficult to score good marks if proper attention wasn't given to the classes.

Internships Opportunities

10/10

Around 40 firms were participated in the summer internship process and offered about 65+ roles for the batch 2019-21. The placements are 100% and provide the best stipend w.r.t other agribusiness courses (AFAIK). The roles and projects vary across different domains.

Placement Experience

8/10

Summer placement for the internship will be held during the second term preferably in November. Around 40 firms visited exclusively for FABM students and offered almost 65+ roles (AFAIK) for the 2019-2021 batch. The IPRS authenticated report will have the details regarding the highest and average package. 100% summer placement. I'm not aware of the final placements. My plans after the degree continuing in the corporate job and get rid of the hefty educational loan.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions

PGP-FABM Fee for 2019-21: Rs.11,14,500/year. According to today's news, the new fee is about 28 lakhs for the course (not sure if this info is applicable to FABM as well or not). Depends on economic condition scholarships are provided. Please refer to the IIMA website. Financial Assistance from different banks will be provided without collateral. I got into one of the reputed corporate company with a lucrative stipend amount.

Campus Life

10/10

A number of fests available according to different interests. A plethora of books available at Vikram Sarabhai Library and numerous journals and databases accessibility. Well furnished and comfortable classrooms. Well equipped sports and gym facilities. Almost 45 clubs are available to choose from the candidate's interest.

Hostel Facilities

9/10

The hostel fee was included in the Academic fee itself. The amenities are a wardrobe, one office chair, and a normal chair, cot and bed, a washing machine, hot water, mineral water, a refrigerator, a microwave oven, etc. No registration process as far as I remember and hostel facilities are affordable. It is compulsory to stay during the 1st year of the course and most of the students live inside the campus. So, PG isn't recommended.

Interview Experience

10/10

AWT Topic: Numerous ranking agencies making business with educational institutes. 200-250 words (10-20 mins duration) PI: Tell me about yourself, BTech Project, Why MBA?, Boyle's law-derivation, graph, and its name, Maxima, Minima (12 concepts as I was an engineer), and Hobbies. Preparation Tips: Know about you, your place and it's importance, current affairs and be honest to the interviewer, give mock interviews (min. of 4-5). I've to mention about interviewers is that they're gentle (wo)men, the interview went comfortably as they gave time to settle down with general chit chat.

From mid to 4th trimester final placements begin. Summar placements begin in 2nd trimester. One offer per candidate policy is there. So once selected you can't sit for other companies visiting the campus. The package is quite decent. 95% of students get placed.

Admission

Admissions are granted on the basis of merit in the CMAT exam. My CMAT score was pretty decent, but still, I have to wait for the second round of counselings. After that, I appeared for the interview round and Group discussion, which was pretty easy for me as I was practicing for the interview round and giving mock interviews.

Placement Experience

Placements were okayish. Our institute had corporate tie ups with many reputable companies, which they used to invite for the campus placements. Packages offered were also good. the highest package went as high as 12 LPA, while the average package offered was of 4 LPA.
