I chose IIM Amritsar over other colleges because of the high quality of education and impeccable teaching methodology. At IIM Amritsar the professors are of top-notch quality and they provide us with practical knowledge apart from the textbook concepts. IIM Amritsar even though being a 3rd Gen IIM it has maintained 100% placements track record. I used to refer to Pagalguy for all the updates. The admission process is the same as most of the other Top B-Schools, it accepts CAT scores where students need to score above 90 percentile to get shortlisted. Selected students are then required to go through CAP where they take WAT/PI.
The course curriculum of the course is pretty dynamic and sufficient. The course is structured in such a way that helps students in learning about the basic concepts of management and business. It helps students in improving and polishing their technical knowledge and business knowledge by solving the case study's which will enable the students to solve real-life problems. There are around 20 professors in the college for 350 odd students. Professors are highly qualified with many years of experience. Due to COVID, it was all virtual zoom classes up until now. Term exams take place once in 3 months. It is just to check our understanding of each subject.
IIM Amritsar is maintaining 100% placements since the beginning. Summer Internship placements start after one and a half months in the 1st term itself. Once the student is offered a SIP in any company, he/she is not allowed to sit for any other company. There are a lot of companies which come for summers with few well-known companies and FMCG's and other startups too.
The overall fees would sum up to 12 lakhs for two years. It offers a limited number of scholarships to the eligible students based on their scholastic achievement and diversity. In the first year of the MBA program, it awards the scholarship by considering students prior academic records, the performance of the institute's MBA admission process and varsity.
"Aarunya" is the name of the IIM Amritsar's annual fest conducted the month of February or March. It is a two-day fest which includes various competitions and sports tournament. The library of IIM Amritsar is extensive and has every possible book. The clubs and committees at IIM Amritsar organize multiple events and guest lectures throughout the year. It also has it's very own Intra college sports tournament called Kritansh.
The infrastructure is really good. When it comes to hostel facilities, students are required to stay on the residential campus. Students are provided with a few single rooms and restroom sharing facility with high-speed internet. The food quality is above par which includes both veg and non-veg and the menu is decided to keep in considerations of the students.
Once a candidate clears CAT, he/she is expected to appear for a Written Assessment Test(WAT) and Personal Interview (PI) round. The process is common for most of the new and baby IIM's and it's called as Common Admission Process (CAP). A weighted score is calculated after all the rounds and selected students are informed about their candidature. In the PI round candidate will be asked about his/her academic qualification, background, about work experience.
From 2nd year or Term 4, students are eligible for placements. There are lot of companies that came for placements with Cipla, ICICI Lombard, Kotak, Jio Creative Labs, Xiaomi, Shoppers Stop as some of the big names that came for placements. Exact figures are given in the placement brochure and is cent percent reliable.
After the first semester or in between 1st semester the students became eligible for summer internships and campus placements. Companies like ICICI bank (22 seats), ICICI prudential (more than 10), Tommy Hilfiger (5), Byjus (between 6 to 7), HDFC AMC(10 to 12), Sundaram finance (2 to 4) many more companies visited for campus placements. The packages are offered between 3.5 to 10 lakhs annually. The college provides 100% placements to the students. My future plans are to continue work at a selected Company.
From the 4th semester, we become eligible for placements. There are many good companies that visited campus like Xiaomi, Accenture, Dell etc. We can't reveal the highest and lowest package as of now but it is decent enough I can assure for a student being an IIM student.
From the third semester of MBA college is offering campus placement to its students. Every year college is organizing job fest so minimum 15 to 20 companies are taking part in job fest. More than 100 students get selected in evert job fest. The minimum package was 1.8LACS and the maximum package was 5 lacs. My plan after the degree is to be an entrepreneur.
In the last semester of the course different companies visited on the campus for job placements like banks, automobile companies etc. 30 percent of the students get desired jobs. After completed my degree. My plan was to get a reputed job from the MNC companies.
As I was fond of machines and robots so it took me there to take admission and there was a new branch in north India called robotics so I chose that as this would have helped in my future as well as it was my interest. There was an interview by the principle they assessed out interest and knowledge then gave admission to me.
There is an abundance of job opportunity if you have the right skillset and IIMs are known for their placements. There are enough opportunities that one can apply from. Our college has seen companies like the big four, Amazon, byju etc.
SNAP and i scored average. I opt for this college because of unique mba in IT. Also, the kind of specialization it was offering.
Almost all batch out of 90. They offered average package of 5 lacs. HSBC, officeyes.com, zomato google, Asian paints etc.
