Remarks -

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 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.

The 2 years at IIMA are un-paralleled in terms of learning and developing a well-rounded personality. Working beside and learning from some of the best brains and talents around, it not only teaches you the importance of humility and remaining grounded, but enlivens a constant pursuit to grow and get better at what you do.
