Ques. How did IIM Visakhapatnam do better at placements than some of the second generation IIMs?

● Top Answer By Poorva Chourasia on 15 Feb 21

Ans. IIM Visakhapatnam had a lot of help from IIM Bangalore for placements in the first few batches. A pool summer placement process was organized at Bangalore for the first three batches. This resulted in students interning at companies like Cloudtail and Directi. If you are lucky, you will find colleagues from colleges like IIM Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Calcutta, XLRI, and FMS. The internship is a great opportunity for you and it will pose a strong point in job interviews. Moreover, my advice to you would be to network as much as possible. You will probably earn a 6 figure monthly stipend during the summer internship. Eventually, as students began to perform well and some of them at par with the top three IIMS (ABC), PPOs began loyally recruiting students from the college. These job profiles are the same as those offered at IIM Bangalore. An example of this would be that of Bosch. It offers a Junior Manager’s program available only to premier campuses like IIM Bangalore, IIFT Delhi, etc. as seen on LinkedIn. It even has an international visit to Germany included. Another major reason would be that this industry prefers students who have previously done summer internships. This PPO percentage was higher for the first two batches from IIM Visakhapatnam since most of the students were taught by IIM Bangalore professors.  Here are some other statistics for placements at IIM Visakhapatnam: Many IIM V students are at the consultant level at the Government of Andhra Pradesh. The batch size of the first two years was only 50. Since most of the students were taught by IIM B faculty, they have more knowledge and experience. 18% of the students secured a PPO here, which is higher than any other second-generation IIM. All these factors combined above have now ensured that IIM Visakhapatnam does better in placements than any other second-generation IIM. Currently, the highest CTC stands at INR 27 LPA and a minimum at INR 10 LPA. Companies like Yes Bank, Amul, and Crompton Greaves regularly visit the institute for placements.Read more

Ques. What CAT percentile do I need for the IIM Visakhapatnam?

● Top Answer By Meghdeepa Mondal on 11 Feb 21

Ans. Though the CAT cut-offs vary every year, it is generally seen to have close proximity in consecutive years. Here are the data for 2020, along with sectional cut-offs, for every category. 2020 Cutoff: Category VARC (percentile) LRDI (percentile) QUANT (percentile) Overall (percentile) General 80 80 80 85 OBC-NCL 70 70 70 75 EWS 70 70 70 75 SC 50 50 50 55 ST 30 30 30 40 PWD 30 30 30 40 The cutoff depends on many parameters and not just only on the CAT score. For example, candidates from non-engineering backgrounds can have a lower cutoff score but still secure a seat due to the diversity point. Every year, the final selection phase gets completed tentatively by April and the candidates get emails regarding the information and further communication. After being selected, candidates have to reconfirm their choice within a fixed amount of time, and only then they are further communicated and invited for the following rounds.Read more

Ques. How is IIM Visakhapatnam so far?

● Top Answer By Mohit Sarohi on 11 Feb 21

Ans. According to recent reports, IIM Visakhapatnam is on an excellent pace of development in all means. Students of IIM Visakhapatnam are seen to excel in various corporate competitions like V-guard, KPMG, etc. There are notifications of students succeeding in competitions every now and then, and the credit goes to the faculty, their guidance and support. The table below gives a brief overview of the institute. Total Fees (PGP) 13.65 Lakhs Highest Salary Offered 27 LPA Median Salary Offered 12 LPA Cut-off (CAT) 92 percentile Faculties: The professors and lecturers are considered to be among the best in the country. Some of their lessons seem to be worth, if not more, that is spent for the degree. Each faculty has a different way of teaching, and something interesting and exciting comes up from everyone. The professors encourage free-minded opinions from students. Placements: The placement report of IIM Visakhapatnam is published on the official website of the institute. According to the recent statistics, the placement of IIM Visakhapatnam is quite decent and satisfying. IIM Visakhapatnam is known for providing genuine placement reports. They don’t add expenses like travel, etc to the CTC, which is the case in some other institutes. So, it can be considered 100% authentic. The institute has seen the best recruiters visiting the campus for placement. Location and facilities: Vizag is a beautiful city. The beachside hostel of the institute offers a heavenly view every morning and evening. There is some provision of sports for students, but not too good due to lack of infrastructure. It is expected that this will be sorted in the permanent campus. Facilities like free gym membership in one of the best gyms in the city (Talwalkars) is provided by IIM. Overall, it is a definite verdict that IIM Visakhapatnam has a lot to offer to its students, including curriculum, activities, and placement.Read more

Ques. Should I join TCS or IIM Visakhapatnam?

● Top Answer By Monika on 11 Feb 21

Ans. Considering TCS being an IT company providing employment and opportunities to learn and IIM Visakhapatnam a considerable new IIM, here are a few pros and cons regarding both the decisions. TCS: Being in TCS, you will be surrounded by fast-paced engineering graduates, working in IT. Usually, candidates working in TCS get enough (sometimes a lot of) time for preparation of CAT, GMAT, etc. This sort of preparation is even enough for getting a seat in old IIMs. Adding to the advantage, the work experience you will have would help you score even better than fresh academics. IIM Visakhapatnam: On the other hand, joining IIM Visakhapatnam has a different set of advantages and disadvantages. Being a new IIM, the faculty and infrastructure are being established with time. In a new IIM, you will get the chance to learn a lot from the development of new committees and clubs, which proves to be quite important later. The mentoring institute, i.e. IIM Bangalore brings an excellent set of faculties and industry experts for a top-level coaching and management education. But, the placement here is the main concern. Being a new IIM, the institute cannot even compete with top private B-Schools in India, which is a serious disadvantage. The government of Andhra Pradesh is promoting a lot of Startups to make good prospects. A start-up village is set up in Vizag. Overall, the above factors give a brief overview of the scenarios in both choices. The final decision is yours, whether to join the IT industry, get prepared, and crack CAT, or take up IIM Visakhapatnam and get a dive into the unexplored opportunities.Read more

Admission :

There is no Group discussion round for the admission process at IIMV. The institute shortlists the candidates on the basis of CAT score and call them for the PI round. The Personal interview round is conducted by the admission committee and board. The PI round alone has 25% weightage on the overall performance of the candidate. The questions asked in the interview are based on previous work experience (if any), based on concepts learned at Bachelor's level. Students with work experience are asked about their present job role, projects one is working on, tools used and several related terms as used in a workplace.

Remarks :

I chose IIM Visakhapatnam because among the new generation IIMs, it is the most promising one which offers 100% placement each year. For admission, the institute considers CAT score and previous work experience. The admission process was conducted in 3 phases, where the final selection was processed on the basis of personal interview.

Admission :

To pass the first phase, I submitted my CAT scores of 82% along with my one-year work experience in an ecommerce company. After I was selected based on my academic record and CAT scores, I then got a call for the personal interview and written test. To prepare for the PI, I thoroughly read most of the prep books available in the market because the interview was to test my knowledge and my personality. So, it was quite tense.

Remarks :

It was my dream to study at an IIM institute and to succeed that dream, I applied to all the IIMs that were close enough from my hometown and from all of them, I got selected here and I was soo lucky that this one was to closest so I could easily visit my parents during holidays. I applied here online through the official website of the the college along with an application fee for the process. I don't remember the deadline but I applied here during the month of January.

Remarks :

Among the new generation IIMs, IIM Visakhapatnam is the most promising one, offering a 100% placement every year. Among all other new IIMs, the faculty of IIM V is provided by IIM Bangalore. As a fact, the quality of education is always at par with IIM Bangalore. To add, IIM Bangalore has some of the best faculties that anyone can vouch for the brand name, IIM. IIM Visakhapatnam offers a world-class quality course curriculum and classroom environment owing to its sponsored International-level Immersion programs as well as classrooms modeled as of Harvard Business School.

Remarks :

I had applied to nearly all IIMs through CAT but did not get shortlisted by the IIMs at Bangalore, Calcutta, Kozhikode, Lucknow, or Indore, so I was relieved to get one from Vishakhapatnam. I was already planning to go to an IIM but I was worried it would be one of low quality. I anyways gave the second application to IIMV after being shortlisted, and gave the personal interview. The admission process spanned a few months, with me submitting the application in February, to the Interview being held in April, to the admission offer arriving in May.

Remarks :

IIMV emphasis on CAT score and work experience for the selection process in the PGP program. Since CAT exams are considered for the previous year, I appeared for CAT 2017 to get admission in 2018. The admission process was conducted in 3 phases, where the final selection was processed on the basis of personal interview. IIMV is a reputed college in Vishakhapatnam and records top placements among 10 IIMs.

Remarks :

My sole reason for going here was the scholarships it offered eligible candidates. I come from a very financially weak family but thanks to my academic performance I was eligible for their need-based financial aid. Another reason was that Visakhapatnam was not too far from my home in Hyderabad so it solidified my choice. The faculty back then was from IIM Bangalore, which meant that a brilliant management education was guaranteed.

Remarks :

Because it was a new IIM so there were many things to be explored and being one of the first few batches you get a bit more attention. The Admission process was quite simple and most of the things were taken care of by the college itself. The duration of the entire course was of two years.

Remarks :

Because this is one of the premier B school, the quality of study plus the networking opportunity is very good. MBA course is not just about studies but rather learning from peer and getting to know the corporate world a little more. I am a fresher so this was the major cause of me joining MBA in IIMV, plus a got a good score and doesn't want to waste it.

"The Institute of Vision"

Many of Second and Third generation IIM's admission process is done by Common Admission Process (CAP), whereas IIM Visakhapatnam conducts separate process for the admission. It evaluates candidates by using multiple parameters which includes academic performance in 10th, 12th, graduation and CAT Score along with relevant work experience to provide admission to the flagship PGP program. Based on all these parameters with a specific set of weightages to each category candidates are shortlisted for the interview.

"IIM Visakhapatnam Review"

IIM Visakhapatnam provides a proper balance between studies and extra curriculum activities. I chose IIM Visakhapatnam because it provides great hostel accommodation, excellent sports facility and world-class academic facilities. The Institute provides 100% job opportunities to students during the final placement process. The admission process is so smooth, initially, the institute releases a merit list based on the CAT score, then the shortlisted students will be called for the personal interview process. The final selection will be based on the CAT score, PI and profile score.
