    In New IIMs, its one of the best one. Good aspects include connectivity, location and the faculties and facilities they have provided.

In new IIMs it one of the best colleges and I can refer this to everyone who doesn't get top 10 IIMs. he/she may consider this colleges.

    As we all know, IIM colleges are the best management colleges of India. Same like other IIMs, IIM(amritsar) is also too good at everything. Their teachers, campus, placements, teaching methods ..all are outstanding. Only the campus should be well maintained. Firstly, student have to clear CAT entrance exam with good ranking to get admission in IIM for MBA. If a student do not achieve high scores in CAT examination, then he/she can not get admission here. I prefer this college because it is one of the best management colleges of india.
