Life and studies at GIM

Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | PGDM
The campus is one of the beautiful campuses. You feel are in between the mountains and very close to nature. Infrastructure is pretty decent. College is newly constructed so it has good architecture and facilities. Placement records have been improving continuously year by year. A rigorous curriculum and an excellent opportunity to be part of student clubs where you get to learn and experience a lot of things. Fees are slightly costlier compared to other institutes in the same league. Overall a good tier 2 MBA college.

GIM offers an extremely good atmosphere for students to study management sciences. It also has several international affiliations such as with the University of Antwerp. The institute is also known to conduct student as well as faculty exchange programmes with Fachhochschule Ingolstadt, Germany, and Universidade Catolica Portuguesa. Such initiatives are sure to offer students very good exposure to the corporate world.

Live an awesome campus life with GIM

Posted on 11 Sep' 16 by HARSHENDU DAVE
Batch of Jan. 1, 2015 | PGDM
Goa Institute of Management is amongst the Top 25 B-schools of the country. The main feature of the college is its beautiful campus. A sprawling 50 acres modern campus in the lap of the Sahyadris makes the study experience most memorable. After living a hard life in different populous areas of the country, it is the time to stay in the calm and divine milieu and pass the two most precious years of your life in the study of management. The infrastructure of the college is excellent with spacious air-conditioned classrooms, finance LAB, a rich library, well facilitates hostels , Gym, football ground, music room, prayer hall, multi-purpose hall and much more. The campus remains live for 24 hours and all days. Life at GIM is bubbling with energy and joy owing to the sports and cultural activities planned and conducted by the students. The range of activities is an amazing mosaic of filmmaking, choir, orchestra, movie club, theatre, quizzing, the celebration of festivals and ‘learning with fun’ for village children from the neighborhood. A galaxy of leaders from all walks of society, both nationally and internationally, visit GIM and share their insights with students and provide invaluable knowledge and motivation. The spirit of competitiveness is instilled in the students through a series of competitions of business analysis, current affairs, sports and cultural events.

Sprawling campus built in the midst of scenic beauty with state of the art infrastructure a swimming pool ,gym, tennis court ,football ground and the list goes on a slight disadvantage in terms of location for industry exposure yet more can be done by interaction with local industry events have to be scaled nation wide with more promotion and much more sponsorship in events placement is decent but much more work required in terms of increasing the brand image of GIM so that more companies visit the campus, location is another hindrance but overall the scene of placement is good with a student driven placement team dedicated to bringing in more and more companies big rooms, both single and double AC/ Non AC with enough washrooms in each floor, common rooms with sofas and tv sets,washing machines in each hostel and a doctor sitting from 4 to 6 pm quality of professors is good but needs to be better to compete with tier 1 colleges, most of the good profs are in marketing, visiting faculties fill the shortage in terms of diversity it is one of the best colleges to study with almost 50:50 gender diversity and equally good cultural diversity, college is not for the people keeping ROI as the first criteria as the fees are a bit high than other colleges in the same league but loans are easily available without a collateral security. A major DISADVANTAGE/ADVANTAGE is that college is located on uphill and commuting to the main city becomes both costly and time-consuming affair so at times you may get irritated but on hindsight, it helps you to avoid spending a lot of money

The institute offers a congenial environment to grow oneself with loads of outside opportunities always being made available . The faculty is great and helpful. The various advantage of the college includes its right number of student intake which is around 250, the residential programme which makes you learn to manage practically, great infrastructure, and all kinds of sports facilities available for the students. The college is completely student driven and that is a major learning experience in itself. The college has around 23 different clubs and societies managed by the students. We have a completely cashless campus.

With 82 percentile in XAT 2020, is there any possibility of getting a call from - GREAT LAKES GOA INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT FORE WELLINKAR

Sampriti Student Expert 17th Jan, 2020
With your XAT percentile you may not get a call from Great Lakes Chennai and GIM Goa but you'll definitely get a call from Prin LN Welingkar Institute of Management Development and Research Mumbai and Bangalore. All three are good colleges. Welingkar Mumbai requires a minimum of 80 percentile whereas for the other two colleges you'll have to have 90 percentile.

Apart from these you can check out the following colleges also.
  • XIME Bangalore
  • BIMTECH Noida
  • IFIM Business School Bangalore
  • NDIM New Delhi
  • Kirloskar Institute of Advanced Management Studies
These are also decent colleges and offer good placements with an average compensation package of 5-6 lakhs


Good Luck

please let me know, Gim vs symbiosis bangaluru, sign puna wich is better choice I got offer from both

Sampriti Student Expert 16th Jan, 2020
GIM goa would be a better than SIBM Bangalore. Both are equally good as far as marketing program is concerned but if you're considering any other program like Human Resource then GIM would be a better option. In fact GIM is one of the top 50 B schools in India. They have a pretty good alumni base and great reputation among corporates. Considering ROI also GIM would be your best option.

Good Luck
