Choosing IIFT (Kolkata campus) over other b schools including new IIMs (Ranchi, Trichy, Udaipur, etc) was one of the best decision that I ever made. I know this as many of my friends are currently studying at these b schools. IIFT Kolkata is a sister campus of IIFT Delhi and shares with it the same legacy. Both the IIFT campuses(Delhi & Kolkata) run jointly with shared student bodies, clubs, committees, and magazines etc. The placements are also common and are held together at the Delhi campus. The corporate competitions that are opened for IIFT speak volume about the college. Many of the competitions include only top 8-10 b-schools in the country and IIFT finds a place in almost all these top competitions. Placements have improved significantly over the past couple of years and IIFT is slowly regaining its highest glory.

IIFT Kolkata provides the unique opportunity to pursue academics and a large number of other activities.From Model United Nations to Vivaan Business Summit , different aspects were covered in a most comprehensive manner.

A great learning experience and a roller coaster ride.

Posted on 31 Aug' 16 by ayush Singh
Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | MBA International Business
The college has a hostel which boasts of single accommodation for each student. The infrastructure of the college is fine and a person won't be repelled by it unless the humidity of Kolkata is not getting to his/her core. The students who come here are amazing with some of them having impeccable profiles. Overall, the crowd is quite good. The faculty is very knowledgeable although the length of the classes is a bit odd. It is among the largest for any B-school. Apart from academics, you get a chance to participate in a lot of corporate competitors ( some of them only allow IIFT) . However, it may get a little hectic sometimes because of the lengthy schedule. The fees of the college are comparable to other B-schools in the same league but still it feels a little high. Overall, my experience in this college has been a good one.

The hostels and the campus are very good. We get a single accommodation room which is very convenient to study late into the nights. The teachers are all excellent and are very approachable. There are guest lectures conducted almost two - three times every week and we get to hear experiences from some of the industry stalwarts. All of the students give the same exams and they are all uniformly excellent. There is much diversity in the batch, so there is something to learn from every student. Joining this college is fast becoming one of the best decisions of my life!

Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | MBA International Business
Barring few discomforts, the college is really a place to be. The campus is placed quite far from main city, it is quite and serene. The campus has a big pond adding to its aesthetic beauty. The campus has gym newly opened couple of days back. The college provides lots of opportunities to interact with Industry stalwarts through its Head Start Guest Lecture Series. The college is really worth its salt and every management aspirant should have this one right at the top of the list of his/her dream college.

IIFT: Where excellence is a way of life

Posted on 28 Aug' 16 by Hetal Patel
Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | MBA International Business
The best thing about IIFT is its students. Students from diverse cultural and educational background come to study here. This provides everyone with an opportunity to learn from one another. The infrastructure of the Kolkata campus is perfect be it digital room, library, classrooms, gym or the hostel block. The campus is fully equipped with the latest technology. Every week, we have 3-4 Guest Lectures here at IIFT which allows us to interact with the Industry stalwarts. As far as placements go, IIFT succeeds every year in getting 100% placement. The average salary offered last year was 18 LPA and the highest CTC offered was 1 crore. Talking about professors, we have some of the best academicians at IIFT. Faculties at IIFT are also working on many government projects at the same time. Students also get the opportunity to work with faculties on some of the projects.

The Mecca of Foreign Trade

Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | MBA International Business
With top notch facilities, it's a pleasure to be studying in IIFT. The green campus provides a serene and calm environment to learn management studies. The faculty is world class with professors being expert in their domains and having credentials like being Fulbright scholars. There is a lot of peer to peer learning and one is able to develop himself not just academically but also holistically. The hostels are fantastic too. Though sports facilities are scant right now, constant efforts are being put into plug whatever little gaps may exist right now. Reputed companies visit the campus for placements and offer students jobs with handsome salaries.

Everything a B School grad needs to know

Posted on 26 Aug' 16 by Smrutinjay Mishra
Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | MBA International Business
The campus culture at IIFT is extraordinary, with a unique relationship between students of both years as well as with the faculty and industry. The learning curve is extremely steep, and students are expected to perform at the peak of their abilities and build upon the same, right from day 1. To be fair, the college is not meant for those who envision a honeymoon period during their MBA, but rather for those who are preparing for a life of rigor, challenges and improving upon their skill set both inside the class and outside. Students are also continuously encouraged to participate in corporate competitions and attend guest lectures by renowned industry leaders, while working on multiple deadlines simultaneously, in order to learn multi-tasking and get new perspectives on what is expected out of them during the corporate life awaiting them outside IIFT. All in all, the entire process is extremely enriching and the value that this institution provides as a whole cannot be expressed in either statements or monetary value alone.

Various activities are undertaken to bolster the industry experience in terms of live projects, assignments, summer internships and other competitions to bring the students as close to the practical life and increase the know-how of the students across different domains such as marketing, finance, consulting - strategy, trade, and operations among the few.

IIFT is one of the most coveted brands amongst the top B-schools in India and deservedly so. Although the Kolkata campus is relatively new but it lags nowhere either in terms of infrastructure or placements. The library is full of the latest international journals and also free Bloomberg access to the students. The college scores highly in terms of providing quality industry exposure and throws up ample number of opportunities for its students to interact with the industry stalwarts.

The course curriculum and the faculty at the institute are top-notch with focus o real-time application of the classroom teaching to the real world.The corporate exposure through guest lectures,events helps you to understand the requirements of the industry as well as know the industry better.The Alumni always give their best to help the college in getting better through better placements.The infrastructure in terms of sports facilities and auditorium is a big problem which might trouble the students.The ROI is a bit on the negative side but if a student is serious enough and work hard it will not an issue.Lastly be prepared to face academic rigour of the highest order if you are planning to join the college.

The infrastructure facilities are good as far as the academic block is concerned. The hostel could have been better on that aspect. The Corporate Relations Team is hard working and are giving all they have to increase industry and corporate exposure. The seniors are a great bunch of people and are extremely helpful. Its a close knit student community where almost everyone knows every other person. The parties, those late night gossips, helping each other when needed and the will to succeed as a batch is a thing I cherish the most here.I am yet to go in for the summer placements but I am sure it will be a great learning experience considering the profile of batch and the competitiveness. The college as a whole could have had better sports facilities as currently, the only sports one can play here is Table Tennis. The affordability could have been better as the fee is at the higher end of the spectrum when compared to other B-Schools. The crowd here is elite with some great profiles, backed by sharp and focused minds. The mantra here: Work harder, and party even harder.

Some of the best students in India, best in class faculty, excellent hostel facility (single rooms), placements among the top 10 B-schools in India. Lot of infrastructure yet to be developed. Will soon have exclusive placements unlike now where placements happen from the common pool of Delhi and Kolkata. Lots of core MBA related clubs, helps in preparation through fun events. Sports facilities being developed and currently shares facilities with nearby college. Guest Lecture series that improve industry connections and visibility among Indian Corporate scenario.

The first thing is about the campus. One of the best in the country and it adds more charm to life at IIFT. The surrounding atmosphere is airy and quiet as opposed to the crowded noisy ones. IIFT boasts of having a niche MBA (INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS) course and the difference between IIFT and other colleges are quite visible in the pedagogy, culture and industry exposure provided.

IIFT- The best B-School for International Business

Posted on 26 Aug' 16 by Gunjan
Batch of Jan. 1, 2018 | MBA International Business
The Indian Institute of Foreign Trade, one of the premier B-schools of the country has 2 campuses - one in Delhi and the second one in Kolkata. It was certainly a life-changing the experience for me - you get the access to one of the most qualified faculty in B-School who placed equal importance on both studies and extra-curricular activities. Hostels are single occupancy based. Classrooms are air-conditioned. It also has 3 ponds in the campus. IIFT Kolkata, over the years, has established itself as a big and visible brand not only in India but abroad too. The placement records are 100% with one of highest in India. So overall the campus life is Top-Notch !

Batch of Jan. 1, 2017 | MBA International Business
The Kolkata campus of Indian Institute of Foreign Trade is newly built, with an excellent infrastructure. The college is spread over 7 acres of land, with a lake in the middle and two under construction. There is an academic block, faculty quarters and student hostel. The hostel has single rooms, along with a reading room, common rooms and a recreation room with TT table and other games. The college life is pretty hectic, with classes that can even extend during the weekends. Apart from regular classes, lots of guest lectures take place, some within the campus and some through video conferencing with the Delhi campus. Students also get the opportunity to take part in corporate competitions to enhance their knowledge and exposure. The faculty here is very experienced with a great amount of work experience in their domains. The faculties of economics and trade are among the best one can find in any college. There are 3 dedicated Bloomberg terminals within the library which the students can access any time of the day. Apart from this, the students also take part in trade-related projects with the faculties which are directly under the purview of the government. There are lots of extra-curricular activities also, like business summit Vivaan, sports fest Titanomachy, yearly Alumni meet, along with the celebrations of festivals and other events. The campus hosted its first Model United Nations event in August 2016 and will host its first cultural festival Advait in Jan, 2017. The placements are excellent and happen in unison with the Delhi campus. Top companies from all the domains come to IIFT for recruitments in summers as well as finals. The placement reports are available online which can provide a detailed data about the visiting companies and average package.

If MBA is about getting ahead, IIFT sure gives a head start

Posted on 24 Oct' 15 by Ankit Pathak
Batch of Jan. 1, 2017 | MBA International Business
It's strange how the choice of a college decides the life one's going to live. More so, when the course happens to be MBA. So, choosing the right college becomes the prerequisite to success and one of the best decisions to take is to join IIFT. IIFT retains a distinct identity due to its legacy, the International Business angle, the huge alumni network, highly qualified faculties and also the option to pursue dual specialization. One of the best thing here is the kind of exposure you get. You can listen to the industry leaders and the govt officials discussing about the policies in the seminars and conclaves held regularly. When it comes to classroom learning, the faculties are sterling. Due to their high qualifications as well as diverse experience while teaching around the globe and consulting large companies, they fill the lecture with so much knowledge that one sees an entire new world being revealed in front of his eyes. IIFT has two campuses, one in Delhi and the other in Kolkata. The Kolkata campus is about a decade old and had been running from a rented premises but got it's own campus this year with a single room hostel facility and digitally equipped and well built classrooms. Now coming to the placements, both the campuses have a joint placement with the Kolkata students travelling to Delhi for about one month during the placement season. The recently concluded summer placements saw a plethora of companies with the average stipend rising to about 1.1 lakhs, about 30% higher than the previous year. We saw the companies of the likes of GE, Godrej, CEB Consulting, Marico, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, HDFC, CitiBank, Loreal's, Russel Reynold's and Associates, Boeing, Microsoft, Google, IBM,etc The entire detail would be available in the placement report. So, putting it in a nutshell, IIFT is the place to be when the companies are focusing more on internationalization to increase their growth and demand. Also, the excellent placements and exposure make sure that these two years turn out to be the most productive ones of your life.

The faculty are exceptional and the assignments and projects that we get involved in are latest as per the Industry trends. The placements are at par with the B. schools of its league. The internal sports fest Titanomachy is the best part.
