Apart from providing good placements and high return on the educational investment, IIFM has got many unique advantages over other colleges. It has some of the best faculties who not only make the course easier to understand but at the same time they will teach you ethics and are always helpful. Infrastructure is great and any requests for addition or repairs are taken into consideration. It also provides opportunity to work in the policy making and research sector so easily and courses are designed carefully which impart students with knowledge in various subjects ranging from Information technologies, Financial management, Organization behavior, Research methodology to Forest operations, Wildlife conservation and Sustainable development. I'm certainly grateful to this institution and the faculties who have provided me with this invaluable experience.

This review is purely my personal one and based on my personal experiences. IIFM comes of the best places in India to learn and enjoy the nature and its management. It is a dream come true to anyone who wants to pursue higher management studies or research in the fields of environment, forests, and natural resources. It has few of the finest teaching faculty in the country for the courses it conduct. Its lush green campus surrounded with rich flora and fauna(especially peacocks and many other bird species) and its architecturally striking buildings and state-of-the-art infrastructure best supports the learning environment. Its hostels are well designed ensuring optimal space and ventilation to provide a very good living experience. IIFM intakes a limited number of students every year(120 for PGDFM) so there is a very good student-teacher ratio. It has appreciable academic, gender and regional diversity in its students. It is one of the most affordable top B-schools in India. IIIFM has 100% placement record for the PGDFM course since its inception with students being placed in various diverse sectors.
