Its not just a college; but a different world altogether

One of the most amazing facts about MICA is that some employers only hire MICAns. Well, this clearly shows that it has created that niche space in MR, Account Planning and Media Planning and Digital Marketing. While I genuinely think that we could enhance the employment vol and size for BM students. As far as Individual Growth is concerned, I can not begin to tell what MICA does to you when you are on an exploratory journey. Actually, it helps in raising those questions about self and others which you never thought existed in the first place. This place has something for everyone and more. What more does one want than to study with like-minded, brilliant people at a place where liberated minds rule the roost, ideas thrive and creativity and passion are the order of the dayTruly wonderful. Mica is not just a college. It's an experience. Mica is not just a BCD school. It has a spirit of its own. It will touch you, inspire you, for most, it will revolutionise you. P.s.: Not a single day in your Mican life is same.The code is to break the monotony and add a dollop of craziness every day. Proud Mican

It is the Place to be

Academics and Faculty: MICA is one of its kind, called the Mecca of aspirants, its neither a B School nor a C School. It is somewhere in between. B School for its emphasis on Strategic Marketing and C School for its ace in Media and Account Planning. MICA follows a continuous assessment system where students are taught not to just crunch numbers but also made efficient in writing poetry. Their development is exceptional due to the subjects taught. Though there are formal classroom sessions but a lot of learning comes from outside the classes and specialist from peers. Placement and Internships: As a cherry on the top, the learning provided at MICA is not only restricted to the classroom. students take up live projects with the industry,along with their summer internships, so as to get practical knowledge. Additionally, the key essential catalyst in this process of change is our highly accomplished and satisfactory faculty. Our faculty members are trained and experts in making us learn through teaching, consultancy, and cutting-edge research. Infrastructure: The infrastructure at MICA is one of its kind, I feel...the red bricks speak a lot of MICAn stories. There are 3 hostels for 1st-year students and 6 for the seniors. Every hostel is named after a flower. There is a library known as Knowledge Exchange and Information Centre (KEIC) which operates 24*7 to fulfill the knowledge hunger of students all the time. Also, talking about hunger, what click my mind is that the Mess at MICA aims for no Weight reduction for the students, serving lip-smacking meals of the day. One more e is the Chota canteen, which also works 24*7 to cater to post assignment stress and midnight munching. Eating habits are balanced by the sports availability, and not just the outdoor games, but the community centre the indoor game needs as well. Not forgetting the fully digitalised AC lecture halls. Last but not the least, the Mani Ayer Auditorium has an extraordinary place on MICA’s map. The audi is different to any other audi. Inside there are exposed red bricks and a floor sitting of colourful couches. That was my most favorite place! After a hectic day, there is a small temple where we can visit!! Nevertheless, the campus also has 24*7 wifi, light, sanitation and water facilities to make you feel as if you are at home. Clubs / Societies: There are a lot of clubs and societies. Based on your interest and liking you can apply for any of them. The process is very fair and competitive. Social atmosphere: Since Gujarat is a dry state, you will not get much to enjoy out there. But trust me you seniors and peers will not make you realize that you are surviving in a dry state. There are so many parties and events arranged so often where you can interact, mingle and dance the night off with your colleagues.

Not Just Another brick in the wall

I am still in my first trimester at MICA and am already in love with the place. The campus location is amazing with the campus itself a delight. MICAns are a unique and extraordinary bunch of individuals you won't find in any other b school. Our faculty and their teaching pedagogy challenge any preconceived notions and help us MICAns to ideate and create something better. This is clearly visible if someone goes through our list of notable alums. In the end, I would like to say, MICA is not just another post grad, it's an experience !

An expression of myself and a forecast to my future

Excellent infrastructure that helps students express themselves through their wall paintings, innumerable college activities that keep you engaged and on your feet. Has a wonderful 'Chota Canteen' where you get the most sumptuous food and if you have a new and unique recipe, they name the dish after you (Yeah ! they have Uchil burgers, Spanish paratha, chatur thali etc). The college has excellent faculty who have had real time industry experience and they also invite industry stalwarts to share their experiences with the students. Sports, library, committees, research wings help a student in their all-round development and hence this place is definitely a bang for your buck. The wonderful green campus is light up with different fests and cultural festivities at different times of the year. The only thing that they can improve here are the placements that fail to attract the big companies since the college is still presumed to be a mass command advertising college rather than a management school.

MICA is an experience, MICA is a home away from the home.

Rich in the curriculum, MICA stands out in extracurricular activities as well. The bare bricks infrastructure and nearly 3500 trees in the campus ensure that the students have a strong bond with nature. At MICA we are passionate about Brands, Advertising, Digital Marketing, Media, and Rural change. We share a close bond with our subbordinate and team spirit is what makes us what we are.
