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.

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 !

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.

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.

MICA-The land of Magic

Posted on 27 Aug' 16 by Ishani Sanyal

The first thing one experience after coming to MICA is its campus. The warm red bricks greet you with a smile as soon as you enter and the lush green milieu pampers you. The campus is one of the most beautiful ones I've ever been in and exploring it bit by bit is a sensation in itself. MICA is my first hostel experience and before coming I had presumed that I'd be terribly homesick. However, there is so much going on in MICA every single minute that there is no time to miss anyone or anything. Either it's an assignment, activity, committee work or creative indulgence but MICA makes sure that you are always up to something constructive. Oh yes, MICA is a haven for creative folks! If you think you have a creative side to yourself and want to explore it, MICA is the place for you! It lets you try so many things at so many levels. In terms of people who surround you, trust me, you’ll make some of your life’s strongest relations here. B-School life is said to be competitive but MICA, as always, is different. No one will ever deny you a help or a favour, ever! One of the greatest learnings here is from the peer group and we live together as one big family. Be it birthdays or festivals, we celebrate together. Not just peers, even seniors are extremely approachable and amiable. Other than that, we have our very own Chota canteen that’s open 24*7. Our midnight cravings are well taken care of. The mess food is awesome. The menu includes Italian, Hungarian, Chinese, Tandoori and what not. The classes are spacious and well equipped and our library-KEIC- is one of the best things on campus. We have a unique auditorium. Travel the world as much as you want but you’ll never find an auditorium so personalised and colourful (If you have doubts, just Google it). There is also an Open Air Theatre that can accommodate our full batch. Keeping things simple and short, it won’t be unfair to say that MICA is the best place to be in if you’re looking for a pattern in chaos, an oasis in desert and harmony in the competition. It’s a place which will make you work really hard but also ensure that you build a lot of memories along the way!

MICA is a management college with a unique curriculum. The management course with the focus on marketing, allows students to major in various disciplines within marketing in the second year - Media, advertising, digital communications and market research. Along with courses like economics. finance and HR, the college focuses on subjects such as semiotics, film studies, advertising management, culture etc which allow the students to get a wider exposure and understanding of the consumer. The strength of the batch is quite small, leading to a close-knit and exciting campus life. All festivals are celebrated with equal fervour, students come together to create installations and art on campus and students paint their rooms and personalise the hostels. The college also gets visiting faculty for a lot of courses who bring the industry closer to the students. Everything about the campus is beautiful, a lounge-like library complex, a 24-hour canteen and a lively sports culture.

The first thing you will love about the college is the beautiful green campus with the aesthetic red brick buildings. The infrastructure is amazing with all amenities on campus. The hostel life is one of a kind here where students are given complete freedom and it helps in their overall development. The course is well structured and the curriculum is specially designed with a focus on marketing and communication. But like any good B-school students lead a very busy life. The institution encourages a healthy balance of academics, sports and extracurricular activities which keep the students engaged all year round. The college has 100% placements and the diverse corporate exposure we gain throughout the year helps us immensely in the corporate world. If you are keen on pursuing a career in marketing then MICA is the place to be.

MICA is located in a lush-green surroundings of the outskirts of Ahmedabad. It is the first B-school in India to offer a residential-PGDM programme. The infrastructure of MICA is exquisite and the red-brick structure truly depicts the energy and vitality of the campus. The college provides world-class education with extremely erudite faculty. MICA is completely a student-run college; as in all the committees on campus are managed by the students. MICA provides amazing industry exposure. The college receives invite for participation in all the Top B-School competitions. The MICANs have the record of participating effectively and winning most of the competitions and hence bagging PPIs and PPOs. MICA has a record of achieving 100% placements every year. Around 100+ companies visit the campus every year and take the MICANs for principal roles in diverse sectors. Besides the campus life in MICA is absolutely amazing. Each hostel has a tradition and an exquisite story of its own. Each MICAN is unique and has a creative edge which distinguishes them from the rest of the students. MICA is not just a B-School, it is an inexpressible experience.

If you are an MBA aspirant and have an inclination towards Marketing, MICA is a good option that you can consider. Having a different entrance exam Structure than other B-Schools, it gives you a chance to study in a premier B-School even if you haven't done well in CAT. The peer group is very diverse and you get a chance to learn a lot from everyone . You will talk, eat and breathe Marketing here. MICA has courses which will allow you to dive deep into those aspects of Marketing which other institutes touch only superficially. MICAns join the industry in profiles of Marketing, Analytics, Advertising ,Media , Sales etc. Overall it provides an academically satisfying experience. Moreover, the campus life is coolest. People love to chill, party and travel. The environment in campus is healthy and everyone is very friendly and helpful, unlike the rat race that happens in other B-Schools. Join MICA if you like Marketing, are an open thinker and are enthusiastic towards excelling in life.

If you want to be in the entertainment or the media sector and you think you can think out of the box, then this is the place you should be in. MICA is one of the few good b-schools where engineers are a relative minority. Also the chances of finding the fairer sex is much higher here. There are many clubs on campus to keep you busy and help you bring out your creativity. You can also tune into the on campus radio station which is run by the students. The crowd here is overall a very good and very enthusiastic about the course.

The Creative B School

MICA- a communications school is one of the most creative business schools, providing a perfect balance between craftsmanship and business acumen. The course is designed such that the student gets the best of both worlds, with media studies, advertising, marketing and economics related subjects as the primary focus. The best thing about MICA is the way students are taught completely in sync with the environment. The fact the we have such a strong alumni connect which not only translates into better placement opportunities for the fellow students but also guest lectures, visiting faculties making sure the students are aware of the current trends in the industry. The facilities are at par with most of the b-schools if not more. With a functional gym (not present in most of the b-schools), the college breaks the norm of ‘only study, no play’ with multiple fests happening all year round. A definite choice for students striving to make a mark in the marketing industry.

MICA formerly known as the Mudra Institute of Communication, Ahmedabad is the sole residential institute in India and most probably Asia-Pacific dedicated to creating leadership in strategic marketing and communication. One of the premier institutes that can proudly call itself the school of ideas, With micans occupying esteemed positions in well established organizations like DDB Mudra, O & M, Starbucks India among others. With their prime focus on digital marketing, this school lays immense stress on ideation and creativity apart from the conventional business terms. The faculty is engaging making the subjects interesting. The facilities are at par with any b-school in the A-league. A definite pick for someone hoping to learn the tricks for advertising.

The quality of faculty had steadily declined over the years so would not recommend anyone to join anymore. But the students in general are smart and there's a culture of collaboration instead of competition unlike other b schools. The campus is very much alive most of the year worth some event or another so b it's good fun

This much green patch of bounded land with red bricked buildings here and there, none too high, silent by the day, crazy by the night, far from the typical urban life, yet another shot of reality, minds bubbling with ideas and life being cultivated through the hundreds of things that keep going on, is not just another college. How and why is not that well known to the outside world. Some things only we do, some places only we know of. For those who feel one's passion should drive his/her career, this place shall seem more than welcoming.
