What are my chances of getting into top IIM's or the new IIM's. I have 97% in Xth, 93% in XIIth and 59% in UG. Is my UG percent a reason for concern? Except A,B what all IIM's do I have a chance at?
Getting into IIMs has always been competitive however that has been the case for the general PG course which is based on CAT scores and subsequent WAT and PI. However in recent times IIMs have realized that specialization is the need of the hour. This is result of diverse adoption of technology expertise across industries which has led to tech knowledge becoming the primary driver of performance. What this has led the IIMs to do is partner up with academic partners to develop specialized courses specific to industries. For example, the IIM analytics courses (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/home) by IIM Lucknow are developed together with Wiley innovation council and IIM faculty. Further these courses are customized for business leaders who have the IIM business and data analytics course (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/IIM-Lucknow) while there is another custom Analytics course for finance and accounting professionals (https://mileseducation.com/finance/IIM-Lucknow-Analytics) . Since these courses are exclusively designed for an industry, the enrollments do not see the generic competition based on CAT scores. You can check your eligibility (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/home) and apply for enrollment.
Interestingly these courses give you the IIM Lucknow alumni status as well.
All the best.
IIM seats are extremely competitive and there are times many deserving students miss out on the IIM opportunity just because of the high competition and high cut offs on CAT scores. It is notable that while the general programs may be not easily accessible to students there are new specialization PGDBM and certification programs of IIMs where enrollment is fairly easier. For example the analytics courses offered by IIM Lucknow for working professionals have reasonably relaxed enrollment criteria (https://mileseducation.com/analytics/IIM-Lucknow) . Some courses are further specialized for students from a particaular field like the IIM-L - Wiley Executive Education Program in Analytics for Finance & Accounting Professionals (https://mileseducation.com/finance/IIM-Lucknow-Analytics) .
