Best management College of india

Batch of Jan. 1, 2019 | PGP Food and Agribusiness Management
It's awesome all the hard work you put in preparing for CAT, it is worth it. The infrastructure of the college is awesome. The faculty is the best faculty you will find in any IIM. Placements are also really good most the students opt for some go for entrepreneurship. The fee of the college gets covered within one year of your placement. BUT only if you work hard. The city is awesome plus you also get really good exposure because of an immense number of industries nearby. Simply you just need to put some efforts and you will get in.

Some people say A in IIM-A stands for academic rigor. First, that's a fact. The entire first year program is so gracefully packed, it will push you just to your limits. It’s not just about academics either, it’s about projects, clubs, sports and much more. The best part, however, is the people you get to meet here.

Talented faculty and peer group. Highly competitive, many people lack humility. Not a place to make good friends bit great for building a network. Great place to grow professionally but not personally. Academic rigor ironically can hinder learning. You can be yourself and collaborate effectively with peers.

Well, people say IIMA is the mecca of management education in India and they're aren't lying! It indeed is the best place to enhance your overall personality. The other part is what helps us grow and prosper as a person. The umpteen number of clubs, activities, elected positions of responsibility, etc. gives every student a chance to hone their leadership potential and get prepared for bigger challenges in life. The campus is full of cultural events, parties, music shows, dance shows, dramas, etc. That was about general life at IIMA, the FABM program in specific is ranked number 1 in the entire world. The first year of study is common with the flagship PGP program students. The second year is more specific to the Food and Agribusiness sector. There are electives to choose from which gives a fair amount of flexibility to the students. There are numerous competitions and projects which provide great learning. Placements are great if you are prepared enough, good otherwise. Awesome support system for entrepreneurship.

I have calls from IIM A,B,C and I am sure I will covert at least one of them. I have a full-time offer from Axtria with in-hand cash 10LPA + other benefits over and above in campus placements. I know its too early to ask without clearing IIM interviews, but which one to choose? IIM/Job?

Vikas gehlot 21st Jan, 2020

The answer depends upon several factors

The first and foremost thing is that if you are interested in management jobs then you should choose IIM but it is not a simple because on one hand you are losing a job and as well as the fee for IIM is very high and you need to take a loan so you have to think on that line also.

The one cases if you are financially very strong and you can find your studies without taking loan then it is best to go for IIM or else if you can get anthem scholarship then it is also good to choose IIM.

In the case when you need to take a loan you need to be prepared that you have to repay the loan and it will take around 2 to 3 years to repay the loan.

The best part in choosing Iim is that you will be going in management jobs and it will guarantee you a safe future.

if you have not explore the field in which you got the job offer then it is also advisable that you explore sometime the field in which you got the job maybe give 2 to 3 years and then try for IIM. Getting into IIM is not an easy job therefore it is recommended that try the best way possible in your interview if you get in then best up on your financial situation you should choose it..

Hi iam having dyslexia, and government hospital certificate for learning disability, can I get pwd (person with disabilities) quota in iim for mba

Harshita Gupta 18th Jan, 2020
Hey,

IIM has given the criteria for PwD under the " Rights of person with Disabilities Act 2006" and according to it, a person must not have disabilities less than 40% , which means disability should be 40% affective.
The categories of disabilities considered under the Act are as follows:
  • Blindness and low vision.
  • Deaf and hard of hearing.
  • locomotor disability including cerebral palsy, leprosy cured, dwarfism, acid attack victims and muscular dystrophy.
  • autism, intellectual disability, specific learning disability and mental illness.
And few others. So according to the last point mentioned above, you are eligible and might get admission in pwd category if you meet the requirements of scores and cut-off and if you fulfill the criteria.

hope this helps!

I am a chartered accountant and belonging to non creamy obc layer . what percetile should I get to get a call from iim Ahmedabad

Sampriti Student Expert 17th Jan, 2020
For OBC candidates the minimum overall percentile required in CAT is 75 with the sectional cutoffs being 65 in each section. But you should score 80-85 percentile in order to be on the safer side as IIMs do a very rigorous shortlisting based on the profile, candidate's CAT percentile and extra curricular achievements.

All the very best
