Best management College of india

Posted on 09 Feb' 17 by Divyansh
Batch of 2019 | PGP in Food and Agri Business 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.

About College:

IIM- Ahmedabad, the name itself has become synonymous with excellence. In India, this tag bears fruit for one’s entire lifetime. Indeed, it is often said, that Indian kids grow up hearing more about IIM-A than they do about their own school, such is the clamour to get in here. 

Ahmedabad became the second city in India after Kolkata to have an Indian Institute of Management. The Planning Commission had decided post-independence the need for such centres of excellence, which led to the establishment of the same. The extremely well-stocked library is named after Vikram Sarabhai who was one of the key proponents in founding this place in 1961. The institute was designed by the National Institute of Design (NID) also based in Ahmedabad. It sits on a 106-acre campus. Business tycoon Kasturbhai Lalbhai was another important personality behind the establishment. In addition to its flagship PGDM/MBA, the IIM-A also provides short-term certifications, online programmes and a one-year programme specially catered to working industry professionals who decide to drop out for a year. There is also a course dedicated to the booming field of agri-business management and one specifically for the armed forces. IIM-A has also set up several exchange programmes with top international universities such as the HEC-Paris, University of Cologne and ESSEC Business School in Paris. 

IIM Ahmedabad has always been famous for its high-stakes placements record. Students have regularly been gobbled up on very high packages from some of the top consultancy firms such as the big 3 of BCG, Bain and McKinsey. Recruitments have also been in audit, finance, banking, insurance, FMCG, IT, manufacturing, research, think tanks and the government sector. This has been one of the reasons, but not the only one for IIM-A receiving top ranks in several national and international rankings. The Financial Times Masters in Management Rankings has repeatedly assigned top ranks. The finishes have been 15th, 16th, 21st and 19th between 2015 and 2018 respectively. The same London based body’s Global MBA rankings saw ranks of 26th, 24th, 29th and 31st those years. The agribusiness course in a sense has done even better-finishing 1st for three years in a row from 2015/16 onwards in the Eduniversal Best Master’s Rankings in Agribusiness/Food Industry Management. Among domestic rankings, IIM-A has topped consistently in the country on prestigious platforms such as Business World (BW), Business India (BI), Business Today (BT), Outlook and the government body NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework).  

IIM-A was earlier, like several of the other IIMs notorious for its relatively low levels of diversity among the student pool. The majority were male, engineers with work experience. That is why the government has introduced diversity norms to ensure there is better representation among women, freshers and those from diverse career paths such as commerce, management, law, medical, the general sciences, the social sciences and humanities. Another major development that the IIMs including Ahmedabad have been part of has been the passing of the IIM Bill, 2017. This has allowed greater levels of autonomy to the institutes, with greater freedom from government interference. In addition, IIMs are now able to dole out MBA degrees and not the Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM) as was earlier the case.

The Faculty at IIM-A have been drawn from diverse backgrounds. Research and development have been one of the key areas of their work. That is why IIM-A has a separate wing working solely on case studies. A lot of these cases may be downloaded from the website itself. A lot of these cases and other inputs provided by faculty over consulting assignments have had a deep impact on the business world in India. Policymakers have repeatedly taken inputs from the IIM-A think tank. The institute is also a beacon for several national-level training programmes. There have been such programmes for government officers as well as for employees of private organizations. IIM-A’s incredible alumni pool has often been roped in for several such assignments. The alumni are now spread worldwide managing some of the top firms. At present top organizations such as TCS, Master Card, Make My Trip, New Development Bank, Vedanta, Axis Bank, Dell, EXL, NTPC, Edelweiss, Mphasis, IIFL, DBS Bank, IOCL, CII, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, BASIX and Amnesty International are headed by IIM-A alumni. In addition, stars in the field of arts, academics, literature, journalism, government, politics and sports hail from this place. 

The institute prides itself on the several national events conducted annually at the campus. They all have their own different purposes. Examples of the same are- Confluence, Chaos, Insight and ConneXions. There are also several social initiatives run by IIM-A. Lately, an incubation centre has also been set up to support budding entrepreneurs. IIM-A has also had its run with Bollywood, with the campus featured heavily in the movie - 2 States- shot mostly here.
