IIMB is a very good college for management, especially for marketing, consulting and operations. The finance faculty and courses could be improved. The college infrastructure is excellent, with all amenities and very well maintained hostels. The faculty is also very experienced and the best in their fields. Another factor which really works in its favour is the diversity in the batch. People are from different backgrounds and the average workex is also high, leading to very fruitful class discussions.

Infrastructure is very good. Bangalore is beautiful city, and campus is equally beautiful. Activities are student driven, and it helps a lot for students to grow. Faculty is experienced, and hostel facilities are also very good. All in all, campus provides everything a student needs.

Two years at IIMB in a nutshell

Every time I pull through the resplendent gates of IIM Bangalore, surrounded by grey stone walls that almost harbor an oasis inside, a rush of elation courses through me. This feels better than home. I attribute that feeling largely to the environment and the vibrant, friendly, everyone-knows-everyone culture that has been omnipotent since the institute's inception in the early 70's. It's widely acknowledged that the Indian Institutes of Management are amongst the sternest tests of energy and resolve that a person can be subjected to - with sleepless nights and deadlines tighter than a shoelace knot. However, there is another side to IIM Bangalore that people don't talk about. The lifetime bonds you make with your batchmates over the course of nights toiling over a project, or over an Omelette Roll Maggi at 4 AM at Park n Eat, the opportunities to travel - exchange and international courses, and the pranks played on hostel wingmates. IIMB is also home to two of the biggest fests in the country - Unmaad and Vista, where people all over the country battle for glory. The first two terms are a hectic rush due to the added pressure of club selections, getting to know your batchmates, adjusting to a new college life and preparing for summer placements, apart from the regular academic load. Once this eases off, parties start sprouting up, especially the famous L Square parties that go on till morning. Like any other A-lister college, professors are industry stalwarts and have a wealth of experience - some are even referred to as gods. But what sets the IIMB professors apart from the others is their focus on sustained studying through the term with a mix of quizzes, class participation, active involvements in projects, frequently bringing external speakers for lectures - one is expected to study hard early on, right until the end of the term. On the infrastructure front, the newly built New Classroom Block is a marvel of high technology and comfort. The hostels are divided into two kinds - the Old Block and the New Block, both as different as chalk and cheese. The Old block is in the style of a central courtyard with rooms in a closed square, with each room opening to an open air corridor. The New block has a row of rooms that face each other and have a closed hallway, however, the rooms are bigger and have a personal balcony. I took a decision to experience both kinds of rooms, and 6 months after my graduation, I miss the old rooms more and the seniors who were always a knock away. IIM Bangalore is an experience that I hope people reading this review would get to experience someday because it's magical.

Knowledge within your Grasp

By pursuing MBA, I developed a holistic view of the world around me; my goals both professional and personal became clear to me. The thought process though changed a bit, but I achieved what I wanted to achieve. I wanted to accelerate my growth in an operations company, and it is what I am currently pursuing. Enjoyed both the academic and non-academic life at the campus: be it the rigorous assignments, class discussions, group work, in-class quizzes, competitions or lazy time spent dreaming about the future, informal group discussions, late nights spent sitting or eating out with friends.

Faculty is really good. Sports facilities are good. Swimming pool is missing. The clubs on campus give students wonderful exposure. The cultural activities in the college are extremely good. Placements are good, but I feel it can improve a little bit as well.

General Information

About College: Just like fellow IIMs- Ahmedabad and Kolkata in particular- the one in Bengaluru (erstwhile Bangalore) occupies a place of massive respect among people of India. This was the third IIM to be built in 1973 as the massive popularity of the first two IIMs confirmed the need for one more. The then Prime Minister of India, Smt. Indira Gandhi inaugurated the institute. Initially, it used the complex of the St. Joseph’s College of Commerce, before relocating to its present location in the south of the city. It now has a 100-acre campus. The sprawling academic block was designed by Pritzker Prize (architects’ Nobel) winning architect B.V. Doshi. Leading academicians T.A. Paid and N.S. Ramaswamy played a major role in the establishment of the academic standards here. The courses offered at IIM-B include the flagship 2-year PGP, but also the one-year EPGP for industry professionals, a doctoral programme and several short-term and online certifications. Student exchange programmes have been inked with some of the leading academic institutions world over such as University of Cologne and the National University of Singapore. IIM-B also prides itself on its Centres of Excellence. They operate in different fields such as Risk Management, Corporate Governance, Indo-Japan Study, IT Management, Entrepreneurial Learning, Supply Chain Management and Teaching. Bengaluru being the Silicon Valley of India, no wonder the IIM here is one of the leading adopters of tech into educations. The use of MOOCs is widespread. This year, IIM-B will be hosting the sixth edition of the Pan-IIM World Management Conference. Like a lot of the legacy IIMs, this institute too mentors several of the younger ones. Under its wing lie the mentorship of Trichy and Visakhapatnam.IIM-B was earlier, like several of the other IIMs notorious for its relative low levels of diversity among the student pool. 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 Bengaluru 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. In 2018, IIM-B became the first of its kind to award the MBA degree as approved by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD). The Indian Institute of Management in Kolkata has featured prominently in multiple international institutional rankings. The Financial Times London has featured IIM-B C at 19th best in the world. The highly prestigious QS Global Rankings meanwhile assigned IIM-C as 9th best in the Asia-Pacific region. The NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) which is a government body has placed it 2nd nationwide in the management category. In addition, several national publications such as Business Today and Outlook have allotted the top few ranks overall. One of the reasons for the high rankings is the top- notch faculty here, recruited from both academia and industry.The institute is like the other top IIMs renowned for its excellent placements track record. Top recruiters from different fields regularly visit the institute and pick up students en masse. And that is why getting a seat here is considered tougher than a place at any of the Ivy League colleges in USA even. Unless one gets in the top 1 percentile of the CAT exam, there are few chances of getting a call in the general category. In addition, sectional scores and past records are also scrutinized. Post the shortlisting based on CAT, there is the equally rigorous WAT-PI process. Like several of the other IIMs, Bengaluru too has given up on the GD (Group Discussion) section and replaced with the WAT (Written Ability Test). This is because managers of the future need to hone their writing skills while the GD was not providing ample scope to judge from a crowd. Due to such rigorous selection procedure, IIM-B has seen several top business leaders pass through its gates. Organizations such as Reliance Retail, Career Launcher, Saatchi & Saatchi, Perfetti Can Melle and ISRO are led at present by IIM-B alumni. In addition, several top players in politics, government, literature, social work and academics have emerged out of here. Like most great institutions, the Indian Institute of Management in Bengaluru too prides itself on its flagship annual events. They have much diversity such as Unmaad being a cultural fest while Eximius is for entrepreneurship. Vista is an international business summit and Yamini is a festival purely for music. There is also an annual leadership conclave titled IIMBUE. IIM-B has also had its brush with Bollywood, with the campus featured heavily in the movie – 3 Idiots- shot mostly here.
