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

Posted on 23 Aug' 16 by Abhishek Kumar

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.
