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.

Student driven, awesome experience

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.

The Place to B!

Posted on 24 Oct' 15 by Dipayan Sinha

Right from its admission procedure, IIM-B is unique in the way that it conducts itself. It is one of the very few Indian B-schools that emulates the American style of admitting students and requires them to submit an SOP with a couple of LORs, and strictly demands that all applications be paperless. Once you are a part of the B'life, a whole new world awaits you - from world-class sports facilities to internationally-recognised fests. The quality of teaching and the academic infrastructure that IIM-B boasts of have been showcased time and again in the various rankings that renowned agencies come out with. Hostel life at B is not something that you would want to miss. There are clubs to accommodate people with any form of talent or passion or even interest. All in all, if the campus is one that 'Mr Perfectionist' Amir Khan was comfortable shooting in for '3 Idiots', then not many things there need improvement. Though I do not intend to sound haughty, but if you do get a chance to grace the lush-green campus on Bannerghatta Road for the prestigious 2-year PGP course, please do not let it go!

Indian Institute of Management Bangalore is a good college for MBA, especially for marketing, operations and consulting. For finance, it is not that good. There are ample opportunities and the amenities are also good. Hostels are also well maintained.

The Place to B (predictably) :)

IIMB's definitely one of the best B-schools in India with a great (flexible) curriculum, renowned faculty (with prior or live experience with industry) and a robust infrastructure to support a great campus life :) The campus is largely student run - from Placements to Hostel to Festivals and even coordination with city-wide events like Marathons, etc. Schedules and academic curriculum are provided well in advance of the initiation of the term and are diligently adhered to, thanks to the PGP office - making life highly structured from that perspective.

PGDM at IIMs: not relevant for freshers

The course adds little value to freshers in terms of knowledge and education. Peer group is disappointing. Returns from placements does not justify cost of tuition. Professors are too caught up with their personal consulting work or projects and have little interaction with students. Exchange program is great though.

The place to 'B', and it is for a reason

1. I am a staunch believer of an institute is as good as its professors are. The professors on an average are good. I will say 60% are excellent profs. 2. A good chunk of the students are intelligent, smart and know how to put 2 and 2 together. They bring out the best in you. (You improve your game by playing with people who are smarter than you) 3. The professors in Marketing and Operations are fairly good. 4. Summer placements are good. There is some fight for the last 40-50 students, as is the case with every institute, but they do get placed. I am yet to sit for finals, so will update the final placement scenario once I am done.
