College Infrastructure
Academic block is well maintained, with centralised air conditioning. Has a mic and speaker for teacher to be clearly audible to students. There exist multiple chill-out spots for students, most loved one being the Jetty. There is a separate 3-star accommodation to cater to dignitaries, and parents visiting students.
Academics
A-rated faculty, with focus on industry based learning. Case solving in classes with peers offers a strong learning advantage via multiple perspectives offered by people across various industries and career paths.
Placements
Almost all top companies visit the campus and hire in strong numbers. Average package offered is ~25LPA. Placement is rigorous but offers equal returns for the students. The most prominent industries are Consulting, IT and General Management.
Value-for-money
Cost - 23.5LPA for two years. This is worth considering the brand value of IIM Calcutta, as one of the top 3 MBA institutes in the country.
Campus Life
Great experience. Parties are crazy LITT. There's a good male:female ratio, and co-ed hostels. You'll have one of the best days and the craziest parties you've ever known here. Alcohol flows, and people here do know how to throw a party!

College Infrastructure
One of the hostel has great infrastructure, but the old hostels have really poor infrastructure. The academic block is really good. Wifi is really poor, however LAN is good with intermittent disturbances.
Academics
Amazing professors with great knowledge. Quality of training is also top notch. Most of the subjects are case based, real life cases which is thoroughly analysed in the class. The rigour makes you ready for the corporate.
Placements
Great placements, at par with the best colleges. All the big name companies including best consulting firms MBB, big 4 and top investment banks like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan visit the campus. Ensures 100% placements.
Value-for-money
High fees, but worth it looking at the placements and quality of education. Also, one of the very important parameter is the alumni network that we get access to, which is of immense help after graduating.
Campus Life
Scenic campus, with great sports culture and other extracurricular opportunities. Lots of opportunities other than just academics. You can pursue your hobbies, hone your skills and also get involved in several clubs to get a holistic experience.

College Infrastructure
Due to COVID we haven't really used much of the infrastructure yet, as we've been having online classes. However, the hostels and mess can be upgraded to have better facilities, in my opinion, as they are pretty outdated.
Academics
The professors are very knowledgeable and have good idea about the subject matter. There have been some hiccups due to the online mode of teaching but the professors have been very patient and approachable with all our doubts.
Placements
The placements have had an amazing track record over time, even after COVID hit. Our batch had a good summer placements and then our seniors batch was also 100% placed with good packages so that is a good thing
Value-for-money
I feel the tuition fees of 23 lakhs per annum are a bit exorbitant considering we haven't even had the complete MBA experience and everything has been online so far. We haven't even seen the classrooms yet.
Campus Life
Campus life in a normal year would've been great, but given COVID it has been pretty restrictive and not up to the normal levels. That said, the campus itself is very beautiful and definitely great to live in.
Anything Else
No

You don't survive at Joka, but you live here. One usually comes here keeping only placement in mind but towards the end, of course, learns a lot about life. With largest alumni base among all IIMs and being known as finance campus of India, this is the best place if you want to enjoy the life while learning management. Life is not all about slogging here, it involves many more things which you may not get in other premier IIMs which are more focused towards endless slogging. Enter here and you will never regret.

IIM-C is the best institute of India. Despite there's no college life but the veteran faculties and education curriculum make it the best college of INDIA. The 2 years spent here were full of learning and fun. The teachings, extracurricular activities, sports facilities, and events gave an exposure that prepared and nurtured me for my further life . Indeed the lessons and relations I earned from this second home can never be forgotten.

The campus of IIM C, located outside the city has seven lakes inside of it, boasting some unique facilities like Financial Laboratory, Fully air conditioned and well-equipped classes, an open-air theater & Fully AC auditorium. The campus offers a great deal of learning through interaction with different sets of people and a great practical way of teaching. though I believe the college hostels can be made better, the campus authorities are doing the right work to build new hostels and make the campus life more comfortable and conducive.

Excellent infrastructure with lush green surroundings. The lakes and greenery surround the magnificent library, classrooms, admin block, hostels and EDP blocks. Extremely capable and scholarly faculty in all domains especially finance, statistics, operations, marketing and behavioural sciences. We enjoyed and made lifelong friendships. The fun and joy of spending those two years together, while also working hard, prepared us for the life ahead and continue today. We stepped into our professional lives with our first jobs in hand on the campus and with dreams in our eyes and grand visions in our minds .

IIM Calcutta gets a plethora of companies on campus during placements, both summers as well as finals. There are from all sectors of business like Financial Services, PE funds, Management Consultancy, IT Consultancy, FMCG companies, Consumer Durable Companies, E-Commerce companies, Media & Entertainment companies, etc. Usually, the entire batch gets placed through placements. IIM Calcutta boasts of a very strong alumni network across the corporate world. A unique feature about IIM Calcutta is that each and every person retains his or her personality. Professors treat students as their equals, and this fosters a great spirit out of which overall development is guaranteed.The structure of the course is very well designed so as to make learning a pleasure. Students are treated as equals by professors and encouraged to actively participate in lectures. There are a number of case-studies that students are involved in throughout the course.Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta (IIM-C) has an extremely well-equipped library, and it has good facilities for students who are interested in sports as well. There are four hostels which provide single-occupancy accommodation for all students. Each hostel has its own coffee shop, canteen, and photocopiers. The campus is fully WiFi enabled.

The best management college in the country without a doubt. IIM Calcutta believes in the philosophy of treating adults like adults and gives them freedom from running the campus to develop equally in academics as well as infy other opportunities available. Every time there is something or other exciting going on in the campus that you never really experience the grueling environment of a B school. At least a wholesome experience for me and my friends. Life is fun here. Really fun.

It would be unfair of me to comment on the faculty here. If you are active socially, you would already know the geniuses that teach here. I would put more words on Joka as an experience. The hallowed portals of Joka are for anyone and everyone. For it does not discriminate, it does not eliminate. It only motivates one to find its true calling. It does not matter how many expectations you carry. It certainly does not matter what your perception of an MBA college is. Joka changes you in a way that is beyond belief.

IIM Calcutta was the first time I would be living in a hostel. I was looking forward to a roller coaster of a time. But all that did not happen. It was about average. Food sucked. Hostel was too far away. And the academic rig-our was killing. Everybody kept talking of a camaraderie that I was yet to experience. And then I met this bunch of people, who made this entire rig-our seem distant. I started having a great time. The pressure was still there but somehow it was more tolerable than before. Seniors and people who passed out 10 years back showed us warmth as if the lived in the room next door. We were slowly inherited into the tribe. And once that happened life here changed forever. Now that I look back it seems that I have been living here forever, and I certainly don’t want to go anywhere else. Ever. You cannot figure IIM Calcutta till you come and live here. You can hear stories but it’s not the same. You have to let Joka be a part of your being and take away your soul. And once you have done that you’ll love this place forever. Wherever you go the Joka Tribe will go with you. I know this because it’s happened to me. I am completely overwhelmed by the magic of this place. I cannot describe the feeling but I know it will stay with me forever.

About IIM Calcutta- 1) It gives you the freedom and support to understand yourself- lot of student run activities and competitions which are all voluntary in nature. Tests your limits and puts you under pressure. 2) Network and exposure- inter hostel competitions and activities forge strong bonds than just group discussions in library. The campus is visited by guest faculties, imminent personalities and premium companies to build student interact ions and other activities.

The most striking thing about this college is its culture. "We at Joka leave no one behind"- this is the motto that drives everyone and makes them help each other. Even though we have very hectic schedules, we will always suceed to find time for some fun. If you are looking for a place where you can be taught by best faculty and at the same time experience a great culture then IIM Joka is the place for you
