What is a better option for a HSC Commerce student - IIM Indores 5 year IPM or first a B.Comm. from a reputed college like Narsee Monjee Mumbai, and then an MBA from IIM Indore ?

Yashu Shrivastava 4th Dec, 2019

Hello Sharth

I would prefer you to prepare for 5 years integrated program from IIM Indore.As IIM has its own brand name.It provides the chance of making it to the IIM when the competition is extremely less. While almost 2.1 lakh students appeared for CAT in 2018, only about 18,000 appeared for the IPM test in the same year. Comparing it with the B.Tech graduates who pursue an MBA after engineering and spend 6 years in doing so, IPM saves the students’ one year as it gets completed within a matter of 5 years.

So its better to do IPM instead of doing (// from any reputed college.

Hope This Helps

Good Luck!



What is a better option for a student with Commerce stream in HSC- a 5 year IPM IIM Indore course or B.Com. from Narsee Monjee Mumbai (one of the best in the field) and then MBA from the older IIMs (ABC)? (assuming one can crack both)

Anonymous 6th Dec, 2019

Hello there. Hope you are doing good. I would like to tell you that IPM course from IIM Indore is a better option rather than doing B.Com (//B.Com) from NMIMS and doing MBA later on. If you decide to do MBA later on, there are certain parameters which you need to follow such as scoring exceptionally well in your entrance exams such as CAT,MAT,NMAT,XAT etc. maintaining a good aggregate score in your graduation, participating in extra curricular activities, exceptional achievements and sometimes a good work experience is also needed to build a strong profile so as to improve your chances in getting a call from a top business school.

However, if you get the chance to pursue IPM Programme offered by IIM Indore, it will help you in landing a good job with high package at a lesser period of time. You will be able to possess knowledge of undergraduation and postgraduation management courses from a top notch business school in India.

My suggestion for you is to consider IIM Indore as an option if you are getting the opportunity to study there.

I hope you found this answer helpful. Good luck for your future.


Are any other IIMs (the older ones) going to start a 5 year Integrated Program in Management (IPM) like the one IIM INDORE and IIM Rohtak have started?

Yashu Shrivastava 4th Dec, 2019

Hey Saarth

There's no official news of any other IIM that will going to start 5 years integrated program (BBA+MBA).As per now there are only two IIMs that provide opportunity to do 5 years integrated program(IIM Indore & IIM Rohtak).But if you prepare well you can easily crack it.

Hope This Helps

Good Luck!

The colleges accepting the CAT between 98-99 percentile:

I have 96% in 10th, 92.4% in 12th and 81.1% in Engineering. What percentile should I score in CAT to get calls from IIM Indore, Kozikhode and Trichy(NC- OBC Category)?

Sonali Sahu Student Expert 18th Nov, 2019


your score is good until now. You have did your best all the way. For CAT exam, IIM Consider 90% to get an admission.

For IIM Kozhikode:- 75% for CAT,Sectional Cutoff:- 65% for  10th:- 60% and for 12th 60%.

For IIM Trichy:- 78% for OBC-NC

for IIM Indore :- 80% for OBC-NC

for OBC category there will very less relaxation. But there is high competition but number of seats available is very less.

So you have to prepare accordingly and get an admission.

CAT exam score hold a 45-50 % weightage for admission at IIM Kozhikode. You have so good qualification in the rest. If you put more effort into it then you can get it.

Hope it helps!
