IIM Kozhikode is the best place to be in for a PGP course. Situated on hilltop amidst the beautiful Kerala, it's amazing. But its not just the place and the infrastructure, the place has an elegant and comforting environment, with very cosy hostels and classrooms in a beautiful campus. Industry exposure is slightly less, the trade-off for being inside the beauty, but it is at par with most colleges of the league. The professors are knowledgeable, and there is a lot to learn from them and it needs a mutual effort to do so. You get to study some unique subjects like Social Transformation of India, which is life changing. The crowd is talented and balanced with people of all kinds, backgrounds and regions. The fee is a bit high, but worth it all. One great place to be definitely, for the best 2 years of your life.

Imagine waking up in the middle of the clouds, going to the class filled with people of varied experience, demographics, and psycho-graphics, being taught by professors who not only have extensive teaching experience but also have ample industry experience to give you live examples during their lectures. When you come back to the rooms after the classes you have the group as well as individual assignments that test your knowledge and team work as well. The layout of the campus has been done in such a way that you may not need to join the gym to maintain your health, attending regular classes will help you in a way that gym won't be able to match up to.

Learning management lessons in a resort - Life at IIMK

IIM Kozhikode is known among the best management institutes in the country for its picturesque setting, nestled in the hills of Kunnamangalam in Kozhikode district of Kerala. That is one of the reasons it is called a 'resort' among the IIMs in the country. It has the distinction of setting up the first business museum in India. The beautiful scenery of Kerala can be enjoyed from almost everywhere in the Kampus (Kampus - for campus in IIMK lingo), be it the academic blocks, the verandas, the hostels, the mess and also from the library. There is an Industry Interaction Cell (IIC) which makes sure that the students get relevant corporate exposure by bringing in subject experts and practitioners of different management fields. There is a Cultural Committee which make sure that every religious ceremonies and celebrations are taken place. The Sports Committee takes care of the infrastructure and equipment of all the sports - indoor and outdoor. There are leagues like Master of Indoors, Clash of Titans, KFL (Kozhikode Football League), KCL (Kozhikode Cricket League) and KBL (Kozhikode Basketball League), so it is a given that the sports enthusiasts would be occupied all year long. There is a CalMar Committee (Calicut Marathon Committee) which runs the Calicut Half Marathon, the largest student run Half-Marathon in India. The professors are subject experts in their field with the best qualifications. But like every institute all professors' teaching ability might not be the same even if their knowledge about their subjects would be excellent. The most famous professor in IIMK is undoubtedly Prof. A F Matthew who takes Social Transformation of India for the first years and Globalization and Culture (an elective subject which is difficult to obtain when subjects are being bid for in the second year). He is a maverick professor who could antagonize and also please students at the same time with his views about the society. The college hostels have sufficient amenities for the students and there are single and double-sharing rooms for males and females. The placements are one of the best in the country both during the summer internships and the final placements and the number of offers and the stipend or salary has been rising every year. Mostly known as an institute which provides very good Sales and Marketing roles, a number of companies come forward in the Management Consulting, Finance, Operations, IT and HR. The students represents one of the best academic population in the country as they have cracked the CAT. IIM Kozhikode take proactive steps for increasing its gender diversity and also the academic diversity. This diversity provides a variety in ideas which is very important in classroom discussions across various subjects because learning has a heavy component of peer learning at IIMK. The overall fee at IIMK for the two years of the flagship PGP programme would come upto 19 lakhs excluding the Student Exchange program (which may cost an additional 2 - 5 lakhs). Loans are available to all the students and there are scholarships for students who are meritorious as well as students who are from a financial background. All in all my learning at IIMK has been fulfilling and I hope you can take a wise decision for your future education using my review. Thank you.

Spread over about 111 acres of land, the Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode, is situated on two hillocks in the Kunnamangalam Area of the ancient city of Calicut in Kerala.

Managed by a dedicated regular administrative staff of 66, it is one of the most efficient Institutions in the country, which knows how to keep balance sheet green and keep all the stakeholders happy.

About College:

The Indian Institute of Management in Kozhikode was one of the original six, set-up in 1996. Over time, it has established its reputation as one of the best management institutes in the country. Initially, it was located within the premises of the NIT (National Institute of Technology) in the same city as a temporary home before moving out to its present hilltop location in 2003. It was inaugurated by the then President of India, Dr Abdul Kalam and the then state Chief Minister Mr A.K. Anthony. The design was done by famous architect Joseph Stein. The land area covers over a 100-acres overlooking the majestic Western Ghats. Rainwater harvesting is religious practised over here. The courses on offer here are the flagship 2-year PGP, EPGP for working professionals, doctoral and several short-term training programmes. The executive management programme can also be pursued from IIM-K’s Kochi campus which was established in 2012. The institute’s top leadership is one of the biggest strengths of IIM-K. It has people drawn from industry, academia and government. 

Like the other IIMs, Kozhikode to places a strong emphasis on international collaborations. But this one is particularly renowned for its MoU signed with the Yale University. As part of the Singh-Obama initiative, Yale opened a Center of Excellence for Academic Leadership within the premises of IIM-K. Some of the other significant institutes tied up with include Leeds University Business School, University of Queensland, Rouen Business School, Rheims Management School, Cyprus International Institute of Management, Leipzig Graduate School of Management, BEM- Bordeaux Management School, Bocconi University in Italy, Jonkoping International Business School in Sweden and Copenhagen Business School. Sourcing such ties get easier due to IIM-K’s massive reputation in the research area. A lot of projects are generated via the Small Grant Research Project. The IIM-K Journal is quite well-known among management education circles. Plus, several research newsletters are published. There is even a research blog to keep people updated. All this and a lot more contributed towards the IIM- Kozhikode’s ranks to swell up. It procured 6th tank in the management category at the NIRF (National Institutional Rankings Framework) which is a government body. Several national-level publications such as Business Today and Outlook have likewise placed IIM-K in the top ten. 

The Indian Institute of Management in Kozhikode was earlier, like several of the other IIMs notorious for its relative low levels of diversity among the student pool. The 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 Kozhikode 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 award MBA degrees and not the Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGPM) as was earlier the case. IIM-K has been one of the strongest adherents of the diversity formula. About 40% of the students here, known as Komrades, are women. 

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 some of the better-known colleges worldwide. Unless one gets in the top few percentiles of the CAT exam, there are few chances of receiving a call. 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, Kozhikode to 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-K has seen several top business leaders pass through its gates. Several top players in business, politics, government, literature, social work and academics have emerged out of here. 

There is a vibrant student life on campus at the Indian Institute of Management in Kozhikode. The Students’ Council is popularly known as the S-Con. The annual management fest is an ode to the geography of the land, titled Backwaters. IIM-K also organizes an inter-college cultural meet called Echoes and E-Summit, which is a meet for entrepreneurs. Other on-campus events held include Roobaroo, Nostalgia and Sangam. In collaboration with the Indian Institute of Management in Bengaluru, IIM-K organizes a sports meet called Sangram. Interest groups are also encouraged for separate hobbies such as photography, sports, music, dance and theatre as well as for academic fields like finance and marketing. There is even an on-campus functioning radio network.
