owever taxing it might be on you, the competitive environment doesn’t bog you down, rather it pushes you to achieve more than your capabilities and dream bigger. Your fellow students are always willing to help you in whatever way possible. I’ve been privilged to be in the company of some really talented people from all walks of life, singers, dancers, fluitists, painters, dabaters, sportsmen, gamers, photographers, yoga teachers, beatboxers..the list goes on. The highlight during our first trimester together has definitely been the bond among students created by Camaraderie, the inter-section wars. It had slogans, viral facebook posts, all night dance practice sessions, informants in the opposing camp, frentic quizzing and what not, but there was never any bad blood. I was particularly lucky to have been a part of Alumni Committee at IIM Lucknow. The interactions I’ve had over our esteemed alumni have certainly been thought provoking. What surprised me most was their zeal to learn from students, being such stalwarts of the industry themselves. They are so fond of thier professors that every time an alum comes on campus he or she doesn’t leave without meeting their favourite profs. Their humility is truly awe-inspiring.

Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow (IIM - L) has two campuses, one in Lucknow and the other in Noida. The Noida campus is still under development, and has been marked out primarily for executive education The Lucknow campus is spread over acres and acres of land, and is lush green from the inside. The infrastructure is very good as well. There are hostels for both boys and girls. The campus has one of the best conference halls in the country. It has a well-equipped library and facilities for sports and recreation for students. The campus is completely WiFi enabled. The majority of the crowd, as one would expect, comes from an engineering background. IIM Lucknow has consistently had 100% placements in the past few years. IM Lucknow is often ranked as the fourth best B-School in India, and major credit for this goes to the faculty. The professors are from a rich academic background, with affiliations with top schools like Harvard, Stanford, and MIT.

The experience with IIM Lucknow is very exciting as well as knowledge booster. The infrastructure of the college is very beautiful. In the evening we get a chance to play football ball which is very good. College hostel is superb with all facilities like WiFi, TV, A/c and having a nice canteen for the students and lecturers. Food at canteen is simply delicious and hygienic. All the professors are very friendly and down to earth. While giving classes they try to involve each of us to make the session interactive. The classes attended at IIM Lucknow is the lifetime experience for me.

I had been studying in this college from the past 1 year and I had a very good experience inside the campus, including the hostel. The college life is very good, with the buzz around the campus at any time of the day. There are very good placements also for the batch before us and it looks positive for us also.

Enriching learning exposure with amazing faculty

Absolutely an incomparable learning experience without leaving your job. The classroom interactions were so great that both students and faculty took away learnings from the interactions. The rigour of the course was similar to the 2 year PGP program at the Lucknow campus. Best case studies were chosen to impart the subject learnings providing a practical exposure to management. There are no placement opportunities as the course is meant to be for working managers. Students will have to develop skills for the required positions that they aspire to attain. The curriculum is rewarding and learning and equips the students with the right tools, skill sets, attitude and commitment to move up the corporate ladder after this course.

Hell you would want to be in

IIM Lucknow is one of the top b-schools in India. Isn't it an obvious statement? Rather than stating such obvious facts that can be googled around, I would like to talk about the culture and the opportunities you get at IIM-L. Hel(L), as its name suggests, is known for its rigour and the curriculum is very demanding. I cannot guarantee if the school prepares you to be an expert in any stream because this aspect depends on an individual's own effort and how sincere and serious is one about the curriculum. But Hel(L), within first four months, definitely train you how to be a manager, how to manage your time, how to stretch your time to get things done within the deadline etc. The amount of confidence that you built in about yourself through the various club, committee activities is immense. More than these extra-curricular activities and academics peer learning and building contacts are very important. Hel(L) provides lots of opportunities and stages for the same. Coming to the most important aspect one looks for in choosing a b-school, "Placements", IIM-Lucknow is known for creating records in every year of placements. Though it is perceived as a marketing campus, there is a lot of diverse roles ranging offered. Rest should be experienced.

At IIM Lucknow students not only avail good academic infrastructure but also amazing recreational facilities for sports and other extracurricular activities. The college gives an opportunity to interact with the industry experts and work on multiple live projects. The college life is such that with academic rigour and personal commitments, you learn time management very well and learn many new things with each step. You learn from your peers, faculty, and alumni through various opportunities offered by college events. The placements are conducted very well, in a structured manner with utmost importance to every student's choice. The hotel facilities are comparable with other MBA colleges and student requirements are kept in mind.

The faculties here in the college is undoubtedly one of the best in the country. The infrastructure as in classrooms and hostels can be a little better but that gets complemented by the tasty food served in the mess! The regular industry interaction with the industry stalwarts is a cherry on the cake.

There is a continuous industry exposure with guest lectures and workshops conducted on regular basis. We have our alumni from the industry visiting us periodically to share their insights and experiences. Placements are always given due importance and are carried out with a lot of hard work involved. The whole junior and senior and junior batch comes together for the placement process. The campus infrastructure is in place and always up-to-date, keeping in mind the student and faculty requirements. The food provision at mess is appreciated across all IIM campuses. Equal importance is given to pursuing extra curricular activities along with academics.

The scenic beauty of the college is great and since it's outside the city it has clean air and makes it an awesome place to live. As it is one of the premiers IIMs the alumni forms a great part and makes the college even more renowned. The hostels had the adequate supply of everything and the peer group are great.

Want to challenge your limits ? Want to beat your expectations every day ? If yes, welcome to the IIM Lucknow, which is called Hell thanks to the rigorous academic first year here. The infrastructure, faculties, peer group everything just makes you grow as a person every single minute of the day and yes 7 days a week as there are no weekends here. Where else will you find students happily chasing deadlines with 3 hours of sleep every day ?

1. IIML has world class faculty with industry experience. 2. Almost all the companies visit campus for industry interaction and alumni visits are also organised to give the insights and knowledge to the students. 3. Life at IIML covers academics, extracurricular activities, company competitions etc which gives to the students to explore every aspect. 4. Hostels have individual rooms with all the facilities required by the student. 5. Diversity at IIML is one of the most important aspects which helps students to learn from their peer groups. 6. IIML is overall package to do MBA and it prepares its students to give their best after two years in whatever field they choose to work.

IIM Lucknow - a must journey

As you enter IIM Lucknow you experience that rich environment, the buildings give you that feeling of 'big thing'. The college has all the facility that an MBA student would aspire for from a college, not only the awesome classroom but recreational facilities of all sort. The college does hold multiple talks with the industry experts but score less compared to college situated in Mumbai or Gurgaon due to location, multiple live projects on your own can helo this. The college life is awesome because of the pace at which things happen, this not only makes you do things which are expected but somehow you learn to do more, which you won't do in peaceful structure. You learn much more about yourself, your strength and weakness. The placements received are from all the big names that you can think of. The college provides one sitter hostel with all the facilities of cleaners n all. The student crowd is from all sections of society, from all kind of prior experience making it a learning experience. the college is affordable in terms of relative to other colleges and return that you would generate.

The infrastructure at IIML is one of the best i have seen with focus on enhancing each and every aspect of a student, be it on the academic front or the extra curricular front. The faculty here try and impart learning by giving real time and related industry examples.

My Experience

Batch of 2013 | PGPM
If you are an aspirant for a MBA program and reading this article then I won’t say that IIML is the best place to be in, for your criteria of best may not coincide with mines. But yes if you are looking for a B-school which gives you value addition in terms of Knowledge, Co-curricular and Extra-Curricular activities, then this is the place to be in. We all at IIML are proud of a community which excels in helping each other as and when we need it (can any other institute boast of this.) A short span of time and we are already right behind the leader to snatch that position from him in the rankings of B-school. IIML IS THE PLACE TO BE IN.

Had a great experience, not just study wise, but also in terms of overall personality development. The interaction with the batch mates were really useful. People from different fields had come in. The infrastructure was world class. Academic rigor was also good though only a handful of professors were able to grab the students' attention

Many a times working professionals couldn't live their dreams of studying in IIM's for 2 years because of the opportunity cost that is attached wit their job. Thus, they take upto to Executive MBA and trust me I enjoyed this course a lot. The weekly virtual classes helped me learn while working. Also, it doesn't hinder your work thus it becomes really very useful and handy to take up this program.

IIML has a great alumni network. This is the 4rth oldest IIM and 27 batches of managers have graduated out of its gates most of whom are now the decision makers in big corporate houses. Alumni strength is not only decided by how old the institute is but also by the collective cohesiveness among the alumni and the current students and I wish to say out loud that we excel in this department. Having tie-ups with 30 B schools around the globe, it is one of the finest exchange programs in India. There are a lot of Industry interactions going on anytime in the campus through corporate competitions, guest lectures, business conclaves and live case studies.IIM Lucknow is often ranked as the fourth best B School in India, and major credit for this goes to the faculty. The professors are from a rich academic background, with affiliations with top schools like Harvard, Stanford and MIT. The pedagogy is mainly case-study based. There is a 10:1 student teacher ratio. Courses are redesigned every year with feedback from industry.

Academics are the prime focus of the institute; its culture revolves around facilitating it. PGP course has balance of compulsory & elective courses & code-able & tacit knowledge. It tries to bring together intellects from different backgrounds & facilitate mixing of knowledge & approaches. Atmosphere is highly competitive, moderated by 100% placement that the institute achieves comfortably. Industry interaction is limited - probably an area which needs improvement.

The college provides an conducive platform for the overall development of the student by giving exposure to the future aspects of the business. This college helped me to harness the entrepreneur in me. The students are put in the steering wheel for running the institution which is a great opportunity for overall development.
