The thoughts of an IIMer

What exclusive pieces of infrastructure does your college provide? Being an IIM, we've got the best infrastructure among all the six new IIMs. Fully equipped and Hi-tech computer labs, classrooms with sound systems, projectors and display screens installed, it's all here. Our library is new but there is no dearth of books here, over and above that we've got an online databank filled with books ready to be read at our disposal. Multiple companies have offered their resources databases, which are available for the students to use year round. What is being done by your college to enhance corporate exposure? An Industry Interactions Committee has been formed with the task of enhancing the corporate exposure of the college. The members of the committee are trained professionals coming from MNC. They've used their knowledge and experience to drive excellence in the exposure. Many eminent speakers have visited our college including professors and government officials. Professionals from organizations like NABARD and Aditya Birla group have also graced us with their presence. How could your college life be more happening? We are on the outskirts of the city, this remains as the only limiting factor, however, with time the development will shift towards the campus. What placement offer did you receive on your Campus? Being the first batch we haven't had our placements yet, however, during the summers students received multiple offers from MNCs. The average stipend grew to INR 75,000 with an average of INR 25,000. What more did you expect from your college hostels? I don't think the facilities we've been provided with is available to anyone else. The hostels are more than what was expected. And yet since we are a student driven institute we are putting in our efforts to bring out an even better face. Who were some exceptional professors in your college & why? We've had professors who've been on the board of ICAI, professors involved in multiple government projects and even some big names from the consultancies come up here. They have been industry pioneers and have gone beyond teaching. The style of teaching here is unconventional, we don't use standard methodologies but develop our own and will set a trend here. How would you summarize the student crowd in your college? You've got to meet them to believe my statements. We have people with more than 4 years of experience and then we've also got freshers. Students know ins and out of the systems, you don't need to teach them IT, they've already played with all the tools. Come what we've got solutions to all the problems be it internet or finance, you'll find someone who will help you anyways. In what terms is your college affordable? The fee is standard for any IIM but there are loans available from banks at very low-interest rates and no collateral.

Our IIM classes are being conducted in SIT campus. Our mentor IIM Indore has done much to provide enough facilities for us. Classes are being conducted in full air-conditioned rooms and the library is open from early morning to the late night where many of us spend our whole day studying. Sambalpur located in the industrial belt region we usually have interactions with the industrial people regularly . Since the start of IIM Sambalpur, we have organized many events to make the college life more lively. Summer placements from our college are 100% and with more exposure to the outer world, there will be more chances of bringing companies for placements. The hostel provides us a room sufficiently big enough with single accommodation. Apart from the food that we get everything else is good. Improvement in the quality of the food is what every student desire of. Prof. Pawan Kumar Singh faculty from IIM Indore is one of the exceptional professors in our college with a lot of achievements under his name. Apart from PK Singh, V.K. Gupta is another exceptional professor who is currently a member of Indian Accounting Standard Board. We have a diverse batch, Students from all over India with a mix of freshers and experience students even in a small batch size of 48.

IIM Sambalpur started in 2015, accommodating only its second batch right now, but going with a good pace in becoming one of India's best business schools, that too with a proved Brand IIM. We have a temporary campus right now but this campus is still beautifully placed with lots of greenery and other scenic beauties. Academics are top notch with dignified faculties, AC library, and classrooms. We also have sports and gymnasium facilities along with a cafeteria.

About College:

The Indian Institute of Management in Sambalpur was established in 2015, making it the youngest and the northernmost within the fraternity. And that is why the IIM- Sambalpur in Odisha along with half a dozen other IIMs are popularly termed as the ‘Baby IIMs’. After about a dozen IIMs had already been opened, the Ministry of Human Resource and Development decided that it was time to add to the tally. So, in the twelfth five-year plan seven new IIMs were established. This list includes- Amritsar, Bodh Gaya, Jammu, Sirmaur, Nagpur, Sambalpur, and Visakhapatnam. Due to them being new to the industry, they were all assigned a mentor among the original IIMs. 

The IIM- Sambalpur is being mentored by the IIM- Indore. It is presently being run within the campus of another university within the same city, but will soon move to its own permanent 237- acre campus. The flagship 2- year PGP is the only course that is run at the institute now. Several elective and specialization options are possible alongside. Plans are afoot to launch executive and doctoral programmes. For working professionals, the PGPX will soon be launched, as will the FPM which will be the fellowship programme. A fellowship can also be pursued by working professionals, titled EFPM. The library is one of the largest within the region, having a huge collection of books, academic journals, periodicals as well as digital access to international research. The faculty here is also involved in the case- writing and getting their works published in recognized journals. Many are regular speakers at national or international conferences. Even the Board of Governors at IIM- Sambalpur has been convened to get the best of insights on academic and industry- research matters. There is a good mix of academicians, government officers, and industry representatives. 

Admissions to IIM- Sambalpur as well as the other newer IIMs, is through a common process. First of all, the CAT exam is mandatory, from where students are shortlisted for a second round. Since now there are so many IIMs, a common realization emerged that it is not possible to sit for separate interviews or other stages for so many institutes. In addition, students also apply in general to other Non-IIM private as well as government institutes. This gets all the more difficult for working professionals. That is why the second round for all the new as well as ‘Baby IIMs’ is done through the Common Admission Process (CAP). Students are shortlisted jointly for this entire process, after which each individual college submits its selection list depending on its own criteria. The exact rules regarding the CAP change frequently. Earlier, a rule existed where those shortlisted for the older seven IIMs (including Shillong), need not appear for the CAP. But that has been done away with now. In addition, some baby IIMs have also given calls to some who did not make the grade for the CAP. But generally, a common process eases operations and reduces student hassles in a big way. 

Unlike the original six IIMs, the one at Sambalpur never had much of a diversity issue. This is because, by the time the institute started taking its first few batches, this thinking had already emerged, so the admissions were done with this being kept in mind. Even the regional diversity is fairly high, with students recruited from all over India, and then placed at different places. This enables a strong nation-wide or even international alumni link. The CAT is mandatory like at the other IIMs, followed by an interview and usually a WAT (Written Ability Test). Overseas candidates need to go via the GMAT route. 

The student community is getting quite active at IIM- Sambalpur, with several clubs and committees being formed here. There are clubs for both academic as well as non- academic affairs. The clubs are named as Bears n Bulls, E- Cell, Emporia, Glossarium, HRidaya, Sigmato and Kalakriti for finance, entrepreneurship, marketing, social media, HR, operations and cultural affairs respectively. The campus also prides itself on its digital preparedness, with most resources digitized. Beyond the necessary fun and games, there are also several committees looking after specific roles. The committee names are self- explanatory which are- Placements, Sports, IT, PR, International Relations, Mess, Alumni Relations, Library, and Anti-ragging. Different faculty members are also associated with several committees. 

The institute may not be too old, but it has already created a vibrant alumni network. The alumni committee is in constant touch with the past students, improving the connect on a constant basis. This is even rubbing off on the present students. Such activities have helped generate top-notch placements for the present batches. Some of the recent years’ recruiters include- Deloitte, Accenture, VLCC, Byju’s, Infosys, Patanjali, Tata Motors, Tech Mahindra, SBI, Tata Trusts, L&T Infotech, Cognizant, Accenture, HDFC Bank, Birla Sun Life, Muthoot Fincorp, Motilal Oswal, Birla Sun Life & Mapro.
