A great institute to study

Batch of 2018 | Post Graduate Programme in Management
Rajiv Gandhi Indian Institute of Management, Shillong is one of the premier management institutes of our country. It is situated in the beautiful city of Shillong in Meghalaya. It is a dream come true for people who love rainy season because here it rains almost every day. The campus is located in the residential area of Nyongthymmai spreading across 10acres of land. The infrastructure lacks a bit being situated in a small place but when you get to study in a picturesque city like Shillong you don't care about it much. The faculty is awesome coming from different educational backgrounds and with great achievements. The college life is very engrossing and exciting as you have various events in different fields happening all throughout the year. Once you reach here you'll probably never wanna leave.

No Delusions About Who We Are

One will hear about IIM Shillong, that it is nestled on a serene, wooded mountain slope and is regularly visited by wandering fog clouds and is therefore heavenly. But make no mistake, we are an Institute of Management Learning of the highest order, of exemplary rigour and in its very purest form. We face numerous challenges in terms of industry exposure, culture, food, infrastructure and availability of all the little perks that other B-school graduates across the country take for granted. But that leaves us students of IIM Shillong, better managers than most. Because after all, if one does not have problems, one does not need to manage.

The weather here is awesome and it soothes you along with the hectic MBA schedule. The faculty are a blend from places all over the country, not just North-Eastern teachers as is the common misconception among people. There are quite a number of external faculties as well both from industry and other MBA colleges.

College life is active with good interaction among batch-mates and seniors through several activities. Close interaction with faculty too. Several activities are student driven, allowing us to have close interaction with administration, corporate world giving a good exposure. Infrastructure is insufficient, as the campus is temporary and due to other challenges. Although that is made up with suitable technological interventions as far as possible. Faculty is good overall with some being brilliant and some not so much. Placements are good although location is sometimes a deterring factor. Sports and recreational infra is limited but activities are still well managed by committees, celebrating almost all major festivals, with regular cultural and sports events, with its very own Golf Cup. Corporate exposure is increasing with increasing alumni base. Also several initiatives taken to increase this exposure through interactive sessions. Hostels are supplied with suitable amenities. A strong culture of music exists in Shillong, with some big music festivals and one of the best places we have ever been to, in terms of both scenic beauty and culture.
