Academics
When it comes to the quality of teaching the professors are very experienced and some of them are from Institutes like IIM Ahemdabad and Calcutta. They do a lot of research and try to pass on their knowledge to the students in the best way possible.

College Infrastructure
The college infrastructure is great and well equipped Classrooms with smart boards and all the required facilities. We do have a basketball court and badminton courts. Sundays we are taken to Shillong golf course to play golf.In the new campus more sports facilities are being constructed.Hostel is like home with heaters provided during winters. They are very well maintained in terms of cleanliness. Mess foods is good too as the hostel committee looks after the menu and take complaints seriously
Academics
Im in my second year of my MBA course at IIM Shillong. The faculty is experienced and we have a well equipped library with Bloomberg terminals. Case based interactions take place in class with quality Harvard case studies. Visiting faculty are amazing and keep you updated with the latest industry developments. We are also upskills on software skilld and machine learning related courses. I think that makes us job-ready and confident when it comes to applying for jobs. Overall very happy :)
Placements
You just have to through the placement report to know about the placement. We do have 100% placements every year and the companies that come to campus are great! Average package was 18.75 and other details will be available in the placement report
Value-for-money
Since i went for the study abroad program the course costed me 10 lakhs per year. It was less for others who didnt opt for it. Yes i feel I'm getting my money's worth because I have learnt so much and travelled 5 countries in a span of 1 year!
Campus Life
Our campus truly lives up to its name of Campus in clouds. In Shillong you are at peace with nature and this kind of experience is hard to beat. Students are very busy throughout the year with events organized by clubs and committees! The location is very safe. Hospitals are nearby and we always have a doctor on campus!
Anything Else
I think everyone should experience MBA life. Its great you learn a lot and its hard to leave the place. Strangers become family and the people you meet and the amazing skill that each one possess gives you an enriching experience!

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.

IIM Shillong is the 7th IIM started in 2007. The current 9th Batch of PGP contains 180 participants from various domains. The average age of batch is 24 years. IIM Shillong has one of the most beautiful campuses in all of IIMs. IIM Shillong is also known for its focus on Sustainability along with development. All of the participants have to attend one week in the learning about the role of sustainability in the beginning of their journey at IIM. IIM Shillong is completely a student driven college, all the committees, and clubs which work in harmony with each other so that participants do not face any issue while their stay in the campus and all of them work hard to make IIM Shillong one of the best IIMs in the country. The small and diverse batch here in IIM Shillong gives you ample exposure in the domain participants wish to excel. This is a growing Institute so that is why it is open to new ideas which may be implemented on its way to success, unlike old institutes which have a conventional way the institute would exercise/function. Apart from these, IIM Shillong being one of the premier institutes in North East India, students have a reputation in the eyes of people.

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.

The most beautiful of all IIM's. The best at facilities and the best at every given thing. The winning atmosphere and the courage of fighting with failures. Looking at the standing mountains and seeking motivation from them to move ahead are some USP's of Shillong which make it go a long way.

It's an IIM that offers a well-structured, comprehensive experience that has a proper mixture of academic rigour, fun, corporate exposure and societal contribution. Regarding the academic part, most of the courses offered have a strong emphasis on systems perspective and hence the quant-focused nature of the curriculum. Apart from class room learning, IIM Shillong offers a great platform, The Podium - annual guest lecture series, for interaction with industry stalwarts. These interactions along with the live-projects offered by companies like IBM, Accenture gives a great corporate exposure. With a rapidly increasing number of offers per student and the compensation levels, the institute is progressing at a very high speed. The most unique part of the institute is the breathtaking beauty of the campus and the serene ambience that it offers (it's Shillong guys). As a matter of fact, that serenity makes one very nostalgic as you write or read about IIM Shillong.

If one wants to get ahead in life, one gets enough opportunities. I am a PGP student of batch 2015-17. I have spent approximately 4 months here. In terms of faculty, peer groups and supportive environment, I would like to rate 10 out of 5, if possible. Overall, the institute is excellent.
