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.

Good Peer learning and pedagogy but less infrastructure

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.

A Properly-Structured Comprehensive Experience

Posted on 11 Oct' 15 by Kamalesh Srinivasan
Batch of 2015 | Post Graduate Programme in Management
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.
