The Indian Institute of Management in Sirmaur was established in 2015, making it the youngest and the northernmost within the fraternity. And that is why the IIM- Nagpur in Himachal Pradesh 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- Sirmaur is mentored by the IIM- Lucknow. The institute at present is operating out of a temporary campus in the beautiful city of Paonta Sahib in Himachal Pradesh. The new 210- acre campus will be ready in a few years’ time. The town of Sirmaur was chosen ahead of bigger cities in the state such as Kullu or Shimla, as it would help bolster the local infrastructure. The flagship 2- year PGP is the only course that is run at the institute now. Several elective and specialization options are possible alongside. 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.
Admissions to IIM- Sirmaur 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 Sirmaur 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- Sirmaur, with several clubs and committees being formed here. There are clubs for both academic as well as non- academic affairs. Academic clubs include Area 51, Fin Serve, Mar-kaizen, Sanviya, Horizon and Quintas for trading & investment, finance, marketing, operations, HR and IT. The non- academic clubs are the Quizzar, Eloquence, Vibgyor, Rangmanch and Safarnama for quizzing, debating, photography, arts and travel respectively. Doing justice to the location, the travel club has a specific focus on Himalayan discovery. There is also a local Toastmasters chapter here. There are ample sports facilities on campus here, with even more possible in the new campus getting built.
Beyond the necessary fun and games, there are also several committees looking after specific roles. Sankalp, for example, looks after the CSR. There is also an E- Cell looking after entrepreneurship. Other committee names are self- explanatory which are- Placements, Sports, Cultural, Media, Business Conclave and Mess. The Student Council oversees all of this.
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- EY, DCY Shriram, Tata Trusts, Career Launcher, Schindler, HDFC Life, RIL, VLCC, GMR, Square Yards, India mart, Zomato, Byju’s, DTDC, Rivigo, Skylark, I-PAC, Naukri.com, all cargo, AIS, Ogilvy & Mather, Safe Express, Indian Oil, Azim Premji Foundation, IDBI, Du Pont, Apollo Hospitals and Havells.
