“Today’s Popular TV Serials Depict A Life Different From Normal Life. Why Do You Think Realism Is Absent From Them?” – WAT Wednesdays

Welcome to yet another week of WAT Wednesdays!

To view and comment on previous weeks’ topics, please click here.

This week’s topic is an actual WAT topic of IIM Indore 2013 – “Today’s Popular TV Serials Depict A Life Different From Normal Life. Why Do You Think Realism Is Absent From Them?”

Please bear in mind that there is no right or wrong answer for it. That’s an opinion. However, the reasons for that opinion may be right or wrong.  And that’s what is important – the process of reaching the conclusion rather than the conclusion itself.

Write an essay on it and let us help you get better at it.

This is how it will work:

1) Users can post their essays in the comments section below by logging in through their www.insideiim.com User id.

2) You can write your essay on the topic for the entire week. You can even challenge your friends and make it more interesting!

3) The thread will be moderated by Team InsideIIM to ensure the discussion is kept relevant and is not abusive.

4) On Saturday, experts and industry professionals at InsideIIM (all ex-IIM, XLRI, MICA only) will rate each essay on the thread on the scale of 10 with some guidance.

This exercise may not replace the practice that you may need daily to master WAT but it will definitely help you to shape your line of thought. We will ensure that if you go through these next few weeks with us on this thread you will markedly improve your content. Hopefully, there will be more substance when you actually write an essay/WAT after going through this exercise.

The schedule for placements this year is as follows:

Cluster 1: 13th February 2017

The institute will follow a rolling process post-Cluster 3 if necessary.

Look out for this section with more updates on the above mentioned dates.

16th February 2017

IIM Ahmedabad conducted Cluster 2 of the Finals placement process for the PGP batch of 2017 on 16th February 2017. The second cluster consisted of five cohorts: Consumer Goods and Services, General Management, Niche Consulting, Pharmaceuticals and Technology.

The Consumer Goods and Services and Technology cohorts included regular partners like Airtel, Asian Paints, HUL, ITC, Nestlé, P&G, Reckitt Benckiser and Samsung. The General Management and Leadership cohort comprised of recruiters such as the C K Birla Group, Mahindra and Tata Administrative Services, while the Niche Consulting cohort comprised of firms like Feedback Infra and others.

The third cluster is scheduled to be conducted on 19th February 2017.

13th February 2017

The first cluster of the Final Placement process for the PGP class of 2017 was held today at the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad.

The list of Cluster 1 recruiters included regular partners such as Accenture Strategy, A. T. Kearney, Bain & Co., Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, McKinsey & Company, Oliver Wyman and others.

IIM-A has always had an extremely rich mix of firms from diverse sectors. Consulting firms, offering management consulting roles across geographies, continued to hire in large numbers. This reinforces the strength of the general management program at IIM-A. McKinsey & Company made the highest number of offers – 15 (including pre-placement offers) in Cluster 1. Finance firms offered roles in investment banking, private equity, venture capital and capital markets across functions and geographies.

Valentine’s Day Is A Marketing Gimmick – GD Monday

Welcome to yet another week of GD Monday!

To View and Comment on previous weeks’ topics, please click here.

On one hand, it seems sweet to have a day dedicated to lovers all around the world, on the other hand, it seems stupid to wait for an entire year to make someone feel special. With a hike in prices for flowers, gifts and movies on Valentine’s day and an added pressure to have a date to make yourself seem cool, Valentine’s Day may have just become another marketing gimmick. Would you rather make your someone special feel loved on just one day by bringing them flowers or just do it on any other day just because? Would you want to be a part of the marketing gimmick or be free of that?

Tell us your views on the comments below and get evaluated for the same. Please bear in mind that there is no right or wrong answer for it. That’s an opinion. However, the reasons for that opinion may be right or wrong.  And that’s what is important – the process of reaching the conclusion rather than the conclusion itself.

This is how it’ll work:

1) Users can post their arguments in the comments section below by logging in through their www.insideiim.com User id.

2) You can argue and counter-argue on the topic for the entire week. You can even challenge your friends and make it more interesting!

3) The thread will be moderated by Team InsideIIM to ensure the discussion is kept relevant and is not abusive.

4) On Saturday, experts and industry professionals at InsideIIM (all ex-IIM, XLRI, MICA only) will rate each argument on the thread on the scale of 10 with some guidance.

This cannot replace the experience of the actual GD but this exercise will surely help you shape your line of thought. While we may not be able to help you here with your delivery, we ensure that if you go through these next few weeks with us on this thread you will markedly improve your content. Hopefully, there will be more substance when you actually speak in a GD after going through this exercise.
