What is it?

Every year, we handpick a team of 10-15 students from different b-schools in India to virtually run an online platform while they are still studying. They learn the nuts and bolts of digital marketing, analytics and user behaviour in the online world. Students get immediate feedback about their work based on user behaviour on InsideIIM. Unlike most projects where one gives recommendations and goes away, on InsideIIM the student team is actually involved in the execution.

Here’s what past student team members have to say about the program –

  1. I learned Google analytics which helped me with my final placement. Since there was no micromanagement, I had the freedom to write whatever I wanted. – Karan Kakkar, IIM Kozhikode (Class of 2016-2018). Currently working at Sapient Consulting.
  2. I have a dream: a dream to become the writer that I always wanted to be. For several years, that dream was hidden somewhere in my backpack, or my laptop, where the black lines on the scrap paper screamed to be set free. InsideIIM acted like a platform, which gave wings to my dream. A smile on the faces of those free black lines on InsideIIM portal is a clear testimonial of the happiness I got out of this Student Team Program. – Abhishek Kshirsagar, IIM Bangalore (Class of 2017-2019) (Interned at HUL)
  3. The continuous flow of the program enabled me to strategically learn and implement content marketing to a relevant audience. – Devanshu, IIM Lucknow (Class of 2017-2019) (Interned at Flipkart)
  4. One of the best things I’ve done in B-school; it expanded my network far beyond IMT-G. – Sachin Mandot, IMT Ghaziabad (Class of 2016-2018). Currently working at HCL.
  5. Before joining IIM Shillong, I saw a lot of InsideIIM articles floating on my college’s group. So, my selection into the student team was an achievement and a matter of pride for me. Now I have a better understanding of the content suitable for each stakeholder. – Gaurang Gupta, IIM Shillong (Class of 2017-2019) (Interned at HSBC)
  6. I remember so many people walking up to me and saying that they used my InsideIIM articles to get into various top MBA colleges. It gave me a sense of satisfaction and happiness. – Amol Aranake, IIM Bangalore (Class of 2017-2019,)(Interned at J.P Morgan Investment Banking)


Editor’s Note – One thing that InsideIIM truly stands for is Storytelling. There are a lot of websites that give out a lot of information-based and news-y articles. InsideIIM is that and more. We are all about stories and personal journeys. We try to marry data and content and weave those into stories that our audience can not only relate to but it also adds value to their life. If making a difference, even to one user, is what you are looking for, I would urge you to apply to this program.
