IIMs vs. Others
How different are the coveted IIMs from the other MBA colleges? In terms of course structure, academic acumen, extra-cultural activities, placement scenario, and the MBA culture, is there a lot of distinction?
IIM tag is what differentiates IIMs from other colleges. But here is the catch. What's the opportunity cost that IIM tag has? Is the IIM giving you ROI? Is the IIM providing you better exposure than the other B Schools? So, there are multiple factors with which you can compare IIM vs other B Schools.
Do your own research on all the factors. Prioritise the factors that are important to you. Then make a thoughtful decision.
All the best :)
