IIM Shillong And The Many Reasons That Make It Unique

IIM Shillong, the CampusInCloudS is not just a b-school; it is a home away from home. It is a place where teaching is not just restricted to class rooms but it goes beyond that. Here students are taught to take up live projects and apply the theoretical knowledge in a practical way. IIM Shillong is the college where sustainability is not just in words but in actions too, such as using dustbins made of bamboo in the campus. It is one of the few colleges to host a Golf Cup where more than 150 golf players come to participate. IIM Shillong not just believes in making managers but also in giving back to the society through the events like Nurturing Minds where school children are taught in an interactive way. IIM Shillong is an entirely different experience.

If I sit down to list the reasons why I chose IIM Shillong, definitely I can write down pages. There is no one reason to choose but many. The students of IIM Shillong, which are called the participants, have won numerous of corporate competitions and scholarships at both national and international levels such as Global Winner of Yes Bank Transformation Series, National Winner of HUL The Premier League, Winner of Aditya Birla Group Scholarship and Winner of Yes Bank Aspire Scholarship to name a few. Winning is a legacy at IIM Shillong and this is one of the attractions that attracted me to IIM Shillong, apart from its beautiful green and peaceful campus.
