We Are IIM Sirmaur, More Than Just A “Baby IIM”


Yes you read it correct. I had a similar inclination when I heard it out of the blue. A residential area in Himachal with mountains and waterways adding to its excellence. IIM Sirmaur would have been my home for the following 2 years. I needed to persuade myself first whether it was worth for me to join an IIM with the tag “Baby IIM”. In any case I joined IIM Sirmaur and simply the first day at grounds influenced me to feel appropriate about my choice. I turned into an individual from IIM community and began my new phase of life.

A bunch of 66 undergraduates with blended mix of experienced and freshers were all prepared to demonstrate their greatness and contend with each other. Nevertheless I could get some great companions who are commonly uncommon of their kind. Prestigious educators from various streams began taking our lectures. Days were completely stuffed with guest lectures, industry visits and projects. We broke the limits by sorting out TEDx .  Then we had Leadership summit which was out of the box for any IIM at this moment.

Then a question came into my mind “why Baby IIM ? ” , when we are going through the same academic rigour as students of other IIM, when we are being guided by the same renowned faculties as they are and also when we are getting the same industry exposure as they are . We are having “Sankalp” working for the welfare of society, and other clubs adding to the excellence of the institute. Extraordinary students participating in different competitions and bagging prizes. Moreover having any IIP at SDA Bocconi was an awesome experience both from academic as well as an experiential point of view. What more is expected then?

Might be because of placements I Thought back then!

But Here also I,“and many others”,  were proved wrong by the students of IIM Sirmaur. Our batch got 100% summer placements within few weeks. Adding to this our seniors made us proud by bagging one the highest domestic as well as international package across all the IIMs.

“Baby IIM”? Are you kidding me!

We are a lot more than “baby”. We have high aspirations and higher zeal to conquer the world. We are “IIM Sirmaur”.

Which ABG company would I like to work for and why?

Company under ABG group I would like to work for would be Hindalco Industries.  I have a work experience of 30 months as an assistant manager in one the leading Aluminium Manufacturing Industry. Hindalco is considered as one of the reputed company in this Industry. With work culture being employee friendly, and conducive to growth, Hindalco provides a lucrative opportunity to fresh graduates. My work experience in the same industry adding to Operations Management from IIM Sirmaur incites me to pursue my career with Hindalco Industries. To be given an opportunity, I would gladly like to be a part Hindalco Family.
