IIM Trichy – The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me

IIM Trichy, the not so young anymore institute, has made a unique identity in the league of best B-schools in India. IIM-T has been doing great in wide areas of competitions across India and the world.

There are many things that make IIM-T unique and I would like to discuss a few of them here.

The State-of-the-art infrastructure at IIM-T is something it can proudly boast of. The classrooms have been designed to enhance the learning. The library or the Learning Resource Center is a piece of architectural marvel. The sports complex and the artificially created water-bodies adds to the liveliness of the campus. A Behavioral Lab, a Center for Management Science & Analytics and a Finance Lab takes the learning experience to the next level.

Going into the details of classroom learning, the student-faculty ratio of around 10, which is one of the best among its peers, allows its faculty to mentor the students in their journey at IIM-T. It makes the classroom highly interactive which further enhances the experience by bringing in different viewpoints into the discussion.

The diversity in the batch is one most of important contributor in management education. Whether it is diversity in terms of educational background, work experience, age or gender – all are equally important for learning in a B-School. IIM Trichy has a well-diversified batch in all these aspects. The eighth or the current batch has near to 1:1 gender ratio which in itself is a proud fact for a B-School. IIM Trichy believes in giving back to the society through its Make a Difference (MAD) projects which have been made as part of the curriculum.

Every student here in IIM Trichy is required to bring a sustainable difference in lives of the people in the backward area of the region. It gives the students a look into the ground reality that they may not be aware of. This is impacted the mindset of each and every student of IIM Trichy and every student is now committed to the upliftment of the society.

Let’s not forget about the location of IIM Trichy. Trichy is a hub of quality education with the presence of reputed institutes like IIM Trichy, NIT Trichy and IIIT Trichy. Trichy and the nearby regions are famous for ancient temples such as Rockfort temple, Meenakshi Temple and Ramanathaswamy Temple. Apart from that, Trichy has access to many weekend getaways such as Kodaikanal, Munnar, Ooty and Pondicherry.

Along with all these and the enthusiastic and curious culture of IIM Trichy make it a wonderful place to go for management education.

Which ABG Company Do I Want To Work For And Why?

I want to work for Aditya Birla Retail as it is close to my area of interest. Retail is something that we have been associated with as a customer since our childhood. The retail is currently facing a lot of disruptions and the industry is actually facing a test of time. I find retail a very interesting area where the next phase, what I feel, is merging of online and offline experience. With a wide catalogue, Aditya Birla retail covers most of the interesting things in the retail segment through their variety of More stores. With ABG, one can experience the retail transformation in the best possible way.
