IIM Trichy – An Unsurpassable Journey

IIM Tiruchirappalli which we fondly call as IIMT – When uttered every time it cascades blood inside me. The feel and comfort the institute has given me as a student and the experiences I happened to gain in the precursory year, makes it prominently unique for me. Be it the state of the art campus or the propitious student faculty ratio, IIMT promises an upsurge in quality both in terms of mind and soul.

The peer interaction that happens here is phenomenal – the intellectual brainstorming sessions and toiling nights with the people whom you hardly know, every time you get to end up in a new project team and the ineffable part is that by the end, some turn out to be your bestie. This is the place of experimentation by trial and error as this will be the same case in a real scenario in an industry where we get accumulated to different teams with unfamiliar members.

I would like to quote upon the faculties in IIM Trichy as ungrudging which I would like to substantiate with an instance. It was one of our case competition presentations and in the last minute when we needed the help of faculty, he was ready to help and came all the way from his home during midnight. This connotes the tremendous dedication level of the faculties here.

Among the new 14 IIM’s formed as per the Eleventh Five year plan, IIMT tops in all aspects in terms of academics, infrastructure, quality of education, winning and participating in disparate case competitions, indulging in numerous live projects and finally devoting quite some time in a social initiative project done by every student in IIMT entitled as “Make a Difference”, trying to create an impact in the society.

Though started in the year 2011, IIM Trichy moves ahead of all the prominent institutes in terms of National Institute of Ranking Framework (NIRF) by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, India, standing in 15 th position overall. This could be achieved within a span of 7 years shows that IIM Trichy reaching its zenith is not quite far away.

I would like to cite a salient feature that made IIM Trichy so venerated for me. When I was looking for an opportunity to make my country proud, IIMT gave me a precious golden opportunity of representing India in South Korea through the Youth Delegation Program organized by the Ministry of India. While very few IIMs get this opportunity from the Government, out of which only very few candidates will be selected on the basis of different selection rounds, me getting this opportunity has left me rhapsodic.

IIM Trichy is the first IIM to be a part of CFA Institute University Recognition Programme. Scholarships are offered to limited students every year to take up CFA Examination which helps the students in the Finance domain.

Eventually, after a tiring day in classes and project works when you return back to your room, you have a well sophisticated single occupancy air conditioned room with a private balcony to relax back which showcases that IIMT cares for its most valuable stakeholders – the students. IIMT for me is a Home far away from Home.

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

Emanating from a Material Science background in Engineering and as an add-on to currently pursuing Management Studies in Strategy and Operations domain, I would like to work for Hindalco Industries – the aluminium and copper manufacturing company of Aditya Birla group. Being Word’s largest aluminium rolling company and Asia’s primary producer of Aluminium sets it apart from others. My father has worked for 35 years in a fertilizers’ company and Hinadalco has a fertilizer plant associated with it makes it even closer to my heart. Getting associated with one of India’s largest conglomerate sector itself is indeed a
resplendent moment.
