The New Campus Of IIM Raipur

Choosing a B-School is no doubt one the most daunting tasks a management aspirant has to go through. Every college is a peacock flaunting itself to win you over, but in the end, you have to choose & settle with one. I converted IIM Raipur, Ranchi, Kashipur, Sirmaur, Bodh Gaya, Sambalpur, Vishakhapatnam, Amritsar. So I settled with IIM Raipur & I’m totally happy with my decision. Why? Then come dive in with me.

IIM Raipur is one of the new IIMs started much later than the established ones. But it still carries the much coveted & respected IIM tag with it. Raipur is the capital of Chhattisgarh, with great connectivity to all the major cities in India as it is in the center of India. Although it is a relatively young institution, IIM Raipur has been growing by leaps and bounds since its inception. Further, I firmly believe that those years are not far when it will be comparable to older IIMs like ABC.

One of the unique factors of IIM Raipur has been its Student Exchange Program which is way ahead of the new IIMs & is considered to be in league with top b-schools. Having a profile with work experience of only 10 months with an engineering background, IIM Raipur was the best choice when compared to other new IIMs. It has a diverse batch profile with a good amount of freshers. In the end, the new campus of IIM Raipur is a big cherry on the top. If this does not convince you then nothing else can.


Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?

Given an opportunity, I would love to work for Aditya Birla Science and Technology Company Private Limited. I want to work as a technical consultant because of my profile. I think it will be exciting to work on new technologies & I will be able to make use of my technical prowess & managerial skills and make myself useful for the company. As the business is getting increasingly technology-driven, innovation and technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning & Internet of Things will be shaping the future market & will create a lot of potential opportunities.
