A Place Far Away From Big Cities – IIM Kashipur
Indian Institute of Management, Kashipur is a management institute which was established on 2011 located in southern part of Uttarakhand. Kashipur is a place far away from big cities in which everyone is surrounded by nature’s fresh air. There are many factors such as environment, infrastructure, diversity, faculty, etc which makes this place quite different from other management institutes in India.
IIM Kashipur has a campus of over 200 acres of land, one of the biggest in the IIM family. The big red buildings with big circular holes on the wall looks like a smiley. The mess of college can also turn into a big dance floor for celebration. There are hostel facilities such as water purifier, washing machines, refrigerator in each room. The kitchen facilities in the mess are amazing and the services of the quality food in time cannot be better than this. Almost all the sports have its own grounds and courts inside the campus.
The campus is full of lawn, trees and fresh air. Kashipur also receives considerable amount of rainfall every year which makes colour green prominent during rainy season. The summer season is very humid and requires frequent drinking of water. It gets very cold during winter and one can enjoy a walk in the morning or evening through dense fog. All these things make the campus magnificently beautiful to see and live in.

There is an extensive amount of knowledge flow into students when taught by such experts who have this level of knowledge and experience. Many faculties also act as a counsellor for industries nearby. Our curriculum involves many surprise quizzes in the class, case studies and live projects on a regular basis.

The culture among the students of IIM Kashipur towards academics is very competitive and believes a lot on peer learning.
The most charming thing about IIM Kashipur is the geographical and cultural diversity which it creates due to students from different places and culture.
