A Utopian Campus – IIM Kashipur
What makes a B-school perfect? Well, everyone might have a different opinion about it depending upon his/her requirements. Is it the location, the placements, the learning experience or the brand associated with it . What if a college had the perfect mixture of all the above? Let us look at some of the qualities that make IIM Kashipur an ideal B-school.
It is not a mistake if one would say that IIM Kashipur is a paradise. Besides the whole campus is a garden filled with greenery, It also has some amazing infrastructure. The campus is located 30 km away from the Jim Corbett national park and 90kms away from the beautiful Nainital which makes it an ideal location for nature enthusiasts.
- NEW CAMPUS
The first among all the 6 IIMs to move to its fully functional permanent campus. The campus has been designed by leading designer firm Acorp (based out of Montreal, Canada) and is 200 acres of sheer brilliance.
At an overall level is that the faculty quality is really high. All the faculty are top notch, having prior experience from some of the most reputed institutes in the country and outside. The Faculty are participants in Harvard Business School’s the Global Colloquium on Participant-Centered Learning and the college follows the Harvard Case-Based Learning pedagogy. The Research Databases and Bloomberg Analysis facilities are again something that is a great asset. (13 Bloomberg Terminals and a big list of Databases.)
One factor which we all have in mind and when we enter, realize there is a huge array of stuff this place teaches you. At IIM Kashipur the Industry and Profile mix is really diverse. Indicating in essence the diversity of the batch as well. Delloite , KPMG, EY, PWC, JPMC, Thompson Reuters, Boeing are some of the reputed companies that students get placed in.
