A Year Of Many Wins For IIM Indore

It’s not a secret that placements still remain as the most important parameter to juxtapose the performances of 2 or more b-schools. However, the quality of performance of a b-school’s participants in a multitude of well-renowned corporate as well as institute-organised case study competitions is also a critical parameter used by the recruiters and MBA aspirants alike for the evaluation of that particular b-school.

IIM Indore exhibited one of its best placement performances ever in the recently concluded final placements of the batch of 2018 where the average CTC for its 443 PGP participants rose to INR 18.17LPA (the very first time that it crossed the mark of INR 18LPA), the highest CTC rose to INR 63.45LPA and the institute ensured 100% placements by successfully placing a whopping 620+ students in time.

Even after an impressive placements season, it was still the institute’s performance in national and international-level case competitions that hogged all the limelight! Here’s an account of all the notable wins achieved by IIM Indore’s students in the academic year 2017-18 in some of the most competitive competitions of the b-school circuit:

The aforementioned, as well as many other unmentioned wins, owe a lot to the conducive atmosphere that the institute, as a whole, offers to its students. The words of one of the PGP 2016-18 participants, Aishwarya Saraswat (a member of the winning team in HUL L.I.M.E. and the finalist team in Nestle 4Ps Challenger), sum up the culture prevalent at IIM Indore succinctly, “I think it has to be a combination of the student’s competitive spirit and a collective desire to make IIM Indore proud. Every year the baton to competitions is passed with great expectations and an unwavering support from the faculty, seniors and juniors.”
