Remarks :

Studying at IIM is every management hopefuls dream. I have lived that dream and I must say it was amazing. My 2 years at IIM Sambalpur were amazing and full of life long learnings. Some of the members of the faculty are still a mentor to me and the friendships that I made are still going strong.

Admission :

I got admission after clearing the CAT exam. There was an interview after that and then the candidates were shortlisted. Apart from this, a minimum 50% is required in graduation. Doing an MBA was always my aim and nothing can be better than an IIM.

Placement Experience :

The placements are very good as expected form an IIM. Almost every students gets placed. The highest package can go upto 20 lakhs and the mean package is around 9 lakhs. Internships are also available for students and they are paid as well.

Course Curriculum Overview :

I Choose Biotechnology, as Centre of Biotechnology was the top in performance of other courses in research field and higher studies. We had a very close relationship with the faculty but during course work and viva teachers were strict, they should be. The teaching were mainly through ppt and all the faculty were PhDs. The exams were conducted mostly first we have quiz test then mid semester, then again quiz test, then practical and lastly end Semester. There were 2 semesters each year.

Loan/ Scholarship Provisions :

Fees was once decided and it remained same for 4 years. the fee hike was for the next batches. Job I didn't get as I belonged to btech biotechnology background and was aspiring only for core jobs but placement for other branches was too good

Campus Life :

There was an annual fest every year in December, The fest was awesome, Farewell freshers and many other. There were different groups such as dancing singing , entrepreneur, many.. name it and you will find in SOA
