    Course Curriculum Overview :

    The course is usually case-based, where the case ranges from HBS to some written by our own faculty members. The Professors here have studied from top colleges and are masters in what they teach, they know what they are talking about. It is imperative for one to do pre-class reading, as there is heavy weightage given to the in-class participation. We have marks ranging from 10% to 30% for Class Participation, depending from course to course. There are three terms per year, further divided as 2 slots per term. The end of each slot sees exams. Each faculty member decides how he wishes to assess the student in that course. Some course has exams, while some have projects and assignments. The grading is relative and follows a normal distribution curve. If one studies well, it is easy to score well. It is said, 'It is very difficult for anyone to fail at IIMA.'

    Fee Structure And Facilities :

    My annual fee for my PGP program was around 10 lacs per annum, which is very much feasible. Especially, in terms of teaching imparted to us. On top of that, they have some of the best placement opportunities. Even the hostel rooms are beyond awesome. I think our college has the best hostel among all IIMs. Hostel rooms were offered on a single occupancy basis and we never had any issues regarding the accommodation.

    Course Curriculum Overview :

    Course Structure was pretty updated as per the latest advancements in the corporate sector, specifically the future of the tech industry. The curriculum was industry-oriented and made us capable of tackling the rapidly changing corporate landscape. The exams were evaluated on the basis of class performance, external exams, summer internship reports, dissertations, etc.
