IIM Indore established in the year 1996, is the sixth edition to the family of IIMs. The institute is ranked as the 10th best management institute in India by NIRF. 

Candidates coming from various backgrounds such as Engineering, Commerce and Arts, etc backgrounds seek admission to this institute after graduation. IIM Indore offers full-time PGP, PGP-HRM, and PGP-HRM(Mumbai campus) for the duration of 2 years. The EPGP is another postgraduate program offered for working executives.

Being in the prestigious group of older IIMs, getting into IIM Indore is tough. Every year more than 1032 students get calls from IIM Indore but the conversion rate is as low as 32% only. 

For Admission to PGP, PGP-HRM and PGP-HRM (Mumbai campus) Programs, candidates are shortlisted on the basis of CAT Cutoff released by IIM Indore. Despite, IIMI setting up the minimum CAT Cutoff as low as 90 percentile, it is expected to reach 98 percentile at the time of admission. 

Shortlisted candidates had to undergo the WAT and PI process in the next stage. But due to COVID-19 restrictions and country-wide lockdown, WAT has been removed for 2020-22 admission only for PGP and PGP-HRM courses. Thus, students with a valid score in PI either appeared online or offline would be treated as final. 

In the final stage of the selection process, scores of candidates are normalized and evaluated. IIM Indore has awarded more weightage to the Academics and communication skills of applicants instead of CAT marks. CAT score holds only 20% weightage against 74% weightage to class 10th and 12th marks in shortlisting for PI shortlisting.

The institute also provides a one-year full-time residential EPGP Program for the duration of 1 Year. Admission to EPGP will be conducted on the basis of GMAT score to students having an experience of more than 5 Years.

IIM Indore does not release GMAT cutoff for the EPGP program but according to unofficial sources, it is expected to remain at 550.  However, if we go by statistics the average experience of candidates admitted in EPGP is 7.5 years.

The institute also offers FPM program at the doctoral level in 8 specializations, admissions to the same will be granted as per overall performance in Research Aptitude Test (RAT) and Personal Interview (PI). Read about IIM Indore Courses & Fee

Ques. Which IIM should I prefer between Indore and Kozhikode after being a commerce graduate without experience keeping marketing as my priority?

● Top Answer By Akhil Guska on 20 Sept 21

Ans. You should prefer IIM Indore if you are considering Sales or Marketing as your career. Here are some of the reasons: The number of fresher at IIM Indore is higher and this leads to a higher number of companies visiting during placements offering Sales and Marketing roles. The percentage of students from each batch selected for the Sales and Marketing role is higher. The average CTC offered is nearly equal in both. IIM Indore wins over by a slight margin with 23.6 LPA while IIMK received 22.5 LPA IIM Kozhikode is increasing its intake of female candidates and this will bring more recruiters on board because of the additional seats. On the other hand, IIM Indore already has a great number of recruiters. At last, the final decision should be taken by you and have faith that it will be a good decision. Both the colleges have great campuses. Wherever you go, the hard work and dedication put on will play a major role in getting the dream offer.Read more

Ques. I have calls from IIM Indore and Kozhikode, but I have no aspirations to join this year. Need a suggestion if I should the take interview?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 17 Sept 21

Ans. One of my cousins graduated from IIM Kozhikode and here are some things you need to know before making any decision. My cousin left an admit from IIM Lucknow because he felt too young for an MBA then.  His friend left IIM Calcutta calling for similar reasons (though he joined Harvard Business School years later). The important thing to keep in mind is that if you are not 100% sure about doing an MBA now, then it is not the right decision to proceed further with.  Whatever the reason may be another shot at IIMs A, B, or C, a sudden boost in salary, opportunities abroad, etc. It is an expensive degree, it requires hard work and sacrificing 2 years of employment in terms of money earned and seniority).  So it is not necessary to take that huge leap. It is still advised that you appear for the interview at least at one of the places. If nothing else, it will give you a valuable experience. You worked hard to get the call and might as well make it worth your effort. Though, keep in mind that if you reject their final offer, you might not be considered again in subsequent years.Read more

Ques. Which is better, a BBA MBA from IIM Indore or a BA LLB from NLSIU?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 16 Sept 21

Ans. This is entirely a matter of your choice or preference. Both these courses have a very different offering from each other in terms of learning. One is a double bachelor (BA LLB) and the other is a Bachelor's + Master’s degree (BBA-MBA). You can choose one or the other on the basis of your interest. If you are someone who wants to pursue a career in law and be a lawyer, you should pick the course from NLSIU, and if the Management and business side of things is where your interests lie, the clear choice is IIM Indore. If placements are what concern you, IIM Indore is the winner as compared to NLSIU. IIM Indore’s Integrated Programme in Management has an average pay package of about 20 lakhs per annum which is way more than NLSIU’s median at 12 lakhs per annum for a BA LLB graduate. Along with this, IIM Indore also offers opportunities to be placed abroad, and those who get placed abroad can get a package up to 90 LPA, on the other hand, NLSIU doesn’t have much scope for placements abroad and the few that take place don’t garner more than a 20L PA package.Read more

Ques. Should I join IIM Indore this year or take another shot at the CAT?

● Top Answer By Aaditya Hari Nair on 07 Sept 21

Ans. You have not mentioned your profile so it’s difficult to answer precisely. Let’s assume you are a male IT engineer with decent academics. Your decision is solely based on your profile. For instance, if you were previously earning 12 LPA in your job and are content with it then you may go for a year drop. Or if you wish to convert to better colleges in this league such as IIM BLACK or XL or FMS, then keep in mind that the selection criteria of IIMs are very unpredictable.  The previous year, GEM at 99.3 was converted at IIM K easily. But this year the cut-off for shortlisting of IIM K was 99.8+ with good academics for GEM. Moreover, your decision depends on the branch you have converted. Compare the previous placement records to have a better knowledge of your choice. You should not negotiate with your course of interest.Read more

This course is interdisciplinary includes finance, statistics, economics, psychology, Sociology, media literacy and highly varied courses including dance, drama and public speaking which helps in overall development of the student and moulds him/her into a complete person with ethical business acumen. The thing I liked most about the college is the work ethic which I learnt, the concept of peer learning and networking according to me is my most liked part of the college, and obviously the campus fests too are added to this list.
