Life At IIM-Indore

Akhil Krishnan, who is currently pursuing his PGDM (MBA in popular term) first year at IIM Indore, tells us what it’s like inside the walls of the institute most students dream of getting into.

Akhil Krishnan_IIMIndoreIIM Indore is a whole new world altogether. The campus is in the outskirts of the city and situated at a hilly region. It’s the largest campus as compared to the other IIMs or top B-schools with the infrastructure being at par with world class institutions.

A simple day at IIM Indore is similar to that of any other B-school. We are loaded with assignments which need to be submitted before the deadlines. Also, all the lectures require us to be thorough with the readings or else the entire lecture would end up being a huge bouncer. We need to be on our toes all the time as there may be a surprise quiz taken at any time.

The environment here is very competitive. IIM Indore gives more weightage to consistent academic performance while selecting the candidates and so we are surrounded by college and university toppers coming from different parts of India.  You can just imagine the amount of efforts that need to be put in to catch up with them.

So far, my experience in IIM Indore has been pretty good. As a fresher and from an engineering background, I got to learn a lot of business aspects and other terminologies related to management which I would surely not have known otherwise being a techie. Also, there are so many student fests here with IIM Indore boasting of a plethora of clubs and committees carrying out these activities. You could call them a stress buster from the busy schedule. I myself still can’t believe I have somehow found time to be a part of this marketing club called ‘Mercur-i’. :-P

As compared to other IIMs, the best thing I found about IIM Indore is the relationship among students. Usually in a B-school, you find people interacting (technically called networking) with others only for building a professional relationship. Generally, good friendship doesn’t blossom in a B-school as students are too busy to be good friends. Although there is a huge level of competition at IIM Indore, I don’t find students here too self-centered. There is an overall friendly atmosphere and a good relationship with seniors.

One of the best parts of IIM Indore is the Saturday movie screening. Every new movie release is screened in the auditorium for the students and faculty. Apart from that, we enjoy the presence of two gymnasiums, a night mess, an Olympic-sized swimming pool and a crowd-favourite student-run juice centre.

Overall, the journey so far at IIM Indore has been nonetheless exciting for me. Hopefully, I will cherish this journey after two years.
