Academics is at the heart of any IIM and particularly so at IIM Kashipur. Academics doesn't only centre around lectures, but also real-life business situations through case studies, role-plays, industry and field visits, live projects etc. Learning opportunity is tremendous and it is upto the individual candidate to make optimum utilisation of the facilities offerred by IIM Kashipur.Lecturers with vast academic experience are at the heart of the faculty fraternity. As mentioned above, teaching pedagogy involves the state-of-the-art methodologies followed at global world class B-schools as well as including methodologies that are unique to IIM Kashipur due to its locational advantage viz. frequent industry visits, live projects etc.
One of the six newer IIMs, IIM Kashipur is differentiated from other IIMs through following aspects: option for Green MBA (sponsored by UN), superb infrastructure support (own campus), Good professors, Blomberg terminals, lean manufacturing cell & focus on entrepreneurship. The never sleeping campus is known for having the maximum no. of extracurricular activities with at least one event or activity each.
campus was located in Uttarakhand and it was very green around there. People led a peaceful life and most of the surrounding areas were rural. We had amazing 2 years at campus, always involved in some activities, events or studies. During some free time, students used to run to Nainital and Jim Corbett, they were about 2 hours away from Kashipur. Talking of Gender ratio, it wasn't a healthy one. We had 26 girls out of 130 students. And there were numerous Inter and Intra college fests/ events during 2 years of my stay at IIM.
The quality of an institute can be judged by its faculties. And the students of IIM Kashipur have had the privilege, to hone their managerial skills, under the tutelage of some of the most reputable faculties of this country.In order to truly appreciate something you got to live it through right!! Though I may be biased with IIM Kashipur as "The Tale of the Hunt will always glorify its Hunter".
My journey in IIM Kashipur was wonderful so far. The location is very beautiful with hill stations nearby. The road to the campus is a little bumpy, but it is all worth reaching there. The campus is very good in terms of infrastructure and college life. The hostels are spacious and good enough. The faculty and corporate exposure is a plus point. The fees seem to be expensive, but it is all worth for management studies: the knowledge we get and the placements which we're offered. But the best part is the student life and friends we make over here
