    Review of IIM Ahmedabad - Indian Institute of Management.
    Placements: Our college provides excellent placements. Many students secure placements in various sectors, such as marketing, consulting, finance, production, general management, operations, etc. The campus attracts industry-leading companies. Almost all students are placed and get internships. The highest salary package offered is 1 CPA.
    Infrastructure: The hostel facilities are excellent. Air-conditioners are available in classrooms. They provide a refrigerator. Purified drinking water is provided. Washrooms are available. Classrooms are well-equipped. Speakers, microphones, personal charging points, etc., are available. The library is huge. VSL is practically an institution itself. The college building is 5-storeyed. The mess and canteen are on the old and new campuses, and there are multiple eateries throughout the campus.
    Faculty: Our teachers are excellent and well-qualified. Most teachers are Ph.D. holders. The curriculum is very up-to-date and application-based. IIMA is renowned for its case-based learning, and it certainly lives up to that reputation. The evaluation process is comprehensive, and exams are difficult because we have to cover 12 to 13 subjects within 2 to 3 months.
    Other: Our college celebrates 2 fests, Chaos, an annual cultural fest, and TRBS, an annual business fest. There are fewer stray dogs, as that is a bit of a nuisance. The drainage system is quite terrible, and water pools up easily. Extracurricular activities are held. Our college has more than 50 clubs and many sports options. There are two sports complexes, two gyms, and designated areas for every sport, from cricket to football, all equipped with the necessary equipment. Scholarships are provided.
