This is a must join college.

Placements: Placements in college are very good. Students are from diverse backgrounds and have a target role and industry which makes it difficult to attract companies. However, due to college brand, efforts and preparedness of students, almost 90% of the students end up getting their desired role and industry.

Infrastructure: Being the oldest IIM, the infrastructure can't be an issue. We have been to foreign universities, and their facilities are not much better than ours. In addition, the campus has 7 lakes which make th...

It depends if you are belong to OBC, SC and ST, you can easily get the admission. But if you are from general category, it is so much difficult to get into black IIM and new IIM. Baby IIM could be a possibility.

Your marks in all of your academic careers are good enough.
What matters is how much you can score in your MBA entrance examinations. The higher you score, the better chances you have to make it to some of the best B-Schools in the country.
