@seniors nd my batchmates
i hv taken up pgp in imi nd nw i hv got a call from iit kharagpur also...so m in a bit of dilema wethr to thnk once for kharagpur ovr imi or nt.
so please if ppl here cn help me tkng a wise decision wthgt being partial to imi bt just by gvng d advantages of 1 ovr d othr...
hi varun, i feel both b-schools r almost at par. as curtz said compare the advatages and disadvantages of both b-schools n go for the one which better suits ur interest. placement wise, both the instis r almost at par, coz although vgsom is new, but due to the strong iit-kgp alumni, placements r not too much of a problem with big brands making their way for recruitment. where, imi does score over vgsom is the course curriculum, faculty, locational advantage, etc. imi has 6 terms in 2 yrs whereas vgsom has 4. vgsom also gives 1 month holiday after each semester, so the rigour is definately a lot lesser, (according to me mba course rigour must be high). plus, most of the faculty are localites (bongs) in vgsom which again takes away a bit of a flavour that mba offers. plus, in vgsom, all ur batchmates will be engineers, which takes away the diversity that u'll get in imi. although, vgsom will offer u more interaction with work ex junta, coz its heavily favoured towards it. take all the considerations into lite, n make ur decision......... regards, deepak.
