This be my first post. I am sitting for cat05, so visiting threads of some bschools i wanna apply
Been following some chat on this thread - lots of talk on results and the pandey bros. I wanna know 1 thing - is there ANY Mica Alumni who has made it to top in ad world? Like Rama Bijapurkar from IIM-A and Jagdeep Kapur from JBIMS and Prasun Joshi from IMT. I dont know of any and i think anyone wanna take admission at Mica must ponder on this.
Facts for you to ponder over:
>> The first batch of PGPCM from MICA passed out in 1996.
Rama Bijapurkar is Batch of 1977 at IIMA
Jagdeep Kapoor is a 1983 passout and set up Samsika in 1994.
>> The creatives in an agency tend to grab much more limelight than the servicing/planning folks.
>> We have alumni who've been doing extremely well:
@ Arvind Krishnamoorthy (Batch of 2000) who is Regional Sales Producer for Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, and Indonesia with Yahoo. He led his team to win both an Abby and an Emvie for Pepsi Online campaigns
@ Basant Rathore (Batch of 1996) who is GM Brand Development for Dainik Jargran - India's most read newspaper in any language.
@ Kaustuv Ghosh (Batch of 1996) who handles innovation & strategy for NDTV
@ Kartik Kumar & Sunil Vishnu who run Chennai's popular theatre group Evam
For a young insti... you could definitely say MICA is on its way to getting there. Plus it's not an "ad school" ...
... we're into "marketing communications"
