I had an unrelated question. During placements do we get location preferences during final placements? How often do people get their desired location.

Please Help

Sometimes on a rare free day, you feel like a slice of nostalgia to bring back old memories...and today being such a day...decided to log in to PG after ages. But I am disappointed...that the thread which assumed so much importance to me and a lot of others over 2 years today lies forgotten in the realms of lost links...
Life@iima used to be a window to showcase what we at WIMWI went through..the good and the bad, to put down thoughts which we could later come back to when the world became a closeted corporate jungle and to see how life at our dear school evolved over the years. Unfortunately today I see nothing on this thread...and I leave in sorrow...

The unique aspect of the event was a special session by a current IIM Ahmedabad student, Narendra Yadav who founded the Fountainhead School in his village in UP. He illustrated the many challenges an individual faces in India and how he overcame them

"Be sure to enjoy every minute of your student life at IIM-A. Even if it means the long dreadful hours spent studying for an exam or working on a project or the sleepless nights where the temperature hits above +30 degrees. Make those magic moments with your classmates last. If you cannot see it now, you will agree with me once you have graduated and have started working." - Joachim Meyer Andersen, Exchange student at IIMA!

  • Motivational! A Must See!. 30 Mar.
@[167751:jove] Nope the view's still very much here Although the trees have grown a bit too much and blocked out most of it :D

FYI, Dorms 30-33 have been built right behind D28 & 29.
BMW? Lol...good one...is this in the field adjoining the new campus classrooms? Ram Bhai would have survived even a hurricane. And Dorm 33!! That means the view from my room D2424 is long gone I guess :(

Will drop in sometime. Been ages. Thanks for the update :)

Well, stumbled across the thread on a rare free day....posting for the first time in almost 2 years. Corporate life sure takes its toll on everything else.
Feels good to see the thread is till active. Once upon a time this used to be our window to tell the world what happened at WIMWI beyond acads and placements. I see the spirit remains the same. So, can anyone update me on how the campus has changed over the past year? I hear the canteen location has changed....what about the rest?

T-Nite (or Talent Nite) is an inter-section rivalry within IIMA where 6 sections fight it out over 4 days in multiple cultural disciplines to establish their supremacy on campus. It is a long-standing tradition that often triggers fond memories among alums and draws them to the campus to witness the festivities. Passion runs high and sleep, low on these 4 most memorable nights of an IIMA student's life!

A poster for this year's T-Nite - Click on the link, like the pic and stay connected to IIMA's cultural scene!

Is there anyone from PGPX programs current or past?
You step out of this place and you start realizing the worth of time you spent here.

Please keep posting, for us alums this is the best place to stay updated with campus activities.
