Looks like placement has been dismal for last year. Some of the students are not even placed. Less than 50 offers means that students do not have much choice in terms of job offers.

hi,

I have a question on the massive pool of electives iimc offers.how does a student decide on which electives will be the best fit for his/her career. Are there any sessions before hand where more details are provided on those courses?

Hi,

While filling up the online application form, I am unable to proceed without filling the Division column for Class 10, 12 and B.Tech degrees. However, both during my ICSE/ISC examination and BTech from WBUT, no division was granted. 

Hence, could someone advise, if it is alright to leave the DIV column as NA or Not Granted.

Hi,

You can put percentage / CGPA in Division column if you didn't receive the division.

Hope this helps.

Hi,

Can some one give me an idea on how the international immersion program at IIMC for PGPEX was conducted this year in terms of in which school was it held and was it a complete theoretical program or was the program based upon case studies?

The immersion was held at Germany and London. Half of the batch went to Mannheim Business School Germany and the other half went to Ashridge Business School London. The program included theoretical concepts, case discussion and company visits.

The deadline for submitting the application is 31st August. Do the referees also need to submit their recommendations by that date? If yes, does this mean the application should actually be submitted few days before 31st, so that the referees get time to complete their recommendations by 31st?
