Why you should apply to IITK if you intend to pursue an MBA -
Usually the factors that business aspirants generally consider while applying to any B-school or MBA pogram are:
Institute's global reputation
Quality of faculty, their qualification, experience and global recognition
Courses taught
Student profile
Placements
1) Brand Image - Globally an IIT is more well known than any other educational institute in India generally
2)Faculty would be the best that you would possibly get in any Institute in India -
At IITK we have Proffs who could earn 10 times more in corporate sector or shifting to other foreign B-schools than what they are earning at IITK. They prefer to be at IITK because they love the campus culture, freedom to conduct research and innovation rather than in a corporate board room or (which they find boring)
Almost all faculty are PHD's from IIMA, IIMB, IIMC and top global B-schools along with years of experience and international recognitions. They provide consulting services to various MNC's and are bigshots in their field of interest.
3)Infrastructure - Well whatever I say about this would be insufficient and you would appreciate only if you visit the campus just once.
AC lecture halls, 24 hour highspeed LAN and wireless internet, 5-star like hostels (just see my Hall 7 at IITK on google images), single occupancy rooms, multiple facilites for all possible sports, swimming, gym,etc.
We have one of the best libraries of the country..
There are classes to learn Japanese, German, French and other global languages free of cost
4) Hobbies and overall personality development -
There are around 40 hobby clubs who have professional guides for all kinds of activities like dance, music, singing, writing, poetry, languages, literature, astronomy,photography, adventure sports, science and technology...and so on (I don't even remember)... Gliding club where you would get to fly :smile: ... Festivals like Antaragni, Events like Megabucks, Udghosh with annual budget of more than 1 crore or so..
There are parties on various occasions with DJ disco and snacks and all by IITK gymkhana.. All free of cost to you..
5) Guest lectures and corporate Interaction takes place almost every week with one or the other big shot coming to campus from varied fields and industries.. You get the advantage of numbers here.. BTech's, MTechs, PHD's, Proffs, RA's and MBA's as well - The contacts are unlimited and so is the reach of the alumni
6) A large community - IITK has one of the most intelligent brains of the country. You benefit from their brains, enthusiasm and initiative as well. This is not just an isolate institute with just 200-300 people pursuign some degree. Its a whole world of possibilities.
7) Placements - Brandname, IITK alumni and contacts.. Big shot proffs -An you can imagine the world that follows.. You can surf our website to knw the details
Batch profile - IITK 2010 MBA batch has only 15% of students below 1 year of work ex (freshers should not worry - I myself am one :angel:).. 80-90% are from top colleges like IIT's, DCE, NSIT and top NIT's.
What else do you want.. Name it and we have it.. I am able to mention only a few aspects of my first hand glimpse of IITK and donot find time to write comprehensively.. There are so many other facilites and possibilities that even I am not aware of - you cannot expect this in an institution which has only 200-300 ppl pursuing a degree.. This is a centre of innovation and excellence and not just any other educational institution
And an IIT would never brag about all this..
Because its mission is to produce future leaders, visionaries who would add to the intellectual pool of India and it is not an educational institute which earns money out of its fees and views education as a business or industry..
Hence it would never waste money on various modes of bragging and advertisement or paying news channels for conducting various kinds of programs to establish an image.

It does seem that IISC Bangalore is not a part of JMET 09.
The moderator will get in touch with the students there and revert back.

Any queries regarding MBA at IIT Kanpur or JMET 09 are welcome.

The session was held on 1st September

hello everyone !

This is just to give you all a lowdown on what is happening at IIT Kanpur.. today we witnessed the launch of iDeas - The International Business Plan Competition. We had three entrepreuners who had made it big before they even hit 30 as guest speakers for the launch.

The signature energy and zeal of any successful entrepreneur was evident in their interaction with the audience and in the way they outlined the trials and tribulations as well as the joys of starting your very own company.

The one on one interaction with people who actually had the will in them to go out in the field and play hard was an enriching experience for the jam packed hall. Other than renouncing the commonly held belief that entrepreneurship is all about making money, the speakers elucidated the qualities required to be successful in one. The budding entrepreneurs were treated to a generous helping of real life experiences and stories of the speakers.

After the fitting launch to the competition, the event itself is expected to attact a huge participation with the greatest draws being not only the big prize money at stake but also the experience of creating as well as presenting a business plan in the face of such stiff competition.

How much % of marks one shld expect to get into the top 3 colleges, if paper like last year`s comes again?

Kindly check the following page

JMET :: Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur

Jmet pattern has changed this year. earlier it was 2 hrs for 150 questions and now its 3 hrs for 120 questions,

So you can be assured that likelyhood of this year's paper being similar to last year, is very less.

So it would be difficult to comment on %age of marks reqd to get into xyz college.

Regarding the paper, my personal guess would be that bcoz its 3 hours for 120 questions, difficulty level of the exam might go up.
So be ready for some surprises.

Regards

1st/2nd year Students of IIT K:

Kindly note that there are two threads of IIT K i.e:

- Admission queries

[email protected] K

So please try to keep the contents of the two threads separate and please stick to addressing admission queries on this thread. Posting again and again about the events @ IITK breaks the flow of this thread and is annoying for the users who read the thread.

Please take care and avoid overlapping the contents of two threads.
Thanks @the_hate,

I think so registration sites is not open now...at the site mentioned http://jmet.iitk.ac.in/online09/onlinesub.php.
When will the site open..



The appropriate link for online submission of JMET 2009 application is

Both of the above links are properly working as of now.

Unless mentioned officially, we cannot gaurantee that the paper will be tougher or easier.

Probably the best advice could be:

Clear your fundamentals or concepts, Practise a lot and most importantly practise mock tests as it is more important to solve maximum number of questions in the given limited time period.

Infact these tests are framed not only to test your quantitive or verbal skills but also your managerial capacities to quickly evaluate various alternatives in form of various questions and avoid attempting the tricky or time consuming ones and instead concentrate on the ones that you would be able to crack easily or with moderate effort, which requires practise and experience. Given the constraints of time, level of your intelligence and expertise you have to optimise the objective of maximum score.
