Hi, thank u guys for creating this thread. I was looking for it.

I have few queries :

How is the placement scenario at IIM indore. I have read in the brochure that placement is a student driven activity. Does it means that college does not provides placement assistance ?

Hi, Could you please advise if there is an online application form that can be submitted? Thanks.

I am giving GMAT on 24th on this month. Hope for a respectable score to apply for IIM Indore EPGP.. Will let u guys know my profile with my score to access my chances of making through.

Hi, 1. IIMI site mentions that 12 students I.e. 25%of students of 2013-14 did not get any job offer till July 2014...could u explain on this? Batch must have passed out in sept 14.. So they didn't get offer of their liking or placement scenario is gloomy? 2. Also, I sent a message on FB group to suggest some Alumni, with whom can get in touch to know more about prospect..but haven't got any response. Could you help with that?

How to submit the Application form? Should this be handwritten? Application is in PDF form, which am not able to edit.

Hi All,

Received a mailer from IIM-I for the last round of it's EPGP course. Placement stats were given in the brochure. On scrutinizing the stats, I found that out of a total 47 seats , 12 students were not able to get placed. 

I am sure there is more to this. Was it due to candidates profile, strong preferences, subdues job market or anything else ?

Would like to know the reality.


Just 12 followers are minimal activity in the grp.. ???
