Good Placement anticipated

IIM Nagpur shares “History is important because it allows us to assess the rigour and quality of inputs received during the 2 years of stay in PGP. While IIM Nagpur is new, since its initial operations are being handled completely by IIM A, more than 53 years of IIM A's history of excellence in management education becomes directly applicable to IIM Nagpur. In due course of time, IIM Nagpur will undoubtedly evolve its own distinct brand.”
Anticipating to achieve excellence in short time, IIM Nagpur assures “ It should also be borne in mind that the first job can be greatly influenced by the brand name, subsequent career growth is strongly a function of the quality of training and learning received during the two years of PGP. IIM Nagpur would start off strong on both parameters.”
Next 3 years at IIM Nagpur
Since IIM Nagpur will continue being mentored by IIM A for about 3 years, it could be the 1st and 2nd batches of IIM Nagpur that would be benefitted most as they will have brand IIM A with them all the time.
The pedagogy, case study pattern, project work and all other ingredients of academics for which IIM Ahmedabad is known, will impart a better learning environment at IIM Nagpur. Students, despite studying at IIM Nagpur may expect to be groomed on the study pattern of IIM A.
With IIM A mentoring and shaping the future of IIM Nagpur, the work of IIM A done in several sectors apart from business management like agriculture, social, telecom, e-governance, infrastructure, entrepreneurship and health services will sure prove to be the mile stone during the learning and placement at IIM Nagpur.
