Placement Chairperson’s Message

Dear Recruiters,

Warm Wishes from IIM Nagpur!

IIM Nagpur has experienced an accelerated growth in academics and placements in just three years of its inception under the mentorship of IIM Ahmedabad. The surge in demand for the two-year PGP programme in management is a direct implication of combined efforts on the parts of faculty, students and administration. The higher growth rates and increasing recognition as an emerging IIM have attracted many first time recruiters to the institute.

The enthusiasm of the students to strive for excellence and value addition is both phenomenal and highly contagious here. Our students are nurtured with the culture of innovation to improve process efficiency and have proved to be one of the most valuable assets for their firms. Apart from extensive financial and marketing management courses, others such as decision making, strategy, ERP systems, advanced analytics, risk management and information systems management have greatly helped our students produce results worth mentioning. Our students have an extremely good sense of team spirit in which brainstorming ideas and arguments help one simplify challenging situations.

The faculties here are from the premium institutes of our country and have academic connect with international organizations such as Harvard Business School (Boston), GARP (USA), INU (South Korea), International University of Japan and Simon Fraser University (Canada). Having conducted guest lectures at various International universities, they enrich the students with their global experience which helps them understand and identify significant industry related core and elective courses better. The institute comprises a good mix of world-class academic practices and up to date career development exercises.

Prominent industry veterans and key executives have actively taken part in student interactive seminars to share their insights on the latest business challenges and expectations from our budding managers. An industry-institution interaction conclave, ILLUME, attempts to couple the rigorous academic environment with diverse organizational experience through practical knowledge of strategies professionals are adopting to address the present changes.

Field Immersion Programme (FIP) is a unique platform for our students to practically implement their classroom learnings by working closely with the leadership as consultants to local SME’s and helping them overcome business problems. Our International Immersion tie-ups with Asian and Middle East countries have immensely aided our students to keep up with the global work environment.

We extend our warm welcome to the organizations towards building a long-term relationship of trust and integrity with IIM Nagpur through summer internships, campus recruitment for final placements, guest sessions and live projects both in person and with the use of digital tools.
