Indian Institutes of Management

The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) are India's premier management institutes that also conduct research and provide consultancy services in the field of management to various sectors of the Indian economy. They were created by the Indian Government [ Technical Education ] ] with the aim of identifing the brightest intellectual talent available in the student community of India and training it in the best management techniques available in the world, to ultimately create a pool of elite world class managers to manage and lead the various sections of the Indian economy. IIMs play a leadership role in the nation’s managerial manpower development and carry out research in emerging areas. These Institutes are recognized as premier management institutions, comparable to the best in the world for teaching, research and interaction with industries. IIMs being "Role Models" have shared knowledge and skills with other institutions to improve their quality and standards in management education. IIMs have earned an international reputation for the quality of their alumni.

The IIMs are considered top business schools in India. [ [ The Hindu : Buzzing about a B-school ] ] All the IIMs are completely autonomous institutes owned and financed by the Central Government of India. In order of establishment, the IIMs are located at Kolkata (Calcutta), Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Lucknow, Kozhikode (Calicut), Indore, and Shillong. They offer post-graduate courses in management (equivalent to an MBA), fellowship programmes in management (equivalent to PhD), executive MBA and industry based programmes. IIMs actively carry out research and consultancy for the industry, including the needs of non-corporate and under-managed sectors such as agriculture, rural development, public systems management, energy, health education, habitat, etc. The IIMs also offer various other management training programs as well as part-time MBA programmes for various organisations and individuals.

Admission process

The CAT (Common Admission Test) conducted by the IIMs is a very competitive test conducted for admission to around 1250 graduate programs in management at the six campuses, and is usually considered one of the most competitive exams in the worldFact|date=July 2007, with a success rate of about one in a thousand [ [ Rediff News 2008] ] . Each institute conducts group discussions and personal interviews to evaluate the students shortlisted after the test. Around 300,000 students compete for less than 1350 general seats (out of 1700 total seats) in the IIMs (2008 figures [ [ Rediff News 2008] ] ) which makes it even more selective than all the top US business schools put togetherFact|date=June 2007. The overall acceptance rate ranges from around 0.01% to 0.04% of the applicants depending on the rank of the individual IIM, compared with the acceptance rate of around 5-10% in the top US schools, e.g. 14.3% for Harvard University#Admissions and 7.9% for Stanford University in 2006. Even with a top 1% score, a candidate must also successfully take the equally stringent group and individual interviews. The remaining 23% of seats are reserved for candidates belonging to Scheduled Castes and Tribes and PWD. The average percentile of students admitted through these reserved categories [ [ Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad (IIMA) ] ] is lesser than the percentile scores of the General class students, which generally hovers around 99 percentile.
