In my quest of finding a quality institute which will add to my industry experience and enhance my profile to surpass the competitive requirements of today's dynamic business world, I found IIM Kashipur meeting my aspirations .I was planning to do executive MBA for quite some time and was excited and exhilarated when I got my admission letter for IIM Kashipur executive program.
I observed it was just the beginning of the upward trend of my learning curve. IIM Kashipur introduced me to concept of various aspects of management in detail, the experienced professors here take you through the entire evolution of management topics right up to the implementation strategies on ground. The case studies-based approach takes a deep diving outlook towards understanding the problem and connecting the dots to reach towards the best possible solution.
The energy and enthusiasm of faculties here takes the learning experience to altogether different zone and can be attributed to the freshness of this relatively new IIM.
I am currently pursuing studies in interpreting business results through Analytics and the facilities and support that I am getting is that of highest standards confirming to the vision and mission of IIM Kashipur.

"A jaunt frilled with emotions" summarises my stay at this place IIM Kashipur - full of healthy competitions, a touchstone of knowledge, plethora of learning and profound emotions
These two years have metamorphosed into a smart negotiator, disciplined individual, ethical and sound business professional.
This institute fostered a strong attitude and helped me inculcate an approach which creates a strong vertical differentiation.
The curriculum, position of responsibility, corporate competition, group projects, sports, clubs, presentation and (fun with friends), constant race against time and comfort prepared me for the real fight.
The state-of-the-art amenities created a conducive environment which bolstered my learning experience. This institute is simply a haven for those who keep demanding more from life.

From being an introvert walking into the campus with the fear of competition and corporate world, to becoming an extrovert walking out of the campus with good corporate skills and full confidence of competing anywhere, that's how IIM Kashipur changed my life. 'It's not just the system but also the people into it which contribute to your success and growth' - probably one of the biggest lessons of my life I learnt at IIM Kashipur.
I am thankful to not just the curriculum which helped me become ready and relevant for the corporate world (even grab a PPO) but also to my teachers and friends who were always a part of this beautiful journey with me and helped me survive, succeed and shine.

Before I came to IIM Kashipur, I had certain expectations on what I wanted to gain from the program. With the benefit of hindsight, I can say without a doubt that the actual experience was much more profound and enriching than what I could have ever imagined.

The two years of IIM Kashipur that I spent in the most stimulating and picturesque environs, has not only helped me gain the necessary knowledge and skills but also ushered a unique vigour to set out and embrace transformation.
