  10. SIR i wanted info about any 4 or 5 years degree level course or programme on managment(excluding the ipm course) in any business school india and if any such course doesnt exist than please give me LIST of top institutes where BBA course is offered

    • No Doubt…. Next it will be More Prestigious Exam In India Almost Equal to IIT so Obviously Cut-off will be increase

  11. Wat wud u people propose if somebody is already doing BTEK from NIT Kurukshetra and has been selected here??
    Dnt worry abt the interests..only wat course wud be better for a person whos equally inclined towards both ares.

  12. You should definitely join. Cos its not an opportunity you’ll get often. I have taken opinions from a lot of people and all say take it. my advice. take it!

    • Hey Ameya!
      The issue remains the same- 5 years from now, we’ll all be competing against CA+MBA or Engineers+MBA of their ‘popular’ flagship program in the placements. And at the time when the best B schools in the world are making experience compulsory for MBA programs, I guess IPM is lot more than just risky!

  13. hi
    are the shortlisted students planning to do any distant learning program during your 1st 3 years in iim indore to obtain a degree??
    i am also selected for ipm but i am confused whether to go for it or not??

    • this is unique initiative by iim indore,in the coming years more iim will be coming with this integrated course`its ur personal choice to go for distant learning course,btw if u do best in this course u will be overwhelmed by the job prospects,every course whether gud or bad have a beginning,a story for u ,an engg exam started 8 or 9 yrs back apprx over 1 lakh ppl sat for it as ppl were in dilemma as u r just now,in 2011 over 13 lakh ppl sat for the exam n the exam is AIEEE,hope u got my point,all the best

    • Hey pooja! great to know that you are selected! Congrats! regarding your dilemma, think over and take an informed call. Assess all the possibilities and weigh your risks, at the end of the day, no matter who opposes, if you are convinced about the reach and success of the proposed course, and if your heart says this is where you have to be, then none of the other’s comments or questions would be of any significance.

      So wishing you my best in this regard
      Decide for your own self patiently
      Personally this is indeed a great opportunity
      So hoping for an optimistic response from you too,….
      Nivetha

  14. i am in my grade 12 now studying PCM. I would like to know how the program is going on and about the admission dates for intake of students in the upcoming year 2012

  15. Hi anyone got selected from Chennai area? i also request candidates who got selected to share info on bank guarantee. Which bank is willing to issue and what are the collateral accepted, asap.

  16. Does anyone have the link to a pdf that gave a detailed explanation date/month-wise about the programme? It was one of the links in the AT/PI shortlisted access page. When one opened their account at the AT/PI shortlist thingy then it was right next to the ‘congratulations’ bit. I think it was labelled ‘Programme Information’ or something like that. It had a huge table giving info about the programme. Not the 6 – 7 columns wala. It was around 2-3 pages long.

  17. kya yaaar my AT went so so okey types although interview was good…not much umeeedd but still saale aaj nikaal dete result to better tha…fish man…chalo 14 hi sai…

    • to correct you in short its not 19lakhs it is 25lakhs. if u include 7000per month hostel fees. and the bank can support u max of 15lakhs and u have to pay 15000 per month as an interst.

    • well u be newer uve gotto pay for ur lodging n ol….was jus tellin u abt d programme fee…wat is more important a question is are we going to be placed in a way to meet our xpectations….@lst to be able to pay back the loan…

  27. HELLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO…..
    What the hell…..who said am fake..and when did i take any interview…????????
    Am 18..who would allow me to take one…???
    And rahul i said cpt man..cpt is a child’s play yaar but ipcc or pcc is what really counts…and Ameya good for you if you are selected but puhleeezzzz dont malign me like this…and what are you all talking about…????
    Earthquake in Gangtok and Sikkim but aftershocks on career mitra blog…what’s happening..can anyone tell..???????

    • @gaurav i waz wondering why do you exaggerate so much and argue by putting sum news buff and dont admit ur mistakes. seriously man if u are 18 behave like an 18 not like a kiddo.and none has ever mentioned you as fake. regarding education all is gr8 and every work is gr8. so plz stop assuming airs and plz dnt draw long bows. or else am afraid it may end in fiasco and i felt gantok and shikim are same were shikim z the state and gantok is the capital. and plz dnt play ur words on others sentiment cz the disaster has been high and is equally painful.

  28. Hi….. rahul, neha, sameya, plz can i get any one of urs contact number. i need to discus director’s letter with u all guys. yeah will u plz call me on this no. 08051978575

    • Yeah Rahul, although the program schedule looks very promising, but what good would it be if it isn’t executed well?
      Anyway, Any idea as to when does the venue comes out? If they’ve already come out, what’s the venue in Delhi? Plus, please post the link!

  29. rahul yaar if i were at your place i would have gone with the first option..but still it would be fun if we get through this and be a part of this thing…i am going through the maths material i got at the time of my cpt…i think that would be enough..and for english..just going through bbc of my class 12th..dont have much time at this stage so i’m relying more on PI rather than AT..!!
    you tell..where in delhi..which school??
    any of your friends who got through..??

      • Right! He said many unprofessional things and said he has taken 100’s of interviews right? You are an HRM manager gaurav, aren’t you? I was from dav school and none of my friends made through it. you r saying that you wouldn’t join this program.. if you’d be doin CA. i see you already have CA books ;)

        • Hey rahul
          I appreciate the director coming out with all this. The program structure is really well planned and a lot of thought has been put into making it. We will definitely be amazing managers at the end of the course.:)

    • well i am not shortlisted but this true you are really fake from the beginning or you wer trying to divert the masses from this competition so that you can have the cream. Good shot GAURAV SEGAL. :D yet all the best

  30. yipeee…!!!
    got shortlisted…does any one know how many OBC candidates have been shortlisted…becoz i am really tensed about the pi!!!!
    is there any chance of me getting selected????/

  31. just out of curiosity Saumya n Rahul…you guys have done so well already in CA..why are you switching to this course..i am quite curious to know…:-oo

    • Cuz my plan was to pursue CAT after CA.. and this opportunity is better as this is 5 year management education.. That’s why. Are you doing any preparation for AT or PI?

  32. my centre is Delhi too…hey where in delhi any idea…and do inform if you get any mail or sms…its gonna be fun now…competition at its apex.. GAME ON..!!!

    And Rahul your dad’s skepticism is understandable but is incongruent in this case. Such fraud’s happen at pvt. universities and colleges.So chill..!!
    The possible reason for delay could be server problem ; difficulty in processing the applications or NON-CURABLE CONSTIPATION…hahaha
    And SAUMYA I thought you wouldn’t return…:-p

    • Hahaha Saumya is back..:P anyways, jokes apart, i still cant understand what kind of problem is this.. no problem can take 4-5 days.. it was supposed to be out on 13th.. its so frustrating!! :(

      • I have heard of the same case.. But don’t know much details.. Someone put request of applications for a post and just collected application money delaying date of result and just went off with money.. I think this is the same case may be

    • they are celebrating all the festivals in there like inagruation and book fair
      so they are not getting time
      whats their priority festivals and fairs or new course and future of pupils waiting for the F*****g List

      they are playing with our precious time and organizing book fairs and using our money i.e. 1000*5000 = 50,00,000 rupees
      anyone can organise fairs

  39. Shortlist for IPM 2011 will be announced latest by September 19, 2011

    Because tomorrow is Sunday and so no work and today is Saturday means less work.. So we can start our countdown from 19th September onwards

    • Right saumya.. this is simply horrible!! they could not work on weekdays, how can we expect them to work on weekends? even i am thinking to continue my course.. its no point wasting my precious time like this. they don’t know time management, how would they teach us management……

  40. yeah…….. u r right rahul
    that is their monopoly…..

    Y will they care for us. we are in tension nt they

    NAME OF BOOK-> “IIM-I;WE CARE FOR YOU..(haha..you really think so:-p)
    1.How to create anxiety for new course.
    2.How to pretend that undergrads are respected…lol
    3.How to make people anxious and eventually hysterical.
    4.Its not what you are told,Its about what you get.
    5.Common its an IIM..deal with it or goodbye.
