According to The Economic Times report, IIMA was awarded the number one institute in placement – packages offered employment within three months and company internships – among other institutes worldwide.


IIMC, however, gained the first in ‘careers’ rank, ahead of its counterpart at Bangalore and Ahmedabad. The ranks are based on seniority of graduates and size of company.

IIMA director Prof- Ashish Nanda on the occasion said, "Rankings are useful for benchmarking how we are doing compared to peer institutions. We are also committed to increasing the diversity of the IIMA community and have taken specific steps, including introduction of supernumerary seats for international students and revisions to our admissions process towards achieving this objective."
