Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode (IIM K)
Location & Infra:
Indian Institute of Management, Kozhikode (IIM K) is built over 100 acres of land, on the slopes of the Western Ghats in suburban Kozhikode. Although the campus is picturesque and beautiful, the inaccessibility of the location is often blamed for the fact that IIMK doesn’t attract faculty as good as Ahmedabad and Bangalore.
The classrooms are well-maintained and spacious, though, and the hostels are really good as well. The library is said to be fully automated and very well-equipped. IIM Kozhikode has a unique rain-water harvesting system, which takes care of all their water needs.
Fees & Placements:
IIM Kozhikode charges Rs. 9 Lakhs as fees for its PGDM course

Faculty & Pedagogy:
The faculty is highly qualified and highly experienced. Although most of the faculty is visiting, the quality is not compromised. The course is more practical and case based approach is implemented. IIM K being the new and located away from the industrial belt has a different approach from the other IIMs.
Crowd & Campus Life:
Although the crowd consists predominantly of engineers, they aren’t the stereotypical ‘drowned in books’ kind. There are parties every week, and they celebrate each and every festival enthusiastically. K-dio is the unique in-house radio station at IIMK, a brilliant initiative, and it plays music from various genres all night long. ‘Face-off’.
IIM K has been regularly organising international conferences. It has organised more than 20 conferences and many in collaboration with internationally reputed schools.
IIM K has signed an MoU regarding the exchange of students with Yale University. IIMK has Foreign Exchange Programmes in partnership with business schools like Bocconi University (Italy), Copenhagen Business School (Denmark), ESCP-EAP (France), European Business School (Germany), Jönköping International Business School (Sweden).
Global Power house brands like Deutche bank, Citibank, softdrinks majors, MNCs and even a top tier IPL team, have made summer internship offers to 343 students of its PGP programme. Some popular marketing firms that recruited IIM-Kozhikode students in large number are Hindustan Unilever Limited, ITC limited and Marico. Students of finance field were picked up by American Express, Deutsche Bank, Citi Bank, and Goldman Sachs. Companies from other sectors, like general management, HR and consulting also visited the company.
It’s an IIM, so you have a special place in the corporate world, naturally. But aside from the obvious positives, something that may draw you here is... The view is Breathtaking!
One of the new IIMs but none the less it is an IIM and worth going for.
