Prof. Kulbhushan Balooni, Director (In-charge), Indian Institute of Management Kozhikode & Mentor Director, IIM Amritsar, said, “Increasing the batch intake from 49 to 105 in the second year of inception, had its own challenges. There were lot of speculations regarding this move but we strongly believed that with bigger batch strength, learning will be better, as this increases competitive nature among them. Perseverance for hard work and zeal to succeed among the student fraternity along with the strong support from IIM K, the mentor institution, made this giant leap possible. The resounding success of this placement season stands testimony to the student quality of the institute”.
