FAQs

When is IIM Sambalpur starting its academic session?

IIM Sambalpur will start its first academic session in September 2015.

Why is IIM Sambalpur asking candidates who have already applied to confirm their interest for admission to PGP?

In CAT-2014, some of the candidates had expressed their interest for “IIM in Odisha”. The decision on the location of the IIM at Sambalpur has been taken only recently. Further, during the intervening period, many applicants may have already taken up other offers of admission. Given the relatively short time available for IIM Sambalpur admissions, the institute would like to engage aspirants who are interested in pursuing the PGP of IIM at Sambalpur.

If I confirm my interest in IIM Sambalpur, does it affect my position in other IIMs?

No. The admission offers in each IIM are independent of others and therefore accepting or rejecting an offer from any other IIM will not affect your chances in IIM Sambalpur, or vice versa.

I got an interview call from other IIM(s) but did not attend. Will I still be considered for admission at IIM Sambalpur?

Yes, but only if you confirm your interest in response to the email that is being sent to you. This email is being sent only to those aspirants who have taken CAT-2014, indicated their interest in being considered for IIM at Odisha and who meet the shortlist criteria given on the website of IIM Sambalpur.

What are the fees for PGP at IIM Sambalpur?

The tuition fees for IIM Sambalpur will be around Rs. 10 lakhs for two years. Exact amount and details of breakup will be given in the admission offer. Leading banks routinely offer educational loans at concessional terms as per Govt. of India guidelines for all IIMs including IIM Sambalpur.

How long will IIM Indore mentor IIM Sambalpur?

IIM Indore (IIMI) will mentor all activities at IIM Sambalpur till it moves to its permanent campus, or IIM Sambalpur is able to handle these activities entirely on its own, whichever is earlier.

Who will be teaching at IIM Sambalpur? Has it recruited good faculty members?

Recruiting full-time faculty takes time. During the mentorship period and while IIM Sambalpur’s own faculty are recruited, faculty members from IIMI will be delivering courses at IIM Sambalpur. This may include a few visiting faculty selected by IIMI to meet their standards. The overall design, quality and delivery of PGP will be up to the expected standards and with direct involvement of IIMI. You should, therefore, expect to see some of the best faculty members in the country today.

IIM Sambalpur is a new institute. How far will it be accepted by the industry? It has a direct bearing on my future career prospects.

It is important to assess the rigour and quality of inputs received during the 2 years of stay in PGP. Although IIM Sambalpur is new, its initial operations are being handled by IIMI, which has nearly two decades of imparting some of the best programmes in management education. In course of time, IIM Sambalpur will undoubtedly evolve its own distinct brand. It should also be borne in mind that although the first job can be greatly influenced by the brand name, subsequent career growth is strongly a function of the quality of training and learning received during the two years of PGP. IIM Sambalpur would start off strong on both parameters.

What else is special about IIMI that may affect IIM Sambalpur?

Apart from being one of the top management institutes in the country for more than 15 years, IIMI was the first amongst IIMs that embarked on an expansion of batch size in its PGP. It has been imparting PGP education to a 450-student batch size for the last five years. Besides, it has experience of teaching students at campuses located outside of Indore. These include campuses at UAE and at Mumbai. It has done a lot of work in several dimensions of management education. These include full-time and part-time executive programmes, management development progrmammes, in-company training, faculty development programmes, e-governance, and defence. Anyone interested in pursuing management education will find all the ingredients of a good management education for IIM Sambalpur’s PGP.

How much do I have to pay while confirming my admission?

The amount is not likely to exceed Rs. 50,000. This amount will be balanced against payment of tuition fees in future. Of this only Rs 1000 will be retained as per GOI guidelines if the person does not actually join the institute. Details of exact amount and mode of payment will be sent with the offer of admission.
