Profile of the 2011-13 IIMC's PGP Batch: Various Interesting Factors


IIM Calcutta campus, Kolkata, July 26, 2011: The important factor of IIM Calcutta's 2011-13 batch is that the Institute has been able to meet the MHRD's directive to fulfill the 27% OBC quota in admissions when they meet the target in registering 462 students, which happens to be the largest batch across IIMs. The batch of 2011-2013 (a.k.a Batch of 48/18; 48th batch PGDM, 18th batch PGDCM) has 33 girl students (7.14%) and the rest are males. The batch comprises of 26 overseas students too. This batch will exclusively carry the tag of being the batch of the country's premier most Management Instititute's Golden Jubilee Year Batch as you are well aware that the Year 2011 mark the Golden Jubilee Year of IIM Calcutta. The Fellow Programme in Management, Institute's other prestigious academic programme registered 16 students including 6 girl students.

As a matter of fact, the students from IIM Calcutta typically have a history of academic brilliance displayed all through their educational years. Every year, the best students from India's premier institutes are admitted to IIM Calcutta. This year too, a healthy 23% of students in the PGP1 batch have received an IIT degree. 13% of students are from NITs, while 55% of students have studied in other Indian engineering colleges. The batch of 48/18 comprises of 93% students with an engineering background whereas 2% of students have a pure sciences background. The rest of the students have a degree in medicine, commerce, management or arts. It is interesting to know that about 4% of students have previously studied in colleges abroad, like NUS and NTU (Singapore) and Queensland University (Australia).


A majority of students of IIMC hold degrees in electronics and computer science. This year we also have some students who have joined in from medical school.


This year, 16% of the students have experience in finance and consulting, the preferred careers of graduates of this institute, before joining IIM Calcutta,


This year we have quite a few students who have started an entrepreneurial venture. Some notable students include Hariharan V., who has prior experience in farming and owns a field of his own. Anupam Kumar, who currently studies at IIM-C, is a product of Patna's famous “Super 30” group, has started out on his venture called “Escape”, which aims at educating disadvantaged students in English. Ashish Baboo has also started a school to children from economically challenged backgrounds, while Tejas Padalkar and Anuj Agarwal's companies operate in the metal manufacturing sector.


The students above are very excited to be part of the batch of 2013, and can't wait to discuss their ideas with peers and faculty alike so that their ventures mature into full-fledged organizations. 


And the last, but not the least is that for the first time in the history of IIMs that a student of 100 per cent blindness got admission for a PGDM course at IIM Calcutta this year.
