Indian Institute of Management Indore is a state funded management institute in Indore, Madhya Pradesh. Instituted in 1998, IIM Indore is the sixth addition to the prestigious IIM family. Known as "Prabandh Shikhar" or "Peak of Management", the scenic 193 acre (781,000 m²) campus is located atop a small hill on the outskirts of Indore. The institute has been consistently ranked among the top business schools in India.
The essence of management, IIM I believes, lies in managing one's own ambitions and forging ahead consciously. "A strong theoretical foundation is the basis of good corporate practice" this, coupled with a grounding in management as it is practiced, is the underlying theme of the flagship Post Graduate Programme (PGP). Spanning two years the programme is benchmarked against similar programmes of the best business schools in the world. Experiential learning, IT orientation, and social sensitivity are some of the unique features of the programme.
The institute was conceived by the then Human Resource Development minister Arjun Singh. The institute was established here to give an impetus to the management education in the central region of the country, and partially influenced by the fact that Mr. Arjun Singh hails from this state. The old temporary campus was located in Rajendranagar in Indore till 2002, when the institute moved to its current state of the art campus situated on the Rau-Pithampur road close to the Pithampur Special Economic Zone.

The foundation stone of the new campus was laid by Mukesh Ambani. The sprawling 193 acre campus is amongst the biggest for management institutes in the country. A large part of the campus still remains unused as the institute is relatively young. Expansion plans include building more hostels to accommodate the growing number of post graduate and executive students, a state of the art sports complex and residential quarters for doctoral students.Please Go To Next Page-------------
The admissions to IIM Indore take place through the Common Admission Test (CAT) conducted by the IIMs. The CAT is a very competitive test conducted for admission to the IIMs and is considered one of the most competitive exams in the world, with a success rate of less than one in a hundred. Based on the performance in CAT, each institute independently shortlists prospective candidates and conducts group discussions and personal interviews.
The number of aspirants taking the test has been increasing every year, with more than 270,000 sitting for CAT-2008 to compete for around 1600 seats in the IIMs, which makes it even more selective than all the Ivy League Universities put together. Even with a top 1% score, a candidate must also successfully clear the stringent group and individual interviews.
While the other IIMs have been known to have fixed cut-offs for a candidate to get a GD-PI call, IIM Indore sets the minimum a little lower for the sectional cut-offs, while giving weightage for the candidate's profile, be it in academics, cocurricular, extracurricular, or work experience.
The overall percentile to get a GD-PI call still remains however at almost 99 percentile. While this has the obvious benefit of widening the pool of available candidates, it also means that the final batch that gets admitted has students from diverse fields, experiences and industries, providing the latent advantage of participative learning from each other.--------------Please Go To Next Page-------------
