Setting up IIMs and Central Universities in smaller cities and less developed Indian States has been a policy of the Indian Government for some time.
It was after a long drawn tussle with neighbouring state Assam that Meghalaya was granted the first IIM in North East India. The government of Meghalaya has allocated around 120 acres (0.49 km2) of land for the construction of a permanent campus in Shillong. A temporary campus has been set up at the Mayurbhanj complex of the North Eastern Hill University for the new IIM. A permanent campus will come in the new Shillong township later.
IIM Shillong follows a unique concept of winter internships. Under this, students go for internships in the months of January and February. Even under the economic downturn, every student was placed and 35 companies across sectors made a total of 79 offers to 64 students. Top recruiters included Deloittes, E&Y, KPMG, PwC, Ogilvy & Mather, Viacom, Warner Brothers, AC Nielsen, Cadbury, Citigroup, HDFC, Standard Chartered, Axis Bank, Tata AIG, SBI Cap, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Siemens, Bosch, Ford, Honda, Lafarge, Hero Group and ONGC .
Admission to will be through the Common Admission Test conducted in November each year. IIM Shillong, like the other IIMs will not have any admission reservations for students from Meghalaya or North East India.
