Prof-Shailendra-Nigam Dear Recruiters,

Greetings from IIM Nagpur!

In spite of being one of the relatively new IIMs, IIM Nagpur has experienced an accelerated growth in academics and placements over the last several years. A surge in the demand of IIM Nagpur’s flagship two-year Masters of Business Administration (MBA) program reflects that. The MBA program of the institute has reached new heights by the commitment and hard work of its faculty, students, and administration. A high growth rate and being recognized as one of the fastest growing institutions in the country has helped the institute to attract many first-time recruiters.

The enthusiasm exhibited by the students to strive for excellence and to add value to the organization where they work is phenomenal and contagious. They have proven themselves to be one of the most valuable assets to their organizations. Our students are nurtured in a culture of innovation, hard work, and continuous process improvement. Besides having in-depth domain knowledge, our students possess high levels of emotional intelligence, adaptability, resilience, agility, and problem-solving skills. Besides financial and marketing management courses, courses such as decision making, strategy, ERP, advanced analytics, risk management, industry 4.0, and information systems management have greatly helped our students to give high quality results. In addition, our students have developed strong skills in collaboration with multiple stakeholders, strategic thinking, innovation, teamwork and data analysis and interpretation, to name a few.

The institute prides itself on having faculty members who come from premier institutes of the country as well as abroad. The institute has a unique blend of highly experienced and young faculties. Institute faculties have academic collaborations with prestigious global institutes, such as Harvard Business School (Boston), GARP (USA), INU (South Korea),University of Utah, International University of Japan and Simon Fraser University (Canada). With a significant experience of teaching abroad, faculty members enrich students with their global experience and help them to learn about the recent developments taking place in the business world globally. The institute offers a good mix of world-class academic practices and cutting-edge career enrichment exercises.

Over the years, prominent industry leaders and key senior executives have enthusiastically participated in student driven interactive seminars and shared their insights on various critical issues, such as recent developments taking place in the business world, key business challenges, and expectations from the aspiring managers. Industry-institution interaction events, such as ILLUME, Utkarsh, and Upkrit, conducted at the institute are aimed at combining rigorous academic scholarship with diverse organizational experience and practices. Such events help our students to gain practical knowledge of various strategies that leaders and managers are adopting to run businesses in the rapidly changing environment.

Our International Immersion program, which is running in collaboration with institutes from Asian and Middle Eastern countries, has immensely helped our students to learn about the global business practices.

We extend our warm welcome to you and your organization towards building a mutually beneficial long-term relationship, which is based on trust and integrity, with IIM Nagpur. We can enrich our relationship through various activities, such as summer internships, campus recruitment for final placements, guest sessions and live projects both in person and in the virtual mode. We look forward to opportunities to Collaborate with You!

Warm Regards,
Prof. Shailendra Nigam
