IIM fee structure and seats - If your dream B-school is one of the IIMs, it’s not just the Common Admission Test (CAT), Written Ability Test (WAT), Personal Interview (PI) or Group Discussion (GD) that you have to deal with. You also have to keep in mind that studying at one of the 20 IIMs comes with a cost that can dig a deep hole either in your pocket or your parents’ pocket. And with the recent hike in the fee by many IIMs, the management education with IIM tag is going to cost even more. Although there are loan facilities available to pay the fee, you need to check whether it’s going with your financial condition or not. Hence, while planning for MBA admission, MBA aspirants seek information on IIM fee structure and seats. CAT toppers who have been shortlisted by the older IIMs including IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Bangalore, IIM Calcutta, IIM Lucknow, IIM Kozhikode, and IIM Indore, can expect a good ROI (Return on Investment) but it may not be the same with newer IIMs.

Few IIMs have either increased the fees or have processed the increase. MBA candidates had to pay around 5-17 per cent more for the 2018-20 batch. Inflationary pressure and high operational cost including infrastructure cost and faculty salaries are the main reasons cited behind the fee hike by the officials of IIMs. Candidates paid Rs. 80,000-2 lakh more for their MBAs in the academic year 2018-20. IIM Ahmedabad, IIM Calcutta, IIM Bangalore, IIM Ranchi, IIM Trichy, IIM Indore, IIM Rohtak, and IIM Amritsar have already announced the fee hike.
