The first batch of Indian Institute of Management Amritsar has been inaugurated by the Minister for Higher Education & Languages of Punjab, Sardar Surjit Singh Rakhraon August 6, 2015. Prof. Kulbhushan Balooni, director, IIM Kozhikode and mentor director IIM Amritsar, Deans, Faculties and Senior Administrative staff of IIM Kozhikode was present during the inauguration.

The first batch of Post Graduate Programme (PGP) has about 65 students and the classes will start this week from a temporary campus at the Punjab Institute of Technology, Amritsar. The students have been selected on the basis of CAT 2014 scores. The cut off for General category candidates was 96.30 percentile

While addressing the first batch of students, parents and guests, Sardar Surjit Singh Rakhra, Minister of Higher Education and Languages, Government of Punjab, said, “I’m happy to  announce that out of the 6 new IIMs announced in India recently, IIM Amritsar becomes the second to be inaugurated. Punjab can become one of the leading states in education through IIM Amritsar. We must institutionalize IIMs and produce the best of human resources.”

 

He appealed to the students, “Today the students of IITs and IIMs have excelled in various fields. IIMs play an important role to change the image of India.  We also need to provide quality education to the poor, if we are to become a global superpower. I know most of you would be looking forward to a career in the banking or the financial sector, but you must also look at agriculture and rural management.”

Prof. Balooni said, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Ministry of Human Resource Development in initiating the process of starting IIM Amritsar in October last year. The Commitment of Government of Punjab in setting up IIM Amritsar is admirable that sends a signal to other States who are vying for academic institutions of repute.” He further added, “Students are the brick and mortar in building an institute. It is the students who largely shape the academic culture and dignity of the institutions.”

 

IIM Amritsar was given a final go ahead for the course this year upon the finalization of the permanent site for the IIM campus by a committee in late June. IIM Kozhikode, the mentor institute has put together the programme structure, systems and faculty.

 

The institute has been allotted  60 acres of near Manawala on Amritsar-Jalandhar GT Road for the permanent campus which is expected to be ready in the next 2-3 years.

 

IIM Amritsar is one of the 6 new IIMs that the Narendra Modi government proposed in the budget session 2014-15 earlier this year. It is Punjab’s first IIM and is being mentored by IIM Kozhikode.

Hi iam having dyslexia, and government hospital certificate for learning disability, can I get pwd (person with disabilities) quota in iim for mba

Harshita Gupta 18th Jan, 2020
Hey,

IIM has given the criteria for PwD under the " Rights of person with Disabilities Act 2006" and according to it, a person must not have disabilities less than 40% , which means disability should be 40% affective.
The categories of disabilities considered under the Act are as follows:
  • Blindness and low vision.
  • Deaf and hard of hearing.
  • locomotor disability including cerebral palsy, leprosy cured, dwarfism, acid attack victims and muscular dystrophy.
  • autism, intellectual disability, specific learning disability and mental illness.
And few others. So according to the last point mentioned above, you are eligible and might get admission in pwd category if you meet the requirements of scores and cut-off and if you fulfill the criteria.

hope this helps!

Got 95% in 10th, 77.5% IN 12th, 7.72 CGPA(till 6th sem) , ****CAT 2019 Percentile : 82.26 ****[ VARC : 88.25 , DILR : 75.76 , QA: 72.56 ] , Category : Engg. Male [ EWS ] , can I expect call from NIT Trichy or IITs for MBA/PGDP for Academic Year 2020-22 ?

Priyaanka Sarkar Student Expert 8th Jan, 2020

With 82.26% you can be shortlisted at NIT Trichy going by the previous years' cut offs. IITs are going to be tough because IIT Madras had a cut off of 85.11% in 2019 and IIT Kharaghpur also had a cut off of 85% in 2019. With 82.26%, you miss these 2 IITs by a narrow margin. But you have pretty fair chances at NIT Trichy. Few other Colleges that you may have a shot at are IRM Anand, NIT Durgapur, NIAEM Hyderabad, IIT Dhanbad, etc. You can also check our Pathfinder to check the list of all the Colleges that you may have a shot at: https://bschool.careers360.com/pathfinder/cat

Cat = 76.45 percentile. with 65+ sectional. NC-OBC. 10th = 76% 12th = 73.6% B.Com = 73.15% Work ex = 14_15 months. Can I get a call from IIM Amritsar?

Sampriti Student Expert 7th Jan, 2020
With the percentile you're mentioning the chances of getting IIM Amritsar is a little low. Though they require a minimum of 75 percentile for NC OBC candidates but they mostly look at the academic background also. Also considering the fact that you've got work experience for quite some time so it would add onto your profile.

So even if you get a call you'll have to work extremely well in the subsequent selection processes to get a seat. Just give your 100 percent there.

Apart from that you can get other very good Institutes like
  • IMI Delhi
  • IMT Ghaziabad
  • XIMB Bhubaneshwar
  • GIM Goa
  • BIM Trichy and other colleges
Since these are older colleges you'll also get good alumni network and good job opportunities.

All the very best
