It has been seen that many candidates tend to mark a large number of institutes in the CAT application, to minimize their risk in the initial stages of IIM admission process.

Recruiting full-time faculty is a fairly long and an on-going process. IIMN's own faculty members have started joining and as the joining and recruitment process continues, faculty members from IIMA have been delivering courses at IIM Nagpur. This set of faculty also includes a few visiting faculty who meet our exacting standards. Almost all of these have also taught at IIMA or other leading institutes as visiting faculty. The overall design, quality and delivery of PGP continues to be of very high standards, with direct involvement of IIMA. You should, therefore, expect to see some of the best faculty members in the country teaching at IIMN.

Over the last two years, industry is showing increasing acceptance of IIMN graduates.

This helps students to think about various options they may wish to explore for their future careers.

It should also be borne in mind that the first job can be strongly influenced by the brand name; subsequent career growth is strongly a function of the quality of training and learning received during the two years of PGP.

There are two things that can be said to be special about IIMN. First, being mentored by IIMA, it carries some of the same flavours as IIMA, by working in a broad range on domains. IIMA is the only IIM that is truly an institute of management, rather than an institute of only business management. It has done a lot of work in several sectors other than business management as well, including agriculture, social, telecom, e-governance, infrastructure, entrepreneurship and health services. Therefore, people interested in application of management knowledge to any of these sectors will find IIM Nagpur's PGP a good place to be.

Second, IIMN has strong field immersion modules during the first year itself. This allows students to explore many ground realities and problems through first-hand experiences, and connect them to concepts and cases that they study in class.
