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.
