Tipani – IIM Visakhapatnam Review

IIM V has an advantage of IIM Bangalore mentorship. IIM Amritsar, IIM Sirmaur, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Nagpur, IMI Delhi, DOMS IIT Madras, JBIMS(way better ROI), Sydenham, SIIB, Great Lakes, TAPMI etc. are closest competitors and options in comparison.

If a Non-IIM is offering better placement opportunities with good infrastructure, then should you reconsider new IIMs? The answer can be yes because some students are IIM tag oriented whereas a quality student will overlook the tag in front of opportunities.

The decision should be based on proper research.
