Message from Chairperson - CDS


On behalf of IIM Visakhapatnam, I extend a warm welcome to you as potential recruiters of the first batch of the postgraduate programme. The first batch of IIMV has enjoyed the benefit of being able to strike new ground and set new norms on social, cultural and extra-curricular aspects unshackled by any past practices, while benefitting from the direct mentorship of IIM Bangalore on academic rigour.

The core courses of the PGP at IIMV are exactly the same as at IIMB and are being taught by either current or retired faculty of IIMB or those who have taught as adjunct faculty at IIMB, and the faculty were impressed by the quality of students and their active participation in class. Like in IIMB, the IIMV students also had a choice of three electives in Term-3 of the first year. Plenty of elective courses are being offered in the second year without any registration caps and almost all potential courses that were voted highly by IIMV students have been and will continue to be offered at IIMV. The batch also visited either China or Japan for a one-week international immersion between the terms.

The first batch of IIMV also had its summer placement selections at the IIMB campus along with IIMB students, giving them the opportunity to be selected by a larger pool of companies that participate in IIMB placements. Regular IIMB recruiters were impressed with the IIMV student profiles as well as interview performance. Some selected IIMV students exclusively and have also made pre-placement offers. We look forward to help you meet your recruitment objectives and reduce your recruitment search costs by helping you select from the pool of high quality PGP students from IIM Visakhapatnam.
