The Indian Institute of Management Calcutta (IIMC) was established as the first national institute for Post-Graduate studies and Research in Management by the Government of India in November 1961 in collaboration with Alfred P. Sloan School of Management (MIT), the Government of West Bengal, The Ford Foundation and Indian industry. During its initial years, several prominent faculty formed part of its nucleus, including Jagdish Sheth, J. K. Sengupta, among others.

Over the years, IIMC has grown into a mature institution with global reputation, imparting high quality management education. It has been playing a pioneering role in professionalising Indian management through its Post Graduate and Doctoral level programs, Executive Training Programs, Research and Consulting Activities.

Today, the institute serves as an autonomous body, continually evolving to meet its goals in an ever-changing business environment.

The vision of the Institute is to emerge as an International Centre of Excellence in all facets of Management Education, rooted in Indian ethos and societal values. Over the past four decades, IIM Calcutta has blossomed into one of Asia's finest Business Schools. Its strong ties to the business community make it an effective mechanism for the promotion of professional management practices in Indian organizations. Today, IIM Calcutta attracts the best talent in India - a melting pot of academia, industry and research. The best and brightest young men and women pursue its academic programs.

The residential experience is a foundation of the IIMC culture, which includes teamwork and the building of lifelong relationships. Students and partners live on or near campus, making social events and shared activities a way of life.

From our core curriculum of general management skills to advanced electives and seminars, our students have exceptional access to a preeminent faculty of thought leaders, all of whom teach in the MBA program.

To our students, we offer intellectual depth, abundant resources, and individual attention. To our alumni, we provide a lifelong connection to excellence. To the world, we have a commitment to ethical and responsible leadership.

Changes when compared to last year -

  • The min CAT sectional percentile requirement for DA candidates during the shortlisting stage has been reduced by 5 percentile points.
  • The work ex points buckets have been changed ( though the overall weightage for work ex during the final selection process remains the same ).

  1. Shortlisting candidates for WAT/PI round.
  2. Final Selection of candidates post WAT/PI round

During the first stage, initially a pool of candidates who satisfy the following minimum CAT 2017 percentiles are considered.

To conclude, one important observation about this year's selection process is that the total weightage for parameters which are controllable ( CAT,WAT and PI ) in the final selection stage has been kept at a whopping 88%. This ensures that the applicants, who do not have a good academic profile or work experience can still aspire to join IIM Calcutta by preparing well for CAT 2017, WAT and PI rounds.
