IIM Trichy: ROI, Placement, Campus Life, Eligibility, Selection Procedure & More.


IIM Trichy, a relatively newer institute when compared with the likes of the first generation of IIMs has been one of the fastest growing institutes in the country ever since its establishment back in 2011. This decade long journey has seen the institute being ranked at number 15 by NIRF among all the B-Schools in the country, and number 7 in the list of the 20 IIMs. However, none of this comes as a surprise, the institute was always destined for such rapid growth. Historically, Trichy has been a land of scholars and other great institutes like NIT Trichy et cetera. One of the reasons for this IIM’s growth has been the dynamic leadership which has overseen its rise from ‘just another IIM’ to one of the ‘top IIMs in the country’. This article will cover all the reasons as to why one should pick IIM Trichy over its other counterparts from the same tier of colleges and why it will prove to be a prudent choice come the admission season, and not to mention the fact that now the college has also started a new program dedicated to the future HR personnel of the country.

  • ROI:

As a future business leader, one thing that should always be a consideration before making an investment should be the ROI (return on investment). So how does IIM Trichy perform on this aspect? Well, the average placement for a student is Rupees 14.96 Lakhs. But of course, ROI is always mentioned with respect to the investment made. So the fee that is charged for the two-year flagship program as well as the HR program is Rupees 16.5 Lakhs. To put things into perspective, the next best IIM in the same tier of colleges (as ranked by NIRF), IIM Udaipur has an average placement of Rupees 13.84 Lakhs for a fee that stands somewhere around Rupees 17 Lakhs. Clearly, there is only one winner here. Also it would be irresponsible on my part to not remind you of the value that the ‘IIM’ tag caries in the initial few years of your corporate career.

  • Placements:

You say MBA, people hear high paying jobs with good roles. The placement scene at IIM Trichy has not only been promising but some of the numbers posted by the institute over the past couple of years has been nothing short of remarkable. So here’s a brief gist of what to expect: Average student? Well, high chances of bagging yourself a placement of around 14.96 Lakhs. Scared that the engineers on campus might take away the good jobs? Well, the good news is that there has been an increase of 31% in the average CTC among non-engineers. Like your summer internship role and want to work full time? The institute has seen an increase of 236% in the number of pre-placement interviews and pre-placement offers over the past year. Some of the biggest companies visiting the campus include McKinsey and Company, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Amazon, Avalon Consulting, Value Labs, Dabur et cetera.

  • Campus life:

Step into the 172-acre world of IIM Tiruchirappalli and you’ll find yourself lost in the beautiful skies that Trichy has to offer. This state of the art campus has been hailed by its former director Mr. Bhimaraya Metri as the best campus among all of the IIMs and one which could even give the foreign institutes a run for their money. The campus is teeming with life throughout the day, whether it be the students going towards to Academic Block, the Student Mess, the Night Canteen, the Sports complex or even their hostels. Each student gets a single occupancy room irrespective of the year that they are in. The institute also boasts a one of a kind Learning Resource Centre which acts as both an offline as well as an online library. This campus is one of the first IIMs to adopt solar energy as a way to move forward and installed an entire grid of solar panels for the future.
