IIM Ahmedabad is also known as the “Mecca of Marketing”. IIM-A is one part of the ‘trinity’ of best b-schools in India (the others being IIM Bangalore and IIM Calcutta). 

An MBA degree from IIM Ahmedabad is the most sought after by many CAT aspirants. As mentioned before, the bschool is best known for the diverse opportunities it provides for aspirants aiming for specialisation in Marketing.

Another important thing to note about IIM-A is its ‘diversity’ quota’. Say, if you are from a humanities background who has done well in their field then you will be offered certain relaxation as compared to other aspirants from an engineering background.

This is just one factor that IIM-Ahmedabad considers in its diversity quota. Overall, your profile will be a deciding factor in impressing the admissions committee.
