New IIMs, Baby IIMs worth it?

There is information overload regarding admission to IIMs, but aspirants don’t even know about which IIMs are babies and which are new IIMs. There are three kinds of IIMs in terms of their establishment date. 

Old IIMs- BLACKI, i.e., Bangalore, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Calcutta, Kozhikode, Indore.

New IIMs- Those that are established before 2015.

Baby IIMs- Those that got established after 2015.

  • IIM tag is an IIM tag. Ask where you want to go.
  • The increment in placements of the following colleges with go high.
  • You can consider your short-term benefit of considering established universities over New IIMs where you get well-established campuses etc.
  • Long-term benefits will be the IIM tag that will help build communities and then choose new IIMs.
  • In case of confusion and stress, reach out to alumni, dean, and directors of the college you’re interested in, and then take the required information.
  • Consider the brand and companies or organisations that are hiring and the job roles they are offering.
