Popular MBA College Comparison: IIM Bangalore vs IIM Ahmedabad

By Editorial

The IIMs located in different parts of the country are more or less at par with each other. Saying one is better than the other is not a good thing to so. The same applies for IIM Bangalore and IIM Ahmedabad. Placement is a major criterion when it comes to selecting B-schools in India. If we consider on this aspect, both these IIMs are of equal weightage. However, one can find differences in the culture and structure of the courses at these two educational institutions. 

Balance between study and life

IIM Ahmedabad is one of the most academically rigorous educational institutes in India. This does not mean that the academics at IIM Bangalore are less rigorous. Both are at equal level if you compare the vastness of their syllabus. The major difference that arises between the two business schools is in the effort that a student needs to put in their studies. At IIM Ahmedabad, the entire syllabus is taught with the help of a cased based pedagogy structure. In the case of IIM Bangalore, it is a mixture of case studies, lectures and seminars. This means that a student at IIM Ahmedabad have to study for three to four hours before attending a class. And if you take into account the projects and the different assignments, the student hardly has time for extra-curricular activities. IIM Ahmedabad has a great social life but you often have to sacrifice that due to the heavy study pressure. 

These happen relatively less at IIM Bangalore. You can get those extra three to four hours to do whatever you like every day. And this gives a balance to the life of the students. 

Foreign exchange program

There is a student exchange program that is for three months duration. The IIMs has a great list of b-schools as partners and this is a great opportunity for the students. IIM Bangalore score well than IIM Ahmedabad when it comes to partner b-schools.
