student profile
The IIM Amritsar community express its sincere gratitude to all the recruiters for supporting us during the pandemic and helping the institute achieve 100% summer and final placement. For the upcoming placement season, it is my pleasure to introduce the sixth and seventh batches of MBA students of IIM-Amritsar.
In the current academic year, in addition to the MBA program focusing on the broad-based curriculum, the institute has also introduced three new programs: MBA (Business Analytics), MBA (Human Resource Management) and E-MBA to meet the industry demand. As an evidence of our students’ calibre, the number of first-time recruiters and returning companies has been on the rise. During the 2020-21 placement season, the companies visiting the campus for final placement increased to 88 compared to the previous recruitment season, a growth rate of 100%.
I personally invite you to this year’s campus recruitment event and look forward to welcoming you. Please do not hesitate to contact me or our placement coordinator in assisting you in any way we can to make this year’s event an even better one.

Dear Business Leader,
At IIM Amritsar, working and interacting closely with leaders like yourself, we have been pleasantly surprised to witness that, notwithstanding the crisis, leading organizations and corporate leaders have continued to invest in, to build a more robust and future-ready talent pipeline.
In this backdrop, I am happy to share that IIM Amritsar has emerged as a premier hub of budding managerial talent in the country. A pointer to the increasing success of our endeavours is the fact that, in 2021, IIM Amritsar received the 6th highest number of applications from CAT aspirants among the twenty IIMs in the country. This is indeed a resounding vote of confidence, but also a humbling responsibility for us.
The 2020-22 batch is truly diverse, hardworking, possessing sharp intellect and business acumen, eager-to-learn, and, most of all, raring-to-go. We urge you to experience for yourself the vibrancy and dynamism of an IIM Amritsar student-manager!
Look forward to a long and fruitful association in accelerating your organizational growth.
With gratitude and best wishes.
