Now, let us move to our suggestions section.
Want to build a career in Finance? - Join IIM Calcutta
Want to build a career in General Management and/or Consulting? - Join IIM Bangalore
Want to build a career in Sales and Marketing? – Join IIM Calcutta
Want to build a career in SCM/Ops? - Join None if you have other options in hand which are the best in SCM. But if only these two are the options, then C is relatively better – Just like the edge that IIM C had over IIM A in SCM, the same is there over IIM B as well – though not among the best yet when it comes to SCM.
When it comes to Sales and Marketing, both the colleges are at par with each other – both in terms of companies and the profiles offered. However, IIM Calcutta has an edge of relatively lower course fee and hence we suggest IIM C over IIM B, because if you are getting similar packages and companies then why to pay a higher EMI by studying at IIM Bangalore.
Before we end, let us mention about SCM- the scene remains the same as it was in IIM A vs IIM C discussion. Though both IIM B and IIM C do not provide the best of the possible platforms to launch a career in SCM, but when discussed relatively- IIM Calcutta provides a better platform as compared to IIM Bangalore.
