Placement Guide





IIMA has evolved from being India's premier management institute to a notable

international school of management in just four decades.

It all started with Dr. Vikram Sarabhai and a few spirited industrialists realising

that agriculture, education, health, transportation, population control, energy

and public administration were vital elements in a growing society, and that it

was necessary to efficiently manage these industries.

“The result was the creation of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad

in 1961 as an autonomous body with the active collaboration of the Government

of India, Government of Gujarat and the industrial sectors.”

It was evident that to have a vision was not enough. Effective governance and

quality education were seen as critical aspects.

From the very start the founders introduced the concept of faculty governance:

all members of the faculty play an important role in administering the diverse

academic and non-academic activities of the Institute. The empowerment of the

faculty has been the propelling force behind the high quality of learning

experience at IIMA.

The Institute had initial collaboration with Harvard Business School. This

collaboration greatly influenced the Institute's approach to education. Gradually,

it emerged as a confluence of the best of Eastern and Western values.

Freedom Is Not Free

I watched the flag pass by one day.

It fluttered in the breeze.

A young Airman saluted it,

and then he stood at ease.

I looked at him in uniform,

so young, so tall, so proud;

With hair cut square and eyes alert,

He stood out in any crowd.

I thought how many men like him,

had fallen through the years.

How many died on foreign soil?

How many mothers' tears?

How many pilots' planes shot down?

How many died at sea?

How many fox holes were soldiers' graves?

No, freedom is not free.

I heard Taps sound one night,

when everything was still.

I listened to the bugle play,

and felt a sudden chill.

I wondered just how many times,

Taps had meant "Amen,"

When a flag had covered a coffin,

of a brother or a friend.

I thought of all the children

of the mothers and the wives.

of the fathers, sons, and husbands,

with interrupted lives.

I thought about a graveyard,

at the bottom of the sea,

of unmarked graves at Arlington.

No! Freedom Is Not Free

We salute our gallant soldiers, sailors and airmen who made

the supreme sacrifice in the service of our nation. If only we

were there with them when they needed us most......

"when you go home, tell them of us and say,

for your tomorrow we gave our today."

-An Unknown Soldier

From the Director

Dear Recruiter,

It is my pleasure to introduce to you the participants of the Armed Forces

Programme (AFP) 2011.

Coinciding with the “Golden Jubilee” of the Indian Institute of Management,

Ahmedabad, 50 officers of the Indian Armed Forces are presently undergoing

a fully residential programme, at the institute to hone their skills in Corporate

Management. Given their outstanding service record, these officers already

possess exceptional qualities of leadership, perseverance, dedication and

loyalty for a successful career transition to the corporate world. The 24 week

exposure at IIM Ahmedabad would impart cutting edge knowledge on

contemporary management practices and the nuances of managerial skills

needed to function effectively in the emerging environment in the corporate

world. In addition to understanding of theoretical constructs in management,

the participants have acquired much greater domain awareness through

projects/assignments and interactions through guest lectures by practicing


I am confident that you will find that each one of the 50 participants, possesses

the right 'amalgam' of skills, temperament and experience to add maximum

value to your organization. I would urge you as recruiters to collaborate with us

at IIM, Ahmedabad to help in utilizing their skills, training and commitment in

furthering the growth of the nation.

Samir K. Barua

Director, IIM Ahmedabad

From the Course Coordinators

Faculty Messages

The officers of the Armed forces are well abreast with the concept of

“Operations” as part of their profession. It is the adaptability of these

officers to leverage their knowledge of challenging situations in

understanding the nuances of Operations Management which makes

them ideally suited to handle this complex field of management with

ease. Their logical ability and conclusive deductions is their strength in

this domain, which has been further strengthened by the course

content at IIM-A. The corporate sector would stand to gain immensely

from their skills and experience. I am confident that participants of AFP-

11 would definitely make valuable contributions in the field of

Operations Management while in the corporate world.

Prof. (Dr.) Chetan Soman

Production and Quantitative

Methods (P&QM)

Sound knowledge of people and their ways make the defence

officers unique. Given their immense experience they are able to

make the most use of the formalised training on concepts of human

behaviour at IIMA. This group of officers, I must say, are skilled and

suited for their foray into the corporate world. Their maturity level

and sincerity would certainly be an asset to any organisation.

Prof Neharika Vohra

Organisational Behaviour

It gives me a great satisfaction in presenting the seventh batch of

participants from AFP-2011. As a faculty for “Marketing” course for this

batch, I facilitated the participants in learning the basic principles of

marketing. Over two marketing courses, the participants do more than

20 different marketing case studies that gives them a feel for marketing

practice in many different industries. There are quite a few in this batch

definitely capable of doing great marketing jobs for firms that give them

an opportunity to do so. More generally, I believe that through this

certificate course in management they have gained sufficient

knowledge, skills and techniques across different areas of management,

and have built up their conceptual, analytical and implementational

skills. I am convinced that they have necessary abilities to deliver winning

results in middle to senior levels in the field of marketing and


Prof. (Dr) Arvind Sahay

Marketing and International Business

Always willing to take on any challenges that come their way,

participants of AFP-2011 demonstrated great aptitude and interest

in learning the skills needed for a smooth transition into their

corporate careers. With very high level of perseverance, they have

gained adequate expertise in the field of computing to gainfully

contribute in their chosen domains.

Prof TP Rama Rao

Computer and Information Systems Group (CISG)

The participants of the Armed Forces Programme have

demonstrated not only the discipline and deportment that is their

hallmark, but also an impressive commitment to maximizing their

learning from the programme and specifically from the Managerial

Communication module that provided an opportunity to hone their

written communication as well as presentation skills. This learning

and their vast and varied experiences have provided them the

requisite communication skills to deal with people at all levels, and

across cultures. These officers have had distinguished careers in the

defense of our nation. I am confident that with their experience,

training, and sterling qualities, they would be assets for the

organizations they join and will distinguish themselves in their new


Prof Meenakshi Sharma

Business Communication

It was a pleasure imparting the knowledge related to Financial

Management to participants of AFP-2011 batch and the interactions

with these motivated, energetic and bright defence officers were

very intriguing. The batch as a whole is very mature, highly focused

towards learning and very enthusiastic in application of their learning

to management practices. Their management skills and ability to

adapt to business environment coupled with the reorientation

at the

IIM-A, has made these officers suitable for variety of positions in the

middle and senior management levels in corporate world. I am

certain that these officers would make momentous contributions to

their organisations while in corporate environment.

Prof. Sobhesh Kumar Agarwalla

Finance and Accounting

IIM, Ahmedabad has exceptional faculty who have repeatedly distinguished themselves as teachers, researchers and consultants.

The presence of brilliant academicians, successful entrepreneurs & experienced consultants is an invaluable source of inspiration.

These legendary gurus who blend academic expertise with credibility gained from current business, professional & consultancy

activities have transformed these officers into corporate warrior. Their involvement with each and every student has been

commendable. This is what differentiates IIM A from other B-Schools.

Managers of the BATTLEFIELD

There is no second chance in battle, you win or

loose. This is what teaches them risk

management. Since time immemorial, officers in

the armed forces are known to manage men and

material in all situations. These officers from

today's highly technical armed forces have vast

and varied experience in the complete spectrum

of management.

These battle-hardened officers have now been metamorphosed

into their new role as corporate warriors by IIMA


A rich pedagogy driven by balanced mix of faculty comprising of

academicians, researchers and professionals drawn from the

public and private sector creates the right melting pot for the

best minds in the country. Learning takes place when there is

participation and at IIMA case study methods of interactive

pedagogy has been the main tool of learning. It predominantly

involves case discussions to leverage the rich experience of the

participants by encouraging active debates. In areas where new

skills are imparted to participants, classroom discussions are

aided by simulation techniques and real life scenarios. Class

interaction among the participants during case studies,

assignments, projects, presentations and industry exposure

form the essence of the learning experience. It not only helps

participants improve their group dynamics, but also offers a

platform to them where they can benefit the most out of each

other's experience. The programme is unique in terms of

building upon the existing experiences of the participants while

providing strategic learning inputs in areas where individual

experience is limited.
