IIM Sirmaur - MBA Admission Criteria 2017-2019
IIM Sirmaur in Himachal Pradesh is the newest management institute under the Indian Institute of Management brand. The institution is being mentored by one of the top most business schools in India - the Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow. The Lucknow IIM has been known for successfully mentoring two other IIMs in the past - IIM Rohtak and IIM Kashipur.
The classes for 2017-2019 batch shall begin with 60 seats by August 2017 at a temporary campus in the Himachal Institute of Technology, near Dental College in Paonta Sahib. However, the new campus shall be set up in the next two years' time. The temporary location of the campus would entail sufficient accommodation facility for faculty as well as students.
It would take about 3-4 hours windy road journey for reaching the campus from the nearest railway station. Dhaula Kuan, a village in Paonta Sahib Tehsil in Sirmaur District of Himachal Pradesh State, is located 39 Kms towards East from District head quarters Nahan and 98 Kms from State capital Shimla. Dehradun Railway Station is closest and just about 60 Kms away from upcoming IIM Sirmaur. However, closest airport is over 100 kms away.
