    None of the IIMs appeal to CAT topper Vipul Tyagi

    Vipul Tyagi appeared in Common Admission Test (CAT) 2011 and was top scorer. But none of the IIMs appeal to this Engineering lad who has got call from IIM Kozhikode, IIM- Calcutta and other institutes. He says he just wants to prove other students that CAT is not very difficult and is not the property of the topper. Any person with good reasoning capacity and presence of mind can qualify CAT.
  • Placement at IIM just like Pushkar Mela

    Tata Sons Chief, Satish pradhan said, Campus placement at IIM's are like cattle fairs at pushkar mela held every year, at Confluence 2011 held at IIM Ahmadabad. He said cattle with the best decoration fetches highest bids, same is the case with IIM graduates, one with the best performance in the two year tenure receives the best package. IIM grads compete with each other for the best salary package. They jsut look for high paying job neglecting options to become entrepreneurs, leaders or change agents.
