IIMB’s latest batch includes scientists, designers and travel bloggers

The new Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) batch of 2022-2024 includes students who are scientists, designers and travel bloggers. The institute says these are initiatives to ensure a more inclusive and diverse group.

“IIMB strives towards diversity and inclusiveness and has taken several initiatives such as launching a predoc program towards inclusion,” said the institute’s spokesperson. School B has about 34% women in its latest cohort, trying to increase the gender ratio on campus. Younger IIMs like IIM-Kozhikode and IIM-Raipur have gender diversity compared to older ones.

One of the students included in the new batch of IIM-B is a former ISRO scientist with a work experience of five years in planning, analysis and operations of satellite mission operations. Another student is a fashion design graduate from NIFT Delhi and has worked for over four years as a designer in a clothing buying house. Then there is a travel blogger and photographer who has worked on projects for travel brands such as Beyond Travel, Cushy, Tourism Authority of Thailand, etc.

A diverse profile is an attempt to bring different groups of companies to the campus. During the placement season, the 2020-2022 batch saw 662 offers, taking the total to 513 students where consulting companies made 248 offers and recruiters from the Information Technology and Product Management field made 141 offers.
