The Admission Season...

Of late it has been in fashion to exaggerate about the chilling cold of IIT Kanpur and believe me they are not wrong. We witnessed a few completely foggy winter days. The dancing fog in and around the hostel lobbies reminded us of Harry Potter’s foggy school... but all this could not restrict us from enjoying the weather...sometimes played football even in 20-30 metre visibility.

But,here, we don’t want to talk about the winter season. we want to talk about another season: The Admission season.
The admission season is back again... candidates are curious as to which college they would end up getting a seat in. The years of preparation is at stake... emotions are pigmented in colours of nervousness, eagerness and uncertainty... queries are galore just to sense whiff of success from one’s dream college... all suffice to make us nostalgic about our very own “season” last year...
IIT Kanpur has also tightened its belt to welcome the new members in its fold. IITs, as is known to all by now, are accepting CAT score for admission into their MBA program. IIT Kanpur has set its own criteria for admission. The distinguishing point is that a cap in terms of 10th, 12th and graduation marks has been introduced. Girl candidates have been encouraged for admission by waving off their application fee (we do appreciate this step! ;))

We here at IIT Kanpur have been trying to answer the queries of candidates at various fora namely Pagalguy.com, Facebook etc. We do encourage the candidates to ask any query regarding admission. We try our best to answer them to the best of our knowledge, as quickly as possible.
Despite many changes have been alluded by our faculty members at different fora regarding the kind of candidates (in terms of experience and past academic record) they are looking for, it’s still to be seen which “breed” of candidates carries the prestigious legacy.
I, on behalf of MBA- 2013 and PR & Media team, wish all the luck to the candidates and hope that they get what they deserve.
Hoping to see u here!

The Dawn of A New Beginning - MBA Batch 2017-19

“Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” -Sun Tzu




‘I am an IITian’, even after two months here at IIT Kanpur this one line still fills our heart with excitement. Each one among the 54 students here who have started the journey into the MBA programme of IIT Kanpur, batch of 2017-19, feels that pride and with that equally realizes the responsibility it carries.
We started our journey here on 20th July. Meeting our batch mates for the first time still feels thrilling. Though we knew each other through the whatsapp/facebook group that was created by our seniors to make our registration process as smooth as possible. We were given several assignments before the registration to give us an inkling of the idea of how life at IIT Kanpur is going to be. Assignments were planned in a way such that we get a hands-on experience on case studies, presentations, group activities and article reading. We began burning the midnight oil as a precursor to actually doing it, and how! These assignments u…
