Student Testimonials| Indian Institute of Management Sirmaur (IIM Sirmaur)
A campus in the midst of mountains and hills, with a very peaceful environment and plenty of dizzy breezes. Yes, this was our campus, and we students were very grateful for such beautiful surroundings. Even after going through such a drastic change from online to offline mode, all of us are highly overwhelmed with our journey.
From giving online presentations to standing in front of the class and giving them offline, from interacting just with a bunch of people online to connecting with all others on campus, this is how the students of Batch'23 have spent their MBA life.
I had the privilege of attending this prestigious institution, and I can confidently say that it has been one of the most valuable experiences of my life.
The faculty members at IIM Sirmaur go above and beyond to ensure that students have a thorough understanding of the subject matter and are well-equipped to succeed in their careers. The curriculum is rigorous and challenging, but it is also well-structured and provides students with a comprehensive understanding of business principles and practices.
In addition to the academic curriculum, I was fortunate enough to start my own startup with seed funding in my final year. This exposure to real-world experiences and perspectives has been invaluable to my personal and professional growth.
Overall, IIM Sirmaur has provided me with an excellent education and a strong foundation for my career. I would highly recommend this institution to anyone looking to pursue a career in business or management.

I am honored to share my experience with the esteemed institution, IIM Sirmaur, located near the picturesque Himalayan range. This institute has proven to be a beacon of hope for aspiring individuals who wish to make a positive impact on the world through education.
From the moment I stepped onto the campus, I was struck by the serene beauty of the surroundings. The lush greenery and the towering mountains provided the perfect backdrop for a learning environment that is both stimulating and peaceful.
There are over 25 clubs and committees to choose from, and I am glad to have been part of the placement committee, which helped me improve my soft skills in more ways than I could express.
IIM Sirmaur truly transforms an individual during their two years of tenure. Batch 07 started its journey online, letting students study and experience a very different side of the journey. The institute has proven to be a beacon of hope for aspiring individuals who wish to make an impact on the world. When we visited the campus for the very first time, every single one of us fell in love with the aura of IIM Sirmaur.
The journey started like a magnificent sunrise, with students interacting through their laptop screens. Students have now broken the laptop screen setup. They are now out on campus, playing, giggling, discussing their future plans, and, of course, meeting at the canteen to dance to their favorite hook step of their song as the journey winds down like a peaceful winter sunset.
Having graduated from the prestigious Tata Institute of Social Sciences and on track to chart my career in administration and governance, IIM Sirmaur was a choice catalyst to amplify and redefine the contours of my potential.
The scientifically structured programmes and the measured buoyancies they ensure to both freshers and experienced candidates make the ecosystem at IIM Sirmaur a quintessential soundboard for budding managers and administrators. Coming from a traditionally agrarian family and being a first-generation post-graduate, our institute of national importance never made me feel out-of-place, so much so that I topped the First year and secured the Merit Scholarship, further enabling me to explore my capabilities. During my time at the Himalayan IIM, I also served as a Placement Coordinator, forging relations with Corporate denominations and setting the benchmark that is IIM Sirmaur, in the industry.
I would recommend IIM Sirmaur wholeheartedly to all aspiring managers that feel the need to professionally decorate and accentuate their acumen. The mountains can never do you wrong!

IIM Sirmaur, surrounded by the majestic beauty of the Himalayas, provides a truly unique and breathtaking setting for learning and growth. As a student, it far exceeded my expectations. From the supportive faculty to the challenging coursework, my time at this institution has been transformative.
Extracurricular activities and clubs enabled me to pursue interests outside of the classroom. My college experience was enhanced by live projects, community service, and cultural events. The campus environment fosters creativity and collaboration. I was fortunate to be a part of this vibrant learning community. Exploring new places with friends was a fantastic experience full of adventure, laughter, and memories to last a lifetime. I had unparalleled opportunities, whether trekking through the mountains, studying the region's rich cultural heritage, or exploring places to eat. IIM Sirmaur provided excellent preparation for my career and personal development. I recommend this college for a challenging and rewarding college experience.

Overall, IIM Sirmaur has been an excellent platform for me to pursue my career aspirations, and I am grateful for the opportunities and experiences I have gained here.
My experience at IIM Sirmaur has been truly enriching. The MBA course offered a wide horizon of practically challenging business scenarios. The idyllic surroundings made the rigours of academia a serendipitous journey. The institute has nurtured my personal and professional self. Having lived an IIM student’s life, I feel confident to push the frontiers. .
Anything which develops a person either personally or professionally requires something beyond the usual knowledge which people get from any educational institution during their student life. IIM Sirmaur stands as an example for this where it not only provides the knowledge, exposure, facility, and all the other facilities required but also an extremely soothing environment which acted the major part of the Sirmaurian’s Himalayan Journey. Whatever may be a person’s expertise with any particular subject or academics on the whole, the practical experiences and the people whom we interact and spend our time with are the ones which are more important in grooming a person to be industry ready which happened in IIM Sirmaur to the people who were able to interact and work along with each other. Nevertheless, the whole MBA journey has been transformative in various aspects of an individual which is particularly necessary for a broader perspective, being a person who belongs to the very first batch of MBA in Tourism and Hospitality Management, the challenges kept on multiply day by day that in turn resulted in the learning curve to move steeper. On the whole, the students can get into the corporate world during the time of a global crisis, also survive and excel from the obstacles which come our way which was solely possible due to a meaningful journey that had everything in it.

At the foot of the Himalayas, a stone’s throw away from the humdrum of the peaceful Paonta Sahib, nestles IIM Sirmaur with all its livery. A campus that never sleeps; you can always find some students burning the mid night oil for the important quiz the next day or some having their late-night tea break in the canteen. People from various cultures from all around the country, under one roof, with great teaching faculty guiding them towards their future. One of the most emphasized virtues inculcated at IIM Sirmaur is the attribute of giving back to the society around us, which can be seen in the various activities taken up under the CSR banner of the institute. Friends made, memories shared, experiences obtained, and most importantly, knowledge gained, true to the institute's motto, “Knowledge, Leadership.”
