How are the faculty at IIM Trichy?
Yes, Let’s talk about faculty – one of the crucial factors in choosing the college.

What if you could get an opportunity to talk to your faculty even at the odd times?
With around 36 in-house faculties, mostly from IIM A, B, and C, besides a few who pursued PhD from foreign universities, IIM Trichy is proud to have achieved a rare outstanding feat of the student to faculty ratio of around 10:1. It speaks the volume of the kind of support that students get from faculty at IIMT who work day in day out with unflinching dedication to enrich students’ learning experience.
The talent of students and the support they get from faculties has also been proved by our achievements in corporate competitions.

Let me talk about the placement for which you might have been reading this article very keenly till now.

But, is IIM Trichy all about the infrastructure, faculty, and placement?
Life at IIM Trichy is no less than an adventure! Trust me, this southern IIM never sleeps.
So, how does a typical day at IIM Trichy pass?
I would say, constructive chaos!
You must have heard the phrase, “Time flies.” At IIMT, you will feel it. With days packed with activities one after the other, it is bound to happen. Classes, assignments, discussions, sports, cultural events, clubs and committees‘ activities and other co-curricular activities ensure that we are on our toes all the time.
A typical day starts at 8 AM with a friend banging the door of your hostel room to wake you up for the 8:30 AM class. Yes, the time is of the essence. We are bound to cut short our morning sleep to attend the class for entry at 8:31 is never entertained.
Indeed, constructive chaos!
But there is more to our days beyond academics. Amidst the busy schedule, we have learned to steal time for ourselves and do things that we love. One can witness people flocking the sports complex playing table tennis, badminton, or unwinding themselves by swimming. People cherishing equanimity near the lake in the evening is a common sight.
Here, 3 AM is the new 10 PM because that’s when people usually call it a day. The canteen which serves us till 3 AM is one place where it always feels like daytime. Such is the crowd it attracts late at night.
So, this was all about the routine of a typical weekday. I will culminate this post by sharing my final thoughts – In the years I have been there, I have witnessed the IIM Trichy Brand which has been achieved on account of unprecedented growth rate in all the aspects, be it infrastructure, faculty or placement. Probably, that’s why it is ranked as one of the fastest-growing Business Schools in India.
I also stated one question in the beginning, “How does it fare among the second-generation IIMs?”
So far, I haven’t compared IIM T with other IIMs. You will be disappointed to know that I won’t compare IIMT with all the other second-gen IIMs. You have a rough idea where IIMT stands. But I will answer two questions, which might be coming across your mind. Read these answers here.
