Dear All,

Acharya Institute of Management and Sciences (AIMS) is a business school in Bangalore offering PGDM (60seats) & MBA (240seats) programmes. Both the programs are of 2 years duration. MBA with dual specialization is affiliated to Bangalore University. The PGDM is offered by AIMA & approved by AICTE.

The all-inclusive fee structure for the 2 year MBA program is Rs. 8,60,000 (this includes tuition fee & i-pad). Similarly the 2 year all inclusive PGDM fee is Rs. 5,50,000  (this includes tuition fee & i-pad). For both programmes, Hostel is optional at Rs 66,000/annum which includes boarding and lodging.

AIMS provided CL with placement data of 76 students (MBA & PGDM students passing out in 2013). This data met the CL audit standards. MBA placements score higher than PGDM placements on all parameters namely CTC, profile and companies. I am listing down here the key offtakes from the placement data:


  • 40% of students were offered CTC’s in the range of 4 to 6.6 Lacs.
  • Some of the key MBA recruiters were Federal Bank, Colgate Palmolive, ICICI Bank, Citi Bank, Reitzel Group, Cryobanks International, Bose India, Google, Oracle , Indus Ind Bank, Dish TV, Johnson & Johnson etc.


  • 46% of students were placed with CTC’s in the range of 3 to 5 lacs.
  •  The placement profiles of PGDM students include Asst Manager, Junior Officer, Management Trainee, Acquisition Manager, Content Developer, Officer etc

Selection Process
AIMS accepts CAT 2013 / XAT 2014 / CMAT /MAT /ATMA/ GMAT scores for admissions to its MBA & PGDM programs.
