Is it possible to land in and end up in this college which will be able to change your life completely?

That would be pretty epic, right?

Well, this is entirely possible, and in today’s article, I'll walk you through one of the best Indian institute's selection criteria so that you don't miss any of the important steps while going through JIM indore admission process. 

Let's start by knowing it, 

The Indian Institute of Management Indore (also known as IIM-I) is an independent public business school in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, India. IIM Indore, founded in 1996, is the sixth addition to the Indian Institute of Management (IIM) family of management schools and, like the other IIMs, was recognised as an institute of national importance in 2017.
