Like most of other IIMs, IIM Shillong has a very hectic schedule. Classes start at 9 in the morning and goes on till 6 in the evening. Sometimes there are extra classes and I have personally attended classes up to 2 AM in the night, but that is very rare. Also the rule of minimum 85% attendance makes it absolutely critical to attend classes. But attending classes is not all, there is hours of preparation before attending any class. You have to read and analyze the case study that is supposed to be discussed in next class before going to class, there are frequent presentations, projects and assignments in every subject. There is a mid-term exam (20% weightage) and an end term exam (40% weightage).
That is just the start, best part is the pedagogy followed by IIM Shillong. We have a case study method of teaching and teachers act as facilitators. Students are the participants who are supposed to come prepared in class and then discuss the topic/case in class. Facilitators (teachers) are expected to help them out by showing them right direction during discussion and adding new dimension to it. Those discussions and cases are from real life companies and cases. By attempting those cases, you get an idea of real life problem and you can see what kind of decision as a leader you will make. Also by means of regular assignments, project and presentation exercise, it is made sure that everyone is well attuned to the corporate environment.
MBA being a 2year course and the fact that IIM Shillong is extremely challenging, I would say your tenure at IIM Shillong would be like a true Roller coaster ride which would be thrilling and quick. You will gain a lot, learn new things and one thing is guaranteed- You will be transformed into a completely different individual at the end of those 2 years at IIM Shillong.
