When the fresh batch of students walked down the corridors of the stone building in the Indian Institute of Management-Bangalore (IIM-B) on Mon day, 20th June, it had answers to the constant cribbing along the years of IIM batches having a skewed gender ratio and an over dose of engineers.
The 2011-13 batch of the flagship post graduate programme (PGP) in management has more girls than the previous year. The 85 girls (compared to 78 last year) form 22.25% of the total strength of this, the majority falls into a bracket of fresh graduates with zero work experience. The overall intake has increased marginally to 382 candidates this year. Though majority of the students still have an engineering background (91.32 %) their percentage has come down by around 2% compared to the previous year While there are 13 Commerce students, 9 Science students and six Management students, there are also a couple with degrees in Medicine and the Arts. As many as 144 students or almost 37% come with degrees from the elite group of institutions the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) and National Institutes of Technology (NITs). All, save one, are engineers. Majority of the 297 male students are in the age group of 25 to 30 years. Among female candidates, 63 of the total 85 are between 20 and 24 years. The youngest student is all of 20 years and the oldest are 34 years. Eight students are from overseas. Classes started with a week-long orientation programme.
