Guys, I have seen a lot of comments from so called IIPM people. I bring to you some of them in one place (not the outright abusive ones). A few of you have suffered them in my name (Andy, went on copying and pasting them at many places) and here it goes.
dear mridula, your question is logical and i hope i can give an answer to it; though it might not be the official one. here goes.
your question is, why does iipm advertise full page ads and iims do not. there could be two straightforward reasons to the same as i see them. one is that iipm has seven branches across india compared to other institutes that have only one branch and need to advertise only once.
Well, I said it before; IIMs issue admission notices and not ‘Dare to think beyond IIPMs’ kind of stuff.
since i have been here, i have had almost around 15 ivy league professors who have come to iipm campuses and have taken seminars at iipm.
Are you sure they were seminars? Your ad says they teach courses, which is not one and the same thing.
to quote the case of iit kanpur, you can ask any of the professors of iit kanpur how they jumped up at journalists when their center for enterprise technology (cet), …
Give me a link.
“your first query: “Andrew, the majority of claims made by IIPM adverts come from one source Business Baron. Why?”
if i were to request you to calculate the percentage of space devoted in a typical iipm advertisement to the business barons source (and to the business today source too please), you would realise that the percentage space is less than 1.3% (you won’t believe it, i actually calculated it). if you were to say that 1.3% space devoted to a ranking given by business barons is “majority of claims”, i should (again “should”, kill me) say that your query is misrepresented”
The question was not about advertising space but the number of sources given for the rankings. So how many magazines do you quote apart from Business Baron?
ask any iipm student in delhi and bangalore who andy is and they’ll tell you. anyway, your post seems very genuine. you could join iipm if you wish to.
You are a student right? And you realize I am a faculty member somewhere else. Can you please explain the above statement?

IIPM Planning and Research
have been assisting the faculty at IIPM in our journals (4P’s – now a succesful magazine in Marketing – India’s largest), our HR and FInance journals as well for almost six months now. I will pass out of IIPM this year, and will not stand for this mud slinging in the name of journalism.
Give us a source, which says so about 4P’s.
And you will not stand mudslinging but you will indulge in it, right? This is what you yourself say earlier
