IIM Calcutta has a diverse profile in terms of students admitted here. More than half of the current second year batch, which will be passing out in 2010, belong to the age group of 22-24. Thus, the atmosphere in the campus is quite energetic with young people accounting the majority.
More than 90% of the students are from engineering background, thereby increasing the average level of problem-solving skills, but that doesn’t mean a complete absence of other backgrounds. Students do come in from Humanities, Commerce, Sciences and other streams.
The percentage of people having work experience is slightly higher than those without work experience, with the majority of them having less than one year of experience. At the same time, the batch also consists of students having work experience of as much as 10 years
