Even though the new IIMs might not match the reputation of the older IIMs, but they are still better than some other B-schools that claim to offer you the best facilities but fall short on multiple fronts. Baby IIMs have proved that they belong amongst the leading management institutes, but there is still a long way to achieve the at-par status with the established IIMs and other leading business schools. So, students who wish to access the best education facilities and infrastructure of the IIMs will do good to join any of the baby IIMs over some lesser-known private institutes.
