Thus, aspirants would ideally be positively charged with enthusiasm and an abiding spirit of inquiry.
Process: The admissions process is designed to factor both your accomplishments and your potential. Therefore, the following components are used in deciding on your request:

Academic Record:

A sound and consistent scholastic record is a good starting point. A minimum score of 60% is expected at the X, XII and graduate levels. A post-graduate degree, although not essential, would be an advantage.


A key trait expected is fluent and precise communication in English - both oral and written. Selected students are encouraged to learn an additional language - local or foreign. Communication skills are tested through an essay to be written in 20 minutes, on one of three topics provided for the purpose; and an extempore presentation for 3 minutes on a topic to be chosen from a slate of contemporary topics.

The mission of RIMS is excellence in education. Yet, we are deeply conscious of the aspirations of young people when they enter the portals of RIMS - a career that all stakeholders in general and the students themselves in particular would be proud of. Career development and facilitation, like everything else at RIMS, is taken very seriously.
It starts with every student drawing up a plan and the institution facilitating the realization of the plan. We have a robust and vibrant interface with the corporate world that includes representation on the advisory council, guidance in formulating the curriculum, week-end and special lectures by industry experts, practitioners as adjunct faculty, senior managers assessing the project work and subjecting the students to a viva-voce, industry visits, internships and final placements.
RIMS has an impressive record of placements thanks to the co-operation of reputed recruiters, quality of students, and a conscious effort to find the best fit between the expectations of recruiters and the aspirations of students. 127 companies have visited the campus for 2012-2014 placements. Most of the recruiters of 2012-2014 have confirmed their participation in the recruitment process for batch 2013-2015. 95% of the batch of 2012 - 14 has successfully been placed with attractive salaries with maximum salary of 16 Lakhs.

Top Recruiters:

NOTE: In accordance with the Indian Placement Reporting Standards as amended up to date, the figures given are take-home salaries and do not include incentives and performance-related bonuses / perquisites. To provide a clear and transparent picture to aspiring students, we have done away with the concept of CTC that is always confusing and often misleading.
