A year after its inauguration, IIM Calcutta was designated as the mentor institution for IIM Bodh-Gaya. Professors from this mentor institute teach at the IIM as visiting faculty.
Other problems at the institution
Management of the university is either outsourced or maintained from a distance. The institute is set to have its full-time director sometime in its third year.
The first batch received only 30 admissions in comparison with its approved number of 60 seats.
The biggest concern of IIM Bodh Gaya is its credibility in offering placements to its students.
Summer placements 2016
In the 2016 summer placements, IIM Bodh Gaya placed second to last amongst six newly inaugurated IIMs-Visakhapatnam, Bodh Gaya, Simaur, Nagpur, Sambalpur and Amritsar- in acquiring internships for its students.
Hopeful improvements at the institution
IIM Bodh Gaya's public relations committee is hopeful of the improvements to come in the institution.
According to reports, there are proposals to construct four new classrooms and a laboratory in the same building.
The hostel is reported to have a power back-up and a stablizer.
The state government of Bihar too pledged 180 acres for the purpose of constructing a permanent campus.
