The school of ideas is ready to welcome fresh souls into its soulful campus.
The name MICA Ahmedabad is synonymous with 'energy' for those who have stepped into the campus on one or more occassions. I remember being on campus in 2014, during the college's cultural fest. Right from the incredibly rich graffiti painted by the institute's students, to the aura of liberated education that seems to flow within its corridoors, everything about the institute seemed to appeal to every part of me that was born to innovate, or at least felt inclined to do so.
I remember being full of admiration and genuine, heartfelt envy at the students who would enjoy the environs of the institute for a full course duration. I recall learning about MICAT for the first time, and the raw enthusiasm that MICA-folk seemed to emanate when speaking of the democratic-elite-camaraderie that is commonplace in every individual.
Creative energy is a complicated concept to be fully rendered within a decidedly academic environment. The way MICA does this not just beautiful, but worth replicating in every sphere of our professional lives.
-(From our editor-in-chief, fondly recalling his brief stay at MICA during authorspeak 2014)
Founded in 1991, some of MICA’s prominent alumni are now employed with the most revered Indian and global organization, known to occupy positions of influence and creative wisdom within spaces such as FMCG , consumer products, media, digital, consulting, advertising, housing, BFSI, IT/ITES/e-Commerce, analytics, retail, etc.
Many ex-MICA students are succesful entrepreneurs in their own right.
