Mr. Arpit TewariPost Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) - Batch of 2020-22
My personal experience with IMS has been very exploratory, not only about the corporate culture, new areas of knowledge and skills but also on a personal development front. Despite being an academically sound student, I had many apprehensions regarding presentations, group discussions, and interviews. But the curriculum at IMS has helped me grow and come out of these apprehensions and express myself more. The curriculum is a blend of all the theoretical concepts and their applications both in professional and personal life. The faculty and mentors are all very supportive and guide you in the right direction and enhance our knowledge to become more corporate-ready.
If I would say for placements, then there is no lack of companies coming to the campus ranging from all the different sectors including financial services, banks, edutech, IT, marketing, media, etc. The college also has a PPPC (Pre-placement preparedness committee), which assists the appearing candidates to help them clear their doubts before appearing for the placement drives. At IMS, we have a rigorous curriculum involving both class and different club activities. Also, various webinars, alumni talks, corporate talks, and other events involve student. Participation helps them imply their management and team working skills and grow together.

It is a Great Experience to be a part of IMS Family. Since I Joined the Collage During Covid-19 At its Peak and No one thought the Life should Become Normal or Not, I’m not well aware of the Course and Curriculum of PGDM at IMS.
After Becoming A Member Of IMS Family, My Life Takes a big turnaround from the First day of Admission, As the classes was going on virtual platform of zoom until we feel like that we are in the campus. The College Faculty Is So much Supporting and Help Us In Every Possible Way. We Regularly go Through by Surprise Quiz which help us to be aware in the class always and Group Discussion & presentation in each subject too. The college also go through by SIP Readiness Module which helps us to be ready for facing interviews.
The college also offered value-added Certification Programs like Digital Marketing & Six Sigma Belt Certified By MSME, MS Office by Microsoft and more Like this.
The IMS also introduced us to the corporate world by regular Talk Series By Global Experts, Corporate Experts & Alumni Talk Series which help us to know what Corporate life Is. The college offered Dual specialization with Trimester System. I’m feeling obliged to be part of IMS GHAZIABAD.

Continuous Learning, this is what I have experienced being a part of IMS. There are a plethora of opportunities onboard.
Corporate Interface: The institute provides a large number of opportunities to interact and learn from corporate experts through its various corporate, global and expert series. The experts are invited from all the different domains and also from areas other than just traditional areas like emerging markets, technology, etc.
Infrastructure: The institute has a good infrastructure with nice ambience; with air-conditioned class rooms, lift-enabled, good canteen, library, hostel facilities, water coolers, etc.
Library: The library at IMS is equipped with all the necessary books and also with digital resources for additional knowledge base and data requirements. Some of the resources include emerald insight, Thomson Reuters, CMIE, ET Prime to name a few.
Hostel: The hostel rooms are 2-seater and have all the facilities like gym, digital library, medical room, canteen, nice mess, sports facilities (basketball, badminton, carrom, etc.) and also other facilities like induction, iron station, water-coolers at all floors and lifts.
Curriculum: The curriculum at the institute is designed with the aim of over-all development of the student and make them corporate ready. It is an effective blend of both knowledge and experience with rigorous group discussion sessions, presentations, back to back engagements like seminars (webinars, during COVID times) and exam schedules. Along with this, the support and motivation from the faculty and mentors is unpliable.
Placements: From my experience, I can definitely say that there is no lack of opportunities. Though there may be a difference in number of opportunities depending on the areas of specialization. There are a large number of companies including both well-established brands as well start-ups visiting the campus (both virtually and physically, owing to COVID pandemic). Some of the names might include Deloitte, Byju’s, ICICI, ITC, Blackstone, DTDC and many more.
Apart from all the above areas there are various other events like the annual cultural fest, conferences, annual sports day and other club activities students can be engaged in.
