IMT Ghaziabad has commenced its new academic session for batch 2021 -23 for its flagship programs.  The foundation and orientation programme for the new batch was done online on Monday, August 2 ,2021. The students were welcomed virtually by Dr Subhajit Bhattacharyya- Director IMT Ghaziabad; Dr Rakesh Gupta -Program Chairperson; Dr Amit Sareen –Dean Academics & Dr P K Biswas –Dean Research. Welcoming the incoming batch of 2 year PGDM 2021-23, Director IMT G Dr Subhajit Bhattacharyya said that the students should keep their mind open for exploring opportunities even in challenging circumstances. He mentioned that challenges and obstacles were eventualities in real life, but overcoming them and being innovative enough to create opportunities for growth even in most challenging circumstances was the human nature. While talking to students about fulfilling their career objectives, Dr. Bhattacharyya advised them that they should keep three most important qualities embedded in all the decisions they would take - Ethics, Empathy and care for Mother Earth.

The incoming students have already undergone a four-week preparatory module where they were introduced to various quantitative and behavioural concepts and pedagogical tools that will prepare them to deal with the rigours of the upcoming program. Due to COVID -19 pandemic the institute conducted classes online last year and continues to conduct it for this year too for academic batch 2021. As soon as Govt. mandate allows IMT will switch to classroom model of teaching to revive the face-to face interactions on campus.

Addressing the new batch of PGDM program, Dr Amit Sareen – Dean(Academics) of IMT Ghaziabad said “A journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step. This is your first step and I can reassure you that you have taken the right step. IMT Ghaziabad is a truly global institute with AACSB accreditation which is a symbol of the highest quality of management education across the globe. The teaching and learning at IMT involves lectures, cases, internships, assignments and projects and extensive industry interaction. IMT has a rich alumni network across the globe working in top most organizations and our alumni regularly participate in institutional and academic activities and this provides a very unique strength to IMT. In addition to knowledge imparted by top class faculty members who bring a good blend of industry and academics, the institute also provides extensive e-learning resources to the students which include e-books, e-journals, world class cases from Harvard and other top B-Schools, more than 55 online databases and access to Bloomberg terminals. All this is in addition to physical books, journals and business magazines available in the library. I would also request the students to interact and converse in classes both with their teachers as well as their fellow students as this will enhance their learning by making each of the sessions much more interactive. All classes are now being held regularly for both first and second year students supported by latest IT infrastructure to support the teaching learning process”.

New Initiative for Academic Year 2021-22:

“This year keeping in mind the current situation due to pandemic and class-room delivery through online mode, we have taken few initiatives to deliver various experiential learning workshops like Design Thinking and Entrepreneurship & New Venture in such a way that the flavour as well as the objectives of these workshops are met. Further from this year, we have planned to have a mandatory one-week immersion program for each student of the incoming batch, where the students will go to partner institutions and spend at-least a week to develop international exposure” [Dr Rakesh Gupta, Program Chairperson PGDM, IMT Ghaziabad]

PGDM BFS program- IMT Ghaziabad:

As students join different programs of IMT Ghaziabad, the institute continues to groom and transform future leaders. Similar to this the renowned PGDM (BFS) programme of IMT G provides students with contemporary skills and knowledge that are relevant for managing core operations of firms operating in the banking and financial services sector. Elaborating on this transformation of BFS program, Prof Ritesh Pandey - Program Co-chairperson (BFS) said “Even in the pandemic situation, the first two batches of the PGDM (BFS) program have performed successfully. Students of the first batch have joined the world-class organizations in management positions after finishing their courses and their immediate juniors have started the second year of their studies coming back from a rich summer internship experience in similar set-ups. The incoming batch will join a program that has seen continuous evolution based on inputs by all stakeholders. The program is now more refined and strikes a finer balance between theory and applications and between skills and knowledge. It promises to give students strong exposure to international practices in the BFS industry as well as to the Indian ecosystem many will face when they join industry”

Dual Country Program –IMT Ghaziabad

The program chairperson Prof Shawn Mathew explains the PGDM – Dual Country Program “As a unique course offered by IMT Ghaziabad where students spend a year each at IMT Ghaziabad and IMT Dubai. The program is designed to offer the students the best of both worlds wherein the students get trained in the foundational courses at IMT Ghaziabad and move on to IMT Dubai to undertake the specialized courses in domains of their choice. The multi-country, multi-cultural exposure prepares the students towards an international career, equipping the students with the technical and interpersonal skills necessary to excel in a global setting. Over the past decade, the program architecture has evolved to adapt to the dynamic business environment and the revamped program architecture for the AY 21-23 batch showcases this progressive transformation.  The program currently offers three super specialization tracks which the students can opt from, Advanced Quantitative Finance, International Trade and Logistics, and International Business and Marketing. The students of the super specialization tracks will be exposed to courses in International Business and Law in addition to the core subjects and electives in their respective domains “
