Shobha Akhuli (Batch 2018-20)

The faculties are constructive and maintained a healthy relationship with their students.  They teach in such a style that Average or below-average students learn a lot. Yes, and also, here, the curriculum is significantly updated. The syllabus is very well organized and covers all parts of specialization. All the teachers have a good command of the subjects they teach. The syllabus is updated and helps you clearly understand the subjects and create your ideas about the subjects. Placements are the best part of the college. The placement and training cell is active, and they bring a lot of companies to the campus; the company's visits here are Deloitte, Colgate, etc. Good package with a different option. Overall providing good support by the CRC team.


Shubham Verma(Batch 2017-19)

I joined IMS in 2017 and batch 2017-19. I can never forget my journey within IMS and beyond, which gave me rich and practical experience. They put in a lot of effort to improve a student's employability, making them ready for their first adventure in the corporate.
I have a college placement in ICICI bank limited, where I am currently working for more than two years. Big thanks to the Placement department.

Today I am proud to be a part of the IMS family.


Pradeep Kumar (Batch 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 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, there is no limit on 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 the student. Participation helps them imply their management and team working skills and grow together.

When I travel 15 years back in memory lane, getting selected for PGDM Course at IMS Ghaziabad is one of the memories I am still fond of quality education, extracurricular opportunities, and mentorship received at the institution helped me become what I am today. The full-time residential programme involved working in teams on various projects and assignments. This helped improve soft skills, which are the foundation stone of a leadership role in any organization. At IMS Ghaziabad, students get multiple opportunities to interact with industry experts invited as Guest Speakers. Such initiatives help to develop a more comprehensive and updated understanding of the subjects taught.

Apart from this, the student body plays a vital role in running Corporate Resource Centre (CRC), whose effectiveness in any institution is reflected in CTCs offered to students passing batches as results have been speaking from themselves consistently for years. I strongly recommend and strongly recommend IMS Ghaziabad as a go-to institute for gaining learning and attaining excellence.
