Way back in 2008-09, Executive MBA options were limited and costly. I am glad to have made that decision to join IMT, Ghaziabad which has shaped & guided my career journey. Unlike today’s virtual world infested with Zoom & Teams led conversations, the physical learning environment was invigorating & I made some friends for life! Noticeable, that most of our batch / batch mates have made a mark for themselves in the industry, given the strong booster learning dose by IMT Ghaziabad! In the learning environment, what certainly has not changed are those brilliant & affectionate professors who still are connected on Facebook, LinkedIn and provide their guidance, encouragement & blessings in abundance.
