testimonials

Since I was in my graduation days, I always had this vision of doing Research in the OBHR area and since then this idea is pushing me to work harder and harder. I remember when I was applying for my FPM in IMT GHAZIABAD, I had the motivation of becoming a lecturer after 4 years of this program with little knowledge about the research world.. It’s already been a year at IMT and I can confidently say that studying in a prestigious institute of IMT GHAZIABAD, I have gained a robust understanding of management and how it relates to the working of the organization to be successful in this fast-paced world.

I have spent one and a half years in IMT now as an FPM student in Marketing Management and in this period, I have found that the FPM programme of IMT Ghaziabad is extremely focused on research. It is rigorous with a wide variety of research courses taught by highly established faculty, that gives an overview as well as a deep understanding of the various domains that the area covers and also helps in finding research problems that can be taken up for thesis. Along with that, the institute has given me good support in terms of library, hostel and internet facilities. Altogether, this programme will serve as a launchpad in my academic career.
