It takes a lot of courage to change careers. The skills you’ve spent years developing in your current profession may not be used in a different field, but sometimes the question of “what if?” becomes too much to resist.

Learning is a key to success and life has no shortcuts and with this dream, I always moved on in my life. IMS Ghaziabad has played a pivotal role in shaping my career goals in the right direction. I was blessed to get the support of our respected director sir, Prof J. P. Sharma, all the faculties; without their immense efforts, I wouldn’t have reached my goal.

From the bottom of my heart, I would like to thank the entire CRC team of IMS Ghaziabad for providing me with the great opportunity to work with the organization like Nestle India Ltd.

I am very thankful to my colleagues for their immense support in these two beautiful years of my life. At IMS, I have developed enormous confidence by participating in various extra-curricular activities apart from academics. This confidence really helps in leading your corporate life in a smooth way.

Last but not the least, I would like to thank The Almighty, my family, my teachers, my friends for their constant support and making these two years journey of IMS Ghaziabad nostalgic.

The journey of any MBA aspirant is never an easy one. One is always chasing after the lectures, case studies, projects, internal evaluations, and the placements. My journey has been quite similar to that of any other Post Graduate Management student. I got admission in IMS Ghaziabad in 2015, with all my homework done and familiarized myself with the programme. After joining the college, I learnt something in the initial days of Post Graduation – Be prepared for surprises and challenges.

The very first interaction in the campus started with the faculty members. Faculties here have been very helpful and are always available for their valuable guidance. Not only academically, mentoring is always done for any problem, be it personal or professional. They groomed us in such a way that makes us prepared to fight any battle in the corporate sector. I would like to thank the program Chairperson Sir and all the faculty members for investing good faith in us and believing in us.

Another strong pillar of IMS Ghaziabad that everyone believes completes the IMS family is the CRC department (Placement cell). I appreciate the entire CRC team for working for us day and night. I have been placed in three reputed brands – AMUL, Amazon, and Federal Bank. What could have I asked better than this? I would like to thank the CRC team for always motivating me and allowing me to appear in the placement process of multiple brands. This journey wouldn’t be possible without them.

And last but not the least; I would like to thank my Almighty, my family, and my friends here in IMS Ghaziabad. Without their constant support and motivation, I couldn’t have achieved anything.

I personally believe that hard work and self-belief are two important attributes that can never be replaced and if one follows the same path, can never fail in life. Thank you!

IMS GHAZIABAD is an institution par excellence where students are imbibed with the skill sets that have added value in my life, making me better than what I was before. Testing ones limits is what IMS is all about where every day starts with some new challenge. it made me tough and I had left no stone unturned. From the faculty to the staff, all are so dedicated towards delivering excellence; one can learn the desired set of skills from them which the industry requires.

They provide students a number of opportunities to grow and excel in their areas of interest. The CRC team provides ample opportunities to students to get into their dream companies and today it’s their effort that brought me at such huge heights during the start of my corporate carrier.

Currently I am proudly working with “Amazon”. I would like to thank my IMS family for the love, care and support which they have always bestowed upon me.

Love you IMS!!!!

Straddling, staring at the vast ocean of opportunities after my graduation not knowing what to get into.

Here is where the orthodox protocol of getting enrolled in C.A.T came in. even after clearing my C.A.T, I found myself bay less, and that’s when IMS came in my life. After getting into this esteemed institution for my further studies in management, I finally found my boat in this vast commercial ocean that is finance. IMS chiseled my imperfections giving actual field exposure, working on a full scale enhancement of my mind, personality and the overall me, gave a lifelong gift of perfection in the field.

The institution ensured a perfect ambience to work and study in, providing with the best of facilities be it the faculty or the infrastructure. Everything helped me nurture myself into a professional environment. The course designed helped me to understand the market and its components and helped me to derive a unified theory of success, eventually landing me into one of the most competitive firms of the world i.e Deloitte as a tax consultant. I worked hard under the guidance of the esteemed faculty to get placed here, from showing up early to staying up late everything was worth it. One of the best memories of my journey through IMS was my hostel life and continued support of my mates,

This is Rajat Kumar Ajmeria signing off my alma mater. Wishing all the very best to the subsequent batches

Thank You IMS!!!

SUCCESS DOES NOT COME TO YOU, YOU GO TO IT!

PGDM at IMS not only provided me a real time experience for testing and improving my decision making skills but also helped to prepare me for the future challenges. PGDM programme provides hands on experience of real business challenges and takes experiential learning to a new level. The IMS culture gave me an opportunity to fulfill my dreams and to seek recognition. It wasn't just a post graduate programme but a family like platform that made me enter the corporate world with all the motivation that was required. The dual specialization gave me another good opportunity to brush up my skills and seek knowledge of both marketing as well as human resource management.

I feel privileged to be an IMSian and thankful as well for they provided me with my dream job at one of the top notch NBFC's with the utmost trusted Tata Group. I shall always be thankful to our Placement coordinators as my dream of being associated with Tata Group would have not been accomplished without their efforts, support, timely guidance and blessings and i shall always seek their guidance in future as well as they had put up all their faith in me and made me achieve my goal.

Thank You IMS!!!

“Success is the result of Hard Work, Perseverance, learning from failures, Persistence and Determination.”

am proud to be the part of a prestigious Institute like IMS Ghaziabad. IMS has excellent environment to learn with great faculty members who are very knowledgeable, supportive and always available to help their students when we face difficulty both academically and emotionally.

I was an average student in my school days but I really worked hard on myself and scored 9.5 CGPA in my engineering and qualified to be successful Computer Science Engineer in first class with distinction, which is one of the biggest achievements in my academic journey. At IMS, I was throughout an 8 pointer; this is just possible by the immense hard work, I did on myself and with the help of faculty at IMS. At IMS, everyday was new learning for me. it organizes so many programs for us that proved really helpful to shape each and every aspect of its students like knowledge, personality development, skills and confidence building. IMS has given me many memories to cherish among them one of the memory was anchoring International Conference 2015.

I remember the day when I was selected for Redington (India) Limited; most memorable day which would be cherished throughout my life. It feels great to start the career with such renowned organization. I would like to thank our director Prof. J. P. Sharma who had always been great motivator. I am sincerely thankful to CRC team of IMS who really work hard for each and every student to get placed in reputed companies. I am heartily thankful to all our faculties who are so knowledgeable and supportive. My heartfelt and profound thanks to my Mentor who was extremely supportive and who always appreciated & motivated me in front of the class after every presentation

In the end, I would like to Thank my parents - Mr. Narendra Kumar Shrivastava & Mrs. Kiran Shrivastava for being beside me and constantly pushing me to perform better and better, my friends & well-wisher for trusting my capabilities so much so as to clinch the zenith position of life.

Thank you so much IMS Ghaziabad!

IMS played a vital role in making me corporate ready. The values inculcated in me by at IMS would help me immensely in Corporate and Personal life. The leadership skills which were ingrained in me while organizing Seminars, Workshops, academic and non-academic events in the Campus would always stand me in good stead. The joy, mirth and happiness that we shared inside and outside the Campus will always be cherished. The college offers a pool of opportunities to its students; one has to use those opportunities to enhance their abilities. IMS helped me identify me latent potential and helped me have a wider horizon. I am grateful to all the faculty members and mentors at IMS for being so supportive. The motto of IMS, according to me, is “IMS is all about the people you meet and the things you create with them.”

Thank you so much IMS Ghaziabad!

Deloitte

“None of us get where we’re going alone. There are certainly times of solitude and loneliness on the entrepreneurial, creative, artistic, professional and personal pathways, but we’re not really all by ourselves. There is a crowd of people cheering you on, opening doors, and working behind the scenes. The quicker you recognize, the more motivated you’ll be, to keep fighting and make all of your dreams come true.” Similar is the narrative at IMS Ghaziabad which has helped many students like me to fulfill their dreams.

One should never give up their studies because of failure or hardship. I feel failure is there only for a short period and it helps us in climbing the ladder of success. I had a taste of failure; when I could not complete my Chartered Accountancy course and the dream of work with Deloitte became impossible. I decided not to give up my studies and my aim was to get a good job on the strength of a Good Education. Hence, I went on with PGDM @ IMS Ghaziabad. The Institute provided all of us a golden opportunity to work with Deloitte and finally I landed up a grabbing my dream job. This journey was only possible because of the team which helped me in getting admission - THE ADMISSION TEAM, which helped me in grooming, nurturing and molding my career to a successful path - THE FACULTY MEMBERS, which helped me to step in to a successful organization - THE CRC TEAM and finally MY PARENTS who have always supported me during my journey and letting this dream become reality

My PGDM experience was so fulfilling and excited that I can never forget, specially the hostel life and all the cultural activities. I passed through many phases and from all the phases I learnt some lessons which helped me a lot. I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to God, and to everyone who has been part of this successful journey. I wish all the very best to all the upcoming batches as they would be the luckiest one to get many opportunities and exposures at IMS.

THANK YOU IMS!!

When I was taking admission at IMS GHAZIABAD then I was little confused about the placements because it was very typical to find the place, where you start your career because According to me your's first job creates your impression for the future but now my decision of taking admission here provides me the path for my first job when I got selected in AXIS BANK as ASSISTANT MANAGER.

I am very thank full to Director URVASHI MAKKAR, all CRC members and last but not the least my family without them my dream would always remains dream for me.

I will never forget college life, events where participated lot and others like Marketing first assignment and all my family members.

On the other side along with this the practice session of GDPI for the placements that was very good,because without this we never achieve the goals.

markets & markets

IMS Ghaziabad is a milestone in the journey of my life which I would cherish till the very end. I stepped inside the campus with lots of hopes and my parents’ dreams. The five day induction program was wonderful and I got a chance to listen to many eminent speakers. The management of IMS makes sure that each and every student is ready for the corporate world and they start it from the very first day.

The rigorous schedule, the assignments, the GDs, the surprise quizzes, alumni meet, industrial visits, presentations and many more other fruitful activities make you all set to step into the tough outside world of corporate.

The faculties in IMS are one of the best that one could get in any management college, and no doubt IMS stands proud in the top 20 B schools in India. Being from an engineering background, I always doubted how well would I be able to gel up with the management course but the skilled, experienced teachers helped me a lot. I experienced a very different and innovative way of teaching here by them.

The faculty related each and every concept of marketing with real life that no one could ever forget. I was taught the etiquettes and the corporate culture by the 8 weeks “Winning Mantra Program” which helped me a lot and boosting up and motivating sessions in PPSP classes. I thank faculty members for making the operation classes learning with fun.

For my successful journey from IMS to Markets and Markets, I would like to say a big thanks to our Director Mam, Dr. Urvashi Makkar who is always on her toes to help her students to achieve success.

And at last, my message would not complete unless I thank the backbone of the placement activities of IMS Ghaziabad – The CRC Team. After all it is the placement at last that counts for students and their parents. I was one of the CRC members and I have seen how hard each and every CRC staff works to make sure that each and every student is placed happily.They have done their best from the very beginning; be it giving individual feedback to every student after the CRC evaluation or be it motivating and inspiring them after any rejection. I got opportunities to sit for many big organizations which I dreamt for. I am successfully placed in Markets and Markets.

I still remember the words of the CRC Team which they made it true, “ It’s not far when every student of IMS Ghaziabad will have 2 to 3 offer letters in his/her hand”.

A big thanks to everyone associated with IMS that helped to reach here and helped to get on to the way of success.

PGDM journey has been a voyage of self-discovery and improvement. I picked up number of skills here and had lot of learning in this place. The day I entered in college each day brought new learning to me.

I initially had fear of public speaking and giving presentations but gradually I started enjoying it. I understood here that “There is no free lunch” means that you don’t get something for nothing. You get what you put in.

I am greatful to our director Dr. Urvashi Makkar for supporting us and providing a platform were we can fulfill our dreams. The academic pressure in the first year, and there is no easy way to say this, was tremendous. Nothing like what I have ever experienced in my life. Something I really appreciate now that I have crossed that stage under the guidance of one the best IMS faculties.

Apart for studies IMS gave me opportunity to be part and coordinate many events like Melange, International conferences, Inter Department Fest which constantly helped in grooming my personality. Moments which I spent while coordinating events in Mélange.

In the end I would like to thank my College CRC team because of them not only I whole PGDM batch (2012-14) had wonderful placements.

Coming from Financial capital of India (Mumbai) to Ghaziabad city had raised many eyebrows of my batch mates, friends and relatives.

All I just told them give me 2 years, and I will prove myself.

Starting with Induction Program, interaction with Faculties had given me relief, that yes I will get value of money or I can say Return on Investment.

By making us to pass such an rigorous training of classroom programmes, MDP, GDPI session and lots of extracurricular activities.

IMS had made me person where I had options of choosing and joining the companies of my area of interest.

Having a Faculties like Anagha Ma’am, Dhyani Sir who are not only my teacher but also my mentor. I am very much thankful to our director ma’am, marketing, operation faculties and CRC Team.

I am Rahul naam to suna hi hoga!!! Just kidding! basically i am from Kasganj which is nearby Etah. Coming form such a small town I needed lots of development in me. IMS Ghaziabad's interactive learning course curriculum and exposure to speak in front of public, giving presentations and participating in different cultural activity inculcated a lots of potential in me and now i can say these all activities made my a good speaker and developed lots of soft skill in me.

Now I have 3 jobs in hand but placement in Berger paints is like my dream come true as I did my summer internship at Berger itself so i always wanted to join such kind of MNC.

And at last i want to thank my mom who prayed for me a lot and my close friends who supported me at each and every stage of my life.

Learning is a key to success, and with this dream I always moved on in my life. I always want to learn more and more. With the same thought in mind it was 17th august,2012 when my life took a big turn towards my success. It was the day when I entered one of the most premier institute IMS,Ghaziabad. I entered the institute full of dreams to learn and become a successful person in my life. This was the day when my institute welcomed all the PGDM 2012-2014 batch. The time I entered, unexpected started becoming expected. Looking at the infrastructure, the professional dressing, that high level of standard in people which made me dream more higher and higher.

We were welcomed with an Induction program of one week where we were given chance to interact with successful people of corporate and learn many things from them. Slowly time moved on and I started think big and also started learning something new everyday. My institute then gave me a chance to attend international and national conferences which was like dream coming true. Institute organised many cultural as well as college festivals in which I was given a chance to coordinate and develop leadership skills. My life was becoming full of learning everyday. Time moved on and learning increasing day by day. My institute developed and groomed my personality with the help of Personality Development classes who made me aware of what corporate are all about and taught us ways to groom our personality and get recognised in corporates where we need to face tough competition.

This helped me in my summer internship program at Ernst & Young to prove myself the best among all.Time moved on and finally with the help of our great CRC team who played the most important part of my life and acted as a right hand of the institute in making students available with best job opportunities. I am really thankful to our CRC team for the best support and giving me a chance to get placed in PepsiCo.

I heartly thank them and promise to prove myself the best among all.Last but no the least Dr.Urvashi Makkar,Director IMS who acts as the pillar of the institute. I am really thankful to madam for giving me such wonderful exposures and groom my personality .I promise that I will make my institute feel proud of me and will always make my institutes name the best among all.Thanks to IMS giving me the confidence of surviving in corporate and I feel proud to be an IMSIAN. I specially want to thank our faculty for supporting and guiding me at each step of my life at IMS. Thank you all again for this support and the best guidance I could ever get.

"Failure is the highway to success. "If you want to succeed, double your failure rate." If you study history, you will find that all stories of success are also stories of great failures. But people don't see the failures. They only see one side of the picture and they say that person got lucky: "He must have been at the right place at the right time."

ILet me share my life history with you. I failed during my 10th pre-board examination. I failed to qualify IIT. I failed to qualify NIIT. I failed to crack interviews during my graduation. I failed to qualify CAT, but manage to qualify MAT.

Ending days of the year 2011 bring news for me that changed my life. It is that news that brings me here where I am right now. News was that I got admission in IMS. I have heard of this institute from my father's colleagues that it as a one of the best institute in terms of study and reputation in comparison to other B-School.

From Induction to the end of the session IMS organized so many workshop, visiting faculty lectures, Business games to enhance your capabilities, to show that you have the capability within yourself you just have to realize it. IMS also organized International Conference so that their students can present the research papers. IMS also organized cultural events and also Inter College fest "MELANGE"

Faculty members here have great knowledge of their field; they have 100's of example in their pocket to make you understand one little concept. They used audio, video clippings and even a full movie to make u understand. They don't take lectures, students takes lectures what I mean to say that their lectures are so communicative that students tends to say more in the class than the teacher itself, ideas automatically starts generating in my mind. Lots of activities that were done in the class helps me in getting my mind think of ideas that normally I couldn't have. And that helped me in getting my first job of my life In PEPSICO INDIA HOLDINGS Pvt. Ltd.

PEPSICO, it does not require any explanation, the name itself is enough, and IMS provided me with the opportunity to sit in the selection process of the company and here I am working as CE of Pepsico India and within two months of the training I have been assigned a territory and even got appreciation because my territory is performing according to their expectations.

Rest of my success story is yet to be written…………………

Feeling Nostalgic...!! Just an hour before was sitting inside my office cabin and was just brushing up the official mails and in the mean time my eyes were stuck on todays date that is 12th march 2014, which means its now less than a month IMS PGDM chapter will be forever closed. I still remember when I came to this college for my GDPI in the month of February. I had multiple doubts about the placements, faculties, and many more issues. Well slowly and gradualy it all started. One thing I always used to say my self that is "I CAN and I WILL because its my life and I need to make it large".. Well I dont know from where to start and where to end. Section B, I miss you all buddies I was totally blessed to have the best faculties. My sincere thanks to Director maam Dr Urvashi Makkar. Thank you so much maam for giving me this platform and your constant support and guidance. Last but not the least my sincere thanks to my very own CRC members Prof Rohit Shegal sir, Swarnpreet Sir, Charu ma'am, Nidhi Agarwal ma'am.

"If A is a success in life, then A equals x plus y plus z, where hard work is x, y is overall personality development and z is faculty Support & mentoring." My journey from IMS to Boardroom is a result of same equation. From the first day onwards, when I stepped into campus of IMS to attend 5 days induction program of my batch 2012 – 2014 to the day of getting a name of Vipiee GAURAV (As VIP Industries employee is called by the name as Vipiee_their name), it was being a worthful and learning days of my life. My life at IMS was much more than going to class and making the grade. The life outside class room was even more fostering. Friendship, clubs, campus events, sports & recreation and annual fest hence excitements, were the ingredient of my upheaval.

IMS enriched with best academic faculty, academic support centers and labs, Library endowing knowledge through books by numerous authors on a particular title & journals, Mentor counseling and stress management through personality development sessions helped me to learn beyond the course selection and degree requirement. My academic coaches helped me to get connected with other recourses from online information to skill workshop to appointment with other support area, depending upon my unique needs. Their teaching beyond the usual focus of course outline created opportunities for me to flourish in areas in which I am passionate about. There was variety of entertaining and engaging activities within the campus for me to get involved, to do and hence to nurture.

With constant support of director, all faculties, administration dept. and most talented CRC team, I also got privilege of begetting dual job offer from VIP Industries and IndusInd Bank till date. Corrugating my words, I just want to thanks IMS fraternity, my family & friends for their support, love & affection.

Walking down the lane and the time has come to say good bye to everyone with tears in eyes with tons of memories, smile & tears, happiness & frustration. Moments can't be folded in few words but I would like to express it in my own words. On advice of my senior colleague of my grad times, I joined this program & campus with lots of expectation, that one day I will get a job with stability to earn well. And with passage of time tremendous makeover that I could felt I got. And then discover myself with various caliber & dimension I had unexplored earlier. I became leader who can handle not only pressure but can deliver performance on time. In totality from day one Induction program to presentation, GD, surprise quiz, live projects, fest, Microsoft classes, seminar & conference with PHD CHAMBER, FICCI & ASSOCHAM, industry visit to PRALE, MOTHER DAIRY, & YAKULT exposure I got. And this was first time I lived in hostel so that was thing I was afraid of but all ended at good note. Alumni talk series gave new knowledge of world out there. And placement drive started, in my second appearance of placement drive I achieved Deloitte in my bag & I became Mr. Deloitte of my campus my friend call me now with this name. And at last this all would not have been possible without constant support of our Director Urvashi Makkar Mam ,our faculty members and most important CRC team. Family & friend where continues with me for every corner of life.

Determination to achieve the goal of becoming a successful management graduate with good score and handsome package was the major driving force in my life, with clear objectives and passion to achieve them. My journey began with getting admission in IMS College and then the first day in the campus started with the induction of five days where we were addressed by some of the eminent speakers sharing their experiences with us.

The knowledge and learning was provided by the faculties in the lectures, apart from this they were always ready to help the students whenever they had any difficulty in studies or personal problems. It was not only studies but for the overall development of the students there were quiz, group discussions, presentations, mock interviews, role play, projects, etc.

There were committees which were formed for the grooming of the students, I feel proud to be part of CRC committee apart from this there were cultural fest, sports fest, departmental fest in which I coordinated, participated and got a chance to prove myself. There were many plant visits such as Parle, Mother Dairy, Yakult, etc. Also there were Alumni talk series and guest lecture which showed us the right way for our future.

I also got a chance to coordinate and participate by presenting a paper in the international conference which took place in our college in the presence of some of the great personalities. There are some priceless moments which I had spent having fun with my friends, getting up early in the morning and going to the college regularly which I will never forget.

Without any notice how the time passed with all the activities going side by side started the placement activity with a lot of companies visiting the campus for different posts, profile and package, I feel lucky to be placed in two big companies which are Total oil India private limited and Markets & Markets.

In the end I would like to thank our director mam Dr. Urvashi Makkar for her constant guidance and support, also all the faculty members, all the CRC team, my friends and family who were always there whenever I needed them.

Combination of a lot of good words and embellished phrases would definitely be a perfect idea when it comes on putting across a thought about MY IMS. However being very compliant and jaunty I want to elongate a heartfelt gratification to every single associate of IMS. And even more for making me capable of being Mr. Deloitte (My friends call me sometimes), being placed in one of the best avenues of the industry. The prospect of sitting in the classes was always elating. There was something that reached beyond the course curriculum and beckoned my spirit to make me not only a better student but an all-rounder, well acquainted and ready to go.

Different fests and other events taking place in the college gave a heuristic exposure towards perfection, guidance was always complimentary and handy with me as a learner. The imperative part of these two years 'IMS HOSTEL' A home away from home, good friends and acquaintance never made me feel part.

Feel like penning down each day spent here, since words are not enough all I can give is a proud feeling of forever being a part of IMS PGDM batch 2012-14.

Ceasefire

When I was interviewed for the admission in IMS by the faculty members I came to know that this is the place I can step in to improve my future. As he told me the basic funda of accounts then and there .In this whole journey I would never forget the presence of few faculties in IMS without them I could have never learned Four P's of marketing to Macro-Economic factors, Chi-Square tests to SPSS Tools, Motivation Theory to Managerial Communication.

In 1st year when we conducted Mélange I was a part of marathon as a co-coordinator but when I saw many of our faculty running in marathon for a cause it gave me a great enthusiasm and then and there I decided to run for the cause next year and you all wont believe I ran the whole stretch having my own weight of more than 100 kg.

On a serious note, the practice sessions of group discussions and personal interviews for placement readiness was exemplary it would not have been possible to crack the interviews and GD rounds of any company without them.

My journey at IMS Ghaziabad started on 15th July, 2012. I still remember the first day of Induction programme when I was really nervous as I had entered into a totally new environment. I saw all new faces and found a sense of sophistication in everybody. The environment in IMS was extremely energetic. I realized that my life is going to be changed soon.

Somebody has rightly said that IMS is a Temple of Knowledge. The way IMS has transformed my life is unbelievable for me. I have started looking towards my life in a completely different way. I feel proud every time I tell anyone that I belong to IMS. The shear excellence of this institute has not only influenced me but many others. I am also fortunate that I got the opportunity to study with very talented, dedicated and interactive batchmates.

IMS Ghaziabad is a milestone in the journey of my life which I would cherish till the very end. When I was taking admission at IMS Ghaziabad, I was little confused about the placements because it was very typical to find the place, where you start your career.

I still remember when I came to this college for my GD & PI in the month of May'13. I had multiple doubts about the placements, faculties, and many more issues but, the five days of induction program was wonderful and I got a chance to listen to many eminent speakers.

The management of IMS makes sure that each and every student is ready for the corporate world and they start it from the very first day. Well slowly and gradually it all started. IMS Ghaziabad gave me chance to attend international and national conferences which was like dream coming true. Institute organized many cultural as well as college festivals in which I was given a chance to coordinate and develop leadership skills and there were many plant visits, and also there were Alumni talk series and guest lecture which showed me the right way for my future.

IMS Ghaziabad developed and groomed my personality with the help of Personality Development classes who made me aware of what corporate are all about and taught us ways to groom our personality and get recognized in corporate where we need to face tough competition. Section C, I miss you all buddies I was totally blessed to have the best faculties.

Time moved on and finally with the help of our great CRC team who played the most important part of my life and acted as a right hand of the institute in making students available with best job opportunities. I am really thankful to our CRC team for the best support and giving me a chance to get placed in ICICI Securities.

I heartly thank them and promise to prove myself the best among all. Last but not the least Dr. Urvashi Makkar, Director IMS who acts as the pillar of the institute. I am really thankful to madam for giving me such wonderful exposures and groom my personality. Proud to be an IMSian!!

Life has given me many highs to feel proud and lows to learn from it. It was an intelligent decision of choosing IMS Ghaziabad as my road to success. The ride started with an induction programme which gave a central idea of how I will be taught, trained and tested to perfection in order to match the following corporate demands. I knew there's a lot in store for me in this PGDM programme. Faculty members gave us a warm welcome to our batch. The knowledge and depth of domains were clearly reflected from their respective lectures. The academics were just so good to make me feel time well spent. There were addition of new dimensions to thinking, perceptions and application of classroom teachings. Being a sports captain in school for a long time, the hectic schedule of classes, events and internal evaluation never hindered my mind. Rather i enjoyed being busy all the time facing new challenges, encashing new opportunities.

Whereas the extra-curricular activities are concerned, the extrovert personality of mine can't be shadowed. I loved to take part in Skits, Fashions show in Melange and enjoyed being a part of the Melange's promotional committee. Attending several conferences and events outside the IMS campus was much of importance and knowledge, courtesy of IMS Ghaziabad's corporate associations and brand image. There is no scarcity of opportunities here.

I did my summer internship in Pepsi co. where I got to know their exact work culture, their vision and missions. It was complete package of inferences that was extracted from those 2 months which helped me in improving my skills and personality. One and half year passed and the placement session started, it was like the time passed so quickly and now I am at the start of new stage. I am grateful to say I got placed in Vodafone as a Management Trainee as I am fully satisfied with the learning and experience which is being inherited.

I would like to thank our director ma'am Dr. Urvashi Makkar, for providing these opportunities to us. I would also like to thank my faculty members under whose guidance and support I stepped on to whole new level of success and their contribution will always be cherished by me. I would like thank CRC Team of our college for their continuous efforts towards our betterment.

"It's just the Beginning….."

The Kick-start of a long journey of an ordinary student…from an ordinary background…with an extra- ordinary dream to reach a goal, where happiness dwells. "

Like every other student in a batch of 120, when I stepped into this college, I had some mixed emotions. A combination of happiness, enthusiasm, dreams, passion and nonetheless FEAR...I started my journey. It was not easy for me at the beginning to come from WEST BENGAL all of a sudden and start a new life. But somewhere amidst of everything there was always a beep of my mind & heart saying…." After all this is something what you wanted, so go for it"…and this is how self-motivation started.

The most beautiful thing I saw was such diversified people…coming from different places, having different mother tongue, different habits, superstitions…ha-ha…amazing experience. All and above I was surrounded by intellectuals and that was really a cherry on the top for me. It was like a well- frog getting a first real time exposure to a vast ocean.

Then, classes started, all brainstorming, one heck of a life….but always knew….these are for my own good, how hectic the schedule may be and off course I was not the only one to suffer, there were 99 more to feel the same. One thing about IMS….teachers are really awesome….big minds, master planners….in a good and bad sense equally. They knew where to and how to trigger the students to make them work harder, this was the good part. Talking about the bad part…They don't let you enjoy with your family more than 5 days. NO LONG HOLIDAYS….

In IMS focus lies not only on competition but introspection carries more weightage and after two years of rigorous training, a student evolves into a true professional. Here an honest, sincere and hardworking student never goes unrewarded. The teachers, infrastructure and the environment are world class. I strongly recommend IMS to those students, who are looking for opportunities to learn, grow, evolve and finally get jobs in reputed companies.

"I never dreamed about success, I worked for it. Success don't come to you, you go to it".

I came to IMS Ghaziabad for my PGDM. I was thinking that my decision of joining this would be fruitful to me or not. My journey begin with getting admission in IMS Ghaziabad and started with the induction where we were addressed by some speakers sharing their experience. My admission to IMS is one of the achievements which I can count upon. Getting into ITC Limited has always been a company which I have dreamt for. When I got the placement in the ITC Ltd I was not able to believe but this all happened because of IMS and my self confidence that my dream came true. "

Apart from this life in IMS was very good I stepped into the campus fest, sports, melange and annual fests. I also got the chance to be head in the internal promotion team of melange 2014. IMS enriched with best academic faculty, academic support centres and labs, Library endowing knowledge through books by numerous authors on a particular title & journals, Mentor counselling and stress management through personality development sessions helped me to learn beyond the course selection and degree requirement.

And at last this all would not have been possible without constant support of our Director Dr. Urvashi Makkar Mam, our faculty members and most important CRC team.

"To the every Question, You are the only Answer. To the every Problem, You are the only Solution."

I remember the day of GD/PI at IMS, when my father told me to join this college without giving a second thought. Curious about my future, I never knew it will be the best college to get admission into. Hence, now I can proudly say "IMS has helped me to answer all my questions."

Initially it was difficult for me to understand the whole curriculum as I am from engineering back ground, but with the help of the unique way of teaching used by all the faculties, it was easy for me to comprehend all the managerial concepts meticulously. The faculty members- Dr. Timira Shukla, Prof. Vijendra Dhyani, Dr. S. K. Dube, Prof Divya Bansal, Dr. Anita, Dr. Rinku and Dr. Tapan Kumar Nayak; all have been very supportive all throughout. Interactive classroom activities, regular GD's and presentations during these two years have helped me to improve my personality.

Not only the faculties but also the whole placement department- Mrs. Charu Sharma, Mrs. Nidhi Aggarwal, Mr. Swarnpreet Singh and Mr. Rohit Sehgal; have always been very supportive and have guided me constantly at every footstep. The regular encouraging sessions of Director Mam, Dr. Urvashi Makkar, have boosted my inner self to always strive for hunger to achieve more and more.

It's indeed a life time opportunity to be allied with a college like this where the focus is not only on studies but also on the overall development of the student so that they prove to be good managers in the future. In a span of two years, IMS has given me the exposure to different events like cultural fests, alumni talk sessions, industrial visits, inter-departmental fests, conferences at international and national level, many certification courses and the "international trip to Dubai"; which have given me the corporate exposure as well as the opportunity to show case my talent at diverse platforms.

I never knew the decision of taking up this college will end in getting a job in the most reputed brand of telecom sector. I never thought of being able to work before completing the PG diploma, but IMS has assisted me to achieve this. The connection with IMS is a lifelong stint and it's a pleasure to be associated with such a renowned college.

I will miss the classroom sessions and my batch of 2013-15 and the way, at IMS, students are not treated as one but as "Managers." and yes, I am proud to be the only girl in this batch in operation stream.

"IMS Ghaziabad = Land of Opportunities"

Time flies like free bird, you never know where it takes you. But whatever happens, it happens for good. With this view in mind I entered IMS GHAZIABAD. The time I spent here is like a dream come true and especially the ending days. I had lot of studies, presentations, GDs, quizzes and exams, But along with it I made friends here, did a lot of masti, outings, birthdays and parties.

The experience I gained here is everlasting. I devoted much hours for my studies, though I never studied so much in my school and graduation. We spent almost 8 hours in college and then in hostel the time goes in making reports and presentation. But it was quite known that this is preparing us to face the corporate world. The life is tuff but fruitful. Every day I entered my class with a view to learn something new through GD, quiz or presentation. Apart from this, the exposure given to us, as in, industrial tours, conferences and guest lectures was immense.

Now we come to the most important part that is my placement. I like the other students wanted a decent job with good package But life always is not so easy everybody has to go through hardships and struggles. I too had to face rejections which sometimes shredded me into pieces but finally I succeeded. I received three placements from here. I came up with bright colors taking 3 placements Dios Impex, Naukri.com and ICICI Securities.

I want to thank all my professors, my CRC people , my friends and last but not the least my director Dr. Urvashi Makkar. I feel happy to say that right now I am successful person scoring 8.3 CGPA and having 3 jobs in my hand and a lot of knowledge, experience and exposure faced in this competitive world. Hope students after me receive the same from our renowned college, skilled and knowledgeable faculty, wonderful CRC placement members, and humble Director.

Thank you IMS Ghaziabad !

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”

Even after completing my graduation my life was not on track because my expectations to develop my over all personality was still pending. Thereinmy next step - admission in IMS Ghaziabad, helped me in a holistic development of my personality. Getting a degree from an institute always creates an impact for an individual.But impact multiplies when add-ons are provided by the institution. The 7 certification courses and numerous soft skill trainings provided by IMS Ghaziabad shaped my career with a professional flavour.

In every field college has given me certain certification & that too free of charges which has actually helped me a lot to improve my overall personality. This is proved when I was selected during campus placement in Bose Corporation as a demonstration specialist. The International Tour allows me to learn a real life example of cross- culture management. I am so blessed that I have got the tireless support from our director Dr Urvashi Makkar and all my faculties for giving me full guidance and support whenever I needed them.

And special thanks to CRC team for making my dreams come true.

“The life of a PGDM student is not easy, because they are getting ready for the corporate world. And IMS Ghaziabad will leave no stone unturned for you to get ready.”

IMS Ghaziabad is a wonderful chapter of my life and will always be close to my heart. I entered this institute with lots of expectations and dreams. As the days were passed by, my decision proved to be correct. The 2 year journey of PGDM was a good blend of studies and co-curricular activities. I started getting opportunities for anchoring, singing, acting and of many more platforms wherein I showcased my talent. The faculty members are very supportive and ready to help you at any point of time. The major credit of my success goes to them because they taught me the way to become a corporate professional from a raw student.

From extensive classroom sessions to rigorous GDs, MDP and extracurricular activities I learnt many things. The exposure is endless ranging from Corporate Interface series to Alumni Talk Series; from Seminar/conferences to International Study Tour everything has only motive behind which is holistic development of students.

And this is the reason today I have option to choose beginning of my career with 2 big brands TATA TELESRVICES LIMITED & ICICI SECURITIES. I am thankful to our Director ma’m, faculty members, CRC members for the wonderful placements of PGDM (2013-15) batch.

I was an ordinary graduate and then PGDM from IMS Ghaziabad changed my school of thought completely. IMS Ghaziabad is a milestone in the journey of my life which I would cherish till the very end. I stepped inside the campus with lots of hopes and my parents’ dreams. The five day induction program was wonderful and I got a chance to listen to many eminent speakers. The management of IMS makes sure that by the end of course, each and every student should be ready for the corporate world and for that the preparation started on the very first day.

I am grateful to our director Dr. Urvashi Makkar for supporting us and providing a platform were we can fulfill our dreams. The academic density in the first year was tremendous, and there is no easy way to escape. Nothing like what I have ever experienced in my life. I felt paradigm change in my perception and motivation.Something I really appreciate now that I have crossed that stage under the guidance of one the best IMS faculty members.

The intellectual capital in IMS are one of the best that one could get in any management college, and no doubt IMS stands proud in the top 20 B schools in India. Tumble of GD and case studies practices, plenty of management concept always fascinate me to attend regular classes.

My institute gave me enormous chance to attend international and national conferences which was like dream coming true. Institute organized many cultural as well as college festivals in which I was given a chance to coordinate and develop leadership skills. My life was becoming full of learning every day. Institute developed and groomed my personality with the help of Personality Development classes who made me aware of what corporate are all about and taught us ways to groom our personality and get recognized in corporates where we need to face tough competition.

These teachings helped me in my summer internship program at Reliance Life Insurance Corporation, to prove myself the best among all time moved on and finally with the help of our great CRC team who played the most important part of my life and acted as a right hand of the institute in making students available with best job opportunities. I am really thankful to our CRC team for the best support and giving me a chance to get placed in among the top brands Redington, Anchor by Panasonic and Expertscan Pvt Ltd.

IMS Ghaziabad is a milestone in the journey of my life which I would cherish till the very end. I stepped inside the campus with lots of hopes and my parents’ dreams. The day I entered in college each day brought new learning to me. I initially had fear of public speaking and giving presentations but gradually I started enjoying it. I understood here that “There is no free lunch” means that you don’t get something for nothing. You get what you put in.

IMS Ghaziabad's interactive learning course curriculum and exposure to speak in front of public, giving presentations and participating in different cultural activity inculcated lots of potential in me and now I can say these all activities made me a good speaker and developed lots of skills like Soft skills, Interpersonal skills, Live skills in my personality.

Time moved on and learning increasing day by day. My institute developed and groomed my personality with the help of Personality Development classes who made me aware of what corporate are all about and taught us ways to groom our personality and get recognised in corporate where we need to face tough competition. This helped me in my summer internship program at “AMUL” to prove myself the best among all. Time moved on and finally with the help of our great CRC team who played the most important part of my life and acted as a right hand of the institute in making students available with best job opportunities.

I am really thankful to our CRC team for the best support and giving me a chance to get placed in “Vodafone”.

It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things. IMS Ghaziabad under the stewardship of our respected management trustee Shri Rakesh Chharia Ji and director Dr Urvashi Makkar has actually become one of the most important stepping stone in my professional as well as personal career. With two years of experience in an MNC I joined IMS, which was one of the quickest decisions I have ever taken in my professional life. The expectations were quite high, and I feel really satisfied and proud to say it has been fulfilled. Sitting in just two of the brands and cracking both of them was only possible because of the guidance and intense support of the IMS fraternity.

I did my PGDM from IMS Ghaziabad. The good thing about my degree is that every trimester out of six, we get to experience different kind of management concepts. Once we have done a little bit of everything, we then get to decide what we would like to major in. I think it is a good way to create better managers because you get to experience everything and don't make any rash career choices, for the personal as well as organizational benefits. Summer internship placement in ITC ltd was a game changer for me; I have never looked back from that point of success. Every single day spent in here taught me something new, either related to personal approach or professional.

From the first day of my PGDM induction programme and the current day on which I am writing this story, I find a different and positive change in me. The biggest hand behind this change was none other than my respected faculty members from whom I have learned. The best part in which I was more interested is the extra-curricular activities, which actually helped me to approach towards a holistic development of my personality. It was only because of the institute and my friends in here, I understood that I have an edge towards event management, choreography and counseling people too. I got the opportunity to be associated with each and every faculty member through the events like the annual cultural fest MELANGE, various seminars and MDP’s, Management games and the international conference organized at the institute

The combination of two years of experience in market research in Tata consultancy services and a degree from Institute of Management Studies Ghaziabad with a dual specialization in Marketing and Operations proved to be the right decision after all.

Three months from now it will just be a memory, but the one which I would cherish the most of my whole life. IMS has given me a lot that words will not be enough to express my gratitude and respect towards it. Still I would like to thank the institute for creating such a platform for me and my whole batch, and would also like to be associated with the institute one way or the other.

IMS Ghaziabad is the best part of my academic journey. Being an engineer and then total change of stream was not an easy step. But the induction program of 5 days was a total brainstorming and eye-opener, which actually helped me in analyzing my skills and capabilities. I was very scared and excited for the classes but faculties were really supportive. GDs presentations held in class gave me confidence and helped me to understand the real meaning of "Budding Managers".

Organizing and being part of any event in the college whether it was academic event like International conference, Seminars, Conferences, Marketing fest or cultural fest like MELANGE, Departmental Fests was self-discovering. Each and every event gave me the learning of leadership and good team player skills. I learnt how to be more innovative in my thoughts and present it in the best way I can. The best thing was the motivation of my faculty members by their appreciation to my work.

I am thankful to our director Maam Dr. Urvashi Makkar who had always been a great motivator and had kept us on the right path from her continuous guidance, I am specially thankful to CRC, our faculty members Dr. Nandita Mishra, Prof Vijendra Dhyani, Dr. Timira Shukla , Dr. Vidya Sekhri, Dr. Neeraj Sanghi and last but not the least Dr. Tapan Kumar Nayak who had been always with us throughout our curriculum. Friends, juniors they had been the best support throughout. Words are not enough to express my feelings for IMS Ghaziabad.

I have been successfully placed in Spandana Sphoorthy Financial Ltd as a Management Trainee and will begin my career herewith.

Life won’t be same after few years but things that I will never be able to forget here would be the time and learnings I have got from IMS Ghaziabad. I feel proud to be an IMSian as from day1 we became the Brand Ambassador of IMS Ghaziabad.

Feeling nostalgic..!! As I know only couple of months is left in my journey at IMS Ghaziabad. I still remember my first day in induction program, having hopes and dreams but no idea how I am going to accomplish them. Sincere thanks to my honorable director Dr. Urvashi Makkar mam for providing me a wide learning platform through guest lectures, industrial visits and conferences, which has helped me to grow as an individual.

At IMS Ghaziabad, I have lived a transformation life from amateur thinker to a real life practitioner. My journey was engulfed with lots of new and untouched areas of learning. I heard the term "BE PROFESSIONAL" many a times in my life… but here I got the real meaning of professionalism. It's nothing but working towards your goals gradually till u achieves success.

My sincere thanks to my faculties Dr. Tapan Kumar Nayak, Dr. Nandita Mishra, Dr. Anita Singh, Prof. Vijendra Dhyani for their constant support & guidance. Last but not the least my CRC Team; a special thanks to Rohit Sehgal sir, Swarnpreet sir, Nidhi mam & Charu mam because of your endless support and effort today I am successfully placed in Deloitte.. it's like dream come true.

Finally I would like to say that I am going to miss my 2013-15 batch, and even my nickname which everyone used to call me "people's choice". But really it was a prodigious and unforgettable 2 years with them.

Thank you everyone. Wish you all a great future ahead.

The PGDM syllabus prepares me to think of an end-to-end strategy for a business and implement an action plan for the career development. It also gives an overview of human resources, finance, marketing and other aspects of management. Intellectual Faculty Members who are able to link their experiences with the case studies presented. We got real-world examples from a real-world practitioner, which helped us connect theories much better.

The modules made us keenly aware of the many biases we carry while making business decisions and taught us how to eliminate them to arrive at better decision-making. They helped us realise the importance of looking beyond mere numbers and consider ground realities while making business decisions. The course material and entire syllabus was very well thought out and tailored keeping in mind the needs of corporate world. The most important lesson I have learnt here is that communication is very important and for a techno managerial professional it becomes the key to success.

Coming to placement, IMS Ghaziabad always prepares its students not only for placement but for career development. Their main focus is on intensive personality development and intellect improvement. My aim was not to get only placements, but to work for premium brands and with a worthy profile in hand that would justify my academics and scholastic credentials. Receiving a Pre-Placement Offer (PPO) during my SIP from ITC embarked my journey of success and marked as the first placement of our batch in IMS Ghaziabad. Hunger for achieving more kept driving me on and on and in due course of time dramatically bagged two more offer letters from campus till date-First Vodafone India and then Lava International Ltd. This is just the beginning with 3 offer letters in hand and I am sure to turn it on big time in coming days to set new standards of success with more to explore and more to achieve in alignment with my potential and with the much needed corporate experience in hand, I will pave the path for others to follow me in next few years.

Thank you IMS Ghaziabad !!

“Knowledge gives discipline, from discipline comes worthiness, from worthiness one gets wealth, from wealth (one does) good deeds, from that (comes) joy”

Learning is the only key to success, and with this dream I always moved on in my life. The day I entered in IMS Ghaziabad, each day brought new learning to me. I am grateful to our director Mam Dr. Urvashi Makkar for supporting us and providing a platform where we can fulfill our dreams. The academic density in the first year was tremendous. It was like all the forces grinding your inner self to bring the best strength out of your shell. I am really blessed that now I have been successfully polished under the guidance of IMS faculty members. I initially had fear of public speaking and giving presentations, but my institute developed and groomed my personality with the help of Personality Development classes who made me aware of what corporate is all about. They taught us ways to groom our personality and get recognized in corporates where we need to face tough competition. The turning point was my first CRC evaluation; CRC team guided me about the tips of facing real interviews. I understood that “There is no free lunch” means that you don’t get something for nothing. You get what you puts in.

This learning helped me in my summer internship at Pepsico to prove myself the best among all. Time moved on and finally with the help of our CRC team who played the most important part of my life and acted as a right hand of the institute in making students available with best job opportunities. I got selected in a leading telecom giant - Vodafone as Distribution RM. Apart for studies IMS Ghaziabad gave me opportunity to be part and coordinate many events like Melange, International conferences, Inter Department Fest which constantly helped in grooming my personality.

I would like to thank my Director - Dr. Urvashi Makkar, Faculty Members, CRC team of Rohit Sehgal sir, Charu Mam, Nidhi Mam, Swarnpreet sir because of them not only I, but whole PGDM batch (2013-15) had wonderful placements. I would like to thanks to my family, my friends for their constant support, blessings, motivation, encouragement and for having faith in me.

Last but not the least I promise that I will make my Institute feel proud of me!

Well, I still remember the date I entered into the IMS campus. It was 16th July 2013. All puzzled and confused brains around, including mine. The five days of Induction program removed most of the spiders’ webs in the mind and a clearer picture had started to get painted and I started coming into the lime light from day one. Soon we received our time tables which showed that a lecture would last for one and a half hours which was the shock of our life for all of us and wondering how we will bear that or rather how our faculty will bear with us. But it was again a surprise of our life for all of us as we didn’t even come to know when those one and a half hours got over. The sole credit goes to the faculty members who make the classes not as lectures but as a discussion forum.

Soon I started getting opportunities for anchoring, dancing and in almost all the functions/ programs and committees at IMS Ghaziabad. I realized a good balance between the studies and co-curricular activities was important for me to excel and stand out in my work which was possible with the support and guidance of our Director Dr. Urvashi Makkar and all the faculty members with whom I have learned from Dr. Tapan K Nayak, Dr. Anita Singh, Dr. Rinku Sanjeev, Prof. Divya Bansal, Prof. Timira Shukla, Dr. Nandita Mishra, Prof. Vijendra Dhyani, Prof. Vatsala Agarwal, Dr. Yogita Sharma, Dr. SK Dube, Dr. Vidya Sekhri and of course Dr. Neeraj Sanghi, my mentor, who have helped me constantly for a smooth sail.

Within no time we entered the second year after SIP and soon the focus shifted to placements and there came the heavy investment and regular guidance of the CRC team. I sat for campus recruitment and got selected. Now that is not the highlighting factor. I was very keen and focused towards HR and specifically development area, and wanted that only. The highlighting factor is that I got selected into the parent company of a subsidiary firm that had come for recruitment with a much higher package that was offered and with a much interesting and challenging profile of my choice. I was the ‘demander’. Now I am happily placed into Varuna Integrated Logistics in the domain of HR and at the designation of Organizational Development Manager. This demanding power was because of the knowledge; correct attitude and with the help of the exposure that I got from my faculty members, conferences, seminars, teaching pedagogy and holistic development ; which was built and developed in me during my tenure at IMS Ghaziabad.

Now as I said in the beginning that my painting was being made and now it turned into a beautiful canvas with all the resources provided by IMS Ghaziabad and I am sure that I will definitely meet the expectations of my parents, faculty members, and director and would fly high when IMS Ghaziabad is together with me.

I took admission in PGDM at IMS GHAZIABAD with confused mind about my carrier, raised doubts about specialization, direction less attitude but with big dreams in my eyes.

At the end of course, I would like to thank the entire IMS Ghaziabad fraternity to be a stepping stone in my life.

Since our whole career depends on what we learn and implement, I would like to thank all my mentors and teachers who guided me throughout the tenure of this course. The academic inputs and intellectual teachings gave me a direction to shape my career.

IMS Ghaziabad also helped me to polish my skills and knowledge by enhancing industry exposure through more and more group discussion, grooming sessions, giving opportunity to attend numerous no. of International Conferences, Seminars, Industry Visits, Live Projects, Corporate Interface series, Alumni Talk sessions and events held outside the campus.

I am very thankful to Director Dr. Urvashi Makkar, Prof Vijendra Dhyani sir, Dr. Nandita Mishra mam, Dr. Neeraj sanghi sir, Dr. Anita mam, Dr. Rinku Sanjeev mam, Prof. Divya Bansal mam, Dr. Vidya Sekhri mam, Charu mam, Nidhi mam, Rohit Sehgal sir, Swarnpreet sir and special thanks to Bijendra sir for their support.

I know it’s tough to pen down your journey, But I am happy that doing…it that’s only coz of you IMS Ghaziabad. Engaged in a job for nearly 7 months prior joining the PGDM, I have seen the grandeur of management in both professional and personal life but then doing it from a premier institute is an ice on the cake. I still remember the day when I came to IMS Ghaziabad for the GD & PI, I was largely impressed by the infrastructure and environment but still had multiple doubt about faculties and placements.

On the very first day of our 5 days induction programme, my all doubt flushed down by listening to the prominent stalwarts form the professional world on stage. This one and half year journey at IMS has not been less than a fairytale. Life at IMS was busy and so was I, thanks to the numerous events happening at IMS and I being a constitutional part of them. Be it confluence magazine editorial, be it the departmental fest committee, be it the 3 days-cultural fest MELANGE or the placement committee each and everything had a impact on the my personality.

Now what I would miss about IMS is everything, our honorable director Dr. Urvashi Makkar for making our batch privileged with Tons of opportunity that too free of cost…..!! My always supportive faculties Dr. Tapankumar Nayak – Programme Chairperson, financial proficient Neeraj sanghi sir & Nandita mam, Operational solitary S.K Dubey sir, Marketing genius Dhyani sir, Encyclopedia Timira Mam & Yogita mam, Causative Anita mam & Rinku mam, I would greatly miss my CRC team Rohit sir, Nidhi mam, Charu mam and Swarnpreet sir for grooming me to the best. My dear friends of section B, thanks for giving the opportunity of being the class leader.

IMS Ghaziabad proved as a major turning point in my life and upcoming career. The larger-than-life stage of holistic development and an INTERNATIONAL platform to start the career is just like a dream come TRUE…….!! I have been placed in two organizations, First is BUOY Group as a Global Business Development Manager, and will joining their Dubai office soon. Second offer is from Rubber Skill Development Council (RSDC) as a Management Trainee.

"Failure is the highway to success" If you want to succeed, double your failure rate."

Thought of doing PGDM just after finishing BBA was a perfect decision for me and somehow IMS Ghaziabad came as a blessing in disguise for me and finally acted as a stepping stone for success in my life. IMS Ghaziabad is a place where challenges are taken as a next step towards success and surely one can learn the hardships of corporate world after completing PGDM from here. There is no looking back for me now as IMS Ghaziabad has given me the platform to kick start my professional career in the best way it could have been.

I still remember when I came to this college for my GD & PI in the month of February’13. I had multiple doubts about the placements, faculties, and many more issues. IMS Ghaziabad is the Best Institute in Delhi NCR region in terms of Faculties, Industry Linkage and Corporate Interface. I am grateful to this Institute to provide me the requisite exposure that was much needed to take a glimpse of the corporate culture. Regular seminars, conferences are essential for every individual to understand the industry dynamics and latest trends. We could say that we are privileged enough to listen to some great speakers across varied industries and sectors who often made their ways to our institute to impart valuable knowledge from their vivid experience.

I was privileged to be a part of different events that have happened in this institute and I can proudly say that in most cases I have been an active member of those events that includes Cultural Fests, Alumni Meets, International Conferences, National Seminars and various co-curricular events. Even I have managed to do the most difficult thing during my stint here in IMS Ghaziabad i.e. gathering sponsorships from corporate. Even I got rewards and appreciation letter for my hard efforts also from the institute.

Group discussions and presentations being parts of the curriculum are deliberately kept to ensure that we are industry ready and have the requisite interpersonal skills to succeed in corporate world. I am thankful to Dr. Urvashi Makkar, Director of IMS Ghaziabad for her visionary leadership and her efforts to provide world class academic inputs. I would also express my gratitude to Management Trustee, Shri Rakesh Charria Sir for providing free of cost various certificate training sessions like MS- office, BSE, Prowess etc., Laptop, International Study Tour and world class amenities at our campus/hostel to all students.

Last but not the least when it comes to placements, I would say that IMS Ghaziabad is one of the best management institutes in India to provide the best of the placements for its’ students and has some of the best brands for its’ campus recruitment process. I am thankful to CRC (Corporate Resource Centre) again for the wonderful placements of the batch this season of which I am also a part of. I have been placed with Talent4Assure Consulting Services Private Limited as a Senior Executive - Business Development.

One thing I always used to say myself that is "I CAN and I WILL because it’s my life and I need to make it large". This journey is dedicated to the entire PGDM 2013-15 batch - “I will miss you all” and I was totally blessed to have the best mentors to guide me throughout my life.

My memories at IMS Ghaziabad are fresh in my mind yet falling short of words to express my feelings. My journey at IMS was not a planned one but I had the most profound experience of my life & it was superb. After completing my engineering in Computer Science, I had two options in front of me, first to join a job and pursue my career in Computers or to increase my domain knowledge & enhance my skills by taking up PGDM. I decided to give myself a chance to explore, discover and achieve more in life. A single step at IMS Campus was a giant leap for an aspiring student of PGDM. PGDM at IMS is not just the course, its way beyond that. From classroom discussions to GD's, Presentations, surprise quizzes, fests, live project, workshops, seminar, conferences etc, everything was wrapped up to make you confident enough to face the challenges of the corporate world. Each day was a new learning experience which helped me to emerge out as an all-rounder.

The backbone of the institute is the strong team of faculty which plays a big role in a student’s life, without which I would have gone astray. My heartfelt gratitude to the CRC team who gave me opportunity to present myself without hesitation in many reputed companies. They have done their best from the very beginning, from individual mentor sessions to preparing us for the interview and how to handle & facing pressure situations and rejections. All this was only possible because of the efforts put in by the faculty member and the CRC team to bring out the best of every student. As a result of which, i am a part of one of the biggest Consumer Durable Finance Company-“Bajaj Finserv”.

The most joyful part of these two years was my stay in IMS Hostel, new friends became the essential part of family and the time away from home was awesome. My success was possible because of the collective efforts and encouragement of my director, chairperson, faculty, CRC Team, friends and family.

IMS has added a new chapter to my life; a very colourful one with endless memories. I thank everyone for these wonderful two years. I will always be a proud IMSian.

Thanks to IMS Ghaziabad!!!

“A strong, positive self-image is the best possible preparation for success”

In 2014, I had to face a dicey situation wherein I had to make a choice; either to continue my Job at Adecco or join PGDM Programme at IMS Ghaziabad. I joined IMS Ghaziabad to get better option than Adecco & I can say that the decision which I took was very much correct.

IMS provided me the kind of platform where I got so many opportunities to learn & connect with corporate; whether it is live project or corporate interface series.

I still remember when I came to this college for GD/PI on January 23rd, 2014. I had many doubts on Placements, Faculties and many more issues but when I saw the placements of my immediate seniors. I become confident that definitely IMS will provide plenty of opportunities to get to a better working place.

The mock interview and PREP sessions really helped me to tackle interview questions. It helped me to figure out the best possible questions that an interviewer may ask in final placement interviews.

Thanks to the Faculty of IMS Ghaziabad who helped me to improve my domain knowledge & understand the corporate culture so that I can perform better in the future. A special thanks to CRC Dept. who gave me my dream opportunity – Berger Paints

Last but not the least, a heartiest thanks to my parents & friends who have always supported me

Time flies but memories reside inside you for a long time. IMS Ghaziabad has given me ample of memories which I will cherish throughout my life. Taking admission in IMS Ghaziabad had proven to be one of the best decisions of my life. After hearing from some of my colleagues and friends I decided to take admission here. The very first day of induction actually taught me that it is not going to be a cake walk. We were highly motivated by the alumni and the guests who introduced us to this new upcoming world of corporate. The first year was a guiding and a learning experience. Class room discussions and presentations were of great help to build my confidence and gain knowledge about different fields which definitely helped me in my placements. we were exposed to many guest lectures, industrial visits, live projects, seminars, International Conference and many extracurricular activities which some or the other way helped me in enriching my knowledge and enhancing my skills. We also had our annual fest mélange which gave us the opportunity to learn how to coordinate and organize events in a better way.

The knowledge and learning which was provided by my faculties benefited me a lot to crack my dream company Deloitte India. The mock interviews and personality development sessions conducted by the faculty helped me a lot to focus and enhance my skills and knowledge to crack this company. I would also like to express my sincere gratitude to the entire CRC team for giving us a number of opportunities and the best platforms where we could showcase our knowledge; talent and skill.

At last I would like to say that I owe my success to IMS Ghaziabad, Director Sir for giving me an opportunity to built a great career for myself and my friends who have always guided me and motivated me whenever I felt disheartened. I could not have wished for more than this.

THANK YOU SO MUCH IMS!!!!

When I started my search for the Best Management institute in Delhi NCR in 2014, I visited IMS Ghaziabad for counseling and information purpose, I was really impressed by the personal attention and the state-of-art infrastructure at IMS.

All facilities at IMS are Hi tech and Modern. The classrooms are well equipped; seminar halls are large with LCD projectors & multimedia facilities. The large reading hall & Wi-Fi campus makes students comfortable.

Separate boys and girls hostel with 24 * 7 security and full-fledged cafeteria gives you homely atmosphere. I will never forget the Mentoring & Counseling done by our faculties and guides. A separate mentor has been allotted to us to share personal as well as any academic problems. We have attended and organized many seminars, quiz competitions and learnt new cultures by being with students from other states at IMS Ghaziabad.

I got the campus placement in DCB Bank and I would like to thank CRC team, Faculty members & our Director. I am Proud to be an IMSian.

It was after 2 years of completing my graduation that I came across some good reviews about pursuing PGDM from IMS Ghaziabad, from one of my acquaintance who also pursued the same from the institute. Since it came directly from the person whom I could rely upon, I instantly made up my mind to pursue the same.

After getting admission to the college, it was time for Induction program which carried on for a period of 5 days where I got to understand the basics of the PGDM Program. It was led by many speakers and alumni who shared their wonderful experiences and motivated and guided us about the program.

On the first day of college, I met my colleagues and then we eventually became friends who played a very important role in being a great source of motivation. The faculty base, here, at IMS is so wonderful, helping and knowledgeable that every student finds it very easy to handle their problems or difficulties as the teachers pose to be a perfect solution and a great motivation to all. They are one of my major success factors here. It was their concern, help and motivation that I gained such confidence and became prepared for my career.

The PGDM course is accompanied by so many guest lectures and Alumni talk series, which are a complete add-on to the course since I got to learn the real life experiences and also, the various workshops, seminars and conferences helped me gain knowledge and enhance my skill set. The course is full of so many extracurricular activities which include various activities from different specializations, which are great fun as well as a great source of knowledge. So, the studies became a lot more fun apart from being studies only. Various group discussions and presentations were a part of the course curriculum which helped me improve and groom my personality.

The second year is a bit busy for every student as this is the time for placements. The faculty works so hard here to groom the students and make them placements-ready. So, finally when it was the time for placements and I was greatly assisted by my faculty who helped a lot in making all of us ready for the campus interviews by conducting various mock interviews and interactions with the Alumni. Many Preparatory sessions were also arranged and the students were prepared for the interviews in the best possible manner as they could be. The day came when I got placed in my dream company, Deloitte India, and I pay all my gratitude to my faculty in helping me and preparing me for such great career. It is all because of such great faculty and my dearest friends that I saw my dream come true.

Thanks to IMS Ghaziabad!!!

Learning is a key to success and with this dream I always moved on my life. I always wanted to learn more and more. It was July 15, 2014 when my life took a big turn towards my success. It was the day when I entered one of the most premier institute - IMS Ghaziabad. I entered the institute with full of dreams to learn and become a successful person in my life. This was the day when my institute welcomed all the PGDM 2014-2016 batch.

We were welcomed with an Induction program of one week where we were given chance to interact with successful people from Corporate and learn many things from them. Slowly time moved on and I started thinking big and also started learning something new every day. My institute then gave me a chance to attend international and national conferences which was like dream coming true. Institute also organized many cultural as well as college festivals in which I was given a chance to coordinate and develop leadership skills.

My first success in IMS was when I won debate competition out of 46 teams. I became also 3rd in Anmol Marketing plan contest. I also became the coordinator of IIM –A’s AMAETHON on behalf of IMS GHAZIABAD. It was the first time when IMSIANS visited and attended any workshop and conference in IIM–A. I also participated in Dr. Subhash Chandra Show, Zee tv, Zee news.

My life has become full of learning every day. Time moved on and learning increasing day by day. My institute developed and groomed my personality with the help of Personality Development classes who made me aware of what corporate are all about and taught us ways to groom our personality and get recognized in Corporate where we need to face tough competition.

I got my Summer internship in VODAFONE EAST LTD, DLF, KOLKATA which is the head office of Vodafone West Bengal. I was happy then because I had become the part of world’s second largest telecommunication company.

Another achievement, rather I would say the biggest achievement, was when I got placed in Nestle India Ltd, the world’s largest food and nutrition company.

For my journey in IMS, I would sincerely thank all my respected faculties, mentor, the whole CRC Team, our director, and last but not the least - MY FAMILY.

My memories at IMS Ghaziabad are etched in my mind yet falling short of words to express my abstract delight to join one of the biggest avenues of the industry “Deloitte”.

My journey at IMS was not a planed one but was a call from destiny which cannot be denied. A single step at IMS Campus was a giant leap for an aspiring student of PGDM. PGDM at IMS is not just the course, its way beyond that. From GDs to Presentations, from surprise quizzes to fests and endless conferences live project everything was wrapped up to make you more confident enough to face the corporate world. Each day was a new learning experience. And because of this learning I emerged out to be an all rounder and a strong personality.

The backbone of the institute is the galaxy of faculty which is an ocean of knowledge, without which I would have gone astray. My heartfelt gratitude to the CRC team which gave me opportunity to present myself without hesitation in many reputed companies. They have done their best from the very beginning, from individual mentor sessions to preparing us for the interview and facing rejections. I got shortlisted for Copal Amba as well. All this was only possible because of the charismatic outlook of the CRC team.

The most joyful part of these two years was my stay in IMS Hostel, second home with friends as my family, guide and everything else. My success was possible because of the amalgamated efforts of my faculty, CRC Team , friends and family.

The story doesn’t end here. It would be incomplete without acknowledging the efforts of IMS that made this possible. I thank everyone associated with the IMS family. I owe it all to this institute. I will always feel proud to be an IMSian. All the memories cherished will never fade away.

Hind Terminals

A theory in Physics states that a body must cross the force of limiting friction in order to be in motion. Crossing the ‘limiting friction’ was of prime importance for me, when I joined PGDM at IMS Ghaziabad in July 2014. In a span of 2 years, a lot of efforts took to make matter ‘in motion’ – classes, case-studies, group-discussions, personal interviews, placement preparation session, events etc. Eventually I got my beginning in the form of wonderful Placement in the Operations Division of Hind Terminals Pvt. Ltd.

The efforts clearly weren’t mine alone, but majorly that of the faculties and the placement committee in providing a potent direction and opportunities. However, I also cannot deny the involvement of each entity associated with IMS Ghaziabad – my batch-mates, my seniors, my juniors, the staff, the hostel – in contributing to the very environment, the favorable conditions in nurturing me out into achieving something substantial. The guidance and the corporate exposure– which started from the very first day of the Induction Programme - was key in aligning all the competencies, duly polished during the course of several academic and cultural events.

Being a part of the Institute’s Editorial Committee and the Anchoring Committee of various events provided a platform in not just honing my presentation skills but also in better adapting to a professional sense of being. The Summer Internship Programme ensured that while having hands-on experience, corporate learning experience is also provided to the students, leading to an easier transition into the impending company culture.

In conclusion, success doesn’t seem like one destination as of now, but a long way ahead. To derive from the film “Interstellar” – “We have always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible.” The way IMS Ghaziabad had influenced me is nothing short of an inspiration which allowed me to overcome an impossible for myself. The way it had always been, there are going to further instances of ‘impossible’ in the future but, the ‘inspiration’ shall continue in my efforts to‘re-define’myself in crossing them to newer and higher achievements.

I was an ordinary graduate and then PGDM from IMS Ghaziabad changed my school of thought completely. IMS Ghaziabad is a milestone in the journey of my life which I would cherish till the very end. I stepped inside the campus with lots of hopes and my parents’ dreams. The five day induction program was wonderful and I got a chance to listen to many eminent speakers. The management of IMS makes sure that by the end of course, each and every student should be ready for the corporate world and for that the preparation started on the very first day.

I am grateful to our Programme Chairperson Dr. Tapan Kumar Nayak for supporting us and providing a platform were we can fulfill our dreams. The academic density in the first year was tremendous, and there is no easy way to escape. Nothing like what I have ever experienced in my life. I felt paradigm change in my perception and motivation. Something I really appreciate now that I have crossed that stage under the guidance of one the best IMS faculty members.

The intellectual capital in IMS are one of the best that one could get in any management college,and no doubt IMS stands proud in the top 20 B-Schools in India. Tumble of GD and case studies practices, plenty of management concept always fascinate me to attend regular classes.

My institute gave me enormous chance to attend international and national conferences which was like dream coming true. Institute organized many cultural as well as college festivals in which I was given a chance to coordinate and develop leadership skills. My life was becoming full of learning every day. Institute developed and groomed my personality with the help of Personality Development classes who made me aware of what corporate are all about and taught us ways to groom our personality and get recognized in corporates where we need to face tough competition.

These teachings helped me in my summer internship program at IMRB International, Kolkata to prove myself the best among all time moved on and finally with the help of our great CRC team who played the most important part of my life and acted as a right hand of the institute in making students available with best job opportunities.

Apart from Director Sir, I would like to thank my institute faculty members. I’m very much thankful to Prof. Vijendra Dhyani (Genius of Marketing), Prof. Divya Gupta & Prof. Saloni Chitkara (Best in Quant’s), Dr. Yogita Sharma (Best Mentor), Dr. Ruchi Sharma (Specialist in Sales & Distribution), Dr. Sunayana Jain (Genius of Supply Chain), Dr. Vishal Gupta (Best in Project Management & Total Quality Management), Dr. Nandita Mishra (Brilliant in finance), Dr. Anita Singh (Best in HR), Prof. Soni Sharma (Best Motivator), Prof. Prachi Anand (Best Groomer) And my special thanks to CRC Team Rohit Sir (best in placements), Charu ma’am & Ankit Sir (best in taking out the mistakes and rectify them).

“If You Want Something you’ve never had, then you’ve got to do Something You’ve never done”

Life has given me many highs to feel proud and lows to learn from it. It was an intelligent decision of choosing IMS Ghaziabad as my road to success. The ride started with an induction programme which gave a central idea of how I will be taught, trained and tested to perfection in order to match the following corporate demands. I knew there's a lot in store for me in this PGDM programme.

IMS Ghaziabad has brought overall transformation in my life, it made me learn how to overcome your dismay. I got the opportunity by taking part in different fests and events that took place in college which has brought lot confidence in me. The best part of this college is that the focus is on overall career development of students not on placements through PPSP (Personal and Professional Skills) classes. I firmly believe one who possesses the determination and have patience towards his or her work will definitely succeed in life.

I did my summer internship in Outlook India. where I got to know their exact work culture, their vision and missions. It was complete package of inferences that was extracted from those 2 months which helped me in improving my skills and personality. One and half year passed and the placement session started, it was like the time passed so quickly and now I am at the start of new stage

I still remember how difficult decision it was for me to take admission in IMS Ghaziabad as at the same time I was having offer letter in my hand and was confused whether to go for job or to complete my post-graduation first, but after the end of these two years I can proudly say that my decision proved to be the productive one, the amount of learning’s that I have gained in IMS Ghaziabad is huge and definitely going to help me in my corporate life.

I failing to express my level of happiness after getting placed and having two offer letters in my hands and that too premium brands like DEUTSCHE BANK and DAFFODIL SOFTWARE PVT. LTD.. This would not have been happened without the valuable inputs and blessings from my faculties, parents and my friends.

A Sincere thanks to Programme Chairperson – Dr. Tapan Kumar Nayak, Faculty members, CRC team, other staff members and yes my whole PGDM Batch 2014-16 for their continuous support, encouragement, guidance throughout the journey of 2 beautiful years at IMS Ghaziabad.

I would also like to thank my junior batch 2015-17 for their love, affection for this last year that we had together. Life will be taking another transformation from here onwards; the moments spent here will be memories now. It feels good to be recognized as an IMSian and will surely going to miss each and every one

Proud to be an IMSIAN.
