My Journey at IMS Ghaziabad
Success Story:- From B-School to Boardroom
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.
PGDM 2012-14 (Axis Bank)
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 2012-14 (Markets & Markets)
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.

Finally I decided two go for Pgdm from IMS Ghaziabad. From the first day of induction Program, I felt paradigm change in my perception and motivation.

Last words, Dedication and hard work are the only way to bag a prestigious job! Have patience as the right opportunity will definitely come knocking!
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.

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…………………

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.

"My admission into IMS is one of the achievements which I can count upon. Getting into a Bank named Royal Bank of Scotland has always been a Bank which I have dreamt for and when I got the placement in the same I was not able to believe but this all happened because of IMS who converted my dream into reality. I am very thankful to God, CRC Team, my family and my friends because without there support this wont be possible.

"My journey to IMS has been a dream come true.Within a Blink of an eye my PGDM journey is on the verge to an end having a beautiful placement in ICICI Securities which i never thought of.I can say that my hard word my dedication and with the support of IMS Team this success came to my side.I would like to thank God,my Parents,Faculties,CRC Team and my Friends who always supported me during my failures and cheered for my success..Thank you all!"
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.

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.

I came to IMS, Ghaziabad for my PGDM in July 2012, I was thinking that my decision of joining this college would be fruitful to me or not. In beginning of session it was looking to be the wrong decisions but later on when I came to learn various new things and the best part of IMS is the knowledge part which is given by the faculties here, which cannot be expressed in words. They make full efforts to make the student to enhance his skills and furnish knowledge here by different types of activities like Presentation, group assignments , group discussions ,role plays and many more .
Finally after awaited for so much time the moment came and I got my first offer letter from ICICI securities ON 17/12/13 which was big day of my life and beautiful gift of year 2013 and for that I thank all my faculties , my friends and our college CRC team
