that were taught to us. Add to that the CIM sessions conducted by industry leaders and
experts were highly insightful as real-life anecdotes have always been a great way to relate
to teachings and gain in-depth understanding of concepts.

IMT had undoubtedly helped in strengthening it further. I always suggest to not just rely on
campus placements and keep reaching out to your immediate and extended professional
networks.

of campus. In the end I would say that always try to get the best learning possible out of the
MBA course and I am sure one eventually lands up with the job of their liking, be it on or off-campus,” he says.
