Do you like this story?
1. Decrease in percentile for admissions
2. Sacrifice on job quality
There has been tremendous pressure of IMT Ghaziabad in terms of admitting students. The same admission form is used to admit students ranging from as low as 25% percentile in IMT Dubai to 95% in IMTG. The focus is certainly missing. What's more PGDM(MBA) is no engineering degree and students with work-ex like to have quality placements. If placements are happening where Tech firm is taking 100+ students I have my doubt to call it a placement even.
IMTG had never been like this and I have been admiring the institute for long. The institute has produced quality managers and had been serving nation for long. Only recently, there has been a shift to convert it to a money making machine. IMT name has been diluted to say the least with a student studying in distance learning to a student studying in IMT Hyderabad which is yet to make a name.
Few thoughts for aspirants to ponder upon:
- Increasing fees (What’s the ROI???)
- Pressure on quality of students with increased intake (Not long before we heard about the student unrest in IMT over the same issue)
- Decreasing high end management jobs at IMT (With 500+ students, can you get your dream job in a company looking to hire 2 candidates. What is your visibility?)
Through this article, I wish to ask why an aspirant with 95+ CAT percentile should join IMT?
