Questions related to IMT Ghaziabad
Is PGDM from IMT gaziabad (Via distance mode) certificate eligible for appearing in UGC NET?
As you had done a distance certificate course of PGDM from IMT so you are not eligible for net exam on its basis.
Onlyits full time 2 years PGDM has MBA equivalence. To clear NET you need to have MBA or any masters degree or equivalent (in case of management education, AIU decides equivalence). IMT CDL is just a diploma and useful for gaining knowledge only. It does not have any academic or corporate value. IMT's full time PGDM has lot of corporate and academic value in contrary.
So it will be better if you do a degree course in masters like full time or part time mba from either IMT or any recognized university.
Hope this will help you out.
Good luck .

should i join IMT ghaziabad with a job in hand.
IMT GHaziabad is a good institute for management however, if you have job in hand and that job is a role which is in a core sector of your graduation, then I suggest you should go and do job at least for a year. An MBA without work-ex is not a good decision as the second year of MBA is all about those students who have some work ex before.
But if the job you have is not a good job but a BPO/Call center/non-core job then you can consider joining IMT.
Hope this helps. Thank you.
I have got 96.807percentile in my XAT2020 and I hadattended IMT Ghaziabad interview on 10/2/20 my academics are 10th-60%12th-57.6and i have done my UG in commerce with 55.6%. I haveworkex about 10-11 months and I am currently working, my GE at interview went good but my PI was avg Wt r my chances?
You really have good percentile in entrance exams which is a positive point but the boards marks are not so impressive. Many candidates will be applying IMT Ghaziabad and they will definitely select the ones who have good academic records as well as experienced. It seems that you have average chance at IMT Ghaziabad. You further don't have the advantage of a optimal work experience. Do keep a track of the wait-list movements also. All the best!
