Prof. Shailendra Nigam: It varies according to different rating agencies. However, IMI New Delhi is ranked amongst the renowned institutes. IMI provides one of the best academic programs in terms of faculties, projects and corporate competitions. You will get very bright opportunities during the placement programme.

 

Ashik V A: I have done my Masters in Statistics. Would be great if you throw some light on the benefits of pursuing MBA with my educational background?

Prof. Shailendra Nigam: I must say, you have taken a good decision. Nowadays, Analytics is playing a pivotal role in management studies. There are many programmes which are specifically related to Analytics. So go ahead with your plan. 

 

Sandhya: My daughter is preparing for CAT exams. We are from South India, so would like to know whether she would be able to find students from our region?

Prof. Shailendra Nigam: We do have many students from South India. To be specific, 15 percent students come from South India and are faring well. 

 

Avinash: What is the CAT percentile criteria to get admission in IMI, New Delhi? Is there a sectional cut-off? Is there any reservation for scheduled caste/schedule tribe?

Prof. Shailendra Nigam: Last year, it was 90 percentile. The sectional cut-off was; 75 for Verbal Ability and Reading Comprehension(VARC), followed by Data Interpretation and Logical Reasoning(DI & LR) which was 70 and Quantitative Ability(QA)was 70. We do not have the policy of Reservation as we do not differentiate students based on their caste, creed and race.

 

Priti: I scored 73 percent in 10th boards, 74 percent in intermediate, 59.9 percent in BE Automobile Engineering. Now, how much should I score in CAT exam to join IIMS? If I get 95% percentile, does my chance get increased to get into IIM colleges?

 

Prof. Shailendra Nigam: Definitely. With your academic scores and 95 percentile in CAT; you can surely fetch a seat in one of the IIMs. As CAT is a shorlisting criterion, so one has to clear CAT exam first and plan for college later.

 

Vineet: If I have an academic backlog or lose a year during my graduation will that affect my MBA admissions especially during the interview?

Prof. Shailendra Nigam: Academic break or backlog will not affect your MBA admissions but your interview should go well. That is the most important parameter.

Can anyone provide me details about the student exchange program of IMI New Delhi??

Aarushi Makhija 14th Oct, 2019

We are moving from the culture of exclusivity to inclusivity, problems require solutions from a global perspective. IMI strictly adheres to its vision and mission of shaping global leaders through its international academic collaboration and student exchange programs. It is one of the seven B- schools in India to have received accreditation from the international accreditation agency, Association of MBAs (AMBA). AMBA is awarded to the best programs internationally and denotes the highest standard of achievement in postgraduate business education.

The student exchange program broadly helps in two ways, firstly it brings global business perspective and enhances the personality. The student exchange program propels students towards acceptance and understanding of different cultures. It provides the much-needed multifaceted approach to learning. In this fast-paced world awareness is a necessary trait, awareness not just about the surroundings but about the global issues. Secondly, the student exchange program at IMI enhances the exposure to global issues and increases adaptability of an individual. The only way to succeed in life is by pushing yourself out of your comfort zone. Landing into a foreign space and culture helps one move out of the comfort zone, it provides the strength to confront the challenges, ultimately leading to excellence. Language is the most common barrier one faces while dealing with people from different cultures. IMI through its student exchange program provides the opportunity to break such barriers by increasing the acceptance and understanding of different cultures. Besides cultural acceptance, the foremost important knowledge one acquires through the student exchange program at IMI is about the business at a global level and problem-solving approaches used by different people in different parts of the world. It prepares the students of IMI for global roles.

IMI has association with the world’s leading Business Schools like

  • NJCU School of Business (New Jersey)

  • Montpellier Business School (France)

  • IDRAC Business School (France)

  • KEDGE Business School (France)

  • Louvain School of Management (Belgium)

  • The Universidade do Estado do Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

  • ICPE (Slovenia)

  • Sichuan University (China)

  • Suleman Dawood School of Business (Pakistan)

  • RANEPA (Russia)

  • Academy of Public Administration under the aegis of the president of Republic of Belarus

  • Developpez Une Autre Vision Des Ressources Humaines

  • Grenoble Ecole de Management (France)

  • JAMK University (Finland)

  • Frankfurt School of Finances and Management (Germany)

  • University of Guelph

The presence of huge network and global association had helped IMI, New Delhi to provide the best international exposure to its students in terms of global business knowledge.
