Excerpts from the Careers360 Live Chat with Snehal of IMT Nagpur
Hari: Can you tell the different locations of IMT campuses? Do I need to fill separate college forms for each location? Is it a mandate to stay on the campus during the course tenure?
Snehal: IMT is in Ghaziabad, Nagpur, Hyderabad and Dubai. You do not have to fill four different admission forms but a common form which is considered by all the four campuses.
College Comparison based on Courses, Placement, Rank, Fee
Yes, it a full-time residential programme and it is mandatory to stay in hostels within college premises.
Pooja: Most of the colleges concentrate on Marketing and Finance, but my interest lies in Operations. How good is IMT Nagpur in terms of Operations Management?
Snehal: In case you get PGDM core, you will be able to specialise in Operations. Alternately, in case you get PGDM (Finance) or PGDM (Marketing), you can opt Operations as your second area of specialisation. Last year, our placements of pass out batch were 90 percent.
Tarun: Can I opt or get transferred to other IMT campuses like Hyderabad, Ghaziabad or even Dubai? Please throw some light on student exchange programme?
Snehal: No, Tarun. Neither do we accept transfer request nor do we transfer students to other IMT campuses.
Anyone can opt for exchange program irrespective of your Majors.
Susmita: As per your pedagogy, Harvard case studies are used at your institute. Are these case studies directly taken from Harvard? Do you have any collaboration with Harvard University? Is there an opportunity for an international placement, especially in FMCG industry?
Snehal: Of course! We have a collaboration with Harvard University and take the case studies directly from the university.
Yes, much depends on how you perform in your academics and the placement interview. 91 percent placements happened in 2014 and 96 percent students were placed in 2015. The rest nine percent and four percent students respectively, have started their own ventures or had family business, so didn't opt for placements at all.
Ritu: What is the approximate fee structure for a 2 year MBA in Finance at IMT Nagpur? Do u provide international placements to students?
Snehal: The total expenditure for 2 years’ MBA course is Rs. 12 lakh which is inclusive of food and single occupancy accommodation.
Regarding the international placement- We generally do not offer international placement but much depends on the placement scenario for particular batches.
Ankita: Do u offer part-time MBA course in MIM (MASTER IN INFORMATION MANAGEMENT)?
Snehal: Sorry. We do not offer Masters in Information Management and also do not offer distance programme at IMT Nagpur.
Rahul: May I know the courses that IMT Nagpur offers and what are the CAT/CMAT/XAT/GMAT cutoff percentiles one must score to be a part of IMT Nagpur? Do you have a reservation for differently abled candidates, in terms of CAT cutoff percentile?
Snehal: In IMT Nagpur, we offer the following management programmes:-
Post Graduate Diploma in Management, Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Finance), Post Graduate Diploma in Management (Marketing).
Last year, the CMAT cutoff was 80 percentile. No, we do not discriminate students in terms of physical disabilities.
Anshu: Do I need to fill separate forms for all three programmes (PGDM- Full Time, PGDM- Marketing and PGDM- Finance)? Which are the entrance exams one must clear to get admission in your institute?
Snehal: You have to fill only one form but may fill your preferences in the same. The entrance exams that are accepted during the admission process are- CAT/ XAT/ CMAT/ GMAT.
Anshu: When does the recruitment/placement programme start? Is the programme, session-based or round-the-year? If someone applies during, say, between March and July?

Snehal: Last year, the highest salary offered was Rs. 17.8 LPA to a PGDM candidate. However, this may vary from batch to batch.
Arun: I do not have work experience and according to my research, experienced students get into cream companies with a good package. Is there a chance for me to get placed with zero work experience?
Snehal: Once you join an MBA programme, all students are equal in the eyes of the institute. Therefore, you definitely stand a chance. To be precise, we have seen freshers getting placed in good companies with a hefty package. Just check your eligibility and go for it.
Kripa: If I opt for PGDM, when will I get to choose my subjects during the second year? Heard about 75 percent mandatory rule to get eligible for placements? Is it true?
Snehal: You are required to choose your subject towards the end of the first year of the programme itself.
We have kept the criteria of 6.5 CGPA to appear for the placements. However, this is only to encourage the students to perform consistently well in academics throughout the study tenure.
Girish: In terms of ROI, how would you rate MBA Operations. Did you have enough students who opted for the same as their Major? Overall, how are placements in your college?
Snehal: Yes companies do come for Operations and is considered as one of the major profiles during placement. To name a few companies - GATI, Future Group, DHL, Orient Cement. Approximately 15 students opted for Operations. Few profiles that the students were hired for were Product Managers and Logistics. Overall, the pass out batch had 90 percent placements across domains.

Hello Dona Sheet
According to me, IMT Hyderabad is a better option. As per the analyzing report, IMT Nagpur has AAA rating and IMT Hyderabad has AAA+ rating. Companies visit to the campus IMT Hyderabad like Amazon, Wallmart, Deloitte, Variety Knowledge, HDFC, ICICI, TBRC, Novartis etc.
Kindly check the mentioned below links for more information about both the colleges.
Hope it helps you.
Both are the good colleges. But MBA from Christ University is better option as per the given reviews . It's a better option because you get a good job opportunity after doing MBA.
IMT is an established brand. Though the Ghaziabad campus is the oldest, among your options, IMT Nagpur would be the best. GLIM comes close but due to the PGPM course at GLIM , the placements and opportunities for PGDM at GLIM is limited. Welingkar can be preferred to its location but IMT being the brand that it is, leaves them behind.
Out of two it is better to go for IMT Nagpur. Atleast you get the brand name IMT moreover the placements at IMT Nagpur are way better than ISBM Pune. Also, I would rather suggest you to go for IMT Nagpur only if it is mandatory for you to pursue your PGDM this year itself. But in case you are in a position to take a drop and prepare simultaneously while doing some internship simultaneously, it would be a better choice. Although IMT Nagpur is preferable over ISBM Pune, but it would be a wise option to take a drop and try next year rather than joining these colleges.
Hi Nikhil, thanks for contacting Careers360. There is no fixed percentile placed by colleges and it varies every year based on their seat filling and number of applications etc.
However, Based on CMAT score you have the chances to get a call from IMT Nagpur & IMT Hyderabad. If you want to check your other colleges then you can use CMAT pathfinder Tool.
