Answer. Industry connection at IMM is an integral aspect of the curriculum studies. Industry personnel guest interaction sessions are organized by the institute.

Business Simulation Technique sessions are being organized to make students be aware of the SOPs of an organization. These activities together ensure a very strong mix of academic and industry insights.

I personally share the spiritual, value-based and powerful philosophy of Total Quality Person (TQP) as a workshop with all the students of IMM to ensure their holistic and integrated personality enrichment which helps them deal with stress and other contemporary challenges
