Have a question related to IMI Delhi ?

Hello,

Generally, many institutes have a residential requirement, especially for full-time programs, to foster a conducive learning environment and promote holistic development among students. However, since your home is just 15 minutes from the campus, you may want to inquire directly. Mostly they'll agree with you as it is not worth for your to stay in campus. So connect with them they'll surely agree on this.

Hope this helps you,

Thank you

Dear aspirant,

I would be judging these two institutes on the basis of placements.

So, IMT nagpur has a very strong placement cell. All the training and placement related stuff is handled by the placement team. The students are trained through various training programmes to enhance their communication skills.

Students are placed across various sectors such as BFSI ,IT and ITES , service , hospitality, e-commerce ,consulting ,power , manufacturing, FMCG and retail and many more.

Whereas imi new dehli does not have strong grip in its placements.

Hi Aditya,

It would be great and easy to provide you the answer if you mentioned the course you want to pursue from one of these colleges.  In my views, I would suggest you go with Jaipuria, Noida because it is better in various terms  as compared to imi Kolkata. See, choosing a college is quite difficult because there are several factors that one should verify firstly.

The factors that tells an individual which college is best, these are:

  • Qualified faculty
  • Environment
  • Placement ratio
  • Academics
  • Location

These things matter the most during pursuing of any course.

Thanks!!

Dear student,

If you were to take my opinion then i would recommend you to go for bml munjal gurugram because imi Kolkata doesn't have brand name, this is a drawback of this college.

The placements at bml munjal gurugram is far better than imi Kolkata because the median package is around 8L per annum. In case of faculty too bml munjal has an upper hand in comparison with imi Kolkata. The faculty members are very cooperative and helpful.

The infrastructure of both the colleges is at par . All the amenities are provided in the campus.
