The economic engine of the country is firing all cylinders. To continuously grow at the desired rate in excess of 8% year on year, it is essential to equip the industry with trained and qualified human resources. IFIM Business School was founded in the post liberalisation era to fulfil this need. The school has served the nation for the last 25 years and has provided the industry with business leaders who are poised to lead the nation into the 21st century.
This journey of 25 years has established IFIM Business School as one of the oldest private schools in the country which has consistently ranked amongst the top 50 in the country. This consistency has been achieved by investing into better faculty year on year and by creating world class infrastructure to impart learning of the highest order.
I credit this success to the faculty of the school which has been continuously endeavouring to innovate on the pedagogy by adopting the best practices available globally. A lot of this has been made possible by some our globally acclaimed partner institutions who helped mentor the school to maintain its ranking amongst the best. The Industry Internship Program offered by IFIM Business School helps our students experience a corporate environment during their tenure as students and helps them prepare for the real world experience. This has been appreciated by the industry as they are able to source “Ready Managers” from this business school. The 100% placement record of the school for the past so many years stands testimony to the success of this program.
The school prepares the student to manage work life balance efficiently. This is done by integrating wellness and personality development into the rigour of the academics. A well looked after physical self definitely helps our students enhance their endurance levels making them long term goal seekers. This coupled with a polished exterior makes them assets for the corporate world.
I am extremely proud to be associated with this institution as I can see the 25 year dream turn to reality of creating business leaders who are all set to Get Ahead in their lives and their respective careers.
With best wishes,
C D E Society
