Shantanu Sharma from the PGDM Marketing batch of 2025 feels “Placements are something on which IMT focuses a lot. After some days of entering the college, you will be having an interaction with the Placement committee. They will tell you all about the placements( summer and final), They are somewhat strict but that is something they should be because if they are not strict students will not follow their instructions and it will affect the image of the college in front of corporate players. You may opt out for placement if you want but if not then the college will do all the efforts to get you placed. placements are 100% since the inception of the college.” Read More

“The summer Internship week was hectic, I haven’t seen many companies come for hiring in my engineering days, so the experience was totally different. My dream company Microsoft was coming to campus and that made me the happiest alive on receiving the news. Everyone attended workshops on how to build the best CVs, and how to communicate better with a hiring manager. College alumni took sessions, talking about their days and how they attended the entire process. The days went by so fast. In MBA months pass by as days.” Read More

(DCP Batch 2025)
“The registeration process was simple. Inside the room there was a bed, chair, table, wadrobe and AC. The room is quite spacious for luggage. The only downside I would say from my point is view is that every floor has common washrooms which might be difficult to adjust for a few people. The mess food is very good here. From my undergrand hostel experience, I used to order food from outside quite a lot. But after coming to IMT Ghaziabad, I haven't had the need to order food from outside yet. So that tells a lot about the quality of the food offered here” Read More
