Remarks :

The reason why I chose IIAD was because of its Fashion Business Management course curriculum and its international recognition. Students enrolled at IIAD receives a Kingston University degree. The course curriculum for Fashion Business management is really holistic in nature and by the end of the degree, the student becomes industry-ready. The college has a non-conventional method of teaching and most of the learning is practically based. Also, each student gets required attention because of its student-teacher ratio, which is 15:1. Overall, till now IIAD has provided me with almost everything that I expected and I am learning a lot, both professionally as personally.

Remarks :

I am very happy to have chosen IIAD. My reasons to select it over the other private colleges: 1. They offer two degrees -I have graduated with an international degree from KU and another from Lingaya which is a UGC approved degree. At the time of joining, I wasn't sure what I would pursue after college so this degree made me feel secure about my future plans. Other private colleges didn't have this. 2. The teachers - I met some of them during the admission process and they were so helpful. 3. I loved the fact that the campus was very close to my house so I wasn't going to spend a lot of time commuting.
