GOOD FOR MARKETING, AVERAGE FOR FINANCE, HR AND OPERATIONS
Overall itﾒs a good b-school. For marketing its simply good but for other specialisation a lot needs to be done.Batch size remains a concern, if a downsizing is done now, the college can reach greater heights.
I took CAT for seeking admission in the college. Other examinations applicable are GMAT. I scored 96.42 percentile in 2011 for admission in the college.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
The b-school charges currently around Rs 14-16 lakhs for 2 years all inclusive (stay, food etc.). The Return on investment is average.The B-school has tie-up with banks for education loans as well.

Salary for marketing companies is high to the tune of Rs 23 Lakh per annum (Domestic), and Rs 33 Lakh per annum (International).For Finance the highest package is around Rs 15 lakh per annum. Profile includes sales, brand manager, research, equity research, investment banking, etc.The college doesnﾒt see 100 per cent placement during final placements. Generally students who donﾒt perform well on the academic front are the ones who remain unplaced.
The b-school has 6-7 hostels on the campus. Separate hostels for girls and boys are there. Rooms are both twin sharing and single. Allotment of single room happens only in second year and it depends on your academic performance as the number of rooms are limited.Mess provides food four times a day with pre-defined menu for every week.

It connects over 5000+ network of Alumni since inception of the college in 1980s.Chungi nights, 25 year re-union, etc. are conducted regularly so as to make the people feel connected to alma mater.
Faculty of marketing is very good and experienced. They have varied research interest. However, for other specialisation such as Operations, HR, and Finance, more experienced faculty is required.All the faculty holds PhD degree in the college and conduct research work throughout the year. Also faculty are given separate cabins on the campus and they are easily reachable.
Campus life in IMT G is amazing. As they say Mumbai never sleeps similarly IMT never sleeps. Many call it as IMT resort. Regular parties, events, sports are organised which keeps you busy and engaged round the clock.Amphitheatre on the campus is a place to vouch for. You can find several section parties organised there with the permission of student council and management.
Each subject has a mid-term and an end term examination along with 3-4 quizzes (which can be both scheduled quiz or surprise quiz). The mid-term and end-term can be both open book and closed book depending on the choice of the professor. Quiz constitutes for 20% of the overall score and is very important due to relative grading system followed.
