EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE
My overall experience is very good. It was life changing and important phase of my life. Management is pretty helpful and easily approachable. i made lot of friends and increased my network.I recommend all MBA aspirants to join this college.
CAT. I scored 94 percentile in CAT and attended the interview for IMT Ghaziabad.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Expensive side. The Fees for IMT Ghaziabad PGDM 2016-18 Batch (latest batch) is Rs. 15,00,000 (inclusive of Admission Fee, Academic Fee, Hospitality charges, etc.). The total fee will be paid in 6 installments. One main advantage is that SBI Ghaziabad will give education loan to the candidates with interest rate as per market conditions. In 2013 i took 8 lac loan without submitting any mortgage to the bank. i was charged the interest at 11% per annum. You will not be charged any interest during the two years of study.
Almost 95% of the batch was placed. Companies that visited were Credit Suisse - 10 lpa, JP Morgan - 8 lpa, KPMG - 8 lpa, Deloitte - 9 lpa, CTS - 14 lpa, Max life insurance - 12 lpa, De Shaw - 12 lpa, Accenture - 7.75 - 12 lpa, Motilal Oswal - 8 lpa, Latentview Analytics - 9 lpa, Facebook - 8 lpa, Google - 14 lpa, HSBC - 16+ lpa, Airtel - 18+ lpa.

IMT Ghaziabad is a fully residential campus with 10 student-housing blocks. A separate block houses MDP participants. Students can opt for rooms that offer single or double occupancy. Facilities include WiFi access, laundry service and cleaning facility. The IMT mess, next to student residences is open every day and provides four meals. Students dining here can enjoy a little entertainment thanks to the LCD TVs provided specifically for this purpose. Those who get hungry in between can avail of the eats and drinks available at reasonable rates in the canteen which is open seven days a week.
Faculty are senior personnel with deep industry experience. They guide us in our two years like close mentors. Few faculty even stay in campus and hence they can be approached any time in the day. Almost every faculty is a PhD holder. One of the Dubai campus faculty also worked as CAT convener and almost all the faculties are from IIMs. Even the faculty helped and worked along with students in publishing white papers and writing research papers or case studies which are later approved by Ivy league institutes like Harvard etc.
Exams were a bit hectic because there were total 7 trimesters and each trimester is approximately 3 months of duration. one mid and final review were conducted for every trimester. I felt that syllabus was too lengthy to cover in 3 months. So we worked very hard to follow up and complete the syllabus in time. late night studies and group assignments were common.Our library was open almost all the day so most of the people read in library rather then hostel room. Exam questions were moderate i.e not too hard or easy. Evaluation of answer sheets was also moderate except two or three professors who were penurious in allotting marks to students. However, i would rate the overall exam structure as tough.
