      The most important factor to consider is whether the job which will come after the completion of degree suits your nature or not.No company in any sector will pay you handsome money for minimal work,so I took my decision on the above factor and the nature of the job suits me perfectly. Apart from this, IMU is a government university and a trusted brand.There are many fraud colleges running in the name of maritime colleges, beware of them.
