Deanâ€™s Messageâ€Ś. Dear Readers,
This is a great initiative from our Executive PGDM batch of 2012-13. The world over, executive MBA programs have become very successful at giving a new direction to mid-career executives. So it is with IMT's executive PGDM. It comprises a set of experienced executives from diverse verticals and functions. But they are all united by a desire to excel in the corporate world.
Here is wishing great academic success to each one of you, followed by an achievement of your career goals. Please spend your time here fruitfully, and add a feather in the cap of IMT with your achievements. An eventful year awaits you at IMT Ghaziabad.
With best wishes, Rajendra Nargundkar Senior Dean-Academics

We welcome you all on the first edition of IMT Executive Bulletin reflEXions. It’s with pleasure we share the Intellectual Property of the PGDM- Executive batch of IMT Ghaziabad gathered in the last one month. The journey goes as follows … One month has passed and all of us have adapted to the IMT family. Entering the class rooms after five to fourteen years of professional life, it has been really challenging to be in a student’s shoes again. We had fourteen exams in just one month, but then it’s been rightly said “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going”. It’s not just exams and case studies but also lots of fun with parties, birthday celebrations and extracurricular activities. In spite of a hectic schedule, we formed three committees (Cultural, Sports, ALCOM) with a few more in the pipeline.
