Student Testimonial

Tulika Sinha

"There is so much more you achieve when studying in IFIM Business School than just a degree. You gain knowledge, confidence, hands-on experience and for me, the best part was finally realizing what I want to achieve with my career. IFIM has given me the quality education along with helping me get the practical exposure in various fields. The PGDM Finance curriculum, which follows a Bespoke Management Program, has given me knowledge, confidence and also helped me overcome my fears that always held me back. It has brought a new dimension to my life and helped me grab the opportunity to be placed in Morgan Stanley, one of the most top-notch branded company. It would not have been possible without the help and support of the whole IFIM family. I would take this opportunity to thank IFIM in shaping my career and help me reach my full potential."

At IFIM Business School, we got a chance to interact with corporates and experts from different backgrounds, specializations, industries and nationalities, the experience of which has really helped me to stay focused about my career. I believe, it is essential for a Post Grad degree to push you beyond your comfort zone and elevate you to the new level and I am pleased to acknowledge that IFIM has helped me get there. I had a great experience over two years and currently offered a job in Deloitte through campus placements. I thank IFIM Business School for preparing me to be industry-ready from day one.
