Throughout my 2 years at IFIM B - School, I had immense opportunities to deepen my knowledge and build confidence through various programs and events. IFIM helped in my holistic development as an individual and helped in learnings that one cannot learn from books. These attributes helped in my successful final placement at Government EXIM (Export-Import) Bank with a good package. A big thanks to all my friends for this wonderful journey at IFIM. My sincere gratitude and appreciation to all faculties and CCE Department for their guidance and support.

I would like to thank the entire IFIM for making me capable so that I could be able to reach this level. Getting a job in PWC is like a dreams come true and the whole credit goes to IFIM. I can clearly differentiate myself before joining IFIM and where I am today, and the positive attitude came only because of IFIM. The whole PGDM faculty, as well as alumni, was so supportive and helpful that guided me in each and every step in building my career. Also, the Mentorship program was one of the remarkable contribution provided by IFIM that helped a lot in understanding the weakness and preparing ourselves towards the success in corporate life.

IFIM is one such college which provides equal importance to cultural activities as it does to academics. I am grateful for all the opportunities received to showcase my talent as a musician and providing the opportunity to lead the music club. In the duration of my course, I was successfully able to clear my CFA level 1 all thanks to the support and guidance from the faculty. This institution has taught me to lead, to be responsible, to organize, to manage and most importantly to be independent.

It has been a great two years on the campus. I've learned a lot in these two years be it academically or personally. The support given by the faculty in the process has helped me immensely. The college has nourished me and made me a good citizen and a future leader. It has provided me a platform to prove who I'm. I thank all the mentors who have brought me to this stage today.
