- (1888PressRelease) September 15, 2011 - Economic Times 2011 ranking establishes Institute of Management Technology, Ghaziabad on the 7th position for the year. The celebration of the victory multiplied with the introduction of the Hyderabad campus in the IMT group's list. IMT Hyderabad comes armed with the distinguished IMT reputation and with over 30 years of experience in teaching management students.
30 beautifully planned and landscaped acres make up IMT Hyderabad's fully residential, brand new campus.. IMT Hyderabad, the newest B-School of IMT Group of Institutes, was inaugurated on Saturday, July 2, 2011 by Mr. Kapil Sibal, Minister of HRD and Communication & IT, Government of India.
The inauguration of IMT Hyderabad campus was presided by Mr. Kiran Kumar Reddy, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh and Mr. Kamal Nath, Minister of Urban Development, Government of India and President, IMT Group of Institutes. Presently the IMT campuses are at Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh; Nagpur, Maharashtra in India and the international campus is located in Dubai.
Inaugurating the Hyderabad campus at Cherlaguda on the city outskirts Mr. Sibal stressed upon the need for utilizing management education system to provide solutions to problems faced by the common man.
"We have to look into the issues of management for poverty. No case-study has been done with reference to slums and the people living there. There are other problems like how to manage 55 lakh teachers in schools and recruitment of these teachers and how do you manage a school administration, among others," Mr. Sibal said. "There are huge problems and there is a need on studying the management of socio-economic issues in the society," he said.
"However, at the moment, our management schools are centered around getting placements for their students in big firms for fat salaries. This is really a tragedy," the minister said.
IMT Hyderabad is starting the first batch from the academic session of 2011-13 in the 30 acre campus with 120 seats. The programs offered by IMT Hyderabad are PGDM, PGDM Finance, PGDM Information Technology, PGDM Human Resources and PGDM International Business.
The Director of IMT Hyderabad is Dr. V Panduranga Rao. While sharing his vision on IMT Hyderabad, Dr. Rao told MBAUniverse.com, "IMT Hyderabad will endeavor to offer cutting edge and world class education. Our vision is to become a centre of excellence in management education in the years to come, offering quality programs with an international focus."
Talking about the unique features of IMT Hyderabad, Dr. Rao mentioned, "At the end of the first year of the regular PGDM program students will undergo a 14 weeks faculty-supervised Industry Internship Program. We are offering over 100 electives in nine different streams including Business Analytics."
Dr. Rao feels that IMT Hyderabad will give the advantage to the students in terms of location as well. He stated, "Hyderabad has emerged as a key IT/ ITES city in India and is poised to witness growth in other sectors such as pharmaceutical, biotech, financial services etc."
