We caught up with Madhur and asked him about his experience at IFIM and how the Executive Program at IFIM helped him enhance his professional journey. See the interview below.
Which course were you enrolled for at IFIM?
Executive MBA with specialisation in Finance and International Management
What were you doing before this course at IFIM?
Before doing the course, I was a Project Manager managing a team of about 25 technical resources at Asian CERC Information Technology Ltd. I was responsible for the development and implementation of products.
Why did you choose IFIM for higher education?
Having worked for 5 years, I felt a need of a formal learning of management as a subject. I was missing the theoretical aspects of the same and also wanted to interact with the experts in these areas.
Share your experience about the curriculum & the faculty.
I had closely studied the curriculum of other universities and institutions before finally opting for IFIM. This is the best available program with the world class infrastructure and excellent faculty. The faculty both internal and external are very supportive and even till date, after close to 15 years of passing out, they are in constant touch with me. That proves how well they are and how well you need them in your professional journey. The best part of the faculty is that they mentor you as per your choice of taking your professional journey.
How flexible was the program for you to maintain a balance between work and study?
The course was very flexible, it was designed in such a way that you do not skip your work and moreover the learnings of the same can be directly applied to the work as well. The course essentially helped me supplement my work.
Tell us about the skills that you acquired from the program.
The program made me understand what business is all about in totality , right from conceptualisation to execution.
How have the learnings from the course impacted your career?
Some learnings cannot be quantified. The place where I am presently, has been largely contributed by the curriculum, faculty and the discipline of the institution.
How did IFIM support you during the placement process? Can you share the details of the placement you got from the college.
I did not opt for any placement process since I was already working. However, the placement process is excellent and all the students in our time very placed in best of corporates.
Would you recommend the IFIM’s Executive Programme to someone? Why?
Definitely! This is the place where you can discover, explore and refine your true potential.
