IIRM is not just an institute. It's an ensemble - an ensemble of intellect, value and repute. When I decided to chart my career in Risk Management I was looking for an industry relevant education from a reputed and value loaded institution. IIRM stood above the rest. I joined IIRM and found my understanding of Risk Management engendered swiftly and enhanced phenomenally. The institute enriched my understanding of the subject rather than load me with mere information. That makes it unique in the field. It laid the solid foundation upon which stands the edifice of my professional performance in Risk Management. In a rhetoric ridden education sector Promises for the most part are mere words.

IIRM made me realize my dreams and equipped me with confidence and advanced professional skills to turn them into reality. It is true that IIRM facilitates a leading edge to its students over the others.With its extremely experienced faculty and state of art, IIRM provides a perfect foundation to build a career in risk management field. It broadens our views towards a new career prospect.

My experience of studying at IIRM can be summarized as intellectually stimulating and academically rigorous... an excellent coverage of technical insurance courses that equipped me with knowledge and confidence that were essential for the pursuit of my career in Insurance. I enjoyed the opportunity to engage with the world-class scholars at my Institute - a challenging and beneficial experience that brought my own idea and experiences of working in the Tanzanian Insurance Market on the frontier of these established experts. I would recommend IIRM to all International students out there who wish to have a rewarding and satisfying career in Insurance in their respective countries around the world.

IIRM is one the few specialized institutes in India with focused & structured programs in the areas of Life, General & Risk Management... My one-year association with IIRM and interaction with its learned faculty has provided me with the expected foundation in risk management that I aimed for. The assignments, pedagogy followed were well designed and professional in approach.

Vinayak Madhavpai
I am a software Engineer with about 12 years of IT experience by now. But after completion of my IPGD in General Insurance through IIRM in December 2010, my value myself and within the organization changed a lot. Today, I am a senior Business Analyst located at Onshore... I am an All-Rounder now. The courses are very nicely designed for a professional and the contact class and assignment papers are very helpful.
