The best thing about IMT's Dubai campus, is that it is an amalgamation of the western school of thought as well as a reflection of the Indian ethos and business practices. So, it really prepares the students for the Dubai market, which is also a juxtaposition of East and West. The exposure to this market is one of the most prized opportunities that IMT Dubai offered me. In more tangible terms, I believe IMT Dubai's Internship Program, which mandates students to complete at least one internship for two months, is highly beneficial. IMT Dubai's support and initiative in exposing students in companies in the UAE and India is really a great opportunity, which opens doors to the corporate culture for students.

My biggest takeaways from IMT Dubai are the confidence and self-belief I gained and learning how to effectively network, take risks and manage my own life.

I'd like to tell the current students to attend guest lectures. Trust me, they help! Don't worry about placements, they'll happen. Enjoy your life on campus. That's the best part. And most importantly, build your network.

Ayush Gupta

Ayush Gupta - Business Development Manager, Emirates Industrial Lab , Class of 2010

Being one of the top 20 B Schools in India, it was the best opportunity for me to be a part of IMT. Looking at the advantages of having a Global Exposure & the best of the faculty available at all times, I got a confidence of pursuing MBA from IMT- Dubai.

Since I was a Mechanical Engineer, I specialized in Project Management and Operations which gave me a platform to apply the concepts in varied business environments.

Also, being a part of the Placement Committee of IMT Dubai helped me in establishing excellent network while meeting executives of many companies across UAE. However before the end of the academic session, I was employed by Emirates Industrial Lab (Oilfield, Marine & Industrial Consultants).
