Located in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, the highly sought after institute comes with a series of examination procedure so as to admit students for several courses. Serving the education industry for near about 56 years, the prestigious Business school is turning itself into a full-fledged University.
IFMR has been continuing with its operation from past four and a half decades in Chennai and now finally shifting its entire campus to Sri City which will soon turn into a Deemed University is definitely a matter of pride.Previously, it booked a massive plot comprising of 40 acres named Sri City in Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh which is 70 km away from Chennai, in 2014. After seeking permission from Andhra Pradesh government, Institute for Financial Management and Research have finally got the nod to build a Private University thus converting Sri City into a full-fledged educational hub which will consist all kinds of courses from all streams and not just Business Administration or Management courses.
According to Prof. Dr P K Biswas, Director at IFMR, Chennai, “We shall remain focused on our flagship full-time PGDM program – which over the last few years is shaping into truly all round B’ School with increasing number of students specialising in Marketing, HR, Information Systems and Operations. Last year we introduced two new specializations BFSI & Data Science (Business Analytics), and I am very happy that both have been very well received by Corporates as evidenced in our placements this year. Over the years, we are known to have a rigorous Ph.D. program and our recent alumni are joining IIMs and IITs as faculty members. With University status we shall gradually introduce courses like B.B.A, MA (Development Studies) and MA (Economics) from the academic year 2017-18. Admissions for the new courses will open shortly.”
As per the Press Release sent by the Institute for Financial Managment and Research, Chennai, states that one of the prime reason to shift the campus from one location to another was the number of students it could hold of. Every year thousands of students appear in MBA/PGDM/PhD courses and with time only the number has increased thus making it impossible to adjust so many aspirants in one tiny institute.
For example, last year in and around 8 lakhs candidates appeared for PG courses with their CAT/CMAT/GMAT/XAT scores thus trying to apply and get admission in such prestigious B-School. Apart from having world-class faculty, it possesses a free wi-fi campus, along with sports facility and every niche facility including hostels. The new campus in Sri City will possess more of such facilities including the most attractive pay package and placement facility any student can ask for.
Therefore, IFMR Chennai in Sri City is finally turning into a full-fledged University with global courses hence providing the maximum facility to the students who wishes to seek admission.
