A pleasure to attend the PGDM programme @Chetana's. Well thought out, designed & planned program. Highly experienced professors and guest faculty. Many practical examples, case studies, quiz and practical hands-on activities. All staff are very professional. This programme has given me new directions to think on how to execute project management activities in Banking more effectively and efficiently. Normally, as project managers, we plan and execute projects but often we face problems related to budget overshoot, delayed timeline, scope creep. But, after participating in the PGDM prep programme @Chetana's, I learnt many methods/tools/techniques by which we can have control over budget, time & scope.

CIMR has been a great contributor to the development of my personality. By participating in the inter-college and intra-college events conducted by the Institute, I have established leadership, time management, and team skills and have also been able to advance these skills to the whole new augment level.
The professors here make the college what it is today. With an attitude of being ever ready to help, and not only delivering classroom teachings?? (use lectures) but also providing the students with real-time case studies and hands-on industry experience with field project works, they are the pillars of the learning gained from this esteemed institute and this is a treasure for life.
To any new student coming to the Institute, I would say this: Throw yourself at every opportunity that comes your way. If it gets too much, you can always scale back, but those opportunities can make all the difference between getting what you want and having to settle for second best.

The 2 years spent at Chetana’s Institute of Management and Research has been a wonderful journey. While perusing my PGDM course at the Institute, I was surrounded by excellent faculty team who always supported me and gave me the right guidance.
The PGDM course was well designed and it wasn’t just about giving presentations. There were live case studies which were discussed and we were given the opportunity to visit the industry once every week in order to get acquainted with the corporate world. Internships with companies like L&T and Kores India helped me understand how the Human Resource department works.
Chetana’s institute has added a shine to my personality and I’ll forever be grateful to my institute and faculty for helping me scale my career.

A quiet place in the centre of town in Bandra (E), where diamonds are being moulded that will soon unleash themselves in the corporate world or become an entrepreneur. That is in one sentence I would call Chetana’s Institute of Management & Research. We have found many such gems in this institute who over the period of time have become a senior and an important part of the organization. The humility though exhibited by the CEO & I/C Director, the professors and the staff believes the stiff iron determination to provide a truly world class education to the students of this institute. Well Done Chetana’s.

"I have had a long association with Chetana’s Institute of Management & Research as a visiting faculty and adjunct faculty since 2004, and I have witnessed its transformation over these long years. What struck me was the enthusiasm of its management and staff to listen to new ideas and implement them. Students are equally encouraged to participate in these initiatives. In fact, some of these initiatives are entirely driven by students themselves. I have seen various programs aimed at student’s overall growth in addition to academic requirements enriching the students. The rigour shown in implementing the ideas make a big difference in transforming the students.
I have had the pleasure and privilege of participating in many of them and looking back, I realise how that this willingness to try out new things and explore new horizons is the reason that it makes it extremely interesting in working with the institute. I look forward to a long association with them."

They are working on various MDP programs as part of Industry-Academia connect that will bridge the gaps in current expectations from the corporates.
Chetana’s invites various illustrious alumni to share their rich experiences and this guidance from the Industry stalwarts helps the students to become better managers and leaders of tomorrow.
I am really happy that a student's career is in the forefront in all the initiatives at CIMR.

"Honor the Legacy and Adapt to Change" could be the mantra behind the success of “Chetana’s Institute of Management and Research (CIMR)". I am associated with the institution for the last 15 years as part of their Industry – Academia program. Every time I visit the Campus, I can see the enthusiasm of the management to drive initiatives. I sense in the students a hunger for knowledge and the eagerness to learn practical skills. The students passing out of this Institute are competent and also possess the right attitude with knowledge and skills. Wishing all the best to Students and CIMR for future endeavours!!!

I have been privileged to be part of Chetna's Analytics Management Development Program for the past 9 months. It has been an Amazing journey with this team of experts from various walks of life, who have been bought together with a common goal to develop an “Analytics Center of Excellence”. I was really inspired with the futuristic focus of the team specifically by including Healthcare as a separate stream in the Program. Organizations over the years have been taking baby steps in the space of Health Analytics. The current World scenario has put a tremendous strain on Healthcare and as we slowly come out of it the focus will shift towards being prepared. Chetna’s Institute of Management & Research by virtue of its Analytics Center of Excellence, has taken the right step in helping organizations prepare for the Future. As Thomas Higginson said “Fields are won by those who believe in the winning”, as a Team “We Believe, we can make a difference”. Proud to be part of this team!!
