I cannot count on my fingers anymore, of how many years it has been since I completed my course at Chetana’s, but whenever I meet my batch mates or even come down to the campus, I feel like not one day has gone by since. This place has given a head start to my career, which has enhanced my capabilities through high quality learning and placements. The curricular and co-curricular activities have thoroughly helped to gain valuable insights which have been with us since we started working.

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.

Current Profile : Quality Executive at CitiusTech Healthcare Technology Private Ltd.
The 2 years PGDM course at CIMR has been a journey full of experimental learning for me.
The combination of Offline and online education gave us the best of both worlds. The time that had to be sacrificed in travelling during offline classes was converted into in-depth assignment discussions and case study reviews on most recent topics by faculty.
The online education also enabled me to deep dive further into research papers and align my theory knowledge with corporate profiles. Our professional and experienced faculty has been very supportive and showed us the true meaning of being 'Proactive', a quality essential for gaining 'Visibility at workplace'.
The thrill of offline paper presentations tremendously helped me to overcome stage fear. Also, the timely quiz contests, library access, knowledge centre and committee activities encouraged me to take ownership of the entire team as well as tasks at hand. Chetana's has definitely shaped my personality, encouraged me to make the best out of every situation and timely introspect to build a better version of myself.

“I was drawn to the programme of Systems Management at CIMR, as I was looking for something that would increase my business acumen as well as develop my analytical skills, required to stand out in this competitive world. PGDM Systems included challenging courses that applied business decisions to case studies and coursework in areas of emerging technological trends. With vast experience, intellect and knowledge of the industry, the professors were able to provide a practical perspective to the subject. And, having great opportunities for Summer as well as Off-Summer internships allowed me to pull from the curriculum that was studied. The end result of this curriculum was truly prolific, which helped me grab a great brand for executive placements.”

Students of this Institute have been working as Marketing interns with AIQuest Solutions for 2 months. They are hardworking and disciplined interns, and have been a very effective team.
Due to Covid-19 situation, they could not step out into the field for surveys, but their dedication to find the details working online have been equally effective.
They have helped in floating surveys and conducting interviews with few sectors which would help them understand the impact of Covid-19 on different sectors.
The article for the analysis is also been worked upon and their efforts have been very valuable.
We wish them all the best for their future endeavours and express our gratitude towards this Institute in the view of long lasting relationship.

Thanks a lot for giving me this opportunity to help your students. It was a very nice experience in interacting with them. I am sure your institute is helping them in all the ways, defining their future and shaping their capabilities.
The students are very good and technically sound. They were very open to instruction and used to grasp things very quickly and implement the same within the organization. They were able to complete their task well within the given time and used to share a well-formatted report every week. It was nice working with them and I wish them all the good luck for their future endeavours.
Would like to share that, during the internship period, the students of Chetana’s, closely worked with the Talent Acquisition team and made valuable contribution to our ongoing project. Their contributions and ideas have been extremely useful to us.
We wish them all the best in their future endeavours.

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."

Mr. Harish Rijhwani
Senior Delivery Manager
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!!
