Faculty Coordinator’s Message


Dr. Giribala Dewasthale
Placement Head
IMDR, Pune

It gives me immense pleasure to invite you for the campus recruitment process for the batch of 2017-19! I also take this opportunity to thank you for the invaluable support that you have extended to us over past so many years. I want to share with you the value proposition of IMDR for industry partners : autonomy to frame curriculum for changing industry needs, learning climate at the institute that facilitates student development, dual specialization for meeting requirements of entry level positions and diverse graduation backgrounds of our students resulting in better recruitment options for you. We are an autonomous institute approved by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi and Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), Maharashtra. Autonomy has enabled us to stay in touch with changing industry needs regarding content and delivery of subjects in the curriculum. Industry thought leaders are part of our academic council. Apart from the specialization areas of Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Operations and International Trade, our curriculum comprises courses in Communication theory and process, Management of quality, E-business, Project Management and humanities subjects such as Psychology, Sociology and Economics. We believe this helps students gain a macro as well as a micro perspective towards their functional domain as well as the organization.

IMDR offers its students the opportunity for an international student exchange program through its partnership with ESSCA (Ecole Superior Des Sciences Commercials D’Angers) a leading B-school from France. This enhances international exposure for our students. In addition, the
institute has collaboration with SAP under their university alliance program to offer training in the basics of ERP.

For the last 40 years IMDR has developed a holistic approach to management education. It sees itself as a community of past and present students, faculty and staff members. Our alumni have done us proud and are now in strategic roles in organizations in India and abroad. We believe this is due, in no small measure, to the climate of openness and mutual respect that the institute nurtures. Students are encouraged to freely express their thoughts and ideas. At the same time they learn to appreciate and respect diverse viewpoints. Over the years our students have achieved the reputation of being ‘down to earth performers’.

IMDR offers dual specialization to students. Students have a major and minor specialization area. Of the 10 elective subjects 6 are in their major specialization and 4 are in the minor specialization. This gives them the ability to perform tasks in more than one domain in their
entry level jobs and enhances their value.

Students have diverse graduation backgrounds and have done their summer internships in diverse industry sectors. We believe that this makes them equipped for contributing positively at entry level positions in different functional and industry domains.

We welcome you to IMDR for the campus recruitment process for the academic year 2018-19!
We believe that with our curriculum, learning climate, dual specialization, and students from diverse backgrounds we will be able to fulfill your requirements and create opportunities for our students.
