    My course was a whole two-year-long degree which took me into my deepest interests for the subject. Ever since I graduated, my engrossing interest in the management area seemed like the perfect choice to go for the course. IIMA did not just serve me with the best course and academic lifestyle, but also with a brilliant faculty. The teachers in my batch were great with their teaching methods and made the regular term exams so much easier for all of us to clear. The students were not just occupied with books but they were also given exciting and productive project works along with attending seminars. The faculty made life so much better at IIMA. Lastly, there was also a summer internship that every student had to go for at the end of the year.
