Following a Tradition of providing Excellence and Service
Christ University Trust is one of the most coveted names in the Indian higher education sector. Christ Institute of Management (CIM) attracts the largest number of inquires and applications for admission among all colleges in the country for management courses. CIM was established by Christ University Trust which has a well-known and trustworthy reputation in Indian Higher Education. Christ University Trust also manages Christ University, formerly known as Christ College and has an experience of more than 20 years in Management Education and 50 years in higher education. Dr. (Fr.) Jossy George, Director of Christ Institute of Management says; \"As the demand was high, we started a campus in Lavasa (Near Pune), which is an apt place for pursuing studies without the distractions of big metro city. The curriculum and pedagogy at CIM Lavasa is geared to nurture managers for the future with emphasis in holistic education and integral development. Personal mentoring, corporate interface, industry visits and live projects are part of the training ensuring industry ready professionals by the completion of the program. The teaching methodology includes simulation, role plays, and blended learning to enhance the analytical and problem solving skills of the students making them effective decision makers and leaders in a complex and globalized corporate world\".
Last year, Lavasa campus alone received many applications for the 120 seats. \"The senior management has been rigorous with respect to admissions hence, we do not admit students who do not have the required business acumen. We have rejected many applications since the inception,\" says Vineeth Gupta, Head-Academic, CIM Lavasa. To get an admission in Christ Institute of Management program, students have to undergo several evaluations where a panel of faculty members assesses every application to ensure that the candidates possess the qualities required to complete the rigorous programme. \"Today, heaps of students apply for management programs as it has lucrative career opportunities, but they do not have a real interest to learn the strategies of business. We conduct counseling sessions for all our applicants to identify their interests and thus control the inflow of students who gain admission to the institute, to learn what we are teaching here,\" says Gupta.
