This institution is given the 4th rank among all management institutions in north India. Many of my friends are studying in this institution. Presently the courses offered by the Institute of Management studies are PGDM & MCA. Selection of candidates for PGDM is through the score obtained in CAT, MAT or CMAT exam plus total score obtained in group discussion, written test and personal interview. Admission for MCA will be on the basis of UPSEE score. Only 15% of seats are available for students expecting to take admission through management quota. I got admission in this institute in PGDM (Finance) and as per my knowledge fee structure is INR 7.5 Lakhs for entire 2 years.
