It has been close to 4 months since I joined ISME(International School of Management Excellence), Bangalore. The life since has been like a milling machine. The initial 7 days at ISME were for orientation and gave me a brief idea about the overall curriculum. From the day onwards I have been following an utterly hectic lifestyle. ISME offers a 16 months PGPM program in line of Europian B- Schools where you are taught by excellent professors from some of the best B-Schools in India. 12 months are dedicated to class room teaching where as students get 4 months internship in various firms. ISME provides Six Sigma black belt certification which is rarely followed by any other institutes in India. There are three specialization courses provided by ISME. They are Marketing, Finance and IT. HR is about come up next year.

ISME has taken special care to admit students from different parts of the country. The motive behind this is to make students aware of different cultures and practices.

Academics and Activities

One thing the college has ensured is that the students get the best in terms of faculties and it can compete with any of the best B-Schools in India in that respect. We have got a decent library with some of the popular business magazines and journals and a well furnished computer lab. The campus as usual is wi-fi enabled. So you need not worry about internet.

Your communication skills are bound to excel as you would be presenting at least 5-6 presentations per term(2 months). Functional english classes are taken once in a week to put extra effort on those students whose communication skills are not up to standard.

We have till now experienced guest lectures by excellent professionals from some of the  highly reputed companies like Makino India, a 60 year old Japanese company based in Whitefield, Bangalore and Adidas. We have also been addressed by Major Vijay Batra, retired army personnel who also fought in the Kargil war of 1998.

ISME, in order to provide a platform for  co-curricular and extra curricular activities has created academic and literary clubs which arrange team games, quizes, cultural programs etc. in the college. The annual cultural day is celebrated on Diwali every year.

If you are ready to accept challenges and have the passion to excel, ISME is the right place for you. This fast track course will teach you much more than what you expect from most of the B-Schools in India.
