The first batch of students at Indian Institute of Management (IIM) here gave a positive response on the first day of the new session, which started on Monday.

“It was my first day at IIM and the institution delivered more than what I expected. We were taught by experienced faculty from IIM, Kozhikode. There were four lectures— two each of statistics and accounts—from 9am till 3pm,” smiles Sonali Pawar, who is resident of Ghaziabad and has taken admission in the institution.

She said, “It was a good day altogether and my hopes from the institution has increased. Unlike other institutions, classes here are more interactive and the professors, from the very first day, are putting in their efforts to bring us at par with other IIMs, where classes started on July 1. We have been informed that we won’t be having free weekends initially so that we are able to cover the syllabus.

Another student, Anshuman Totia from Meerut, said, “The classes here are interesting and interactive so studying on weekends will not be a burden. About the stay, the girls are putting up at Government Polytechnic college building, while the boys at staying 3 km away from the institute. The boys have been given proper transport service by the institute, so it is not much hassle.”
