The Institute of Management Technology (IMT), one of India's leading business schools, will open its first overseas campus at the Dubai Academic City (DAC).
The institute, ranked eighth in the Outlook-CFore survey of business schools in India, will start its Dubai classes from September. It will initially offer three courses: MBA, Executive MBA and Executive MBA (Part time).
Media reports quoted BS Sahay, director of the Ghaziabad-headquartered institute, as saying that the doors for admission have been opened. Students will be selected through GMAT/CAT scores or through a test conducted by the institute and a group discussion, interview and academic records.
This is the institute's third campus after Ghaziabad and Nagpur. It will operate out of a rented building in DAC and later move on to its own independent building.
"Our vision is to bring world class management education, training and consulting within easy reach of management professionals seeking global careers. The establishment of the Dubai campus is part of our mission to position IMT on the global business map and to become one of the top business schools in the world," Sahay was quoted as saying.
The 26-year-old institute is the first Indian business school to be granted a licence by the Ministry of Higher Education, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), according to the institute's website.
Other top Indian business schools that have campuses in Dubai are the Xavier Language Research Institute (XLRI), Jamshedpur, and Mumbai's SP Jain Institute of Management.
