|Q.1) Is IIMT approved by AICTE &/or UGC ?|
Ans : 1. Sir we have not taken the AICTE approval. There are more than a few reasons behind that. First of all they have certain norms like to run an institute you should have 5 acres of land in an urban area or 25 acres in a non urban area.
2. Also your classroom size should be this much and you should have a bank balance of in crores. Since we are running distance learning programs we do not need this much of land.
3. Secondly if we take there approval we will lose out on a lot of our sturdy points for example we will not be able to provide you with fast track education as the duration would be decided by AICTE.4. As we also provide 100% (JPA) Job Placemen Assistance, we might not be in the position to provide such facility to our students under AICTE.
5. As far as UGC is concerned, they give grants to a university and we are not a university.
My comments: This is completely misleading. In fact UGC does not have rights to grant any institute a status of university except deemed university. All universities must be established by passing an Act either in a parliament or a state legislature. Further, in a remote part, 25 acre land cost hardly 25 lakhs which is not a high. This institute, on its MoU signed with Gujarat government talks about investing 300 crore. So is the amount high?
|Q.2) How can you give MBA in 6 Months ?|
|Ans : The program is for 2 years, however we give this facility to our students wherein hey can finish the program any time between 6 month and 2-years. Generally if you pursue MBA from some other institute and even if you finish your studies in 13 months you can give your exam only after 24 months. In our case if you finish your studies in 13 months, you can give your exams and get your certifications done; as a result you are saving your own 11 months. The duration of the program utterly depends on the student caliber.|
My comments: Again a big fake. Can you complete MBA in just 5 subject and 6 months, never. Every degree must follow UGC guideline on minimum duration i.e. a degree should be of minimum 3 years and a masters minimum 2 years.
|Q. 3) Will the companies accept 6 months MBA ?|
Ans : Sir, first of your entire certificate will not indicate that you have finished your program in 6 months or 8 month. It just indicates the &date you have finished your program. Secondly today in the corporate world, more of the working professions are interested in fast track duration courses to save their time, money and efforts; and the companies too. Companies even promote such fast track courses for their employee as part time courses.
My comments: No. most of the organisation not even accept your application for a job. Ask them to provide name of 5 such well known employer. I know they will never
|Q. 7 But will this certificate be valid in govt jobs as I think they need the candidate to be a MBA from a AICTE approved university only ?|
|Ans : 1. Sir I can assure you that this certificate will be valid anywhere as far as jobs are concerned.|
2. If you allow me to send you a copy of our prospectus, you will find a list of people who have finished their program from our institute and many of them are in govt sector.
My comments: For government jobs, they even do not accept a degree of a known reputed state university if the degree is awarded by violating UGC and AICTE norms then how will they accept it? Please read my following article how a Punjab Babu lost his job due to submission of KSOU degree which did not have AICTE and DEB approval
|Q. 12) How many specializations do you offer ?|
|Ans : We offer more than 100 specializations; hence we have a course for almost everyone.|
My comments: Even top institute like IITs, IIMs do not have capacity to offer so many specialisation. Government must award them Bharat Ratna/
|I hope, I have been able to clarify on this subject and open your eyes. Please ask if you have any query. Please do not become victim of such fraud institutes. This institute can send me a legal notice and I am open to debate anywhere - open forum, court of law with this institute. This is another Jaro and institutes like them. Please beware.|
