Testimonials

"The most outstanding course I have ever taken that is wrapped with a real life experience. I enjoyed the information, and also the structure of course. This course included case studies, exercises and unassisted assignments which reveal the real learning. This course is actually which I would call as advanced as per market requirements. A Great Learning experience @ IIM Calcutta with NIIT Imperia"
- Ankit Sidana, Project Lead, Agilent Technologies

"Before joining the program I was not too sure on how effective will be the learning platform (synchronous learning platform). But after joining, I found it to be very good. The professors were very responsive to the queries raised during the classes."
- Saurabh Mittal (Principal Engineer, Pitney Bowes)

"I did not have any formal education in management. I had two motives for joining this course. First, to acquire managerial skills and second, to get the name of IIM Calcutta in my profile. I received more than my expectations. I liked that it gave me exactly what I needed. If I had joined any other general management course, it would have not given me knowledge specific to management of software development. I would like to recommend this program to my colleagues because it changes the perspective of our thinking towards management of software development."
- Ashutosh Raghuwanshi (Team Lead, ceTe Software Pvt. Ltd.)
