Our Philosophy

As we move along with evolution of technology and the advancement and growing needs of the society, one needs to be coherent with the ongoing metamorphosis. The existing structure of mainstream education in India, is often considered obsolete and disconnected with a rapidly-evolving world.

A rigid structure in place doesn’t reach out to other important areas and disciplines of education.

This leads to a huge gap between the deliverables necessary for, and expected by the society, and also the quality of education imparted.

In order to keep in pace with a continuously changing ecosystem, it is necessary to groom the students to a level where they can easily seep-in change and counter challenges.

A customized curriculum coupled with unique methods of teaching would help students to stay motivated, confident and independent.

Student Testimonials


Subham Rana
BBA
2015- 2018

"The vision of IFIM College states "Transform Yourself", and that is exactly what this institution offers. The BBA course has provided a lot of exposure to the students in ways of guest lectures, industrial visits, seminars, etc. The faculty members are extremely supportive and they constantly put efforts to bring out the best in the students. The campus environment, strong academic structure, intricate support system, and also my hard work helped me in securing the first position in Bangalore University for Quantitative Methods for Business in 1st semester and top 25 in other subjects in the same and the following semesters. The past two years have been both motivating and inspirational, right here at IFIM College. I'll always be proud to be an IFIMite."


MS. MANNAT GILL

"The best aspect of IFIM College is not only the faculty, but the students and classmates from varied backgrounds. It is exciting to be around people with so many diverse thoughts and perspectives. Our classroom sessions involve a lot of discussions and cases, where we try to do assignments through grouped deliberations. Good insights and resolutions flow easily when you are surrounded by students from so many different places, so we get a well-rounded perspective to everything. This helps during professional life while working in MNC's and international organizations."

"A few words about IFIM College : It really is one of the best Institutions in the country. I couldn't have asked for a better environment. The faculty is helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Besides Bangalore University syllabus, the faculty takes time to go the extra mile and encourage us to learn more about modules and courses. The NSS activities, College fests and projects personally helped me develop my communication skills, team management and an innovative outlook. The IFIM College experience is definitely one that is unforgettable."

"Studying in IFIM College has helped me and all my peers, to develop into world-class leaders with unmatched professional competence. Since it is centrally located in the heart of India’s Silicon Valley – Electronics City, we get to experience industrial visits and the corporate feel, right from the start. Besides entrepreneurship and leadership, we have even learnt crisis management and ethics, due to the case studies, assignments and industry interactions. It is more reassuring to see all our IFIM alumni well-placed across the globe, serving as role models for us. Being the General Secretary, leading the student community has helped me learn decision-making and management as well."

Life @ IFIM College

The life at IFIM College Campus is a fine balance of fun and study. The vibrant Campus life affects the after class and quality of living experience significantly. Our advice to all 'incoming students' is: learn the fine art of getting settled, managing the academic curriculum and then plunge into extra/co-curricular activities. The best guide is your Faculty Mentor assigned by the Principal Mentor, who has rich experience in this regard.

The environment and culture of IFIM College is geared to handle students with:

  • Dramatically different beliefs and philosophies.
  • Widely divergent expectations.
  • A high focus on academics, conservative and middle of the road approach to cultural activities.
  • Different personalities and orientations.
  • An adventuresome spirit.

Under the overall guidance, supervision & mentorship of the Principal Mentor and Chairperson (Student Affairs), the extra/co- curricular activities are designed, structured, aligned to and integrated with the academic framework. The level of independence associated with the conduct of the extra/co-curricular activities is quite amazing. But at times, the whole excitement of being independent can be dampened by an overwhelming sense of ownership & responsibility (let us gently remind ourselves that students are under training).

Each of the programmes & activities have a specific timeline, learning objectives, desirable and measurable outcomes, ensures high student participation and requires oodles of creative energy round the year. The events are successful, students are happy and the learning’s quite diverse: expect the unexpected, learn about the stages of cultural adjustment, managerial skills, language proficiency and the like.

Students at IFIM College enjoy themselves, are helped to adjust socially and this collectively impacts their overall academic performance positively. There are plenty of stress busters and culture shock relievers on Campus to get away from the mundane academic routine. Hobby societies, volunteer services, gymnasium, intra/extra mural sports are some of them.

About Bangalore University

Bangalore University located in the Garden City of Bangalore aptly hailed as the “IT capital of India” was established in July 1964 as an offshoot of the University of Mysore, primarily to include institutions of Higher learning located in the metropolitan city of Bangalore and the districts of rural Bangalore, Kolar. Initially, the two premier colleges of the city, the Central College(CC) and the University Vivesvaraya College of Engineering formed the nucleus of the Bangalore University. Soon after the establishment of the Bangalore University, as a first step in the reorganization of courses of instructions, the University introduced Honours courses in the year 1965-66.

Bangalore University has grown both in size and strength to include a large number of affiliated colleges, P.G. Centres of research and a rich diversity of programme options. In consonance with this expansion, in 1973 the University moved into a new campus ‘Jnana Bharathi’ (JB) located on a sprawling 1,100 acres of land and shifted many of its post-graduate departments to this newly established campus. At present, the JB Campus houses the administrative office a large number of post-graduate departments, Directorates, Centres of higher learning, Gandhi Bhavan, Ambedkar Bhavan, NSS Bhavan, Outdoor Stadium and other support services.
