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.



Hostel Life @ IFIM

The hostel is located on a lush two acre campus and in close proximity to the main campus. Transportation to and from the hostel is available at the campus.

The B.Com ACCA @ IFIM College will have a unique advantage of pursuing the Professional Qualification (ACCA) alongside their regular graduation. In this programme all the papers of ACCA are embedded in the B.Com course. So there is no need for a student to spend additional time and money in getting trained for ACCA papers externally. Besides the students will also get a few exemptions for ACCA exams. This distinctive model helps a student to accelerate his/her progression towards getting the ACCA qualification. As soon as the student qualifies the ACCA, he/she becomes a member of an elite group of world’s leading accounting professionals. It provides quality training so that the students can plan to achieve ACCA before they graduate from college.
Their unique blend of technical competence, professionalism and ethics gives them the ability to think strategically and hit the ground running. 
  There are multiple ACCA career opportunities available worldwide. Being a Global Professional Body, ACCA has managed to garner a pretty good recognition from the Indian employers as well.  In the recent past, ACCA India job opportunities have increased exponentially. With the growth of more and more MNCs and Big 4 companies, there has been a steep rise in jobs for ACCA professionals.
