At IFIM Business School we believe in providing holistic and contemporary management education to our students with global perspective. To facilitate this we have designed Inbound and Outbound Exchange Programmes. These programmes widen students’ perspectives and help them understand the dynamics of management in other countries.

“Hello, I am Dilpreet Kaur, an exchange student from France. I was in ESC Rennes School of Business for one year. The experience in France was amazing, the city Rennes was calm and quiet with full of art and design where students can learn new things and explore different cultures. Even though initially I had difficulty in adjusting to the new environment, I realised that it’s only when we get out of our comfort zones, we grow. The standard of learning in ESC Rennes was transformed to e-learning which made access to study materials very easy for all students. Rennes is a vibrant, bright city buzzing with students. I got to be a part of many events organised by students. There are many cultural and historic sites to visit where we had a lot of fun. International exposure is an opportunity for students that must not be missed at any cost. Please do not let go of this golden opportunity, travel and learn to become a global citiz en.”

“Education, experience, and excellence, are the three milestones to success. I am a person who strives hard to achieve the goals set in my life to reach the ultimate excellence in my profession and emerge as a successful person. As it is believed that education is the foundation for a developed life, having a qualitative educational experience in IFIM Business School and Rennes School of Business has been a wonderful experience and a boost in my career.
Our batch has been fortunate enough to be the first one to pursue the International Business dual degree program at IFIM in partner with Rennes School of Business. My tenure, so far as a student of RSB in France ferried me through a series of transformational experiences. I got the opportunity to learn and understand different cultures through my interactions with peers from all over the world and diversify myself as a global citizen.
Taking my career to the next level, having an international level of exposure and experience will enhance my profile. The most attractive feature I found in the International Business (Dual Degree) Programme is its functioning structure which would make its student a complete package ready to face the challenges in the field of management and business development internationally. Living in a developed country like France improved my life skills and help me turn into a better human being with a higher standard of living and greater morals in life.
I would like to recommend to everybody to study one term abroad. You will emerge into a new person altogether! Thanks IFIM B School for giving me this brilliant opportunity to widen my horizons.”
“The experiences I’ve had in IFIM have been very memorable, any aspiring student would dream of. The overall journey has been quite astonishing, paving a pathway to accomplish unforeseen opportunities that lay ahead. The structured course curriculum embraces a distinct uniqueness, beholding the essence of providing students to pursue their degree, based on their sole interest and career aspirations. Moreover, the prominent elegance of the institution is embedded with the presence of highly skilled and learned faculty and facilitators, embarking a significant learning environment. With the application of sophisticated technologies and research facilities, the education standard has profoundly been accredited by foreign universities. Similarly, the institution has several tie ups with foreign universities that clearly acknowledges the credibility of the education provider, and rewards deserving students for a study abroad program. It is very prevalent to anticipate that any global experiences would undoubtedly provide additional ingredients, essential to shape a better future.
Likewise, when portraying one of my personal experiences, I’ve had a similar opportunity to undergo the provided exchange program, with one of the partner universities- University of Wollongong. If I have to describe, the journey has been one of the best experiences that I’ve had, and has become a life time memory for me. The course instructors and head of programs treat students with utmost care and dedication. There is no surprise that when being a student, one is most likely to be bothered by several obstacles and worrisome events. However, the clear guidance and compassionate grounds provided by the benevolent facilitators have made this pathway a unique and recommendable one. The features of academic consideration and private one on one interaction are some of the key aspects of the exchange program. I feel very blessed that I’ve had the opportunity to be a part of the offered program and unravel key life lesson techniques that would certainly aid me to become the leader I have always aspired to be.
