The Student Council is the student governing body and serves as a link between the students and the Executive Council. The Student Council is headed by the President and the General Secretaries and they are supported by the various Vice – Presidents and Secretaries in the areas of Cultural, Sports, Alumni, Placements, CSR, Media Relations and Hostel.
The members of the Student Council are elected by the students and it operates with the concept of “By the students, Of the students and For the students”. The student Council comprises of students from all the three Institutions under the IFIM Brand, IFIM Business School, IFIM College and IFIM Law School.
There are currently 20 members of the Student Council and student membership to the Council is purely based on an election held every year for the incoming batch. To be eligible to be a part of the Council, a student must have spent at least one term at IFIM and possess a good disciplinary record. Additionally, he/she must have minimum of 6.5 CGPA for PG and 60% (pass in all subjects for UG). The Executive Council appoints a faculty coordinator for student affairs to the Student Council who works as a facilitator and guide.

"Becoming the Sports VP of an institute like IFIM was a complete blessing, yet a task I had to perform to the best of my ability. Talking about leadership, I have led my state team (Goa) at four nationals and also been the top scorer at various tournaments in Rugby 7's. I have also been a part of the IFIM football team which has won several inter-collegiate tournaments. IFIM's goal of nurturing us into T-shaped professionals is playing a very vital role in my career. Cheers!"
“Exactly 2 months after joining this prestigious Institute, I had to represent my state, Goa in the field of - Rugby 7's at the All India Rugby 7's nationals held at Bihar. As this institute believes in the support liberal arts has in helping to holistically develop an individual, I did not have to face any difficulties to get leave or miss my classes.
Goa achieved an all India rank of 5th and I received my call to represent my country-India for the Asian Games held at Philippines. I also am the President of the Student Council and have won several competitions at colleges like IIIT B, SIBM, MCC, etc. in the field of sport- football. Soham Shirodkar and I were honoured by Olympian Abhinav Bindra, for our achievements in sports and also by the Sports Minister of Goa”.
