From the desk of the Dean

Welcome to Quality Management Education Experience at IMT Centre for Distance Learning, Ghaziabad.
These are unnerving times for higher education in India. Academic institutions are struggling with cut
throat competition internally and externally. Employers are finding little value in the degrees and
certificates of students. Evolution and Revolution in technology is much faster now. The fact remains
India is facing huge unmet demand for higher education and insufficient seats at Institutes of higher
learning. Research findings suggest students pursuing higher education shall double by 2025 which will
further constrain our capacity to reach the objective - no one is left behind. Distance Learning alone
can help us overcome it.

There is a public backlash against rising tuition and student debt which cannot be overcome by
establishing conventional educational institutions but by distance learning systems. We at IMT believe in
the philosophy whom do we serve and how well we can reach out to those who cant afford expensive
education.

IMT CDL is the tier one non-traditional experience in management and business education having been
recognised, as a world class Indian institute. The time pressure and lifes demand make it harder for a
working professional to develop managerial skills through conventional institutions. As the work place
becomes increasingly challenging and competitive in the 21st century, the right management education
and qualification has become a crucial success factor for working professionals.

IMT Centre for Distance Learning (IMT CDL) is the most apt answer to meet the management education
requirements of working professionals. The state-of-the-art infrastructure at IMT CDL enables the
learners to experience world class management education with ease and flexibility and without the need
to remain away from work. The vast digital repository of high quality management lectures by our
distinguished faculty, proctored examinations, assignments, a large digital library and an advanced
learning platform ensure an enriching and effective learning process.

Also, free and optional subject mentoring available for all learners is a great facility for working executives
to successfully complete and acquire a premium management qualification from IMT CDL. It is also
heartening to note that IMT CDL has been ranked #1 in various recent surveys on distance education in
the country.

It is an opportunity to join several thousand alumni who reposed their confidence and rose to greater
heights on the ladder of their professional career. I invite you and assure you of achieving your learning
goals. Our Journey for over three decades is a testimony that we have kept our promises throughout.

About IMT CDL

The growing internationalisation of higher education, especially professional courses and institutions, increasing
international cooperation and the emergence of new, transnational education providers are posing a challenge
to higher education systems of the country. The new knowledge-based society demands managers who are
flexible and versatile. They need to learn continuously and upgrade their skills as the technology advances. This
has made distance education more vibrant and rewarding experience. IMT CDL has been contributing to this
educational revolution in its own way. The centre strives to create all round leaders in management and
entrepreneurship by helping its students acquire the necessary skills.

In an effort to reach out to the graduates and working professionals, IMT Centre for Distance Learning offers

in an academic environment, these programmes provide professional education in a flexible academic package.
Adding synergy to these programmes are the specially prepared study materials, interactive lectures by IMT CDL

Today education is not a static regimented process confined to the formative years of childhood or adolescence,
but it is a dynamic and a continuous on-going process that extends throughout the professional careers. In this
ever-changing worldwide phenomenon, the Distance Learning Education Mode is a potent flexible educational
format that offers multiple benefits of flexibility, professional recognition and academic enhancement to the
student.

Enterprise Education Solutions
A management qualification, which was earlier seen just as a degree programme for selective people who
valued higher education, can be a life changing decision for working professionals today. Rigorously
credentialed professional programmes, curricula and facilitation tools, can immensely develop working
professionals across all functions and additionally benefit the organisation within which they are employed.

Our Education Proposition for the Enterprise Education is the closest an organisation can get to have its own
customised Management Education programme without investing into building one.

At the Heart of the Enterprise Education model from IMT CDL is the Action Curriculum empowered by a
globally relevant Concept and Context Curriculum, a rigorous LEAD - Learn, Engage, Apply and Develop
Methodology and a robust technology enabled learning management system. The Model is built by a rare and
intense collaboration of Industry Professionals and Senior Academicians, and is the most unique Biz-Education
endeavour for Young Executives.

The Highlights of our Enterprise Education proposition are as follows;

Designed to Deliver Measurable Business Impact - At IMT CDL we have built a Model that links our
management training solutions with the desired business impact helping organisations precisely measure the
impact and enable optimisation of training investments.

A Learner Support Ecosystem to maximise completion and success rates - Innovative support services ensure
that each learner remains aligned to the learning goals and remains motivated to complete the programme.

Wide Range of Targeted Programmes - We offer the UGC recognised Long term programs (One to Two year)
that lead to premium Management Qualifications.

Sample Admission Test

Nature of Test

The admission test is an objective type test (multiple choices). The test designed to measure a persons
general aptitude, namely:

Proficiency in English Language | Quantitative and Numerical Ability | Ability for Data Analysis and
Interpretation Reasoning and General Interpretation | Awareness of Socio-economic Environment

Proficiency in English Language Passage

In almost all developing countries, the initial thrust of their respective trade policies was to foster domestic
industries whose production would replace imports. This was a natural and logical strategy, given that
import-substituting production could count on an existing known domestic demand, promised some
mitigation of national economic dependence, and could be protected easily from external competition
through high tariffs, quotas, or subsidies of various kinds. Which of the following, if true, would weaken the
strategy above?

A. Domestic demand may be unknown


B. Quotas are more regressive than tariffs
C. Subsidies and import constraints keep domestic prices high and impose a burden on consumers
D. Fast economic growth fosters inequality of income
E. A protectionist policy may beneficial to the developing country, but disliked by economically advanced
countries
