-- “There are some students, who are so convinced in the philosophy and ambience of the educational institute they come from, that they remain associated with their alma mater always. Geetika Trivedi is one such IMT CDL alumni. Despite having her own successful entrepreneurial set-up in the form of ‘Knowledge Point’ in Noida, Geetika dedicates time to IMT CDL, as a regular faculty. The fact that she is also pursuing an MPhil and PhD from IGNOU makes this even more commendable.
“On a typical day I am at ‘Knowledge Point’ by 10 o’clock, to oversee its smooth functioning, as well as teach. Twice a week I’m at the Maidangarhi campus of IGNOU for my MPhil-PhD classes, which start at 2’o clock. Over weekends - especially Sundays - I’m either at Dilshad Garden or Noida, as per schedule, to take 2-3 classes for the IMT CDL program. My relation with IMT CDL has come a full circle; from attending weekend classes… to taking weekend classes.”
Geetika believes it’s the bare minimum she can do for the Institution that has given her the pride of being an achiever. She relates how, after her PGDM from IMT CDL, wherever she dropped her resume she always received an interview call, on the sheer power of the IMT-brand. Geetika thinks that the strength of IMT CDL lies in its content, the examination scheme, and the ability to deliver its content on the technological backbone. As an edupreneur and a teacher, Geetika feels that premium distance learning programmes like IMT CDL are going to be the norm in the future.
“Distance Learning Programmes of premium institutes like IMT CDL are treated at par with the best MBA institutes in the country. Many of the IMT CDL alumni are working professionals - doctors, engineer and even government servants. The trend in the corporate world today is to have the employees do an MBA, without having them leave the organization.”
About IMT CDL: Education is the acquisition of the art of utilization of knowledge. Knowledge in the management field, like other disciplines, is expanding very fast.
Education is central to the human resources development and empowerment in any country, and the quality of education is judged by the kind of humans it produces. Education is the means whereby adults pass on their beliefs and values to their children.
The growing internationalization of higher education, especially professional courses and institutions, increasing international co-operation and the emergence of new, transnational education providers are posing a challenge to national higher education systems. 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. Innovative forms of transnational education based on internet have been opened to students around the world. This has made distance education more vibrant and a rewarding experience.
