We asked a handful of our students to reflect on their time at GRMI so far and to answer a few questions we put to them. We hope that this series of Q&A gives you a sense of who they are and what they think of the institute. We hope it also provides a window into their academic and extracurricular lives. They all share a common love for GRMI, student experience, and a shared desire to make a difference in the world.

The fact that we can approach faculties and discuss any queries, general stuff, is what I like a lot. Got to learn how to work in a team and what’s the way ahead in a career in risk management in India.
    2. How did the admissions process go for you?
      – – It went pretty well. I had to go through 2 rounds of interviews and prior to that submit an online application. The interview for PGDRM was like any other professional course in India.
