With this, STME-Indore, a constituent engineering college of the Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS), a Deemed-to-be University with an academic legacy of 41 years, has set yet another milestone of achieving stellar placement records in its campuses across the country. STME-Indore is one of the four campuses of SVKM’s NMIMS, besides Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Shirpur, offering the integrated 5-year MBA (Tech) program.

NMIMS distinguished itself by offering programs across all its campuses that hone the problem solving skills of students with a practice-oriented pedagogy suited to the contemporary changes and emerging needs of the industry. This focus on creating industry-ready talent has led SKVM’s NMIMS to emerge as the most preferred destination for corporates for on campus hirings. The MBA (Tech) program is also curated to serve this need of the industry and hence has seen a similar enthusiasm from recruiters for hiring our MBA (Tech) graduates.”
