DCP program has 1st year in dubai and 2nd at Ghaziabad . Then why is the mentioned dor 2 years at dubai. What is the dcp fees in total for 2 years?

1. For DCP, first year is in Dubai and select year is in Ghaziabad. Can you please confirm as there is some confusion regarding this.

2. Do the placements take place with the students from IMT Ghaziabad only at the IMT Ghaziabad campus?

3. Median and average package for IMT DCP program?

I had a query regarding the call letter I have received. 

It states that I am short-listed for CT-GE-PI for PGDM,MBA and DCP programs but the campuses mentioned are IMT-N, IMT-H and    IMT-D only(not IMT-G)

Please clarify that whether I am short-listed for the DCP program or not?

I have just completed my application to IMT. But after the payment I did not receive any confirmation email that the payment was done successfully. But the Rs 2030 was deducted from my card and I received the corresponding message in my phone. Now when I am logging in the application form still shows the make payment option and clicking on which leads to the Payment Gateway again

Many people have been asking questions about DCP and what all you will be entitled to as part of this course. We have compiled some basic information which might help you analyse your Return on Investment (ROI) and make an informed decision:

1. DCP is IMT Ghaziabad's course and is no different from any other course except for the fact that you get to spend your first year in Dubai, which has many advantages in itself.  

2. DCP’s curriculum is similar to that of IMT Ghaziabad with some tweaks to leverage on the Dubai experience. 

3. There is no differentiation during the second year. DCP students attend the same classes and attend placements along with all the other students of IMT Ghaziabad. In fact, students of all courses get along really well. (Please do not have any misconceptions on this)  

4. The certificate will mention PGDM (Dual Country Program) from IMT Ghaziabad.   

5. The tentative dates for the foundation module is provided in the mails received from IMT. 


6. The details about the loan process would be communicated to you by the college authorities.  

7. DCP students would be paying around 23 Lakhs, which is inclusive of Hostel, Mess charges etc.  

8. DCP students have the option to select their specialisation in the second year. This would be very helpful, as students would have proper insights on where they would fit into after one year of MBA experience.

9. Faculty: DCP has faculty coming from colleges like IMT-G, IMT-D, IIMs, XLRI and foreign Institutes. We also have visiting faculty from colleges like IIM-B, DSE etc. You can rest be assured that you would be having some of the best professors to teach you. 

10. There would be many guest lectures during your time at Dubai from people who hold esteemed positions and are currently in the industry with decades of industry experience.  

11. You would be having a few industrial visits too during your time at Dubai. Our batch had a chance to visit the Coca-Cola plant, industry visits in Jebel Ali. 

12. The international exposure just amps up your whole learning process and your CV. We are required to complete at least one company project. The company projects start rolling in after the end of first term. The work culture in Dubai is different from that offered in India and it is quite open and welcoming. These projects helped us in understanding the Dubai work culture and we gained a hands on experience in the field which we intend to enter into eventually.   

13. The process of summer Internships in Dubai starts in the month of January, as December is the financial year end in Dubai. Companies like Oglivy and Mather, Britannia International, Sharaf DG, Canara Bank, Souq.com, Choitrams, Fleishman Hillard, Redington Gulf, Weber Shandwick, Jumeirah and sorts have been a part of our process this year.   

14. There would be both cultural and business events which you can participate. We have won competitions held from IIM B, IIM K, GOMC, GMC etc.   

15. You would be getting many chances to organize events. This year, The DCP students have played an important role in organising the TEDx, Vaudeville at IMT Dubai. We have also volunteered in various events held outside campus.   

16. You can play football, volleyball, TT in the college itself. We have played decent amount of cricket this year in a spacious parking lot. Though you would be playing in a proper cricket field during competitions. Besides, you have basketball court and a pool table, which are a few footsteps away from the campus and are available for free. You also have a gym in the campus as well.   

17. The lodging in Dubai is the best one can expect from an MBA college with A/C rooms, washing machines and refrigerators available on every floor. The food available in the mess is decent with the menu decided by the students themselves. There are good number of restaurants and cafes you can resort to, whenever you want to order something from outside.   

18. On an average, the expenses would be around 500 Dirhams. Again many people spend below this and a few above this amount. It all depends on your way of living.  


19. And finally, there are many places around Dubai which would leave some lasting memories. It is too early to mention the places one must visit during their stay in Dubai. We would keep you updated when the time is right.  

20. You would not have senior guidance in person. The only time we might meet is for a couple of days during your foundation module at Ghaziabad and during the city meets before the foundation module. Each junior would be assigned a DCP senior to clarify your queries during your time at Dubai. Apart from this, Dhananjai and I would be there to address and help you from any query/concern. Like the way we did, you can learn from senior's experiences and tap the opportunities we have missed out on.   

Did DCP miss something which would make you feel a part of a top B-school? We understand this is an important life decision. So, please get the information from the right sources. Do not believe in speculations, please join the below group to get any of your queries clarified. (Don't forget to send us a screenshot of the call letter). Finally, your college is as good as you. So, if you think you are worth it, your college/course is too.
