Every good management institute produces successful people who reach the top in their respective fields. But very few institutions produce leaders who achieve supremacy and lead by example. Such extraordinary leaders do not come from colleges that focus solely on book-based knowledge; rather, they come from institutions that foster confidence, while instilling discipline, the spirit of service, teamwork, integrity, and ethics.

With a rich heritage rooted in military ethos, the Army Institute of Management & Technology (AIMT) provides top-tier education that builds not just great business leaders but also responsible citizens. While the institute provides various management subjects, its business analytics speciali-zation is worth mentioning as it holistically approaches the subject by balancing technology, data-driven strategies, and ethical practices. In an interview with CEO Insights Dr. J.K. Sahu, Air Commodore (Retd), Director, shares more about the college.
