The draft World Development Report 2019 by World Bank also suggests that the formal sector or industry in India pays twice as much as in the informal sector. We just need to upskill the youngsters to join the formal sector by internationally acclaimed qualification. At ISIM, we are committed to work towards nurturing the next generaton of qualified image leaders”.

It not only offers a platform for entrepreneurship but also provides employment opportunities in the field of human resources management, learning & development and training. Industries such as Aviation, Retail & Education are already recruiting individuals with Image Management qualifications.”
