The college is good compared to other private institutes but needs to grow a lot.

Placements: I have no knowledge about placements in college as I am studying by myself currently. But according to my seniors, placements in the college so far are not very good. There is a lot of manipulation faced by students for internships.

Infrastructure: The college has a small building. Wi-Fi facility is available in the college. There is no proper cafeteria available. There is a library provided as well. There is also a computer lab, but the systems are outdated. Design and innovation academy is a part of IMS Noida ...

Ims-Dia Noida, It’s an average college and the campus is really very small. Canteen area is so not good and food too. Crowd is below average. I am studying in this college because it’s nearby my house and Pearl University was far. In case of faculty members, some are very good and some are just ok. I will never recommend this college to anyone. Fee structure is high and facilities are not good at all.

Job placements in fashion designing are very good if it's done from a reputed college.
A fresher can get up to Rs. 25,000 to 40,000 as the first payment package and also it depends upon from which college you have completed your degree course.
Graduates of NIFT fetch the highest salary packages.
