IMT Dubai was enthralled to welcome Fincasa Capital on its campus.

IMT Dubai was enthralled to welcome Fincasa Capital on its campus. The company provides tailor-made services for businesses that wish to relocate to other countries by way of making investments worldwide. The company operates in the investment migration industry, as mentioned by the CEO, Varis Sayed. He briefly explained about this emerging industry and how it engages an excellent talent pool. Starting small himself, he emphasized on the fact that it’s the path that matters and not how or where we actually begin. He urged everyone to aim for value addition and invest time to develop skills and knowledge.

IMT Dubai would like to thank the Fincasa team for taking out time and enlightening us about the company’s workings and environment. The students surely added value in their lives through this session.


IMT had the pleasure of hosting Mr. Balaji Vaidyanathan, Marketing Director, Franklin Templeton

On 7th November, we hosted Mr. Balaji Vaidyanathan, Marketing Director, Franklin Templeton. He spoke about “Money and Millennials “. In today’s day and age where savings are the last thing on millennial’s mind, Mr. Vaidyanathan shed light on why we should not let savings be in the hindsight.

He shared that not only investments have the ability of support our long-term plans but also suffice our short-term needs. It is the chase of short-term gratification that one should not pursue, keeping in mind a bigger picture and investing systematically one can better prepare for exigencies, rising standards of living and an early retirement, he said.
Mr. Vaidyanathan also touched upon the variance among investors across different countries in terms of financial education. He shared the importance of capitalising on the three Ts – Time, Technology and Taking risks.

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Mr. Balaji Vaidyanathan for taking the time to address us.


IMT had the pleasure of hosting Mr. Makram Hani

Mr. Makram Hani introduced everyone to various facets of Real Estate marketing and how it is different from marketing FMCG goods.

Mr. Hani stressed upon the need of developing a habit of reading, to keep abreast with the marketing trends. He also talked about AI and technology and how they remain to be the game changers in their true sense.
