Diverse Minds Of JBIMS

One thing that I have always been proud of is the bunch of people around me. No wonder I have met with the cream of the cream in JBIMS. Here are students from age 20 to 26, yes we have our differences but our seniors made us realise that, unless and until we all come on the same ground, we won’t achieve what we want to. What more can one ask for?

Let me introduce some of the intelligent idiots. Let me start with the one who, at the age of 21, thought he can train Engineering graduates to be well prepared for getting placed in their dream companies. He did succeed by placing many of them in the companies they wanted to. Another one, who left his job from one of the major players in Indian IT industry to join public sector bank to help people in rural areas with their financial problems.

There is no scarcity of these kinds of dumb people in our batch. There is one who did 4 internships in two months before summer internship placements to understand different roles so that she can decide on her specialisation well before time. We have one who gave suggestions to a well known marketing company on how they can promote their brands better than they are doing currently. We have nerds who can survive and perform better even with a daily sleep of 3-4 hours.

We have friends who are known for their absolutely brilliant questions which raise guest lecturers’ eyebrows. We have outperformer who failed in a subject and scored a record high in the supplementary exam. We have finance geeks of CFA level 2 when other college students don’t know what CFA stands for.

Last but not the least, we have crowns of the batch that got one of the coveted roles for their internship and still finds time to help others whenever required. Every B-School, whether renowned or not, has these kinds of personalities but JBIMS is the place which nourishes them all.

I have always been fond of fashion and I have decided to choose the same as a career option. Aditya Birla Group has many brands like Van Heusen, Allen Solly, Philip Britain, Louis Philippe etc. Apart from these brands, Aditya Birla Group also has Planet Fashion and Madura Fashion & Lifestyle in its portfolio. I would love to grow along with these brands.

JBIMS Placement Committee

JBIMS was established in 1965 by the University of Mumbai in collaboration with the Stanford Graduate School of Business. JBIMS is considered to be unique in management education as it is firmly rooted in the local soil and capable of articulating the Indian ethos. In the contemporary era, when globalization and liberalization are the buzz words, the institute has (without disturbing the said roots) ordered itself to meet the emerging challenges, sentiments and opportunities that are coming with the new economic order.
