Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies also known as the CEO factory is one of the top notch institutes in India. Each of these top notch institutes carry their own differentiating factor. So does JBIMS.
The factors which make JBIMS stand out from other institutes includes its strong Alumni base, Location and Professors from Industry. Big names in the industry such as Uday Kotak, Noshir Kaka, Ajay Piramal, Chanda Kochhar, etc. form the flag bearers of the CEO factory. The perks of having a strong alumni base includes strong reach to the Industry on goings. Another factor would be its location i.e. Mumbai Meri Jaan. The commercial capital of India provides various opportunities for Market Research, Off-summer projects, etc. which help in providing a real life experience of the industry. Moreover, the B-school has guest lecturers coming on a weekly basis. JBIMS enjoys the guidance of Industry stalwarts such as Sandeep Gokhale (JSW President), Jagdeep Kapoor (Marketing Guru), Nitin Ghadiyar (Accomplished Marketer) , Shivanand Mankekar (Top notch Investor) , etc as visiting faculty.
These industry stalwarts train us for the extreme situations that we might face in our professional careers. For example, Professor Mankekar taught us to take a holistic view of the business then invest instead of relying only on the key financial statements.The rigorous curriculum consisting of subjects from different domains of the Business administration helps us in taking a holistic view of the business which prove out to be fruitful in understanding the complete value chain of the industry we will be working in. Moreover, life at JBIMSis not only studying. We at JBIMS are part of different committees such as Catalyst Forum, Students Academic committee, E-cell, Alumni committee, etc which helps us to nurture our Personality apart from curriculum.
