JBIMS is a life changing experience. It produces world class managers and leaders with values deeply entrenched and firmly rooted in the Indian soil. Therefore it’s not a wonder as to why JBIMS is called the ‘CEOs factory’.

This is what a student, Rishabh Shah from the Batch of 2012 at JBIMS, has to say about the life here:

“In the initial couple of months we learnt time management, how to handle pressure situations, presentation skills etc. My confidence, general knowledge and acumen were tested straight on, as we were faced with many challenging activities with stiff deadlines.

Our eyes twinkled with admiration for brilliance when we were introduced to the veteran faculty of JBIMS who are not just preachers, but also practitioners.These stalwarts were giving us learning of 3 decades in 3 hours. We were asked to catch the true flavour of the bazaar by venturing out on the streets to learn marketing skills and were made to comprehend the implications of numbers in financial statements.”
