JBIMS – A Story In Itself!

JBIMS is situated in the heart of the city where headquarters of most of the companies in India are situated. The strategic location offers a holistic learning experience with academic rigor and interactions with eminent industrialists to gain pragmatic insights of Business .As students we get opportunity to attend sessions conducted by prestigious institutions like IMC Chamber of commerce and industry, SEBI, BSE and many other companies in Mumbai. It helps us to analyze the concepts from various dimensions and develops an insight.

As JBIMS enjoys healthy relations with industry, Most of the faculties visiting the campus are working professionals. We are blessed with faculties who have more than 30 years of practical experience of the subject. Right from the financial stock market experts to Board of directors teach us. Each faculty shares the subject matter with practical insights of his relevant experience. I am inspired by Mr. Mankekar sir who teaches financial management. His focus is on understanding the fundamentals of the company and not just on the figures from financial performance. Such learnings have inspired me to think from different dimensions in an unconventional manner and have deeply impacted the way I perceive financial aspects.

JBIMS is known as the ‘’CEO factory”. The rich alumni base supports the students and guides them by conducting sessions or mentoring on one to one basis. The various off summer projects are offered to the students and accessibility to the industry helps the students to successfully work on the projects. MBA at JBIMS imbibes us three main qualities ‘’Passion for learning’’, “Culture of Excellence” and “Timeliness”. As the campus is non-residential it teaches us the value of managing everything within the stipulated time. It can be from completing the projects within time to attending every lecture on time after travelling in Mumbai traffic, preparing for corporate competitions and also managing the committee work.

After the full day of work marine drive which is at 5 minutes walk contemplates by to forget everything. It gives us energy to keep moving and keep fighting with a clean slate just like the spirit of Mumbai. The MBA Journey at JBIMS can be best described as a “self-actualization”.
