JBIMS – My Story So Far

I am a second-year student from JBIMS, Mumbai. There are some great business institutes in India, but I can proudly say none of them offer what JBIMS offers and none can shape a person the way this institute does. The features that I want to focus are: “LOCATION” – situated in the financial hub of India surrounded by the live market. The secondary research may be overtaking primary research to some extent but the true business can be led by only primary research. Our curriculum demands us to continuously carry out primary research in almost all sectors to have a thorough knowledge of the core business strategies that may have been implemented or need to be implemented. “DAY-SCHOLAR” – this has helped me create a perfect balance in my life. As an MBA student, we are expected to put in late hours and JBIMS is the only institute that doesn’t just teach you to stretch yourself but teaches you to go beyond the limits while maintaining a healthy personal and family life. We are workaholic putting in 24*7 for our work but still, this institute has taught us the magic to discover the 25th hour and 8th day of the week to dedicate to our family. “FACULTIES” – more than just faculties they are considered as gods of their fields. Let it be finance, marketing, or operations this temple have gods from all fields. Serving on the boards of some of the leading global firms, it is an honor to get a chance to attend their lectures. Won’t be naming anyone but the institute is still the CEO factory of India, the same CEOs who have learnt from these same gods. It has been over 40 years some of them have been teaching at JBIMS and the legacy and flow of knowledge still continue.

ABG is well spread into various industries from cement to telecom to retail. But of all, I find Aditya Birla Capital Limited very exciting. I am a finance enthusiastic, it would always be a moment of pride to be associated with ABG and to be associated with ABCL will be a cherry on the cake. There are other good companies which focus on insurance, some on raising funds, some on private equity and other but ABCL takes all of them under a single umbrella and provides good diversification. This fact is what really attracts me towards this company compared to its peers and the conglomerate of ABG simply forms a synergy to make this a dream company for any finance enthusiastic business graduate.

JBIMS

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.
