KJ SIMSR – An Incredible Learning Experience

Like any MBA aspirant, my journey of MBA entrance preparation started with a sole ambition of getting into an IIM, since IIMs were popular and highly recommended by professors and peers in the corporate world. Although IIMs provide essential learning and opportunities, they are certainly not the only ones imparting quality education in management. When I started my research and identified few best B-Schools based on my CAT percentile, KJ SIMSR was the one that fit the bill for me.

After continuous and rigorous preparation for CAT and GD/PI; I converted “KJ SIMSR”. Life after joining KJ SIMSR is full of learning, excitement, thrill, hard work and joy. I am a part of SIMSR since three months and I have learned a lot through the course structure designed for PGDM as well as through participating in co-curricular activities like sports. New things are learnt each day through peer learning and an individual experiences personality development within a short span of time. SIMSR is one of the most renowned and sought after institute for any MBA aspirant to pursue their MBA since it provides an apt platform to showcase and hone one’s skills.

KJ SIMSR provides PGDM in these 6 courses namely:

•    PGDM

•    PGDM International Business

•    PGDM Retail Management

•    PGDM Financial Services

•    PGDM Integrated Marketing Communications

•    PGDM Health Care Management

All these courses provide super specific insights about their particular fields and make every student adept in their respective areas of interest. KJ SIMSR is basically known for its values and to be at par with SIMSR values is a challenging task making a student’s journey more experiential and learning based. A typical day begins with lectures which consist of Harvard Business School cases, presentations, viva, case study competitions and lots of learning through insights provided by the respective professors who possess sufficient industry knowledge and experience. Post lectures students have committee meetings, live projects, group projects, individual assignments and much more. It’s a hectic task to manage on a regular basis but the immense amount of satisfaction and learning it provides is necessary to dealing such situations in the real business world.

Another benefit of KJ SIMSR is its location. Since it is situated in the financial hub of the country, it provides a huge advantage in terms of industry exposure and placements as all major organizations have their head offices situated in Mumbai. This gets clearly reflected in the placements statistics too.

Writing about KJSIMSR without acknowledging the avenues of sports it provides would be an injustice. Cricket, Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Table Tennis, Squash, Running Track, Open Chess, etc. are just some of the sports that come to mind. For all the Sports enthusiasts present, SIMSR ensures the availability of sufficient opportunities to enhance their holistic development.

An aspirant associates a good B-school with certain attributes; and SIMSR perfectly ticks all the boxes in the lists, having a rich alumni base and continuously being ranked among the top B-School in the country.
