Life At JBIMS – A Closely Knit Unit

Before I first set foot in this great institute called JBIMS all I used to think about is how competitive and self-centred people would be and how I would have to tackle the wrath of seniors. But now a year has already passed in this great institute and I can’t even express how wrong my preconceived notion was. I’ve had the most helpful batch ever where we are not individuals but a closely knit unit.

We have a very diverse batch from all over India having different cultures and yes we celebrate each and every one of them as a batch. We help each other during our most difficult times and celebrate during happy moments. Seniors helped us feel the belongingness to this institute right from the day we set foot in this institute. Most of the institutes have professors who are full time this is where JBIMS is different. We have 70% of our faculty who are industry stalwarts having insights and experiences which one can only imagine. We’ve had the honour to be taught by god of operations, Mr Boman Moradian. He is as energetic and young as a 20 year old or maybe even more. We are taught by professor M who has net worth of few thousand crores. One must have done great deeds in past life that one gets to listen to the insights shared by professor M

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.
