There Is A Lot Behind The Red Building! | JBIMS Mumbai

At the first look, JBIMS really underwhelms you. A nondescript building in a prime locality in the heart of the financial capital of India which covers an area that is a fraction of the size of other management institutes with which it competes. You really start questioning is this the institute that is known as the CEO factory?

All the fears that you have are put to rest in the first month itself.

What the institute lacks in infrastructure is overcome by the intellectual development that it provides. A unique feature of this institute is that you get the timetable only a day before and lectures are conducted on all the 7 days of the week. This really sets the bedrock for the students who would face countless uncertainties throughout their corporate career.

The most striking feature is the number of industry faculty that the institute gets and the amount of learning you get from them. The amount of experience each professor brings with them is unmatched and is a shift from the theoretical approach to learning that we were used to before. This approach makes attending lectures an interesting part of the MBA journey as you don’t want to miss upon the knowledge shared in the lectures as that is the current trend in the industry and would help you once you enter into the corporate world.

JBIMS has provided everyone with a platform to engage with such industry stalwarts on a daily basis, an opportunity which most would envy. JBIMS makes sure that you don’t miss on the most important aspect of the MBA journey that is the practical learning that translates into an industry ready management professional at the end of two years. Halfway through my MBA journey, I could proudly say that what the institute lacks in infrastructure is covered up by the learning and this really is the place that gives you the most knowledge per square feet.

Which ABG Company would you want to work for and why?

At ABG I would like to work for Ultratech Cement. India has always been on the back foot when it comes to infrastructure and there is a lot of scope for development. Many people living in cities live in slums and the roads in India are still not on par with even some of the developing nations. A lot of infrastructure projects are coming across the country from affordable housing projects to new highways and railways. An important aspect to make these projects successful is cement. Cement industry plays an important role in the development of the nation and it would be exciting to be a part of such an industry in the developing years of the country.

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.
