“Where Magic Happens” – JBIMS Mumbai

Stepping through the entrance of the legendary red-brick building was an incredible experience. The legacy of the place commanded reverence. The classrooms, the floors, everything immortalizes the heritage that lies within the walls of this building. The eagerness and exhilaration to be a part of this institute was complemented with a speck of intimidation.

Time is a luxury at a B-School, and the batch realised the criticality of this line as the lectures commenced. The chaotic lecture timings, gruelling assignments and panicky presentation schedules hit us severely. But amongst all this, we knew something that kept us motivated, kept us fighting, kept us from quitting; the name – Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies.

JBIMS is one of the top B-schools in the country, and what makes it grand is the people connected to it. The alumni, the faculty, the students, all contribute in some sense to aid in achieving the present stature of the institute in the country. JBIMS is also termed as the ‘CEO Factory’ owing to the gigantic alumni base and their position in the corporate domain. And when these CEOs get back to the institute to bestow their learnings in the commercial world over to the students, the outcome is magical. With experiences right from their academic term to their tenure at several positions in an organization or at numerous organizations, their teachings are cherished and passed on to the further generations who become a part of this great establishment.

JBIMS is situated at one of the best locations in the country; the proximity to several business headquarters poses a big advantage to the institute. This B-school presents a wonderful opportunity to the students to connect with people from the industry.

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

Aditya Birla Group is one of the biggest conglomerates in India with operations in several countries worldwide. One of the major strengths of the organization lies in the diverse sectors they deal in. With such massive presence in the industry, the opportunity of working for this establishment would be a remarkable feat in one’s career. Aditya Birla Retail Limited would be a great prospect for me to start my corporate career with. The projected growth for the FMCG industry complements the yearning to work in retail and learn more throughout my journey in the business world.

At JBIMS, one opens to several opportunities to learn more about businesses, meeting prominent personalities and learning from some of the best lecturers in the country. Such colossal merits make JBIMS one of the best in the country, where students learn to live life the way it is expected in the real world waiting for them after the two years of hard-work and discipline. Indeed, here magic happens!

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.
