Pride Of A Bajajite! | JBIMS Mumbai

Red is the color of love and passion. Ever wondered why color of blood is red ? Because it connects us with all the organs and help us to work in symphony. The first and the most attractive thing anyone would notice when one looks at JBIMS campus is the red bricks building with a large and very old Banyan tree standing proudly in the so called South Bombay area of Mumbai the city of dreams. I also decided to try my luck in so called mayanagri with a dream to discover myself. Give myself a freedom to push the limits to achieve something I would never think of. And JBIMS campus gives you this opportunity to discover your true calling. Try your hands at many things. JBIMS is a perfect place to discover how someone can use the limited resources and still can achieve the best thing in one’s life.

Connections are very important in life. Same is the case with MBA. I got opportunity to meet people with different qualifications and different backgrounds coming mostly sharing a common dream. A common dream to do something great in a relevant field. We came here together, we are studying together and standing together as a batch in difficult times. Coming to this college gave me a deeper understanding about life, values and what to do and what not to do in life. It gave me a chance to look into different people’s life and be in their shoes to truly understand what they are going through. Everyone is different. We must understand each others pain and try to mitigate it. Life is painful for those who arr afraid of difficulties. It taught me to be firm whatever the circumstances are.

JBIMS is quite different than other colleges. Though we wish to have  a residential campus but what brings uniqueness to the campus is the professors we have. It is not just alumni but the teachers also who teach us values. We get to learn about the subject from the expertise. And we have fun while studying; it is not never a monotonous kind of learning. Our operation subject’s teacher starts his lecture at 6:15 with a morning sun and he will not stop until sun sets; but in his lecture not single person will sleep rather he would not let anyone sleep. He will just approach row that person is sleeping and shout at the peak of his voice. It is not about scoring the marks in exams but about scoring the values in mind that he inculcates.

I got an life time opportunity to be taught by Mr. Jagdeep Kapoor sir. One of our assignment given by Marketing was market survey of garbage bags. And this took me to wholesale market of Mumbai where I would have not gone if I hadn’t come to JBIMS.. So that was a one of the experiences but I got the essence of marketing that day that marketing is not the thing to be done while seating in AC hall and one needs to get onto the ground to actually get the feel of market. But some mysteries are better undiscovered. Like I still have no idea why we have bathtub in middle of our campus. Fun is always there in campus and so is the pressure of doing everything right.

Meeting all the deadlines including submission of various projects, reports and classwork. Some deadlines are unrealistic but we made them happen. I always had inclination towards Finance from the starting. And finance classes in second semester helped me develop that interest. And in summers I have worked with Goldman Sachs as investment bankers and so if given chance I would like to work for Aditya Birla Payments Bank. But most important thing JBIMS taught me is to be open to all the options. I don’t restrict myself to finance only, if given chance I would feel myself to be privileged to work in any of the domain.

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.
