The Institute was founded in 1965 by the University of Mumbai. JBIMS has been a pioneer in management education. JBIMS is consistently ranked among the top 10 premier B-schools in the country with a legacy spanning over the past 52 years. India’s first full time 2-year Masters in Management studies (MMS) was started in JBIMS under the stewardship of the late Dr. K. S. Basu. Being one of the oldest Bschools in India, JBIMS has cemented its reputation as the preferred campus for the country’s most prestigious organizations. The Institute has full-time faculty in the core management disciplines and the functional areas of management. The Institute also has a panel of eminent management experts and senior practicing managers from diverse fields of management. JBIMS offers full-time and part-time programmes in management. The proximity of the Institute with the commercial hub of India is an added advantage. This has strengthened the affiliation of JBIMS with the corporate magnates, illustrious alumni and a large number of eminent visiting faculty. This exposure with the industry experts has helped the students for years to understand the management practices and to hone their skills to match the industry expectations.

From the Director’s Desk

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS), a leading B-School delivering high quality education. JBIMS equips us with the accurate skill set to adjust to the unprecedented challenges the future will present to all of us. We at JBIMS place the core values of respect, honesty, integrity and hard work at the heart of all we do, with each and every student given the very best opportunities to succeed and realize their potential.

As Director of the Institute, I am extremely proud of the rich tradition of providing practical, experience based business education that our institute has upheld since its founding. In 1965 Dr. K. S. Basu (Founder Director) started with the vision statement of being “in business to make a better world”, JBIMS continues to remain faithful to his vision. Even after 55 years, we have remained agile and consider our school a continuous work in progress. We are continually striving to make each program better in terms of content, pedagogical methods, relevance to employer and participant preferences, and being in sync with today’s professional demands.

The success of our students, over 8000 alumni, has been the decades of leadership and experience based knowledge that our faculty bring into the classroom. As thought leaders in their industry, the knowledge and research contributions of our faculty continue to drive change in the area of Management Education.

JBIMS located in the financial capital of India offers unique opportunities for our students to engage with leading corporates and business communities. The payoff is not only professional, but many are also surprised to discover, the return on investment is first and foremost personal.

We look forward to sharing this journey of reflection, discovery, and advancement with you! Thank you to each of our alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends for your continued support.
