history

An Institute founded in 1965, 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, where 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 going to present themselves on account of the new economic order.

The proximity of Bajaj with the commercial hub of India – Nariman Point serves as an added advantage. This translates into the symbiotic affiliation with the corporate magnets,equipping the students with business acumen to become tomorrow’s leaders.

We are in the process of scaling new heights in the management education having been ranked in Asia’s Top 25 business schools by Asia Inc..

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.

Besides the regular curriculum, the students are also involved in co-curricular activities like inter business school competitions, research projects conducted by the institute and are constantly interacting with the industry, thus strengthening their practical orientation and developing themselves into future business managers.
