Shaping global professionals through the Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS)
JBIMS was founded by the University of Mumbai in collaboration with the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University with donation from the Jamnalal Bajaj Seva Trust. Here students are groomed into well rounded management thinkers and practitioners through an in-depth curriculum and mind-stimulating co-curricular activities. Even the institute's library is a perennial fount of knowledge with a collection of over 40,000 books including classics and latest writings by management gurus.
