INTO THE CEO FACTORY
At Bajaj you learn that three things are elastic: hunger, sleep and patience. Over the past eight months, students here have become super-humans bordering on the extreme limits of all the three parameters. But amidst all this rush the one thing that binds us is the unadulterated love for this unique college. And that is why, I can proudly say that if there is MBA on earth ‘It is here; it is here; it is here!’
I wrote CAT, CET, SNAP, XAT amongst other MBA admission exams. I scored decently in all of them and ultimately (after GD/PI) I had to choose between IIM Indore/SIBM/New IIMs/JBIMS. I chose JBIMS because this was the only institution which ranked in top 10 MBA institutes in India which I had converted. Secondly, the fees for the 2 year course ( Rs. 1lakh/year) were another factor which weighed in favor.
FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES
Fee for the academic years 2015-17 was Rs. 1 lakh/year. One of the cheapest fee structure among B-schools all over the world. When compared with the output that a student takes with him after graduating from JBIMS the course fee seems nothing. That is why JBIMS is the second best B-school in the country in terms of Return on Investment.

Most of the faculties are visiting faculties who have a good industry experience in the subjects which they teach. They are considered masters in their respective fields within the industry and they teach at JBIMS solely because they like teaching.
