SPJIMR - S P Jain Institute Of Management & Research Mumbai Mumbai, Fees, Courses, Admission Date Updates

SPJIMR grew rapidly in eminence from one of the three B-schools in Mumbai in 1981 to one of the top ten B-schools in the country by 1994-1995. The bold move to disaffiliate SPJIMR from the then Bombay University to have freedom in course curriculum, pedagogic innovations and pioneering programmers in socially under managed sectors was a beginning of its journey to achieve the mandate it has given itself in terms of unique innovative and distinct path in management education. The institute has an enviable track record of recognizing the needs of society, especially the under managed sectors, and responding with quick and appropriate responses.

SPJIMR's growth is based on the commitment to diversify into socially relevant segments and activities that are not adequately addressed at societal level, and accordingly impart the requisite management education.
In order to make the management education more effective, SPJIMR took the following action

Structured architecture to respond to the development and administration of programs socially relevant to specific segments
Developed pedagogic innovations, which are the strategic strength of the institute, to suit specific needs of each segment
Ensured attention to the traditional individual areas such as Marketing, Finance Operations and Information Management

With a sprawling campus located in the heart of Mumbai city, SPJIMR is an autonomous management institute with entrepreneurial agility ensuring self-financing, personal freedom with professional accountability and corporatized culture, structure and processes.

Mission Statement

We recognize our twin roles – as a responsible member of Bhartiya Vidya Bhavan and as a responsive member of Indian society at large – and look at ourselves in a wider context as a ‘Beyond MBA’ institution. We spire to be a globally recognized institute with concurrent presence in socially relevant segments of Indian society.

We emphasize ‘Influencing Practice’ and ‘Promoting value-based growth’, which remain the guiding posts for planning and execution in all that we do.

In all our endeavours, we emphasize (i) attitudes and skills as much as knowledge, (ii) indigenous learner-centric pedagogy, and (iii) global best practices. Our attempt is to synthesize the apparent contradictions between western efficiency and eastern ethos and competition and collaboration. We believe this could be a global model one day.

As a self-reliant institution, we seek operational freedom and encourage an entrepreneurial, agile and flexible organizational culture working on a collaborative pursuit of innovative solutions.

SPJIMR community strives to realize the objectives of the institution through self-accountability , professional discipline and hard work.

Post Graduate Program in Management

Recognizing the need of the industry for thought leaders in middle level management, SPJIMR has successfully endeavoured to create the Postgraduate Program in Management (PGPM) now in its ninth year. It is a 15-month full-time programme with 3 months of web learning and 12 months of campus learning offered by SPJIMR for participants with a minimum 5 years of work experience. As a career accelerator, the programme leverages on the participants’ past experiences and aims to create and nurture value-based future leaders to take on higher management roles. The unique aspect of the programme is the focus on the specific Role and Domain that the participant is interested to pursue. The customized approach ensures A) Contextually specific role and domain focus ; B) Functionally integrated teaching-learning process .
Industry Need

The rapid growth of business has thrown open the need for a very large number of middle level and senior level management professionals in most companies. They are required to have a general management perspective with focused domain expertise on the businesses they serve. The current demand for such professionals is expected to far exceed the availability. Internal promotions within the organization alone will not be sufficient to feed this demand..
Participant Need

The PGPM programme is best suited for working professionals to add value to their careers in a short time. It provides a great opportunity to those participants who want to rejoin the industry quickly at higher remunerations. The programme is rigorous, challenging and intense. The programme encourages learning beyond classroom discussions and the intense process prepares participants to analyze situations quickly and apply skills to real business situations. One learns to combine one's industry expertise with the fundamentals of management that one is exposed to over the year. Successful leaders and entrepreneurs regularly visit the campus to provide their perspectives on the ever-changing dynamics of the industry.
