● Faculty: • Welingkar does boast of some really good faculty and even does complete justice to it. • Some professors are really experienced and have a lot of knowledge to share. It is the only reason why I would like to suggest aspiring students to take admission in this institute. • One drawback is that some of the faculty are very austere. ● Studies, Projects, Assignments and more: • Studies at Welingkar can be a lot of fun which imparts a lot of practical knowledge with live projects, field work and life skills. • Usually the end of every trimester (for PGDM students)/semester (for MMS students) is very hectic with presentations almost every alternate day. • CGPA is given a lot of importance here. 4) Administration and clerical staff: • I must say that the clerical staff here is some times rude and uncooperative. Overall summary in general :- ●Pros - Good learning environment by imparting practical knowledge. - Training regarding Corporate ethics, dressing and behaviour is imparted in day-to-day college life and Foundation Fortnight ( a grilling process for first 15 days of college). - Good alumni network ● Cons - For out of Mumbai students, be ready to not meet your family for 6 months at a stretch because ther are NO holidays! - You get your time table only before 3 days so you cannot plan you days ahead. - You feel like you are in a boarding school with the amount of strictness and interference. You feel like you have come to a primary school and you are scolded every now and then.


• There are councils like Management council, Placement council, Alumni council etc.

• There is no cultural festival but it has a sports festival called IMPACT.

About Prin L N Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research, Mumbai

Overview of Prin L N Welingkar Institute of Management Development & Research:

"The illiterate of this century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn."
- Alvin Toffler

At Welingkar, we are deeply inspired by these words of this great American writer and futurist. Undoubtedly, being convinced of the need for a radical change in management education, we decided to tread the path that leads to corporate revolution.

Emerging unarticulated needs and realities need a new approach both in terms of thought as well as action. Cross-disciplinary learning, discovering, scrutinizing, prototyping, learning to create and destroy the mind's eye needs to be nurtured and differently so.

We school has chosen the 'design thinking' approach towards management education. All our efforts and manifestations, as a result, stem from the integration of design thinking into management education.

We dream to create an environment conducive to experiential learning.

"We want that education by which character is formed, the strength of mind is increased, intellect is expanded and by which one can stand on one's own feet. Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man." – Swami Vivekananda

As you peruse further, the brochure will reveal our experiences, achievements, and the will to disseminate knowledge to create a brighter future for you. After all, nothing enlightens the human mind like the good education.
