Being a full-time MBA student in JBIMS student, one is always kept 'on the go' what with last-minute the lectures being scheduled! As JBIMS consists of mostly external faculty, expect the weekends to be very hectic! However, all these weekend lectures are worth it as one gets to learn and gain knowledge from industrial stalwarts like Prof. Boman Moradian, Prof. Manekar, Prof. Bhattacharjee, Prof. J.K. Kapoor, and the list seems endless. The lecture timings can range from 1 hour to 6 hours at a stretch depending on the professor teaching the subject.
Another USP of JBIMS is that its guest lectures which are held regularly so that the students get exposed to real-time management examples and scenarios. Personally, I found these lectures really helpful as it helped my broaden my horizons and we also get to interact with JBIMS alumni during these lectures via doubt sessions. There are approximately 2 to 3 guest lectures held every month and they cover all domains - finance, marketing, operations, HR, etc.
