JBIMS is one of the Ivy league MBA institutes in India and it is rightly known for its esteemed and experienced lists of professors that range from industrial stalwarts to successful entrepreneurs. Academics at JBIMS comprises of a perfect blend of theoretical and practical studies and here the professors imbibe students with practical management knowledge and case studies. Application-based study is preferred by most of professors teaching here.

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.
