The Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) has over the last 35 years grown from a management institute offering a single product namely MBA education to a Deemed to be University offering multiple products through separate schools in Business Management, Pharmacy, Technology Management & Engineering, Architecture, Science, Commerce, Economics and Law. During this journey, it has won many accolades and come to be recognised for its quality and entrepreneurial outlook.

Besides seeing the need for specialist schools in varied disciplines at the headquarters in Mumbai, the parent body has also responded to the felt need for centres of excellence across the country, thereby widening the base of quality higher education. It is with this objective that we set up a campus at Shirpur in Maharashtra in 2007, followed by Bangalore in 2008 and Hyderabad in 2010 to be followed by Indore soon in the coming years.

The Board of Management of NMIMS and the Academic Council, both of which have eminent members – stalwarts from industry and academicians respectively are constantly giving an impetus to improve rigour and quality in all the schools, so that they emerge amongst the top 50 in the world in due course of time. It is this endeavour that has enabled NMIMS to be consistently ranked amongst the top B-schools and universities in India..

The Bangalore campus set up in November 2008 has during the past eight years been the beacon for us in southern India driving the pan India character of the university. The School of Business Management in Bangalore has taken several initiatives with regard to program/ curricula design and industry engagement and created a niche for itself. Its PGDM program has been globally recognised among the top 200 programs in the world and ranked 9th in Central Asia by Ed Universal, a leading European B-School rating agency. It has also been ranked amongst the top 5 emerging B-schools by NHRD. The PGDM and Executive PGDBM programs offered at Bangalore have obtained accreditation from AMBA, U.K and were the first programs in the NMIMS stable to be internationally accredited. We look to our Bangalore campus to add new dimensions in our educational forays and develop meaningful relationships with industry in particular and society in general.
