Vice Chancellor’s Message



The Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS) has over the last 33 years grown from a management institute to a Deemed to be University (as per UGC Norms) . It is one of the few diversified deemed universities in India with separate schools in Business Management, Pharmacy, Technology Management & Engineering, Architecture, Science, Commerce and Economics. During this journey, it has won many accolades from accreditation agencies and management associations.

Besides seeing the need for specialist schools in varied disciplines at the headquarters in Mumbai, the parent body, that is the NMIMS University 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 in Shirpur in Maharashtra in 2007, followed by Bangalore in 2008, Hyderabad in 2010.

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 all the schools 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 five in a recent survey of B-schools by a leading agency.

Our Bangalore campus set up in November 2008 has during the past six 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 also been globally recognised among the top 200 programs in the world by Ed Universal a leading European B-School rating agency. We trust our Bangalore campus will add a new dimension in academics and research and take the excellent relationship we have with industry to the next level.
