Message from Director

It is indeed my proud privilege to welcome you to K J Somaiya Institute of Management Studies & Research, located in the heart of Mumbai, a lush green campus of 60 acres, with more than 1500 trees, landscaped gardens, world class infrastructure and sports facilities, 83,000+ books in the library, e-databases, wi-fi connectivity, learned faculty, supportive staff, opportunities to study in an experiential  learning format, yoga, holistic self-management, foreign languages, culture and religion – a campus that is vibrant, fully residential and one that will help you to realize your true potential  in the field of management education and beyond. The power of a truly academic ambience within the heart of Mumbai to unleash excellence within an individual cannot be underestimated.

The meaning and context of management education has completely changed in today’s highly connected, complex and dynamic environment.  There are also many challenges in delivering management education to a tech enabled and always-on globalized student community. Management education does not only mean acquiring textbook knowledge,  coveted degrees and getting jobs in the organized sector, but also developing an empathy for  creating  opportunities and a better world for the under privileged and under developed sections of society. 

The course curricula across our PGDM course go beyond class room learning to include thru case studies, on-the-filed experiential leading and thru industry interface in the form of guest lectures from industry experts. Our students are spoilt for choice as they get an opportunity to learn foreign languages like Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish, French including Sanskrit and Pali. Our focus at the institute is also to encourage students to participate in various co-curricular and extracurricular activities. The institute also provides opportunities for students with entrepreneurial abilities.  

Along with my colleagues in the faculty and staff, I welcome you whole heartedly to Somaiya Vidyavihar and SIMSR and look forward to partner you in your journey towards excellence. Together, let’s build a great future for ourselves and our country !!!!!!!!

 

Best Wishes,

Prof (Dr.) Monica Khanna
