Management education as we know it is undergoing a paradigm shift with respect to its objectives and the purpose it serves.

The pace of change in the business environment due to digitization represents major challenges. At the same time it is imperative that businesses exist not only to make profits but also to ensure inclusive growth that encompasses all sections of society.

Management education should become a platform where students who aspire to join the professional workplace should experience personal and professional transformation along with ample opportunities to take part in the digital and social transformations that are sweeping India and the world.

K J Somaiya Institute of Management Studies & Research (SIMSR), which started in the year 1981 in the heart of Mumbai has the vision, “Our dream is to build a world class research and teaching institution that is global in the reach of its ideas and universal in its service”. SIMSR is committed to achieve exemplary stands in management education that will not only achieve its vision but also the redefined parameters of management education.

SIMSR acknowledges that the student community continues to grow in the virtual space and wants to develop itself into global managers while inculcating the timeless principles of ethics and good governance.

SIMSR continues relentlessly to raise the bar and set new benchmarks for the course curricula across all its PGDM Programmes that go beyond the classroom to include learning through case studies, on-the-field experiential learning, developing entrepreneurial spirit and being part of socially relevant projects. In addition, industry interface in the form of guest lectures from industry experts, student clubs and committees, holistic self-management classes, sports facilities adds to the pedagogy. SIMSR thrives in nurturing the intellectual, emotional, spiritual, social and physical persona of the students to evolve as well-rounded human beings.

The students are spoilt for choice as they get an opportunity to learn foreign languages like Mandarin and Spanish and opportunities for international immersions. We strive to embolden the spirit of victory in our students as they participate in competitions across the country and in various co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The institute also endeavors to provide a platform for students with entrepreneurial orientation.

Along with my faculty colleagues, staff , our illustrious alumni and Students, I welcome you wholeheartedly to SIMSR and look forward to partner you in your journey towards excellence. Together, let’s build a great future for our country and ourselves.
