NMIMS strives hard to get students trained in all the fields of education to make them complete individuals. The university has a beautiful library with huge volumes of books and a large capacity. NMIMS also encourages students to do research in the field of their interest by providing them equipment required for research through research centres and labs. Internships are one of the innovative ways to get students exposed to the corporate and industrial worlds. NMIMS provides internships at various corporates all over the world for students seeking an industrial outlook before they enter the real world. NMIMS was started with the major goal of education to all. We provide scholarships to students and also fund their research projects so that there would be no backing out of students due to financial problems.
Case study approach
The School of Business Management (SBM) has been actively engaging industry and academia to conduct case study-based courses. A large number of areas covering the areas of Finance, Marketing, Human Resources and Behavioural Sciences, Operations and Decision Sciences are conducted using case studies.
A mentorship program has been put in place to ensure outstationstudents are at ease in matters relating to their lives at the School. Agroup of students is put under a faculty who acts as his mentor. ABuddy Concept is another way to make the students at home. A final yearstudent is attached to a freshman to interact, advise and enlighten himwith various procedures of the university.
As the campus is in the heart of the financial capital of the country-Mumbai, for students it is an ideal opportunity to learn and interact through corporate projects. The IIPC cell, with its objective to promote industry-academia linkage places emphasis on learning by applying theoretical concepts learned in the classroom on live Industry projects. These corporate projects vary from 1-3 months.
