Prospectus 2010-12 A Unique Curriculum with special focus on Digital based Business Models & Management Practices An Edge over other Business Schools

JIM-I's Path Breaking initiative

Transforming and Leading Management Education and Careers in Digital Age

JIM - Indore Jaipuria Institute of Management (JIM) group has established its fourth campus in the city of Indore to bring in a contemporary perspective in business and management education. A review of global management education indicates a growing & compelling need for managers capable of using digital technology across different sectors of industry as digitisation of business and management practices is the only way to gain competitive advantages in a knowledge driven economy. Most B- Schools are imparting digital education under the IT and systems courses at the technical level but without the management perspective. Therefore, there is a dire need for a curriculum that integrates digital practices, dynamics in virtual space, issues, and digital based business models into foundation and perspective building courses in management education. JIM-I develops a unique curriculum considering the current context of business and industry as per the following perspectives:


The universe of digital world is growing bigger and more powerful. It is influencing the lives of people globally across all social and economic backgrounds educated and illiterate, rich and poor, urban and rural.


No industry, government or community can ensure services s p e e d i l y, economically convenient to consumers without shifting their strategies, policies and operations to digital space.

Perspectives on Contemporary Management Education


Organisations across the world have grown multi-fold and gained advantages of speed, cost reduction, outsourcing, mass customisation, and consumer centric practices by innovating through co-creation and efficient business operations across the globe.


Demographics have been changing at a much faster rate than ever before. More and more consumers are entering into the NET Generation and are more comfortable with technology. They seek special focus for services on the ‘e’ platform.


Today all organizations want to switch over fully or partially to ‘e’-marketing, ‘e’-HR, ‘e’-finance, ‘e’ services, ‘e’ commerce, ‘e’- procurement and ‘e’ supply chain management and so on.

In view of the above context, organisations need graduates with digital business management capabilities to lead their operations to ‘e’ platform and create new set of opportunities.

Commitment to Education Seth Anandram Jaipuria College in Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta) has the distinction of being inaugurated by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru. The institute is well known not only for imparting quality education but also for effecting all round development of students. Setting up of four campuses of Jaipuria Institutes of Management took this commitment to next level. We are guided by an overarching mission to promote human well being through effective education. JIM Approach to Learning We believe in a learner-centric approach, where learning is imparted using means suited to an individual’s abilities and interests. Jaipuria believes Management is an experiential discipline and encourages “learning by doing” to help internalize and absorb various management concepts. The goal is to develop students with action oriented mindsets who can apply concepts and principles in real life situations. In other words, we don’t see ourselves as routine products of MBAs, but facilitators of imaginative managerial minds.

INDORE CITY A National Hub for Professional Education

Indore, the 15th largest city of India is full of kaleidoscopic hues right from its historical perspective of the kingdom of Holkars up to its contemporary association with Raja Ramanna Centre of Advanced Technology. During the days of the Maratha Empire it was an important halt between the Deccan and Delhi. Cheerful hospitality, pleasant evenings being situated on the plateau of Malwa, a home to the people of all color, language and culture, colorful festive environment and being famous in the name of Detroit of India for its SEZ makes it a perfect place for setting up industries and top class educational institutions. Indore, popularly known as Mini Mumbai, is the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh with a bulk of its trade coming from Large, Mid and Small scale manufacturing industries. These industries range from Automobile to Pharmaceutical and from Petroleum Refineries to Textile. Indore's major sources of income are from Textile, Education and metal works industries.

All these beget to make Indore as central India’s biggest learning and quality educational hub. To name a few of them l l l

How to Reach Indore? Indore is well connected with the other bigger cities of the country via a large air, rail and road network. It has well connection with almost all the major domestic air routes. The airlines operating flights to Indore include Indian Airlines, Jet Airways, JetLite and Kingfisher Airlines. The airport provides free wireless internet connectivity using Wi-Fi. Besides, an international airport has also been proposed for consideration. Commuting facilities within the city of Indore is an easy mode with the international admiration for AICTSL transport services that has been a model for the major Indian metro cities. Far away from the bustling of metro life, calm & contented life style add to Indore as an ideal destination for any career aspirant who embarks for a pursuit of knowledge.

CHAIRMAN’S MESSAGE Dear Students, After the success of our three campuses in Lucknow, Noida and Jaipur we are happy to announce the launch of our new campus at Indore. At Jaipuria, we are committed to continuously upgrade and upscale our education endeavors. As India walks in tandem with global partners, the need to keep up with latest management practices and technologies is imperative. In this global age, the ability to gather, sort and understand information is fast becoming the most sustainable competitive advantage for any organization. Information technology can no longer be viewed as a separate subject in management education. Rather it pervades every aspect of the organization.

SHARAD JAIPURIA Chairperson Jaipuria Institute of Management (JIM)

At Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore, we are trying to create a reorientation in management education to keep up with the changing needs of industry. Digital based business management learning is integrated into the entire learning curriculum. Our faculty and their interactive teaching methods, curriculum and infrastructure are benchmarked not only against the best B-school in India, but also cater to the digital age. At Jaipuria, we are committed and focused on creating business leaders, who are creative, critical thinkers and can respond to new situations and challenge swiftly. We invite you to be a part of our innovatively designed PGDM programme and share the Jaipuria Learning experience.



PGP CHAIRPERSON’S MESSAGE The Indian economy is fast changing and is poised for exciting future as we embark on a rapid economic growth over the next 20-25 years. India has become home to many multi-national brands and will need managers who can lead the country towards the path of development. And you, young minds are the fortunate ones to be in the right place at the right time. We at JIM Indore are dedicated to change, through our flagship Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), young minds into budding managers. PGDM is a comprehensive two-year programme. In the first year you will be imparted fundamental knowledge of all the foundation courses of management including digital business management practices. In the second year you have wide range of concentrations to choose from different areas. As per your career goal you can select your courses to concentrate on functional areas such as IT, Operations, Marketing, Finance, HR, or choose to be a generalist by balancing courses across different concentrations. ROMI SAINY Chair, PGP

Our student exchange programme provides much required global exposure. We have a tie up with 5 universities across the globe from USA, UK, Finland, Taiwan and Thailand for student exchanges. At JIM-I we believe in overall personality development of our students. We organize various events and programs which allow students to showcase their talents at various platforms. The student club is a regular feature of the institute. The Institute has state of the art academic resources, technology innovation cell, and sports facilities within the campus away from the crowded atmosphere of the city. If you want to be part of this exhilarating voyage of transformation by making a significant contribution in the field of digital management, you are welcome to the Post Graduate Diploma in Management at JIM-I.



DIRECTOR’SMESSAGE JIM-Indore offers PGDM with a fresh perspective in management education relevant to the digital work environment in its newly constructed campus situated in the picturesque location near Indore, fully equipped with modern amenities and digital based business learning framework. The curriculum has been designed to groom you for the fast growing careers in organisations of new economy with digi-tech management capabilities. PGDM at JIM –I has introduced a number of pedagogical innovations to keep your educational pursuit full of challenges and excitement.


Firstly, you will be able to use large number of digital resources to enrich your role as a manager. It will help you create a new set of values for organisations as well as perform your role more effectively with higher career growth opportunities. Secondly, you will be among the few to have mastered these new sets of skill to study and analyse net-savvy consumers’ mindset and identify new ways to serve customers’ unmet needs. Thirdly, you will learn concepts and strategies most sought by corporate in a consumer centric paradigm such as the process of co-creation leading to new product development, developing new outsourcing opportunities and other new business formats and models. These new business concepts are soon going to change the landscape of the way the businesses are being driven. As the curriculum has a special focus on business and management in digital environment, it would facilitate exposure and grooming into ‘e’ based practices such as ‘e’ consumer insights, relationship through social media interactions, ‘e’ research, ‘e’ procurement and supply chain management and value creation through ERP, marketing with ‘e’ commerce and so on. There are very few institutions that have brought such elaborate inclusion of management practices with ’e’ based practices. A number of other learning opportunities would help you transform and challenge age old assumptions about people and systems. PGDM at JIM-I provides the opportunity to work on development projects through the winter immersion and also act as a mentor to young enterprises to the next level. This learning will not only build your self confidence but also instil a sense of achievement at a much younger age. We are sure that you will find JIM –I as an institution – its culture and educational values and new pedagogical tools fulfilling your dream and meeting your aspirations and enriched with new ideas in digital economy. This will certainly provide you an edge over other Bschools. We are committed to select the best talent of the country with diverse educational and cultural background. If you could make it to JIM–I, for the Academic year 2010-12, we are committed to provide you with a memorable experience and education.
