AN UNPARALLELED LEGACY
What started with baby steps in 1981, NMIMS has today emerged as a globally reputed university. Always socially conscious, the Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal (SVKM) made the decision to cater to the rising demand of management institutes in the country. This led to the birth of the Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS). It began humbly by offering a two-year full-time master’s programme in management studies with 4 full time faculty, 3162 books and an intake of 40 students above Bhaidas Hall, Vile Parle (West), Mumbai.
EVOLUTION AND GROWTH
From its temporary location at Bhaidas auditorium, NMIMS moved to a large complex of over 5,50,000 sq feet where it stands today as a landmark in the heart of Mumbai at Vile Parle, an affluent suburb of the city.
Built on this inspiring legacy, today, NMIMS stands proud as a Deemed to be University offering multiple disciplines across multiple campuses. What started as an institute in a small building has caught the attention of the world, thanks to their 17 specialized schools. More than 17000 students and about 750 full-time faculty members, 10 faculty members with Fulbright Scholarship and Humboldt International Scholarship for post-doctoral researchers are part of India's most sought after academic community. The consistent academic quality, research focus, faculty from top national and global institutes and strong industry linkages at NMIMS have placed it amongst the nation's prime centers of educational excellence and research today.
Keeping pace with the ever-evolving education scenario and to meet international standards, NMIMS has taken major initiatives in terms of programs, curriculum development, international linkages, placements and students’ development. It has transformed into a globalized centre of learning, providing its students a balanced exposure to research, academics and practical aspects of the industry.
DIVERSITY AND INNOVATION
The meteoric growth of NMIMS is reflected in our core belief—that learning is most fruitful when knowledge and expertise of individuals from various disciplines and diverse backgrounds are shared. Diversity has always been the mainstay of the University as it provides a cutting edge to professional education.
Innovation is the key to progress in the modern world, and our pursuit of excellence, has led to constant upgrade and adding newer areas of education and research to make our programs more relevant. Harboring a sense of openness, participation and fairness has helped NMIMS build a culture that is conducive to learning and continuous growth.
CREATING FUTURE LEADERS
We believe in equipping students with the knowledge and skills in their chosen streams, inculcate values, identify hidden talents, and provide opportunities for students to realize their full potential. We believe in nurturing a scientific spirit of inquiry among our students, and by providing value-based education, mould them into leaders and responsible citizens, who will go on to play the role of changemakers in society.
