SVKM’s NMIMS Deemed-to-be University, one of the premier Universities of Higher Studies in India, has completed 31 years of its existence in the year 2012. NMIMS established in the year 1981 as Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, began its journey by offering a masters degree program in management studies, a course of the University of Mumbai with an intake of only 40 students and 4 full time faculty.

Today, NMIMS is one of the fastest growing and the top, private University in the country. It has undergone a tremendous transformation since its commencement. Today, it stands as a large imposing University with 7 specialized schools plus two off-Campus operations, with an intake of over 6000 students and over 200 full time faculty members. From its temporary location at Bhaidas Auditorium, NMIMS has moved to a large complex of over 40000 sq feet where it stands today as a landmark in Vile Parle, an affluent suburb of Mumbai.

Today, NMIMS has seven Schools, two Satellite Operations and two Off-Campus Centres.

The Seven Schools are:
■School of Business Management
■Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management & Engineering

NMIMS has embarked on a new path in tune with our Corporate Social Responsibility and are offering the programs of the University at the Off Campus Centre in the tribal area of Maharashtra i.e. Shirpur. Initially programs under the Mukesh Patel School of Technology Management & Engineering and School of Pharmacy & Technology Management are being offered.

The students are encouraged to undertake internship with companies. The focus at NMIMS is to develop a Complete Student, i.e. a combination of academic and co-curricular skills. We groom our students to face the challenges of the corporate world with a blend of social sensitivity.

A very important parameter of success for any B-School is its ability to offer corporate interface for its students, which enhances their practical knowledge to face the corporate world. NMIMS has built strong partnerships with the corporate world, providing training for staff, collaborating on research & development programs, consultancy assignments and corporate projects. NMIMS strives to build up industry-sponsored collaborative postgraduate programs, conducts workshops, seminars, and guest lectures for students to expose them to the realms of the corporate environment. Management Development Programs (MDPs) are an integral part of the University’s activities towards developing its interaction with the corporate world.

NMIMS has grown to this stature because it has dared to dream, but will never rest on laurels already achieved. With each passing day and each passing year, NMIMS plans for a better future. Geared towards dynamic growth in all fields, the University has bigger dreams for tomorrow.
