Prof. Kalyani Parmal is a teacher as well as a student of Finance!
A youthful and vibrant figure, Prof. Parmal is one of the youngest teachers on the Jaipuria Jaipur campus, with just about two-and-half years of teaching experience. A natural researcher and academic, Prof. Parmal is in the last leg of two immensely challenging educational qualifications – a PhD as well as CA. This is can be very stressful – unless, of course, you are absolutely passionate about Finance.
“Financial Management is one of my favourite teaching areas. I love to shoulder the responsibility of making students understand the need and importance of Finance, gradually making them comfortable with the subject to the extent that they start loving it. It gives me immense satisfaction when my students start playing with numbers and display great confidence with the subject.”
An MS (Finance) and a CFA, Prof. Kalyani Parmal’s classes are always abuzz with activities like debates, group presentations, case analyses, or even quizzes. Students at Jaipuria Institute of Management carry the opinion that Prof. Parmal’s teaching method strengthens the weak, and encourages students to be up-to-date in financial matters.
“Workshops and seminars are part and parcel of the Jaipuria Institute of Management culture,” emphasises Prof. Parmal. “Organising the unique ‘One Day MBA’ programme has been by far the most interesting experience for me. All these interactions bring ‘straight-from-the-horse’s-mouth’ knowledge on how industry operates.”
Often described as a bundle of energy by her fellow faculty members at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Prof. Parmal enjoys exploring the financial aspects of different topics and domains. She defines Jaipuria Institute of Management as “wonderful, with a fantastic work culture”.Read more

Jaipuria’s IMP – Chisel teams carve out some glowing reports.
Jaipuria Institute of Management students participating in the Industry Mentorship Program (IMP – Chisel) have carved out an excellent name for themselves among employers.
Under the IMP – Chisel program, students interact directly with industry, working on live projects for about 15 days per trimester along with peer, industry and faculty mentors.
This direct hands-on experience in industry allows students to put their classroom learning to the test with practical experience, helping turn them into management professionals.
Four businesses which recently took on Jaipuria students under the IMP – Chisel program had nothing but good to say about the experience.
Sayaji Hotels Limited, which operates a restaurant called Kebabsville, asked students to tackle the problem it faced with customer wait times.
Kebabsville has a seating capacity of around 200, but during weekends the traffic increases greatly and because seating can’t be increased due to space constraints, the average waiting period for customers grows.Read more

I’ve already participated in mega-events like Encore, Big Data, Marketing Wizard and Social Media Conclave held within the college campus. Also, as the IT coordinator, I’ve had the opportunity to conduct various quizzes and competitions. Ofcourse, Encore was special since I was the Head IT coordinator for this event.”
Arijit’s family is located in Kolkata. While his father works with the Bank of India, he has an elder brother who is the HR manager at PwC. Like many Bengalis, Arijit has a creative streak, especially when it comes to making sketches.

“Everyone from family to friends were in two minds about my decision to become a part of the first batch of a brand new b-school. But i knew it was not just any other new b-school; it was Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore!”

“The sheer number of companies coming over for on-campus placements at Jaipuria Institute of Management can leave one over-awed. I think it was the right mix of an Engineering background and a Marketing specialisation at Jaipuria Indore that helped me crack this job”, says a happyPratham.
“The credit for my placement goes entirely to my faculty and my peers at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore. Without their guidance, mentoring and cooperation, I don’t think I would’ve had the KSA (Knowledge, Skill and Attitude) to crack the Interview.”
His placement with a company of the stature of Polyplex has come as a hugeconfidence-booster for Pratham and a source of pride for his parents.
“I still remember how everyone from family to friends were in two minds about my decision to become a part of the first batch of a brand new B-school. I could understand their concern. After all, a postgraduation in Management is the final step in education for most of us. But I knew that it was not just any other new B-school that I was going to; it was Jaipuria Institute of Management! I had the confidence in my abilities as well as Jaipuria Institute of Management. I knew that we both would prove to the world that being new or unknown is not risky.”
Pratham Inani strongly believes that being from the first batch of Jaipuria Indore has brought him good luck. “Brand Jaipuria, like me, is Pratham. I’ve always had – and will always have – great trust in Brand Jaipuria.”Read more
