The Jaipuria Institute of Management Lucknow Offers Skills for Life
The think-tank at Jaipuria Lucknow knows that there are many educational institutes in the country offering MBA and PGDM programmes. With so many options, it can be difficult to choose the right one. Jaipuria Lucknow, however, differentiates itself from the pack by being extremely aware of what constitutes a good managerial education.
Focusing not only on delivering an effective curriculum, we instill the values of a positive attitude, team spirit and adaptation to change. Rather than offering courses that only provide tools and techniques, Jaipuria Lucknow is concerned more about forming a managerial mindset. We welcome outstanding young individuals for this intensive programme.

Industrial tour to Tata Motors for Jaipuria Lucknow students
Students of Jaipuria Lucknow visited the Tata Motors Plant at Chinhat, Lucknow, for the 7th consecutive year as a part of their industrial interface programme. To help match their in-class learning with on-ground realities, the future managers from Jaipuria Lucknow were shown all the action in the Chinhat plant of Tata Motors. These included production plans for the day, stock and raw materials storage and movement, inventory control and supply chain management. The young B-school students were also shown Tata Motors’ methodology of lean production, i.e. procurement of raw materials in small lots from nearby vendors.
“As an HR student, for me the most interesting part of the visit was talking to HR executives of the Chinhat Plant about the challenges of labour allocation at various work stations, issues-resolution in the gigantic plant, best manufacturing practices and safety measures adopted during the production run,” says Harsha Mishra, a second year student.
Over the years, the bond between the Chinhat Plant of Tata Motors and Jaipuria Lucknow has grown stronger, with senior and top management officials like Mr. Tribhuvan Kumar, AGM, Mr. C. V. Singh, Executive Vice President (Operations), and Mr. Alok Saxena, Plant in-charge, Lucknow, regularly visiting the Jaipuria Lucknow campus to interact with students.
From a class in HR to Head-HR… a winning career
A graduate in Psychology and Masters in Public Administration, Anshumal joined the first batch of Jaipuria Lucknow way back in 1995.
“Of the three jobs I was offered on campus at Jaipuria Lucknow, Sona Koyo, the auto component manufacturer, was not my top-priority. My teachers at Jaipuria, Lucknow made me realise that in a compact organisation like Sona Koyo, I was less likely to get lost, and grow faster.”
“I have worked across various industries. I started out with Manufacturing; managing labour work-force and getting an idea of industrial relations that gave me a distinct edge. Over the years I’ve managed HR in the media, with Business Standard; in hospitality as AVP, HR with the Oberoi group, and in banking, with the Citigroup, before moving to IT county.”
