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.

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.

“The two years at Jaipuria Lucknow – the team work, combined projects, working odd hours to meet deadlines and working with a diverse set of people – actually prepared me to face the harsh advertising world.”
2nd January 2013 will forever be etched in the memory of Ankit Seth as the day when Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow delivered on its final promise. It was the day when Ankit earned a coveted placement as Management Trainee at Orient Fans – a legendary brand of the iconic Birla Group.

The Orient Fans selection process tested one on all fronts – aptitude, soft skills and marketing insights.”
The final interview round at Orient Fans was with the top managers of the Marketing, HR, and Operations departments. Ankit had to pull out all that he had learnt in his two years at Jaipuria Lucknow to get past this gruelling stage.
“I was lucky to have a mentor like Professor Masood Siddiqui, who guided me during this phase and made me target-oriented. I owe this success to my Marketing teachers, Professor Himanshu Mishra, Dr. Shalini Nath Tripathi and Dr. ShubenduParihar, who gave me theoretical insights into marketing and taught me the practical implementation too.”
During the initial phase of his Trainee Programme at Orient Fans, Ankit will be familiarised with the diversified product segments of the company, the dynamic channel structure with the stakeholders, and the key marketing and sales strategies being adopted by the company.
“Your placement interview is a sum total of your life, and you have to prepareyourself well for that moment.”

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.
