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.

“Being a science student, accounting and finance were new to me. But the faculties, and my batch-mates at Jaipuria Lucknow, helped turn them into my strength.”
When Jayanti Jain, a Biotechnology graduate, joined Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow in 2010, she thought that she could probably fit only into an HR specialisation role.
“Accounting and Finance were new to me. But the faculty, the well-managed teaching pattern, and my batch-mates at Jaipuria Lucknow helped turn these subjects into my strength.”
Her summer internship with Union Bank of India in 2011 prepared her well for the placement season in Jaipuria Lucknow. She feels that during the placements, the extra classes at Jaipuria Lucknow also proved very helpful when it was time for the interviews.
“The interview panel of Oriental Bank of Commerce initially asked introductory questions regarding my family and educational background. But very soon, the interview turned into a discussion on my summer training project, which helped me get the placement.”
Jayanti believes that life in Jaipuria Lucknow has completely shaped her personality and her professional path. She fondly remembers Talaash – a fest that is more of a talent hunt among first-year students. At Jaipuria Lucknow she participated in numerous events, won the 2nd prize in badminton and as a member of the alumni committee of Jaipuria Lucknow, coordinated meetings of the various alumni chapters.Read more
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.
“Tough times don’t last… tough men do,” says Anurag Misra, Sr. AVP, SBI Life Insurance, alumni of the 1999 batch of Jaipuria Lucknow
After the global economic meltdown of 2007, professionals across the globe where happy with whatever rank and profile they were handed. During these challenging times not only did Anurag Misra thrive in SBI Life Insurance, but in a span of just five years, earned three back-to-back promotions. An alumnus of the 1999 batch of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow, Anurag Misra today sits pretty high up in the corporate hierarchy as Sr. AVP, heading Back Office Operations – Group Business.
“There are two things that I learnt at Jaipuria Lucknow that have always held me in good stead – how to be an effective team player, and how to make strategies to achieve time-bound objectives. So when in the initial part of my career I faced numerous challenges, I remained positive and did full justice to the assignments given to me.”
Anurag, incidentally, is the man behind the now-famous ‘Ladli’ scheme launched by Ms. Sheela Dikshit, the Chief Minister of Delhi, way back on the 7th of March 2008. The groundbreaking ‘Ladli’ scheme ensures special grants for girl child protection, marriage of orphan girls and daughters of poor widows, and pension for widows. Within a couple of months of executing this mammoth task, Anurag was promoted from Sr. Manager to Area Sales Manager on 12th May 2008… and he has never looked back.
“I rarely miss an alumni meet, and enjoy staying in touch with my colleagues, as well as other alumni. I do miss the wonderful two years spent with friends at Jaipuria Lucknow, and the amazing faculty members that we were fortunate enough to have.”
Anurag has been instrumental in generating business to the tune of a whopping 300 Crores in his five-and-a-half years with SBI Life Insurance.Read more
