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.
Jaipuria doesn’t teach you how you can be better than others; it makes you better than yourself, Tuhin Sharma, 2012-14 Batch
Tuhin Sharma loves to initiate change and make things happen. It is perhaps for this reason that he was made the College Captain during his school days in Tagore Public School, Allahabad. Born and brought up in Allahabad, Tuhin did his B.Com from University of Allahabad before entering Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow.
“I always see myself a little more than useless because I believe the more you know, the more you realise how much you don’t know. So there is always scope to learn. This makes me accept change faster and better.”Read more
“I believe in the philosophy that the best teachers inspire their students. I try to work in this very manner at Jaipuria institute of management.”
Professor Ojha believes that being a teacher at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow has been a very encouraging and enriching experience. In his economics classes, he lays immense emphasis on the application of concepts in practical decision-making situations. He also builds scenarios around day-to-day life so that students are able to relate to them.
“I believe in the philosophy that the best teachers inspire their students. At Jaipuria Institute of Management, I create incentives to learning, and make students realise that active classroom participation is indispensable for them. If a concept or topic is particularly difficult, I start right from the basics, and confirm with quizzes whether it has been understood, before going to an advanced level.
Interestingly, most of Professor Ojha’s published research work concerns the economics of the rural space and agriculture in India. His papers have been published in prominent journals like IIML Case Series (2006-07), Economic and Political Weekly (April 2007), International Journal of Rural Management (2006), and in Metamorphosis (January-June 2007).
“Currently, I am researching whether the decrease in income inequality in society is only an ‘equity’ agenda, or whether it is also good for business in general. So far, my findings have been quite remarkable.”
Apart from his teaching and research responsibilities, Professor Ojha is the Chairperson of Students Affairs at Jaipuria Lucknow. He is also a part of various committees related to academic administration of Jaipuria Lucknow. For the last 5 years, Professor Ojha has also been looking after the logistics of various institute events like the IIC and the Annual Convocation of Jaipuria Lucknow.
Professor Ojha’s message to his students at Jaipuria Lucknow is, “Make the best use of the inputs you receive from Jaipuria Institute of Management to realise your potential to its fullest.”Read more
“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.
“This year, the placement season at Jaipuria Institute of Management really took off at the end of November 2012. Recruiters from brands like Luminous Power, Finlace, Orient Fans, and Polyplex Corporation Limited began making their presence felt. 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.”
Ankit believes that experiences ofco-ordinating a LIVE project for ‘Big Bazaar’ during internship,and aggressively managing sponsor ships for the annual events at Jaipuria Institute of Management Lucknow helped him develop a good understanding of the corporate world.
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.

There were quite a few offers, including one from Kanoria Chemicals. However Vinay, along with a couple of his colleagues from Jaipuria Lucknow, decided to play for bigger stakes.
