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

Nowhere else will you find students appearing for the same interviews, helping each other out. Jaipuria Institute of Management has a truly extraordinary culture, Prachi Sahai
Prachi Sahai has cracked one of the most sought after profiles in the Indian job market, that of a Probationary Officer with Federal Bank.
“My grooming at Jaipuria Lucknow, has turned things around for me. There is much more to being at Jaipuria, Lucknow than just studies. I was part of the student activity group (SAG) which made me undertake so many challenging and exciting tasks. More so, I was the college MC for almost all events, and I guess I enjoyed it so much that I am going to miss it thoroughly. I was also involved in many other activities, like the annual fest, debate, extempore competition, etc. It’s not just a job, or a PGDM, which I am taking away with me; it’s the treasure of everyday grooming.”
Prachi’s on-campus placement process began with an online aptitude test comprising questions dealing with general knowledge, quantitative ability, verbal ability, logical reasoning and computer competence. This was followed by an online psychometric analysis for the job profile.The qualifiers were then tested through aGroup Discussion.
“My contribution to the discussion was not just in terms of my views, but also inmanaging group dynamics and leadership skills. After clearing the GD, we were called for the interview the following day.There were questions about my background, knowledge of the organisation and domain, and general awareness. The panel was particularly impressed by my answers on situation handling.”
Prachi credits the highlyqualified faculty of Jaipuriawith equipping her with in-depth knowledge of the banking sector.Read more
Demystifying the Indian consumer
Interview by Owais Khan
Held between the 14th and 16th of December 2012 at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow, the 7th International Conference on Interdependence, Integration and Co-Creation (IIC) turned out to be one of the most important business management events of the year in the country. Luminaries from across the globe were at Jaipuria Institute of Management,Lucknowto share their knowledge and thoughts on the issue of ‘Demystifying the Indian Consumer’.
Mr. Bhupesh Dinger, the COO and Director of Enrich Salons and Academy, was one of the most effective speakers at this event. A product of IIM Bangalore, Mr.Dinger has explored the length and breadth of consumer markets with organisations as varied as Omkar Realtors and Developers, to Reliance Retail and Reliance Webworld, in a career spanning 25 years. Mr. Dinger laid outevery aspect of the evolution of consumer behaviour in the last couple of decades.
“Reduced attention span, increased mobility and travelling, decreasing restrictions of time and geographicalspace and countless options have all ensured that customers today demand greaterservicing speed. As a marketer in the service sector,if you fail to deliver speed, you will lose you customer. Midnight sales start a couple of hours earlier at 10 at night. The market knows that the customer is free only during that span.”
Speaking about the choices available to customers, he reminded the students of Jaipuria Lucknow, how the photo film industry was wiped out almost overnight. “Ten years ago,companies like Kodak, Fuji and Konica were fighting tooth-and-nail for market share in the film-based camera market. Suddenly, the camera market changed; consumer photography started getting more inclinedtowards digital cameras. Anew set of competitions emerged and consumers had new choices.Out of nowhere,companies like Sony and HP – which are not traditional camera manufacturers – emerged as market leaders. They got their thrills for nearly a decade before becoming obsolete in a matter of months. For the last three years now, ‘cameras in mobile phones’ have outnumbered the sales of cameras.”
Mr. Dinger also explained how core banking has had a remarkable impact on consumer behaviour, andobserved that the online world is now moving offline in order to bring people online.
“For instance, ‘Shaadi.com’ knows that there is a significant population of parents who are not computer savvy. They are now setting up centres across India where the parent can come across and access services. Suddenly, the guy who was offline is now online by proxy.”
Mr. Bhupesh Dinger concluded on the note that the only way of holding on to your customer in a market overloaded with choices is ‘mass customisation’.Read more
