Part time management programme admission open at JBIMS

Hello Friends,

In my various previous blog post, I have mentioned that how one should select a distance/ part time MBA and always advised to have an executive MBA with minimum 2 years or more duration and with compulsory lectures.

Here is the admission announcement from Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies for its part time management programmes.

For syllabus, please visit following blog post

Courses offered:
It offers following courses which are equivalent to MBA
MMM (Master of Marketing Management = MBA (Marketing)

MIM (Master of Information Management = MBA (IT/ System)

MHRDM (Master of Human Resources Development= MBA HRM)

MFM (Master of Financial Management= MBA Finance)

JBIMS is nation's tier 1 Management institutes and are at par with IIMs.

Few clarifications

  1. Neither JBIMS nor any other institute offers placements for part time MBA.
  2. You will never get equal preference to a full time MBA holder from JBIMS however, the brand JBIMS will definitely help. Since it is a part time programme, it will be taught by the same professors who teach the full time students. 
  3. This is a part time programme and equally rigorous as a full time MBA


  1. Compulsory lectures , evening 6.30 PM to 9.30 PM
  2. Open only for graduates (no percentage barrier) with minimum 2 years supervisory / corporate work experience.
  3. Admission through entrance test and GD/ PI

Last date for accepting the application – 30th  November, 2013. 

Clarification about experience certificate:

Note:- This certificate must be signed by the authority in 

the organization on their letter head along with the stamp 
and date and designation clearly mentioned. The Institute 
may verify the same.

Rs. 51000 per annum so for 3 years= 153,000 + exam fee and other required expenses.

Process and other details
Admission to this course is done at the institute level through a 2 step selection process (starting October every year)
·         Common Entrance Test (MH-CET)

CET is a multiple-choice objective test evaluating the aptitude of the student in various areas like verbal ability, quantitative aptitude, logic, visual reasoning, reading comprehension and data interpretation.
Test is followed by a GD round after which the candidate is finally selected.

Shall you have any query, please fell free to post it here.


  1. This article clears everything and leaves no doubts in mind. So, thank you so much!

    Just few questions are quarrelling in mind, I'd be very thankful if you advice me.

    First of all, I'm very very late to prepare for admission entrance test though I've recently started. And, I'm giving my fully best. It's really dumb question to ask but I'm extremely worried about it. So, please advice me :-)

    What is it like appearing in admission test without or with little little preparations?

    One more question! Sorry.

    What are required documents for age and caste proof?
    Please help me. And thanks a lot for this valuable information.

    1. First of all,
      it is not as tough as CAT exam and competition is also low. So you need not to worry, focus on the syllabus
      Second, selection is also based on GD/ PI so do not worry, you will make it.

    2. Age proof, it can be determined through your board certificate or birth certificate or through TC
      For caste, you have to produce caste certificate issued by Tahsildar and validated by DIVISIONAL CASTE CERTIFICATE SCRUTINY COMMITTEE
      please refer

    3. Hi Govind, thanks for this information. One clarification on the work experience letter: is it necessary to submit an experience letter in the format given above only? Or are they ready to take it in any other format? My ex-company was US based and has a "termination letter" format where it's not really mentioned. If I were to provide hiring letter and termination letter would they accept it?

    4. Hi,
      The experience certificate is indicative if your employer mention duration of your work and designation, it may be accepted.

    5. Hi,
      Need to know about attendance.
      How strict is institute about attendance.
      Managing for 5 days in a week will be a difficult task

      can you advice on same

    6. It will be stricter
      If you cannot attend, opt distance learning MBA from any of the following
      Bharti Vidyapeeth
      University of Madras
      Pondicherry University

    7. hi govind,

      one more question....
      for the people who are doing job, for them it becomes difficult to attend lectures in the weekdays. And its very comfortable to attend in the weekends. so is it compulsory for the part time mba to attend classes in the weekdays. can you please suggest on the same...

    8. Yes, minimum 75% attendance is mandatory

  2. I hold a Bachelor's Distance Degree from Annamalai University.
    Does that make me ineligible for the part time course?

  3. Hii
    Just wanted to know whether there is placement for part time mba?

    1. No, part time MBA meant for working people only.

  4. Hey Nice article!! Could you put more light on the criteria to " Have a minimum of 2 years of experience (supervisor or executive level)." What does Supervisor or executive represent? Thanks

    1. Sorry for late reply. That they have worded, ideally it means you should be handling team but hardly anybody check that
