The foundation stone of the institute building was laid at the hands of Late Honorable Shri. Rajiv Gandhi, Ex-Prime Minister of India on 18th October 1983, in the presence of Late Shri. Vasantdada Patil, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Late Maharaja Shri. Madhavrao Shinde then President of Maratha Mandir and Late Shri. Babasaheb Gawde, Founder Hon.

MM BGIMS fosters an environment of academic excellence and for over 26 years has gained reputation as a leading Management Institute offering premier Management Education. Our belief in creating a dynamic and free-thinking culture has enhanced the academic, personal and social participation of the students.
Quality management education is imparted with a perfect blend of theory and practical application. We have always focused on moving beyond the traditional case-study based pedagogy and providing more avenues for students to observe practical application of management concepts in real-time business environment. Our constant efforts to evolve and disrupt the norms have led to creating a group of more than 2000 management professionals who possess an all accepting thought process, analytical acumen and an empathetic outlook towards the society and the country as a whole.

Our central pillars on which the Institute’s culture and existence relies are:

Life Long Social Contributions

MM BGIMS provides opportunities for students to be aware of their role as a contributor to the well-being of the society through several events like Alert Mumbaikar, Thanks Giving Day, Save Water Day, Van Mahotsav, International Women’s Day, etc.

Progressive Skill Development

We realize that merely developing communication skills will not make great managers. Our constant endeavour is to motivate students to undertake additional training programs, organized in the institute, going beyond the set curriculum and to develop managerial and analytical skills that are more relevant to today’s business environment.

Coaching – Going beyond Mentoring

Our faculties play the role of a life-coach to our students, helping them overcome problems and develop themselves not only academically but on all fronts. Through our mentoring program we ensure that students and faculties build a lasting bond that extends beyond the confines of the institute building. This has also helped us build a robust alumni network. 

Enlightening Industry Interactions

MM BGIMS takes pride in being associated with some of the most eminent personalities from various industries and institutions, who regularly interact with our students and provide necessary insight into the functioning of businesses.

Our regular industrial visits provide students with an exposure to practical applications of the various theoretical concepts learnt in classrooms. Students have visited manufacturing facilities of major brands like Reliance, Siemens, Saint-Gobain, United Breweries, etc.

The emphasis here is to ensure holistic development of all students by preparing them for the various challenges and opportunities they will face when they start their respective careers.

Developing Research Aptitude

It is imperative for management professionals to have a sharp research acumen. To motivate students into conducting research, MM BGIMS conducts two annual research events:

MIMAMSA is a paper presentation competition where students Think, Explore & Present their ideas. A platform is given to students to write a research paper, which nourishes the intellect and analytical skills of the students, thereby training them to observe, analyze, interpret and derive solutions to specific managerial problems or situations.

MANTHAN is a National Conference where Students, Academicians/ Faculty members & Corporate Professional present their original work/paper relevant to the theme selected for that year. This event sees participation from academicians and industry professionals alike and provides a plethora of information for the students on current developments in the field of management and business administration.

Having Fun while Learning

MM BGIMS organizes an annual inter-collegiate festival, MAGMA. This event attracts students from all over Mumbai and its suburbs who participate in Management Games, Sports and Cultural activities with equal enthusiasm.

Moreover, students are constantly encouraged to showcase their talents in external events and college festivals. We are proud of their glorious achievements over the past several years.
