Principal Advisor's Message

Don Bosco Institute of Management and Research was launched on August 25, 2010. It is one more meaningful initiative taken by the Salesians of Don Bosco, Mumbai Province.

Management education is undergoing a metamorphosis. As  a  result of the  recent  economic meltdown,  there is a greater need  for  developing  Transformational  Leaders. As  we  traverse  into the 21st  Century,  the growing  awareness  of climate  warming  is  necessitating the  growth of  sustainable  industries  which  are  environment friendly. And  with  competition becoming  more  intense resulting in the commoditisation of  practically all goods and services, it is becoming  imperative that  companies  focus on innovation in order to  grow.

In this context the vision of DBIMR is:

To nurture for business, transformational leadership that is guided by values which sustain holistic growth.

As  a  part of  character  formation, the  students  are  made  aware of  the world of  underprivileged people. This is done with the hope of inculcating a socially aware mind set within the students. In 2011, DBIMR students  worked  in NGOs  and were responsible for  the  hosting of  the Dharavi Management Fest, a one of its kind festival,  which  applauded  the industries  in Dharavi  for achieving so much from so little. A case study was created out of this experience. In 2012, the students organized a Social Business Summit which involved industry sharing their perspectives on CSR, and Social Business. This enabled the students to get a feel of business as well as be sensitized to the problems in society.

To bridge the industry academia gap the students were exposed to various prominent guest lecturers from Industry. Besides their exposure to social businesses and summer internship, some of the students also worked on live projects for two months with organizations such as The Times of India, MIO Design, etc while they were studying. This ensured that students were exposed to various sectors and had upto 3 opportunities to explore for further employment.

To overcome  the students’ averseness to  reading,  book presentations  were  held  and  students regularly took part in unique, Acing and What’s On sessions to update themselves with the latest in current affairs and sharpen their business knowledge.

All this  did  not  detract  from the prime focus  of  arranging the best  faculty  for the students  and  insisting on  high  standards of  discipline  to  achieve  the objectives  set  for  the Institute.

At DBIMR, we are continuously looking for ways to make management education more relevant and meaningful. So  that  students  passing out  from DBIMR  will feel proud of  being  part of this  Institute and become the leaders  which are  necessary for this era.
