chetanas about CIMR

The dream of our Founder President Late Shri. Madhukarrao D. Chaudhari, Chetana’s Institute of Management and Research (CIMR) became a reality in 1996. He believed in the principle of ‘education for all’ and so our multi-cultural outlook ensures an environment which stimulates learning and progress, with a strong emphasis placed on student participation in co-curricular activities that help them discover their latent talents. Chetana’s, keeping true to its name, keeps their mind and heart involved. Located in the heart of Mumbai, India’s commercial capital, CIMR offers a unique opportunity for students to understand and unlock their full potential. Close to the airport and railway station, medical facilities, banks and other amenities, we ensure your time at CIMR will be well spent in constantly pushing yourself to new heights. Over the years Chetana’s Institutes of Management Research have carved a niche as premier B-Schools in India and particularly Mumbai. So, it is easy to find lodging and hostel services around the campus. With our close proximity to Bandra Kurla Complex (second financial hub of Mumbai), our students stay connected to the industry and business. The Institute has also taken special care to remain accessible to differently-abled learners. After all, there should be no barriers to stop one’s drive to learn.

Our economy alone shall make India a super power on the Global Scenario. It is only natural that this accelerated phase of growth would result in investment in people and infrastructure. Therefore, all our initiatives are aimed at developing competent and committed managers who will be very much part of these efforts.

It gives me immense pleasure to welcome you all to Chetana’s Institute of Management & Research. With a vision to develop CIMR, as a niche business school nurturing professional excellence, we are committed to prepare students as successful & ethical business leaders to meet the current and future needs of the industry.

It has always been our endeavour to strengthen curricular and co-curricular activities and ensure high quality learning for our students. Over the last twenty-five years, Chetana’s Institute of Management & Research has covered several milestones in the field of management education. We believe in constantly engaging in dialogue with the corporate world to understand the current trends and accordingly design our Programmes to skill the budding managers.

Academic Programmes at CIMR are designed to cater to the increasingly complex skills required in today's globalised world. It has always been the endeavour of the Institute to strengthen the faculty team. We have a good mix of dynamic, seasoned academics and industry experienced faculty members, who work towards institution building and student mentoring. Distinguished speakers and guest faculty from academics, industry, business, government, and other sectors like sustainability development career planning, culture and international relations frequently visit us and interact with the students.

The Institute inspires its students to strive for thought leadership through several specialized areas and through the Personality Development Programme, in the form of corporate events and extracurricular activities. The Management Development Programme Division and Consulting contributes more effectively to the professional growth of managers and administrators.

In the era of globalisation, all - round exposure is mandatory for all. It is important for students to appreciate cultural differences and gain insights in academics and market driven value-added courses. The perfect blend of academics and beyond-classroom learning prepares our student towards industry readiness and develops socially responsible managers and entrepreneurs to meet the challenges of the business environment.
