The driving force behind this institute’s ever increasing success and its rapid growth towards the top is the placements it provides.

This combination of its placements and its location is enough to make the institute a world beater when it comes to placements.
For a business school to have such amazing placements and to have it year after year, it has to be doing something that other business schools don’t do. The journey often contains the truth that the end just does not reflect. For a placement powerhouse like K.J Somaiya Institute of Management, this secret lies not in its academic curriculum, but everything else it does beyond it.
As an institute, K.J Somaiya Institute of Management is everything that a student desired. It is extremely student driven where the students are encouraged to work alongside the faculty in various areas of administration like the placements, the admissions, public relations of the institute, and even analytics and consultancy among others. These experiences help then gain crucial experience in the field and helps them to increase their skills in both leadership and technicalities, providing a holistic development.
Apart from the experience that the students have a chance of gaining inside the institute, K.J Somaiya Institute of Management has worked very well on its international relations. There are various international affiliations that the college offers to its students along with programmes like International Immersion Programmes.
These programmes are aimed at maximizing the learning that a student can gain only throught experiments, experience, and research; which often fall beyond what just a single university offers.
These are the major reasons why the students of K.J Somaiya Institute of Management Mumbai have an edge over others when it comes to placements which is well reflected in the institute’s record of near 100 placements each year.
