Established in 2010 as the second School of JGU, JGBS has a vision to evolve as an institution that prepares the business leaders of tomorrow with an awareness of social, environmental and ethical issues of global relevance. The values of JGBS are aligned with those of JGU in providing world-class education, interdisciplinary learning and global exposure to students.
JGBS has strong foundations as a B-School in its faculty strength and quality and the next few years would be critical in establishing it as a leader in the fast-changing B-school environment in India.
The collective wisdom and support of the International Advisory Board will help JGBS better serve the Indian and global business sectors in times of rapid and multi-dimensional change. Building stronger industry connect and providing experiential learning is critical for B-Schools around the world and the International Advisory Board will help JGBS immensely in moving in that direction.
