The greater part of the running of the programmes is governed by student committees. This is the best hands-on way to learn about administration – the ‘A’ in the MBA.
There are more than 20 committees working in different areas of institute administration.
SPJIMR students are a part of a series of events/ competitions in the two-year programme. Throughout the year students organise events and represent SPJIMR in many competitions. Some of the main events include, but are not restricted to, the following
GASP (Guild of actors at SPJIMR) is an embodiment of the will and determination of participants amidst the rigours of a B-School. Founded by Anupam Joshi and his team in 2003, GASP has successfully produced plays every year. It is a voluntary, non-classroom initiative of the PGDM students that gives them the opportunity to create their own production.
OJAS - The event is about celebration of the OJAS power that lies in everyone, and manifests itself in forms like diligence, creativity and intellect. This is the annual management and cultural fest of SPJIMR.
The word ‘OJAS' originates from the Vedas – a blend of eclectic elements which gives birth to an everlasting spring of vitality, vibrancy & fortitude.
SPrint is SPJIMR’s annual National sports festival. It is one of the biggest B-school sporting extravaganzas in India.
Lock, Stock and Trade is a student led event which gets together luminaries from the new venture committee and budding entrepreneurs from B-schools across the country.

SPJIMR is a one of the five founding institutions of NEN, the National Entrepreneurship Network. Our Centre for Entrepreneurship is committed to developing entrepreneurs. It has pioneered the Start Your Business Programme for aspiring / starting up entrepreneurs and the Grow Your Business Programme for growth stage entrepreneurs.
The Centre has developed a supporting network of mentors, investors, entrepreneurs and experts to nurture students from the idea to the venture creation stage. We regularly host events organised by entrepreneurship promoting networks like Start Up Saturday, NEN, Google Business, NASE and others.
From year to year the students form vibrant clubs. Some of the more enduring clubs include:
SPeak– A club that was formed to help create beyond-classroom practice opportunities for improving communication skills. With a friendly and supportive ambiance, the club invites students with all skill levels. Students not only gain confidence in public speaking, they also understand their blind spots through a friendly feedback system built in. The Club has an annual debate called 'Trial By Rebuttal' which has mixed teams of students and faculty debating for prizes. They also call great speakers from the industry e.g. Kirthiga Reddy (MD of FaceBook).
Institute Band – SPJIMR band 'SPunk' consists of 7 passionate musicians who collaboratively aim at creating music by leveraging the diversified musical know-how each member has to offer. The music encompasses various genres primarily focusing on Soft rock, Punk and Indian rock. Members of the club indulge in covering songs of popular bands across the globe and have also successfully managed to maintain a portfolio of their own compositions.
Playing in various fests across Mumbai, company band competitions like 'Deloitte Maverick' and intra-college events like 'Spandan', has helped us gain sufficient visibility to promote this art of desire in SPJIMR. It not only serves as a stress buster but also helps us keep the campus lively at all times.
