Vice-Chancellor’s Message

I have great pleasure in welcoming the prospective management education aspirants to the Somaiya Vidyavihar University, Mumbai for their studies in the K J Somaiya Institute of Management.


The subject of Management as an academic and professional discipline has been undergoing revolutionary changes during the last few decades. We are in an era when knowledge is expanding at an unprecedented rate. During the last two years we have also seen how the technology has been transforming the landscape of education, particularly in the disciplines of management and business education.
