Leaders inspire others to leadership. We at JSB have taken up the challenging task of creating leaders not followers. The only thing that will enable us to do that is constant innovation. "Anything that works is obsolete" is the mantra at JSB. Business activities have always been the drivers of economic growth and in this context business leaders have always led from the front.
Jyotirmoy School of Business or JSB as we proudly call it, is the flagship of Jyotirmoy Knowledge Park. We deliberately chose Kolkata to locate ourselves in, as this city has always had an unparalleled intellectual legacy, which still boasts of producing some of the who's who of the world from India - Amartya Sen, Lakshmi Mittal. Amitabh Bachchan. Pranab Mukhenee, Vir Sanghvi all have some early connection with Kolkata and have found this city an effective spring board for furtherance of their careers.
The campus has been visualized on international lines in a serene location which shall inspire and enthuse budding managers and entrepreneurs. Its sprawling 22 acre surroundings are second only to the IIM-C. In the clutter of "me too" Business schools, this business school was envisioned with definite differentiators to offer. The campus is only one aspect of its' strengths. It has consistently focused on getting the best faculties from both academia and industry. Indian Expats and foreign professors are a part of the faculty team which also has an enviable collection of the best minds from the country.
The most daunting and arduous task for a new B school is to select good quality students who are capable of taking on the mantle of leadership for tomorrow's complex business world. JSB lays equal importance on Teaching, Training, Consulting, and Research.
Be the best you can be and be consistent at it, is what we aspire to.
With the key denominators in place, the journey of JSB is going to be worth watching. I welcome all serious students of business, and business gurus to come on board and be a part of this phenomenon.
