JBIMS Mumbai MMS Admission 2020 is delayed now nor the institute has cared to post the information related to admission on its website. However, this year there is no confusion about the JBIMS admission process as the institute continues with its Autonomous Status and will offer 85% seats to Maharashtra State Candidates and 15% seats to All India category candidates.

JBIMS Mumbai will participate in DTE CAP 2020 to be conducted by CET CELL in the month of July 2020. The registration process for the Centralized Admission Process (CAP) 2020 conducted by Directorate of Technical Education (DTE) Maharashtra is to begin in the first week of June 2020 after the Corona Virus Lockdown 4.0 ends.

JBIMS: Still keeping its Admission Process Secret
Once bitten, twice shy - Jamna Lal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS) Mumbai, has refrained from announcing its admission policy and process for MMS 2020-22 batch as last year the institute faced the brunt of legal issues till the reprieve was received from Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in restoring its Autonomous status and finalizing admission to its MMS Programme. All this delayed the academic session and now due to COVID-19 pandemic, the academic session and admission process both are delayed again.

Thousands of the candidates have been raising query about the JBIMS admission process and whether there was any move by the JBIMS to conduct its own admission process, however JBIMS will offer admission through DTE CAP 2020.

Accordingly, Admission at Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies, University Mumbai for two years Masters in Management Studies (MMS) Programme will be done through Centralised Admission Process (CAP) of Directorate of Technical Education (DTE), Government of Maharashtra.

MMS is the flagship course of Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS), conducted as a university department of University of Mumbai. It is a two year full time post graduate degree course in management. Started as early as 1965, the course has been modified continually and appropriately to suit the contemporary corporate world needs and has been able to nurture prominent leaders of the same.
