Our mission is to develop Lala Lajpatrai Institute of Management as an educational centre of international repute in management learning and innovation. We offer state-of-the-art management education, training, research and consultancy services, that would match the best of institutions in the world and fulfill the needs of the industry & society at large.
The Lala Lajpatrai Institute of Management offers the MMS - Master of Management Studies (Two years full time) course which is approved by the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) New Delhi. The Institute is affiliated to the University of Mumbai and Recognised by Government of Maharashtra.
The Institute seeks to develop professionals of competence and value and puts its synergic efforts through its faculty in achieving the same.
We, at LLIM adopt the stimulated organization approach in developing the students' career. To make different events and activities successful, students have to carve out a temporary but functional organisation, which requires them to constitute teams, allocate responsibilities and perform collectively in the same manner that executives do in any organization.
To ensure one hundred percent commitment from the students to this methodology, a continuous performance evaluation program is carried out. Weightage is given to class participation, presentations in addition to the case study method and semester end examination.
Our Quality policy is to offer value addition to students and executives by imparting contemporary management knowledge and practices. Appointing competent Faculty and staff and providing them with an appropriate environment for development. Our endeavour is to select the best talent in students for various programs through a transparent process.
Students are the assets of our Institute. We believe that it is our responsibility to mould them in such a way that they become the assets of the Industry. Our students are future managers. Keeping this in mind, the students of our Institute are trained right from day one to tackle any difficult situation that they are likely to face in the future. The Institute believes that a self learning attitude of the students is the key to success, rather than restricting their thoughts.This self learning attitude when coupled with theoretical knowledge, helps the students to think and come out with innovative solutions thereby achieving our objects of providing the industry with assets that would lead to their success. The following techniques are used to improve the skills of our students.
The case study method is used to apply theory to real-life situations and to solve the ongoing problems. Through this method, students learn to be in real situations, make decisions, deal with consequences of those decisions, and learn from the mistakes. Nothing can ever replace learning from experience. The Cases (which involve real life situations, although names may be changed) allow the students to "simulate" real life situations when they don't have the luxury of having years of experience. Management students use case studies and experimental exercises as "Laboratory" opportunities to understand and deal with various business settings.
The students not only learn theoretical aspects of a subject but also prepare and present projects enabling them to assimilate and gain more knowledge through self-learning. These projects are presented by them thereby allowing the knowledge to be shared. It also helps them improve their communication and presentation skills.
A student's performance is frequently evaluated through periodic and mid term tests that are conducted by the respective professors. Continuous evaluation helps students to overcome their weaknesses and build a strong foundation.
Apart from continuous evaluation, the students are also judged by the external faculty appointed by University of Mumbai, for evaluating University papers pertaining to general management & also in their area of specialization.
