1. The best of locations in the country:
NMIMS School of Business Management was established in 1981 in the heart of India’s financial capital, Mumbai. Built in one of the most prime locations of the city, the college boasts of being one of the most important centres of education and excellence. Located in the hub of Vile Parle (W), with colleges like Mithibai right across the street, NMIMS is the academic abode of students from all across the country of varied age groups. With famous hangouts like Prithvi café and the Juhu beach round the corner, and flanked by the legendary Mr. Bachchan’s palatial houses, NMIMS definitely has one of the best locations to write home about! What makes things even better is that due to being situated in the financial capital of the country, NMIMS exposes its students to industry interactions and interfaces that give its students a competitive edge over the others.
2. The extravagant infrastructure:
If the college infrastructure were to be described in one word, it would be: LUXURIOUS! Located in the heart of the beautiful city of dreams, the NMIMS School of Business Management Mumbai campus stands tall, and happens to be an important landmark to reckon with.

3. All the delectable food around us:
At NMIMS, Food is our common ground. We take our meals very seriously! To put it simply, it’s an experience of sorts. The campus has a world-class canteen with a capacity of 600, and meal time here literally becomes a hog-athon festival of its own kind! From the fanciest pastas and pizzas to the desi daal and chawal, you name it, we have it! With vending machines on various floors that serve to you quick munchies when you’re on the go, NMIMS makes sure no one here goes unfed, and all taste buds are catered to! And that’s not all! If one chooses to take a quick break and head out, we have a chain of food stalls right outside college, that serve some of the most famous and delicious vada paos and dosas that you can ever find! So much so, that even Aussie cricket legend Brett Lee couldn’t resist the delectable temptation!

Mumbai is best known as the city of dreams, is also, quite ironically, that never sleeps. It teaches you important life lessons and makes you ready for the corporate hustles!
