GJIMT – misguiding students

I was at GJIMT for about one year and found that it is misguiding students. The institute is run by Mr JS Bedi, who behaves as if he is the cat’s whiskers, and his daughter, Aneet, who spends her time in petty politics. The website says that it has faculty from IIMs and Panjab University; while I was there I could not find a single IIM graduate in the vicinity of the institute. Dr R P Gupta, who was a professor at PU, has since left. I also saw that the institute was publishing false placement figures. My experience was very bad, as JS Bedi and his daughter have no experience in running a management institute. In fact, Aneet had a problem when my book was published by Oxford University Press. It is hardly a wonder that despite it being quite old in the city, has no standing. It has no intellectual capital to boast about, and most of the faculty is less than 3 years old in the institute. Keep away!

  1. Gian Jyoti Institute of Management and Technology
    Industrial Area, Near Bassi Theatre, Sector 54, Phase-2, Mohali, Chandigarh 160002

    I worked at Gian Jyoti institute for a little over an year. It was not a very good experience.

    Some of the drawbacks:

    1. It is run like a private fiefdom. There is little emphasis on education and more on internal politics. I was amazed that the Dean of the Institute actually counted the number of cups of tea that were served.

    2. Teachers are not paid proper salaries. Most are exploited, and as a result, GJIMT has not been able to build knowledge capital despite years of existence.

    3. Instead of being open minded, the institute is parochial and does not encourage research. Mr JS bedi actually had a severe problem (jealousy I think) as my book was published with Oxford University Press!

    4. The institute website has false claims. The “highly experienced faculty” are all about a year old in the institute. I could not see any lecture series by IIM graduates as mentioned on the website, while I was there.

    5. The number of qualified teachers who have left in the past few years is phenomenal. Almost every month some teachers leave the institute.

    6. The only reason it gets students is that it is close to Chandigarh. Its counterpart in Punjab struggles for students.

    That is why I rate the institute poor indeed.
