Bridging the Gap

NMIMS has set a benchmark when it comes to industry and academia integration by being among the first institutions in the country to recognize its long term benefits. Building a strong relationship with the corporate world has always been a top priority at the institute. The students benefit immensely with this kind of approach as they are aware about the latest developments which makes it easier for them to adapt to tough and challenging situations with ease.


Apart from creating future leaders through its management course, NMIMS also offers custom made programs for executives, senior managers and entrepreneurs to help reinvent themselves to face the challenges of the ever-changing economy. This helps them take a quantum leap in their careers and emerge as true leaders, who can stand up to the constantly changing business scenario. Thousands of executives have benefitted from this unique program over the years.

The programs are classified on the basis of duration and delivery mode. They are either delivered on campus or off campus. The duration of the program ranges between a few days to a full three years.


Prominent people from the industry are invited as speakers to interact with the UG and PG students on the current scenario every week.

We have a collaboration with more than 100 pharmaceutical companies for internship and research projects. The department receives regular funding from government agencies such as Department of Biotechnology, National Medicinal Plant Board (Department of Ayush), Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), besides through consultancy for private companies.

Post graduate students get hands on experience during internship and by working on research projects with leading organisations like

  • Alembic Pharmaceuticals Ltd
  • GlaxoSmithKline
  • MSD Hilleman Laboratories
  • Smith & Nephew
  • Charak Pharma Pvt Ltd
  • Wockhardt Ltd
  • Sundyota Numandis
  • Ipca Laboratories Ltd
  • Cadila Pharmaceuticals Limited
  • Glenmark Pharmaceutical Ltd
  • MSD
  • Micro Labs Ltd
  • Jubilant Life sciences Ltd
  • Carestream
  • Sun Pharma
  • Cipla
  • Novartis India Ltd


Our commerce students stand to benefit from NMIMS’ aim of creating thorough work professionals who have their pulse on the ever-evolving economy and corporate environment.

Apart from the faculty, who belong to the industry, we also invite executives and prominent personalities in business and society for guest lectures to enlighten the students on varied topics of current interest. Students also get a chance to interact with the visiting faculty on a one on one basis. We believe such exposure is certainly an added advantage for the placement and recruitment of students in various industries.


Carrying on with the goal of establishing student-industry interface, it is a constant endeavour to bring students face-to-face with the corporate leaders of the engineering industry.

This has seen distinguished personalities like Mr. Yatrik Vin, Vice President, NSE, Mr. S. Anantha Sayana, Head Corporate IT, L&T Ltd., Mr. Nalin Mehta, Vice President, Mahindra-Renault, Mr. Nandkumar Saravade, Director, NASSCOM, Mr. S. V. Goyal, Sr. Vice President, Reliance Industries visit the campus and interact with the students over presentations and discussions.


School of Science has tied up with MNCs for setting up exclusive research programs for upgradation of their R&D staff. These programmes will be held during weekends (course work) at the School of Science in Mumbai whereas the research work leading to thesis will be carried out at the R&D laboratories of MNCs under supervision of research committee comprising experts from the School of Science as well as the concerned industry.

Moreover, the school plans to undertake R&D projects to support the research work undertaken by the industrial houses. The focus is on chemical and pharmaceutical industries.
