Copy paste shame for JBIMS MSc finance.
Unfortunate for the college at the level of JBIMS, almost 50% of the paper ie around 50 questions out of 100 were copy pasted from last year paper, reported by Cetking students who have seen the last year paper.
We cannot directly blame the jbims management as they normally outsource the paper to third party for conducting exam and gdpi process.
Cetking will definitely take up the matter with the management at JBIMS. Students are also requested to call email jbims about this issue. so that they are aware of the glaring mistake.
Possible Course of action.
1. Highly unlikely but there is possibility that exam might be conducted again but due to already delayed process it won’t be feasible.
2. Reduce weightage of written test so that the impact can be reduced.
3. Scrap the written test scores and only take admission on the basis of GDPI.
4. Looking at the tradition of government colleges, they might just turn a blind eye to the issue and let the process carry on.
will keep you posted about new updates.

Case studies is different from GD.. everyone is going to fight and argue like a GD as most of the students forget that it’s a case study discussion not generic group discussion. You should know and master all 4 types of cases.

All about JBIMS MSc finance program
Faking news: JBIMS to discontinue MSc finance program – 01 march 2016
This article is written to stop rumours spreading on social media about jbims stopping msc finance program. Stay calm it’s a fake news jbims will continue its rookie msc finance program. Admission process is always late and quick.
It not getting discontinued, infact now it has seasoned into a great program if you have interested in finance. Excellent summer placements is a testimonial for that.
It’s not clear yet if they will be taking their own exam or will accept cat or cet scores. Our students in the college suggested that they might conduct their own exam in the month of may but notification will come in early may only.
So cetking guess:
1. Own exam 3rd week of may followed by gdpi.
2. Accepting cet cat scores with cutoff of 90 or 95%ile profile based calls for gdpi
Give it couple of more years this program will overtake mba finance as mba finance students are hardly taught finance. In mba first 2 sem are common and students study core finance only in the 3rd sem however at mba finance with curriculum like CFA is talking finance from day 1.
JBIMS MSc Finance cut off
Most probably JBIMS MSc finance will be conducting their own exam which contains written test, GD, Personal Interview and Written ability test. Last year JBIMS took CET and CAT scores so following table will help in knowing the weight age of each section.

MBA Finance Vs MSc Finance
Many people who want to proceed to graduate studies related to business contemplate whether to get a Master of Finance Versus MBA degree. Choosing which of these programs best suits them can be challenging because both programs offer intensive study and high-paying career opportunities in the future. Both degrees can prepare students to handle positions at the administrative level in business and finance industries.
The major difference between these programs is that the MBA equips students with broader skills and knowledge in business and helps graduates apply them in many different areas. On the other hand, Master of Finance programs are more finance-specific. The individual’s career goals should determine which program to choose.
Details About Master of Finance Versus MBA Degree Programs
MBA programs offer courses like economics, accounting, statistics, organizational processes and communications. Meanwhile, the Master of Finance puts emphasis on accounting and management. Top ranking schools that offer MBA programs are Harvard University and Stanford University. Recently, more universities have begun to offer Master of Finance programs. In fact, MIT has already sent some of their graduates to major companies like Bank of America and J.P. Morgan Chase. Ohio State University also offers a great Master of Finance program.

India’s first MSc Finance
In a first-of-its-kind course in the country, the University of Mumbai launched the Master of Science (MSc) in Finance on Monday.
The course, which is the brainchild of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, will be offered at the Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS), Churchgate from this academic year itself.
According to University officials present at the launch, the course will be of international standards as the course content and curriculum has been designed after taking references from the syllabus of London School of Economics, University of Florida and a few other institutes in France.
The idea, originally mooted by the PM in 2011, is a part of the University Grants Commission (UGC) and Central government initiative to make Mumbai an international finance centre.
The University had first received a proposal letter from the UGC in September 2011, which was placed and approved by the academic council thereafter. Identifying the institute to carry out the market survey, research and finally conduct the course, however, took some time. “Faculty members of JBIMS and industry experts conducted a market survey and designed the curriculum. The course will initially be offered only at JBIMS and student intake will be limited to 30 candidates who will be enrolled after an entrance test,” said an MU spokesperson. “We are aiming at producing finance professionals having internationally benchmarked skills and capabilities in financial risk management, asset management, banking and non-banking financial institutions management and financial regulations etc,” said Dr Naresh Chandra, pro vice-chancellor of MU.
Kavita Laghate, in-charge director of JBIMS said, “The course has been designed considering the market needs. Hence, we are receiving huge finance industry participation in conducting the course.”
Mumbai University MSc
Mumbai University (MU) is set to introduce MSc in Finance, a course it claims will be the first of its kind in the country. The course will be officially launched Monday at Jamnalal Bajaj Institute of Management Studies (JBIMS), Churchgate.
The decision is part of the UGC and central government initiative to make Mumbai an international finance centre. “Several institutes in the UK and US offer the course. It will be a Master’s degree and will be designed to prepare graduates for careers in financial analysis, investment management and corporate finance. The course will initially be offered only at JBIMS,” said a senior MU official. “The course is called Master in Finance (M.Fin) or Master of Science in Finance (MSc in Finance). More details will be announced Monday,” said the official.
