The Justice KS Hegde Institute of Management (JKSHIM) in Udupi, Karnataka was founded in the year 1998. It is named after Justice KS Hegde who was a stalwart for the local community as well as nationally during his lifetime. He studied Economics and later Law from the best places of academics back then, before embarking on a distinguished professional career. In 1954, he even represented India at the UN General Assembly. Later in life, he was elected to the Lok Sabha where he emerged as its Speaker.
Unlike several other institutes, this one has a single focus, which is management education. The MBA course is run here. For entry into the course, the candidate has to sit for some nationally accepted exam after finishing or during the final year of graduation. The exams could be between CAT, MAT, XAT, CMAT or ATMA. Post This the student has to appear for an interview and group discussion. This MBA programme is recognized by the AICTE (All India Council for Technical Education) and affiliated to the Vivesvaraya Technological University in Belagavi, Karnataka. The number of students here has grown four times since the year of foundation. The deserving and meritorious students are also provided with scholarships.
Different academic areas within the broad field of management education are available here. There is a lot of focus on rural and micro- level development. This is due to the philosophies of the founder as well as the location of the institute away from the biggest urban areas of the country or region. The JKSHIM works with several regional rural development centres within the state of Karnataka. Medical and dental services have been made possible as a result. Day care and rehabilitation centres have likewise been made possible. A specialty hospital has been created with the trust that handles the institute- NITTE. This is named after the town off Udupi where the JKSHIM is located in. A local publication by the name of Nitte Management Review is also released periodically.
Besides the MBA programme, industry focused short- term courses are also conducted. These come under the purview of the MDP (Management Development Programme). The JKSHIM has got accreditation from two bodies- NBA (National Board of Accreditation) and ACBSP (Accreditation Council of Business Schools and Programs). This helps in winning industry recognition for MDPs as well as winning consulting projects, which keep faculty busy year- long, such is the demand for the high quality of JKSHIM faculty. Some of the key consulting assignments the faculty has been involved is with companies such as – All cargo Logistics, Tata Trust, Corporation Bank, ICSSR, NABARD, IIBF and Syndicate Bank. In addition, faculty has also been involved with government bodies such as the – Karnataka State Agricultural Marketing Board, GOI Ministry of Finance, Udupi Zila Panchayath, Dakshin Kannada Zila Panchayath and the SKDRDP in Dharmasthala.
The JKSHIM also conducts some big events year- round. The prime purpose is to engage with the industry. There is an annual Nitte CEO Conclave. There is also an HR Conclave, as the understanding exists that a lot of recruitments as well as consulting assignments are sourced by the HR. A special event is held to cater to MSMEs. It is known as the MSME Conclave and Business Excellence Awards. Another is called the ETTIN. It is the official management fest of JKSHIM. The institute has its own YouTube channel titled JKSHIM Voices, where various recorded sessions and event highlights are uploaded. All this and much more has helped the institute get good ranks and ratings across platforms. The NAAC (National Assessments and Accreditation Council) for example has allotted the JKSHIM an A grade. The Careers 360 publication has provided an AA for JKSHIM’s MBA programme.
