Location & Infra:

It is located close to Vile Parle station which connects it well to the rest of Mumbai by means of railways. Although it can’t boast of a huge campus (actually just a building), but it has good and well equipped classrooms. There is hostel facility provided by SVKM, the parent body which runs the institute, but the hostel is not within the campus (it's not too far either). The girls hostel is very good but the boys hostel is very OK. It is not necessary to stay in the hostel. Only outstation students are eligible for hostel.

They are the pioneers in offering various sector specific courses. The faculty is good experienced one. The emphasis is laid on self-learning and a lot of research work from the corporate.
Crowd & Campus Life:
Majority of the crowd is from Mumbai. There is no campus as such so not much happens in case of sports or the various activities happening in the various institutes having hostels. The life is still great here because you get to stay in Mumbai. There are festivals which happen on the campus but they are of no comparison to other popular festivals. There isn’t anything to say about the culture at NMIMS, but that is not to worry about as it is compensated by the city life of Mumbai.
