The greater part of the running of the programmes is governed by student committees. This is the best hands-on way to learn about administration – the ‘A’ in the MBA.
Under the ADMAP (Assessment & Development of Managerial & Administrative Potential)
programme, there are around 20 student committees working in different areas of Institute administration.
SPJIMR students are a part of a series of events/ competitions in the two-year programme. Throughout the year students organise events and represent SPJIMR in many competitions. Some of the main events include, but are not restricted to, the following
GASP (Guild of actors at SPJIMR) is an embodiment of the will and determination of participants amidst the rigours of a B-School. Founded by Anupam Joshi and his team in 2003, GASP has successfully produced plays every year. It is a voluntary, non-classroom initiative of the PGDM students that gives them the opportunity to create their own production.
OJAS - The event is about celebration of the OJAS power that lies in everyone, and manifests itself in forms like diligence, creativity and intellect. This is the annual management and cultural fest of SPJIMR.
The word ‘OJAS' originates from the Vedas – a blend of eclectic elements which gives birth to an everlasting spring of vitality, vibrancy & fortitude.
SPrint is SPJIMR’s annual National sports festival. It is one of the biggest B-school sporting extravaganzas in India.
Lock, Stock and Trade is a student led event which gets together luminaries from the new venture committee and budding entrepreneurs from B-schools across the country.

From year to year the students form vibrant clubs. Some of the them are:
SPeak–The public speaking club of SPJIMR is aimed at helping students with all skill levels to practice and improve their communication skills and express themselves in a friendly and supportive ambience. Students not only gain confidence in public speaking, they also understand their blind spots through a friendly feedback system. The club organizes both formal speaking events such as debates and extempore as well as informal, walk-in events where students express themselves on any topic of choice. The club also organizes an annual debate competition called Trial by Rebuttal where students and faculty team up to compete for exciting prizes. This year, the launch event for SPeak was graced by Indian film director, writer, and producer Mr. Anurag Basu.
