S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research (SPJIMR) is a constituent business school of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. SPJIMR sits on a 45-acre campus in the western suburbs of Andheri in Mumbai. The Institute has an annual intake of some 700 students under various programmes. Its oldest programme is the two year Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM).


Inaugurated in 1981 by the then British Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher,[3] SPJIMR had modest beginnings as a small extension of the campus of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.[4] The institute was named after Sahu Shreyans Prasad Jain of the Sahu Jain family, who financed the institution in its early years. At the time of its establishment, SPJIMR was among the three business schools in Mumbai.[5] After the financing from the Sahu Jain family stopped, the institute disaffiliated itself from Bombay University to provide itself with more freedom in curriculum decision-making and pedagogy design.[6] SPJIMR is a part of the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan and operates out of its campus at Munshi Nagar, Dadabhai Road, Andheri West, Mumbai.
