Innovation in teaching, research and assessment characterizes the educational philosophy of NR BBA.

Students from Gujarat and neighboring states come to NR for the rich exposure that they receive during the course of their 3 year study at our college.

From the Director’s Desk

The business world today has become more dynamic than ever. There is a constant pressure to innovate and deliver, no matter what the circumstances. With this scenario in mind, we at NRBBA believe in being not simply another college offering a three-year degree, but an undergraduate B-school. We spare no effort in making our course a journey in the pursuit of excellence, by focusing on academics, industrial exposure, all-round growth and personal values. Over the years, with the constant support and encouragement of the GLS management, NRBBA has been able to earn repute as an institution striving towards the complete growth of students by putting in that extra mile, giving everything that extra thought, and always being there for our students.

Apart from academic rigor, our activities ensure that students are imbibed with leadership, entrepreneurial and managerial skills. One of our most distinguishing characteristics is our faculty team – highly experienced, profoundly committed and deeply concerned for every student who enters the college. On its part, the institute believes in drawing inspiration from the words of our Executive Vice President, Shri Sudhir Nanavati, “Train the trainers” and ensures that they get ample opportunities for their own development, through regular faculty development workshops, focus on research and continuous skills upgradation.

We are both proud of and humbled by the achievements of our students. While their outstanding academic results at all Gujarat University examinations assure us that our academic processes are going in the right direction, their admission to prestigious institutes as IIM, Nirma University, EDI, PDPU and IBS tell us that the rigorous efforts put into all-round development have paid off. The positive response of companies as IBM Daksh, ICICI Bank and SBI Life Insurance recruiting our students proves the employability and industry acceptance of our students is a great motivator. At the same time, we are humbled, because we know that we have ‘miles to go before we sleep’; and a lot of investment in the same direction, to achieve our vision of being one of the best undergraduate B-schools in India.

I welcome you to this website, to have a glimpse of who we are and what we do.

Students pass out, but their bond with their alma mater strengthens with time. In the last 16 years our students have moved out into the real world – some have pursued higher education at institutes of repute, some have gone into business, some have taken up academics and some have even gone into creative fields. We love having our past students interact with our current ones, as sharing of their experiences is immensely beneficial. Our alumni, too, always look forward to coming back on campus. NR is proud of its alumni and thanks them for their support.

Alumni Speak

Shivang Ganatra

(Class of 2011; Currently Student of IIM, Ranchi, Class of 2014)

NR BBA is an institute where you can look forward to your all round development. The faculty members here have a keen interest to instil the right attitude and values in you which will take you far in the corporate world. Moreover the peer learning at NR BBA adds on to the learning experience.

May it be debate, elocution, quizzing, creative writing, drama, dance, music, singing or simply the academic rigour that interests you, NR BBA is sure to provide ample opportunities to pursue them. And why only provide opportunities, the enthusiastic NR BBA fraternity will try to groom you in all possible ways so that you can hone your skills in your area of interest.

Whether it has been academics or cultural events, literary activities or social service endeavours NR BBA has given me exposure to all these fields. The only thing required of a student is the interest in a particular field and inquisitiveness to learn more about various things.

Hitesh Rangwani

(Class of 2012; Currently Chief Cashier, Bank of India)

NR BBA helped me in achieving many of my dreams. It is one of the best management institutes at the UG level that provides quality education, good infrastructure and ample opportunities for self development. Various events and activities such as case study competition, quiz competition etc sharpen the skills of students and give them a platform to present themselves. Over the period of three years, NR has become a second home to me. Major credit for that goes to all the faculty members whom I approached in my bad times and they supported and encouraged me to achieve my goal. Today if I m living a successful comfortable life it’s only because of the support that I received from professors and the Director of NR BBA. Those 3 years of graduation are unforgettable for me. I wish all the success to the NRites.

Bansi Ruparel

(Class of 2010; Currently Assistant Professor in Management, Bhavnagar University)

When I hear the name of NR, I feel nostalgic. There are a lot of memories that I cherish about NR. Whether it was about getting the Best Student Award, attending lectures or enjoying Culfest, NR has its own place in my heart. It has played a fundamental role in shaping my career. Today, when I have started working as an assistant professor at Bhavnagar University I realize how much efforts our professors at NR put in for our future. They have motivated us and made us strong enough to compete with others. I am extremely grateful to NR as it has given practical exposure while teaching basic theoretical concepts. I am so attached to NR and the campus that I decided to complete my post graduation from the same campus.

Ashish Nahata

(Class of 2013; Currently Management Trainee, Om Anand Exports, Mumbai)

‘Journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step'.

After completing high school studies, there are various questions on our mind - Which course? Which college? Which city?; At the same time, we experience a mixture of emotions - Excitement, anxiety, nervousness & what not, of becoming a part of the best college in the field that we choose for ourselves. College plays a vital role in shaping one's overall personality. N.R.I.B.A does that in its true sense. It is THAT single step which I took. Right from Peons to the Director, everyone is ever ready to lend a helping hand in every possible way. The Faculty at N.R.I.B.A is its biggest strength; knowledgeable, wise & humble. They understand every student individually & deal with them on their own level to instil confidence. Be it studies or co-curricular activities, everyone is supported whole heartedly to excel in whatever they do. You can approach them anytime regarding any concern be it personal or professional.

To all the freshers joining N.R.I.B.A;

'Believe yourself and you will be half way there'. Wishing you all a bright future for the journey called Life. :)

Dream. Believe. Achieve.

Harshil Mamnani

(Class of 2013)

The first thought that strikes me about NR is its faculty. They have a rich experience in their respective fields and make the subject matter interesting and easy to understand. They also play a role of mentor and provide valuable guidance.

At NR, emphasis is not only on academics. Students are encouraged to participate in various types of co-curricular and cultural events right up to the state level. Students are thus able to balance learning with fun. The campus gives you a perfect environment to study and enjoy your college days. The college has all the facilities like libraries, computer lab, reading room for the students.

To sum it up, with excellent faculty members and the facilities that college provides, NR BBA is a perfect college.

Sneh Desai

(Class of 2013; Current MBA student of Pandit Dindayal Petroleum University, Gandhinagar, Class of 2015 )

I still remember my first day at college. I was a student from Rajkot and was very nervous. I was awed by everything around me - right from students, professors, and atmosphere. And then we had our orientation session. At that time one of our faculty members, as if speaking to each student sitting in that auditorium, said “you are new for us and in the same way we are new for you. Each one of you must be having some special skills and these skills should be known to us. Remember one thing students, in this span of three years you should be known to us by your names and not by your roll numbers.” These words are printed on my mind.

I must say that faculty members here are the true pillars for all the success NR has seen. Once a student passes out from NR he/she is a completely changed person. They know the exact point where a student needs to improve and they polish the student so that he/she can excel in the outer world. The atmosphere at NR is very harmonious. Right from the Director to the faculty members, administration department and peons, all are always ready to guide us and help us out in any situation where we get stuck.

NR encourages each student in his/her likings whether it is related to curricular, co-curricular activities, cultural activities, sports, etc.

I am proud to say that I am an NRite.

Vaibhav Shah

(Class of 2013; Currently Entrepreneur)

I earned a Bachelor’s of Business Administration in Finance & Accounting from NR Institute of Business Administration. It provided me with a rock solid foundation and strong background for my future. The institution has helped me grow tremendously over the past 3 years and the growth that I’ve personally achieved is unparalleled.

Studying at NR is more than just gaining a degree - it includes developing a student as a better person and a professional allowing him/her to explore and better understand the real world. It provides students with a powerful combination of academic education and co-curricular work yielding important practical experience. The professors here are extremely professional, experienced as well as very inspiring. I have nothing but praise for the college and the professors for providing ample opportunities to me during my course work at NR. The aspects of my course that I enjoyed most during my study at NR were Case Analysis, Business Plan and the Quiz competitions along with the academics. These helped in honing my research and analytical skills and most importantly facilitated the instant application of my theoretical knowledge in the practical world.

All in all, I enjoyed the complexity of the course, the perfect blend of its theoretical and practical dimensions and most importantly the great time I have spent with my professors as well as my fellow students. It was a time that I would cherish for my entire life.

Ayush Mehta

(Class of 2013; Currently Entrepreneur, Print Media)

Joining a college is one of the biggest decisions in a student’s life.

While I was just done with my 12th, I was sure of where I was heading. I chose NR because of the name it has earned and it proved to be a right decision, as it has given me all the support to shape my career. NR is a place where every student is treated equally. The hard work and time devoted by the professors is the main reason behind all my achievements. NR does not only focus on the academics, but also on different activities that help a student grow in his/her chosen field. It helps the students to find the right path and directs them to attain the highest goal. I would give credits to the college campus, professors and each and every person who belongs to the college for giving me the confidence and igniting the passion to start up my own business. The events like BBA Baazigar, Spandan, and music events made me understand all the management concepts in a practical setup. Over the span of three years I have realized that NR is not just another college where you would get your degree from, but also a right step towards a bright future.

Priyank Bothra

(Class of 2012; Current student of B K School of Business Management, Class of 2014)

I won’t ever forget the three memorable years I spent at NR BBA.

NR BBA, as an institution as rightly said by Avani ma’am, Director at NR, is an undergraduate management college that will prepare you for future management studies.

At NR, I got to see the strictness of professors for attendance, mastiyan on campus, guidance provided as and when required and an exposure to various non-academic activities at various institutes and universities across Ahmedabad and the State of Gujarat. NR has taught me a lot of things which makes it very easy for me in pursuing my Post Graduation.

From being almost zero in terms of what is going on across the globe, to gaining knowledge and taking part in Co-Curricular activities like quiz, NR backed me every time. For this I am thankful to the supportive faculty who helped me and my friends in participating in various events.

At NR BBA, the quality of learning is tremendous. At different levels, one can easily find oneself climb the ladder in terms of gaining knowledge and expertise in the field one wants to specialise in. The study at NR is not only restricted to theoretical or bookish knowledge. Through the industrial visits, case study competitions and seminars by experts, students can also gain some valuable practical knowledge.

NR, not only focuses on the Syllabus or academics but they also provide equal weightage to Extra Curricular activities like singing, dancing and dramatics.

To sum up, I would say that, one should grab the opportunity of becoming a part of such a great institution, where life takes one beyond academics.
