Sports at SJMSoM, IIT Bombay

Life at SJMSoM, IIT Bombay cannot be described in few sentences. Apart from academics, which almost takes 50% of awake time on any given day (Yes, even on Sundays), the better half of the day goes into preparing for competitions, a little bit of entertainment and last but not the least SPORTS.

Sports not only give an opportunity to relax but is also an excuse to exercise and have fun. From an MBA's perspective it also helps in networking with people from other departments and colleges as well. Here at SJMSoM, IIT Bombay; we have awesome infrastructure for sports which attracts everyone to pursue one or the other games he/she is passionate about.



There are a lot of opportunities at IIT Bombay in terms of Inter PG and Inter Hostel tournaments where students participate to explore and compete with each other in various sport events. I barely remember adjusting to the new environment of IIT when the first event of swimming was organized. A bit amazed at the quickness of the arrival of event, we participated first time as the SJMSoM department where we won silver. There was no looking back from there on. Today, when we have almost completed the end of our first year, we can proudly say that we have fared decently in various inter PG events. Gold in Table Tennis, gold in squash and hoping for a good performance in Inter PG volleyball competition which is happening even as I write this article.

But, the story doesn't end here. Some of you might be wondering that SJMSoM is a B-school, so what about the inter B-school competitions? You are right. Being in close proximity to various B-schools here in Mumbai, we have more than enough opportunities to participate in the sports events organized by various B-schools. We participated in sports events organized by NITIE, S.P. Jain, K. J. Somaiya and MISB Bocconi. At S. P. Jain’s sprint, we won 3 golds and 2 silvers in swimming and 2 silvers and a bronze in athletic events. K. J. Somaiya’s medal tally stands at gold in volleyball, silver in chess and a silver and bronze in athletic events. Also, we won the first prize in a cricket quiz conducted by MISB Bocconi.

Sports not only helps us to meet and interact with different people, which is one of the major points of doing MBA, but also gives a platform to students for showcase their talents and getting better at it. It develops various skills such as leadership qualities, ability to work in a team and so much more which I guess is known and understood by all.


I sincerely hope that we keep on participating with the same enthusiasm and win more and more medals every year…. Amen!!!

  4. What's even more frustrating for a coach is that so much of this external judgment comes from individuals who don't seem to have a clue about you, your players, or what you're trying to accomplish with the team.basketball sneakers
