In 1884, St. Joseph's College was established. It has grown steadily and today has more than 8000 students enrolled at the Undergraduate and Post Graduate courses in Arts, Science, Commerce, Computer and Management disciplines in its four independent Colleges namely, St. Joseph's College (Arts & Science), St. Joseph's College of Commerce, St. Joseph's Evening College and St. Joseph's College of Business Administration (SJCBA).

At SJIM, we connect and learn from each other and build strong bonds. Colleges often provide just class room teaching, but at SJIM we are also provided insights from industrialists and we have multiple presentations that train us to share our ideas confidently with others. We also have multiple assignments, quizzes, and aptitude tests to go through, but at the end we learn what no other student from any other college learns. We are the ones who stand out of the crowd due to these multiple experiences!
