Jaipur is known for many things its heritage, culture, tradition and education among other things. However many a times we forget to acknowledge the fact that Jaipur is an education hub and Jaipurites are lucky to have access to high end education in the city itself. Education is undoubtedly the strongest pillar of society and the institutions that make high end education available in the society definitely needs to be applauded. This is why Jaipur Beat decided to throw some light on this aspect of Jaipur by talking about the oldest B-School in the city, Ramnath Anandilal Podar Institute of Management (RAPIM).
The institute that has been a pioneer in management education for past 43 years does not need any introduction. Every year students who prepare for higher management education strive hard to be part of this institution.
