JSA has been around for many years and is a traditional student organization at JIBS. Discover various milestone that happened and are happenning during our journey.
1982: Establishing JSA
The JSA was founded in 1982 for a variety of reasons. The most important ones were to ensure a continuous high level of educational quality, to provide the students of JIBS with excellent career opportunities and to create an actively buzzing social life for its members. These are the visions that have guided us through the years and which we today still hold in high honor.
