In 1981, SPJIMR was inaugurated by the British prime minister, Margaret Thatcher, as the Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan's  Institute for Master of Management Studies. The first batch joined the institute for the Master of Management Studies, or MMS programme. The class of 1983 was placed in several top companies, including BPCL, HDFC Ltd., Johnson & Johnson, Wipro, Asian Paints, Nerolac Paints Ltd, and Godrej & Boyce. In 1986, Dr. M.L. Shrikant joined the institute as the dean and led the institution for almost three decades, introducing new methods of teaching and imparting management education
In 1992, SPJIMR acquired an autonomous status. The MMS programme was then renamed as PGDM.
In 1994 and 1995, Development of Corporate Citizenship (DoCC)  and ADMAP (Assessment and Development of Managerial and Administrative Potential)  were launched respectively. PGDM students work with non-profit organisations in rural India for six weeks as part of DoCC. Students from PGDM work in committees as part of ADMAP.

In 2000, autumn internships were started for the PGDM students after they completed their specialisation phase. This ensured that they were more industry ready.

The programme is a full-time management programme for women who have taken a career break and seek to return to their professional careers. SPJIMR also launched the Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) in 2016 to prepare the next generation of academic researchers and thought leaders.
In 2018, SPJIMR received the accreditation from the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), International.
