Great exposure and plethora of opportunities

Posted on 15 Sep' 19 by Vinay Kapri

SIMSR has a great infrastructure, and is one of the few colleges in the country to have a BLOOMBERG lab. There are 28 student run committees, including Guest lecture committee and Alumni committee who work really hard to invite prominent personalities for guest lectures which provides good corporate exposure to us. The college life is very happening and provides great opportunities for sports and extra curricular activities. I have not received any placement yet, as the summer placement season has just started. I have not opted for hostel as I am from Mumbai itself and do not have much knowledge about the hostel facilities. Most of the professors are PhD holders with good industry exposure and teaching methodology, I do not expect any more skills from them. Average CAT percentile of the batch is around 90 percentile and almost everyone possess good communication skills, having cleared a tough GDPI session, also the college has a good mix of freshers and people with work ex. The fees of the PGDM course is slightly on a higher side and affordability can be a concern for the aspirants.

SIMSR is one of the best MBA colleges in Mumbai. It provides excellent placement and average package close to 10 lakh p.a. I will strongly suggest opting this college if you don't get any of the top IIMs. Lush green campus and huge infra make it only of its kind college in Mumbai.

SIMSR is a reputed college. Good efforts are taken to complete the syllabus.It's ranked among the top 30 management institutes in India. Most of our faculties have good corporate experience and many are PHDs. There are a lot many committees like Alcom, Pcom, Sports, Student Council, Technical Committee, Hostel Committee, Mess Committee which helps you learn managerial tricks. It is not easy to be a part of these committees. There is a good fight among students of various courses. Apart from this a lot of events keep happening in the college apart from the annual events Melange, icon, and Nostalgia. Placements are good . You will get the opportunity it is on you to maximize.Due to the huge pack of notable alumni’ in many reputed MNC’s these alumni’ visit the campus to take seminars frequently. Seminars are conducted on a variety of topics from marketing to ethics, and on an average, there are around 3 seminars every month. Attending these seminars is compulsory while liking it, or not depends solely on one’s interest. Students are informed well before the seminar.Hindustan Unilever has conducted a seminar on FMCG category of products, while Cinemax, Deloitte,Capgemini have conducted seminars at the college too. Sports lover will love the infrastructure. Canteen too is good and you have Maggie house which is the best. Fees is a bit too much especially for a hostel. Hostel mess is fine. Overall there is a good discipline.
