KJ Somaiya Institute Of Management Studies and Research has a beautiful campus which is about 65 acres. It has a running track which is huge, amazing and well-furnished classrooms with full air conditioned facilities. Somaiya vidyavihar consists of 34 individual institutes inside the campus which explain the diversity within the campus. SIMSR, as it is called, has tie-ups with big companies like Google,Amazon and on top of it, the first year MBA students are continuously having guest lectures from the CEOs of companies wherein they have first-hand experience of talking to the corporate personalities and getting knowledge from them. Apart from the corporate exposure, SIMSR also provides a lot of fun activities like an event for the freshers which is directly after the start of the college which works as an ice breaker. Also, they take the students for an outbound trip where the focus is on team building. Through fun, we are taught to work which is why we have 22 committees for the 2 major courses PGDM and MMS of SIMSR. Placements provided by SIMSR is at par with other MBA institutes and is just getting better with each passing year which adds on to the positives of the college. Within the campus there are hostels for boys and girls also which is very well furnished and also there is a mess for the food which is available 24*7 and recently started with a night mess also which will help the students eat while staying up. When we talk about SIMSR, one cannot miss talking about Prof. Isaac Jacob who is the faculty coordinator of PGDM Communications program. This is because he has been a Marketing, Advertising ,Brand Management professional with 30 years of seat-of-the -pants experience and has launched/worked on brands such as Barbie Dolls, He-man and the Masters of the Universe,Hotwheels(Mattel Inc);Puma High-Performance Sports Shoes among many other brands. Our college constitutes of 2 major management courses namely PGDM and MMS. In PGDM itself we have a core, International Business, Financial Services,Retail Management and Marketing Communications while MMS which is affiliated with Mumbai University focuses on the core management courses. This explains the diverse crowd in the college and the scope for competition among the students and also there is a lot to learn from each one of them. The main USP of SIMSR is the course fee structure which most of the other management courses lack. SIMSR charges 4.4Lakh per annum for its PGDM course and 2.4 Lakhs per year for MMS which is so affordable and SIMSR ranks on top in the 2nd tier colleges and currently ranks 13th b-school of India.

A Day at SIMSR.

Being at SIMSR is like living In the midst of woods. The day begins with the healthy breakfast. Classes have all the facilities required like the internet, proper lights, big boards, projectors, ACs, enough charging points for all, etc. Lunch and dinner are not up to the mark but well it's not that bad either. You always have substitute food items available. Snacks are very well prepared. The best part here is that it has a lot of trees. It feels pollution free especially in the city like Mumbai. The campus is huge with various sports facilities like a beautiful race track, football court, indoor badminton court, squash court, etc. The faculties are very cooperative and have brilliant teaching skills. All in all, I would rate it 4.5 out of 5.

My experience at the college has been much better than what I expected. Located in the middle of the city, this college us easy to reach from any part if the city which gives a good accessibility. Talking about the course, the subjects and faculty are good enough and give you an overall development. Also, the initiatives taken by the authorities to promote awareness about the course is commendable. The placements are as promised and provide you a pool to choose from.

One of the best colleges in teier 2 which accepts cat ,xat ,cmat for its pgdm programs, I myself is from pg communications, although scored 99.25 in cmat and selected this one as it has best structure among the lot and placements are common and at par with all other branches , faculty is decent enough, infra is good, campus is huge by the way, and it has many facilities although they arent free thats the biggest negative point . mess food is great and hostel rooms are average . 3 people share one small room, sigh of relief is you have attached bathroom, overall its good college for tier 2 and icing on the cake is it is in Mumbai.
