SIBM Pune is a premier b-school in the country and has a host of advantages as follows: Location advantages-The college is situated in Pune, which due to robust IT Infrastructure and close proximity to Mumbai, has its own advantages as most of the global firms have established their offices in Mumbai irrespective of the domains. Student driven culture- The student council and SIG’s of SIBM Pune are responsible for undertaking the most critical activities ranging from conducting admissions to maintaining alumni or corporate relations to cultural events to placements with the guidance and support of the Director. The councils independently decide their course of events and plan them end to end along with preparing budgets and handling resources efficiently. Placements- The official reports on Placements and Summer Internships are externally audited and is one of the few colleges that follow IPRS(Indian Placement Reporting Standards). Hence, I can vouch for the figures disclosed in the placement report. Every year, the outgoing batch’s average salary has been on a consistent rise. Last year the official average package offered was 17.48 lacs for the outgoing batch. Batch Size- The Batch size is small, opening doors for more participation in college activities and genuine networking. The peer to peer learning both in and out of class makes the experience valuable and ensures genuine connections being formed both during and well after the course is completed. Corporate Competitions- Competitions are a major differentiating factor between SIBM Pune and other colleges. SIBM Pune emerged as the only college that won maximum corporate competitions in 2018, beating the likes of IIM A, K, FMS or XLRI.. Be it HUL L.I.M.E, Carpe-diem, RB Global Challenge, Godrej Loud, Marico Over the Wall, Tata Steel-A-Thon, Nestle 4 P’s Challenge, Airtel iCreate, ABG HeasStart etc., the students have never failed to make a mark in the business world.

SIBM Pune,one the Premier B-school of India, SIBM is situated at the hilltop of Lavale hill filled with uttermost peace, natural scenic views of the city and a great climate, it has top class infrastructure from the full furnished hostel and recreational center including the swimming pool to smart classrooms. SIBM has very strong alum network, who on the regular basis com visit the college to help, guide and expose the students to the corporate world. Apart from this Industrial visits ,Guest lectures from renowned leaders help students to get a good grasp of what they are going to face after college and most importantly how to face it. The best part about studying in one of the premier B-school is you get to meet the most talented bunch of people from the country, be its faculties, classmates, guest lecturers. Their perspective and ideation groom you to become the best in the actual world. SIBM has always maintained the finest placement records. There is a better than average focus on creating street-smart managers and the co-curriculum of the college, as well as many of the assignments serve to achieve this purpose well. In my opinion, this is one of the most important base requirements for a new manager. The specialization system has a Placement-based disadvantage and also a learning based advantage - you will always pick up the basics of other specializations along the way, and the specialization system ensures that your depth of knowledge in other fields is much greater than that of others.

The course is specially designed for each of the specialization. Tests, Assignments, and Projects are given on a regular basis. The student needs to choose his/her specialization in the initial days. Hence, subjects relevant to his specialization are taught also in the first year of MBA.SIBM boasts effective and strong alumni base. Placements are really good. A lot of good profiles are offered to the students. It has state of an art infrastructure including classrooms, IT Labs, and library.The social atmosphere is good here and we get to interact with several people here. Overall the campus life is exciting.

Being an international student, I solely joined the college based on its reputation it portrays in the outside world. But it is due to the students who are capable enough before entering the institute that keeps its reputation intact. The faculty or the academic program does not play any role in improving the quality of the students. The only benefit to joining this college is that due its good reputation the placements are good but for Marketing and HR only. Also, a good amount of exposure to corporate competitions is received but the expertise lacks in cracking those competitions in the students in the first year as no assistance is provided by the institute itself to guide the students in approaching the case studies.

The one thing you look when you enter campus is the picturesque view from lavale hills. We were enjoying the honeymoon period for the first few days then the course started with a nice induction programme which helped students to gain knowledge on business etiquettes and skills on leadership, strategy, teamwork, etc. During the induction, we had an ice breaking session, a trip to Karjat, and various lectures from industry experts. After the commencement of classes, we were exposed to many subjects of all specializations. Deadlines of never-ending assignments, classes, numerous guest lectures made us learn the art of multi-tasking. The experience has been enriching and I am looking forward to a great time ahead.

Symbiosis provides all the opportunities that a management student seeks. A splendid campus with the exuberant crowd which is always engaged in managing events related to Marketing, Entrepreneurship, etc. The Institute also conduct guest lectures and workshops driven by eminent professionals from key players. The institute has a robust placement committee which works to place all the students for final placements and summer internship as well.

One of the best things that happened to me was SIBM Pune. Started the MBA career on 1st June, Indoor stadium (Gym, swimming pool, T.T., Pool, Badminton, and squash) was a great blessing for a sportsperson like me. Outing to Karjat during induction program was the much-needed icebreaker when I made best friends. the hilltop location is one the rarest things an MBA college can offer we live 2 years in a hill station. Great placements and an internship with some big names like HUL ITC JP Morgan Morgan Stanley etc coming to the campus. Hostel life is great, 2 am entry time restriction and midnight canteen that is open till 2 am too. A mix of a talented crowd coming from all across the country and abroad. diversity is great too.

I have been a part of this pronounced institution for almost one year now and I feel proud to be associated with it. This institute has given me a new life, new experiences which molded me so much. SIBM Pune is a totally student driven college. It teaches you to be a manager right from day 1. Right from focusing on the nuts and bolts of organizing an event to actually participating and winning a competition - you learn it all. B-schools can intimidating initially but if you have a good faculty/staff, seniors and supportive colleagues/classmates, it can be as easy as falling off a log. There's an amazing sense of camaraderie here at SIBM P, it doesn't matter if you're fresher or a lateral. It keeps you motivated to achieve your goals. Personally, I would definitely recommend this college to all MBA aspirants.

Experience of a lifetime

Posted on 25 Aug' 16 by Apurva Kushwaha
Batch of Jan. 1, 2014 | MBA
SIBM is a very old and prestigious college for MBA. there is no doubt that it provides excellent placement opportunities. but more than that the kind of experience it gives to its students during its 2-year course is unparalleled. the SIBM lavale campus is shared by various other campuses of Symbiosis so it gives its students a chance to interact with students of various other streams and courses. SiBM is situated at the hill top of lavale, the exquisite beauty of the campus and the surrounding hills gives us an experience of a hill station. sometimes it is difficult to study in such a lovely campus as the weather also comes as a distraction. The curriculum of the college is extremely rigorous for its students. the college makes the students ready for any challenges that they might encounter in their work environment. it gives great emphasis on punctuality and discipline. the hostels are clean and give all the basic facilities to its students. the windows of the rooms open directly towards the sight of the valley. SIBM is totally a student driven college so it gives maximum exposure to its students and prepares them for future leadership roles. SIBM has a very large alumni base in the industry .the placement record of the college had been good over the years. although the college is far from the city, it provides free of cost bus service at regular intervals.i would highly recommend SIBM Pune to any student who wants to pursue MBA from here.

Overall it's no worth on immediate basis to take up the course. It's just a course introduced to make money. Initially, the administration says that attendance is important but you'll see new faces directly in the examination. Ultimately they want ppl to take up the course and don't want to ma Tain it's credibility. Teachers are a mix of good and bad.

SIBM gives you chance to explore and that's best part of MBA. Real time case based learning for most of subjects with experienced faculty improves learning experience. College infrastructure and location is unique of its kind for post-graduation. SIBM provides plenty of resources to tackle various B-school competitions. Library, Bloomberg terminal and subscription to various syndicate resources is helpful to gain lot of information.

Living on 300 acre hilltop residential campus amongst a diverse mix of like minded individuals with good academic rigour and exposure are some of the highlights of life at SIBM Pune. A completely student run institute, there are 9 student councils which are responsible for each important activity on campus like placements, alumni relations, corporate interaction, admissions, co-curricular activity etc. With a unique practical course like Innovation and Intrapreneurship, I'm loving each aspect of life here on the hill.

A happening college and city with amazing exposure!! It's got everything you need to grow as an MBA. But if you are going for a great MBA college with a bright-shiny brand name then it takes whole lot of investment as well. So, it doesn't really hurt that much when you know the output is outstanding!!
