It's really tough to get in this college won't be as soon as and easy as the other colleges. People here are amazingly talented coming from all parts of India. Majority crowd is Bengali people here who super smart mostly from the arts background. Mba here is also fair enough. This college is a second best college which offers a degree so virtually the best college in India for Mass communication studies.

The best thing about SIMC is its campus which is world class. The faculty also is very good and experienced. But placements are not something we can boast of since the average package lies between 5-6 lacs p. a..our college is also known for the creative minds it nurtures and the various events that take place throughout the year

SIMC - Education amidst the hills

Posted on 27 Aug' 16 by malay wani
Batch of 2018 | MBA Communication Management
SIMC boasts of one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, and having already spent 3 months here, I couldn't agree more. The MBA course in communication management is a niche in itself with the subjects specifically designed catering the industry needs. The placements are decent enough with the average package increasing every year as the demand is rising. Cells, clubs, and competitions keep you engaged and that's where true learning happens apart from the regular classrooms. A mix of classroom learning coupled with guest lectures from industry experts and informal sessions from the alumni provide the right kind of mix required to have an overview of the media industry. The campus life is fun filled and the hills around make you get engrossed and more often than not lose yourself in thoughts and time. There are plenty of opportunities to pursue your hobbies as well, be it photography, drama, music, dance, sports, and the best of them all staring at the hills.

This place has a fine dish campus to start with. And when it comes to placement agencies appear more than corporate entities. Great infrastructure by the way. Lots to learn. Very friendly atmosphere. Faculties are also some of the finest and external faculties are better than internal (if that counts for a tip). If one joins for any course at this institute one must also be wary of its affordability as it doesn't quite come cheap. Although this might not apply for every course but the management ones are the costliest. Hoping that this review helps someone.

I have never seen a college like this before. Since I am on the hill top campus, I have an insane view of the hills, waterfalls in monsoon, luscious green trees and many many birds. If this doesn't sound like a great place to study, I don't know what does. They have top class infrastructure and instruments. The curriculum is very different and interesting. It brings you closer to the industry with every semester. The faculty is intelligent and extremely friendly. The hostels have a swimming pool, yoga, zumba and aerobics sessions. There's gym, basketball court, volleyball court, table tennis court, squash court, badminton court, etc.There are a lot of activities and competitions that have nothing to do with academics. You might also see a lot celebrities simply walking past you on the campus, sometimes on a cycle or in their car. We just had amir khan on our campus who sat with us on the floor of our canteen to watch the olympics because the seats were occupied by students. The college hosted Salman Khan prior that when he was shooting for a film. It's super fun to be a part of this institution.

Great set of subjects concisely spread across 4 semesters with industry interaction and exposure right from day 1. Great platform to showcase and hone one's talent. Active events for academic, sports, co-curricular and cultural. On an average there is a minimum of two events every month from either of the above categories. Good infrastructure and is situated amidst nature in a beautiful Symbiosis Lavale Campus.

SIMC is eco-friendly educational institute situated on the top of Lavale Hills, Pune. The pleasant atmosphere and beauty of campus make you feel connected to nature. The infrastructure and facility available on campus are amongst the very best. Fully networked campus has a good data connectivity. Hostel rooms are well furnished and the view from balcony is just amazing as I can see the garden and hills. Bus Service which in my opinion is the lifeline of SIBM, making my stay here comfortable. Sports and recreation center gives us a chance to stay fit and we are exposed to many sports including Basketball, Squash, Snooker, Swimming, Badminton etc. In short, here my life is on a beautiful learning path.

As a communication college, it provides you with a good course structure required for the media industry. The culture is encouraging and participative. A good place to be at. The campus is beautiful. The teachers are friendly and encourage discussions. Routine might get hectic and random. There's a lot of effort that media industry requires which is not limited to the curriculum.

SIMC-Pune is a great place to be in if passion and learning are your priorities. Excellent teachers, a beautiful campus and crazy set of friends guaranteed . SIMC has something for everyone. Always wished to be in media space and wondered which MBA suits you, MBA-CM @SIMC is your answer.SIMC is one of the two institutes in the country which offers the course and it's brilliant the way it is. I have nothing to complain so far from the time I joined SIMC. Admissions are through SNAP. Visit SIMC and SNAP website for more information on the same. If money minting is only what you are looking at and not job satisfaction better join any of the IIMs then. SIMC also gives you holistic development not the training to be ATM machines. It gives you guidance to be future CEOs of media agencies, it pushes you to spread your wings and fly.

Superb Institute

"Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication (PG), Pune offers the best of everything. The college infrastructure, be it the building, equipment used, classrooms etc. are all state of the art and are constantly upgraded with changes in technology. The library is heaven for those in pursuit of knowledge. It is well stocked with journals, books, magazines, research papers and audio-visual tools. It contains books on all the areas of management as well as other extra reference material. The e-library is also well maintained with journals from EBSCO, JSTOR, Harvard Business Review etc. Coming to placements, SIMC Pune has made its presence felt in the industry with many big names in the corporate world as well as the media agencies like Zee Entertainment, Edelman, Genesis Burson-Marsteller, JWT, DDB Mudra, GroupM, National Instruments etc hiring graduates from the campus, who have gone to become leaders in fields of Advertising, Public Relations, Media Management, Digital Media/Marketing and Media and Market Research. The Institute provides a healthy blend of academic as well as non-academic development. Apart from regular classroom teaching sessions, there are many student-industry interactions which are scheduled throughout the year - some with industry stalwarts in the form of moderated panel discussions, some in the form of speeches, and some in the form of student competitions judged by the stalwarts. Also, since alumni are the extensions of the institute and the link between the institute and the industry, SIMC holds student sessions with its Alumni as well. The hostel is always full of life, providing a homely atmosphere to the students. There are separate hostels for boys and girls, with girls getting to choose between double and triple occupancy, while boys being able to choose two, three or four-seater rooms. Rooms are equipped with comfortable beds, study tables and chairs, and a spacious cupboard. Bathrooms are attached with the rooms. Students get running water all day long with hot water being provided for three hours in the morning and two hours in the evening. The institute also boasts of excellent sports facilities like Gym, Swimming Pool, Zumba, Yoga, Table Tennis, Badminton, Basketball, Volleyball, Football, Snooker and Chess to name a few. For food lovers, there are plenty of options to choose from - the college mess which provides wholesome, nutritious food, the Delhi Chaat which is the hangout for rolls, momos, noodles, the Midnight Cafe (10 PM to 2 AM) which is there to take care of the midnight hunger pangs, and the college canteen (Symbi Eat), for a quick snack and a cup of tea/coffee between classes. There is also a general provision store to take care of one's daily needs, an ice-cream shop, a laundromat service, a coffee shop as well as a salon. There are two 24X7 ATMs within the campus. Also, there is a Health Centre which has a resident doctor to address medical issues. Cultural Festivals such as Aarambh, SIMCarnival, and Fest-O-Comm are held annually for students to showcase their talents. Shuttle buses run five times from the Lavale Hilltop Campus to Pune city and back. There is also a shuttle bus service running from the hilltop campus till the hill base campus and back. To sum it up, SIMC Pune, is a great place to be in. Moreover, the campus is so beautiful that one can't resist the temptation of clicking pictures there, not to forget the amazing weather..it's never too hot or too cold...just perfect! "
