1) Quality of Intake
We have kept the strength of the batch constant. This has been done in spite of thousands of students who aspire to get into SIBM, Pune. This has ensured “quality” to be exceptional. Hence corporate houses are always keen to recruit from SIBM, Pune
2) Innovation in Programme structure
We have constantly taken the current needs and the future needs of the corporate into consideration while we design and revamp courses. Many schools only look at the current need and try to fill the gap.
We look at the futuristic need and impart knowledge to our students with the rigorous course curriculum designed for the same.Courses like- Doing Business in India , Moral Re-Armament Programme, Indian Ethos and Values for Management, Design Thinking , Management Consulting, Capstone Project and Defense , Digital Marketing are very uniquely designed and have added immense value to the students.
2) Emphasis on Knowing, Being and Doing
We have taken the lessons from book “Rethinking the MBA” by Dr Srikant M. Datar and Dr David A. Garvin . In fact Prof. Dr. Srikant M. Datar who is a Professor at Harvard Business school is a mentor for Symbiosis and SIBM,Pune has followed the philosophy of “Knowing,Being and Doing”, which has helped us immensely in making our B School Unique.
While many talk of innovation, we have a full time MBA programme on Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Corporate houses have applauded the curriculum. The chief mentor for the programme is Dr.Mashelkar himself ! Our focus on Innovation and Entrepreneurship has helped us stand out as a unique B School in India.
