In a marketplace, where the MBA has remained a degree, SISTec MBA has become the torchbearer for the quality and skill-based Management Studies in India in general and Central India in particular. Major Corporate Tie-ups for placements make the backbone of the excellent placements at SISTec.
Now let me answer the question WHY?
SISTec MBA is situated in the city of Bhopal, which is known for its beauty and heritage but it is a city with less of the corporate interface as compared to cities like Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, etc or even nearby city of Indore which is flourishing as the economic capital of MP. But SISTec MBA has surpassed all the leading MBA colleges of these economic cities to become amongst the top 10 best colleges in India. The reason behind this achievement can be attributed to the quality academics, focus on skill development, excellent placements and innovative methods of teaching-learning.
Events and Practical Exposure:
We at SISTec MBA believe in the imparting of education in the most innovative manner. Eventful Wednesdays at SISTec MBA make the teaching-learning process interesting and also result oriented. Various events are organized by students like Nukkad Natak, Advertisement Making, Ad Mad Show, Brandoholic and more. These events help in the overall personality development of the students which finally helps them in their placements.
The various corporate has a tie-up with SISTec MBA to provide internships to students and all the internships provide an opportunity to “Earn while Learn” opportunities. At least 6 months paid internships are part of the MBA at SISTec MBA which makes the student corporate ready and then the placements become a cakewalk for them. In fact, most of the students are recruited full time by the corporate providing internship opportunities.

Guest Lectures from leading corporate strengthens the teaching-learning process more relevant and contemporary. It also helps students to remain updated with the recent changes in the industry.
Now let me answer the question HOW?
The biggest paradox here is between Quality Vs Quantity, the quality of teachers and mentor-student relationship.
Quality Vs Quantity:
SISTec MBA has 120 seats in MBA which have become most sought-after seats for MBA aspirants from the whole of India. Even after become amongst the top 10 leaders in Management Education in India, SISTec MBA has not gone for an increase in the number of seats. Rather of quality of teaching-learning process has always taken the first seat. The focus has been on skill building and following blue ocean strategy in Management education.
Quality of Teachers:
As all the faculties of SISTec MBA come from a corporate background with Doctorate in the field of Management, it makes the teachers more bent towards corporate training and placements rather than dry delivery of university curriculum.
SISTec MBA has proved to be a revolution in the field of Management Education and has challenged the traditional teacher-student relationship. Here, Teachers are mentors and students are Management Trainees. SISTec MBA is a student-driven college and students are given responsibilities to organize events, take care of day today working of the college. Here Students are owners and thus they develop the entrepreneurial abilities over a period of time.
To conclude, I would just mention that quality always leads over quantity and it is very important to align higher education in our country with the corporate demand. We should realize the immense potential lying in our youth and should try to tap the same to make better tomorrow. The MBA program proves to be a role model for the new generation business schools which are qualitatively active, democratically governed, youth-centric and corporate-aligned in the market economy.
