SIMS- Make A Difference

AV
Aaditi Verma

Remarks

This is the motto that Symbiosis is known for and also abides by. Symbiosis, or to particularly say Symbiosis Institute of Management Studies has always thrived to Make A Difference. SIMS has always been known as an Institution for students with a defence background as it provides 90% seats to them and 10% seats to civilians/open-category students. This provides a good diversity ratio among students. SIMS is ranked 9th overall in India & is among the top 3 B-Schools in the state of Maharashtra in private institutes in India. One of the reasons to choose SIMS was this student & cultural diversity and international exposure that couldn't possibly be experienced anywhere in the world. Also, what attracted me the most towards SIMS was, it is a completely student-run institution where all the activities like from planning & organizing an event or conference to placement drives of students, everything is handled and trusted upon to students.

Course Curriculum Overview

9/10

SIMS provides a full time 2 years MBA program spread over 4 semesters. The specializations offered in major/minor include Marketing, Finance, Operations, Human Resource Management, Information System, International Business, Retail Management, Entrepreneurship. SIMS also provides executive PGDM. The curriculum is aptly aligned with the current industry needs. Also, the faculty to students ratio is quite fair. SIMS has highly experienced faculties who are all either PhD or have many years of industry experience. As we haven't been able to get the experience of physical classes yet nonetheless the online classes are no less fun. The faculties have gone beyond their limits in providing us with the best learning they could offer even with technical difficulties. We have periodic case studies, presentations, assignments to boost our problem solving & critical thinking skills, and this a semester-based which gives us ample time to understand the subjects along the way.

10/10

Campus life sounds enticing as heard from various seniors & Alumni as my batch 2020-22 wasn't able to live the campus life yet. We have the full year filled with many cultural, sports & business events! SIMS has a rigorous orientation program to change the students to transformational leaders. ORION is the annual management sports and cultural festival & BARCODE is the managerial event & a week-long Global Leader's Summit organized by the placement cell where global leaders all around the globe come to share their insights with the students and, etc. SIMS has 10+ teams & cells like Events cell, sports cell, branding cell to make students gain experience, learn & have fun at the same time.

Students are offered a clean four-sharing room with attached facilities, a common room with each hostel building & a mess with a variety of food on the menu for all the days of the week. The fees for the hostel is included in the total fees through the bifurcation of fees could be seen in the fees structure on the SIMS website.

Interview Experience

10/10

The admission process is quite simple and smooth. Shortlisting of students is primarily based on their SNAP results previous graduation results, then they are called for the GEPIWAT process which is a Group Exercise followed by a Written Ability Test followed by a round of Personal Interview. All these rounds are thought-provoking & test the ability of students on various aspects like creativity, decision making, teamwork, self-awareness, etc. Only a single merit list comes after the end of all processes of around 300 students which includes 90% students from the defence category & 10% students from open-category, both including the international students as well.
