Entrance exam - SNAP Score 70%. Chose this college as I was from computer engineering background. Having a technical background and being above average student SITM was the best option as I did not want to drop for 1 year.
Course structure of SITM is excellent. It focuses on Telecom, Technology and Finance along with Business. Any changes in the industry are dynamically picked in the curriculum. Courses like, analytics by IBM, Value Added Programmes like ITIL, eTOM etc. are the part of curriculum itself. Also, Research project is a mandate, and the process of the project goes on for 2 months laying stress on extensive research and study with help of faculty and industry experts.
Yes, Summer internship is conducted by college itself. Companies from various domains such as Operator,Consulting, Networks, VAS, Digital Media etc. Stipend varies upon company and skill sets of students. College also makes sure that any company/ profile that is irrelevant to final placements does not make their way to campus.
Companies from various domains such as Operator,Consulting, Networks, VAS, Digital Media etc. Package varies upon company and skill sets of students. Minimum package is around 5 lacs whereas maximum goes till 17 lacs depending upon market conditions. Few frequent companies to be named from different verticals are - Telecom operator, Idea Consulting - Protiviti, EY, KPMG, PwC IT - Infosys, TCS, Accenture, IBM.
College has lot of Management events and few cultural fests. Though all festivals are celebrated, Management events like telecom seminars, conclaves etc. are hosted often. Industry experts across the globe are invited so that students can gain the knowledge and it also gives students a platform to meet experts and show case their knowledge on global front.
Alumni network at SITM is brilliant. College has alumni committee which bridges the gap between college and Alumni and works towards maintaining the relations. Alumni support the college in placements and internships. Alumni even help students in research projects and mentor the students whenever required.
Exams and Labs are a frequent thing. Symbiosis does not believe in 1 exam to pass it all. There are monthly assessments and each assessment is different from previous assessment in terms of course and structure. Assessment can be MCQs, subjective type test, PPT, Assginment, Report etc. Final exam is full subjective type exam and comprises of 40% of marks. Monthly assessments make 60% of marks broken up into 3-4 assessments.
After SNAP, I had to go through Group Discussion and Personal Interview process. After SNAP results are out GD and PI are scheduled by college. In the process mainly Extempore, GD, PI are conducted. The process is not very difficult, and interview is taken by faculty and industry experts.
Faculty at SITM is highly learned, professional and qualified. They keep abreast with the fast changing world and incorporate that in the lectures. Mode of teaching varies from typical lectures to PPTs, role plays, assignments etc. Proff. Giri Hallur possess vast knowledge of Telecom along with related industries such as VAS. All the lecturers are gems.
The students become eligible from trim 5 for campus placements. The average package offered is around 10L. The approximate companies that visited the campus were 50-60 and the highest package received in the 2021 batch is 22 lacs p.a. 100% batch is placed for summers as well as for final placements and the role offered is also good.
Big opportunity to get easily placement. A lot of companies came every 6 months. There is a special class for students on how to crack interviews during placement time which very helpful for students. The faculty will provide every possible help to get selected for the interview.
From semester 1 itself, students are eligible for summer internships with companies like DE Shaw, Acresium, JP Morgan and Chase, Marsh coming in with various profiles. The highest stipend offered is 1.45 lacks an average being about 25 thousand. From trimester 4 onwards you become eligible for Final placements. About 160-170 companies come in total for the placement process and the highest package is about 28 lakhs and average about 10 lakhs is offered. Almost 90-95 percent of the students are placed.
Quite a good experience as of now as there is a beautiful balance between academics and extra curricular activities. There are different cells and clubs in ISBM where you learn real life management skills, put whatever you have learnt in your studies. Being a member of lifestyle development cell, I exactly know how important these cells are and may impact on your life.
Firstly I gave CAT and then applied for ISBM, a few days later, got a email that I got selected for the interview process but at the D-Day had to give aptitude exam, wrote an essay , group discussion and then gave interview taken by the President of ISBM.
I applied for the MBA program are granted on the basis of a management level entrance exam like CAT/XAT/MAT. Students have to apply with their entrance scores and academic details like graduation marks etc. The college will invite the shortlisted students for a GDPI round. A merit list is prepared on the basis of all these factors and that's how the entire admission process looks like in our college.
Placements are pretty decent in our college. We got an immense amount of assistance from the placement cell. They have tie-ups with some of the leading businesses of their niche domain. Some of the companies which visited our campus during my batch include brands like TCS, Karvy, Oakland Capital, HDFC, CBRE, etc. The average packages offered were also pretty decent at around 7 LPA.
I absolutely love studying at Yashwantrao Chavan Maharashtra Open University. I get the best faculty possible to teach me the material. Fees is affordable too. If you are thinking of taking admission here, you should.
College is very good. Faculty is world class . Management too is good . But i would warn you that all depends on you . Dont think they will feed you too the mouth. I would rather say the foor is ossom but you will have to use your hands to eat it.
