A Bird’s Eye View

Page 2: SIBM Pune E-Brochure

Hi. I am Spidgey. I am one of the many sky dwellers hovering over the scenic

hills of Lavale. My fellow fliers tell me that this place is the residential

campus of a top B school but truly speaking, it appears more like a hill

station to me. The brainy creatures here who they call students have a ball

of a time on this campus.

Getting a bird’s eye view is a lot of fun at SIBM Pune. You would find me

looking at you through the window panes of classrooms when the classes

are going on, in the canteen where students grab a quick bite so that they

do not miss their lectures, at the coffee shop and chaatwala where students

flock like us birds, near the hostels and the recreation center where students head to after college

hours. Life is truly amazing at the picturesque SIBM Pune campus.

With such an environment here, there is no doubt that this is the place where business leaders truly

evolve. Established in 1978, SIBM Pune is the flagship management institute of the Symbiosis

International University. SIBM Pune started out 33 years ago and is now counted amongst the leading B-

schools in India. SIBM Pune has also been consistently ranked among the best B-schools in India.

Combining theory with practical business, classroom teaching with Management Development

Programmes, SIBM Pune offers its students a powerful mix of academic and contemporary business

As I was sitting outside the Director’s cabin, here’s what I could hear. Perhaps, it is a message to all

those of you, who are aspiring to be a part of this institute.

Dear aspiring students,

As you are applying for SNAP (Symbiosis National Aptitude Test) to be

held on 19th December, 2010 and have given SIBM Pune as a preferred

want to enter SIBM Pune.

At SIBM Pune, I assure you of an academic environment supported by lots

of students driven activities. Ours is the only institute which offers

beginning with 7th June 2011, students will be given in-depth knowledge

of the above functional areas so that they make an informed choice for

Situated 16 kms from the city of Pune, 2,200 feet above sea level across 300 acres of land, the students

here say that studying in this place is truly an exhilarating experience.

Here is what the brainy creature’s a.k.a students have to say about the campus and infrastructure of the


Varenya Vadlamani, MBA I (Finance)

The infrastructure at SIBM Pune is definitely one of the most

breathtaking features here, second only to the view from my

window. My favorite infrastructural feature is the amphitheater.

The exhilarating view from the Amphitheatre at night will

definitely be one of those things that I will cherish forever. All the

nights spent listening to songs and singing there will be at the

forefront of my memories at SIBM Pune.

For a first timer living away from home, SIBM Pune offers a „home

away from home‟ experience. The hostels are very well equipped

with easily accessible drinking water, hot water for the rooms and a

common TV room. The simple little things that are done to make us

feel at home sometimes tend to overwhelm me. From the

complimentary midnight chai given during exams to the special

shuttle buses to the city, SIBM Pune definitely goes the extra mile

to make us comfortable.

The campus also offers great recreational facilities. The cricket and

football grounds, basketball court, table tennis, squash courts and

tennis courts are absolutely world class. But of course, the hectic

course doesn‟t allow us to use them too much.

The amphitheater style classrooms equipped with projectors and

sounds systems give us a truly professional experience in class.

Learning in SIBM Pune is a continuous process and our surroundings

help us to make the most of it!

Page 6: SIBM Pune E-Brochure

Shawn Francis, MBA I (Finance)

Life at SIBM Pune can be really hectic, even though we live amongst

the clouds on beautiful hill in a 300 acre campus. My day starts

early in the morning when I head to the gymnasium. There is the

option of playing either a game of table tennis or pool or a session

of aerobics in the recreation center. The remaining part of the day

is taken up by lectures and assignments, brainstorming sessions,

quizzes and the likes. After a long day, the guys unwind by playing

a game of football under the flood lights and some of the girls

enjoy a swim in the pool or play foosball. Many a time, movies are

played in the auditorium which provides a breather from the hectic

schedule, which comprises of studies and various competitions.

That is life at SIBM Pune. Fast paced and fun. But more

importantly, one in which you have the satisfaction of going to bed,

knowing that today you are a little bit better today than what you

were yesterday.

Strong Foundation of a rising dream

This institute attracts students from diverse educational backgrounds from across the world. In order to

bring all of them on a common platform, they undergo a Pre-induction course before joining. The pre-

induction courseware helps them gain solid ground in the basics of subjects to which they have not been

exposed to earlier. Thus, engineers are thorough with the basics of economics and accounting whereas

commerce graduates are well-versed with the fundamentals of statistics by the time regular classes

start. .Some courses are also made available to the students on the institute’s intranet. The students

thus get ample opportunity to supplement their classroom learning with self-reading in the form of e-

learning through these courses.

Unceasing Quest for Knowledge

In their quest for knowledge, the students here arrange symposia on different subjects and invite

eminent speakers to deliver lectures. These events benefit both the professionals and students by the

exchange of thoughts during these seminars and lectures. Some of the events organized by the students

are as follows:

Alpaviram- Contemplating Vision 2020

Inaugurated by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, Former President of India, Alpaviram –Contemplating Vision 2020

was organized by the Corporate Interface Team at Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Pune.

The event is about Vision 2020 set for the country by the former president himself. As we are only a

decade away from the year 2020, Alpaviram signifies a pause; a pause to take a stock of the current

situation and what needs to be done to achieve vision 2020.


Transcend is SIBM Pune's annual cultural extravaganza. Students from various management institutes

compete in diverse competitions ranging from ad making and fashion shows to case studies and quizzes.

It is a colorful event where a sense of camaraderie prevails and everyone has a gala time.

Coffee with SIBM

Coffee with SIBM is a unique mentorship program for MBA aspirants. SIBM Pune students visit various

cities and reach out to aspirants by helping them in choosing the right career path. The aspirants also

interact with the students and gain an insight into the institute. Last year, this initiative was conducted

by the Aspirant Relations Team of the Students’ Council in 18 cities.

Did you Know?? The classes are designed amphitheatre style, which means it becomes very difficult to

sleep in class

This is what the students studying at SIBM Pune in different specializations have to say about their

experiences so far in their respective specialization.

Mahim Mongia, MBA II (Human Resources)

A career in HR can be one of the most challenging, with a

tremendous scope for faster growth in a growing competitive economy.

While technology, systems and strategies can be easily replicated,

human capital is difficult to replace and hence the fight for talent in the

Indian industry. The talent pool of an organization and its HR systems

enable effective implementation of strategy. These HR systems broadly

include all stages of employee lifecycle right from recruitment, selection,

induction to training and development, performance management,

compensation, industrial and employee relations. An HR strategy

comprising of these systems is then aligned to the business strategy.

To enable this strategy, capable professionals are required and hence an

institute like SIBM Pune; whose HR specialization is considered by the

industry to be among the top 3 courses ( along with XLRI and TISS) in

India; grooms future HR leaders.

This is further validated by the large number of SIBM Pune alumni in HR

leadership positions across global organizations. Highly experienced

faculty imparting practical exposure, live projects, industry ready

syllabus, workshops and lectures by industry experts- these things add to

the solid foundation companies look for in HR managers. An excellent

placement with varied profiles is then an obvious outcome of a rigorous

yet fun-filled course.

The older administration-intensive HR is giving way to the new strategic-

value add HR. This era has no scope for past apprehensions like HR

managers not becoming CEOs. HR as a profession is continuously evolving

and so by choosing HR in SIBM Pune, you can be a part of that change.

Page 14: SIBM Pune E-Brochure

Ashish Chabbra, MBA II (Marketing)

Many would contend, the basis for marketing is the 4 Ps by Philip

Kotler, but, for gaining a comprehensive understanding of the field,

one more „P‟ is needed, that is, Passion. Marketing in simple words is

about knowing the pulse of the customer- about how you know what

to offer, how to communicate with them and how best to deliver

results in terms of revenue.

An important aspect in the study of the beautiful subject is the

dynamic nature of the consumer preference, acceptance and taste.

So, the study is ever evolving and thus more interesting continually.

Figuratively speaking, it is about having your ear to the ground and

eyes to the sky, all the time! A successful marketer is not just

reactive to the competitor‟s activities, but, also proactive to ensure

the first mover‟s advantage is made full use of.

Marketing at SIBM Pune in particular is one of the best decisions that

I personally took. Here learning takes place through various mediums

to ensure that the understanding is consistent with what is intended.

The experienced faculty, both in-house and from the corporate, use

a mix of methodologies, from handholding at the formative stage,

to, throwing you in the deep sea- as the grades depend upon the live

market based assignments and projects.

Apart from the field and off-field assignments, corporate projects

are available for students to apply to, and provide ample

opportunity to learn and win accolades.

The well-stocked library and the online databases available on the

campus bring the opportunities to learn, to another level altogether.

This is exceedingly well complemented with real life cases and

experiences shared by the faculty who have spent enough time in the

industry to supplement the lessons with anecdotes of their own.

Page 15: SIBM Pune E-Brochure

Kedar Bothe, MBA II (Operations)

The Operations batch at SIBM Pune has been a trendsetter when it comes

to academic discipline with due focus on knowledge and concepts that are

learnt and implemented as well.

The course structure for Operations at SIBM Pune tries to cover all

aspects and industry practices related to Operations Management.

Subjects like Operations Management, Logistics and Supply Chain

Management, Total Quality Management, World Class Manufacturing,

Basic & Advanced Operations Research, Manufacturing Resource Planning,

Materials Management, Six Sigma focus on Manufacturing sector. There

are subjects like Operations Management in Services, Enterprise Resource

Planning and Project Management which focus on Services sector too.

Thus one gets to see the holistic view of how businesses are run. Apart

from usual academic schedule, students take up projects in a given

industry as a part of 'Learning Lab' initiative.

The 'Operations Club', a student‟s initiative conducts case study

competitions and guest lectures from various companies - the prominent

ones being i2 Technologies Pvt Ltd, Reliance Industries Ltd., Motorola

Inc. etc. Plant visits like Hindustan Coca Cola Beverages Pvt. Ltd. (HCCB)

Pune, Mahindra Automotive (Renault) Nashik etc are conducted to

facilitate better understanding of concepts.

The Operations batch of 2011 has people from diverse educational

backgrounds. There is also a healthy mix of freshers and students with

prior work experience in various sectors along with budding

entrepreneurs, which facilitates quality interaction and peer learning.

Page 16: SIBM Pune E-Brochure

Hakim Allanabanda, MBA II (Finance)

Finance at SIBM Pune equips you with the entire gamut of skill

sets of knowledge, learning and application to thrive in the

financial world. The well planned curriculum coupled with

hands on experience of analytical tools provides an ideal mix of

both classroom and practical training. Students are equipped

with core finance subjects such as Corporate Finance,

Commercial Banking along with the rationale and present

status of financial intermediation right from the first

semester. Courses on company valuation and live working

sessions of the stock exchange only add to the learning and give

students a feel of the financial world. Be it interaction with

some of the best faculty, exposure to latest software‟s and

familiarization with the latest trends, all are an integral part

of the program, chalked out to give you the best possible

experience of a B-school.

live projects, which not only give you exposure to the actual industry

but also help you in making an informed decision on the appropriate

branch of Finance you want to work with. Above all, the chance of

tomorrow‟s corporate world provide the ideal motivating surrounding

and peer learning setup.

A Student Driven Institute

SIBM Pune takes great pride in being a student-centric institute. Students here are entrusted with

resources and responsibilities early on in their academic career. They are encouraged to take important

administrative and policy decisions that sculpt their future and that of the Institute. This facilitates their

all-round development over and above academic performance. The Students' Council is one such

student body responsible and accountable for numerous activities on the campus throughout the year.

What follows below is a brief description of what each team in the Students’ Council does.

The Alumni Team (AT) maintains the crucial link between the Institute and the 31 batches of

management professionals that it has produced over the years. It ensures constant and fruitful

interaction with the 4700+ strong alumni while at the same time strengthening their bond with their

alma mater. In addition to annual reunions, the team organizes alumni meets and dinners across the

country to initiate and encourage communication among the alumni.

The Aspirant Relations Team (ART) is the student interface for those aspiring to join the Institute. With

wide ranging activities like iAspire - the online portal, nationwide brand building campaigns, career

counseling sessions like Coffee With SIBM, Sizzlers & Silhouettes, online buddy programs and help lines,

it aims to make the transition to student life at SIBM Pune smoother. B-Quizzed @ SIBM is a National

Level Business Quiz conceptualized by ART, aimed at all undergraduate (UG) students and MBA aspirants

to provide them with a glimpse of the Business World. The ART is also responsible for designing and

executing the entire admissions process.

The Corporate Interface Team (CIT) facilitates the interaction between the students and the corporate

world and augments the knowledge base of the students by establishing educative and beneficial

interaction between the two sides. Through various guest lectures and corporate interactions that are

conducted regularly, the team ensures that the students are always updated with the trends in the


The Co-Curricular Team (Co-CT) encourages and nurtures the overall development of personality and

character in the students and also encourages them to participate in various management and cultural

events in B-Schools across India. Through its events and activities, the team ensures that there is never a

dull day in the life of an SIBM Pune student.

The Information Technology Team (ITT) harnesses the full potential of IT to assist efficient knowledge

dissemination to the students. It is responsible for procuring software and imparting training in tune

with the latest industry trends.

The Placement Advisory Team (PAT) focuses on securing the best summer internships and job

opportunities for every student in the Institute. It has broken records year after year to bring the most

respected companies on campus to ensure the skills and talent of the students are well aligned with the

profile offered.

Research and Scholastic Development Team (RSDT) looks at identifying, conceptualizing, and executing

research projects that have the potential to contribute to the ever changing landscape of business


Centre for Excellence (CFE) is a student’s driven initiative to provide consultancy to Self Help Groups and

help them overcome their shortcomings related to financial, marketing and operational activities. The

students thus handle immense responsibilities as their recommendations affect the livelihood of the

SHG members. CFE is working on GI (Geographical Indication) registration for Paithani Sarees and is also

an exclusive consulting and training partner for the Yashaswini Abhiyaan run by MP MrsSupriya Sule.

I have tweeted something below I overheard while I was sitting on one of the window panes of a

Students’ Council team room.

Nitin Prabhu, MBA II (Operations)

“When the student is ready, the teacher appears”, goes an old adage. You

never know how and when you learn things. All that is necessary is a

willingness to learn.

The Students‟ Council at SIBM Pune has been one such experience for me.

Having only heard about its activities earlier, I had the first tryst with its

activities when I, as an aspirant attended the Admissions Process. I was so

overwhelmed by the experience that I at once wanted to be a part of the

Council, should I make it to the institute.

The great part of the Students‟ Council here is that you are given total

freedom in planning, designing and executing important events and

activities of the institute like Placements, Admissions, Corporate

Interactions, Institute Branding, Guest Lectures etc... With timely inputs

and guidance from able faculty members, it is a great learning

experience. It allows you to practically apply most of your theoretical

learning in classes. And what is more important is that you are

encouraged to learn from the mistakes that might happen.

The most important take away from being in the council is it

inadvertently grooms you well to take on responsibilities and proactively

look out for opportunities and make the best use of them. The constant

brain storming sessions, the intense detailing in the planning, working on

contingencies, the innumerous night outs for ensuring the success of the

events have all left us with sweet memories and a great set of colleagues

who have become good friends now. In short, being a part of the Council

has made us well equipped to handle the demands of the Corporate

Placements - Challenges Await You

Student Diaries

Now, you may find it a little difficult to believe all that I have told you. After all I’m just a bird. But this is

what some of the students studying here have to say.

Karan Shah, MBA I (Marketing)

The first thing that attracted me to SIBM Pune was its campus set

amidst the hills of Lavale near Pune, breathtaking is a word that frails

in comparison to the sheer beauty of the environs here. But after

having spent about two quarters (MBA-speak) here I have found many

things that I love about this institute; be it the student-driven culture,

the amazing opportunities for learning, the superior facilities for

recreation or the unique people that I‟ve met. It is usually the people

that define your experience of an academic institute and SIBM Pune

has not disappointed. I have learnt more here, over a cup of chai,

bouncing ideas around with a trusted group of friends than anywhere

else. The synergy of teamwork that I‟ve experienced here is

unparalleled. The faculty here goes beyond their traditional roles as

facilitators and actively mentor students to achieve greater success.

All this combined with a visionary Director who has instituted many

positive changes makes me sure that my life at SIBM Pune would be

continue to be an enriching experience.

Page 23: SIBM Pune E-Brochure

Vaishnavi Nayel, MBA I (Marketing)

A new chapter of my life began on 7th June 2010; it marked the

start of my journey at SIBM Pune. It will always be one of the most

significant and memorable segments of my life and one that I know

I will come to read and reread in the years to come.

I remember the day I stepped into the portals of SIBM Pune with my

parents, brother and luggage in tow. It was a sunny afternoon in

early June and there was a whirlwind of exhilaration and

anxiousness brewing within me. I had spent my summer envisaging

life at SIBM Pune and since it was the first time I would be living

away from home, I was giddy with excitement at the idea of

campus life.

In the first week, I met more people than I can remember,

courtesy: the coffee shop. Soon we were inundated in assignments,

foundation tests and presentations. Classes were engaging and kept

us on our toes. I joined the Corporate Interface Team, and was

involved in a variety of activities throughout the semester. Then,

along came Transloocent, our inter-class fest. Waking up at dawn to

practice for cultural events, lining up by the poolside to watch

relays in the evenings and lobbying for each of our classes created a

remarkable bonhomie amongst us.

I‟m just a semester old at SIBM Pune but it truly feels like home,

and still my chapter has many a page that need penning. But I‟ve

got one and a half years left, and you know what, I have a feeling

my ink might just run out!

Page 24: SIBM Pune E-Brochure

Sarah Matthews, MBA I (Human Resource)

B-schools are a universe of the never-seen, whether you are a quasi-

teenager or a 6 year working veteran. SIBM Pune is a portal to

learning, experience and glory you wouldn‟t get elsewhere. As a

student at this premier institute, this is my attempt to give you an

inside view of life within this beautiful campus.

SIBM Pune offers an opportunity and not schooling. I have learnt so

much more than can be absorbed from books in this institute. The

methodology of teaching that is followed gives me a chance to broaden

my thinking and look at every aspect of the problem presented.

The enlightening talks of peers, corporate big wig‟s seminars,

obscenely difficult case studies, insane night outs, cut throat

competition etc. are all a part of the experience that I have had as a

part of this college. There is always the „short-of-time‟ syndrome, but

hey, that is what management is all about.

Being a part of such an eclectic crowd and working in a team with

people who are brimming with ideas, an experience that only SIBM

Pune can offer.

Sonali Deshmukh, MBA I (Finance)

Coming to SIBM isn‟t just about getting an MBA degree. It‟s about the

whole process of getting to your graduation day. And it‟s one helluva

ride! It simply invades your life. My time here has been a frantic and

immensely enjoyable melee of activities… making friends, rushing to

class, submissions, deadlines, brainstorming and what not. These are

the times when you learn about camaraderie, teamwork, meeting

deadlines, eating late, sleeping even later, and fighting with friends…

And you become addicted to this way of life, which makes you sound

professional and a gem of a friend.

Niket Khaitan, MBA I (Finance)

Challenging my thinking, that‟s probably what I‟m doing most of the

time at SIBM Pune. Life here is as simple as the process of unlearning

and learning, constantly. The breath-taking location and brilliant

infrastructure act as catalysts and give us an unfair advantage in this

process of learning.

Academics at SIBM Pune are rigorous to say the least and that‟s for a

good reason. We believe that a framework for questioning current

management practices can only be built on a foundation of strong

academics. The pedagogy at SIBM Pune is built around the principles

of experienced teachers, open ended teaching, and the nurturing of


SIBM Pune strongly believes in the all-round development of its

students and has arguably the best sports complex of any b-school in

the country. All in all, the brilliance of the students, provoked by the

best of teachers, and aided by an awe-inspiring campus results in an

MBA experience worth dying for.
