Review of SCDL Pune - Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning.

Placements: There were a maximum of 30 students in each class and approximately 20% of the students in each course. In our course, the highest salary package offered was approximately 25-30 LPA, and the lowest salary package offered was approximately 5-7 LPA. It was a distance learning programme, so no campus placements were held on the college campus. Similarly, there were no such internship opportunities available due to the nature of the course. Top roles offered after graduating depend on the percentage...

Symbiosis, a better place for a working professional.

Placements: They are giving placements for the students studying in distance learning also. It is one of the salient features compared to other B-schools. But they are providing on-campus placements only in line, so students from other parts are not able to participate all the time. Moreover, placements are provided in various sectors such as automobile, information technology, management, corporate, etc, so that we have diversified opportunities.

A good course to join when one is doing a job or pursuing any other professional degree.

Placements: The college does not take the responsibility of placements as it is a distance learning course, but some of the companies like Aramex, Bosch Ltd, Capital, Euro Kids, IN, NIIT, TCS, Reliance Retail, Wills Lifestyle, Wipro and BPOs visit the college every year and provide placement assistance.

Infrastructure: Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning is part of the main college, Symbiosis. Regular colleges are there in Pune, Delhi, Bangalore and Nashik. But when I talk about Centre of Distance Learning, it has helpin...

The review of Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning.

Placements: Everyone gets placed unless they've opted out of the placement process either voluntarily or by the college, for violating the rules of the placement process. The highest CTC goes up to 30 LPA, and the lowest CTC goes as down as 7 LPA. SIBM Pune provides state-of-the-art infrastructure to its students. These facilities go a long way in ensuring a productive campus life and providing a perfect backdrop for academic pursuits. SIBM Pune has a new residential campus at Lavale village.
