College campus is large enough.

Campus visitors from Microsoft, Dabur, JP Morgan Chase and Company, Goldman Sachs, and DE Shaw. 200 candidates were hired. Microsoft's top domestic package is Rs. 45 Lacs, and the typical is Rs. 21 Lacs. Finance, Sales and Marketing, Consulting, International Business, IT, Analytics, and Trade are among the available profiles. I intend to work for a reputable trade company like Cargill, Olam International, or Cofico after receiving my degree.
Infrastructure: The college does not have its boys hostel it has three girls hostels of its own they have tie ups with private hostels there are hostel which offer you a room at 90,000 to hostels where the price is 2,75,000 the food is good in my hostel I would recommend a first year student to stay in a hostel for a year then shift to a flat.
Faculty: International Business MBA is the need of the hour. Has emerging career prospects. In the course curriculum, the first year covers courses from all domains of marketing, finance, supply chain, operations, and human resources.

Things you must know before applying to SIBM Pune.
Placements: At SIBM Pune, placements are something that a student doesn't need to care about, owing to a 43-year-old rich legacy that the brand carries with it. We have seen a consistent increase in placement performance since its inception. There has been an impeccable record of 100% placements, both for summers and final placement for the batch of 2021 and 2020 respectively. We had a total of 87 pre-placement offers out of the total of 186 offers made, for the batch of 2020, which explains the gravity of placements at SIBM, Pune. We have the presence of some of the biggest brands like RB, Godrej, RIL, IBM, KPMG, ABInBev and L&T to be named a few, who opened diverse profiles for students across different specializations like Operations, Finance, Marketing, and HR. The highest package offered was? 34.26 LPA and the average package was? 20.14 LPA for the batch of 2020. The summer internship recruitment process saw the presence of many big companies despite the restriction due to the COVID pandemic. The official internship report for the batch of 2022 is yet to be published, so I advise all the aspirants to stay tuned to get first-hand update.
Infrastructure: SIBM, Pune has one of the best campuses in the country, situated in the picturesque location of pulchritudinous Lavale hills. We have the best-in-class infrastructure and facilities, which go a long way to make sure that the students get a productive campus life as well as academic rigor. We have access to the central library of Symbiosis International, which has a huge collection of books, journals, and reports. We also have access to other sophisticated systems like Prowess IQ, Power BI, Bloomberg Terminal, EBSCO, etc., which helps us in research work and data analysis for various corporate competitions. SIBM Pune is one of those elite institutes, for which, almost every corporate competition is open. This provides us with another unique opportunity for learning & development. The campus is Wi-Fi enabled. We have modern classrooms, an auditorium, a healthcare facility, sports facilities like cricket, football, basketball ground, tennis court, squash court and swimming pool. You name it and we have it. The MNC, amphitheater, and plush green surrounding just act as a cherry on a cake. The hostel services are another thing to boast about, which can be seen in the movies like bodyguards and OTT series like Hostel Dayz, the shooting of which happened on our campus hostel. The quality of food is much better than other institutes.
Faculty: The pedagogy at SIBM Pune is designed to give you the knowledge and understanding about every specialisation, with some inclination towards your majors. The USP of SIBM Pune lies in the fact that students are required to choose their specialisation in the first semester itself, which helps them build up their profile and converge their thoughts for the future. The subjects like Business Analytics, Supply Chain Management, Legal Aspects of Business, Research methodology, R programming, along with specialisation subjects provides a perfect amalgam of theoretical and practical ones. We have a case-based approach for every subject. We have been provided with best-in-class faculty, who have rich experience of working in the industry as well as in academics. This comes in handy to understand the concepts and apply them to solve an actual business problem.
Other: While I was working in the construction industry, I knew that, along with the technical expertise, I would require the management knowledge to solve the problems and help in improving the profit margins in the business. I lacked the knowledge when it came to certain important concepts in the field of operations. That's when I decided that an MBA in operations from a well-reputed institute would help me bridge the gap and improve my understanding. Also, an MBA programme at SIBM Pune had a unique structure with would provide me with the knowledge, not only in the field of operations but also in the other areas of management, which is highly important in this VUCA world. SIBM Pune is known to be a student-driven institute, where everything is handled and managed by the students. This provides an experience to be a responsible manager even before joining the corporate world. Being a part of the Aspirant Relations Team at SIBM Pune, who is responsible for the aspirant connect as well as the entire admissions process, allowed me to interact and help the aspirant community in every possible way. There are numerous events and competitions happening to engage us throughout the year. This includes Coffee with SIBM, Transcend, E-summit, Symbiosis Premier League, and many more.

Wonderful life experience at Symbiosis.
Placements: The placement cell is average; I'm not satisfied with their activeness, but they know how to manage students well, and there are several emails you receive regarding the internship. The internship opportunity here is very vast and also very active. You can do a lot of internships on campus to gain experience.
Infrastructure: The facilities and the department are very up to par. I love that everything is being managed and maintained so well. The hostel is also very nice, and the cleanliness is up to par. The mess food is okay, and a proper weekly menu is there for the mess. If you don't like anything or have any suggestions regarding the food, you can simply post a letter.
Faculty: The teachers are very interactive; they also try to make introverted students comfortable asking questions and clearing their doubts. They are really sweet and full of knowledge; they know how to handle the candidates in the best possible way. They are also concerned about the future. And also suggest a lot of futile advice.
