Making a once-in-a-lifetime choice requires careful research.
Truly, one of the biggest challenges when it comes to applying to business schools in India is deciding where you want to go. When I first started looking, it was overwhelming. It was all, where do I start? how do I choose?
But when I started to get a little more strategic about it, things fell in place. By comparing the different categories below, I was able to see how different schools stacked up and ultimately narrowed it down to my dream business school, SIBM-H.
Check out the criteria I used below—then keep them in mind as you’re weighing your own b-school options.
To make this research relevant to most prospective MBA students, I will focus on two parameters; Ranking & Brand value. Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Hyderabad is the flagship institute of Symbiosis International (Deemed University), Pune, so there we have a strong brand value. The University is ranked 247th amongst the top 250 Universities in Asia by QS World ranking agency, so here too we have the prestigious ranking.
I remember on our induction day, Director Dr. Ravi Kumar Jain kicked off the day with a welcome speech which ignited a fire in my mind. That day I discovered more about the diversity and calibre of the faculty, plus their expertise and achievements.
Infrastructure & Location:
Location plays a big role and infrastructure an even bigger role. Located on a 40-acre Campus near Bangalore Highway, SIBM-H is one of the finest institutes I’ve come across. With top-of-the-line amenities such as wi-fi enabled campus, exhaustive library, labs, and garden area; learning was an enjoyable experience. Experience the aura of SIBM-H yourself here.
Industry Linkage & Exposure:
We were given umpteen opportunities to get industrial exposure and expand practical knowledge during the tenure of our course. During the industrial visit to Cogent Glass Limited, we discussed about observations and learning’s inside the plant. During this visit, we were able to apply the theoretical knowledge to practical applications.
The single most important parameter considered by every student before pursuing MBA is Placements. Personally, I felt that placement team at SIBM-H leaves no stone unturned in guiding you towards your dream job profile. Top recruiters namely, Tata, Capgemini, Kotak Mahindra, Reliance come forward every year to offer lucrative packages higher than that offered by traditional recruiters.
Hence, if you’re looking to cultivate ethos in which you can learn, grow, and succeed, SIBM-H is the place to be. Here, you share ideas and experiences with people from all over the world as you shape your future success.
