It’s been more than 6 months that I have been a part of SIMSR. But memories of those days of dilemma are still fresh in my mind, when I had admission letter from different B-Schools and needed to pick one. This decision was as troublesome as it was Crucial in light of the fact that my entire future relied upon it. Even after one has zeroed in on a B-school in the wake of measuring all the pros and cons, one keeps wondering whether decision taken is right or not.
To be completely forthright, I wasn’t exceptionally certain about my decision as well, when I chose SIMSR over other schools. However not long after subsequent to joining the school all my incredulity was supplanted by the awe of the magnificence of Campus and its Infrastructure.
Located in the heart of Mumbai city, the campus is sprawled over 60 acres and is well equipped with sports facilities like gymnasium, squash court, badminton court, open chess board, Olympic size athletic track, football ground etc. The institute has one of the best infrastructures with state of the art classrooms, computer labs and a well-equipped fully computerized library with subscription to e-journals and 90000+ books.
Course curriculum is tailor-made to inculcate managerial skills in students. To motivate and mentor them, School has 80+ well qualified faculties with rich industry and research experience. More than 60 faculties are PHDs and faculty to student ratio is also quite low (1:6) which is quite good and imperative for Student-faculty Interaction. To supplement regular teaching, guest lectures from eminent corporate professionals are conducted from time to time. SIMSR also provide various live projects and summer internship opportunities to students.
At present SIMSR is in a race of gaining AACSB accreditation, which is known for its stringent rules by virtue of which college is getting better day by day. They are also developing their own Bloomberg analytics lab expected to be functional in year 2018 (There are only 13 other such labs across India) which helps student to be industry/job ready.
More than 80% of my batch (PGDM-CORE) has a work experience and are from diverse professional background in view of which one gets the opportunity to hear and take in a great deal about different industries and profiles from the peer group.
College is alive throughout the year with the hustle and bustle of activities and competition organize by 26+ student driven committees which gives ample of opportunity for students to grow professionally and culturally. Membership of such committees promotes and develops leadership qualities in the students. School is not behind in CSR activities as well, “Ankur” the institute’s experiential learning program encourages students to become Social responsible business leaders.
To provide student global exposure, College also has International Immersion programme to give a first-hand experience to students of how business is done in other countries. Students visit various companies and have meetings with senior industry leaders in the foreign country. B-school also has linkages with international universities such as DHBW University (Germany), THI Business School, Ingolstadt, (Germany), University of Applied Science (Austria), University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, (Austria) etc.
With its industry oriented courses and rich alumni base, placements at SIMSR is always one the best among the B-schools. 337 companies from multitude of sectors participated in the campus placements which results in 100% placement with highest domestic package of 21 LPA. Our alumni are excelling professionally holding leadership positions in top notch companies who actively associate in building network and serve as mentors for young Minds.
Also, last yet very noteworthy reason to study here is that, while in SIMSR you will be in a “CITY OF DREAMS” and a financial capital of India which in itself provides one with a huge opportunity to grow in carrier.
