Every journey begins with a vision and a thirst for knowledge, and for me, stepping into SIIB was the first step towards achieving my goals. Before enrolling, I was aware that SIIB is one of the premier B-schools in the country, making it one of the most popular MBA institutions in Pune. It strives to provide a sound academic basis and the rigor required by the corporate world. After joining the institution, one goes through various experiences, and each student has a unique story about their life at SIIB.
Beyond the plethora of academic knowledge, life at SIIB is a transformative expedition that not only enhances managerial skills but also nurtures your personal and emotional growth. It will impart so many changes in your routine that you will notice a difference between before and after your 2-years of MBA. Starting with teaching social responsibility to potential managers, the SIIB Kshitij – ISR committee works towards community development in various disciplines, including sustainability, waste management, education, and the environment. The project positively impacts society, with over 100 students focused and consistently working hard to bring meaningful change. Speaking of the student’s emphasis on social responsibility, life at SIIB will involve a plethora of duties for everyone, allowing them to feel empowered and learn new things. Three core committees handle the principal functions of the college: Corporate Relations Committee, Alumni Relations Committee, and Public Relations & Media Committee. All these committees aim to train and place students as per their specific domains, build a strong alumni network and promote the university. Life at SIIB is further enriched through domain-specific abilities for organizing a variety of quizzes, presentations, case study competitions, and guest lectures by experts in their respective professions who guide and develop students for their respective career paths. SIIB has various clubs dedicated to enlightenment of students in specific domain. The Marketing Club: Markadiction, Finance Club: FinEquity, Supply Chain Management Club: Aarohan, and Human Resources Club: HR-Connect are the four clubs responsible for inculcating specialization-related knowledge and skills. We also have Agri-Business Club: Agri summit and Energy & Environment Club: ENECON, both with an emphasis on Agri-Business and Energy and Environment programs.
Aside from academics and skill development, there are various competitions managed and conducted by the sports committee of SIIB, emphasizing the fitness aspects of student’s life beyond the classroom learnings. SIIB also offers a wide range of delightful events coordinated by the Annual Cultural Committee, IGNISENSE and the Students Activity Committee, SPARSH. These committees play a significant role in delivering a sense of refreshment to the overworked MBA life.
A student may arrive with knowledge but the journey they embark on equips them with experiences that develop their abilities and skills which collectively shape them from students to corporate professionals.
