Here is what the brainy creature’s a.k.a students have to say about the campus and infrastructure of thecollege. Varenya Vadlamani, MBA I (Finance) The infrastructure at SIBM Pune is definitely one of the most breathtaking features here, second only to the view from my window. My favorite infrastructural feature is the amphitheater. The exhilarating view from the Amphitheatre at night will definitely be one of those things that I will cherish forever. All the nights spent listening to songs and singing there will be at the forefront of my memories at SIBM Pune. For a first timer living away from home, SIBM Pune offers a „home away from home‟ experience. The hostels are very well equipped with easily accessible drinking water, hot water for the rooms and a common TV room. The simple little things that are done to make us feel at home sometimes tend to overwhelm me. From the complimentary midnight chai given during exams to the special shuttle buses to the city, SIBM Pune definitely goes the extra mile to make us comfortable. The campus also offers great recreational facilities. The cricket and football grounds, basketball court, table tennis, squash courts and tennis courts are absolutely world class. But of course, the hectic course doesn‟t allow us to use them too much. The amphitheater style classrooms equipped with projectors and sounds systems give us a truly professional experience in class. Learning in SIBM Pune is a continuous process and our surroundings help us to make the most of it!
Shawn Francis, MBA I (Finance)Life at SIBM Pune can be really hectic, even though we live amongst the clouds on beautiful hill in a 300 acre campus. My day starts early in the morning when I head to the gymnasium. There is the option of playing either a game of table tennis or pool or a session of aerobics in the recreation center. The remaining part of the day is taken up by lectures and assignments, brainstorming sessions, quizzes and the likes. After a long day, the guys unwind by playing a game of football under the flood lights and some of the girls enjoy a swim in the pool or play foosball. Many a time, movies areplayed in the auditorium which provides a breather from the hectic schedule, which comprises of studies and various competitions. That is life at SIBM Pune. Fast paced and fun. But moreimportantly, one in which you have the satisfaction of going to bed, knowing that today you are a little bit better today than what you were yesterday.

This is what the students studying at SIBM Pune in different specializations have to say about theirexperiences so far in their respective specialization. Mahim Mongia, MBA II (Human Resources) A career in HR can be one of the most challenging, with a tremendous scope for faster growth in a growing competitive economy. While technology, systems and strategies can be easily replicated, human capital is difficult to replace and hence the fight for talent in the Indian industry. The talent pool of an organization and its HR systems enable effective implementation of strategy. These HR systems broadly include all stages of employee lifecycle right from recruitment, selection, induction to training and development, performance management, compensation, industrial and employee relations. An HR strategy comprising of these systems is then aligned to the business strategy. To enable this strategy, capable professionals are required and hence an institute like SIBM Pune; whose HR specialization is considered by the industry to be among the top 3 courses ( along with XLRI and TISS) in India; grooms future HR leaders. This is further validated by the large number of SIBM Pune alumni in HR leadership positions across global organizations. Highly experienced faculty imparting practical exposure, live projects, industry ready syllabus, workshops and lectures by industry experts- these things add to the solid foundation companies look for in HR managers. An excellent placement with varied profiles is then an obvious outcome of a rigorous yet fun-filled course. The older administration-intensive HR is giving way to the new strategic- value add HR. This era has no scope for past apprehensions like HR managers not becoming CEOs. HR as a profession is continuously evolving and so by choosing HR in SIBM Pune, you can be a part of that change.
Ashish Chabbra, MBA II (Marketing) Many would contend, the basis for marketing is the 4 Ps by PhilipKotler, but, for gaining a comprehensive understanding of the field,one more „P‟ is needed, that is, Passion. Marketing in simple words isabout knowing the pulse of the customer- about how you know what to offer, how to communicate with them and how best to deliver results in terms of revenue. An important aspect in the study of the beautiful subject is the dynamic nature of the consumer preference, acceptance and taste.So, the study is ever evolving and thus more interesting continually. Figuratively speaking, it is about having your ear to the ground and eyes to the sky, all the time! A successful marketer is not justreactive to the competitor‟s activities, but, also proactive to ensure the first mover‟s advantage is made full use of.Marketing at SIBM Pune in particular is one of the best decisions thatI personally took. Here learning takes place through various mediumsto ensure that the understanding is consistent with what is intended. The experienced faculty, both in-house and from the corporate, use a mix of methodologies, from handholding at the formative stage,to, throwing you in the deep sea- as the grades depend upon the live market based assignments and projects. Apart from the field and off-field assignments, corporate projects are available for students to apply to, and provide ample opportunity to learn and win accolades.The well-stocked library and the online databases available on thecampus bring the opportunities to learn, to another level altogether.This is exceedingly well complemented with real life cases andexperiences shared by the faculty who have spent enough time in theindustry to supplement the lessons with anecdotes of their own.
Kedar Bothe, MBA II (Operations)The Operations batch at SIBM Pune has been a trendsetter when it comesto academic discipline with due focus on knowledge and concepts that are learnt and implemented as well.

I have tweeted something below I overheard while I was sitting on one of the window panes of aStudents’ Council team room. Nitin Prabhu, MBA II (Operations) “When the student is ready, the teacher appears”, goes an old adage. You never know how and when you learn things. All that is necessary is a willingness to learn. The Students‟ Council at SIBM Pune has been one such experience for me. Having only heard about its activities earlier, I had the first tryst with its activities when I, as an aspirant attended the Admissions Process. I was so overwhelmed by the experience that I at once wanted to be a part of the Council, should I make it to the institute. The great part of the Students‟ Council here is that you are given total freedom in planning, designing and executing important events and activities of the institute like Placements, Admissions, Corporate Interactions, Institute Branding, Guest Lectures etc... With timely inputs and guidance from able faculty members, it is a great learning experience. It allows you to practically apply most of your theoretical learning in classes. And what is more important is that you are encouraged to learn from the mistakes that might happen. The most important take away from being in the council is it inadvertently grooms you well to take on responsibilities and proactively look out for opportunities and make the best use of them. The constant brain storming sessions, the intense detailing in the planning, working on contingencies, the innumerous night outs for ensuring the success of the events have all left us with sweet memories and a great set of colleagues who have become good friends now. In short, being a part of the Council has made us well equipped to handle the demands of the Corporate World.

Student DiariesNow, you may find it a little difficult to believe all that I have told you. After all I’m just a bird. But this iswhat some of the students studying here have to say. Karan Shah, MBA I (Marketing) The first thing that attracted me to SIBM Pune was its campus set amidst the hills of Lavale near Pune, breathtaking is a word that frails in comparison to the sheer beauty of the environs here. But after having spent about two quarters (MBA-speak) here I have found many things that I love about this institute; be it the student-driven culture, the amazing opportunities for learning, the superior facilities for recreation or the unique people that I‟ve met. It is usually the people that define your experience of an academic institute and SIBM Pune has not disappointed. I have learnt more here, over a cup of chai, bouncing ideas around with a trusted group of friends than anywhere else. The synergy of teamwork that I‟ve experienced here is unparalleled. The faculty here goes beyond their traditional roles as facilitators and actively mentor students to achieve greater success. All this combined with a visionary Director who has instituted many positive changes makes me sure that my life at SIBM Pune would be continue to be an enriching experience.
Vaishnavi Nayel, MBA I (Marketing) A new chapter of my life began on 7th June 2010; it marked thestart of my journey at SIBM Pune. It will always be one of the mostsignificant and memorable segments of my life and one that I know I will come to read and reread in the years to come.I remember the day I stepped into the portals of SIBM Pune with my parents, brother and luggage in tow. It was a sunny afternoon in early June and there was a whirlwind of exhilaration and anxiousness brewing within me. I had spent my summer envisaging life at SIBM Pune and since it was the first time I would be living away from home, I was giddy with excitement at the idea of campus life. In the first week, I met more people than I can remember,courtesy: the coffee shop. Soon we were inundated in assignments,foundation tests and presentations. Classes were engaging and kept us on our toes. I joined the Corporate Interface Team, and was involved in a variety of activities throughout the semester. Then,along came Transloocent, our inter-class fest. Waking up at dawn to practice for cultural events, lining up by the poolside to watchrelays in the evenings and lobbying for each of our classes created a remarkable bonhomie amongst us. I‟m just a semester old at SIBM Pune but it truly feels like home, and still my chapter has many a page that need penning. But I‟ve got one and a half years left, and you know what, I have a feeling my ink might just run out!
Sarah Matthews, MBA I (Human Resource) B-schools are a universe of the never-seen, whether you are a quasi- teenager or a 6 year working veteran. SIBM Pune is a portal to learning, experience and glory you wouldn‟t get elsewhere. As a student at this premier institute, this is my attempt to give you an inside view of life within this beautiful campus. SIBM Pune offers an opportunity and not schooling. I have learnt so much more than can be absorbed from books in this institute. Themethodology of teaching that is followed gives me a chance to broaden my thinking and look at every aspect of the problem presented. The enlightening talks of peers, corporate big wig‟s seminars, obscenely difficult case studies, insane night outs, cut throat competition etc. are all a part of the experience that I have had as apart of this college. There is always the „short-of-time‟ syndrome, but hey, that is what management is all about. Being a part of such an eclectic crowd and working in a team with people who are brimming with ideas, an experience that only SIBM Pune can offer. Sonali Deshmukh, MBA I (Finance) Coming to SIBM isn‟t just about getting an MBA degree. It‟s about the whole process of getting to your graduation day. And it‟s one helluva ride! It simply invades your life. My time here has been a frantic and immensely enjoyable melee of activities… making friends, rushing to class, submissions, deadlines, brainstorming and what not. These are the times when you learn about camaraderie, teamwork, meeting deadlines, eating late, sleeping even later, and fighting with friends… And you become addicted to this way of life, which makes you sound professional and a gem of a friend.
Niket Khaitan, MBA I (Finance) Challenging my thinking, that‟s probably what I‟m doing most of thetime at SIBM Pune. Life here is as simple as the process of unlearning and learning, constantly. The breath-taking location and brilliantinfrastructure act as catalysts and give us an unfair advantage in this process of learning.Academics at SIBM Pune are rigorous to say the least and that‟s for a good reason. We believe that a framework for questioning current management practices can only be built on a foundation of strongacademics. The pedagogy at SIBM Pune is built around the principlesof experienced teachers, open ended teaching, and the nurturing of argument. SIBM Pune strongly believes in the all-round development of its students and has arguably the best sports complex of any b-school inthe country. All in all, the brilliance of the students, provoked by the best of teachers, and aided by an awe-inspiring campus results in an MBA experience worth dying for.
