As I started my professional journey it was painful for me to part ways with academics – something I truly enjoy and adore. Finally, it was June 2019, when I decided that I am going to take up a professional course. But then, what about job? ..and that’s where I learnt about this excellent MBA Executive programme at Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Pune. “Learning + Earning, Wow! that’s a great combination”, I thought. Since then, there has been no looking back. At SIBM, the thirst that I had for knowledge and learning was quenched. The well-trained faculty, the peer-learning opportunity and thoughtfully designed courses are all the factors that transformed my professional journey. While gaining a rich industry experience of 11+ years, its often required to weed-out some learnings. Executive MBA programme is that, very, plethora of knowledge which not just refreshes our old-school concepts but also adds to the repository and many a times encourages to even unlearn. The design of the course over the semesters is such that, it will help you gain clarity of most industry jargons, decide upon what is it that interests you and get you back to ethics and moral values (Thanks to the well tutored course of Indian Ethos & Values for Management). All in all, I am glad that I am a part of the SIBM, Pune family.

The faculty members are experienced and have immensely rich knowledge of market . The examples shared in the lectures are recent and fit perfectly in the current market scenarios. The course helped me in developing sharper business skills and a 360 degree know-how of the subjects. The course is well designed and ensures dedicated semesters for specialisation. As the semesters proceed, a higher version of the previously taught subjects are introduced which ensures that we remain in touch with the basics while simultaneously proceeding towards the in-depth knowledge of the subjects. Overall, I feel immensely proud in saying that joining this course was one of the best decisions of my life and each minute invested has been worthwhile!

It was the right time for me to get into Executive MBA while I was working as a business analyst in HSBC. As SIBM was offering weekend program which perfectly suited my needs, I was very happy to get enrolled. Over the span of 2.5 years, SIBM uplifted my knowledge and skill sets in various areas which helped me to grow professionally and personally. The syllabus was very well distributed across all the semesters which gave a lot of comfort in learning various subjects.Executive_testimonial Subjects that interested me the most were marketing, business strategy, business communication, accounting and finance, project management and operations. And all the credit for this goes to the faculties of SIBM. The faculties on the campus were very friendly and came with lot of industry experience to impart best in class knowledge to their students. I myself being a full-time entrepreneur now, when I talk with business people, HRs of organisations and CA or CS, I can easily relate to what they talk about because I learned that language and enough depth in those subjects during my course in SIBM. Overall, I found the course is very well organized and a highly recommended for working professionals to sharpen their business skills and open their mind to something new which they have not explored yet. Thank You SIBM and lots of GRATITUDE to all the teachers.
