Director's Message

The business world, since the pandemic, has changed hugely, bringing forth a multitude of changes, challenges, and complexities. We at SIBM, Pune enable the students to take on these challenges with the objective being, to deliver value to the organizations they will join.

SIBM, Pune has all that is needed to make us stand out as one of the finest B schools in the country. With a legacy of 45 + years, it has evolved consistently to not just enable our students to meet challenges but to anticipate them. Our top notch full-time and visiting faculty members, our dedicated and illustrious alumni, the best quality students who have a "never say die attitude" and the world class infrastructure surrounded by nature's greenery makes SIBM, Pune a unique and most sought after destination for corporates, when they hunt for the best talent to join them. One prime reason for the traditional recruiters and new companies to head for our campus is due to the talent power house that we have i.e. "The High Quality Students". Being a student driven B school, the student councils own and manage several aspects including corporate relations, sports and cultural activities, social responsibility. Even placements are taken care by the student council under the guidance of the Director - SIBM, Pune.

We at SIBM, Pune have been perceptive to the changing times. Right since the inception in 1978 we have been constantly exploring and have been innovative in changing the curricula as per the needs of the industry. Even the present MBA - Innovation and Entrepreneurship programme is one of the unique programmes that we have started which no other Indian B school offers. Be it the case based pedagogy or introduction of role plays in the class or the scenario based learning, we have always been innovative in bringing the best practices into the teaching- learning process.

We have an enviable and eminent global network of faculty members and we continue to ensure that our network becomes bigger and better. This not only gives us the edge to offer short term and long term Management Development Programmes but also helps us to run executive programmes for people from the Industry. The Institute is also well placed to deliver consulting services, including commissioned research for corporates. The research output by faculty and students academically is also impressive. The support extended to the Institute by alumni is simply amazing, whether it is in selecting students, placements, or imparting cutting edge, contemporary business knowledge and skills.
