Counted amongst the league of top MBA schools in India, SIIB’s flagship program is the MBA in International Business. Starting out as an initiative under the Symbiosis Umbrella, SIIB was amongst the first institutes in the country to introduce the MBA in International Business. The MBA–International Business is an intensive, two-year, residential, post-graduate degree program, specifically designed for a rewarding career in global business management. This program is a unique blend of theories and practices that prepares the students for domestic markets as well as business on a global platform.
The International Business courses such as foreign languages, trade finance & Forex risk management, foreign trade policy and export management, make this program truly unique and raise it to the level of international status.
Students, who enter the portals of the college, come from diverse academic backgrounds such as engineering, pharmacy, economics, mathematics, chartered accountancy, IT, commerce, and provide a vibrant tone to the program. The first year serves as a churning crucible and creates the basis for understanding business management. All the students are brought together on a level playing field before specializations begins.
Symbiosis Institute of International Business (SIIB) offers an elective system wherein a student can opt for Major courses in any one functional area of specialization (marketing, finance, supply chain management, and human resource).
The semester pattern followed by SIIB ensures that the subjects are covered in detail and every course that is taught, is understood and assessed by the student. A minimum of 15 hours is dedicated to the core subjects (courses) and this is done through class room inputs. Every course under the area of specialization is also covered for the same amount of time. 60% of continuous evaluation for every course, done on a continuous basis, thus ensures a rigorous but rewarding schedule.
Steffen Nevermann says "To create crucibles from which leaders may emerge, schools must put their students in a learning mode that challenges them to accept responsibility for their own education and gives them first-hand appreciation of the application of knowledge and skills to practice."
Symbiosis does exactly that and creates a context that is fertile for leadership.
