Hello , Can you please tell me how is the BBA program from SCMS,Pune?
YoungBuzz Counselor - Dear Tarandeep Singh,

• The students are selected after an all India entrance test. We received close to 6000 applications for this course for the current passing batch. Only 240 students were selected from these 6000 aspirants. The intake was the top 4% of the aspirants and therefore a very bright lot.
• Management education has been the forte of Symbiosis. We have drawn from the experiences of our sister institutions and therefore our course did not suffer too much from the process of evolution.
• As you would see from the pedagogy, our course is very intensive in its academic and co-curricular inputs.
• We have tried to ensure that the essence of the curriculum has reached the students through adoption of a multi-pronged methodology of teaching.
• We have ensured reasonable industry exposure through process-mapping exercises and internships.
Lastly, but most importantly the best 'take-away' of being a Symbiosis product comes out of the long-standing commitment to diversity. We firmly believe that we can learn some very important lessons of life from each other. The more varied the perspectives represented, the richer the learning.
• The difference in opinions, convictions, economic background, gender, nationality brings to life to our campus community and fosters tolerance. The environment causes intellectual churning and therefore brings out the best in our students.
