Srinivas Institute of Management Studies (SIMS) understands that the MBA program is not only for learning the contents of books but more importantly it’s about learning by experience and exposure. In order to fulfill this requirement, SIMS has developed various value additions to the course content. These value additions are the contribution by the faculty members from their learning in Industry and academia over the years. With these value additions students can enlighten themselves with practical outlook of the industry.
The newly admitted students for the MBA program come from various disciplinary backgrounds like commerce, arts and science. It is required that the platform is set for the students in such a way that heterogeneity in the disciplinary backgrounds of the students can be minimized and they can be oriented towards the management education. A week long orientation program has been designed in SIMS to fulfill this objective.
