Hey SIMC-B Aspirants,

Consider the following facts before you join:

  1. The Average package is NOT 5 Lakhs as mentioned. Only a couple of people have got 5 Lakhs. Only 6 out of 51 people have gotten placed as of Today (15th Feb 2011).
  2. Yes, the placements depends a lot on the effort of the Placements Team, and we do have a very dedicated team working on it.
  3. Faculty wise, there are some great visiting faculty coming in once in a while, but other than that, there's nothing much to write home about.
  4. The facilities - Classrooms, Hostel, Mess and the Campus at large are really good, and are at par with International Standards. (Wifi Sucks tho )
  5. This MBA is good for Media Planning, Account Planning (The more Strategic Part of Advertising. DO NOT come in if you want to make Creative/Copywriting your future.
  6. You DO NOT need an MBA in Advertising or PR to make it big in the Media Industry. MOST of the guys working in reputed agencies do not have an MBA in Ad/PR. If you really want an MBA, try it out with MBA Marketing, as most of them have that background.Try Interning in an Ad/PR Agency for a month or so and get a feel of what its like. The work is really taxing, most of the times.
  7. Look before you leap. Symbiosis is a great brand. So is SIMC. But great brands also have a few niggles at the start. If you feel you have a single minded focus and dedication and feel SIMC-B WILL provide you the platform for it, then do jump in.

Hope this post provides you guys with an insider, unbiased viewpoint from a proud SIMC'ian

All the best!

Hey (Whatever Your Name is),

Congrats for getting into the Bangalore campus of SIMC.
I'm Arvind M B from the Senior Batch.

Just to clear your doubts on certain issues,
The infrastructure here at the Bangalore Campus is brilliant, from hostel rooms to mess to class rooms.

Placements-wise, we are the first batch, so placements will not happen till early 2011. But yes, as for the Summer Internship Placements, the entire batch has been placed at reputed agencies like Ogilvy & Mather, Genesis, Corporate Voice Weber Shandwick, Text100 et all.

Hope this puts you at more ease and clarifies your doubts.

For any more info, please mail me at arvind.baspure@simc.edu
Also, the Seniors of SIMC Bangalore have created a Facebook Group especially for the juniors. So please shoot any queries about SIMC (Bangalore only) here:
