The International MBA @ SIIB

The biggest advantage of the shrinking boundaries and the concept of the world becoming a global village is the ease of accessibility to products, ideas, talent, and a lot more from any corner of the world. In fact, as a result of the evolving global business scenario, the rate of expansion for ventures has also seen an exponential rise. The industry today is in need of managers who are well versed with the business scenario at the global level. The future managers need to think in tandem with the local perspective keeping in mind the globally interconnected business development scenario. Anticipating this business scenario, well in advance, the Symbiosis group initiated the MBA in International business in the early 90’s with the inception of Symbiosis Institute of Foreign Trade. The institution that started as one of the first places offering MBA in International Business (IB), evolved into an institute, currently recognized amongst the top 25 premier institutes of the country.

With changing times, SIFT got renamed as Symbiosis Institute of International Business (SIIB) that currently offers other niche programs dealing with specializations of agribusiness and energy sector as well. However, the MBA in International Business continues to remain its flagship programs. The two year intensive program focuses on different aspects including international business policies, foreign trade, latest cases, export management and other relevant issues of the global business scenario. The program takes into account the latest developments and accordingly prepares a training module that aids in transforming the students into global managers.

In line with the Symbiosis tradition, SIIB provides its students with state of the art academic infrastructure, an industry relevant curriculum and several other innovative platforms to maximize their learning. The MBA in International business program at SIIB carefully blends theory sessions with practical learning to give the students a real time feel of the corporate sector. Additionally, students are encouraged to pursue research and industry projects. This allows them to practice their classroom learning and therefore develop the coveted managerial skill set. The ultimate focus of the MBA in international business is to give the students a fair idea about the domestic markets and the global scenario.

The MBA in IB program follows a semester pattern wherein students are encouraged to develop an in-depth understanding of the industry and pursue their area of specializations. Along with pursuing the major courses, students have to opt for any one specialization in the domain of marketing, finance, supply chain management, and human resource as the program progresses.

Admissions to the programs at SIIB happen through the SNAP test which is followed by a group discussion and personal interview of the short listed students. This rigorous admissions procedure ensures that students with genuine interest are admitted into the program. So, those of you looking to build a rewarding global career, SIIB’s MBA in IB could be your ticket. Keep checking the SIIB website for regular updates on Admissions 2014.
