Chancellor's Message SIU Pune
Dr. S.B. Mujumdar
We are celebrating the birth of an institution of higher learning - one that is born of a well-recognized concept, that quality education and a free thinking enterprise are essential to a strong and truly developing nation. The Symbiosis Institute of Business Management or SIBM, as we fondly call it, shall continue to strive towards this goal by imparting the highest standards of training to future managers of India and elsewhere. We renew our commitment to a set of ideals, and to set our course for the future. Education can move a nation; the future belongs to those who understand it.
As the first off-campus venture of Symbiosis International University, SIBM Bengaluru shall be the flag-bearer for all the values that we, at Symbiosis hold dear. It shall reach out to a new audience of students, engage a broader set of industries and fill a market niche by providing the most rigorous training in new and emerging areas of management education. As we extend our family, we aim to make SIBM Bengaluru a shining example of what is possible, of what it takes to meet the challenges of the 21st century with confidence and maturity. We shall be a community of learning anchored by ethical behaviour, grounded in the humanistic tradition, committed to developing global business leaders and solving our most pressing societal problems through discovery and entrepreneurship in productive working partnership with our colleagues from across the university and elsewhere.
