Sitting inside the classrooms will give us all the learning we need to become knowledgeable managers but let’s not stop there. Heard of the term holistic development? Well, that is what we aim for: To become dynamic managers who go beyond of what is expected. Be it fun-filled parties, exciting mini events, energising sports, stimulating cultural or the serious management events; we organise these all. And what do we get in return? We get to be a part of something memorable, we realise the value of a team, we master the prospect of a change and we learn to be on our toes all the time.
From welcoming the juniors to seeing off the seniors; ECC makes sure that life outside the classroom is fun compared to the seriousness of life inside the classroom. Some of our main events include:

“It has been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing against the laws of gravity.”
A global outlook is a crucial ingredient in the making of successful leaders. IRC (International Relations Committee), was incepted with the goal of building and sustaining SIBM Bangalore’s Foreign Relations Policy.
It’s time to get ‘glocal’ i.e. we should know how to balance the need for corporate consistency whilst valuing local diversity. Our biggest asset is our strategic location – Electronic City, the heart of India’s Silicon Valley. The location which boasts of a cosmopolitan culture makes it an ideal destination for fostering foreign relationships.
IRC is also involved in constantly engaging our students at SIBM Bengaluru in a number of activities that help gain a global perspective in our way of thinking, an initiative that few selected Indian B-schools provide.
Events Organized by IRC:
Utopia: We at IRC believe in encouraging cultural relationships between Symbiosis and other international universities. Utopia is a one-of-a-kind annual cultural festival hosted by our institute for all the international students in and around Bengaluru. This event coincides with the birthday of our beloved Dr. S.B. Majumdar, founder of Symbiosis Society, and also happens to be one of the flagship events on campus.
SIBM MUN: This annual event organised by IRC is an academic simulation of the United Nations where students from various UG & PG institutes play the role of delegates from different countries and attempt to solve real world issues with the policies and perspectives of their assigned country.
Athena: IRC is also involved in constantly engaging our students to university trainings, industrial visits, conferences, summits & dialogues at international locations. The focus of Athena is to give the students a Global exposure to various Economies & Industrial units so that this step could be a Threshold to their career in the future.
Foreign Language Course: We need to become multilingual, to improve our lives, develop our skills, communicate with others and change the world. That being the case, IRC every year regulates at least one foreign language course on campus.
Halloween: Halloween is celebrated in a number of countries on 31st October. On the same day IRC organises this international festival on campus with ghost story competition, costume carnival, scary movies and various other spooky elements.
Other Activities: Other Activities include building strong and long-lasting relationships with the other B-schools around the world. An important activity that IRC engages in is bringing international visitors (international faculty, academicians, professors, authors etc.) to the campus for interaction with our students on diverse topics related to world of international management.

“Orion” is the annual research journal of SIBM Bengaluru, published by Research committee, which helps students to gain a good grasp on the core subjects and build their resumes.
Students from SIBM Bengaluru write Research articles on any management related subject, which will be published in this Journal. An article written on a management subject after in-depth analysis will enhance students’ knowledge base and add value to their profile. As future managers, it is this clarity that will give students an edge over others and gain a place for them in the corporate world.
Welcome to the Quiz hub of SIBM B. Research committee is the official quiz master which conducts various quizzing events.

The course starts from June and students will slowly get hauled into the flow of the on and off – classroom activities. When they gradually try to get along with the pace, swiftly the SIP process starts. Without Proper guidance they might feel that they have been lead into a world of perplexity. Research Committee organizes “SIP experience “as a solution to this.
This is the event through which the students from senior batch share their Summer Internship experiences with the new batch, giving the first glimpse of the process, helping them comprehend what is the Internship all about and understand its importance. The basic objective is to acquaint the batch with the nuances and ideas to make students ‘SIP’ an asset for them in future.

Concours, the biggest Quizzing event of SIBM Bengaluru is organized by Research committee. A Huge number of students across the country participate in this event. This is conducted as a part of Revelation, the management fest of SIBM Bengaluru. It is a ‘battle of brilliance’.
The basic imperative of an MBA student is knowing what’s happening around him. “Stay updated”- is the slogan defines you as an MBA. For people who miss out reading daily newspapers due to various reasons and even for those who read news regularly (might miss out something vital), we reach you out regularly through emails with most important happenings around the planet and the world of business.

The primary objective of the SWDC Committee is to address and effectively solve various student related matters. SWDC is a bridge between students and authorities. The committee has to maintain a balance between student’s demands/problems and feasibility of solution provided by authorities.
There are three prominent areas which come under the purview of this committee. These are:
Functioning of the Hostel/ Campus: Developing a suitable system in which complaints of students with respect to hostel/campus infrastructure will be attended to by the maintenance staff within one working day. Taking care of the needs of the students and making suggestions to the management based on the same.
Functioning of the Mess/Cafeteria: Since food is the most primitive form of comfort, SWDC will strive hard to improve the quality and taste of food served in the mess and cafeteria. Complaints of students related to the mess facilities will be considered and appropriate steps for solving them will be taken. Quality checks in the mess and cafeteria will be done on regular basis. Infrastructure of Mess, Cafeteria and Water requirements will be taken care of as well.
Maintaining Discipline and Decorum in the College Premises: SWDC believes in: No evil propensity of the human heart is so powerful that it may not be subdued by discipline”. Discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment and self-discipline is one of the key ingredients of success in life. So we try to imbibe the feeling of accountability into the students by showcasing that they are responsible in all ways for upholding the reputation of the Institute through their actions.
To develop unity and integrity among students. As students belong to different states, countries, cultures and religions, various on-campus events will be conducted, which will represent different Indian/International festivals. These events will make students aware of customs of others. Together we will celebrate festivals to get united and know each other better. Various events- Ganesh Chaturthi, Navratri Puja, Gurpurab Langar, Christmas, Lohri, Holi, etc. had already been slotted for this purpose. Others can be added as per requirement.

Harvey Mackay once said that “A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline”, leadership is the same way.
SIBM Bengaluru has been a wonderful leadership learning lab where I have gathered the skills and knowledge to help embellish the institution and the people around me. Over the past one year, I have seen my headway as a leader, but most importantly, I have met my real self. The opportunities I have received just by being involved are priceless and I could not be more beholden for what this great institution has offered me.
Student Vice President
SIBM Bengaluru has made me learn to take the ownership and responsibility of my work. But the most important lesson I learned was, to remain motivated as there were a plethora of areas to be explored which made me push myself even harder, to achieve the higher benchmark. As time passed by, I became confident in decision making and comfortable with the heavy workload. It fills my heart to say that I got this opportunity to lead the Students Leadership Council. I will try my best to take it to new heights.
