Banking is one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy. The Indian banking system is acknowledged to be systemically sound and resilient. Looking back we see that the last decade ended on an optimistic note and the projections for the next decade have been very encouraging. In its report published in August 2011 by IBA – BCG & FICCI the Indian banking industry is projected to be the world’s seventh largest by 2015, fifth largest by 2020 and third–largest by 2025 in terms of the total value of assets held at the then rate of growth of GDP.
This growth would bring with it an increased requirement of trained human resource. However the industry faces a dearth of skilled professionals.There are several courses in the finance sectors; in fact the Symbiosis MBA in finance every year sees many admissions. Butwhen it comes to pursuing banking management in Pune not many institutes have a specialised course. Symbiosis School of Banking Management, a recent venture under the Symbiosis International University is an attempt to identify this gap and deliver industry ready professionals to the banking sector.
Located in Pune, one of the most preferred destinations when it comes to pursuing a post graduation;SSBM is India’s leading B school to offer an MBA in banking management. The SSBM campus is a part of the beautiful 300 acre area of the Symbiosis knowledge village in Lavale. Being associated to the Symbiosis family, SSBM is a recent venture offering courses that help understand the banking sector better.
In fact SSBM is one of India’s leading B-schools to offer an MBA in banking management. The course structure is carefully designed to include industry interactions along with regular studies. The compulsory internships as part of the curriculum allows the students better exposure to the intricacies of the banking industry. There are also several events organised where students get a chance to organize as well as participate. Being a recent venture the Symbiosis Banking Management institute has several tie ups to its credit. Its association to leading universities across several counties allows the students to broaden their learning’s.
Taking inputs from leaders in the banking industry the programme structure at SSBM is kept updated to match the dynamic industry standards.SSBM has an intake of 50 seats for the two- year residential program offering an MBA in Banking Management. A prerequisite for any student wanting admission to SSBM is the SNAP test. Interested students have to also register separately on the SSBM website. The final admission is a result of a combination of SNAP scores, group discussion and personal interview on the campus.
Selected students are then provided a wholesome environment to gain maximum from the faculty at SSBM. In fact SSBM strives to come up with innovative learning techniques to help its students. One such initiative is the online induction program that SSBM conducts tobring all entrants to a level playing ground before the commencement of the programme.The campus at SSBM is equipped with state of art infrastructure and well stocked library to ensure a contributing to the learning environment for its students.
Lead by Dr. BhamaVenkatramani , the institute’s last placement season has seen several big names from the banking industry to come on campus for recruitment. In spite of being relatively young; Symbiosis Banking Management course has been appreciated by the banking industry. The students at SSBM are well equipped with the skill sets needed for managers to face the day to day challenges in the banking sector. With every passing year SSBM is successfully implementing its vision of being a cradle of innovative and ethical banking practices.
