SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: Excellent student diversity. People from all over he country as well as overseas study here. No dorm parties becuase by the second year, most students wish to live in a private accommodation and not campus. No alcohol use at campus is permitted.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: SIMC offers courses covering the entire spectrum of the media industry. Each course has been designedwith the kind of attention to detail and rigour the industry expects of our students and our students expect of us. Recognizing the fact that industry expectations can best be gauged by industry,we have had industry professionals consult with our panel of resident faculty and academicians,to help design the curriculum. Here courses are dynamic and revise every year to align with current trends.SIMC believe in iteration as a means to design and deliver courses, that are relevant to the media and communication landscape.
SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE: If you thought that being located in the middle of absolutely nowhere,some place away from the hustle of Pune city, close to nothing but Mother Nature had the all the trappings of adead campus, you really haven’t come to SIMC." "Hustling and bustling breakfast at the mess, interactive classes, after-class pit stop at the coffee shop,conversations over tea, more conversations over dinner, and back to a hostel that never really sleeps."

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: The classes conducted do not follow a very strict schedule as is a bit flexible as relaxed. The quality of teachers/professors is fine- where there are teachers who are visibly just alright, there are those who are really doing a good job. Though, the visiting faculty is really good, especially for PR. The design of the curriculum is innovative and different from what's followed by other top B-Schools.    
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: There isn't any student exchange programe as such but the events and programs that go along with the curriculum gives a lot of exposure to global infrastructure and framework.  Also, there is a mixed crowd here at SIMC, so you get to know people from different cultures as well.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: My field of choice is MBA in CM. The courses are divided over three categories or specialization perhaps- Business Communication, Public Relation and Master of Management. The faculty is helpful and accesible outside the classroom as well. The visiting faculty is sometimes really good and you get to learn a lot from them. 
FOREIGN EXCHANGE & INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE: The campus has many global events going on plus, in SIU there are many students from other countries. There isn't any foreign programs as such, but the global level events within the campus is a good source of exposure.

ACADEMICS & FACULTY: The academia is top notch with students surrounded by intellectual and experienced scholars.
