Health Care Centre
Every campus of Symbiosis International University has a healthcare centre with one medical doctor and medical staff. This provides primary medical aid and advice.
The MBA programme in Banking and Finance is a full-time, two-year residential programme.
Apart from the basic courses in the functional areas of management, the intensive curriculum, spread over two years, covers courses specific to the banking and financial services industry such as banking operations, credit management, legal aspects of banking, international finance, risk management, treasury & forex management, financial engineering and analytics to name a few.
The emphasis is on blended learning methodology that combines classroom interaction, self-study modules enriched by research and experiential learning.
On completion of the first year, an internship of about 8 to 10 weeks duration in BFSI sector forms an integral part of the programme. In addition, one project of social relevance and a project in one's own area of interest are mandatory.
This programme has been designed as a contemporary, rigorous and practical source of management education specific to the BFS Industry. It would cater to the growing needs of this sector by providing a pool of talented young executives who would be thoroughly trained and ready to shoulder managerial responsibility in the banking and financial sector.
Apart from the regular curriculum, workshops on HRM, Technical analysis are also embedded in various semesters to make students industry ready. The Institute has tied up with Finitiatives Learning Pvt. Ltd. (FLIP) to provide industry relevant certificates related to banking and finance. Students are also encouraged to do other certifications to acquire special knowledge in their areas of interests.
The BFSI sector will witness requirements of trained manpower in financial markets. It is projected that more than 100,000,00 jobs will be created in the financial sector by 2020*(Mckinsey Report created for Gujarat International Finance Tech-city). The growing trend will translate into a large requirement of trained personnel who would be able to support this increase in scale and complexity in existing and new domains. In addition, the other constituents of BFS sector like the NBFC s operating in the Capital market, Consultancy and Research firms, would recruit to meet their growing requirements. The gap for trained and industry-ready manpower continues to be the concern for the BFS sector. The ICRA Management Consulting Services (IMaCS) report for National Skill Development on HR & skill development in the BFS & Insurance Sector (2022) has identified the gap between skills required and skills available for ready employment. This report highlights the need for sector specific education and training that will equip new entrants to hit the road running.
The first three batches have passed out and have joined various organisations in the BFSI sector. The recruiters have been public sector banks like State Bank of India, South India Bank, Bank of India, Union Bank of India and Central Bank of India. Even private banks like ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Indus Ind Bank, IDBI Bank, City Union Bank and South Indian Bank. The various other organisations were Capgemini, Avista Advisory group, Credit Capital Research technologies, Sahara Mutual Fund, S & P Capital IQ, Care Ratings, Kotak Securities, Transparent Value, Bajaj Allianz General Insurance and XL Dynamics Ltd.
