International Student

Globalization is one of the most transformative forces of our times and it has not left any aspect of our lives untouched. Higher education too hasn’t been left untouched. The process of providing international exposure in the Post graduate program in rooted in the DNA of SCMHRD. As a constituent of Symbiosis International (Deemed University), which fosters international understanding through quality education, SCMHRD does stand up to the vision of SIU .

At SCMHRD various opportunities are offered to students to gain international exposure. There are summer school s offered by Maastricht University, Munich University, Hanyang University, Bremen University, Telecom Ecole de Management etc. In addition to this there are opportunities provided to pursue dual degree and semester exchange in semester 1 and semester 4 respectively. The dual degree tie up is with Universities like Berlin School of Economics and Law, Telecom Ecole de Management and Deakin University. The semester exchange tie up is with ESC Rennes, Deakin University and RMIT Australia to name a few. SCMHRD seeks to increase tie-ups with other universities and endeavors to provide semester exchange opportunities to students across all semesters.

SCMHRD believes in the holistic process of internationalization which means that just as students get opportunities to travel abroad the faculty members too can avail themselves of the various opportunities presented to them. Similarly research scholars from reputed universities globally come for guest sessions at SCMHRD. To name a few Prof. Nezi Altey (Scholar from De Paul University Chicago), Scholar-in –residence George Wyeth (USA), Prof.Elizabeth Rose, Prof.Ram Mudambi (Temple University USA) have all been a part of SCMHRD’s pedagogical process.

So also Professors from SCMHRD have been invited to conduct sessions at Universities like Berlin School of Economics and Law, Cologne University , Telecom de Ecole etc.

Internationalization at SCMHRD

The process of internationalization is rooted in the DNA of Symbiosis International University (SIU). At SCMHRD (a constituent of SIU), the process of internationalization has received due weightage.

SCMHRD encourages International student and faculty exchange programs along with collaborative faculty research with International Universities. In its endeavour to make a mark in the International institutes, SCMHRD has got itself AACSB accredited. AACSB (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International), is a voluntary, non-governmental accrediting agency that oversees the standardization of collegiate schools of business and accounting nationwide. SCMHRD hopes to achieve a full circle in terms of internationalization by getting AACSB accredited.

The students at SCMHRD are exposed to the internationalization process through various summer programs, semester exchange programs and by participating in the workshops and sessions conducted by eminent International faculty members from reputed B-schools like The Liverpool Business School, Telecom-De-Ecole, Berlin School of Economics and Law, Leeds Beckett University, University of Wolverhampton and many more. Additionally, SCMHRD was the chosen destination by Asia Foundation to host 27 students from Afghanistan. 

The faculty at SCMHRD foster global outlook by participating as visiting faculty and research scholars at various International Business schools like Telecom-De-Ecole, Nottingham Trent University, Deakin University to name a few. Amidst the pandemic too SCMHRD faculty has been successful in collaborating with Valais-Wallis University of Applied Sciences & Arts Western Switzerland to conduct experiential learning sessions on Leading Multicultural Project teams with students from both the institutes. While this was a teaching learning collaboration, there has been collaborations on the research front too which have materialized in securing International partner for the Annual Research conference hosted by SCMHRD. 

In future SCMHRD hopes to scale new heights and join the leagues of established schools by participating the FT Ranking. 


Business sustainability

  • Business sustainability has become important since organizations recognize the need to coevolve while balancing the interests of the environment, society and economic success. Seamless business boundaries and the growing presence of the trans-nationals in developing nations particularly India, have also highlighted the hitherto ‘western’ concept of sustainability percolate into the boardrooms and the way that companies are thinking of business today.

  • Stakeholders like consumer forums, activists, informed customers and shareholders are demanding that businesses adopt a symbiotic approach (sustainability) rather than a predatorial approach across various functions such as product development, marketing, operations, finance and etc.

  • Stakeholders like consumer forums, activists, informed customers and shareholders are demanding that businesses adopt a symbiotic approach (sustainability) rather than a predatorial approach across various functions such as product development, marketing, operations, finance and etc.

  • At SCMHRD, there is a special emphasis on Corporate Sustainability as a result of which students are expected to study different aspects, perspectives and the business implications of sustainability for a given scenario. Starting with An Introduction to Sustainability in the first semester, students are familiarised with the concepts, terminology and the elements that comprise a sustainable business. It is expected that the efforts will sensitize the participants and encourage an alternate way of thinking such that they are better equipped to take on their roles as informed business leaders, entrepreneurs and change agents going forward.

Exchange Programme



MBA students at SCMHRD are provided with a number of opportunities at the Institute for developing a holistic vision. One such opportunity is through the Institute’s Student Exchange Programme. The strong and self-sustaining exchange programme has been designed to help the Institute serve its purpose better and enhance academic standards. Student Exchange Programmes have been established with leading schools in Europe.

An international exchange programme facilitates flow of ideas between academic institutions. Joint activities provide each school with better understanding of the methods and programmes of the partnering school and enhance knowledge and skills of students and faculty members alike. Students participating in the programme seek to broaden their academic and cultural experiences. The experience contributes immensely to building of management perspective and poise. Visiting students add to the diversity of knowledge & culture at the Institute, and enhance the effectiveness of its pedagogy.

SCMHRD has been seeking to establish an increasing number of exchange programmes with institutions having excellent academic standards.

Currently we have two exchange programs with Berlin School of Economics and Law and Telecom ecol de Management.

Berlin School of Economics and Law (BSEL) is one of the seven public universities of Applied Sciences in Berlin. I am enrolled as a dual degree student in a course Master in Arts(M.A.) in International Business and Consulting: Human Resource Management. The course runs in English. My class in an eclectic mix of students from various parts of eastern Europe, western Europe and Asia. The university conducts various corporate interactions and companies like PWC conduct career counseling sessions. The experience I stand to gain through interaction with students from diverse background, practical learning, and corporate exposure will definitely play a part in enriching my perspective and possibilities in the globalized world. I am grateful to be part of SCMHRD, Pune
