Director's message

The world is undergoing rapid transition in every sphere of life. Business models are being challenged by disruptive innovation, unparalleled competition and consumer dynamics. With the emergence of artificial intelligence and robo culture, the corporate sector is demanding a new breed of managers who are capable of managing multiple business portfolios and heterogeneous workforce without compromising ROMI (return on money invested) and ROTI (return on time invested). Business schools need to proactively respond to this and mould the talents at hand to shape the destiny of the companies and of themselves. SIMS assures you a world class experience of learning and ecstasy. Hearty welcome!
