Creating Talent Pool of Professionals

 

The much acclaimed Pune-headquartered Symbiosis International University (SIU) is very soon coming up with its second largest campus at Nagpur. The Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) has already allotted 75 acres of land for the proposed campus at Wathoda.

The SIU will reserve certain number of seats for local students who will also get concession in fees.

At a press meet in Nagpur, Principal Director of Symbiosis Society Vidya Yeravdekar informed, “The Nagpur campus will be the second largest campus of the Symbiosis after its Pune campus. It will be first time in the history of Symbiosis that out of the total student intake, 25 per cent seats will be reserved for Nagpur-domiciled residents along with 15 per cent concession in academic fees.”

 

“She took pride in detailing, “Now students of Nagpur will not have to go and take up professional courses at Pune or Mumbai. Even students from Afro-Asian countries will be studying here, thus establishing Nagpur as an education-hub on the global map,” .

 

The society manages the SIU, which provides courses in different streams ranging from law to management.

 

Plethora of Subjects on Offer

 

Mrs. Yeravdekar also added that  “The Nagpur campus will offer courses in management (BBA-MBA), law (BA LLB and BBA LLB), design (fashion & textile), skill development in fields of health, information technology and communication.”

 

Thus, the students passing out of the varsity will be a brimful talent pool of professionals required in the second capital of Maharashtra. Nagpur is an aviation hub and hence courses in aviation and airport logistics along with a top notch architecture centre will also be a part of the curriculum of this SIU centre.

 

Speaking on the occasion, Municipal Commissioner of Nagpur Shravan Hardikar said, “A detailed tendering process was followed for the allotment of land. Two conditions were primary: 25 per cent reservation to Nagpur-domiciled students and financial concession in fees to local students. Major emphasis has been given on introducing management and skill-based courses.”

 

The inauguration ceremony will take place on Saturday.
