Which Symbiosis Institute would be feasible to apply for at this time?

Now we’ll see the preferred/eligible candidates by each college and which colleges you should aim to get into based on the above-mentioned parameters.

These parameters are common for all the institutes(except some which are mentioned below):

  • Candidates appearing for final year examinations can also apply, but their admission will be subject to obtaining a minimum of 50% marks (45% for SC/ST) in the qualifying examination
  • A candidate who has completed qualifying qualification from any Foreign University must obtain an equivalence certificate from the Association of Indian Universities (AIU)
  • Candidate must be a graduate with a minimum of 50% marks (45% for SC/ST) at graduation level from any statutory university

Symbiosis Institute of International Business (SIIB)


  • Candidate must be a graduate with a minimum of 50% (45% for SC/ST) marks in the qualifying examination from any statutory University in Agri Sciences or Agri related discipline
  • Non-Agri graduates with a minimum of 50% (45% for SC/ST) marks in the qualifying examination from any statutory University with a basic understanding of agriculture and agribusiness and a keen interest in the same are also eligible to apply. Such candidates need to demonstrate their understanding and interest in agribusiness during the selection process. Candidates with relevant work experience will be given preference
  • All the Non-Agri graduates with a minimum of 50% (45% for SC/ST) marks at Graduate level from any statutory University and having family business in agriculture and the allied sector will also be considered eligible for admission

Energy & Environment:

  • Candidate must be a graduate with a minimum 50% (45% for SC/ST) in Engineering / Geology / Economics / Petroleum / Energy & Environment Science / Biochemistry / Architecture from any statutory University. Other graduates with full-time work experience of more than one year after graduation in the Energy and Environment sector are also eligible to apply

Symbiosis Centre of Management and Human Resource Development (SCMHRD)

Infrastructure Management:

  • Must be a graduate from any statutory/recognized university in any engineering discipline and architecture (B.E/B.Tech/B.Arch), except in Computer Science (CS), Information Technology (IT), Information Systems (IS), and any related discipline, with a minimum of 50% marks (45% marks for SC/ST candidates)

Symbiosis Institute of Operations Management (SIOM, Nasik)

  • Candidate must be an Engineering Graduate (BE/ B Tech of any stream) with a minimum of 50% marks (45% for SC/ST candidates) from a statutory University


  • If it is your first attempt, try aiming for the top college i.e. SIBM, Pune. Even you can take second attempt and try for the top colleges irrespective of your backgound. Again this purely depends on how many attempts you can take at maximum
  • If you already have 1-3 years experience and stuck around a package of 3-4 lakhs, try to go only for top 4-5 institutes such as SIBM(Pune), SCMHRD, SIIB, SIOM and  SIBM(Bangalore). As you would be spending 2 years here and with some work experience, it only makes sense when who get a salary of atleat 2.5 times what you get now or what you were being paid
  •  If it is your first attempt, you are a fresher and need to get a seat somewhere, try aiming for SIMS, SIDTM, SCIT, and SIBM(Hyderabad) which have a decent fee and package is also good
  • If you have tried for 2-3 times and think it is the last time you are going to apply, you can go for the other institutes like SICSR, SIMC, SIHS, SSSS
Now provided with all the parameters, you need to make the decision and the decision needs to be taken before sitting for the exam. So, one must see their potential, level of preparation, seriousness, and apply accordingly. Hope you find the right fit for you, All the best!!!

During my CAT preparation, I enrolled at MBA Pathshala for classroom coaching. Abhijit Sir & Haider Sir guided me through the process of planning & executing the strategies I had to use to succeed in the test. I received regular feedback on my progress during the GD and PI preparations after CAT. I received calls from IIMs, SPJIMR, and MDI. MBAP played a huge role in this, and I cannot thank them enough for their efforts.

MBAP is a great place to prepare for MBA-CET, CAT, and CMAT, and the faculty are unbeatable. Most importantly, they pay personal attention to each student. Most faculty members come from IIMs. One-on-one interaction helped me improve as the exams approached, as well as get calls from IIMs I, S, and all New and Baby IIMs. Interview sessions were very beneficial for me to convert IIM S.

I am glad I chose MBA Pathshala for my MBA coaching. The faculty here is excellent and very competent. If I had any questions or needed extra classes, they always gave me one. I got through my GD-PIs too after the exams with their help. Thanks to MBAP, I was able to pass CAT and other entrance exams. Among others, I received calls from XLRI, XIMB, and IIMs. A few of the colleges I've converted are KJ Somaiya, TAPMI, IIM Sambalpur, and IIM Sirmaur.

MBAP prepared me for GD, WAT, and PI. Abhijit Singh, Haider, and other MBAP faculty provided excellent training. Good knowledge was imparted from the very beginning. Regular mock interviews were conducted. As a former SPJIMR, I would recommend students to join MBAP.

Coaching offers me personalized attention and a competitive environment. Because the preparation was so rigorous, I eventually began to perform at my best. The mock interviews/GD/WATs were conducted by anonymous panels, and it really boosted my confidence. Although I got a call from SCMHRD (SNAP-98.12), Abhijeet sir felt that I should try again and aim for IIM-A/B/C. It has been your pleasure to have been your mentor.

You will get good support from the faculty until you get into a B-School. The shortcut techniques you will learn will be extremely useful. You will be able to resolve doubts at any time. If you plan on taking CAT CET or any other entrance exam, go for MBA Pathshala. With the help of MBAP tutors, I received a call from IMT Ghaziabad.

GMAT prep with MBAP was the best I've ever experienced. With Rohan Kulkarni Sir's Verbal Guidance, I scored 85th percentile in my GMAT exam as I was very weak in English. I always found Haider Sir and Abhijeet to answer my questions and to develop strategies and shortcuts to tackle GMAT problems for me. MBAP is a great option for GMAT and CAT prep.
