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

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.
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 has always encouraged student- faculty exchange programs and collaborative faculty research with faculty from International Universities, some of its achievements for the last year were as follows-
The faculty from SCMHRD were invited to deliver their areas of expertise from the University of Nottingham Trent, Berlin School of Economics and Law and Telecome de Ecole.
One of the faculty members from SCMHRD also had the honour of being selected for the Endeavour scholarship by the Australian Government.
A few faculty members from SCMHRD have also collaborated with faculty members from University of Abu Dhabi and Waikto University for successful research paper publications.
Additionally, SCMHRD invites experts from various domains internationally to conduct sessions either in form of workshops or as a guest lecture.
Till date SCMHRD has been fortunate to have faculty members from Leeds Beckett University, Montpellier University, University of Michigan, Temple University, Berlin School of Economics and Law and many more to conduct sessions for both the students and the faculty members.
SCMHRD has also signed a MoU with the University of Wolverhampton to facilitate exchange program for the students from Infrastructure Development Management (IDM).
The students of SCMHRD participate in various summer school programs organized by Berlin School of Economics and Law, London Business School, HEC Paris. Moreover, students are provided the option to have a semester exchange with Universities like Leeds Beckett University, Telecome de Ecole Paris and Rennes school of Business.
SCMHRD in its capacity has not limited the process of Internationalization to just faculty-student exchange, but it has taken a big leap by applying for the AACSB accreditation. 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.
