INSPIRIT EVENING CLASSES

Right from the inception of the Institute Social Responsibility Cell of Scmhrd, Inspirit has been pivotal to the objectives that the team stood by. The motive behind it was aiding the education and overall advancement of underprivileged children. Who we are as individuals today is largely determined by the guidance and support, we received from family and teachers during our formative years, wherefrom came the idea of conducting daily evening classes for the less fortunate children from the neighbourhood. Going beyond the limitations of strict classroom education, we aid their personality development through tailor-made engagement activities. The initiative has grown over the years with the active participation of student volunteers from the batch and we currently tutor more than 50 children who come from 4 schools in the locality.

Students ranging from Grade 2 to Grade 10 are taught subjects including Science, Mathematics, and English for an hour and half daily. Curriculum tallying with their school syllabus is made for every grade with the idea of individual needs of every child kept in mind such that each child is afforded the attention they require.

Year after year the flame is kept alive by Team Samatva as we watch over the growth and development of our Inspirit kids!

But we do not lose any opportunity to celebrate the joys of childhood with those special days like

Children’s Day, Joy of Giving, and the weekly fun jam sessions on Saturday!

We celebrate Children's Day with our Inspirit kids. We make it an unforgettable experience for all of them with games, music, dance, snacks, cake, and lots of fun! It is the team’s yearly tradition to invite the batch to send in their childhood photos and for the kids to select the cutest baby! For the snacks, we sought sponsorship from Radisson Blu hotel who were happy to lend a hand.

And as we get ready to wrap up a year, we celebrate the season of giving, Christmas, with Joy of Giving. We ask the kids for their choice of gifts and send the Wishlist out to the whole SCMHRD family to sponsor their gifts and be their secret Santa. And on Christmas day, the batch comes together to celebrate with the children.

VRIKSHAK – TREE PLANTATION DRIVE

Considering the manifold benefits of planting trees, Team SAMATVA along with other volunteers from SCMHRD came together to plant trees of various species (native to the State of Maharashtra), in the surrounding areas of the college premises. The plantation program was to drive the idea to students that they play an important role in responding to Climate Change and Environmental Emergency.

The event was a resounding success. The students responded with enthusiasm and took delight in getting their hands dirty. We successfully planted over 100 trees which are now taken care of on a regular basis.

INDRADHANUSH – SCHOOL PAINTING

22000 sq. ft. of surface area. 250 liters of paint. And 300 smiling children.

Marunji Zila Parishad School, located in the outskirts of Pune, was in a deplorable condition. The walls were chipped and covered in fungus. It was an extremely unhealthy environment for the children to study in. So, before we embarked on Project ‘Indradhanush’, we had but one goal in mind:

It shouldn’t matter how slowly a child learns as long as we are encouraging them not to stop.”

Thus, SAMATVA, in association with Indigo Paints, decided to paint the entire school. Around 100 volunteers participated with great gusto and painted the school over a period of 2 weeks. Infographics related to the days of the week, the names of the planets, fractions, etc. were painted on the walls to pique the children’s interest in studies. Animated characters were painted as well to brighten up the classrooms. Minor cracks in the walls were repaired.

The event was a resounding success, and we sincerely hope that this initiative would go a long way in making the school a better place for these tiny tots.

THE HAPPINESS PROJECT

Reach Out, Speak Up and Inspire

Samatva believes in the message of 'You Matter'. The Happiness Project serves as a platform which enables students to start a conversation on Mental Health and share their unabridged stories online and on campus.

With the rigour and stress of MBA life, the project is aimed at raising awareness that Every Story is Important. Hence, the goal is to reach out to our friends, peers or colleagues who may be under tremendous pressure, dealing with anxiety and depression, or are even survivors!

At the heart of The Happiness Project, lies the importance of being emotionally and mentally healthy!

In addition, as a platform, it also offers anonymity should the student need it, and the stories are posted on a weekly basis.

Overall, a moment of courage will go a long way in inspiring the student community and in building bridges.

CHILDREN’S DAY CELEBRATIONS

Samatva celebrated Children’s Day with the students of Inspirit evening program. The celebration started off with games for the children, followed by a feast with the employees of Radisson Blu. The children were then treated to a musical performance by one of the batchmates, and the evening concluded with gift distribution.

J&J ANTI – OBESITY WALK

Anti-Obesity Day is observed on 26th of November in various parts of the world. India is one of the top ten obese countries in the world, with approximately 5% of the population being classified as morbidly obese. In order to raise awareness and to attempt to tackle this grave issue, Johnson & Johnson, in association with the Jayashree Todkar Foundation, organized an anti-obesity walk at Symbiosis Center for Management and Human Resource Development (SCMHRD) in collaboration with Samatva, the Institute Social Responsibility cell of SCMHRD.

Despite the early morning chill in the air, volunteers came in large numbers to support the cause. The guests addressed the volunteers on various facts related to obesity levels in India and different ways to lead a healthy lifestyle.

JOY OF GIVING

In the spirit of Love, Light and Joy, Samatva organized ‘Joy of Giving 2019’ for the children of INSPIRIT (Evening classes). ‘Twas an evening of storytelling, music and games. Children learned of the spirit of Christmas through our special guest, Santa Claus! Gifts were also exchanged amongst the children and the SCMHRD students.

TEACH

Our flagship event, TE.A.CH – Teach a Child, is a three- day drive which focuses on imparting much needed value and education, and on bringing the power of awareness among school children in the vicinity of SCMHRD. The module covered in 2019 included road safety, cleanliness, good manners, yoga and the importance of a balanced diet.

Aligning with the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda of “Leave No One Behind”, TEACH 2020 aims to drive emphasis on two Sustainable Development Goals, SDG 4 - Quality Education and SDG 6 - Clean Water & Sanitation. The three day event would ensure promotion of quality and effective learning outcomes of Primary and Secondary School children through flipped classrooms, science experiments, along with driving the conversation on Sanitation & Clean Water through activity based learning, to create a positive influence on the local community as well.

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.

BERLIN SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND LAW, BERLIN



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

- Tushar Bhatnagar (SCMHRD MBA – 2015-17) | International Exchange student at BSEL

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.
