Careers360: The number of MBA applicants has almost remained stagnant for last 4-5 years now. This year the number of applicants is heading to the worst as reflected in lowering the number of applications for CAT. What could be the key reasons for this?
Dr. Manoj Bhide: When students choose their career, various factors are taken into account like placement, work environment, well-being. With stagnation in pay packages, lack of opportunities of being selected in reputed companies has hampered the flow of students towards management. Management courses should provide candidates with a modern skill set, communication skills to be ready for absorption in the industry, so the institutes will have to contribute to a better individual. With the improvement in the economy, the demand for managers will increase too.
CAT can’t be taken as a parameter for the overall candidates aspiring for management education as now many students opt for overseas education too, they travel abroad to study management. Also, due to various foreign universities establishing a presence in India, many students opt for that as well. But having said that, overall MBA student aspirants have certainly not kept pace with the positive sentiments of the economy in general because a certain demand-supply correction is also taking place in the higher and technical education space.
Careers360: How has the value of management education in India changed in the last 3-5 years? How do you foresee the MBA programme scenario in the coming 1-3 years?
Dr. Manoj Bhide: Now-a-days the industries focus on the qualities which an individual possess rather than the brand name of the institute. Industry looks for an individual possessing the required skills and suitability for their requirements. So in coming years, students will have to add to their knowledge by trying to learn and acquire new skills which are required at the global level. More focus on ethics, international competitiveness, skill set development, Make in India, political and judicial activism in the business world needs to be specifically inculcated in the study curriculum.
Careers360: What is the total intake in the flagship PG programme in management in your institute?
Dr. Manoj Bhide: The total intake for MMS programme is 120 students. The total intake for PGDM programme is 60 students.The fees for first year is 69,000/- INR (Rs 2000 refundable). The fee for Second Year is 67,000/- INR and this fee structure have remained constant for the past few years.
Careers360: How has been the placement at your institute for the 2013-15 batch?
Dr. Manoj Bhide: The placements for the year 2013-15 have been 100% for those eligible for the process. This is the tradition that we have been following since past years. The average package for the batch was 10.22 lacs while the highest going up to 16.8 lacks. There was no particular trend, though the finance batches are in a greater demand in recent times.
Careers360: What will be your selection criteria for MBA/PGDM programme for the academic year 16-18?
Dr. Manoj Bhide: The selection criteria will be as per the government regulations. That is the DTE process will be followed this time just same as the last. We always see the batch being dominated by engineers. The number of males and engineers always exceed the others by a huge margin. Diversity should be promoted so that we can have a wider pool of knowledge bank.
Careers360: What is the USP of your 2 years management programme which differentiates it from others? How do you plan to enrich the same in the coming years?
Dr. Manoj Bhide: We try to know the strengths and weaknesses of the students after their admission and effort is made to convert their weaknesses into strengths. Many programmes such as Six Sigma, SAP, Big Data Analytics, financial modelling, are conducted apart from the curriculum. Students are encouraged to conduct academic and cultural programmes which help them in enhancing leadership qualities, planning, execution and team work. Our students have won multiple corporate as well as college competitions at a national level such as Dewang Mehta National Awards, case study and paper presentation competitions at various IIMs and other top notch B-schools.
Depending on the feedback, the faculty for the teaching and training is invited. Many of the alumni of SIMSREE offer help and assistance with their experience in the industry to the students. Alumni provide a good support in the placements too. We also plan to have more electronic journals, case studies presented by students and presentations on current national and international economic affairs.
There has been an appointment of training and placement director who shall develop the employability and other soft skills of the students by personal mentoring and communication capability improvement.
Careers360: Do you think publications in peer-reviewed journals, as indexed in international databases, have a western bias (USA, UK)?
Dr. Manoj Bhide: Lot of information is now available regarding industries in the country. We are not isolated from the global economy anymore. We will have to study the impact of various global economies and try to find the best-suited path for enhanced and sustainable growth and development. With the focus on Make in India, our researchers should try to educate importance of entrepreneurship among the students. Inculcating the culture of data analysis, data assimilation, data interpretation in the primary and secondary sphere needs to be developed amongst the faculty and through them in the students.
Careers360: Message for the Aspirants of SIMSREE?
Dr. Manoj Bhide: Students should choose the B-School judiciously. Taking into account the placements, infrastructure facilities, library, faculty, ROI linkages, corporate connect, governance and campus environment which will enrich the value of the skill sets of the students.

my may mat composite score is 761 & 99.09 percentile .can i take addmission in top mms colleges like simsree,pumba etc
It's really good to hear that you scored 99.09 percentile in MAT but sadly from this year, The official body responsible for MMS admissions has denied to take scores of MAT and ATMA and GMAT.
Because of this decision you won't be able to get MMS in these colleges but yes you can get PGDM in the top colleges like NL Dalmia, SIES, MET etc.
For getting admission in MMS, CET registration is compulsory and you should have a valid score of CET, CAT or CMAT
