Alumni Testimonials


Mr. Deepak Malik, Trade Analyst, Maersk Benelus

“We were the only batch (2001-2003), who ended up experiencing both facets of the institute i.e. operating out of the makeshift school premises and literally having to fetch for ourselves, to having our own fully fledged campus from 2002 onwards and it’s this transformation that truly speaks about SIMS and the way it has moved on in terms of infrastructure. The well rounded exposure that the student managers gather at SIMS, through our excellent faculty members, various seminars / symposiums that SIMS organises and also participates into, the Internship programme as well as the other co-curricular activities.Having been through all of these, ensured that starting out working post passing out didn’t really require a longer settling in period.Wish you all well in earnest for the placement preparations, Go well!”

Smita Rajgopal, Creative Director, Smitten

“I started my career as a freelance creative writer and moved on to help set up a design firm in Bombay before moving on to set up my own firm Smitten. I actually realized it was what I wanted to do when I was at SIMS and was Editor and PR Council member both in junior year and senior year. I realized I wanted to opt out of placements and set out on a path of my own straight from campus. The fact that the brochure I helped conceptualize at SIMS went on to win at the India Brand Summit 2006 awards amidst keen competition from institutes like IIM Bangalore etc”

Arunima Singh Deo, Co-founder, babyoye.com

“I miss the professors and friends that I made in SIMS. Some professors like our marketing management one went on to become one of the closest friends I have later in life. The solid grounding and learning I got from SIMS is something I will carry on for life.I have been to 2 SIMS meets and really enjoyed the last one where I got the opportunity to meet our Director. It would be great if we had a more interactive community of ex-SIMSites where we should meet and exchange notes and ideas from each other. It would help as everyone is in such varied fields and would benefit from each others’ experiences.”

Anish Philip, Director, People Function, Mindtree

“I started my career with Ernst & Young (EY) with the Management Consulting Division in Bangalore. Worked on assignments that involved benchmarking compensation & benefits, HR Due Diligence, Employee Satisfaction Study. After having worked with EY for one year, I moved to Mind-tree and have been here for the last 13 years. I still continue to enjoy my stint here. I miss my batch mates and the vada pav that we used to have in the evening. I enjoy the alumni meets.”
