Value Added Courses
Corporate Exposure: We ensure that the students are exposed to corporate at five levels:
SIM students take part in several competitions across other recognised management institutes. Each student must attend at least one competition. The Institute sponsors partcipation fees, registration and travel cost.
Most students are not focused on the sector and functional area in which they prefer to work when they join. Through sector study, mentoring and corporate exposure we guide them to their focus area and through the projects we enable them to acid test their focus so that when they apply for a job, they are clear on the sector and the functional area they want to be in.

At SIM, students are exposed to focused mentoring that is based on defence officers’ training. Divided into groups of 15, with a Core Faculty Mentor, the students are trained in key skills such as, communication and articulation, presentation, self discipline, ability to work in a diverse environment, team work, collaboration, application of IT, critical thinking and problem solving, managing stress, interpersonal skills, initiative skills, and assertiveness. This mentoring includes specialist counseling under expert psychologists, and psychometric personality tests.
