SIM is rich in activities focused towards development of the individual. Our activities can be classified into following categories:
Personality Development Activities
This consists of Boot Camp, attitude development, group mentoring. Mentoring groups consists of 15 students and a faculty and the process is set in motion with a renowned Big 5 personality test duly interpreted by expert in house psychologies. Thereafter the students are helped to decide on the goals, define how to achieve it, monitor it regularly, receive feedback and move progressively towards the goal. This unique process is structured, customized for individual need and has been fully refined to ensure that your personality is developed fully to achieve your goals.
Communication Development Activities
This is done by Public Speaking specialist intervention by Raamanathan Group, daily news reading, analysis and presentation, English classes, Cambridge Business English Certification, debate and elocution club activities and Book Reviews.
Personal Brand Building Activities
SIM includes several self brand building Courses to include Six Sigma, ERP, Customer Relations Management, Insurance and Mutural Fund Regulatory Authority certification courses, besides a number of one day courses.
SIM has several industry visits and industry captain's interactive talks to increase the students' interaction with industry. This is further reinforced by doing at least three important projects with the industry.
Although the purpose of education is not a career, Placement training receives the centre focus in SIM. A group wise study on the various sectors give you an in depth knowledge of various sectors of business and provides you with skill to research into any sector which is the crux towards your decision on the sector where you want to build your career. This is followed by a placement camp where senior persons from many sectors interact with you thus preparing you for the placement. At least three to four sets of mock interviews, several rounds of Group Discussion and Aptitude tests make you ready to face the placement process confidently.

'How to prepare oneself for a job interview'- an effective session taken by Mr. Lal Varghese from MRF, along with Sector Studies and Mock interviews conducted by the faculty members, helped the students to prepare themselves for the upcoming placement interviews.
Social Responsibility Activities
This is done through SIMTHESIS, the management festival of SIM, and by organizing several other conferences. Most students get an opportunity to showcase their organizing skill and learn in the process.
Competitiveness Development Activities
All SIM students are required to participate in minimum two to three competitive activities conducted by other institutes thus teaching the students the art of competing. There are of course several competitions in the institute also.
Entrepreneurial Skill Development Activities
For those who have the entrepreneurial spirit and go, the Entrepreneurial Cell and Business Plan writing training and competitions give an excellent opportunity.
Besides the daily leisure activities, SIM organizes picnics and tours purely intended for leisure such as Vega Land Visit, Visit to High ranges etc.
Cultural Club Programme
While academic activities are the primary focus of any educational institution, a vibrant campus should be able to bring out the inner talents of students. The emerging generation of managers must be socially responsible and environment conscious. Physical fitness is as important as mental fitness. The society needs young entrepreneurs to emerge.
The Cultural Club, Sports Club and Entrepreneurship Development Club are student initiatives supported by faculty with the objective of developing 'the complete manager'. These clubs meet every week and plan, organize & conduct various events in which all students participate. In spite of the strength of just 120 students of the campus, the students are able to bring out innovative and high quality programmes suitable to any function and relevant to any context.
The active participation by students in extra curricular activities is a hall mark of life at Saintgits Institute of Management.
