Welcome to Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication (SIMC), Symbiosis International (Deemed University), Pune. To say that media is everywhere is cliché. However, this cliché poses both umpteen challenges as well as opportunities. While the digitally-enabled world offers unprecedented opportunities on one hand, the ability to leverage the advantages of this communications revolution requires a sharp understanding of the domain. What cannot be forgotten in this euphoria is that a responsible and socially-oriented media is critical to the functioning of a plural society. Only well-grounded professionals can bring this nuanced understanding to the working of the media industry. The essence of SIMC lies in creating practitioners who can assimilate intellect, creativity, skill and integrity and achieve highest standards of professional expertise and conduct. Today, SIMC is the largest institute of its kind in India in terms of PG student intake, across two full-time (2 year), residential programs with distinctly different specializations and yet, delivering a unique and complementary blend of Media, Communications and Management theories coupled with practice. SIMC is also the oldest post-graduate institute offering integrated Media and Communications based programs. Our vision for the future spans greater recognition as an institute with proven academic standards, higher industry interactions and collaborations with other academic institutions also focusing on the Media and Communications fields, and developing ourselves as the Centre of Excellence in Communications Research in the country. We are also laying greater emphasis on Training and Capability Enhancement Programs (for industry and academia) in the field of Media and Communications, leveraging our excellent infrastructure, in-house capabilities and also the unique strengths of our industry network and alumni fraternity. Our alumni are working in leading national and international media organizations and many of them have assumed leadership roles. We take pride in saying that SIMC alumni have achieved professional recognition and have been recipients of the most coveted awards and honours in the fields of journalism, filmmaking, advertising and corporate communications. I would invite you to browse through the various sections of our website to get a full perspective of the capabilities and resources of SIMC; that can be harnessed for enhancing ways to connect, communicate and converge better in a changing world. Best Regards, Ruchi Jaggi, Director SIMC, SIU.
