biAfter a plethora of companies making their way into Nagpur, it’s time for the educational institutions to make a beeline. With National Law University (NLU) already set up and fully functional, the next in line to go operational is the esteemed Symbiosis International (Deemed University) (SIU). The Pune-headquartered academy will open doors in the month of July for the upcoming academic session (2019-21). Spread across a land size of 75-acres at Wathoda, this will be SIU’s second largest campus so far.
25% of the seats will be reserved and students from the city will be given a 15% fee concession. Symbiosis will be a pioneer in providing such kind of facility at any of its campuses. This will encourage students from the city to stay back and apply for the course instead of migrating to cities like Mumbai, Pune and other in the quest of better higher education.
According to a report by an English daily, Symbiosis will be setting up the operations with three disciplines viz. Symbiosis Institute of Business Management (SIBM), Symbiosis School of Law (SSL) and Symbiosis School of Planning, Architecture and Design (SSPAD). These schools will offer MBA, BArch, BBA, BBA-LLB, BALLB and LLM.
Pro-chancellor Vidya Yeravdekar said, “The teams from Bar Council India (BCI) and Council for Architecture (COA) visited the campus recently. After thorough inspection of our new building and facilities, they granted green signal for running the courses.”
“We’ve already started admissions for BBA, MBA, BALLB and BBA LLB and their classes will commence from July 1. For architecture, it will take some time as those would be based on entrance tests,” she said. Yeravdekar is also the principal director of Symbiosis Society.
Directors on officiating basis and faculties have been appointed for these three schools by the academia. According to the sources - Shrirang Altekar for SIBM, Sukvinder Badan Sing Dari for SSL and Anjali Sharma for SSPAD – are the officiating directors.
