How We Started!!!

The Symbiosis Institute of International Business was founded in 1992 as Symbiosis Institute of Foreign Trade (SIFT). As the global business world expanded tremendously, the founders felt the need to pro-actively transform the institute from one of foreign trade to an all-encompassing ‘International Business’ and hence SIFT metamorphosed into Symbiosis Institute of International Business (SIIB).

It was not only the name of the institute that underwent a change but also its aim which became more wider to cover global aspects as it moved to a brand new campus equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure. Such changes were welcomed and appreciated by one and all in the following years. In the process, SIIB won much coveted accreditations making it one of the preferred destinations for MBA education in India.

Today, SIIB stands as one of the premier business schools in the country. Through all these years it has provided students not only a strong academic foundation but also ensured a smart personality along with instilling in them a holistic approach to become a good citizen of the country.

The institute can boast of 100% placements since its inception in leading companies around the country and around the globe that is reflected through an array of our alumnus spread across diverse geographical domains.

SIIB is also recognized as the center for two more elite programs MBA (AB) Agri Business which began in 2004 and MBA (E&E) Energy & Environment, a niche program which was launched in 2009 to cater to the latest energy and environmental needs by way of providing round the clock updated and upgraded syllabi and mapping the same with the corporate needs so that our students have an edge in not only placing themselves but also in becoming entrepreneurs.

In 2002, the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India conferred the "Deemed to be University" status on Symbiosis, and further in 2006 the UGC vide its notification withdrew the word Deemed and renamed the University as Symbiosis International (Deemed University) (SIU). SIU is accredited by NAAC with 'A' Grade. For more details on SIU, please visit Symbiosis International (Deemed University)
