The Banking industry is considered to be one of the strongest sectors. In spite of the black recession period, the banking sector put up admirable resilience and restructured itself to act as a shock absorber for the economy. Banking management is a complex subject and not many colleges specialise in offering options for higher education in this field. An MBA in banking management is soon becoming an ambition for an increasing number of students. Responding to the need of the hour; Symbiosis set up SSBM or the Symbiosis School of Banking Management in Pune recently. The course structure at SSBM revolves around helping students learn the complexities of banking and financial sector integrated with the principles of management. In spite of its recent set up, students from the Symbiosis banking management course witnessed a superbly successful placement season.


The banking industry gave a very positive response to the first batch passing out from SSBM.
