The learning experience is further enriched by a multitude of clubs ranging from dramatics, music & dance, business games, entrepreneurship and social initiatives which are all run by the students themselves and cater to the collective need for individual expression of creativity and wellbeing. These activities also organically prepare students to take on bigger roles and responsibilities for the future.

The curriculum is designed to ensure that classroom learning is interspersed with Case Studies, Project work, Role Plays, Simulation, Presentation, Article Reviews, Assignments, Business Games, and field trips, wherever necessary. Apart from this, the students are also encouraged to pursue online courses through MOOC, Hubspot certification, Google certification etc. The Institute regularly organises Guest Lectures so that by the end of the course the students get a strong theoretical base and the ability to link theoretical concepts with prevalent Management Practices.
Over the past years, the Institute has attracted students not only from different parts of India but also from other countries. As of now, there are students from more than 25 different countries on campus. The rich diversity provides an extremely varied and multi-cultural exposure to all students.
The college has a dedicated Placement Division which ‘handholds’ the student right from the start with building CV’s to the final selection process. As a result, the track record for placements has been rising over the years. Students can choose from multinational companies to start-ups in their various domains and specialisations. SCMS-Pune is the place to be in the placement season. KPMG, PwC, Catenon, Tres Vista, MGH and GPTW are some of our regular recruiters.

Over the years, the College Festival, ‘Sympulse’ which started off as humble celebration of the campus spirit and bonhomie, has grown into spectacular extravaganza which draws thousands of students from across India and abroad. ‘Sympulse 2018 - An Environmental Entourage’ witnessed mega events and provided a platform for participants to show case their talents in front of a wide audience. This year, the institute hosted a TED talk with eminent speakers. It is one of the much awaited college festivals not only because of the scale at which it is held but because of the activities, experiences and the way it is organised. The festival is managed by the students, which also gives them the live experience in management lessons.
