Your favourite aspect about SIBM?
The fact that the SIBM campus is located on a picturesque hilltop would definitely top the list of my many of my favourite aspects of SIBM. The beauty cannot be described by words.

Apart from this, we conduct cultural performances in the beginning of every academic year so as to break the ice between the freshers, seniors and also the professors.
