The Symbiosis School of Media and Communication was set up in Bengaluru, to enhance the presence of Symbiosis in the South of India. Education facilitates the spreading of knowledge in a scientific manner and knowledge is the only differentiating factor that transforms an ordinary being into an extra-ordinary personality. It has always been my passion to empower the youth by imparting quality education for the holistic development of the youth of the world.
As a developing power poised to becoming a super power by 2020, we in India need to re-discover the glory of the institutions of learning from a bygone era such as the Takshashila and Nalanda. This has been our single-most consistent endeavour over the years at Symbiosis. The youth are the most important drivers of not only a young and vibrant India, but a brave new world order. I am gratified to note the growth of Symbiosis across the Country. Use this great Institution to not only shed knowledge to the world around you, but to accept knowledge from all sides. Use this platform to affirm the power of the youth and energize the Nation. May you ensure that the banner of Symbiosis flies high far and wide at all times.
God bless you!
Prof. Dr. S.B. Mujumdar
Founder President and Chancellor, Symbiosis International (Deemed University).
Message From The Vice Chancellor

With the collaborative networks of several Universities from different parts of the world, SIU provides a very conducive, interactive, inspiring environment to create true global citizens who are ready to contribute to their respective countries and to the humanity. The ethos of Symbiosis is the motto of ‘Vasudhaivea Kutumbhakam’. The sense of ‘one world, one family’ has been deeply engrained in our students manifesting itself during their professional lives, irrespective of the type of organization or the land they choose to be in. This has, over the years, turned out to be the hallmark of our students who have shown professionalism in putting the needs of their organizations before themselves.

Message from Pro Chancellor of Symbiosis International (Deemed University) & Principal Director, Symbiosis
The Symbiosis School of Media & Communication, Bengaluru, is sure to make its mark in the discerning Silicon Vally of India. You could not have chosen a better time to be a part of this magnificient Institute, as we are commemorating the 75th Birthday Celebrations of our beloved Founder President and Chancellor Prof. Dr. S.B. Mujumdar.
Dr. Mujumdar’s ethos in the creation of this great Institution has been the famous line from the Upanishads “Vasudaiva Kutumbakam” Today the world is talking of ‘global village’ and ‘globalization’. Globalization by definition is ‘the process of transformation of local phenomena into global ones, a process by which the people of the world are unified into a single society and function together’. While globalization started as an economic phenomenon driven by business interests, we witnessed this forty years ago when the idea of Symbiosis was created by our guiding force, Dr. Mujumdar. This has remained as the single most driving force throughout the Symbiosis journey over the past four decades.
My congratulations to the Director and team of Bengaluru for manifesting this ethos through a platform such as the SIMC which provides for a healthy exchange of thoughts, ideas and information, bridging the big divide of caste, creed, colour and race. For you the student community of SIMC, may the Institute serve as a vehicle of expression in realizing your dreams. Have a dream, realize it and nothing can deter you from achieving your full potential.

Pro Chancellor of Symbiosis International (Deemed University) & Principal Director, Symbiosis.
