An initiative taken by the Vconnect team of SIMS, “Connect With SIMS” aims at providing an interactive platform for aspiring MBA candidates. The idea was conceived in August 2014 under the aegis of Brig. Rajiv Divekar (Retd), Director SIMS and Dr. Suruchi Pandey. Conducting seminars across cities, the session seeks to provide an insight and guide MBA aspirants regarding the SNAP test and SIMS Pune.

An informative session to do away with doubts and myths surrounding the MBA program and SNAP and familiarize to them the new selection process, Connect with SIMS allows the audiences with an opportunity to clarify doubts through a one-on-one interaction with student managers from SIMS.

Hitting the floor with its 1st edition in September,” Connect With SIMS” looks forward to interacting with the vast pool of endeavoring talent in all defence establishments across the country in the following cities-
