Symbiosis School of Banking & Finance (SSBF) was established to address the growing demand for trained workforce in the Banking and Financial Services Sector. Given that a strong and resilient banking system is critical for fuelling and sustaining growth, the importance of having industry-ready manpower cannot be over-emphasized. The MBA (Banking and Finance) being offered by SSBF has been designed to provide the necessary education and skill-set to equip students to innovate, manage, lead and take on the challenges of this increasingly complex and dynamic BFSI sector in the wake of constant functional and technological changes. SSBF enhances the awareness and widens the perspectives of its students placing before them the challenges facing the BFSI sector that need constant attention, study and scrutiny. SSBF is thus committed to provide an environment that facilitates learning and development of well-rounded personalities such that they leave the portals of the institute as industry-ready professionals.

"Banking sector is increasing in scale and complexity. There is need to recruit and train the additional staff as public sector banks will have to face the challenge of retirement of a large part of their workforce. Some estimates suggest that close to about 500,000 employees of public sector banks would retire over next five years. Apart from this, the Banking & Financial Services Industry as a whole is on the path of growth and is at the same time wrought with challenges. This sector needs more and more readily employable trained professionals to rise up to the occasion. It is in recognition of this need that we have set up Symbiosis School of Banking Management. I am confident that the students are adequately equipped with the knowledge and trained with the necessary skill sets".

“With the potential to become the fifth largest banking industry in the world by 2020 and third largest by 2025 India’s banking and financial sector has been expanding rapidly. This sector needs trained professionals to rise up to the occasion. With this view in mind, the University has set up Symbiosis School of Banking and Finance and I am confident that the students here are trained with the necessary skill sets and competencies to be readily employable for the BFSI."

Collective wisdom as a worldview is a break with classical ideas of group behavior that are defined by singular determinants such as motivation, leadership, or interpersonal communication. It is instead an expression of the belief that there exists a field of collective consciousness that is real and influential, yet invisible.
"The Power of Collective Wisdom"by Alan Briskin, Sheryl Erickson, John Ott, Tom Callanan
We at SSBF believe in the power of collective wisdom and are privileged to have the following very experienced and accomplished professionals to guide us and give direction to the institute.
