From the very beginning, Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication has produced path-breaking ideas which has had a lasting impact on the theory and practice of communication studies. With new modules of communication growing every day, our world is no longer closed up to certain or specific individuals or corporations. Today with the advent of social media and various other digital platforms, technology has given a voice to every person who has an opinion and this has opened up media and communication to the masses. The public are no longer passive users but have become media creators in their own right. In the current age of information, the knowledgeable and connected excel while the ignorant and uninformed trail far behind.
We at Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communications firmly believe in using this immense opportunity to make a difference in the field and guide our students to not only be global leaders but also informed, enlightened citizens. This ensures us that when they finally join the workforce; they are ready for any challenge that is laid out in front of them.
