Inspired by the ideals of 'Vishwa Bharati' of Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore and 'Antar Bharati' of Sane Guruji and with a deep desire to help foreign students, an idea of 'Symbiosis' was conceived by Padma Bhushan Dr. S.B. Mujumdar in the year 1971. The motto of Symbiosis is 'Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam' and truly for the foreign students at Pune it is a 'Home away from Home'.
The Symbiosis Centre of International Education, is responsible for promoting this idea and also facilitates the easy settling in of international students at all our campuses. The University has collaborations with several renowned universities of the world and encourages students and faculty to participate in all their Programmes.
Dr. S.B. Mujumdar, the Founder of Symbiosis International University, has always believed that education has a huge role to play in bringing about social justice, international understanding and equality in society. His innovative ideas and proactive need based educational programmes have made Symbiosis known for its brand of education.
This Summer School is another example of his pioneering thoughts of offering students an opportunity to explore courses outside their conventional academic Programmes.
