The online programmes have been developed by experts from the top Symbiosis institutes in India, designed in line with the regular programmes, but will be offered through online learning. Delivering digital education supported by e-content and e-tutorial, followed by discussion for peer learning and assessments will help us empower the youth of the country to unlock their career potential.”
The online degree accorded by SSODL is at par with the regular and offline modes. Guided by learned academic and industry experts, the online Management, Technology and Humanities programmes at SSODL follow a case-based learning methodology that supports self-paced learning (access to recorded sessions), without the need to visit campus. Students also get the opportunity to interact with the faculty for live lectures and discussion forums or to address any curriculum-based query.
In addition, students of the online programmes also undergo workshops and boot camps to develop entrepreneurship and leadership skills. The programmes also offer excellent peer networking opportunities to the enrolled students to help them navigate the professional world. Further, students undergo online assessments in an easy and accessible manner.
Interested candidates can register for their choice of programme online and pay the registration fee, virtually to secure registration. They can attach the scanned copy of the required documents for verification by SSODL and then pay the programme fee online. Upon completion of the payment process, candidates would need to take a printout of the submitted application form and courier it to SSODL along with the photocopies of required documents.
