Symbiosis International University (SIU) is a private coeducational, multi-institutional university located in Pune, Maharashtra, India. It has been given official recognition by the UGC and the AICTE. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council has conferred an 'A' grade to the university. SIU is part of the Symbiosis Society, which is its managing body.

The society was established in 1971 by Padmashree S. B. Mujumdar. It was given autonomous status in 2002 by the Ministry of Human Resources Development[3] and since then has opened many more institutes affiliated with it.

Symbiosis International University has 28 academic institutions[4] spread over ten locations in Pune, Noida, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Nashik.[1] All form part of the Symbiosis Society, with the other institutes in the society being affiliated with other bodies. The School of Law, School of Liberal Arts, Engineering, Management, Economics and Mass Communication are highly renowned institutions within the country.[citation needed] The Symbiosis Law School in Noida is also among the top law colleges in the country.[citation needed]

History[edit]

The first institutions belonging to the Symbiosis Society were established in 1971 and were affiliated to the University of Pune. Established in 1971 under the patronage of S. B. Mujumdar, president and founding director, the Symbiosis Society is registered under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 and the Bombay Public Trust, Act, 1950. The principal director is Dr. Vidya Yeravdekar.

In 2002, as part of a larger program to grant autonomy to institutions of academic excellence, the Ministry of Human Resources Development conferred the "Deemed to be University" status on three institutes under the Symbiosis umbrella: the Symbiosis Institute of Computer Studies and Research, Symbiosis Institute of Business Management(SIBM) and Symbiosis Society's Law College.[3] In 2006 the University Grants Commission withdrew the word "Deemed" and renamed the institution as "Symbiosis International University".[citation needed] The song of the university is composed and sung by Maharashtran singer/composer 'Sanjay Gite' with lyrics by Dr. Satish Kulkarni Pimpalgaonkar.
