SCDL has the adequate number of full-time faculty members and more than 350 adjunct faculty members. These do academic counselling, develop the curriculum and assignments and provide feedback to students about their academic levels. These faculty members are part of the Academics department, and they generate a curriculum that is almost identical to a full-time, on-campus management course.

In 2018, SCDL acquired the ISO 9001:2015 certification. This certificate is for SCDL’s successful implementation of the ‘Quality Management System.’ Presence of this certificate proves that this institute is deeply committed to ensuring excellent-quality education through the open and distance learning mode, which leads to skill development and professional growth. The review of this ISO certification is on an annual basis.

While the global boundaries are evaporating, people of diverse age groups, nationalities and cultures are intermixing. In this ‘boundary-less’ environment, education has become the most powerful platform. The arrival of distance learning generated novel opportunities for students to complete their higher education by overcoming the constraints of location and time. Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning provides students such opportunities to flourish in career and life by treading the path of good-quality education.

This institute is the pioneer in India to implement interactive e-learning content in the course curriculum as a supplementary learning methodology. In this methodology, students can have an improved understanding of concepts through examples and case studies. SCDL is the first Indian institute to introduce online assessment systems. This is in tune with its mission to provide learners the essential flexible learning opportunities available anytime and anywhere, which assure top-class flexibility, ease and convenience to dedicated learners.

The Corporate Business Administration program has become tremendously famous among students. Symbiosis Centre for Distance Learning is an education provider to a large count of Indian companies that are at the forefront of the industry.

Many foreign universities approach SCDL for collaborative efforts. This is evidence of our exemplary quality education. SCDL welcomes each one of you to its ‘Global Campus’ to experience unique learning experiences, which are the outcome of quality education, innovative teaching methodologies and sophisticated technologies.
