"My life at Amrita School of Business was a turning point in my career. Here in my present job as Joint Director Automation I have been able to develop a comprehensive automation plan, namely, WAN based on VPN, ERP solution and BPR for the Corps of Engineers of the Indian Army. I attribute my professional competence to the state of the art education and the continuous support I have had from ASB. The main differentiator is that as alumni I have been able to continuously seek and obtain knowledge from the Institute. This has given me the confidence to face the challenges as I can bank upon Amrita for any knowledge related issues not only because the institute is supportive to the alumni but also because of the state of the art technology. The clean campus, the serene atmosphere and the environment friendly outlook coupled with an excellent infrastructure makes it an ideal cradle for harnessing knowledge." Interview with Lt.Col.Korath

A key differentiator for any B ï¿½ School is its faculty & Amrita School of Business has been blessed with an envious team of highly qualified faculty that not every institute can offer. Though we graduated a couple of years back, they still continue to be part of our lives as mentors, friends & above all an epitome of unconditional support and love ï¿½ a quality unparalleled and unmatched anywhere. To quote John Ruskin ï¿½The entire object of true education, is to make people not merely do the right thing, but to enjoy right things; not merely industrious, but to love industry; not merely learned, but to love knowledge. "
We are glad we could be part of Amrita School of Business, an incubator of creativity and ideation, a melting pot of diverse cultures, traditions & educational backgrounds alike.

“My two year stint with ASB was a very enriching experience. The management programme is broad-based and specialized in business education, which helped me to counter the conflicting situations in the business environment with elan and confidence. It has helped me to develop the basics of business methodology with integrity wherein I am able to apply the same in the day to day transactions and thereby leading an effective and qualitative performance. ASB has led the foundation of the ethics in management that has helped me build blocks of practical experiences which continues till date. Am grateful to the entire team of ASB for providing me such a wonderful opportunity to be a part of the first batch of ASB, Coimbatore.”

As W. B. Yeats said ï¿½Education is not the filling of a bucket, but the lighting of a fire.ï¿½ This is exactly what Amrita has done for its students.
An institution par excellence, Amrita School of Business is not just about management education ï¿½ there s a difference about the place you can't put into words. Perhaps Indiaï¿½s most picturesque campus. Ettimadai promotes oneness with nature and others around you. Amrita was an unforgettable experience for me. I believe that my time at Amrita has shaped my life in immeasurably positive ways. I experienced a great deal of personal growth during my time in Amrita, improving specific knowledge bases and various skills.
The faculty and infrastructure are outstanding. All ourfaculty members are positive, hard working, dedicated and accessible professionals. I have gained life long friends, developed invaluable personal and professional skills and established a strong connection with several members of the institution that I am sure will continue to grow.
I am extremely proud to be an Amritian ï¿½ a wonderful place to discover who you really are and where you want to go ï¿½ Forever Amrita School of Business!

".ASB has been a turning point in my life. Two years at ASB has transformed me as an individual and as a professional. The stint has given me a lot of confidence and knowledge to rub shoulders with the best in the industry, and to work for some of the finest companies in the world. Adaptability to changing work environments and the ability to tackle demanding situations are two of the exemplary by-products of the tough, modern and innovative curriculum at ASB."
Raj J. Kurup (Class of 1999), Business Manager - ASEAN, Zensar Technologies (S) Pte Ltd, Singapore
".Excellent infrastructure and well qualified faculty were the prime reasons that prompted me to do my PGDM with Amrita. I had no idea about the changes that this serene campus, its wonderful inmates and the holistic life could bring to my personality. By the time I completed the course, I could feel the difference. Even now, after 5 years in the IT industry, I feel that difference when I compare myself with MBAs from other schools. Whenever asked, on choosing the right business school, my bet is on Amrita School of Business, because MBA is not about learning from books. It's the education that you get from those two years you have spent on campus, an environment which prepares you to face the Corporate world. From Day One, one continues to grow faster and higher, under its top quality management, value based education and the Divine Grace of Amma."

".To tell you the truth life was never easy at Amrita. Solving complex case studies, giving innumerable presentations, attending classes at 11 PM in the night! None of them were easy. But it taught us to think, team-up and challenge ourselves. Today I see a distinct advantage that I have compared to so many others!".
Manoj Kumar Das (Class of 2000), Sr Consultant - Human Capital Ops & Tech, Deloitte Consulting IPL, Madhapur
".I was coached by one of the best set of faculty one can get during the two years of rigorous training to become a successful manager. Faculty at ASB practised a "Learn-by-doing" approach. This helped in gaining in-depth knowledge of the subjects and made learning a pleasure. Our classroom sessions were nothing short of 'Reality playing'. It has been a pleasure to have been taught by such experienced and understanding faculty."
Gopal Gera (Class of 2003), Lead Trainer-Priority Clients, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Company Ltd, Bengaluru
".I guess its one of the longest and the most enjoyable breaks I have ever had all my life. Been to Canada (Ottawa, Montreal, Toronto, Niagra) and in USA to (Buffalo, Long Island, Boston, New York, New Hampshire, Cambridge).Every place was different in its own way. I attended about 4 interviews with Insurance and Banking companies and also took some written tests. All I would like to say is that, my education in Amrita gave me all the confidence to face all these exams and interviews with utmost confidence. My first interview was with an Insurance company, and there, the branch President mentioned that I was the first Indian he had ever interviewed, and also that I was more confident and fluent than most others. After 3 rounds of interviews I was offered the job. The importance of value was another edge I had over others; I am so grateful to all at ASB, who helped me out in my education and personality building, without which I will not be in such a position today."

This is one B school that goes beyond just Management Education.

".For me it was important to be part of a school that provides you the opportunity to interact with the best brains in academics and network with industry talent; a school that would welcome and encourage out-of-the box ideas and at the end of a rigorous two years to make every me an individual to reckon with. I am glad I chose ASB. It was in campus that the entrepreneurial bug bit me and this enabled the plunge I took with a telecom product start-up. I owe my growth at Sify and the contributions to operations, marketing and new product development at Drishti to the unique teaching methods used by ASB. It is a one of a kind B-school."
