TESTIMONIALS

It was indeed a privilege and honour to be at the ASB induction program for the 10th MBA batch 2005-07. I came back from ASB with a deep sense of satisfaction and pride at the value based quality education the organization is providing. I was much impressed with the faculty and leadership at ASB. For me personally it was an enjoyable day away from my daily routine. I was very impressed with the quality of the young students and their level of knowledge and skill sets during my Q&A session. We will be happy to associate ourselves with ASB for colloquiums, etc and look forward to receiving your proposal. We also look forward to be an active corporate in your upcoming campus recruitment program.

The faculty at Amrita School of Business has the best of backgrounds from the best of international universities. But, in my view, what distinguishes them is the refreshing enthusiasm they bring to education- as a process of sharing, as a means of gaining while gladly giving. They are, indeed, true students of teaching! Their commitment to value based management will give the students of ASB a sensitive perspective on success. When the ASB alumni lead businesses of the future they will acknowledge that ASB provided them the essential balance between success and satisfaction.

I have had a short visit to the ASB campus in Dec 2004 and I have seen a PGP student as a summer trainee from close. The quality of the campus infrastructure ( against the backdrop of the serene "Elephant" hills ) and the background of the faculty was a pleasant surprise and way beyond my expectations. Some of the full time Profs come from among the best business schools in the world like Berkeley, Wharton, Kellog, Cornell etc. The summer trainee would compare well with any from the best business schools in India.The differentiator would probably be in the humility and basic human values inculcated in these students. I believe that very soon Amrita Business School will achieve its due recognition and prominence amongst the top Indian Business Schools in line with its actual substance and potential.

"This year we decided to look at Summer Project trainees from ASB. It was yet another summer activity which we do year after year. Albeit, when six of the students started their induction and training with us, we could feel the difference - in their approach, attitude and application. They delivered real time in the marketing and HR areas a quality which helped us gain insights for our decisions and spends in today's competitive environment. Based on our experience, we intend to have a long term association with the School. As far as the students go, we would love to have them as part of our team. My best wishes to the management and faculty of ASB in building young corporate leaders with values."

"The credentials of the ASB faculty are mind boggling- beyond expectations. I also had the opportunity to interact with two ASB students who worked as Summer Trainees with us at Tata Motors. What stood out was their attitude- the enthusiasm and earnestness to learn were tremendous for Phaniraj and Neha. With the quality of faculty, infrastructure, and students that I have observed, I am sure that ASB is going to be among the first rung management schools in India very soon."

ASB MBAs have shown a remarkable ability to learn and do what needs to be done with total commitment. They have gotten to be known for reliability, values, commitment and hard work.

"There is a lot you can replicate about an institution - the infrastructure, faculty, curriculum, industry contacts et al. However, the real value that an institution provides lies in its underlying culture and the core values that students imbibe by just being there. This is something ineffable, something that is neither replicable or even captured, and yet impossible to miss. The ASB students who have been working with us stand out for their integrity, solid ethical foundations, and most importantly the commitment they bring to the workplace and their jobs."

"Amrita School of Business believes in energizing the bright young minds through an environment that stimulates learning. Be it the lush green surrounds with the hills in the backdrop, the harmonious balance of academicians, entrepreneurs and researchers, or the wealth of knowledge available with a faculty team through extensive teaching and research work at well- known Universities across the globe.
The Amrita University has taken a lead in education innovation by launching a satellite network in its campus, which makes remote learning very easy and throws open access to eminent professionals and distinguished professors for the benefit of students."

"In the space of a short period of time, Hewlett-Packard India (HP) and Amrita University have established a distinctive Industry-University Partnership by leveraging their mutual synergies in knowledge creation and application and integration - a unique collaboration where business excellence meets an academics- research combine.
The Amrita fraternity is extensive and impressive - a rare team comprising academicians, management and software professionals and entrepreneur-managers who bring with them rich and varied experience in research, industry and education from India and abroad.
The B-School also boasts full time faculty from premier institutions like Wharton, Kellogg, Cornell, Berkeley, IITs & IIMs - most of whom have worked in global corporate organizations and development projects around the wor ld. Indeed, the Vice-Chancellor is a personal acquaintance and a singularly distinguished academician, who at 33 was one of the Youngest Full Professors at the University of California, San Diego.
The Amrita B-School has been taking the lead to establish several working initiatives with industry. A recent example is the series of MDPs they conducted in the area of Logistics Management and Customer Satisfaction Management in which HP was a keen participant. We look forward to more such initiatives and to a valuable and rewarding association with Amrita."

"I have experienced the Amrita difference from close quarters. At TCS I have been fortunate to travel/work overseas and got an insight into the work ethic in different countries and organizations. The distinctive characteristic that I have found at the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, is the type of orientation and passion that is displayed by the trustees, management, faculty and staff at various levels. Some of the most qualified, experienced faculty/professionals around the world have moved to the Amrita campus with the mission of striving towards newer frontiers in knowledge and learning. The holistic lifestyle that the students enjoy is unique - the impact of which sometimes may be fully understood only later in life.
I have been interacting with the Amrita School of Business and had the opportunity to interface closely with its eminent group of faculty. The School has rich domain experts in key management disciplines - all of them from top US B-Schools or Indian Institutes of Management and Technology. The B-School's initiatives in integrating industry experience and academics through the medium of colloquia and Management Development Programmes is a win-win methodology. In July 2004, for example, TCS had nominated a few managers to a MDP on "Customer Satisfaction Management" conducted by the B-School at their Coimbatore campus. We are now in dialogue with Amrita School of Business for a customized Management Advancement Programme for TCS.
Surely, a strong foundation during youth is the cornerstone of success and a good way of life - and Amrita students enjoy that advantage in good measure. That is why we had no hesitation in admitting our son at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham at Coimbatore."

"I had the opportunity to visit the Amrita School of Business in August 2004 for the first time. Maruti Udyog had actively participated in a MDP on Customer Satisfaction Management conducted by the B-School; wherein Mr. R. Ravi, GM, Network Development was a domain expert. My visit enabled me to have a close interface with this School located in Coimbatore. I was impressed with the excellent infrastructure at the School.
It was during the brainstorming session with the teaching fraternity that I realized that some of the best faculty in the country was working here. As someone who passed out from IIM-C, I told the students that the Amrita B-School Faculty was as good as the best in the country. The future of the School is promising.
Another feature that I found interesting was the existence of an exclusive faculty, who handles a core course on Self Awareness and Personal Growth; and the practice of time tested ancient wisdom like Yoga and Meditation to handle the ills of a stress-filled life. Today, corporate executives lead hyperactive schedules, where work-life balance is getting ignored leading to a stressful family life. This is one area where the Amrita School of Business can carve out a niche in the business world by developing customized programmes for company executives."

"I visited the Amrita Business School in March 2004. Frankly, I had not heard much about the School; so it was with very little expectations that I entered the School. Four hours later I stepped out, quite pleasantly surprised to have seen in place some of the basics for a good management school. The quality of teaching faculty was indeed mind-boggling - people graduating from Schools like Kellogg, Wharton, the IIMs and the IITs were quite a surprise. The same was aptly complemented by managers from industry including all key sectors, with exposures to various fields. The dedication and passion that they displayed about the School can be easily a benchmark for most premier institutes.
The infrastructure was indeed amazing, especially to someone like me who had not had the opportunity to get exposed to such quality of location, infrastructure and environment, in spite of doing my engineering from Delhi and my MBA from Mumbai! I would rate the campus as one of the most conducive across the country for good learning.
And a couple of hours of interaction with the students revealed a good mix and quality of students and showing a lot of future promise as well. With some students from the institute already doing well within the ICICI group, I am sure this School is likely to be soon counted amongst the best in the country.
