“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.”

“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.”

Arun Kumar
Group CEO, Strides Arcolab Ltd.

“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.”

Arun Malhotra
General Manager-Marketing Strategy & Development, Maruti Udyog Ltd.

“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 programs for company executives.”

Biju Joseph Dominic
Vice President, Mudra Communications Ltd.

“I should say the main strength of your institute is the quality of the faculty, many of them have decades of experience in the industry. It is rare thing in the management academic world. I think you have all the ingredients to create a great management institute. All the best.”

Dibyendu Kumar
Head, International Business (Cars), Tata Motors

“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.”

Jitesh Mukundan
Vice-President, J P Morgan, Bangalore

“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. I 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.”

“A key differentiator for any B-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 – a quality unparalleled and unmatched anywhere.”

Sachin Khandelwal
Head – Vehicle Finance, ICICI Bank

“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.”

R. S. Rajan
Vice President – Consumer Products Division Ion Exchange India Ltd.

“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.”

Senior Vice President , Naukri.Com

“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.”
