“I was inspired by the classes that are of a high standard and my faculty were supportive and motivated me forward. They are always willing to help, not only in education but also in the mental health of the students. The programme also offers students a wide choice of social activities. The environment here is sociable and it feels like a family. Amrita is a pretty safe place to study and live.”
PreppyPick, Founder & CEO
Amrita University is a place where one can learn, make the fullest of their time and enjoy many such life preaching activities. During my stay at Amrita University for a total of three years, I came across a variety of people from different countries and cultures. I had received so many opportunities to express the best version of myself, a big thank you to my ever-inspiring mentors who helped me discover the part of myself that I could present to the world. Amrita is a temple of knowledge and values whereby we can find two types of gurus- Shiksha Guru and Diksha Guru.
"Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham is one of the best colleges in the country with a global reputation that has the best academic excellence and has produced many successful graduates.The university offers research orientated and latest world class education. Along with the most up-to-date facilities and ideal conditions for students, the university provides value education with special focus on life skills which helps students improve their personality and develop a positive attitude towards life. Amrita helped me develop a disciplined life and hone my skills for a successful career. I will forever cherish my life at Amrita. Amrita helped me become the best version of myself. Forever an Amritian!”

Currently pursuing Ph.D. from Amrita School of Business Texas, United States
"It has been more than a decade since I first started at Amrita, and I always look back on my experience with much fondness and gratitude. My love for learning, my love for teaching were both nurtured by Amrita’s wonderful teachers and guides. The education at Amrita instilled in me a strong desire to always do my part for society, no matter how small. It gave me the strength and faith to stay focused on my goals and pursue my dream – as I am doing right now, while finishing my doctoral dissertation in finance. Right from the first day, Amrita’s environment filled us students with a need to explore beyond the classroom. Our assignments and projects throughout our course helped us master the concepts in the classroom, and apply that knowledge outside. From projects like business plan development and attending conferences and seminars, the BBM course helped train managers who had a solid foundation in management, but were aware of the challenges and current issues of the real world. This first step in my academic journey shaped my decision to stay a part of Amrita for my post graduate and doctoral studies. The communication and presentation skills honed through our soft skills classes are invaluable even today as I present my research and findings. The writing assignments and communications courses molded strong written skills – an important tool for any researcher. More than anything, the love and respect for knowledge, learning and a dedication to the world around you – these three qualities have motivated me to pursue my research for the last 5 years, communicate my findings, and constantly strive to make the world a better place. Amrita is a family that always holds you close, and I am blessed to be a part of it.”
Associate - Assurance (Audit)EY
"In 2014, I got that golden opportunity to do BBM in Amrita. Since I was appealed to the efficiencies of the friendly resourceful mentors and of course the inevitable factor "The campus and its qualitative facilities", I decided to do M.Com on the same campus. Thus in 2017 I started my M.Com course and completed it in 2019. In the same year, I got placed in EY. The moments I spent there are still precious & valuable for me. Apart from education for living, Amrita enlightens us with the education for life. I can be a perfect example of that. The person who I was and who I am when I stepped out of the campus are entirely different. The life there transformed me a lot. I was able to build up new capabilities and skills. I as an Amritian and the support of the CIR Department and my teachers has got a vital role in my ability to grab a position in EY. Amrita is having a versatile exposure compared to that of the rest of the colleges.I will cherish those golden days which I had spent in Amrita with my friends & teachers throughout my life, and those days will still remain close to my heart. I feel privileged to be an Amritian now and then.”

"As I sit to pen down my thoughts, I am brimmed with emotions to recall that I was the student of the 1st batch of BBM 14 years ago. I am reminded of many things that have contributed into making of a well-rounded individual. AMRITA is the reason for who I am today. I consider myself more of a Generalist than domain specialist, and the platform to explore my innate qualities, to have the freedom to pose different questions, have healthy discussions on different ideologies, and even try to develop an unmanned VTOL was provided by AMRITA. The programs offered have always been industry relevant. Even as 1st batch, our program was unique from similar courses offered across India. Our University didn’t shy away from offering some advanced management topics viz., Business & Social Environment, Evolution of Indian Business, Workplace Relations & Emotions, (which is Organizational Behaviour & Psychology), Foreign Language & International Culture, IT for Managers, Indian Constitution, Business Law, and Advance Strategic Management with Cases, etc. While these courses were entirely new to us, the pedagogy was lucid. I strongly believe that the environment and people around us are the potential contributors to success and growth, and that is how AMRITA’s BBM program was instrumental to me. This is the place, where I broke my mold and learnt some valuable life lessons. As students at AMRITA, we saw that inclusive growth is given more importance, which ultimately prepares you till the time you reach out in the world. I could see that I was truly fortunate to be a part of something that is world-class. ”
