Mr Vivek Nair
Presently pursuing MSc Business Management, University of Salford, Manchester

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.

Ashutosh Rai
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.

Vishnu Vijay Sankar
Probationary Officer, Federal Bank

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has done an exceptional job in helping me to widen my capacity to learn and gain knowledge. This platform has played a vital role in creating a solid base for my career with it’s world class faculty, value driven curriculum, skill building exercises, research led learning experiences, exemplary placement assistance and value added socially responsible activities. To this day, I’m grateful for the exposure I got from my life changing experience at Amrita.

Sree Parvathy
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.

Ardra Syam

Words can’t describe how thankful I am to all the core faculties at Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham.I thank my Almighty, Amma for all the learning experiences and opportunities she has provided to the students through Amrita educational institutions.The experiential learning culture of Amrita has motivated me to pursue my post graduation in MBA-MS from Bengaluru campus after my undergraduation in BBM from Amritapuri campus. Life at both Amritapuri and Bengaluru campuses made me become more visionary and efficient in life. With the help of dedicated faculties, great facilities and great campus placements Amrita Institutions have provided me a second home which has helped me in driving a successful professional and personal life.

(Tax Consultant I, Deloitte Tax, LLP) (Ex Amritian : BBM Amritapuri Campus(2014-2017), MBA(Major- Finance) Coimbatore Campus (2017-2019)

Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham has a lot to offer to its students, including a beautiful campus, an opportunity to be part of many social activities and an amazing set of faculties who help you, both at professional and a personal front. My BBM Degree at Amritapuri Campus gave me a clearer insight into my chosen field of career. I further chose to continue with Amrita by pursuing MBA at the Coimbatore campus where I discovered my passion for Finance. Now with the help of campus placement I am happily placed at Deloitte. I am greatly thankful to my institution and my gurus who helped me along this journey.

Varsha Sureshkumar
BBM (2009-12); MBA (2012-14), 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.

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.

Amrita AHEAD BCOM, 2021, CA Student

I am a student pursuing online program, to be specific in taxation and finance from Amrita AHEAD, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. I am a CA student and impressed with the flexibility Amrita has offered to me. Yes, offline campus is fun but for a professional student it is difficult to manage attendance criteria. Benefits of virtual learning cannot be ignored. The faculty at Amrita is always with you to clear your doubts and we have weekly live sessions for the same. Subjects like cultural education will teach you a lot I guarantee. I am having a good time here at Amrita and it offers quality level education at a lower cost. They have a flexible schedule designed and unlike on campus programs, one can have access to the study materials at his convenience. You can rewatch lectures at your own pace. Amrita is a very good option and you can blindly trust the faculty here. I have also made good friends here and we help each other with doubts, assignments etc. If you need flexibility, good faculty, quality education at your door step, Amrita is a good option. And yes, Online programs are as good as on campus programs if you are student enrolled in professional course like CA, CS, CMA so on or if you are person working.

Vigneshwaran M

Online mode of graduation would be flexible for students like me who are pursuing CA or any other professional course. I looked for all Universities which offer online degree and finally shortlisted a few. In that, Amrita AHEAD was my first choice as there was excellent facilities and other opportunities like additional courses, entrepreneurship etc. Finally, I got admitted into Amrita and the course content is really amazing. The support staffs are very helpful in reaching out to resolve our doubts. The LMS portal is user friendly and faculties clear our doubts with patience. I am happy that I had chosen a right path for my future.
